The 11th North Carolina
in the Civil War
Drawing on letters, journals, memoirs, official reports, and much, much more, we follow the 11th North Carolina Infantry Regiment from its soldiers' 1861 mustering-in, to their surrender at Appomattox in 1865. The 11th NC fought at Gettysburg, Bristoe Station, The Wilderness, Spotsylvania, Cold Harbor, and Petersburg, before ending up at Appomattox.
In over 1,500 quoted passages we'll hear the boys of 1861 speak about their experiences as war's barbarities changed them from civilians to embattled veteran soldiers.
A complete roster of nearly 1,200 soldiers records each man's name, rank, date of birth, civilian prewar occupation, and a detailed set of remarks about his military activities.
