I took many pictures, of both monuments, and the area. I took pictures of all the names there, at two monuments. So this will be the subject of my next few posts. I also added a tab under pages/pictures so that after this post isn't visible, the pictures will be easily accessible.
Here is a muster roll picture showing my ancestor Alvy Dortch. He was only 17 years old in Point Lookout, already orphaned. He did make it out alive, later married, had 11 children, and raised two grandchildren. (Image downloaded from Fold3.) Click on images to view full screen.

At the base of the monument, all the names and unit are inscribed. Here is an example. Fletcher Floyd and Elizabeth Mathis had several sons join the confederacy. They lived awhile in Brunswick, VA, then Warren, NC. Wyatt Floyd died at the Spotsylvania courthouse battle and I have his tombstone picture. His daughter Mattie Floyd married Charles Gray. Fletcher Floyd had another son Charles Floyd who died at Point Lookout. Here is his name on the monument:
