Civil War Confederate Officer. Among the first men who answered Virginia's call-to-arms was Andrew B. Crawford. In Keysville, Virginia, he volunteered as a Private and began service in Company K, 23rd Virginia Infantry on May 2, 1861. At the end of one year, Crawford had attained the rank of 3rd Lieutenant. Promoted to Captain on September 2, 1862, he greatly distinguished himself soon thereafter during the Battle of Sharpsburg (Antietam). In this bloodiest day of the war, the newly appointed Captain received a dangerous wound to his left arm which necessitated its amputation. After additional time in the enrolling of new recruits, Captain Crawford retired from service due to his disability on November 11, 1864.
