Civil War Roster of Davie County, North Carolina: Biographies of 1,147 Men Before, During and After the Conflict
By Mary Alice M. Hasty
It could be said that Davie County, North Carolina, entered the Civil War only reluctantly. As late as February of 1861, a statewide ballot calling for a convention on secession had been defeated by a relatively small margin of votes. In Davie County, however, some 754 people voted against the convention, with only 263 in favor. Yet despite the initial opposition, an enormous number of Davie County men signed up to fight. Out of a population of 6,000, more than 1,200 men served in the Confederate forces, three-fourths of them volunteers. This book seeks to identify every man who either served in a Davie County company or who left Davie County to enlist in another county and to provide as much information as possible concerning each man's military and genealogical history.
