I am looking for ANY information on Mr. A. Wilson, formerly of Dunedin, New Zealand, who was a New Zealand American Civil War veteran. Mr. Wilson was mustered into the service of the Confederate Army in the early days of the war, into Company “A” of the Texas Regiment, “Well’s Regiment Texas Cavalry”, forming a part of Hood’s Division of Longstreet’s corps. He participated in the seven days of fighting around Richmond, Virginia in 1862, being severely wounded in his face that same year in the Battle of Bull’s Run; producing a scar that remained with him throughout his life. Any information you can provide to honor Mr. Wilson's life will be greatly appreciated.,
