Oct 8, 1862 - Posted in the North Carolina Standard, Raleigh, NC - To the Citizens of Randolph County: On going into battle at Sharpsburg, Maryland, on the 17th, the men of the 46th Regiment were ordered to throw off their knapsacks, blankets, etc. After the battle they were ordered off in another direction and lost both clothing and blankets. They will very soon need winter clothing and can draw that from the government but blankets, socks, etc. are very scarce. About forty men of Company G are thus deprived of these articles and we therefore appeal to the generosity of our friends for help. Please deliver what you can to Rev. B. Craven, Trinity College or John B. Troy at Troy's Store on or before the 12th October and they will promptly forward the material. O.W. Carr Captain, Company "G".
