James Daniel Moore, Private in Company F ( Of 26th North Carolina Regiment), was the 85th man of his company shot on the first days fight (At Gettysburg, July 1st 1863 at McPherson's Ridge). A ball passed through his leg. When taken to the field hospital the surgeon said he had been fighting Cavalry, as the wound was made by a Carbine 44 calibre, and not by an Enfield rifle, 56 calibre. After the war Moore went to live in Indiana at a place called Winnamac. He there met a man named Hayes who was a member of the 24th Michigan regiment and in the battle of Gettysburg. Hayes had lost his Enfield rifle on the forced march of the night before, and his regiment was going into action on the morning of 1 July, he picked up a Carbine dropped by on of Buford's Cavalry, and used it during the fight. It was the only Carbine in the 24th regiment and just before he retreated, when the colors of the regiment charging him was fifteen or twenty paces distant, he fired in their direction. Moore at the time was alongside the flag and received Hayes' shot. They became good friends and Hayes was of material assisstance to Moore so long as the latter lived in his town.
