Researcher seeking information for new NC regimental history on the 20th NC Infantry. I am currently researching and writing my third book which will be a regimental history with complete roster of the 20th NC Infantry. The regimentís companies were formed in Brunswick, Columbus, Cabarrus, Duplin, Sampson, and surrounding counties (including Robeson, Wayne, and Johnston). I would like to include photos, military, biographical and genealogical data (including parent's names, soldier's pre-war and post-war occupation(s), marriage info, and burial location) for every soldier. Also of particular interest are newspaper articles, and letters and diaries from the soldiers. I will pay copy/postage costs for any new information and give credit in the book's acknowledgments section. Please note that I already have the information from each soldierís CSR, Clark's NC Regiments and the NC Troops series. Thanks for your help.
