Enlisted 8 April 1862 at Loachapoka AL by W.W. Meadors; Appears on Muster Roll of Co G dated 13 May 1862; WIA and died of wounds at Vicksburg MS according to Eyewitness S.L. Burney recalled the event of his death in his memoirs of circa 1916:
"... One day during one of their periodical shellings a shell exploded directly over our heads just where I was standing killing two men, Nute Culbreth and Nute Hammonds, the only two men in the company by the name of Nute. We did not know for some time that Hammonds had been hit owing to the screams of Culbreth. The shrapnel from the shell had penetrated his knee joint producing terrible pain. Finally Hammonds who was near me and lying down was noticed to be writhing round and on examination it was found that a piece of shell had hit him a glancing stroke on the head making a gaping wound out of which his brain was seen to pour. Poor fellow, he never knew any pain. Culbreth’s wound proved fatal a few days later from lock-jaw...";
