My maternal ancestors, the Trucks family, lived in Bibb County, Alabama at the time of the Civil War. Three sons enlisted in the Confederate Army in March, 1862. None of them returned home. All three were killed in battle within 16 months. They were members of Co. F of the 44th Alabama Infantry.
Jackson Trucks killed at Sharpsburg on Sept. 17, 1862.
Marion Trucks mortally wounded at Sharpsburg on Sept. 17 died 11 days later in Winchester, VA.
David Trucks was mortally wounded at Gettysburg on July 2, 1863 died July 8,1863.
One tragic thing about the Civil War was that family members often served in the same military units formed in their communities. As a result of this, sometimes towns lost their entire population of young men. Many were buried on the battlefields in unmarked graves. They are gone, but not forgotten.
