My gggrandfather Elisha Mack Peeler and two of his brothers, Jacob F Peeler and Wiley Mack Peeler, Joined Co. G. 25th Regiment, North Carolina Troops, during the Civil War. NC sent recruiters down to this area (Watkinsville & Athens) at the beginning of the war. The regiment from the Athens area started out as the Highland Guards organized 8 July 1861 to the 25th. They served with Lee's Army of Northern Va. and surrendered at Appomattox. Company G was from Athens, Clay and Macon Cos. NC, commanded by Wm. s. Grady, who was promoted to Major and mortally wounded at the "Crator" 30 June 1864, and after by Capt. John S. Hayes, then John H. Phinisee (Phinizy) and they fought along side of Elisah A Pledger, John Pledger, Marshall Pledger and Thomas Pledger. Would like to know more about these Pledger boys that were so devestated by the Civil War.
