(March 8, 1831 - ????) was the Second Missouri Cavalry (C.S.)
's surgeon. After the major fighting at Fort Pillow
was done, Durrett and Lt. J.S. Hay
(Col. Robert McCulloch
's ordinance officer) found Hardy Revelle
, a dry-goods merchant, and confiscated certain of his wares.
The fact that Revelle could subsequently remember Durrett and Hay's names saved him from being shot for pilfering.
F.R. Durrett's recorded role in history appears limited to his time as surgeon for the Second Missouri Cavalry.
