CSA, Private, Company C, 66th Georgia Infantry

The 66th Infantry Regiment [also called 65th Regiment] was organized at Atlanta, Georgia, during the summer of 1863. It was assigned to Wilson's, C.H. Stevens', and H.R. Jackson's Brigade, participated in the campaigns of the Army of Tennessee from Atlanta to Nashville, and ended the war in North Carolina. In December, 1863, this regiment contained 513 men and 419 arms but was greatly reduced when it surrendered on April 26, 1865. Its commanders were Colonel J. Cooper Nisbet, Lieutenant Colonel A.S. Hamilton, and Major R. Newton Hull.

Albert was captured at Decatur, Alabama, Oct 28, 1864, and sent to Camp Douglas, Illinois, prison. Died there of chronic diarrhoea December 14, 1864. He was originally buried in the Chicago City Cemetery but was reinterred with all the Confederate soldiers after the war in Oak Woods Cemetery.

Husband of Lucy Marbury Greer (20 Aug 1825-29 Mar 1885).

Note: One of 6,000 Confederate soldiers buried here who died as Prisoners of War at Camp Douglas in Chicago.
