About Jerry Jeremiah Goggans

GEDCOM Note

Civil War Confederate Officer. The "Saluda Riflemen", or Company M, 7th Regiment South Carolina Volunteers was organized in the spring of 1862. Elijah Jeremiah Goggans, with prior service in Company E, was elected captain of this command on May 9, 1862. He received a facial wound the following month at Savage's Station, Virginia (June 29, 1862). He appears to have received an unofficial field promotion to major during the battle of Sharpsburg. As the regiment's senior captain, he commanded the 7th South Carolina beginning at Knoxville and onward until the May 6, 1863 battle known as the Wilderness. There, he received a dangerous wound to his right arm that removed him from further field service. On January 12, 1865, Goggans was promoted to lieutenant colonel with rank backdated to September 20, 1864.
