Company K, 18th North Carolina
Infantry, Lane's Brigade,
Wilcox's Division, Third Corps

Resident: Bladen County, North Carolina

Enlisted: April 1861

A comrade of Robeson's wrote about the battle on April 2, 1865: "The men of Lane's Brigade were some twenty feet apart in the trenches when the final attack was made. Our thin line could make but feeble resistance. We detained them, however, until the lines were broken beyond us." Robeson surrendered with the army at Appomattox Court House on April 9, 1865.
