Then, the next surviving roll (for March/April 1864 but dated October 4th 1864) indicates him as AWOL as of October 1st 1864. The roll for May/June 1864 (dated December 13th 1864) has an odd entry noting that he resigned as Sgt October 1, 1864. The roll for July/August 1864 (dated January 30th 1865) carries the notation "stoppage (referring to pay) account of ordinance dept - resigned position 10/1/64". These entries lead me to believe that he may have been an Ordinance Sgt responsible for keeping the troops supplied with ammunition and weapons. One can only guess what the trouble was that caused him to resign and return to being a private. These early 1864 rolls do also imply that he would have been present during the grinding Overland Campaign that saw ferocious battles at the Wilderness, Spotsylvania and Cold Harbor.
He served throughout the rest of the war, being captured with most of the Legion Infantry at Sailors Creek, Va. April 6th 1865. He was then imprisoned at Newport News until taking the Oath of Allegiance and being released June 25th 1865. His Oath contains a physical description which shows him to have been 5 foot 10 inches tall with blue eyes and dark hair.
His 1899 pension application to the State of Georgia contains a doctor's statement that his poor health is due to "old wounds". Enoch himself states that "a cavalryman's horse ran over me on the retreat and knocked my shoulder out of place and hirt (sic) me in my side." Enoch lived until April 11th 1913 dying at the age of 83.
