Wiley Moore fought at Fort Fisher
Wiley Moore joined the Confederate Army and was sent to Fort Fisher as an artilleryman. When his enlistment ended, he joined the Cavalry and was present when Lee surrendered to Grant. He came home to North Carolina on a poor horse, walking most of the way. When he arrived home, my great-grandmother would not let him in the house until he took a bath outside. She burnt his clothes. They also gave his horse a bath.
