43rd Georgia Infantry (CSA)
Ancestor Info
Name: Moses Wilkie RiderRank: Private Company: I

My Great Grandfather Moses Rider and three of his brothers joined the 43rd Georgia Infantry in 1862. He and his brothers fought at the Battle of Vicksburg and were captured and exchanged in a POW exchange on the 4th of July 1863. During the next 4 years it appears that three of the four brothers remained together and one was assigned to another company. Moses was captured a second time, (along with his brothers), near Atlanta in 1864. Because of a oath of loyalty they signed to secure their release in Vicksburg, this time there would be no release. At the end of the war Moses and one of his brothers were released from a Yankee prison, Camp Chase Ohio; his other brother David died in Camp Chase from dysentery before the end of the war. Moses returned to his home in Blairsville, Georgia and started a family. One of his sons was my grandfather William James Layfette Rider.
