Abstract:

"This is the story about Arthur Simeon 'Sim' Carrington. The life of Sim and the 6th North Carolina Regiment are explored in this work. This is a supplemental regimental history as well as a very personal biographical sketch of a distinctly American family. The Civil War was a family affair. Sim's family fought in every state where there was a battle. Sim and his cousin, William Preston Mangum were carried off the field at Manassas/Bull Run. Sim served under Robert E. Lee at Second Manassas/Bull Run, Antietam, Fredericksburg, Gettysburg and later was captured and spent the rest of the war as a POW. This work also explores life on the home front through the experiences of his brother William Carrington, a Captain in the 45th North Carolina Militia, and sisters Lucy, Celestia, and Ruth Jane. The Civil War wasn't just about soldiers and battles, it was about men and women sacrificing everything on the altar of America"--Dust jacket.
