During the Civil War David Arrant, Jr. was sent to fight at Vicksburg, Mississippi. During one of the battles he was shot in the eye. He lost the sight in that eye and also had to live with the facial scar it left. Everyone said he was one ugly looking man but all agreed he had the best nature. The lead from the shot was not removed. It was many years later when the shot finally worked its way to the surface of his skin and it could be removed.
