About this Item

81pp. Roster of the companies. First edition. Rare. Original printed wraps bound into gray buckram cloth, red spine lettering. A near fine copy. WRIGHT 1048: ‘100 copies.’ History of the Confederate 4th North Carolina Infantry, particularly Companies A, C and H of Iredell County, by a horn player in the regimental band. These three companies, hailing from Statesville and Olin, N.C., primarily, made up the ‘Iredell Blues.’ It was an Army of Northern Virginia regiment that saw as much action as any. As part of Featherston's, G.B. Anderson's, Ramseur's, and Cox's Brigades, it was active at Williamsburg , Seven Pines , and the Seven Days' Battles, then shared in the campaigns of the army from South Mountain to Cold Harbor . Later the 4th was involved in Early's Shenandoah Valley operations and the Appomattox Campaign. It lost 77 killed, 241 wounded, and 6 missing of the 678 engaged at Seven Pines , sustained 58 casualties during the Maryland Campaign, and had 45 killed and 110 wounded at Chancellorsville . At Gettysburg the unit lost thirty-one percent of the 196 engaged, and 18 were disabled at Bristoe. The records show 8 officers and 101 men present on April 9, 1865. Steele’s account, listed in no available reference save WRIGHT, gives sketches of the unit’s activities in the signal battles, as well as rare information on the activities of a Confederate regimental band.
