In a last ditch effort, South Carolina called up the militia units. Boys 17 and men over 44 were called up in May 1864 (Senior Reservces). In November, these units were cobverted to regular CSA units and South Carlina called up the last reserves, boys 16 years old and younger (Junior Reserves). Details on these young boy and old men patriots can be found on Seed Corn Units Overview
The service of native born South Carolinans was definately not limited to SC CSA units or even SC Militia. Every CSA state owes much to their contributions. The above are 4 King Brothers from the Sumter Distriect that served from Houston County, GA and they are John Hamblin King (born May 1826, died Dec 1878). Sylvester Capers King (died prior to 1887). Francis Marion King (born 1843, died Dec 1908). and Alfred A. King (born 11 Oct 1831, died 28 Nov 1903). The County History states: "In fact, it might be said that the South Carolinians in the eighteen forties and fifties fairly poured in. The observation has been made that every Captain that led Houston County companies to the War Between the States, except one, was a native of the Palmetto State."
