List of Deaths of CS Army Personnel at Cassville, Georgia, Hospitals.

as listed in the Atlanta "Southern Confederacy."

transcribed, and compiled by Terry Foenander.




The following list of names, originally arranged by state, but re-arranged alphabetically by this author, was extracted from the Atlanta newspaper, the Southern Confederacy, dated March 25, 1864, and was preceded by the following notation:

"Below is appended a list of all deaths occurring among the soldiers at this post in the Newsom, Frank Ramsay, University and Flewellan Hospitals, from the 12th of October, 1863, to March 16th, 1864. By giving this list publicity some bereaved family may possibly receive the first tidings that a loved member of the home circle has gone to his last sleep, and to them is given the consolation that nothing was left undone by experienced and humane and attentive physicians to arrest the destroyer."

Each name is followed by the soldiers unit, and then the date of death. All the deaths shown occurred in the five or six month period prior to the publication of the list of names, and is not a complete listing of all deaths at the Cassville hospitals throughout the war. Additional data has been extracted from the sources shown at the end of the list. The newspaper listing did not specify cause of death, or which particular hospital each soldier died at. Unfortunately the Southern Confederacy did make some errors in publication. The major error spotted by this author was of a dozen names which were included under the listings for Florida, but which should have been listed under those soldiers from Georgia. I have corrected these listings by including the actual state in brackets. Undoubtedly there are other errors included in the publication of the list in the newspaper, and these will be corrected where possible.
