William Elias James, Jr was Sergeant, Company F, 8th South Carolina Infantry when he was wounded at Sharpsburg. By the end of the war he was First Lieutenant. Here are two views of him. On the right is his photograph from the Darlington County Historical Commission and Museum. The picture on the left is from a poster display that appears to be a paste-up of his head from the other photograph superimposed on a person in civilian clothes (from his Findagrave memorial, contributed by Bob Jones).
