My current priority is to dig deeper to find soldiers killed on the Maryland Campaign of 1862 that I have missed in previous research.

At the moment I’m using Confederate States Army Casualty Lists and Narrative Reports (RG 109, NARA), in particular a list of the casualties in the 23rd South Carolina Infantry at Manasssas, South Mountain, and Sharpsburg in August and September 1862. A portion above. It may have been written by Captain S.A. Durham of Company H, who led the regiment early in the Campaign, (or his Adjutant) to accompany his after-action Reports of 16 October 1862.

I’m just getting started but I am already sorry to find young Private Newell N Hargrove on it. He was just 17 when he was killed at Sharpsburg on 17 September 1862.
