Notes for William George Barth:|
From Nashville Daily Press and Times newspaper
April 29, 1868
"I.(Isaac) N. Phillips, who shot a man named Barth in Gallatin, a few days ago, was arrested again on Monday on the charge of shooting. The object was, we presume, to get him taken before another magistrate and sent to jail. The attorney for the defense, however, made the officer return the warrant to the magistrate before whom the case was first brought and he postponed an examination until next Friday, admitting the defendant to bail."
From the book REBELLION REVISITED
Chapter XX "Radicalism At High Tide" pg. 314
"The organization of a special all black police force from the state guard company at Gallatin was provocative and dangerous. Its commanding officer, Captain I.N. Phillips, a bona fide carpetbagger, had been a loud advocate of Radical programs ever since his arrival in town near the end of the war."
pg. 315 same book
"Phillips had found himself on the wrong side of the jail house door in the latter part of April, 1868, when he was arrested and charged in the shooting of Martin Barth at Gallatin. Although details are not known, Barth recovered and apparently the charges were dropped. (footnote 19) Barth, a first generation German-American, had come to Gallatin in 1865 to become the L&N agent and telegrapher.(footnote 20)

He was shot by "carpetbaggers" men who came down from the north with clothes and food the government was giving free to the freed slaves and these men were selling it and Wm. G.
