Soldier Gave Enough, or Had Enough

by | Mar 23, 2015 | Beaufort, Confederate affiliation

I got this information on James Salter Blount, my great-great-grandfather, through genealogy search. My family did not have any stories. James joined the Confederate army at age 19, mustering in in Beaufort County as a sergeant in the 36th Regiment, 2nd Company G. On November 4, 1863, the entire company was transferred to the 13th Battalion, North Carolina Light Artillery as Company D. James was present and accounted for through February of 1865, then was reported “absent without leave.” I’m checking… There’s more to come!
