BIG GREEN JOINED THE CONFEDERATE ARMY, AND WAS IN COMPANY C OF THE 14TH REGIMENT. HE STILL HAD A FIREY TEMPER AND DID NOT TAKE ORDERS WELL. HE GOT INTO A FIGHT WITH A YOUNG OFFICER AND DESERTED RATHER THAN FACE THE MILITARY JUSTICE FOR STRIKING AN OFFICER.

BIG GREEN RETURNED TO PIKE COUNTY BUT HAD TO STAY ON THE RUN TO AVOID BOTH CONFEDERATE AND YANKEE SOLDIERS. BIG GREEN STILL LOVED MOLLY BLACKBURN AND THEY RESUMED THEIR RELATIONSHIP DURING THIS TIME. HER HUSBAND, JEREMIAH BROWN WAS A YANKEE SOLDIER, IN THE 39TH KY INFANTRY.

AT THE END OF THE WAR, BOTH BIG GREEN AND MOLLY LEFT THEIR FAMILIES AND OBTAINED DIVORCES FROM THEIR FIRST SPOUCES. THIS WAS A DIFFICULT TASK IN THOSE DAYS, BUT FINALLY BIG GREEN AND MOLLY WERE MARRIED.

BIG GREEN'S BROTHER, REUBIN THOUGHT IT WAS WRONG FOR HIM TO LEAVE HIS FAMILY AND ONCE SAID TO HIM, "GREEN, YOU WILL GO TO HELL FOR WHAT YOU HAVE DONE."

GREEN REPLIED, "BROTHER, I WILL FACE HELL LIKE JEFFERY FACED THE CAT."(S)
