1862-1865

Organized in Salem, NC, March 1862, with members from local Moravian congregations. This volunteer Confederate band provided morale-building music for southern troops in many of the major campaigns during the War Between the States. The band was widely recognized as one of General Lee's favorites and served until captured in retreat from Petersburg, VA on April 5 1865. Imprisoned at Point Lookout, MD. The members were paroled in July 1865.
