American Civil War Soldiers: William Carmichael, Residence: Wilkes Co, NC, Occupation: Merchant, Enlistment Date: 14 Mar 1862, Place: Wilkes Co, NC, Side: Confederacy, State: North Carolina, Record: Enlisted as a 2nd Lieutenant on 14 March 1862 at the age of 18, Promoted to Full 1st Lieutenant on 18 Apr 1862, Commission in Company F, 52nd Infantry Regiment North Carolina on 28 Apr 1862, Promoted to Full Captain on 31 Dec 1864, Sources: 16.
Following information was forwarded by a nephew of Captain William Walter Carmichael:

"Uncle Billy" was from Wilkesboro, Wilkes County, North Carolina and survived Civil War combat at Gettyburg (the first and third day, "Pickett's Charge") at The Wilderness and elsewhere. By the end of the war, as a Captain, he was the commander of the 52nd North Carolina Regiment at Petersburg, Virginia. A few days before the surrender he was captured at Sutherland's Station, VA and was sent to prison at Johnston Island, Ohio. He was released a few months later in the summer of 1865 and returned to North Carolina. In about June, 1870 he went to Abilene, Kansas, then a booming cattle town on the edge of the frontier, and was followed by relatives including his mother and my great grandfather, James A. Hague, a veteran of the 26th North Carolina. Uncle Billy became a merchant in Abilene and was mortally wounded in a dispute over a bill for the care of his cattle in Glasco, Cloud County, Kansas in March of 1872 with Hamilton Henry Dalrymple of Glasco, Kansas. He lingered and finally died of the wound on April 12 of that year. He was a member of the masonic lodge, in Abilene, I presume, as is indicated on his grave marker.

After the death of Uncle Billy Carmichael all the family returned to North Carolina.
