McRae's Battalion NC Cavalry      
Company Unknown
Lemuel Trader Dermid - Other   

Lemuel Trader Dermid was in the 6th NC Cavalry/65th State troops. His Company I think was C, but I am unsure. He was a forager and teamster. He would scout for food for the army. He did no fighting, but was attacked after the war on the way home from Appomattox by some of Sherman' men. He had nothing to ride but a mule. The Union soldiers shot him in the leg as he took off across a field and another shot broke the saddle and he fell on the ground. A negro Cavalry trooper leveled his gun at him and the Union officer told him to shoot the rebel. The Negro refused and rode off leaving him for dead. He was found by other soldiers in his regiment and spent 3 months in the hospital recovering. He lived to a ripe old age of 105.
