Note: The following information comes from John Rutledge.

James enlisted as a private in Company C, 57th Regiment Georgia Infantry May 8, 1862. He died on May 16, 1863 from wounds received at the Battle of Baker's Creek, Mississippi on May 16, 1863. He served for the Confederate States of America. He was enlisted in Savannah, Ga. by Col. H. Cleveland for a period of three years or the duration of the war. He was paid his $50.00 bounty on July 15, 1862.

Source: Confederate Archives, Chapter 10, File No 4, Page 27: Shows place of birth as Washington, Georgia. Also the following: The 57the Regiment Georgia Infantry was originally known as the 2nd Regiment, Georgia State Troops (Col. Barkuloo). It was mustered into the service of the Confederate States in May, 1862, as Colonel Barkuloo's Regiment and subsequently became the 54th Regiment Georgia Infantry. Early in 1863 this designation was changed to 57the Regiment Georgia Infantry.
