Confederate Legacy-- Part 10: Co. I, 35th NC Infantry

Still continuing with Confederate units containing large numbers of Goldsboro and Wayne County residents.

The company was organized in the fall of 1861 and had 90 men from Wayne County.  They received heavy casualties at the Battle of Malvern Hill in 1862, when Confederates attacked Union artillery at the top of the hill.  They lost most of the ten men who were killed during the course of the war at this site.

Only four men from Wayne County were still with the unit at the surrender at Appomattox.
