Cherokee Legion      
Company A
Benjamin Griffith Charles - Private   
Pvt. Charles joined at the beginning of the war in 'Smith's Legion' in Co. B, but later the legion was broken up and the infantry became Co. A, Gilmer Light Guards, in the 65th Georgia.
He fought with this unit through most of its engagements until he received a sick furlough at Dalton, GA and returned home to Ellijay. Before he could return, Gen. Sherman had started what would become known as his Atlanta Campaign, putting Pvt. Charles behind the Union Army. In making his way back to his unit, Pvt. Charles came upon the 4th Georgia Cavalry and rode with them for a short time until the order was given for all Confederates north of the Chattahoochie River who were detached from their units to join with Gen. Wofford and the Georgia State Troops. Pvt. Charles headed this order and served with Gen. Wofford until this force surrendered to the Union on May 25th, 1865. Pvt. Charles is buried with his family in the Ellijay City Cemetery, Ellijay, Ga.

Columbus Cuzzort - Private   
Columbus' surname is also spelled Cozort and Cozzort. He was the younger brother of William Cuzzort (and various spellings) who was a member of the 6th Georgia Cavalry. Both of these units had their origin in the large outfit called Smith's Legion, which was broken down into separate units or cluster units in 1862 or early 1863. Columbus was put on medical leave in 1864 from the military hospital in Loudon, TN and apparently didn't make it back to the 65th. He is not listed as a deserter, though. 'French leave?' He had a widowed mother and several younger sisters trying to run a farm near Livingston, GA, and may have gone home to help. He is buried near where he enlisted, Foster's Mill(s), Floyd Co., GA.
