We are moving, hopefully for the last time. My thanks to Traci Parsons who has worked so hard to move these pages and give them a new look and complete make over. She is a wonderful friend and I am extremely grateful for her hours of hard work.

Moving is a long and difficult process. Hopefully the Sixteenth site will follow shortly to the new address. My thanks for your patience, remember to bookmark the new address. This site will remain but will no longer be updated.

The delays and off time with Geocites and Tripod, I cannot control, but the sites will continue. I thank all of you for your support and kindness to me. I had no idea. Again my thanks, steve

I am pretty sure that this was a mistake made in the fall of 1864, and that this unit is actually 1st Georgia Reserves. They were commanded by Major John Cunningham and show up repeatedly and did surrendered at Durham Station. Only the one mention of a SC unit by this name.
