This company roll contains many names of those who served not more than 30 days, casuals marked "cas".
Sergt. Hiram Nettles still in 1926 surviving at age 89, was of great assistance in revising this roll. He served throughout the war, was twice seriously wounded, and knew nearly every man in the company. He witnessed the act of Richard Kirkland in crossing the wall at Fredericksburg. While Capt. Leitner lay wounded on the field of Gettysburg, where he lost his leg above the knee, his friend Thomas W. Salmond, Surgeon of the Regiment went to him under the heaviest fire and took him to the camp hospital on his horse.

This Company derived its name from its home headquarters at the Granite Hill known as " Flat Rock ". Capt. Haile once showed a pipe he framed from the clay of the "Crater" at Petersburg where he commanded a company of the 23rd Regiment, which was posted on the very edge of this great explosion. Sergt. Murchison cut and wore a pair of cuff buttons from a fragment of his own skull.
