Looking for HITT of Alabama
New Info! I started researching the unit Maberry (my gggrandfather) was in during the civil war. There is info on almost every unit that came from AL, his was the 51st calvary. I've found where the unit was started, the commanders, and a long narrative about the battles and skirmishes they were involved in....and muster rolls!!!
Also new: I already knew he enlisted in 1862 and was wounded at some point. Now I've found out (a different source) where it says he was sick, not injured. This is from a book I found in the Cullman Co, AL, library entitled: "History of St. Clair County AL."
Hitt, Maberry Detailed as Garrison Guard at Marietta, GA, from Sep 1863 to Feb 1864 by Captain Edwards. Sick furlough since the 6th Feb, 1864. Unfit for field duty. Report to General Wright at Atlanta. S.O. 90/4 dated Apri 1, 1864. So much for being a wounded war hero, right? I wonder what he was sick from...Does anyone know what the S.O. 90/4 mean?
I was very excited because this is the only other place (besides Footnote) where I've even seen him mentioned!!! Still looking!
