38th Arkansas Infantry (CSA)
Ancestor Info
Name: E C EdwardsRank: Private Company: I

E.C. (Elihu Crisp) Edwards enlisted at Sulphur Rock, AR on August 6, 1862. He was born March 13, 1836 in Hardeman CO, TN. He and his family moved to AR around 1855. Military records show that he deserted on June 9, 1865 on the march from Camden, AR to Monroe, LA. The war was over at this point. I presume that the army was on the march to Monroe to officially surrender. E.C. had a wife, a 3-year old and a 5-month old at home. I believe that his father was sick or dead at this time. I suspect that E.C. was in a hurry to get home and that he couldn't see the sense of marching south just to turn around and then march north to home.
