Archibald B. Ellis was my GG Grandfather. He served with the famed Kershaw's Brigade during the Civil War and saw action in practically every major engagement including Antietam Sharpsburg) and Gettysburg and many others. He was wounded twice and was captured in the fall of 1864 while serving in the Shennandoah Valley under Jubal Early after being detached from Lee.

Here is an entry personally written by A.B. Ellis in the United Daughters of the Confederacy (UDC) Book of Recollections … Vol. 7, pg 41

A.B. ELLIS ... “I was born February, 1842 near Hodges and was living in Old Abbeville District when the war started. I offered my services, enlisting n Company F, Second S.C.V. under Captain Perryman on April 17, 1861. It wasn't very long before I was chosen as one of the musicians of my Company. I hate to recall the awful struggle but when honor was at stake we could not let the Yankees go buy unnoticed. I am eighty-four years old, living with my son in Greenwood. At another time I will give you an account of some of the battles. ...”

It was sad to see that he was so brief in describing an experience that from his service record, would seem to be much more varied and interesting than this short paragraph.
