Confederate (CSV)


Edward McIver

(1838 - 1862)

Home State: North Carolina

Branch of Service: Infantry

Unit: 30th North Carolina Infantry

Before Sharpsburg

From Moore County, he enlisted on 24 April 1862 in Company H, 30th North Carolina Infantry.

On the Campaign

He was with his Company at Sharpsburg.

The rest of the War

He died in Front Royal, VA on 13 December 1862 ...

... he offered himself a willing sacrifice to his country's call; and in a few short weeks he was engaged with the enemy in the hard fought battles around Richmond and in quick secession the battles of Manassas and Sharpsburg, in all of which he made himself useful in driving back the foe. In all the varied duties assigned him in camp or upon the battle field he rendered a cheerful obedience, and was not found faltering or wanting at his post. But, alas, he is not more. Another gallant soldier has fallen from our ranks and his company mourns the loss of one of its bravest men. His illness was short. He was ministered by a skillful N.C. physician, and had the attentions of a particular friend and near neighbor, who staid by him till his days were numbered, and followed him to a cedar tree in Academy Square, that marks his last resting place.
