What shapeforthesouth is doing on Fold3…
Phil, I would like to see a source for this information.The Civil War soldiers and Sailors system does not list a man by that name in either army. I have reserached the 1st Native using the CWS&S (http://www.itd.nps.gov/cwss/soldiers.cfm ) and have found only 914 names, Do you have a source for other names in this unit? Thanks George ...more

Using dates, which match exactly, from this article it appears Robert Wilson served in the 16th Virginia, USA., not CSA. He was not discharged but deserted, nothing indicates he was black. No Robert or Bob Wilson found in the 16th Va., CSA. Sources-- Footnote Civil War Soldiers and Sailors System
