Unit Type

61st Alabama Infantry (CSA)
Ancestor Info
Name: Russell John SparksRank: Unknown Company: B

On July 1, 1863, Russell enlisted as a private in Company B, commanded by Capt. Rob A. Peterson, of the 61st Regiment Alabama Infantry, at Gadsen, Alabama. There is some indication that he left that military unit a few days later. Perhaps the news that Vicksburg, Mississippi, had fallen to the Union forces on July 4th had something to do with his decision to leave. (D.Hampton..probably correct as his half-brother ,John T Sparks, was captured at Vicksburg but exchanged and sent home about this time.)
