21st Georgia Infantry (CSA)
Ancestor Info
Name: John B. AkridgeRank: Captain Company: K

Born in 1830 in Clark County, Georgia to Levi and Nancy (Price) Akridge, John was listed as a blacksmith on the 1860 census of Chattooga County, Georgia. He raised Company K of the 21st Georgia Volunteers, Army of Northern Virginia. In August of 1862 he was wounded at Second Manassas. Again wounded May 1, 1863 at Chancellorsville, Virginia. He was considered the 'ole man' of the unit and apparently had a firey temper but was a excellent leader and well respected. May 16, 1864 he was again wounded at Drewery Bluff, Virginia and died of his wounds May 23, 1864. John never married and I have yet to be able to locate his final resting place.
