    Link to Google MapsMilitary Service - CSA: Company I, 50th Georgia Infantry Enlisted at the age of 17 at Nashville, Berrien County GA for 3 years or duration of war. Records reflect that he died near Ft Brown, GA which would have been before the unit's first battle at Second Bull Run fought in late August, 1862. (John Griffin, Harmon's first cousin four times removed, writes that Harmon was born on 24 May 1846 in Lowdnes County, GA and that he died in service to the CSA of disease on 13 June 1862. Ref: National Archives Microfilm Box, Roll, and Record: 000226, 0022, 00003411 Wiki: The 50th Georgia Volunteer Infantry was an infantry regiment raised by the state of Georgia to fight for the Confederacy in the American Civil War. The regiment was organized on March 4, 1862, at Savannah, primarily from recruits from southern Georgia. The original commander was Col. William R. Manning (1817?1871). They were drilled at Camp Davis, just outside of Guyton, Georgia. Upon being mustered into Confederate service, the regiment served in the Savannah defenses. On July 17, 1862, Major General John C. Pemberton sent the 50th Georgia Volunteers to Richmond to join the Army of Northern Virginia under its commanding general, Robert E. Lee. For the majority of the war, the 50th Georgia served with the First Corps of the Army of Northern Virginia. The regiment participated in more than 45 engagements during the war. Some of the early battles in the East that the regiment took part in included South Mountain, Sharpsburg, Chancellorsville, and Gettysburg. The regiment went south when James Longstreet took his corps to Georgia and Tennessee in the fall of 1863, where it was engaged at the Siege of Knoxville. Returning to Virginia, the 50th Georgia fought in the Siege of Petersburg, the Battle of Cedar Creek, and the Battle of Sayler's Creek. The remaining men surrendered at Appomattox Court House on April 9, 1865. After parole, they returned to Georgia and civilian life, holding several reunions over the years. - 2 MAY 1862 - Nashville, Berrien, Georgia, USA Link to Google Earth
