Pvt. Mercer received a leave on April 18, '64 and to rejoin the company at Augusta. On June 11, 1864 he was captured at Louisa Courthouse, Va. He was sent to Fortress Monroe June 20th and on to Point Lookout, Md. (There was a mention of Elmira Prison but I feel that he didn't go there.)
Pvt. John Mercer died August 6, 1864.
