George Harris Camp - Private   

My email address is from the comedy 'Napoleon Dynamite'.

My ancestor was 16 when he enlisted in 1861 and was wounded in the hand by shrapnel and captured at the battle of Antietam while acting as a skirmisher. His 3 middle fingers were amputated while in captivity Fortress Monroe. He was then exchanged in early 1863. He was discharged due to his loss of fingers on his shooting hand.

He carried a Bowie knife and a six shooter in addition to a Springfield rifle. He was an excellent shot and actually killed 2 deer with one shot when they were standing side by side on a slight rise of ground.
