Birth: Jul. 3, 1830
Death: 1907

Civil War Confederate Officer. The 17th Regiment South Carolina Volunteers were of men who were recruited in November, December of 1861 and the early part of 1862. The "Lacy Guards" were South Carolinians who resided in the environs of Yorkville (present day York, SC). At the start, the Guards were mustered into Confederate service as Company E, however, they were re-designated Company K at a later date. The first commander of the Guards was defeated during the reorganization of 1862. Edward Alexander, the son of James Dunlap and Mary Denton Crawford, was instead elected captain on May 1, 1862 (rank backdated to April 28, 1862). Throughout the war, 17th South Carolina crisscrossed the southern Confederacy so repeatedly that they became known as the "Tramp Brigade", and Captain Crawford is "listed as being in every fight that the 17th" was in. He was among the wounded at Second Manassas, and was again wounded in the head at the Battle of the Crater at Petersburg, Virginia. He and his command were surrendered and paroled at Appomattox Court House, Virginia on April 9, 1865.
