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.

Happy Memorial Day
Another Memorial Day weekend has rolled around, and I would again like to extend my thanks to those in uniform, along with their families, for the sacrifices they make to keep this country safe.
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).
