BARBER, M.L.
(1838~1906)

Captain M.L. Barber, Confederate veteran, was born in South Carolina in 1838. He was 23 years old when he joined Company C of the 14th Alabama Infantry. He was 5-10, had dark eyes and hair and a fair complexion. During his service he was promoted to the rank of Captain, and he probably earned it, considering how many times he was wounded in battle. M.L. Barber was mustered into service June 15, 1861. The first time he appears on a hospital roll was March of 1862 but it appears he returned to service that same month. In July of 1862 he was admitted to Chimborazo Hospital in Richmond, Virginia for treatment of gun shot wounds received in engagements around Richmond. His first promotion came September 9, 1862 to Second Lieutenant. He is then present with his company in November of 1862. During the time period of the Battle of Chancellorsville, in April of 1863, Barber, once again, returned to the hospital. He was back with his company in June of 1863. A few months later, he was in the hospital again and was furloughed because of wounds received, beginning September 17, 1863. His leave was extended several times, but he did eventually return to duty because he was shot in the right leg on or about April 13, 1864. At some point, it is uncertain of the exact date, he was promoted to Captain. Barber retired from that position August 19, 1864. He was captured in May of 1865 and paroled at Tallahassee, Florida May 10, 1865.
Captain M.L. Barber died November 29, 1906.
