George Lewis in The Guns of the South
Captain George Lewis was company commander of D Company of the 47th North Carolina infantry regiment during the Second American Revolution. When hostilities ended, Lewis was elected to the North Carolina state assembly from the Confederate Party.
Although a slave owner and planter himself, he supported Robert E. Lee's run for President of the Confederate States in 1867 and campaigned on his behalf in Nash county. After the Richmond Massacre occurred on March 4, 1868, he and his old company were recalled to duty to act as military police during the declaration of martial law. They also became involved in combat operations at Rivington.
