  • Notes 
    • Abner B. Smith was reared in Campbell county, the war being the first great event of his quiet life. When but eighteen years of age, in June of 1861, he enlisted as a private in Company C, Nineteenth Georgia Regiment. In 1863 he was made a lieutenant of his company, in which capacity he served until he surrendered at Salem, North Carolina. He was mustered into service at Lynchburg, and was in the battles of Seven Pines and seven day’s fight around Richmond, but was sick in the hospital during second Manassas. When he recovered he joined his command at Shepherdstown, Md., and was in the battles of Fredericksberg, the Wilderness, and was at Richmond when the enemy made a raid on that city, while Lee was at Gettysburg. He was also at the siege of Charleston, the battle of Ocean Pond, Fla.; Drury’s Bluff and Cold Harbor; then in the trenches at Petersburg during the winter, where he took part in a large number of skirmishes of that eventful period. During Mr. Smith’s service he participated in some of the most hotly contested battles of the war. In the fight at Ocean Pond, Fla., his brigade did most of the fighting. At one time they were stationed near where the famous mine explosion occurred. He was at the fall of Fort Fisher and at the battle of Kingston, his last fight being with Sherman in the last battle of the war - Bentonville.
