ARMSTRONG, GEORGE W.
(1837~1905)

He was mustered into service May 16, 1861 in New Orleans for a period of one year. He belonged to Company A of the 1st Texas Infantry. Records show Armstrong was in the hospital in Richmond, Virginia for a brief time, but returned to service. Later records say he was wounded at Sharpsburg, Maryland in September of 1862. Eighty-two percent of his unit was killed at Sharpsburg. After his injury, he returned to Texas on furlough. He appears in records again in November of 1862 where he was detailed in Iron Works. We're not sure where in Texas he was and what his actual duties involved, but we believe Iron Works to be a place where military supplies were made. It is uncertain how long he served at this post.
