At the National Archives, there are 15 Civil War records on Coleman Jarred (Jart) Hudson's service.

 

Cathy Blow  “ The cards posted were written by agents who years after the war (30 years I think) numbered and compiled all the records turned into the war department and these compiled records were sent to the NARA file storage and access.  The numbers on the cards goes with a paper in the folder.  The papers in the folder would be the originals.  They were all hand written.  I posted a chart on old style letters.  you can see that C could be read as a J and J could be read as I and so on.  I posted a CJ Hudson that says no medical or personal papers.  To begin to solve the problem may be an elimination of all Hudson that joined from the 3 counties (Wayne, Johnston, Sampson).  Wayne and Johnston because the county lines changed but families did not move.  In the mortality schedules I was reading and their was Hutson family living in the same area and the Hudson families.  I don't think it was a taker's error because the Hutson spelling was following and before and after line entries with Hudson.  The report was by the same taker.  There are also Hutson families in Duplin as well as Hudson families.  I would think that some have thought was a variant of Hudson, I agree but there is obviously Hutson family also.  I think you may find that there is another C.J. Hudson or maybe 2.   I just have not followed the census, service records to confirm or eliminate.

1862, 7-12 - CJ - Wounded at Cold Harbor
1862- July 12   Casualties IN THE BATTLE OF COLD HARBOR
Mechanicsville, Virginia


20th N.C. Regiments reported in several newspapers across N.C. 

The  20th N.C. Regiments went into the fight at Cold Harbor with 859 guns and charged alone and unsupported upon the battery on the extreme right of the enemy's lines, supported by the 12th and the 14th U.S. Regulars and a regiment of Volunteers. The infantry was driven in and the battery carried. The Colonel was shot down before reaching it. Lieutenant Col. was killed sitting on one of the guns. At this moment either the enemy or some bastard gave the order to retreat, which the Lieut. Col. hearing, repeated, and the regiment fell back, losing heavily in their retreat to the woods. Both officers and men agree that they could have held the battery but for the order to retreat. The distance charged over was 400 yards, across the open field uphill- When other troops afterward charged and carried the battery the regiment joined them. 

Since the fight the regiment has been engaged again in the battle on Tuesday evening, suffering severe losses, but they are not yet reported

1863, 7-23 - Civil War -CJ- Muster Roll



July 23, 1863  MUSTER ROLL FROM START OF WAR TO JUNE 30, 1863

CJ enlisted on March 4, 1861 at Fort Johnson, N.C.  by Capt. Cox
His period of service was from the start of the war to June 30,1863. 
He was paid by Capt. West April 30, 1863
He was present at the time this mustard roll was called. 

The purpose of the mustard roll call was to determine who was present. When a unit is created, it is called being "mustard in" and when it is disbanded, it is called "mustard out". It also lists the member of military unit, the rank and the dates they joined and left.  An officer read outloud to determine the response of the soldier.

Explanation of Confederate Muster Card

1. Filing information includes the first letter of the surname, regiment number and the state where the unit originated.

2. The soldier’s name appears on the top line. Beware of spelling variations when searching for records. This soldier was listed as S.G. Morgan on other muster cards.

3. The soldier’s rank at the time of muster is listed, along with the complete name of the unit in which he was serving.

4. The card indicates how long the muster period was. This example shows a two-month period between this muster and the previous one, which would’ve been in December 1862.

5. The enlistment date and location often indicate the soldier’s usual place of residence. Start looking in the 1860 census for this person and his family. The 45th Regiment Artillery was organized at Camp Mangum, near Raleigh, NC, in April 1862, with men recruited from Rockingham, Caswell, Guilford and Forsyth counties.

6. The enlistment period, in this case three years, is important because Confederate re-enlistment legislation, the Bounty and Furlough Act, promised every soldier who re-enlisted for three years or for the duration of the war a bounty of $50 and a 60-day furlough. The soldier could choose his arm of the service or join a new unit.

7. Pay information appears on each muster card with the name of the officer the soldier reported to and the period of payment.

8. State bounty and Confederate bounty amounts might be listed if the soldier re-enlisted under the terms of the Bounty and Furlough Act and received the bounty.

9. The soldier was marked as being present or absent at the muster. Remarks were added to explain an absence. Furlough, wounding, hospitalization, capture by the enemy, absent without leave or killed in action are the most common notations.
