Im looking for details about my family. My GGrandfather enlisted and was sent originally to Talladega where he was assigned to Co D 1st AL Arty. Unit served at Mobile and I dont have much more than a brief detail of the unit history for his service. Any Info would help. I may also have other relatives in the unit named John, John Jackson and Thomas J Coker. I am directly related to John Jackson. Roster has a John, which is probably an uncle and a Jackson who I believe is John Jackson and possibly another relative named Thomas.

James A McCluskey - Private   
Official Confederate documents show that James A McCluskey enlisted March 6, 1861 in Auburn and was sent to Fort Morgan, which guarded Mobile Bay. On Aug 23, 1864, the Union Navy commanded by Admiral David Farragut attacked and captured Fort Morgan. James and other prisoners were apparently sent on a Union vessel to New Orleans and then to the infamous Union prison in Elmira NY where he remained until exchanged on Feb. 20, 1865. Elmier was by far the worst Union prison. Over 25% of the Confederate prisoners died there. There is evidence that his younger brother, William Franklin McCluskey, only 17 at the time, was also at Fort Morgan in the same unit and suffered the same fate. William (b. May 3, 1847) enlisted Dec. 29, 1863. He was released from Elmira on June 19, 1865. James is my distant cousin.
