Boley Embry Lord was a 22 year old private in the 24th Georgia Infantry when he was severely wounded by a gunshot to his left leg in action at Crampton’s Gap on South Mountain on 14 September 1862. He was captured there and in US Army prison hospitals into April 1863, when he was finally exchanged to go home.

Here he is many years later with his wife Margaret in a photograph kindly shared by great-great grandson Keith Evans.
