The above are the members who first and last joined the Company. Many of them joined for twelve months and were honorably discharged at the expiration of the twelve months period. The time served was from the 17th day of September, 1861 till May 1st, 1865.

This Company was mustered into service on the 17th day of September, 1861 by General J.E. Slaughter and placed under command of Genreal Braxton Bragg at Pensacola, Florida at the Navy Yard and Forts McRae and Barancas. Our Company, who went to North Alabama, relieved Genreal Clanton and Camp Perdido. We remained there till the evacuation of Pensacola and then did service in the Army on the Coast until General Lee surrendered and the President was assinated.

There were quite a number of Parkers among my command during the four years and not one of them ever deserted, but served faithfully till the end.

The name Parker is pleasant to me. The Parkers have always been my friends,  personally and politically. I served four consecutive terms, twenty four years, as Probate Judge (Escambia County) and Judge of the county court and they always supported me.

Signed) N.R. Leigh, Captain
