Company A
Fielding Alexander Scroggins - 2nd Sergeant   
In 'Reminiscences of the Boys in Gray, 1861-1865' by Mamie Yeary, copyright 1912:

F. A. Scroggins, Grosvenor, Texas-Born in Russel County, Ala. Enlisted in the Confederate Army in 1861, at Columia, Ga., as private in Company A, Thirty-first Georgia Regiment. T. J. Phillips, first Colonel. From Savannah, Ga., we went to Virginia. Was captured and paroled at Shepherdstown. Was under Gen. Early in 1864.
Was struck by four minie balls. Was in the charge on Appomattox Court House, in 1865. Was in the battles of Seven Days Around Richmond, Second Manassas, Sharpsburg, Fredericksburg, Gettysburg, Wilderness, Cedar Creek, and Winchester. Was in many skirmishes and smaller battles.

FA Scroggins did not mention that the 31st Georgia was in the Valley with Early, the assalt on Washington DC, at Fort Stedman, and the rear guard at Gettysburg.

The archives in Washington DC has the Confederate service records, it lists FA Scroggins, born June 6, 1839, in Alabama; Enlisted October 5, 1861 as a private; Wounded in the thigh at Sharpsburg, MD on September 17, 1862; Captured and Paroled at Shepherdstown, MD; Appointed 4th Corporal January 6, 1863; 2nd Sergeant, May 3, 1863. Wounded at the Wilderness on May 6, 1864. Paroled at Appomattox Court House, Virginia on April 12, 1865.

At the Surrender at Appomattox there were approximately 120 men present from the 31st Georgia Infantry of that number only 6 men were present in Company A. One Segeant, FA Scroggins, and five privates.

After the war FA Scroggins returned to Alabama, was married, and the moved his family to Texas, they sailed from Mobile to Galveston, took the train to Waco then and Ox-Cart from Waco to Grosvenor, Texas. My Grandmother was his Grand-daughter. When I was about 12 years old, I asked my Grandmother, Nita Armstrong, if she knew her Grandfathers. She said, 'Absolutely'. Then I asked what they did. She told me that her Grandfather Scroggins was in the Army and told her stories of the war. She then told me, 'I cannot remember any of them. All I remember is that he said they marched around a lot.' It was not until I conducted an extensive research project on FA Scroggins and the 31st Georgia did I find out how much he did 'march around'.
