Pvt. Andrew Green

From J. C. Porter's manuscript: "This brings us back to the charge, which as before intimated, only lasted a few minues; in which three or four of our men were killed-one named Green, a boy eighteen years old, who had joined our Company two weeks prior to the fight. He being young and thoughtless, did not throw down his gun immediately after the surrender, and some said he advanced toward some Federals with his gun in his hand, when some one shot him. There were a half dozen wounded. I do not know how many of the enemy were killed. The first man who mounted the breastworks, a color bearer, was killed. He lay that night where he fell, with the flag he bore, spread over him."
Private Green was killed at Fort DeRussy, Louisiana, 14 March 1864
