William Henry Edwards - Captain   
My uncle wrote a history of my Great Grandfather, Capt. Bill Edwards in three volumes. Very interesting reading, a lot of it consisting of his personally written memoirs. He tells of many battles in elaborate detail, including a particularly gruesome tale about the Battle of the Crater, in which he used his sword to personally dispatch dozens of Yankees until his pants were 'so stiff with blood he could barely walk'. To his dying day he refused to wear any blue clothing because it was a 'Yankee color'. He passed away on August 9th, 1920.
