Capt. Williams Adams - Photo 2
Shot through the abdomen and killed on September 17, 1862, while "fighting nobly on the bloody Field of Sharpsburg," Maryland. Captain Adams is buried in Green Hill Cemetery, Greensboro, NC. "Young in years, high in hopes, illustrious in daring and chivalrous deeds, he fills a soldier's grave in the quiet of his native town -- mourned by all who knew him." Photos courtesy of E. Martin
