Older Confederate- Looking at details

Ward Mem Detail, originally uploaded by Gene Bowker.

I shot this in Ward, SC back in March.

I just noticed this morning when going through the shots about him serving in the Confederate Army. He was born in 1802, so that would of put him in his late 50s to early 60s during the war, much older than the 30's which were common for officers on both sides.

I'll have to do some more research to see if I can find some history of his service.
