article from the Confederate Veteran mag., dated June, 1894, page 183.

JOHN R. CARWILE, Bradley, S.C.: " The four years I spent in the army are the proudest in my humble career, and I can candidly say that I did my duty to the best of my ability. I served as adjutant of the 7th Regiment, South Carolina Infantry, Kershaw's Brigade, McLaw's Division, Longstreet's Corp., Army of Northern Virginia. After Kershaw's promotion to major general he honored me with a position on his staff. My first year's service was in the ranks. I do not give my positions in a boastful spirit, for above all others I honor and doff my hat to the heroic privates of the Confederate infantry."
