"Order A.P. Hill to prepare for action! Pass the infantry to the front! Tell Major Hawks..."

Barbour County CSA in NC troops

This page is in honor of all of those that served the CSA from Barbour County.  If you have lost an ancestor during 1861-1865 you may want to check the Prison of  War records for CSA soldiers held in Union Prison of war camps.   Much has been written about Andersonville but next to nothing has been written about how the CSA troops were treated while held as captives.  We will take a look here at how they were starved when food was available and with held.  Some from Barbour County and surrounding counties were captured at Ft. Morgan, Al. taken to New Orleans, La., placed on ships and sent to New York where they were sent to Elmira "Hellmira", N.Y.  During the Civil War the words Elmira, NY and Point Look Out made the blood of a Southerner run cold.  If you have any information on the prison of war camps that the CSA troops were held in please send it and I will place it here.

Barbour County CSA Roll of Honor
If your ancestor lived in Alabama and served in the Civil War I will be glad to add their names to the 
Roll Of Honor.
"Not for fame or reward, not for place or rank, not lured by ambition or goaded by necessity; but in simple obedience to duty as they understood it; these men suffered all, sacrificed all, dared all, - and died."
--Rev. Dr. Randolph McKim (inscription on Confederate soldiers monument, Arlington National Cemetery)

Factoid:  750,000 men  from the South faced 2 million men  from the North .  2 million men could not defeat 750,000 Southern troops what did defeat them was disease, hunger, lack of money and supplies.

Southern Claims Commission

 The Southern Claims Commission was established to examine and recommend action on monetary damage claims for property that was seized by the U. S. Army for its use from citizens in Southern states that remained loyal to the Union.

The Commission was active from 1871-1880. Typical claim files may contain the claimant's petition; testimony of the claimant and of other persons supporting or opposing the claim; the commissioners' reports; and, on occasion, additional documents submitted in evidence such as proof of title to the property, proof of relationship to the owner, etc.

 All of the Southern Claims Commission files are located at the National Archives. Photocopies of allowed claims are available, however, disallowed and barred claim files have been microfilmed and are available for purchase in this format only.

Finding tools:

 Consolidated Index of Claims Reported by the Commissioner of Claims tothe House of Representatives from 1871-1880. (Washington: U. S. House of Representatives, 1892).

 Mills, Gary B. Southern loyalists in the Civil War : the Southern Claims Commission . (Baltimore, Md.: Genealogical Publishing Co., c1994). "A composite directory of case files created by the U.S. Commissioner of Claims, 1871-1880, including those appealed to the War Claims Committee of the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Court of Claims." This volume indicates whether the calim was allowed, disallowed, or barred and provides sufficient information to request the record from the National Archives.
