    Pvt George Suber, Co K, 9th Ga Infantry wounded and captured at Battle of Gettysburg

    On July 1st, 2nd & 3rd, 1863 the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia, led by Gen Robert E Lee, battled the Federal Army of the Potomac at a little known town in southern Pennsylvania called Gettysburg. Georgia provided over 13,000 troops to the battle and over 2,700 became casualties.

    News quickly spread back home that a major battle had been fought in the North and families across the nation waited to learn the fate of their husbands, fathers and sons. Days later a casualty list from the battle of Gettysburg would arrive bringing the sad news of the Sumter County men who were killed, wounded and missing.
