Words fail me. Your 25th Alabama home page is exactly what the web should be used for! On behalf of my maternal great, great, great grandfather, Private John R. Taylor, Company F, 25th Regiment Alabama Volunteers, I thank you. Private Taylor gave all on June 27, 1863 when he died of disease in Atlanta Medical College Hospital. He left behind a wife (Louisa) and 7 children in Randolph County near Wedowee after only 6 months in the army. Please add his name to your roster of Company F. References available for Private John (R.) Taylor, Co. F, 25th Ala. Infantry:

Also, there was a Private Calvin J. C. Munroe who served in Company G. I have a photograph of him in uniform that I got from a descendant in Texas. Can you display scanned photos on your page? If so, I will call that fellow in Texas and ask his permission to display Private Munroe's photo on the web. Let me know if you want me to pursue this. Thanks again for your efforts.

Hi!- really enjoyed these pages - WELL DONE! one small correction, George Doherty Johnston (note the "t") was my gr-great half-uncle and his name was NOT Johnson (although a frequently-made error!) - perhaps you'd like to put an "error correction" note the correct spelling!? Unfortunately, my great-grandfather (Lt. Henry Yarbrough Weissinger), who served as his half-brother's adjutant, is not listed, but such is life!? (FYI - both these men were from Perry Co. AL)
I note you used the AL Dept. of Archives as your source - do you know if they have other regiments from AL, ESP the rooster of the 28th AL? as well as the 25th? - I've just gotten a new scanner and am anxious to try it out with something useful, but have had trouble tracking down the full complement of soldiers, Private to General - most of the generally published sources confine themselves to officiers! (hmph!) in any case, enjoyed your page - thanks for posting!
