How 'bout the Edisto Rifles, out of Orangeburg. There's a book by William Izlar entitled "The Edisto Rifles". Out of print but available in most genealogical/local history sections of SC libraries. Contains full rosters etc. I believe the unit was also designated as Company G, 25th S.C. Volunteers. There's an account at the Charleston in the Civil War website of the unit's participation in the Battle of Secessionville. Charles L.

Hello, My ancestor Private Joseph B Cusack of the 25th Regiment SC Infantry (Eutaw Regt) was wounded during the opening hours of Antietam. For many months until about feb 1864 he was in and out of Confederate hospitals in Richmond until he was retired and transferred to the "Invalid Corps". Records indicate he was taken as a rebel deserter in Nothern VA, 20 days before Lee surrendered. My question: Has anyone heard of the Invalid Corps? Could it have performed performed light duties to free up soldiers? Please email me with any answers. Email: KBEAN99999@AOL.COM Thanks in advance, Keith

STUCKEY JEAN S. STUCKEY, JStucmom@aol.com My husband is from South Carolina. His Grandfather was Alexander Fairchild Stuckey who served in CO A 14th SC Inf in the Civil War. I see no mention of that unit or of the 14th in your list. When the unit was ordered to Richmond, (all of this is in John Wesley Alexanders Reminisces) the hostilities began on the day of arrival. AF was found by John Wesley Alexander. A minie ball had hit him in the head and gone on thru. Mr Alexander reported him as dead andwent on. All of this ocurred at the Battle of the Wilderness. AF was picked up and taken to a hospital and survived. We understand that he fought on thru the end of the war. He is listed in the Civil War list of persons in that unit as a 1st Sergeant. He returned to Lamar SC where he lived until he died in 1904. He is buried in the Cook Family Cemetery either in Cade or just outside of Lake City. It is also our understanding that he received a pension for the wound and that he had a silver plate in his head. His brother (we Think) was Capt Charles Stuckey who was in the same unit and was wounded. Any information on this individual would be greatly appreciated. There were several other Stuckeys in the same unit.

I am trying to track my grandfather's Confederate service. According to his obituary, Rev. Rufus Franklin Bryant served with the Confederate Army in 1863, 64 and 65 in Captain Tom Love's company. (Another reference I found might also refer to him: "York Co. Confederate Veteran: R. F. Bryant commissary 46th SC Militia.") Rev. Bryant was born in Spartanburg, 1845; died in NC in 1939. He probably joined his unit in the Spartanburg area. I have found no information on Capt. Tom Love's Co. and would like more information on that unit. Any help will be most appreciated.

My GGgrandfather, Robert Cobb, served in Co. C, 2nd SC Rifles. His rank at the end of the was was 3rd Sergeant. He was wounded at Hanover Junction, VA, 25 May 1864 and spent quite a bit of time in hospitals in Richmond, VA. He died 2 Oct 1921 in Oconee Co., SC. I have two questions: 1. Is the 2nd SC Rifles the same as the "2nd Infantry Regiment Rifles"? Sometimes the unit designations are confusing. 2. Does anyone know if there are any information available on the 2nd SC Rifles?
