    Henry P Moore Confederate Service Record (19)
    Henry lived and worked in Danville at his family's livery business as a stabler. He enlisted in the "Danville Grays" as a Private on 23 April 1861, at the age of 25. The company was designated as Company B, 18th Virginia Infantry Regiment. He was shot in the left thigh in Pickett's Charge at Gettysburg on July 03 1863, and hospitalized in Danville. He was wounded again at Cold Harbor June 01 1864. He deserted to the enemy on the night of November 9 1864 at the siege of Petersburg, and was sent to City Point, Maryland, where he took the Oath of Allegience on November 27 1864.

  • Notes 
    • One researcher indicates Henry attained the rank of Major in the Confederate Army. There is no documentary evidence of this. To the contrary, he deserted at the siege of Petersburg Virginia about 9 Nov 1864, and took the oath of allegiance to the Union about 27 Nov 1864. The pertinent records indicate he was a Private in the 18th Virginia Infantry. History tells us desertion was common during this extended siege due to constant shelling and lack of adequate Confederate supplies. This may also explain why he didn't return to the family, and appears to have been estranged from it, despite serving honorably through most of the war.
