James H. Parker, Goldsboro Rifles-- Part 1

From the antietam.aotw.org. site.

There was a picture of James Parker and his wife Francis in the article from the February 28, 2013, Goldsboro (NC) News-Argus.  This is the one where I got so much information in my Confederate Legacy blog entries over this past month.

I came across some more information on the man.

JAMES H. PARKER, 27TH NORTH CAROLINA INFANTRY

James Parker enlisted in the Goldsboro Rifles from Goldsboro, NC.  The company later became Co. A of the 27th NC Infantry on 15 April 1861.

At Antietam, he was wounded in the arm in action September 17, 1862, called the Battle of Sharpsburg by the South.

Private Parker was killed at the Battle of Bristoe (Bristow) Station, Virginia on October 14, 1863.  He had also been at the Battle of Fredericksburg in Virginia.
