Charles Samuel Parks - Corporal   
When Charles Samuel PARKS was born on June 3, 1842, in Virginia, his father, Samuel Goode, was 38 and his mother, Amanda Theresa, was 22. He was the third child of five brothers and two sisters. His older brother however died at the age of one year, before Charles was born. His father was not a farmer, but engaged in 'commerce'. In 1850, his father is listed as being a teacher. He was born into a slave holding family. In 1840 his father owned four slaves, a woman aged 24-36, a woman aged10-24, and one boy and one girl under ten years old. In 1860 his father owned six slaves, one woman age 29, a man age 18, and four children aged 15, 7, 5, and 3.

Charles Samuel Parks must have traveled from his home in Botetourt County, Virginia to enlist in the Confederate army at age 19 on July 24, 1861 in Manassas with Company K, 11th Virginia Infantry Regiment, (which was raised in his hometown of Lynchburg in May of that year) shortly after the first Battle of Manassas/Bull Run on July 21, a decisive Confederate victory and the first major land battle of the war. He may have wanted to join quickly, before the war was over. He was promoted from the ranks to Corporal on October 7, 1861, and sent to the hospital on October 20. He was hospitalized October 26 with measles, and furloughed until November 30. After returning, over the next 18 months his regiment fought at Drainsville, Williamsburg, Seven PInes, Fraysers Farm, Second Manassas/Bull Run, Boonsborough, Sharpesville/Antitem, Fredricksburg, and Gettysburg.

July 2. Arrived about sunset and bivouacked on the western border of Spangler’s Woods.

July 3. In the forenoon formed line in the field east of the woods with right flank near Spangler’s Barn. At the close of the cannonade advanced and took part in Longstreet’s assault upon the Union position in the vicinity of the Angle. Exposed to a severe fire of artillery and vigorously assailed beyond the Emmitsburg Road by infantry on the right flank with ranks thinned and much disorganized by its losses especially of officers it pressed on against the Union line at the stone wall where after a fierce encounter the struggle ended. Gen. J. L. Kemper fell wounded in front of the stone wall.

July 4. Spent the day in reorganization and during the night began the march to Hagerstown.

In November, in his company muster roll his is listed as captured on July 3rd at Gettysburg, one month after his 21st birthday.

He does not appear in any lists of POWs, and continues to be listed on his Company Muster Roll as captured by the enemy until the end of the war. If captured at Gettysburg, he may have ended as most of the Gettysburg Confederate POWs did at Fort Delaware, where he likely died in the hellish conditions of Civil War prisoner of war facilities of infectious disease weakened by cold and malnutrition. He certainly could have been one of the many soldiers whose identities and deaths at Gettysburg were not noted and whose bodies were hastily buried decomposing in the July sun in field graves near where they died. In any event his death has been unmarked and unrecorded, his body not recovered or identified, and his name appears on no plaques honoring the Confederate dead.

He was my mother's grandmother's uncle.
