Wounded seven times?

3 July 2020

The stone of 28 year old farmer William F. Harris, a Private in the 7th South Carolina Infantry.

He was a recent recruit who enlisted in August 1862 and saw his first combat in Maryland. He was mortally wounded at Sharpsburg on 17 September and died at home a little over two weeks later.

There’s quite a story behind “wounded seven times” noted on his stone, no doubt.

Let me know if you have any details, won’t you please?
