General Note

  • Martin was born on March 18, 1832, in South Carolina. He was educated at the Citadel military academy in Charleston. In 1855 he moved to Florida and built a home in Marion County. In 1861 Martin volunteered in and was elected captain of the Marion Light Artillery. After being wounded, he served in the new Confederate Congress. Martin declined re-election to that body and returned to the army as a colonel in the 9th Florida Regiment. He fought in three key episodes of the Civil War in Virginia: the Battle of Cold Harbor, the Wilderness Campaign, and the Seige of Petersburg.
