At the battle of Berryville, Sept. 3. 1864, Jake was reported killed.

The next entry reports: '09 08 1864, Jacob [?] Rosenbaum, Co. C, Pvt. - Pvt., “Jake,” buried at Confederate Burial Ground in Cemetery, Winchester in grave”#1300 September 8, 1864 at Winchester, Va.”

Jakes' grave at Winchester is clearly marked in the Mississippi section the Stonewall Cemetery within the Mount Hebron Cemetery, 305 E. Boscawen St. Winchester, VA 22601 The cemetery's records do not have Jake's first name, Jabob, so his headstone merely says 'Rosenbaum'. Jake's grave marker is clearly marked as #38 in the Mississippi section of the cemetery.

Jacob Rosenbaum was born in Alabama, the son of Caroline and Marx. He had seven brothers and one sister. Descendants of Jacob's siblings still survive and thrive in east central Mississippi to this day (2017)

I am not related to Jacob Rosenbaum. Jake was 1 of 5 Jews known to served in the 13th Regiment and I wanted that story to be told here.

This looks interesting. If anyone has information about James Pinckney Breazeale, confederate veteran, I would love to hear from you. He was my great-grandfather, and would most likely have fought with a Louisiana unit. He came from Neshoba County, Mississippi, moving to Louisiana a year or so before the war. After the war, he settled in Attala County, Mississippi, where he lived until his death in 1910. I can not procure a record for him, but the Daughters of the Confederacy always place a flag on his grave every year. No one knows his unit, but it is believed he was in a cavalry unit.
