Re: Hamon Bailey Ware, Co C, 19th Ala. Vol.
What document do you have that says he mentioned 1863 as his enlistment date? I havent got anything beyond his pension application which was made 1914. The family has always maintained that he was 15 years old when he joined. This is consistent with the MArch 10th date of 1862 that he put on his pension application.
Of course, he may not have remembered correctly - on either occaision! In any case, every tidbit I can find - anywhere - is another clue. Thanks again
