Re: 33rd AL, Co. E, Henderson H. Norman
Co. E, 33rd Alabama, was recruited from the area around Ramer in south Montgomery County. There's a monument to Co. E at the Ebeneezer Baptist Church on Hwy 61 south of Ramer. Henderson Norman's father was Job Norman, who allegedly was 7 feet tall, and weighed 400 lbs, according to descendants.. My great-great uncle, Charles R. Waller, was a 1st Lt. in Co. E, and was wounded in the shoulder at Perryville. KY. Charles was married to Henderson's sister, Emily. Emily died, and so did Henderson, around the end of the war. So, Charles married Henderson's widow. Anyway, Charles Waller succeeded Henderson as captain of Co. E, but his shouldder wound led to his resignation. Job Norman's home was located where Harrison School is now located on the south bypass in Montgomery. It was burned by Wilson's cavalry when they came to Montgomery after they left Selma.
