Reading: The 28th North Carolina Infantry: A Civil War History and Roster.
Description: In April 1861, public opinion in North Carolina was divided between Union and secession
supporters. It was only after President Lincoln issued his call to arms to subdue the rebel state of South Carolina that North
Carolina seceded, primarily in protest of the order to fight her sister state. Beginning with a look at the prevailing atmosphere
in North Carolina in the spring of 1861, this volume provides an in-depth history of one
Confederate infantry regiment, the 28th North Carolina,
which was comprised primarily of units from the central and southwestern parts of the state. Continued below...
It discusses the various battles in which the 28th North Carolina was involved, including Hanover Court House, Chancellorsville, Gettysburg, Chapin's Farm and Appomattox.
Special emphasis is placed on the thoughts and surviving accounts provided by those soldiers who witnessed firsthand the atrocities
of war. Appendices contain (among other items) a chronology of the 28th North Carolina; a list of casualties among officers;
a list of casualties in the 28th from 1862 through 1864; and the full text of letters from two members of the 28th, the Harding
brothers. About the Author: Retired research assistant
