Archibald Roach - Private   
Archibald Roach 'enlisted' in the Confederate Army on 2 Sept 1863 at Camp Holmes. The Muster Role shows a 3-year enlistment as documented by a Major Mallot. He volunteered because a Confederate detachment came to his farm to recruit soldiers. The detached troops were trying to get my GF Franklin Roach at age 11 to go with them, using force if necessary; so Archa at age 36 answered the call to protect the homeland and had to say goodbye to his wife Ruth, three young sons, including Franklin, and a 4 month old daughter. Private Archibald Roach died in about 4 months of service on 24 Jan 1864 after a brief 6 day stay in the Hospital. No cause of death was given. After significant battles, deceased soldiers were usually loaded on railroad cars like cord wood to be buried in Gordonsville about 20 miles south of Orange CH. Archa's luck was still not with him as he was buried in an unmarked grave out back of the Hospital by a colored janitor using a shallow scoop drawn by a mule,and with no doubt, very little respect. Thanks to the UDC (United Daughter of the Confederacy) he may possibly have been reunited with other Unknown Confederates now buried in a local cemetery. A suppose Ruth never knew what happened to Archibald. God Bless him. He gave all for Family and not for slavery as we have been told as history is rewritten.
