Edward Wooten - 1st Lieutenant   
Attended Epis. Seminary, Alexandia, Va., after war, later added extra 't' to name 'Wootten'; the son of Shadrack 'Shade' and Mary Elizabeth Wooten of Pitt Co., N.C. Book on N.C. CSA mothers says she had five sons in service. Rev. Wootten's 13-ring's bull's-eye canteen (see Museum website for photo, Jim Miller, donor) was on display in N.C. Museum, Raleigh, with brother-in-law, Pvt. May's uniform, musket, and smooth-sided canteen; both with three Confederate flags there-on (one unique on Wooten's). Curator originally thought canteen purchased perhaps at a CSA vets re-union and flags then painted on. I agreed flags could not last in-service, but I thought that was Wooten's in-service canteen as it had a tiny, pin-scratched like 'W' on neck. Pvt. May's collection included letter to his wife, Wooten's sister, thanking her for painting CSA flags, saying in-service Wooten had taken many a drink from it. When superintendent of Statesville, N.C., schools, Rev. Wootten said he donated his service sword to the circa 1920's militia/guard unit there for display. Rev. Wootten buried Oakdale Cemetery, Wilmington, N.C., in wife's Jewett-Bradley lot. He was in Trinity College, Conn., 'as war clouds gathered'. With Trinity Wilmington student Poison, they head South. After crossing Potomac River, at the Alexandria railroad station, Col. ? of the N.Y. Zouaves personally pulled the future Rev. Wooten of the last regularly scheduled passenger train South prior to the war, asking was Wooten going South to enlist? I suspect the future minister lied? His alumnus letters say he was only permitted to board as the train started rolling. The Col. was shot the next day or so, by an enraged Alexandria lady as the Col. pulled the 'rebel' flag from her house. The Wilmington (Wooten in photo) Wilmington CSA vets list Wooten as chaplain there and in the war, a Lt.; though official records show he enlisted at beginning of War to end as a Sgt. Compiler of NC Troops volumes said the local vets would know if he was a fraud Lt.; that at war's end, many legitimate brevet promotions were not recorded at headquarters and when the cavalry volume is republished, Sgt. Wooten's promotion to Lt. will be in it. In N.C. state archives, Raleigh, New Hanover County CSA vets/widows pension applications, there are several letters from Rev. Wootten and a Red Cross lady attempting to get a pension for a former slave who served with, if not in, the CSA army. I would hope this website, collectively in one roll, and below their respective units; would list the slaves/free blacks who served with, if not in, those units. I was reared under uniform segregation supplemented by too much random racism: Rev. Wootten's and the Red Cross lady's likely futile attempts for racial equity for faithful service with the CSA army makes me admire Rev. Wootten for more than his even faithful service in the war.

'As you do it to the least of them; you do it unto me.' Amen!
