Brave North Carolina Patriots

“In the battle (Gettysburg) of the first day, Captain Tuttle’s company (of the 26th North Carolina) went into action with 3 officers and 84 men; all of the officers and 83 of the men were killed or wounded. On the same day, and in the same (Pettigrew’s) brigade, Company C of the 11th North Carolina lost 2 officers killed and 34 of 38 men killed or wounded. Captain Bird of this company, with the 4 remaining men, participated in the charge of the 3rd of July (Pickett’s) and of these the flag-bearer was shot, and the Captain brought out the flag itself. The loss of the 26th North Carolina at Gettysburg was the severest regimental loss during the whole war.”

(Deaths in the Confederate Army, Confederate Veteran Magazine, page 434.)
