|Baxter Jordan, Sergeant, Company C, Alabama 24th Infantry, CSA|
From Pickens, Alabama, Baxter Jordan enlisted in the "Dixie Boys" at Navy Cove near Ft. Morgan as company 4th Corporal. Archive records are lacking, but Jordan apparently ended the war as a sergeant, later moving to Whiteville, Arkansas, and living until at least 1890.* The 24th Alabama served in the Mobile fortifications and later marched with the Army of Tennessee from Murfreesboro to Atlanta. The regiment was decimated at Franklin, the survivors fighting at Bentonville and surrendering with Joe Johnson in April 1865.
