Civil War Record of Sidney Shelby Dudney

Here is a bit of information on Sidney Shelby Dudney not found in The Dudney Trail by Lynn Dudney. Sidney S. Dudney was a Private in Company E of the 28th Tennessee Confederate Infantry. This outfit was also known as the 2 Mountain Regiment of Tennessee Volunteers. He first enlisted on August 11, 1861 at Camp Zollicoffer in Overton County, Tennessee - he was 45 years old. On September 28,1861 he was appointed orderly. He was discharged from duty on May 8, 1862. Evidently, the discharge was honorable because he was paid on May 14, 1862. Thus the only major battle Sidney would have participated in was the Battle of Fishing Creek in Kentucky on January 19, 1862.

Sidney Shelby Dudney's eldest son James D. Dudney also was a Private in Company E of the 28th Tennessee Confederate Infantry. James served in the entire war and survived the war. He would have participated in these battles: Battle of Fishing Creek (Jan. 19, 1862), Battle of Murfreesboro or Stones River (Dec. 31,1862-Jan. 2, 1863), Battle of Chickamauga(Sept. 19-20,1863), Chattanooga Campaign, Atlanta Campaign, Battle of Franklin, Battle of Nashville, etc.

Included with James D. Dudney's service records are the service records of a 17 year old named James M. Dudney, presumably the son of James D. Dudney. James M. Dudney's records end without any reason after April 28, 1862.

Just thought someone out there might be interested in this.
