    Seeking military records of Samuel Sparks

    Ron McCormick Newbie

      I am trying to get a copy of a military record for my 2Great Grandfather, Confederate Soldier.  Can you help me with this request?   His name is Samuel C Sparks who was born on April 7, 1846 in Elija, Gilmore County, Georgia and died on May 5, 1929, Dutton, Jackson County, Alabama. He enlisted in May 1862 in Georgia. He was 16 years old.  He served in the 36th Georgia Infantry Regiment, Company B. He was captured in Sherman’s March through Georgia in May 1864. He was discharged by taking the Oath Of Allegiance. According to the 1921 Census of Confederate Soldiers, he lived at Dalton, Route 1, Alabama  (probably was Georgia).
