Another Seventh

Here's another reference: Edward Boykin's The Falling Flag. Lt. Col. Boykin was with the Seventh S.C. Cavalry Regiment, which is the unit another great-great-great grandfather served in. John Wesley Young was present at the surrender at Appomattox, according to this website; I am looking for better documentation, but according to this list (taken from Brooks' The Appomattox Roster, not available on Google Books) Company I surrendered 41 men and five officers. Another website with dates and names, including references from other books, is here.

Edward M. Boykin, The Falling Flag: Evacuation of Richmond, Retreat and Surrender at Appomattox, 3rd ed. (New York: E. J. Hale & Sons, 1874)
