Who are they?

The Museum of the Albemarle is trying to identify the two Confederate soldiers in the photos below. If you recognize them, contact me at rblong@rblong.net .

The one below has been identified as Corp. Stephen N. Woodard, Co. A, 1st NC.

Dear Mr. Long,
The unidentified soldier on your blog site (2nd down) is Corporal Stephen M. Woodard, Company A (the "Albemarle Guards"), 1st Regiment N.C. State Troops. The coat he is wearing is the M1861 state-issued sack coat issued to many of the early war regiments.
Woodard was from Chowan and enlisted 5/18/61. Promoted to corporal in 1863 and captured at Spotsylvania Court House, Virginia, 5/12/64. Confined first at Point Lookout and then Elmira until he was released from the latter place on 6/12/65.
I am trying to find the owner of the Woodard image to gain permission to use it in volume 2 of my book, State Troops and Volunteers, published by the N.C. Office of Archives and History. If you can help me with that, I would be most obliged.
Cordially
Greg Mast

 

Help comes from strange places

Chris M. Perry from Hobbsville has been very helpful with grave photos and information. I got an unexpected assist  from my sister, of all people! (She has no interest in the Civil War but is very interested in geneology.)

Diagram of Fort Oregon

I continue to be amazed at what can be found.

Posted by Bruce Long on January 17, 2015 at 11:43am 0 Comments

I made a trip to Richmond to visit the Virginia Historical Society archives. I knew I would find Capt. Charles Dimmock's description and map of the defenses he designed for Roanoke Island. I Knew I would find I knew I would find Lt. Wright's diary entries concerning the defenses built at Oregon Inlet. What I was not expecting was a diagram of the defenses he laid out and built. It's the first plan for the fort I have ever seen.

Col. Brown's US Senate testimony on the Chicamacomico Affair

Posted by Bruce Long on December 26, 2014 at 6:43pm 0 Comments

Col. Brown had to testify for a 37th Congress Senate Committee concerning the Chicamacomico Affair. The senator from Indiana had entered a bill to indemnify the men and officers of the 20th Indiana for their losses while on Hatteras Island. It was found 3 days after ECU started a ground-penetrating radar sweep in search of a fort that the Indianans may have built while they were at Chicamacomico. Col. Brown's letter makes it look unlikely that there was enough time or entrenching equipment…

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas to all.

150 years ago the US combined army and navy forces failed to take Fort Fisher.  It was only a matter of time before they returned and tried again.

But for 1864 a Christmas miracle for the defenders of Fort Fisher!
