Deeply Rooted in North Carolina


Deeply Rooted in North Carolina

Author:  Dr. Juanita Patience Moss

Description:  Two runaway slave brothers forever separated after joining the union army.

Two young runaway slaves from Edenton, NC enlisted in the Union Army under the surname “Patience.” The elder, Thomas, joined the 5th MA Colored Cavalry while the younger, Crowder, joined the 103rd PA Infantry. After the war, Thomas returned to North Carolina while Crowder went with his regiment to Pennsylvania, never to meet again.

Not until 2000, when the author, Crowder’s descendant, discovered Thomas’ name inscribed on the Wall of Honor in Washington, DC, was it known that two Patiences had served during the Civil War.
