[422] (139) enlisted men belonging to the Seventh were paroled on 1st May, 1865. Major J. G. Harris was in command of the regiment, and commanded it oftener in the battle and on the march than any officer in it. The gallant Captain J. McLeod Turner was paralyzed by the wound received at Gettysburg, and walked with the aid of crutches until his death, some three years since.

Wishing you success for the future, and that your last days may be your best days, I am, truly, your friend,

J. S. Harris, Captain Company B, Seventh North Carolina Troops.
