Greenville "Green" Burke

Information from The National Archives - Microfilm publication #253,

Roll #64. Burk, Greenville - Company G, 5th Kentucky Mounted Infantry
- Confederate States Army - Initial Rank = Private - Final Rank
Private. From microfilm publication #319, roll #106 - Surname letter "B" -

Military unit - Confederate 5th Mounted - State = Kentucky* - Greenville
Burk - Rank = Pvt. - James M. Carey's Company - Kentucky Infantry.. Name appears on Company Master Roll for Nov. 11, 1861 to ---------. Enlisted
Nov. 11, 1861, at Camp near Pound Gap, Virginia, by Lt. R. B. Thomas, CSA, for a period of 12 months. Last paid by whom - No payments.

Present or absent - marked present. Sworn Nov. 5, 1861.
* This company subsequently became Company G, 5th Regiment,
Kentucky Infantry Mounted. In October 1861, about 1,000 Confederate sympathizers gathered at Prestonsburg and formed the 5th Kentucky Infantry often called "The Ragamuffin Brigade", and they participated in the Battle of Ivy Mountain on November 8, 1861, where the Confederate troops were routed.
According to local stories, one Confederate trooper escaped capture by running into a cornfield and beginning to pull fodder. He went undetected as pursuing Federalists believed him to be a local farmer. The 5th Kentucky continued upriver and established winter camp near Pound, Virginia where Green was enlisted as a private. His daughter, Lexie states that he was told to go home after he refused to take off a lindsey-woolsey suit when ordered to do so even after the threat of having a hole put in the suit. It is known that he didn't remain with the Confederates very long and received no pay. His second child was born in 1862 and the third in 1863. His request for a pension (when one was
authorized by congress) was denied. There is a story about a soldier coming home in long underwear one night and returning to camp before dawn. The Confederates took the pants of
their recent conscripts, and this persons pants were in such a location that his absence would have been noticed if they were retrieved. Since members of the unit knew where he lived, his life would have been in jeopardy if he did not return. Unknown if this was Green.
