(c. 1845 - 1893)
Home State: Virginia
Branch of Service: Artillery
Age 17, from Richmond, VA, he mustered as Private in Parker's Richmond Battery, Light Artillery on 10 August 1862.
On the Campaign
At Sharpsburg late on the afternoon of 17 September 1862:
... For some reason, the enemy do not reply to our fire briskly. Perhaps our noble infantry have too badly crippled him. We are so weak that when our gun recoils, we lack the strength to push it back into position. But the mere boys are still high in indomitable spirit as the sturdiest men. Little Sam Weisiger is there, and Willie Evans, the youngest of all, and the cheeriest and pluckiest of all.
The rest of the War
He was wounded at Gettysburg, PA on 3 July 1863 and returned to duty in January 1864. He was captured with the battery on 6 April 1865 at Harper's Farm, VA and held at Point Lookout, MD until released on 12 June 1865 after taking the oath of allegiance.
After the War
He was a merchant in Augusta, GA.
