Before Sharpsburg

In 1860 he was age 16 year old and lived on his parent's farm near Zebulon in Pike County, GA; his father Patrick Neal Maddux (1801-1870) was also a Methodist minister. The younger Patrick enlisted as a Private in Company A, 13th Georgia Infantry, date not given, but probably in May 1862 based on his pay record.

On the Campaign

He was slightly wounded in the side in action at Sharpsburg on 17 September 1862.

The rest of the War

He was on furlough to 15 March 1863, for which he was paid for rations at camp in Virginia on 15 April 1863, with no later record with the 13th Georgia.

After the War

He was living in Atlanta after 1900 and by 1930 he was retired and living at #422 Candler Street in Atlanta [Zillow listing]. He died in 1939 at age 95 in the Confederate Soldiers' Home in Atlanta; he'd been a resident there for two years.
