Roster of Company F,

2nd N.C. Junior Reserves

Also known as 71st Regiment NC Infantry

(Confederate)

 

 

During the last days of the Civil War, when the surviving Confederate troops were dwindling, the only resource available was to extend the age of the military conscription, which already embraced all able-bodied men between the ages of 18 to 45, except those exempt as State officers, physicians, and ministers of the gospel, and perhaps others. On Feb. 17, 1864, the Confederate Congress passed a law placing in the “Reserves” those between the ages of 17 and 18 and between 45 and 50. It was added that they were not to serve outside of their respective States, but this was soon disregarded out of necessity. Those between 17 and 18 years of age were embodied in April and May, 1864. Those between 45 and 50 were, for the most part, left at home till August and September to make and harvest the crops. Upon reaching the age of 18, many members of the Junior Reserves were sent to other regiments. Company F of the N.C. Junior Reserves was comprised mainly of young men from Union County, N.C.
