Latham, Captain commanding regiment Mr. Editor: I see a name advertised in your paper which, I suppose, is mine, as being absent from my regiment, 4th N.C. Cavalry, without leave. You will please do me the justice to state that I have a furlough from the surgeon at the hospital and can show it at any time. I also received a passport for transport to the regiment from the hospital. It does not seem necessary that a sick soldier should be compelled to report to his regiment every month. W.G. Bradsher Camp near Hanover Junction, Dec. 11, 1863 North Carolina Standard Raleigh January 20, 1864 North Carolina officers at Johnson’s Island: In a list of prisoners given by the Cincinnati Commercial we notice the names of Lt. Col. S.H. Boyd, Major C.C. Blacknell, Lt. Col. Edward Cantwell, Lt. Col. S. Clark, Lt. Col. J.A. Graves, Lt. Col. T.L. Hargrove, and Major J.R. Winston North Carolina Standard Raleigh January 27, 1864 William Parrish of Kernersville, N.C., Forsyth Co., requests us to inquire for his two sons, Jesse L. and Hezekiah Parrish. They belong to Company K, 54th N.C.T. Any information about them will be gratefully received by his father at the Kernersville post office. We regret to learn that General R.B. Vance ahs been captured by the enemy. It is reported that he was captured between Greenville and Knoxville. Since the above was typed we have the following from a friend in Marshall, Madison Co. “The news in regard to a portion of General Vance’s command is somewhat unfavorable. He left Asheville and proceeded through some of the western counties and crossing the mountains made his way to Sevier Co., Tenn. He then came upon a Yankee foraging train which he captured and was making his way out when he came upon a blockade in the road on Cosby, surrounding him and it is felt that they have succeeded in capturing him and a large portion of his command. These are the facts as we learned them yesterday from one who made his escape.” North Carolina Standard Raleigh Feb. 3, 1864 Among that distinguished number who by meritorious conduct have placed their names upon the Roll of Honor, will be found the name of J.S. McCurdy, Company K, 7th N.C.T. Although a youth of 16, he enlisted in the second company that left his native county (Alexander) and has been a faithful soldier ever since. He participated in the Battle of Newburn and got to the Army of Virginia where he passed safely through all the hard fought battles from the Seven Days struggle to Gettysburg. Out of 70 odd members of the company who left their homes nearly three years ago with high hopes and brilliant expectations, only 15 of that number, I am informed, are left to tell the sad tale. Some have fallen by disease and others, wounded, are incapable of rendering further service. Sgt. McCurdy is one of the fortunate few who has passed through the fiery ordeal of battle unharmed. He has a wonderful constitution and is almost a stranger to sickness. Possessing a willing disposition , he is always found at his post, ready and willing to perform any duty however arduous and dangerous. Naturally fond of adventure, he seems to glory in active military life. Full of life himself, he seems to impart new life to others. Possessed of a mild disposition, a good and generous heart, an agreeable manner, he is quite a favorite in his regiment. May his life be spared. W.C.G. North Carolina Standard Raleigh Feb. 17, 1864 We learn from the Asheville News that the Yankee forces estimated at about 600 which invaded western North Carolina by the way of the Tennessee River, and got within a few miles of Franklin, Macon Co., on their way to Asheville, were so bushwhacked by Col. Thomas’ Indians that they retreated, leaving one captain, two lieutenants and a considerable number of wounded. Asheville is, therefore, safe for the present. Fayetteville Observer, Monday, May 9, 1864 11th N.C.T.—Col. Collett Leventhorpe, 11th Regiment, has resigned. He entered service in the fall of 1861 and has established a reputation second to no officer of his rank in the Confederate army. He was seriously wounded at Gettysburg, and it is supposed that this is the reason for tendering his resignation. He is succeeded by Lt. Col. William J. Martin, well known as a professor of chemistry at the University of N.C. Major Frank W. Bird of Bertie becomes Lt. Col. Fayetteville Observer, Monday, May 23, 1864 Major General C.M. Wilcox, Commanding Division: General: General Lee directs me to acknowledge the receipt of the flags captured by Lane’s brigade in the gallant charge of yesterday, and to say that they will be forwarded to the Secretary of War and the names of the brave captors. C.S. Venable, A.D.C. The names of the captors are: Company K, 37th N.C.T. who brought off the colors of the 17th Michigan 2nd Lt. O.A. Wiggins, Company E, 37th Regiment, who brought off the colors of the 51st Pennsylvania Private J.H. Wheeler, Co. E, 18th N.C.T., who brought off the colors of the battery of artillery. Richmond Enquirer, 20th Fayetteville Observer, Monday, February 22, 1864 From Kinston: Kinston, Feb. 16 J.S. Brock, William Haddock, G. Hufman, Stephen Jones, A.J. Britton, J.J. Sumerlen, Wm. H. Daughtry, Lewis Taylor, Lewis Freeman, John Freeman of Nethercutt’s Battalion; and W.D. Jones of Wright’s Battalion and Joseph Brock of the 27th N.C. Regiment and C.R. Cuthrell of Latham’s Battery, were all hanged in this place, yesterday, by the order of court martial, for deserting their comrades and taking up arms on the enemy’s side. I am informed that three more of these deserters are to be hanged here in a few days – making 23 in all within the last two weeks, all of whom were captured by our troops in the late expedition against Newbern. Raleigh Confederate Fayetteville Observer, January 25, 1864 The troops known as Whitford’s Battalion have been organized into a regiment and will hereafter be known as the 67th Regiment N.C. Troops.

McArthur is a prisoner of war and in a hospital near Fortress Monroe—Hampton, I think. He was wounded in three places severely. This notice came in a letter to Col. Isham A. Dumas from his nephew J.F. Dumas, who was wounded in the head slightly and a prisoner at the same place. J.P. Dumas was in the 31st Regiment, Company B, who was severely and dangerously wounded near Drewry’s Bluff on the 14th May, while the regiment was skirmishing; the shot passed through his pharynx low down, scarcely missing the carotid and jugular. His many friends will be rejoiced to know he is doing well, and will soon be able to take charge of his command. I supposed Lt. McArthur belongs to the same regiment though it is not so stated in the letter, but it was stated he lived near Fayetteville, N.C.—all that was said about him Yours Truly, D.N.

Blacknell, 22nd N.C.T., was wounded severely in the late Battle of Winchester and left in that place where, of course, he fell into the hands of the enemy. Col.. Blacknell is one of the most gallant officers in the service. We learn that Col. Bennett of the 14th N.C.T. was captured. Major Lambeth of the 14th and Major Cobb of the 2nd were wounded and left in Winchester. Corp. (or Captain?) J. Jones of this city in the command of the Raleigh Rifles was slightly wounded. Confederate Prisoners in the Battle of Winchester The New York Herald publishes a list of the officers captured in the fight near Winchester among whom we find the following North Carolinians: Col.

The enemy are busily building fortifications at Wyatt’s House and the attack is expected to be renewed on the morning of October 1. North Carolina Standard Raleigh October 19, 1864 We list the following casualties of company D, 30th (?) Regiment in the Valley on the 5th inst.: Wounded and Missing—Wm. Coffer Missing: W.C. Reed, J.T. Davis, Francis R. Candy, supposed to have been captured. North Carolina Standard Raleigh November 2, 1864 It has been reported that 400 Home Guards had left Forsythe County for parts unknown. We saw Col. Masten of that company who is the commander of the Home Guards and he informs us that there are only 164 rank and file in that company. Of this number only about four have certainly reached that company. It is suspected that a few others have now reached it; but the whole number does not exceed ten. From all the companies around not exceeding 190 have gone off and doubtless many of them have gone to different regiments in our service. Greensboro Citizen North Carolina Standard Raleigh November 9, 1864 We learn that John D. Fain of Warren has been promoted to Captain in the 33rd Regiment N.C.T. Frank B. Craige of Salisbury and George H. Snow of Raleigh have been made first lieutenants in the same regiment. In the 47th Regiment, W. Hal.

There was quite a severe fight on the 2nd inst., in Watauga County between a party of deserters under one Jim Hartley and a detachment of Home Guards under Major Bingham. Four of the Home Guard were wounded, one mortally. Eight deserters were reported killed and several wounded. A correspondent writing from the army requests that publicity be given to the recent changes which have been made in Kirkland’s and Martin’s brigades. The former is now know as “McRae’s” Brigade in Heth’s Division. The latter as “Kirkland’s” Brigade in Hoke’s Division. The 16th, 42nd, 50th and 60th N.C. Regiments are in Kirkland’s; the 11th, 26th, 44th, 47th, and 52nd regiments are in McRae’s. North Carolina Standard Raleigh November 30, 1864 Indian Chief, C.R. Ship, Charleston, November 21, 1864 Mr. Editor: Thinking that you would like to hear from N.C. Troops about Charleston, I drop you a line. On the 4th inst., 36 of our boys left Camp Holmes to join the Marine Service at this place. They arrived safely and were received on board the Indian Chief, known as the Confederate States receiving ship. We have on board about 150 men most of which are from North Carolina and a goodly number from Chatham County. Our rations are much better than most of us expected. We get plenty of beef and crackers and sugar and coffee. Our duties so far are light. We have prayers every evening in the vessel and the meetings are conducted by our worthy comrades Edmund Wardell and Samuel Womble of Chatham. I hope it will be a consolation to the loved ones at home to hear that amidst all the temptations of camp life, there is a spirit of prayer in our midst.
