From the Charleston Museum. Unit not identified. Ornate artillery officer's uniform, probably from early in the war, as it has epaulettes. The broad plastron has a Napoleonic air to it.
Uniform worn by James Wiley Gibson (Orangeburg, SC), who was killed at the Battle of Secessionville, SC, June 16, 1862. The bullet entry hole is visible at the left breast. The coat and trousers are likely a product of the Porter Industrial School for Girls in Charleston. Charleston Museum.

Through joint efforts between the Atlanta City Council and the Confederate Government, land adjoining the City Cemetery was secured as burial ground for Confederate Soldiers. Approximately 6,900 departed Confederate Soldiers rest in the peaceful gardens of Oakland Cemetery in designated areas. Ironically enough, among them lies 16 Union Soldiers who died while in Confederate hospitals.
