Mr. Bergeron, I suspected such would be the case. All I can find in his service record was that he was "wounded severely". The cards giving the location of the wounding have me a little confused and I am still trying to figure that much out. Perhaps a better understanding of the battle itself would help me so I am trying to learn more of that also. That info is off the muster roll cards. He was often detailed on extra duty as a blacksmith and teamster. I take great pride in his selection but feel I will have to wait for the next life, so to speak, before I will ever find out why he was selected.
I would like to add what a priviledge it is to have you on this board. The librarians at LSUA are super nice people but have little to no experience with Confederate service records. I knew you would more than likely respond to this post and I appreciate your kindness and efforts. It takes great patience to deal with people like myself who are less than accomplished researchers and you demonstrate that patience daily on this board. I think I speak for all when I say a sincere thank you!
