North Carolina Company F, 51st Regiment

This company, know as the "Ashpole True Boys", was raised in Robeson County and enlisted at Lumberton on March 10, 1862. It was mustered into state service at Wilmington on April 21, 1862, and assigned to the 51st Regiment N.C. Troops as Company F. After joining the regiment the company functioned as a part of the regiment, and its history for the remainder of the war is reported as a part of the regimental history.

The information contained in the following roster was compiled primarily from a company muster-in and descriptive roll dated April 21, 1862, and from company muster rolls dated March 10, 1862-December 31, 1864. No company muster rolls were located for the period after December 31, 1864. Valuable information was obtained from primary records such as the North Carolina adjutant general's Roll of Honor, discharge certificates, medical records, prisoner of war records, The War of the Rebellion: A Compilation of the Official Records of the Union and Confederate Armies, militia records, newspaper casualty lists and obituaries, Confederate pension applications filed with the state of North Carolina, and the 1860 federal census of North Carolina. Secondary sources such as postwar rosters and histories, cemetery records, the Confederate Veteran, published genealogies, and records of the United Daughters of the Confederacy also provided useful information.

Albert Allan McLean enlisted in Company G, 24th Regiment North Carolina State Troops and served throughout the entire war. Ancestor of Joan Oxendine who submitted this information.

The following information is about Dougald Hammonds (also spelled Dugald Hammons or Hammond) who served in Co. F., 51st Regiment, Ashpole Boys. After he was captured, the exchange program for captured soldiers was in suspense, so Dougald agreed to enlist in the 1st Regiment, U.S. Volunteer Army rather than remain in the prison camp indefinitely. The following information describes the movements of the 1st Regiment, U.S. Volunteer Army, Dougald's fate, and the history of Fort Rice, Dakota Territory.

1st Regiment Infantry. Organized at Point Lookout, MD in 1864. Moved to Norfolk, VA and provost duty there and at Portsmouth, VA, District of Eastern Virginia, Dept. of Virginia and North Carolina to 1864. Ordered to Milwaukee, Wisconsin, thence to St. Louis, Missouri, arriving there August 22. Six companies moved from St. Louis to Ft. Rice, Dakota Territory, arriving there October 17, and garrison duty there. Died January 13, 1865 at Fort Rice, Dakota Territory. Was reinterred at Custer National Cemetery, Montana on March 6, 1905. References: The Civil War Archive, Union Regimental Histories; internet home page for Custer National Cemetery, Garryowen, Big Horn County, Montana.

Fort Rice was established July 7,1864. It was located on a high point on the right bank of the Missouri River opposite the mouth of Long Lake Creek and immediately below the present day town of Fort Rice, North Dakota. It was established by Brigadier General Alfred Sully during his punitive expedition against the Sioux. It was intended to control the Sioux, protect the emigrant route from Minnesota to Montana, and to protect navigation of the Missouri River. In 1865, Sitting Bull led a siege against the newly established Fort Rice. The original barracks consisted of rude buildings made of cottonwood logs with sod roofs, but it was rebuilt in a more substanial from in 1868. After the establishment of Fort Yates, Fort Rice was no longer necessary. It was abandoned on November 25, 1878. A small detachment remained until February 6, 1879 to dismantle the fort and dispose of public property. The military reservation was transferred to the Department of the Interior on July 22, 1884.
