  • Notes 
    • Harrison H. Eller was a Pvt., Co. K, 53rd NC Inf. He Enlisted November 3, 1862 at age 21 years. He was reported A.W.O.L. for six months in 1863. He was court-martialed, but the penalty not given. He was reported ill in a hospital in Richmond, Va., from May 19, 1864, and was captured by the enemy near Petersburg, Virginia, November 25, 1864.

      Harrison would have served under CPT Jesse Franklin Eller, a cousin, who helped organize Co.K. Jesse Franklin was a Lieutenant but promoted to Captain after his commanding officer was killed at Gettysburg. Another cousin, David H. Eller, was a Sergeant of Company K.

      The 53rd NC Infantry had the highest number of Eller soldiers of any similar unit, either Confederate or Union. The 53rd was mustered in the latter part of the winter and first part of the spring of 1862, and was organized at Camp Mangun, near Raleigh, the first week in May, 1962. It was made up of men from nearly a dozen different counties, but the nine Ellers all cane from Wilkes county. As a regiment in The Army of Northern Virginia, under the command of General Robert E. Lee, it had participated in many of the important battles of that army. [1]
