Capt Warren Alonza Moseley
Birth: Nov. 1, 1839
Union
Union County
South Carolina, USA
Death: Dec. 17, 1912
Macon
Bibb County
Georgia, USA

Born in Union, South Carolina the son of Samuel & Winnifred McWhirter Moseley . On August 5, 1861 Warren Moseley enlisted in Co. H, 4th Georgia Infantry. He was captured at Winchester, Va. in 1862. Released in 1863 Moseley was then a captain in Co. A, 4th Ga. Reserve Cavalry. He surrendered at Milledgeville, Ga in April of 1865.

It is clear from newspaper accounts of his life as a Confederate veteran that he was a man who reveled in this role, attending numerous reunions and using his veteran status to earn some money. Moseley, in essence, spent a good deal of his postwar life as a "professional veteran".

For example, in June 1892 it was reported in the Atlanta Constitution that Mosely would be attending the 4th Georgia annual barbecue and picnic in Jeffersonville. He would be one of the events attractions, and the paper said he would "wear the coat which shows by its numerous bullet holes the number of wounds he received during the war in service of the south."

Moseley was also a pitchman for various products. In newspapers across the country in 1904 and 1905, an advertisement appeared featuring two "famous Confederate Veterans" along with their photographs, who"use and recommend"Duffy's Pure Malt Whiskey. Moseley was one of those famous veterans, and he was quoted as saying"I never felt better in my life, and I owe it all to Duffy's Pure Malt Whiskey. I was wounded eight times during the war and after General Lee's surrender returned home completely broken down. My wounds gave me a good deal of trouble, and I had attacks of extreme weakness, with great loss of blood. Doctors said nothing would enrich my blood and build me up so quickly and thoroughly as Duffy's Malt Whiskey. I took nothing else. Although past 65, I am in perfect physical and mental condition and devote 12 hours a day to my business"
