2. Civil War Era NC Website entry for Daniel L. Russell Jr. “Although Russell remained in the army until 1864, his sympathies for the Confederacy did not last long. He was dissatisfied by the army’s organization and structure and became disillusioned by the Confederate leaders, especially President Jefferson Davis. After a scuffle with a superior officer in 1864, a young Russell left the army for the world of politics.” (Submitted on February 5, 2017.)
