Biography of Thomas G. Pugh

Below is my biography of Thomas G. Pugh. Since he was not an officer in the Army, there is no biography of him in the National Archives.

   Very little is know of Thomas G. Pugh. He is not found in the 1860 Census or in the Confederate Army records, despite the Quartermaster General's statement that he had been wounded in the field and was no longer able to soldier. A Thomas Pugh, of Appomattox County, Virginia, was found to be unable to do field service in the Camp of Instruction in August, 1863 and may be the man in question.
   It is likely that the vouchers for service from April 1 to September 30, 1864 have been lost.
