Daniel S. McCallum - Private   
Daniel S. McCallum (original spelling of last name) and his brother William H. McCallum were brothers and my great-grand uncles. They were privates in the 40th NC State Troops (aka 3rd NC Artillery) which was formed from the 'Scotch Greys Artillery Battery' in December 1863. The company retained the name 'The Scotch Greys' due to the large number of its troops of Scottish descent. Serving with them in the company were two of their first cousins, Doddridge and Neill McCallum. Thus, there were four McCallums helping to keep the port of Wilmington open. The unit spent most of its time at Fort Fisher or the surrounding area and the majority of its members were captured when Fisher fell on 15 January 1865. However, my great-grand uncle Daniel was killed on that day. The remaining three McCallums went to Point Lookout as POWs. They were later paroled in the summer after taking the Oath of Allegiance to the US government.
