    • Jeff Garner enlisted in Co. E, 5th Regt. South Carolina Infantry on April 13, 1861, just days after the first shots were fired at Ft. Sumter. Through 1862, Jeff Garner moved into Co H (the 2nd company) of the same regiment due to reorganization. Beginning in January 1863, he is listed as being detailed to "extra or daily duty at Brigade Quarter Master" rather than in the line with the rest of the men of the unit. Many of the cards list him as a wagonmaster during this time. Finally, he was paroled at Appomattox at the end of the war, having served the entire war with no indication of injury.

      From the National Park Service Solidiers and Sailors database: "5th Infantry Regiment, assembled during March and April, 1861, contained men recruited in Laruens, Lancaster, Spartanburg, and Union counties. It was ordered to Virginia and, serving in D.R. Jones' Brigade, saw action at First Manassas. Later it was placed in General R.H. Anderson's, M. Jenkins', and Bratton's Brigade. It participated in the campaigns of the army from Williamsburg to Fredericksburg, then served in Longstreet's Suffolk operations and with D.H. Hill in North Carolina. Moving again with Longstreet, the unit did not arrive in time to take part in the Battle of Chickamauga, but was engaged at Knoxville. Returning to Virginia, it was conspicuous at The Wilderness, Spotsylvania, and Cold Harbor, in the trenches of Petersburg, and around Appomattox. This regiment reported 3 killed and 23 wounded at First Manassas and totalled 650 men in April, 1862. It sustained 21 casualties at Williamsburg, 81 at Gaines' Mill, 73 at Frayser's Farm, 39 during the Maryland Campaign, and 102 at Wauhatchie. In 1864 it lost 18 killed, 95 wounded,and 16 missing during The Wilderness Campaign, and from June 13 to December 31, there were 11 killed and 65 wounded. On April 9, 1865, the unit surrendered 19 officers and 263 men. The field officers were Colonels A. Coward, John R.R. Giles, and Micah Jenkins; Lieutenant Colonels Andrew Jackson, G.W.H. Legg, and John D. Wylie; and Majors Thomas C. Beckham, William M.Foster, and William T. Thomson."
