By the later part of the War Between the States

available manpower began to decline, and then it

became necessary to utilize the services of the men

who originally were too old to serve in the regular

troops in defending the Southern Homeland. In the

year 1864 there were several companies of Senior

Reserves and Supporting Forces, created in the northern

part of North Carolina. One of those companies

raised in this area was under the leadership of

Captain Benjamin J. Blackly of the county. The

main enrollments took place in Granville County. From

the information given by these enlisted men, most of

their places of birth were from Granville County. Upon

enlistment the men the enrolling officer with the

following information: Age; birth place; Height
