You have every right to be Proud. It is important that they are all remembered for the hardships and sacrifices that they endured during that horrible war. Those soldiers wife's and children suffered too during their absence and service. Lest we forget. God Bless them All. You probably already know this, but your Grandfather also qualifies for the Southern Cross grave marker. Congrat's on locating your Grandfathers gravesite. I'm sure it would have meant as much to him to be remembered as it does to you.Means a lot to me
It was put in new back in the 90s in a small family cemetery I didn’t know existed by family members I’ve never met. I’m in the process now getting all his information possible.Congrats & must have been put in new lately as sure looks good for the dates on it! Ma
Hunter, thanks so much for your interest in this. I’ve recently learned that when his original enlistment was up he re-enlisted for the duration of the war. I have learned much about the actions of the 15th NC but am finding it difficult to find more information on the particular actions of Co. A.I just looked your G, Grandfather up for the 15 NC, He's listed on the roster. Regiment was the 5th NC and renamed the 15th NC when mustered in to the Confederacy. Unit saw a lot of action. Very interesting read.
Finding CW info by co unit is sometimes difficult. I like to read about Zuave regiments, North and South. Sometimes when I research a particular battle the regiment was in , sometimes will tell what co was where or what they did.Try researching all that was written about the battles the 15th was in. I do know from reading they were on garrison duty , and missed Gettysburg. But were transfered intime for the Richmond and Petersburg campains. I have found the best way to find small unit action is by looking at detailed maps of the battles. They will sometimes show where co's were stationed. I love CW history. Good luck.Hunter, thanks so much for your interest in this. I’ve recently learned that when his original enlistment was up he re-enlisted for the duration of the war.

My great-grandfather fought in the Civil War, from the state of Kansas ? I don't really know much about his war record but do know that he survived the war & died later! G-Grandma drew on his Civil War pension for her children still living at home! I loved my grandmother, her daughter born among 12 children including sets of twins, I was blessed to be born on G-Grandma's birthday because of my love for my grandma--my dad's mother! Never able to see & love mom's mother because grandma died in 1918 during the Spanish Flu Pandemic--My mother was almost seven & her sister wasn't quite 5; so both grew up without a mother as grandpa never remarried! I thank all our brave men & women who fought in wars to save our Constitution Rights that I pray will not be lost now because , hopefully, U. S. Patriotic Citizens will be willing to rise up & save our Republic form being taken over by EVIL DOERS, whether they be Foreign or Domestic Terrorists or both! Please Lord give us godly wisdom & Your strength to be willing to rise up & fight for the salvation of the USA & its People by Your people, called by Your name Jesus. Praying & telling the Gospel Truth about Your love for us & greatness to willingly help us fight the battles for Righteousness & Morality which is GOOD for all people Christian Believes & sinners alike! Amen! Praise You God in Jesus' name for Your saving grace for the healing of nations & its people! Love You Lord! Your Child, Ma BettyThat I said really cool. I found one my cousins tombstone last year that was in the civil war. And it was a good feeling seeing it.

Are you kidding? Not boring in the least. It looks like your Grandad's regiment fought in and saw action in most battles that My Grandad's regiment was engaged. My Great Great Grandfathers name was Pvt. William E. Jenkins and he served in the 44th Georgia Volunteer Infantry Co. D, Army of Northern Virginia. Keep the info coming.According to the roster of company A and going by soldiers who were listed as killed, wounded, or missing and where it occurred, here’s a list of battles company A was involved in
Malvern Hill/Seven Days Battle
Lees Farm/Lee’s Mill
I hope I’m not boring you guys to death with this thread
