I have in this database
endeavored to give a complete roll of all the
members who belonged to Kershaw's Brigade.
I have taken it just as it stands in the
office of the State Historian in Columbia. The
work of completing the rolls of the
Confederate soldiers from this State was first
commenced by the late General, H.L. Farley and
finished by Colonel John P. Thomas, to whose
courtesy I am indebted for the use of his
office and archives while completing these
rolls. There may be some inaccuracies in the
spelling of names or in the names themselves,
but this could not be avoided after the lapse
of so many years. Then, again, the copy sent
to the State Historian was often illegible,
causing the same names to appear different and
different names to look the same. But I have
followed the records in the office in
Columbia, and am not responsible for any
mistakes, omissions, or inaccuracies.
In the list of officers there will appear some seeming irregularities and inaccuracies, but this is accounted for by the fact that the duplicate rolls were those taken from the companies' muster rolls when first enlisted in the Confederate service, and little or no record kept of promotions. Thus we will see Captains and Lieutenants in these rolls marked as non-commissioned officers. This was occasioned by those officers being promoted during the continuance of the war, and no record kept of such promotions.
