Private Robert J.M. Barber of Company B, 4th North Carolina Infantry was twice captured during the war: at Frederick on the 1862 Maryland Campaign and in 1864 at Winchester, VA.

After his release in February 1865 he returned home to Rowan County, North Carolina, where, like so many former Confederate soldiers, he signed this document. This copy is from his Compiled Service Record file at the National Archives; I found it online thanks to fold3.
