Lt T J Carver

29 August 2020

This is Thomas Jefferson Carver, Jr who enlisted in April 1861, age 18, as a Private in the 3rd Alabama Infantry. Known as Jeff, he was among the very first Confederate troops to cross the Potomac into Maryland at the start of the Campaign on 4 September 1862. He was seriously wounded at Turner’s Gap on the 14th and later had commissioned service. This photograph of him in a Lieutenant’s uniform was contributed to Findagrave by Charles B Moore (?).
