Sheriff Brewer’s Old Civil War Wound Acting Up, 1883, NC

May 10, 1883 (The Commonwealth, a newspaper of Scotland Neck, NC, 2d page)
[From the exchanges]

Chatham Record: We regret to see sheriff Brewer limping about and suffering from his old wound, that has recently begun to give him much pain. This wound was received at Gettysburg, in which battle his company (which was “co. E” 26th N.C. regt., had 80 men killed and wounded out of 82 that went into the fight! We doubt if any other company in any battle of the war suffered so heavily.
