Another Photo Of John Riggin

I got another great email from Norm Luppino about a month ago. Among the cool stuff he sent along was the above photo of John Riggin from Brevet Brigadier Generals In Blue. Riggin, of course, was a member of the antebellum Cyclone Club.

Norm also found Riggin's marriage certificate and his information from the 1850 census. Which, of course, is just awesome.

John Riggin is buried in Bradenton Florida in the "Old Manatee Burying Ground" I purchased his picture, commission as Brig. General (signed by Andrew Johnson) AND his sword. I would be interested in learning more about him.

I am insanely jealous. I'll try and drop you an email tomorrow loaded with John Riggin information and a few questions.
