Tracing the History of the First Georgia Volunteer Infantry (Ramsey’s) and the commands to which it belonged.
"Peculiarly distinguished among the advance guard, where all were distinguished, must be recorded . . . Private J. W. Brown, of Company F, First Georgia Regiment, who, upon hearing the order to fall back, exclaimed, 'I will give them one more shot before I leave,' and while ramming down his twenty-ninth cartridge fell dead at his post." - General Henry R. Jackson in his report of the Battle of Greenbrier River.

I would like to wish one and all a safe and Happy Thanksgiving! My best wishes go out to you and your families. And a special greeting to all of our men and women in uniform this holiday - thank you for your service.
I have had a lifelong interest in reading about and researching the War Between the States. I enjoyed reenacting for eighteen years, most of that time with the 7th Florida Infantry (recreated). My ancestor, William Henry Marshall, served in the Dahlonega Volunteers, Company “H” of the First Georgia Volunteer Infantry Regiment (Ramsey's).
