William Jackson served in the United States Civil War.
Enlisted: 9 September 1861
Side: CSA
Regiment(s): Company K, 16th Louisiana Infantry


William Harrison Jackson, oldest child of Robert Henry Jackson and Rebecca Trammill, was born 20 November 1840 in Alabama. He enlisted in the Civil War on 9 September 1861, at Camp Moore, Louisiana, and served as a Private in Company K, 16th Louisiana Infantry, CSA. His military record shows him wounded and left at Murfreesboro on 31 December 1863, but was later shown as a prisoner of war captured at Missionary Ridge, Tennessee, on 25 November 1863. He was then sent to Military Prison in Louisville, Kentucky, on 7 December 1863, from there to Camp Chase, Ohio; finally transferred to City Point, Virginia, on 2 April 1863 where he was finally exchanged. Family tradition states that William Harrison Jackson was killed during the Civil War and although this has never been proven, no further record is available on this child.
