Ancestor Info
Name: Thomas Coke GloverRank: Lt. Colonel Company: A

Thomas Coke Glover was a successful surgeon practicing medicine in Campbell, Georgia. When the call to arms came, he chose to fight rather than serve as a surgeon. He was responsible for the formation of Company A 21st Georgia and was elected a major, and company commander. His unit was assigned to the Army of Northern Virginia, where he led his company in over 100 battles. He received command of the 21st Georgia Regiment during the battle of Antietam, but only a short time later was severely wounded leading his men in the battle at Mumma's farm. A description of the event can be read in John M. Priest's book 'ANTIETAM---The Soldiers' Battle.' Lt. Col. Glover was later mortally wounded in the third battle of Winchester, VA, and is buried in the Confederate Section of Mount Hebron Church Cemetery in Winchester, VA.
