Benjamin Franklin Moore - Private   
Benjamin was born 19 Aug 1847 in Union Co. NC. and died 11 June 1918 at New Salem, Union Co. NC. He was 12 years old in 1860 and living at Olive Branch, Union Co. NC. The 2nd Regiment was formed Dec 1864 by consolidating the just formed 2nd & 5th Junior Reserve Battalions. The men were aged 15 to 18 years old. Benjamin would have been about 16 years old. They were mainly used as support troops guarding bridges and as prison guards. When one turned 18 he was suppose to be transferred to a front line combat Regiment. It served in the Dept. of North Carolina and Southern Virginia & briefly was assigned to L. S. Bakers Regiment in the Army of Tennessee. They saw action in the New Bern area and Bentonville, NC. The Regiment was included in the surrender on 26 April 1865. This unit was also know as the 71st Regiment NC Infantry. The Company Rosters for a few Companies have survived but most did not. Benjamin is found in my Ancestry Tree and we connect thru a very distant marriage.
