Obituary of C. R. Ezell, Eatonton, Georgia.

[Robert Young, Adjutant R. T. Davis Camp, U. C. V., Eatonton, Ga., reports the death of an honored member, Capt. C. R. Ezell.]

Comrade C. R. Ezell enlisted at Monticello, Ga., April 26, 1861, as second corporal in Company G, 4th Georgia Infantry, at the age of twenty-three. He was promoted to second lieutenant, first lieutenant, and captain. He was wounded at Sharpsburg, Chancellorsville, and the Wilderness. He was made prisoner after being disabled on May 5, 1864, and was one of six hundred officers placed by the Federals under fire of Confederate artillery at Charleston, S. C., in the fall of 1864. Thence he was moved to Fort Pulaski, Ga., and fed on moldy corn meal and pickles forty-three days; thence back to Fort Delaware and released after the close of the war.

Captain Ezell was a brave, fearless soldier. Through the Reconstruction era and later he was an uncompromising Southerner, a good citizen, a loving father, and a faithful friend. He was for several years First Lieutenant Commander of R. T. Davis Camp, No. 759, U. C. V., and a regular attendant on the meetings. He fell asleep in death at his home, near Eatonton, at the age of seventy-six.
