George Henry Moye - Captain   
My GrGrGr Grandfather, commissioned 14Dec1860-36th Regiment,1st Brigade,6th Division-Militia of State of Al.-AVC. When Ala, went Regular Army, he was re-commissioned Lt. and later promoted to Capt. Co-A. He recruited Co.A-23rd Infantry, and resigned commission on 30Nov1863, for Typhoid, Yellow Fever and Pneumonia. In early March,1864, he presented the 23rd's Battle Flag (made from the silk Ballgowns of the women of Camden, Al), which now rests in the Al.State Archives-Montgomery, Al. His eldest son,George William Moye, enlisted as a Pvt.-Co.A, parolled at Vicksburg, 4July1863,(signing parole as G W Moyer)captured in Winter64,sent to Camp Chase,Oh and released on 31July1865, after refusing to sign loyalty to USA. Note: I possess written original documentation, of all the above, including the silk purchase receipt, which his wife Anna M Moye contributed, with the other women of Camden,Al., for the material making the 23rd's Battle Flag, that was presented to the Regiment early March 1864.

Company A
George William Moye - Private   
This private,age 17, joined 14Dec1860, in 36thReg, 1st Brigade, 6Div, of the Militia if the State of Alabama.
When Ala, went Regular Army, this Regiment was renumerated as the 23rd Regiment, CSA. He followed his father, Lt./Capt. G H Moye, in the formation of Co. A, probably being one of the first Privates recruited. He was with the 23rd, at Vicksburg and in front of Grant and Sherman, 18 hours after every other Regiment,except 20th Al and Texas Regiment, was called back into the protection of Vicksburg...causing much injury to the enemy and little casualties, in their regiment. On 4July1863, he was parolled, but either signed as GW Moyer, or was misunderstood by the deaf US SGT, who was attempting to understand perfect Wilcox County English. Either way, his Honor was preserved, when he was parolled for 30 days, the Regiment was exchanged 100yrs, to the day of my birthday-12 Sept1863, re-equipped and sent to Bragg, Nov1863. In the winter of 1864, GW moye was captured, sent to Camp Chase, Ohio, but was not released until 31 July 1865! 90 days AFTER the cessation of hostilities and began his walk back to Patsburg-Luverne, Al...carrying the sabre, which has been in my possession, for 40 yrs. Evidently, he refused to sign the oath of allegiance to the USA...rebellious to the end. Attached to this Regiment, he saw some major battles, prior to his capture...Thank you GrGrGr Uncle George William Moye! I will Honor your service and sacrifice, forever.
