Hey Pip,

I've got the basic stickers/categories on his profile.  He's missing some info on which company and muster dates.... will see if I can find it.  (I'm not familiar with the NC Civil War resources....)   Maybe someone else will join in to help fill the gaps,  since I'm certainly don't have  "editing super powers"..... also, I'll look for a more specific NC flag for his sticker.

Oh, Peggy, it looks great!!!

Enlisted 1 February 1863. Company A, 11th Norh Carolina.
Peggy, you’ve done a marvelous job with the stickers. Everything looks great. I took out the old one I had out here because yours look so much better.

I switched Co. E to Co. A. Transcription error. (Though maybe my source has the transcription error!! I’ll have to look some more).

Thank you so much for adding so much to George’s profile. It... Looks.... GREAT!!!

Looks like you're off and running.   A couple of loose ends.    It looks like George enlisted too late to have been serving in the 1st NC Infantry  (which disbanded in Nov 1861)..... I removed  the top sticker  Added a few others...... I'm done adding so she's all yours.  

Regarding  Company A  vs  Company E.....  The National Park's service site  (and the Family search source that's posted)  say Company E.......  National Parks Service “The Civil War”  https://www.nps.gov/civilwar/search-soldiers-detail.htm?soldierId=7FA330BE-DC7A-DF11-BF36-B8AC6F5D926A Provides:   Pvt  George A Neal   served in Company E  11th Regiment, North Carolina Infantry (Bethel Regiment) 

I also found a secondary site that says Company A......  Civil War Records of North Carolina by CensusDiggins.com ; http://www.censusdiggins.com/nc_civil_war_n.html   Provides: G.A. Neal  Co A, 11th NC Infantry

Enlisted 2-1-62 at Mecklenburg Co, NC.  Private, age 18.  Wounded & POW in July 1863 at Gettysburg, PA.  In hospital 9-29-64 at Raleigh, NC and had his left arm amputated.  60 day furlough 10-7-64. 

You get to decide  (might have to solve this by actually seeing Muster Rolls...)  but keep in mind,  he won't be with his buddies if you get the wrong company.devil
