List of Confederate Soldiers From Jackson County

This list of Confederate soldiers is taken from an old diary which has
been in the possession of the Haynes family for many years. No one knew
whose diary it was. It was kept on the Peach Grove Plantation. No one
now living knows the location of this plantation.

There were many other men who served in the cause of the grand Old
South, but the records are dim. It is fitting to preserve the above
names so that they may be handed down to posterity with all the glory
and honor that may be due them. Jackson County furnished her full quota
of soldiers during the Civil War.

The old men, women and children of Jackson County who remained at home
had to suffer and go through as much hardships as the soldiers did the
foremost of the fray. They suffered from hunger, from the want of
medical care, and from lack of clothes. The women and children were
heroines and heroes in this great struggle. They had to labor until
they were exhausted in order to feed themselves and the army.

The greatest hardships occurred after the war. Many of the Jackson
County citizens were wealthy before the war. Their wealth vanished
almost overnight because their homes were ruined, their slaves were set
free, their livestock was gone and their land in most cases was
confiscated or sold for taxes. Many hundreds of the Jackson County
citizens were made paupers after the War Between the States.
