Ancestor Info
Name: William Frierson FultonRank: 2nd Lieutenant Company: A

William Frierson Fulton, Jr., was my g-granduncle. Born 12 Nov. 1840, in Sumter Co., AL, he was a student in his third year at Oglethorpe Univ. in Georgia at the outbreak of the War. He enlisted 26 May 1861 at Gainesville, AL, joining the 'North Sumter Rifles,' a unit that would be designated as Company A, 5th Alabama Infantry Battalion, and assigned to the 5th (Archer's) Brigade, Army of Northern Virginia. The battalion participated in most of the major battles fought by the ANV. Reduced to only three companies after Gettysburg, however, it spent the remainder of the War assigned to provost duty in A. P. Hill's 3rd Corps. William Frierson Fulton served for the War's duration, being paroled 9 April 1865 at Appomattox Court House, VA. Sources: Military service records from the National Archives, including Company Muster-in Roll dated June 23, 1861; Receipt Roll for clothing; Roster of the 5th Battalion Alabama Volunteers; multiple Company Muster Rolls; and, List of Prisoners of War belonging to the Army of Northern Virginia
