Neal Cameron Graham Private
Company H, 26th North Carolina State Troops

Service Record Joined the "Moore Independents" at Carthage in the spring of 1861. This unit formally organized on May 13th, prior to secession, and eventually became Company H of the 26th Regiment, North Carolina Infantry. The first company of the 26th to form, the company was "tendered and accepted" on June 3, 1861. Company muster tolls record Private Graham as present throughout the war with the exception of a brief sick furlough in the fall of 1864.

The 26th went on to defend Fort Macon and New Bern from Federal assault, nearly overran Federal positions in the Seven Day's Battle at Malvern Hill, and saw action at Gettysburg in Pettigrew's Brigade, Heth's Dvision, Hill's Corps. At Gettysburg the unit distinguished itself, forcing the 23th Michigan to withdraw from a "position of strength" at Willoughby Run (McPherson Ridge). Two days later, the 26th participated in the Pettigrew-Trimble-Pickett Assault on Cemetery Ridge, achieving the furthest advance of the assault, with the regimental colors reaching the Federal works. The 26th had the tragic distinction of having the highest regimental casualties of either side during the war.

Neill was captured at Hatcher's Run, Virginia on March 25, 1865, and was sent to the prison camp at Point Lookout, Maryland. He was paroled on Oath of Allegiance on June 27, 1865. The parole record describes him with light complexion, black hair, dark brown eyes, and a height of 5'8 . Private Graham was listed on a Roll of Honor for Company H of the 26th North Carolina.
