Military Monday- CSA SC Soldiers

I am always looking for newly digitized records and just found a extremely special one. In 2012, the Dead Librarian reported that she found a ledger of CSA Soldiers for the entire state of South Carolina. This book has been digitized and can now be found online! You can read the post on the Dead Librarian’s blog here:

I was specifically looking for “Roll of Company E, Hampton Legion, South Carolina Volunteers, in the Confederate States Provisional Army.” I found the first page of this group on page 325 and it can be seen here:
