James Austin Shores was in Co. H of the 5th Ga Infantry until there surrender in NC in 1865. He was my Great Great Grandfather and he lived to be 104. In November of 1864 the 5th Ga was detailed to Florence, SC to guard prisoners at the stockade. I was born less than 2 miles away 102 years later. I now live in walking distance to the old stockade where you can still see the earthen remains of the walls to the prison camp. James Shores died in Lakeland, FL in 1948. He was listed in the muster rolls as 'J Shores'. His father Alexander Shores, Pvt. also fought for the South in the 57th Ga Infantry and he also survived the war. His unit also surrendered in NC in April of 1865
