Company C "Anson Guard" from Anson County, N.C., 14th North Carolina Infantry "Last At Appomattox!", Ramseur's Brigade, Army of Northern Virginia, C.S.A.

Resided in Robeson County, N.C., and was by occupation a farmer prior to enlisting in Anson County, N.C., at age 28, April 22, 1861.
Present or accounted for until reported in confinement from November-December, 1861 through February, 1862. Rejoined the company prior to January 1, 1863, and present or accounted for until wounded in the face at Chancellorsville, Virginia, May 3, 1863.
Rejoined the company in September-October, 1863, and present or accounted for until mortally wounded at Spotsylvania Court House, Virginia, May 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.]
