I am a civil war collector and trader and also a writer. I am currently working on a book regarding the "Saltillo Boys". This is a company of voluteers in the Civil War from Iredell County, North Carolina. They were called the Saltillo Boys because some of their number had participated victoriously in the Battle of Bueno Vista during the Mexican War. Their actual designation was Co. C of the 4th Regiment of North Carolina Volunteers. All of Co. C was from Iredell County, N.C.

One of the people in the company was Elias P. Barringer. He was 18 years old when he enlisted and was mustered into Co. C on June 7, 1861 as a private. He died on 9/5/1861 at the Battle of Manassas in Virginia.

I am interested in additional information regarding Elias for use in my book. I am interested in any and all info that can be obtained - especially personal information. Please e-mail me directly at

The 4th Regiment completed its organization in May 1862 at Camp Hill, near Garysburg, NC. It was ordered to Virginia, where the unit served in General Featherston's, G.B. Anderson's, Ramseur's and Cox's Brigade. It was active at Williamsburg, Seven Pines, and the Seven Days' Battles, then shared in the campaigns of the army from South Mountain to Cold Harbor. Later the 4th was involved in Early's Shenandoah Valley operations and the Appomattox Campaign. It lost 77 killed, 241 wounded, and 6 missing of the 678 engaged at Seven Pines, sustained 58 casualties during the Maryland Campaign and had 45 killed and 110 wounded at Chancellorsville. At Gettysburg, the unit lost thirty-one percent of the 196 engaged and 18 were disabled at Bristoe. The records show 8 officers and 101 men present on April 9, 1865. Its field officers were Colonels George B. Anderson, Bryan Grimes, Edwin A. Osborne, and James H. Wood; Lieutenant Colonels David M. Carter and John A. Young; and Majors Edward S. Marsh and Absalom K. Simonton.
