Company H
Daniel Patterson - Captain   
Captain Patterson was my great-grandfather. He was company commander of Co. H, 2nd N.C. Regt. (Artillery) which was incorporated into the 36th N.C. Regiment. He raised the company of men from Bladen, Robeson, Cumberland, Columbus, and nearby counties in 1862. Company H, the 'Clarendon Guards,' was initially stationed at Fort St. Phillip (now called Fort Anderson) at the site of old Brunswicktown on the Cape Fear River. By July, 1864, the company had been transferred to Fort Fisher, NC. Company H was stationed at the intersection of the land face and sea face of the fort. They engaged ships of the Union blockade fleet, and assisted blockade runners to successfully come into the Cape Fear River through the New Inlet. When Union General Benjamin Butler led an expedition to attack Fort Fisher in December, 1864, Company H was heavily engaged in the action on Christmas Day, which resulted in the withdrawal of the Union forces. Captain Patterson's post-action report cited two of his soldiers for bravery. He reported numerous artillery rounds expended, and stated 'We engaged the enemy on land and sea. None of the enemy captured, I hope some killed.'
In January, 1865, another Union expedition arrived to attack Fort Fisher, with Admiral David Porter commanding the fleet, and General Alfred Terry commanding the Union troops. The troops were landed up the peninsula from the fort, and moved into the maritime forest north of the fort's land face. The night of 14 January, Fort Fisher's commanding officer, Col. William Lamb, selected Captain Patterson's company to sally out of the Fort and reconnoiter the Union positions. The next day, 15 January 1865, the fort was subjected to a brutal artillery bombardment by the guns of the Union Navy. Then the Navy sent sailors and marines to attack the sea face of the fort, directly in front of Company H. The gunners of the Clarendon Guards, using both artillery and rifles, and augmented by the N.C. Junior Reserves, devastated the ranks of sailors and marines on the beach before them. Had that been the extent of the attack, Fort Fisher would have been secure. However, at about 5pm, the Union Army attacked the land face of the fort, alongside the Cape Fear River. Brutal hand-to-hand fighting ensued, and Colonel Lamb and General W.H.B. Whiting, (who had come to the fort a few days before, stating, 'Lamb, my boy, you and your garrison are to be sacrificed. I have come to share your fate.') each led counterattacks, both of which stalled as each of these gentlemen, respectively, was wounded. The advancing Union troops cut across the parade field, bypassing the section of the traverses that were manned by Company H. Ultimately, the main body of the garrison was pushed back to Battery Buchanan, where they surrendered about 9 o'clock p.m. But that was not the end of the story for Company H. Captain Patterson was long-reputed as being the last company commander to surrender at Fort Fisher. His obituary in the Presbyterian Standard in 1904 reports this. More recently, I found, in a nodescript book in an old trunk of his, a diary that he started that night. 'Fort Fisher, NC, January 15, 1865- Captured about 11 o'clock p.m.'
Company H was apparently cut off from the rest of the fort's garrison as Union troops cut diagonally across the fort from the river-side traverses to the headquarters. Only later, as General Adelbert Ames had his New Hampshire troops sweep the remaining landface traverses, did Union forces enter that part of the fort defended by Company H. Even then, however, there was a delay of several hours between that foray by Ames' troops and the capture of Company H. The Clarendon Guards were men who were largely farmers and outdoorsmen, who were self-reliant and skilled at woodsmanship. My impression is that they attempted to exfiltrate from their position in the fort, either down the peninsula to try to join the rest of the garrison, or more likely, to move up the peninsula and try to slip past Union lines and join the Confederate forces under General Robert Hoke who were nearby at Sugar Loaf (near current Carolina Beach). They were captured, and were shipped north aboard USS California. The initial destination was Point Lookout, Maryland, but the Delaware River was frozen, so they proceeded up to New York. Captain Patterson, along with General Whiting and the other officer POWs, was imprisoned on Governor's Island in New York harbor, where General Whiting and Major Sullivan died. Food was scarce, but Captain Patterson was a Mason, and was able to procure additional food by exchanging masonic signs with one of the guards, who was also a Mason. After a little over a month, Captain Patterson was put on a ship and taken to Virginia, where on March 5, 1865, he was exchanged at Bouleware's Wharf in the last great prisoner exchange of the war. From there, he was taken to Richmond, and went by train to Danville, Lynchburg, Greensboro, Raleigh, Goldsboro, and ultimately, Clinton, where he then walked home to Bladen County, 'dodging yanks,' since Sherman's army was then moving through North Carolina. He returned to farming and his prior duties as a justice of the peace and deputy sheriff, and died in January, 1904. His photograph is in several books published by Professor Chris Fonvielle of the University of North Carolina at Wilmington.
