War-date Confederate Document Signed by Stephen Decatur Thurston, Lt. Colonel 3rd North Carolina Infantry and Walter Clark, Ordnance Sergeant, 3rd North Carolina Infantry, being a "Report of Arms of the 3rd North Carolina Regiment, 1pp. oblong quarto, October 20, 1863, and lists shoulder weapons, small arms, bayonets, scabbards, cartridge boxes, etc..." Regimental totals include 256 officers and men. Very good condition. The 3rd North Carolina completed its organization at Garysburg, North Carolina, in May, 1861. The men were volunteers from Wilmington and the counties of Green, Duplin, Cumberland, Onslow, Bladen, New Hanover, and Beaufort. In July part of the regiment moved to Richmond, Virginia, where some weeks later it was joined by the remaining companies. The regiment fought in many battles during the Civil War. At the Battle of Gettysburg the unit suffered terrible casualties, losing forty percent of the 548 men engaged. In April 1865 it surrendered, with just 4 officers and 53 men remaining. Stephen Decatur Thurston was commissioned captain of the 3rd North Carolina on May 5, 1861. He was wounded in action at Sharpsburg, Chancellorsville, Spotsylvania Court House and Winchester.
