Wesley Levi Bumgarner - Private   
PVT. Wesley L Bumgarner ,
Enlistment Date: 07 September 1862
Distinguished Service: DISTINGUISHED SERVICE
State Served: North Carolina
Unit Numbers: 129 129
Service Record: Enlisted as a Private on 07 September 1862
Enlisted in Company H, 18th Infantry Regiment North Carolina on 07 September 1862.
POW on 12 May 1864 at Spotsylvania Court House, VA.
Confined on 14 May 1864 at Point Lookout, MD (Estimated day)
Died Company H, 18th Infantry Regiment North Carolina on 15 August 1864..........

Wesley`s brother Pvt. Simeon Nelson Bumgarner had enlisted in the 52nd NC company F back in March of 62 and had written a letter to his father in Apr. 62 telling him not to let his younger brother Wesley enlist unless he had to because it was near hell in camp mangum, with a lot of the men dying from mumps and measles.
So Wes was one of the reluctant ones to serve the Confederacy, He stayed home until early September ,when the Conscript detail came to Wilkes county and started rounding up the ones who hadn`t volunteered to go before....
Wes was assigned to Co. H. 18th Nc. and soon was on the front lines in Virginia when he decided to go home again, which he did in August of 63....In October of 63 he wrote a letter home saying they had caught him and were sending him back to Richmond..
He spoke of being treated like a yankee and spending time in the guardhouse in Salisbury and as he said, 'almost every guardhouse in Virginia', before he arrived at 'Castle Thunder'.
His letter of October 26 1863 informed his father that he was once again with his Regiment and the only punishment he got was a long ride on the 'Old Bull' and a few weeks in Castle Thunder.
Wesley was captured on May 8 1864 at Spotsylvania Courthouse,during the battle of the Wilderness..along with his friend and cousin James Bullis and sent to Point lookout Maryland..James survived this ordeal and informed his family of Wesley`s demise and the causes of it..

wesley`s name is engraved on the Monument at Point Lookout maryland...

The official reason for death was Chronic Diarrhea,but james Bullis,who was there with him said he was starved to death...Wesley was buried in a mass grave near the prison camp in an area noted only as 1004 B,how many men were buried there is unknown,because the union prison Guards were notorious liars...They wanted to hide the exact numbers of deaths that occured in the Northern prison camps Most of which came from intentional starving.
