Franklin Lafayette Riley, Jr. Franklin Lafayette Riley "Frank" fought the entire Civil War as a private for the confederate army and was present at Appomattox. He was wounded in the shoulder at Sharpsburg, Sept. A kindly, competent Yankee medic removed the rifle ball from his shoulder with a "shot of hooch" as the only anesthetic. Because of his wounds at Sharpsburg Private Riley was given 60 days furlough.
