“Lieutenant George Frederick Abbay (of the Madison Light Artillery, La.), Pro’ted capt. Co[mpany]. K., 1st Miss. Artillery, May 7, 1862.”
From F. Ray Sibley, Jr., Confederate Artillery Organizations: An Alphabetical Listing of the Officers and Batteries of the Confederacy, 1861-1865 (El Dorado Hills, CA: Savas Publishing, 2014), eBook.

“On May 14, 1864, there were about 80 men in the parole camp at Demopolis of the various companies of this regiment, ‘and the regiment is divided, one company acting as horse artillery in the cavalry command of Gen. S. D. Lee, and the others doing provost duty in Mobile.’ The company of horse artillery participated in the battle of Harrisburg on July 14, 1864. The command at Mobile was composed of Companies B, C, D, I, K, which were listed June 1, Capt. George F. Abbay commanding, in Fuller’s Artillery Brigade; and on June 30, Capt. J. L. Bradford commanding, brigade of Gen. Edward Higgins, Mobile.

“… On August 1 the regiment was in camp at the Marshall Place, ‘Camp Parker.’ J. L. Power was appointed Adjutant August 6. The return of August shows the following aggregate enrolled: Ridley, 225; Herrod, 152; Turner, 156; Wofford, 142; Sanderson, 116; Bradford, 145; Cowan, 138; Ralston, 99; Bowman, 123; Abbay, 142; total 1,471, of which 1,022 were present. The regimental headquarters were at Snyder’s Bluff October 4, and at Vicksburg January 19, 1863.

“… Herrod’s, Bradford’s and Abbay’s companies were sent to Port Hudson later in 1862.

“… The Battalion at Port Hudson was no less heroic and devoted. Abbay’s, Bradford’s and Herrod’s companies, at Port Hudson, had two wounded, March 14, 1863, when Admiral Farragut ran the batteries and the man-of-war Mississippi was burned, and other boats driven back, including the Essex. Herrod’s Battery had a prominent part in the fight at Plains Store, near Port Hudson, with the advance of Banks’ army, May 21, 1863. Capt. Herrod and several men were wounded. Lt. Edrington, Sergeant Alex Kerr and Corporal Lee killed. In the same fight Abbay’s Battery was distinguished and suffered severely, twenty-one being killed and wounded, according to Lieut. E. V. Miller. Among the killed were Lieutenant Pierce and First Sergeant H. J. Gorman. 

“During the 50 days’ siege of Port Hudson Sgt. W. B. Mires, of this company, and 6 others were killed. The battalion had lost 11 killed and 33 wounded up to June 1, after which there are no official reports. The three companies were included in the surrender of July 8, after which the officers were sent north to prison camps and the non-commissioned officers and men paroled.”

James Augustus Bryan

“2d Lieutenant 10th North Carolina C. S. A. 1861; 1st Lieutenant Artillery and Ordinance C. S. A. 1861-62; Captain Artillery C. S. A. 1863-65; Major and Quartermaster North Carolina C. S. A. 1865; Member North Carolina Senate 1899-1900; Chairman Board of Commissioners Craven Co., N. C.”
From General Catalogue of Princeton University (Princeton University, 1908), 203.

“Before Sharpsburg: He was studying the law in New Bern when the war began. He was in a local cavalry Company and was commissioned 2nd Lieutenant of Artillery in the State service (Company G, 10th NCST) and was assigned to the staff of Colonel Whitford, Chief of Ordinance at New Bern in April 1861. In August he was commissioned in the Confederate service and joined General Branch’s staff. He was promoted to First Lieutenant 1 July 1862. On the Campaign: He was Brigade Ordnance Officer at Sharpsburg. The rest of the War: After General Branch was killed, he was promoted Captain and was Ordnance Officer for General James B. Lane. In 1865 he resigned his CS commission and was appointed Major and Quartermaster of North Carolina.”
From “Confederate (CSA) Lieutenant James Augustus Bryan,” Antietam on the Web, http://antietam.aotw.org/officers.php?officer_id=9645#note_1_ref.

“During the Civil War, Bryan was a major in the Confederate Army. Returning to his native town after the war, he became an extensive landowner, especially in James City, a settlement across Trent River from New Bern… For some time, Bryan was president of the state-controlled Atlantic and North Carolina Railroad company. From 1880 until his death he was president of the National Bank of New Bern… As a Democrat, Bryan was elected to the 1899 state senate and was instrumental in helping relieve Craven County from Reconstruction policies. That assembly established the modern spelling of New Bern; the final ‘e,’ Bryan and his associates claimed, had been erroneously added by northern soldiers occupying the city in Civil War years.”
From Gertrude S. Carraway, “Bryan, James Augustus,” Dictionary of North Carolina Biography  (University of North Carolina Press: 1979-1996), https://www.ncpedia.org/biography/bryan-james-augustus. 

Battle information: “C.S.A. Branch’s Brigade: In the advance of A. P. Hill’s Division from the Antietam Furnace Road, on the afternoon of September 17th [(1862)], Branch’s Brigade supported the Brigades of Gregg and Archer. It was engaged south of this point, and its commander, Brig. General Branch was killed in the southeast part of the field adjoining this on the south. After the death of General Branch, the command devolved upon Colonel James H. Lane, of the 28th North Carolina, who relieved Toombs’ Brigade of D. R. Jones’ Division at this point. The Brigade remained in this position until the morning of the 19th, when it recrossed the Potomac.”

From General Catalogue of Princeton University (Princeton University, 1908), 204.

“Calvin DeWitt (May 26, 1840-September 2, 1908), Brigadier General, Medical Corps, U. S. Army, was born at Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, the son of Reverend William Radcliffe DeWitt, a Presbyterian minister, and Mary Elizabeth (Wallace) DeWitt. He attended the Harrisburg public schools and the Harrisburg Academy, after which he went to Princeton College where he graduated with the degree of A. B. in 1860. With the clouds of the Civil War gathering he joined in the organization of an infantry company at Harrisburg, and was elected first lieutenant. With the outbreak of war the company refused to go into Federal service, so DeWitt resigned and in October 1861 he was made captain of Company I, 49th Regiment, Pennsylvania Volunteers. His regiment was incorporated into the Army of the Potomac, and with it during the following spring he went through the Peninsular Campaign, taking part in the siege of Yorktown, the battle of Williamsburg, and the seven days of battle in front of Richmond. He participated in the costly attack of the Union forces on Fredericksburg, Virginia, on December 13, 1862, and on January 18, 1863, he tendered his resignation and went back to Princeton College where later that year he was given the degree of A. M. He began the study of medicine in the medical department of New York University, but transferred to Jefferson Medical College where he received his M. D. degree in 1865. He entered the army as an acting assistant surgeon on March 25, 1865, and was sent to duty at the McClellan General Hospital at Fortress Monroe, Virginia. He had three short terms of service with the army and one with the Freedman’s Bureau before he was appointed to the regular corps on May 24, 1867.

From General Catalogue of Princeton University (Princeton University, 1908), 204.

Information on Graham’s Father, Governor William Graham: “Graham supported the Confederate cause to the extent his principles allowed. With Thomas Ruffin, he negotiated the terms by which North Carolina would enter the Confederate States of America; and he remained an active participant in the deliberations of the Convention. But the Civil War was troublesome to him and to many other Southern Unionists. On the one hand, five of his sons were Confederate officers and innumerable relatives and friends were involved militarily. (Three nieces were married to Confederate generals “Stonewall” Jackson, Daniel Harvey Hill, and Rufus Barringer)… His conservative racial views caused him to oppose the enlistment of slaves in Confederate armies. If slavery and the accompanying social system were abolished, he believed, all was lost. When the end was in sight, Graham left Richmond to warn Vance that the Confederacy was collapsing and to advise that North Carolina should look to its own interests. Vance demurred but authorized Graham and David L. Swain to surrender Raleigh to William T. Sherman, whose armies menaced the capital… ”
