Note: The Second North Carolina Mounted Infantry was organized at Knoxville, Tennessee in October, 1863. The above service records show age at enlistment, which would have been between 1863 and 1865. The unit was composed of around 1000 men, most of which were from North Carolina, but many from Tennessee and other states. I just thought this information might be helpful to someone searching their Tennessee ancestor’s role in the Civil War; as most people would never think to look for a Tennessee man in a North Carolina Union army unit.
