SCARBROUGH, Albert ~ On May 11, 1861, ALBERT enlisted in Co. E, 5th Georgia Infantry Regiment and served
until August 16, 1862. The muster roll of August 6, 1861 showed ALBERT as a nurse in the
hospital at Pensacola, Florida. He was discharged in 1862 as being over age; however, two
months later, on November 20, 1862, he re enlisted as a hospital steward with Co. C, 10th
Battalion, Georgia Infantry and served in that capacity until the end of the war. One muster
roll, for the period October 31, 1861 to April 30, 1862, shows ALBERT SCARBOROUGH
"absent-sent from Bethel Springs, sick by order of General MAXIE". Bethel Springs is
located in McNairy County, Tennessee very close to the scene of the battle of Shiloh
Church. That particular battle had been fought on the sixth and seventh of April 1862 and is
described as the greatest battle ever fought on American soil at that time. In two days
23,000 casualties were suffered-10,000 for the South, 13,000 for the North.
