Company H "Stanly Marksmen", 14th North Carolina Infantry "Last At Appomattox!", Ramseur's Brigade, Army of Northern Virginia, C.S.A.

Resided in Stanly County, N.C., where he enlisted at age 20, September 5, 1861.
Wounded severely at or near Malvern Hill, Virginia, on or about 7/1/1862; rejoined the company prior to 12/5/1862.
Wounded slightly at Fredericksburg, Virginia, 12/13/1862.
Mortally wounded in the lungs at Spotsylvania Court House, Virginia, 5/12/1864.

"At Spottsylvania, May 12, a memorable day, Ramseur's brigade advanced, driving the blue-clad soldiers from a first line of breastworks and then rushing to a second, stronger line. When the 14th regiment, on the left, reached the near side of the works, the situation of its fellow-regiment, the 30th North Carolina, on the right, became grave. Going to the rescue the 14th drove into traverses and ousted the Federals at the point of the bayonet." [Transcribed from the Asheville Citizen-Times, Sunday, December 24, 1961.]
