Civil War Monument inscription
Posted by: arthur heimbold (ID *****2575) Date: May 31, 2012 at 18:35:23

The 15th NJ Volunteer Infantry has an impressive monument at "The Bloody Angle" of the battle of Spotsylvania Court House, VA in remembrance of its participation in the battle of May 12, 1864. I am writing a narrative about my great granduncle, Herman Heimbold, who was in the 15th. He was killed in action on that day.

Part of the inscription on the monument reads... "to mark the portion of the confederate line held by the 14th Georgia Regiment...."

Several sources state that the 15th was not at "The Bloody Angle" and additionally that the 14th Georgia Regiment was not engaged in battle with the 15th New Jersey.

Any information to clarify this situation would be appreciated.
