Confederate Legacy-- Part 7: Saulston Volunteers

Company K of the 27th North Carolina Infantry. 

Berry Parks then became captain and continued in that position until near the end of the war.

Many of the names of the company's members are still living in this part of Wayne County:  Barnes, Best, Chase, Edmundson, Hooks, Howell, Lancaster, Musgrave, Pate and Smith.

During the war, 135 men served in the unit.  Nine were killed or mortally wounded, 21 died of other causes and 30 were wounded.  Six were present at the Appomattox surrender.
