  2. Colonel William C. Oates ( My Great Great GrandFather ) Was wounded at Brown's Ferry. His Brother Captain John A. Oates died from wounds recieved at Gettysburg. Fifteenth Alabama Infantry Regiment -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- This regiment organized at Fort Mitchell in the summer of 1861, and moved at once into Virginia. Joining the main army near Manassas, it was brigaded with the 21st Georgia, 21st N. Carolina, and 16th Mississippi, under Gen. G.B. Crittenden of Kentucky; Gen I.R. Trimble succeeding Crittenden in December. When the army moved over to Yorktown, the Fifteenth remained on the Shenandoah, in Gen. T.J. Jackson's division. It was engaged with slight loss at Front Royal and Winchester, but lost 9 killed and 33 wounded, out of 425, at Cross Keys. Moving over to Richmond, in Jackson's flank movement on McClellan, it entered the first battle of Cold Harbor with 412 men, and lost 34 killed and 110 wounded. Five days after, it suffered lightly at Malvern Hill. On the march in Maryland, it was engaged at Hazel River and Manassas Junction with a loss of 6 killed and 22 wounded. A day or two later the Fifteenth participated in the second and greater battle of Manassas, losing 21 killed and 91 wounded out of 440 men engaged. At Chantilly the regiment lost 4 killed and 14 wounded, and took part in the investment of Harper's Ferry, with trivial loss. At Sharpsburg, of 300 engaged, 9 were killed and 75 wounded. Under fire at Fredericksburg, the casualties were one killed and 34 wounded. The Fifteenth was then placed in a brigade uner Gen. Law (with the Fourth, Forty-fourth, Forty-seventh, and Forty-eighth Alabama regiments), Longstreet's corps. At Suffolk it lost 4 killed and 18 wounded. It took part in the grand assault of Hood's division on Gettysburg, and within a few minutes lost 72 killed, 190 wounded, and 81 missing, out of 644 men engaged. The Fifteenth suffered lightly at Battle Mountain, and, transferred to the West, bore its colors proudly at Chicamauga, where it lost 19 killed and 123 wounded, out of 425 engaged. In the fierce fights at Brown's Ferry and Lookout Valley, the regiment lost 15 killed and 40 wounded. Six killed and 21 wounded at Knoxville, and light loss at Bean's Station, closed the operations of the regiment in Tennessee. It took 450 men in at the Wilderness and Spottsylvania, and lost 18 killed and 48 wounded. At Hanover Junction and the second Cold Harbor the loss was 6 killed and 16 wounded, and then the regiment took its place in the "last ditch" at Petersburg. At Deep Bottom a third of its 275 men present were killed or wounded, and at Fussell's Mill the loss was 13 killed and 90 wounded. The Fifteenth took part in the subsequent severe fighting, and surrendered at Appomattox 170 strong. Of 1633 on the rolls, over 260 fell in battle, 440 died in the service, and 231 were transferred or discharged. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Field and Staff Colonels - James Cantey of Russell; promoted.

  4. I like the 1906 Half Dollar and couple of others.
  5. That SUX!!!!!! If there going to do that why dont they just take in all the copper pennies and replace the with New ones. Big profit in exchange.
  6. Should I auction one off on here??? Starting bid $1 plus shiping in 2X2 flip. shiping is probally $1.50 what ever shipping is????
  7. For sure!!!! I hate when you get a Second chance offer 5 minutes later. Owner raising the bid and then offering to sell it like someone wouldnt pay.
  8. Bite marks to see if its real. Just kidding. I cant tell from the pic. Can you get a little closer? Not that I would know if you could.
  9. Not the one I have. What would cause it if its not a Strike through? I think its a strike through grease. Some of the have black dirt in them. But they look like grease stains. These are from a new roll. I have a dime that looks the same but the lines are deeper.

  15. Starbusrt is a Struck Through Error. Struck through grease. There are several PCGS, NGC, ICG for sale on Ebay. Here are my pics.
  16. Starburst. It looks like sun rays all the way around George's head in a circle. Like when you look at a star and you see the light rays in a circle around it. Do you see the staight lines on the coin?
  17. I got 2 rolls. All of them have this Starburst look to it. Some with filled S. Some with a die crack at the tip of N in president. Is the Starbust being Considered and Error??? What would cause this? I have some with Filled S(reverse), Die Crack on the N(obverse), and Starburst(Front and Back). If it has 3 errors would this be desireable?
