14th Georgia Infantry (CSA)
Ancestor Info
Name: Josiah Blair PattersonRank: 1st Lieutenant Company: E

Josiah Blair Patterson of Company E served was a school teacher from Cumming Ga. who enlisted with Lester's Volunteers in Cumming GA in June 1861 at the age of 46. As a young man he had served in the Seminole War (1835-1842). After surviving dozens of engagements (including Gettysburg)he was killed during the Battle of Spotsylvania Courthouse (during Grant's charge of May 12, 1864) on the eastern side of the 'Mule Shoe' salient. According to family history, Josiah was wounded by canister shot and as he was being removed from the field he and his litter bearers were hit again by canister shot, which killed all three men. I am interested in any and all info on the Ga. 14th Infantry Regiment, especially Company E from Cumming GA. (Forsyth County GA).
