Our heroes...

Company C, 55th Regiment NC Troops
"The Cleveland Grays"

This unit was raised and enlisted in Cleveland County on 29 March 1862. The company functioned as part of the regiment for the entirety of the war and its exploits are reported as part of the regimental history. More detailed information on each of these soldiers can be found in North Carolina Troops 1861-1865 A Roster, Volume X, Infantry, compiled by Weymouth T Jordan, Jr with Unit Histories by Louis H Manarin. All genealogists owe a debt of gratitude to these gentlemen for their wonderful tribute to our ancestors.

(Disclaimer: As no one is perfect, there will be errors in this listing. If you find one please let me know  & I will correct my mistake. I am honored to memorialize these Southern heroes.)
