PHILLIPS, THOMAS B., Private, Co. A
Resided in Wayne County and enlisted at Fort Macon at age 22, August 12, 1861. Present or accounted for until captured at or near Sharpsburg, Maryland, on or about September 17, 1862. Requested that he not be exchanged and was apparently released on his promise not to rejoin the Confederate Army. [North Carolina pension records indicate he was wounded at New Bern on March 17, 1862; was wounded in the left arm and shoulder at "Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, May 31, 1862"; and was discharged after the battle of Gettysburg, July 1-3, 1863.]
