14th Georgia Infantry (CSA)
Ancestor Info
Name: William Ellijay GilmerRank: Private Company: C

My great grandfather William E. Gilmer was born in Jasper County Georgia on August 14, 1848. In 1861, he enlisted in Jasper Volunteers (Co. C), 14th Gergia Infantry Regiment as a drummer boy. At the battle of Mechanicsville, he threw away his drum and was ordered to pick up a rifle musket. He was possibly the youngest Confederate soldier to become a rifleman. He fought in hard battles throughout the war with the 14th Georgia Infantry and finally deserted the Confederate army at the seige of Petersburg in March 1865 and walked home to Jasper County Georgia. William E. Gilmer moved to Texas in 1872, where he got married and settled in Lampasas County where he remained for the rest of his life.
