Joel H Scates Confederate Service Record

Joel H Scates Confederate Service Record

Joel enlisted in Company I, 53rd Virginia Infantry sometime in 1862, at age 17. He served until a few weeks before the end of the war, being captured at Five Forks. In this battle the Confederates ran out of ammunition, ending up in hand to hand combat, using their rifles as clubs. Joel was captured and sent to Point Lookout, where he died of measles 3 weeks later, 15 days after Lee's surrender at Appomattox, 12 days after the disbandment and parole of the Army of Northern Virginia.
