Re: Capt. Charles J. Bryan - Malvern Pine
In Response To: Capt. Charles J. Bryan - Malvern Pine ()
Captain Charles J. Bryan served in Company C, 3rd Regiment, Alabama Infantry. The unit was organized in April, 1861, at Montgomery, Alabama with men recruited from surrounding counties. It was mustered into Confederate service at Lynchburg, Virginia and totalled 1,000 men. The regiment was subsequently assigned to the Army of Northern Virginia.
I believe Malvern Pine may be the same or in the vicinity of a place called Malvern Hill located in Virginia.
Following excerpt from a brief history of the regiment:
"It lost 38 killed and 122 wounded at Seven Pines and sustained fifty-seven percent casualties of the 345 engaged at Malvern Hill."
The regiment was also active in the campaign that ended at Appomattox.
Excerpt: "In April, 1865, it surrendered with 9 officers and 93 men."
