Hello! I have always been a huge fan of Civil War history. Perhaps it is because I had 5 GG Uncles who fought for South Carolina. Two of them died. SGT John Thomas Collins died with Co E, 5th SC at Lookout Point, TN (Wills Valley) on October 28, 1863. He was 32 when he died. His four brothers all were in Company H, 12 Regiment. William Mathias Collins died June 8, 1862 at Ashland Hospital. I am still trying to find the exact cause of death, whether it was from an injury from battle or disease. Sadly, he had only enlisted in March of 1862. He was 24 when he died. Two other brothers, Green Berry Collins (18 at enlistment) and James Wesley Collins (26 at enlistment) were both captured on April 2-4, 1865 and then taken to Point Lookout, MD prison camp. Thankfully, the war ended soon thereafter. They were both released on June 26, 1865 after swearing allegiance to the USA. Henry Jackson Collins (enlisted at 18) was wounded on July 28, 1864. He was listed as a POW, but I am unsure of the details. Note: My direct ancestor, Perry Roseboro (Rosborough) Collins had Scarlet fever as a child and was partially deaf, which left him unfit/unable to fight. Maybe I wouldn't be here had he served. I would love to share information and am seeking details on battles they may have been in. Would love to see any pictures relevant to my ancestors and their battles. Thanks!
