22nd Alabama: 1900 Louisville Reunion

Nicholas T. Leverett indicated on his 1913 pension application (Texas Form A) that he was transferred from the 39th (sic) Georgia to the 22nd Alabama in 1863. [He was never with the 39th; he mustered with the 37th.] He probably used two documents to support the assertion he was with the 22nd:

1) A receipt made out to him and originating with Company F, 22nd Regiment Alabama Infantry. It reflected a a remark “for clothing” dated 08 Oct 8 1863, indicating a possible deduction from his gross pay. [That is an odd document since he was wounded less on 21 September while assigned to the 37th Georgia.]

2) A Ramsey hospital discharge dated 09 August 1864 granted him a 60-day furlough. The furlough indicated assignment to the 22nd Alabama. [Most of the soldiers on a corresponding hospital roster were assigned to the 22nd Alabama. All were afforded 60-day furloughs irrespective of wound or illness.]

No document (muster or end-of-war parole) has been located that would validate his claim to having been transferred to the 22nd Alabama. The 37th Georgia records indicate that he failed to be listed on rolls after his slight wounding in September 1863.
