"One of the family stories is that Alfred was severely
injured during a skirmish between Yankee gunboats and the 4th
GA Cavalry. Upon researching the 4th GA. I found in the Order
Of The Rebellion, Series 1 - Volume XIV (S#20), correspondence,
Orders, and Returns Relating To The Operations On The Coasts Of
South Carolina, Georgia, and Middle and East Florida from April
12, 1862 to June 11, 1863, Confederate correspondence, etc., #12
dated February 11, 1853, a memo from Thomas Jordan, Chief of Staff
to Brig. General Joseph Finegan, Commanding District of East Florida
in Lake City, FL. This memo discusses the successful capture of
the Union steamer Issac Smith in the Stono River by Colonel Yates..

all the batteries of field guns and sharpshooters and when reaching
the battery farthest up river it began to fire on the gunboat
requiring the boat to run a gauntlet to escape down river. General
Finegan was instructed to place himself in communication with
Colonel Clinch, 4th Georgia Cavalry, to do something of a similar
nature on the St. Mary's River. The compiled record for A. C.
Strickland shows he was absent from the muster roll beginning
March 1863 to November 1863 appears to confirm the story of his
