From "Reminiscences of Hugh W Barclay" Lt. of this Company
.
When Georgia seceded James H. Huggins recently a returned Californian and myself proceeded to raise a company. The country was a unit for war and soon we had a company of 100 men rank and file. They were a fine body of men, few of whom over 21 years of age, the very pictures of health and dressed in their brown jeans pants and round abouts, drawn up in line they presented a splendid appearance. This Company was called the Blue Ridge Volunteers, the first to leave the county and was officered as follows, J.H. Huggins, Capt., John Reece 1st Lt., H.W. Barclay 2nd Lt. and Jesse P. King, 3rd Lt. Now these were farmer boys, many of them had never seen a railroad, some of them never out of the County, but they were brave. The outside world was a revelation to them, and when well drilled and half starved, as many times they were, in after years they were fighters of the first quality. The travelled experience of our Captain was a great help towards securing his election, for as globe trotters, none of us were distinguished. The whole county, it seemed to me were in Blairsville the day appointed for our assembling and departure. We had a big dinner, speeches were made, flag presented, a general mingling and commingling of the crowd and the whole scene presented the appearance of a grand jollification. There was laughter and joking and pranks, some tears perhaps, but nothing to mar our pleasure, or indicative of the hard times before us.
Mother was not present and just before we were to leave, I went to tell her goodbye and found her in tears. She of all the people seemed to have a presentiment of the seriousness of our undertaking, so I left somewhat saddened to join the company, and soon we were on the march to Big Shanty.
The farmers proposed to haul us, but we were too patriotic for that and accepting one wagon to carry our baggage, we footed it all the way, ninety miles. Along the road we were cheered, flags and handkerchiefs waved, and we lived on the fat of the land. It seemed to me that the people were crazy and we were wild crazy.
Arriving at Big Shanty we found quite a number of companies from other counties, and nine of these with the Blue Ridge Volunteers formed the 23rd Georgia regiment. Hutchinson was elected Colonel, W.P. Barclay Lt. Col. and E.M. Best Major. Here for some weeks we drilled and became accustomed to the duties of camp life. Here we had the Old United States ration, which was good enough for anybody, besides pies, cakes, fruits and so on, brought in by the ladies and other visitors.
We wasted enough at Big Shanty in one week to have lasted us very well two weeks the latter part of the war.
We were anxious to get to the seat of war and soon orders came to report to Richmond. Soldiers are ever restless when still, and especially was this the case with the most of us who had never been anywhere.

According to King family Bible records, George Henry King was born to John and Elizabeth King on 27 Apr 1824. He married Mary A Price 24 Dec 1848. The 1850 census record of Murphy Township, Cherokee Co NC lists George and Mary living on a farm just down the road from John and Elizabeth King. George is 26 years old, a farmer born in NC. Mary A is 28 years old, a housewife born in TN. Their children are John V, age 3 Zechariah, age 3 months George's Confederate military service record shows his enlistment in the Confederate army 31 Aug 1861 at Camp McDonald GA. He commenced service as a Private with Company B, 23rd Regiment, Georgia Volunteer Infantry, on September 19, 1861. He is reported as captured 3 May 1863 near Fredericksburg VA and paroled the same day. The "Roster of Georgians in the CSA" states that he was captured at Chancellorsville, paroled at Fort Delaware, and exchanged at City Point on 23 May 1863. He was appointed Corporal in the fall of 1863 and Sergeant the following spring. Without detail or explanation, a register of Confederate General Hospital in Greensboro NC lists him as admitted in March of 1865. According to family Bible records, he died 30 Jan 1867.
