20th Alabama Infantry (CSA)
Ancestor Info
Name: Jonathan SlatonRank: Private Company: F

Jonathan Slaton served in the 20th Alabama Infantry Regiment, Company F. This company was recruited from Perry and Bibb Counties in Alabama and it is uncertain why Jonathan would have gone so far from home to enlist. However, his enlistment is confirmed by several sources. First, his name clearly appears on the muster roll of the 20th. Secondly, his pension and disability application reflects the same. Finally, his headstone shows this as well. On June 22, 1863, he was wounded during the siege of Vicksburg, Mississippi by the explosion of a shell. Fragments of the shell struck him in and below the left eye, causing the loss of sight in that eye. This occurred while he was serving in Company F of the 20th Alabama Infantry Regiment under the command of Colonel Edmund W. Pettus. Pettus’ brigade was serving as a part of the 3rd Brigade under the command of Brig. General S.D. Lee. Lieutenant Uriah B. Dobbins attested to the wound.
