Charles Henry Simonton - Colonel   
Simonton began as Captain of the Washington Light Infantry in 1860. Simonton was promoted to Colonel after the 25th Infantry Regiment [also called Eutaw Regiment] was organized and mustered into Confederate service in July, 1862. It was formed with men of the 11th Battalion who were from Charleston and the middle region of the state. It served in the Charleston area assigned to the Department of South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida, and in September, 1863, it was placed in General Hagood's Brigade. During the spring of 1864 the unit moved to Virginia and fought at Drewry's Bluff and Cold Harbor. Later it was involved in the Petersburg siege south and north of the James River and the North Carolina Campaign.

Simonton and the remainder of the 25th SCV Regiment were captured near Wilmington NC at the Battle of Town Creek (also known as Battle of Forks Road) on February 20, 1865. After being sent to Point Lookout for one day and Capitol Prison in Washington DC, he arrived at Fort Delaware on March 25, 1865 where he remained until his release on July 24, 1865.

After the war he returned to his home town of Charleston SC where he resumed the practice of law. In September 1886 he was appointed by President Grover Cleveland as the U.S. District Judge for South Carolina. On December 11, 1893, President Cleveland nominated Simonton to the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit. He remained with this court until his death on April 25, 1904.

He is buried in Magnolia Cemetery, Charleston SC.
