Itemized account for 58 men and interestingly for 1 woman, and for rations of beef, pork, flour, rice, coffee, sugar, vinegar, candles, soap, and salt. Signed by Lieut. Wm. N. Dickey. The document also has an autograph endorsement signed by Colonel R.P. Campbell, as follows: "The A.C.S. will issue agreeably to the above, R.P. Campbell, Col. 7th N.C.T. Light age toning and wear. Very fine manuscript. Extremely desirable regiment.

Reuben P. Campbell, was a 43 year old resident of Iredell County, N.C., when he enlisted on May 16, 1861, as a colonel, and was commissioned into the 7th North Carolina Infantry. He was killed in action on June 27, 1862, at Gaines' Mills, Va., while carrying the regimental colors, and leading a charge against the Union lines. Campbell had been a graduate of the United States Military Academy in 1840, and was commissioned 2nd lieutenant of the 2nd U.S. Dragoons. He was promoted to the rank of 1st lieutenant on November 3, 1845, and brevet captain, on February 23, 1847, for gallantry in the Mexican War battle of Buena Vista. Promoted to captain on August 8, 1851, Campbell resigned his commission in the U.S. Army, on May 11, 1861, to join the Confederate army, and was commissioned colonel of the 7th North Carolina Infantry with the further particulars as mentioned above.

William N. Dickey, was a 27 year old school teacher from Mecklenburg County, N.C., when he enlisted as a first lieutenant, on May 16, 1861, and was commissioned into Co. I, 7th North Carolina Infantry. He was wounded in action on June 30, 1862, shot in the right thigh at the battle of Frayser's Farm, Va. He resigned from the Confederate army on February 23, 1863, as a result of the wound he had received in battle.

Captain James R. McCauley, whose company this provision return was made out for, was also a school teacher. He was 25 years old resident of Burke Co., N.C., when he enlisted as a captain on May 16, 1862, and was commissioned into Co. I, 7th North Carolina Infantry. He was wounded in action on June 27, 1862, at the battle of Gaines' Mill, Va.; was wounded a second time, this happening at the battle of Chancellorsville, Va., on May 3, 1863; and McCauley met his ultimate fate on the battlefield at Reams' Station, Va., when he was killed on August 25, 1862.

The hard fought 7th North Carolina Infantry took an active part in the fight at New Bern, N.C., then moved to Virginia where they became part of the Army of Northern Virginia. After fighting at Hanover Court House, the regiment participated in the various campaigns of the A.N.V. from the Seven Days Battles to Cold Harbor, and were also involved in the devastating siege of Petersburg, Va. They suffered 51 casualties at New Bern, 253 out of the 450 engaged during the Seven Days Battles, 69 at 2nd Manassas, 52 at Sharpsburg, 86 at Fredericksburg, 37 killed and 127 wounded at Chancellorsville, of the 291 engaged at Gettysburg, 31 per cent fell, 5 were killed and 62 wounded in the Wilderness, and 11 were killed and 28 wounded at Spotsylvania. On February 26, 1865, the regiment was sent back to North Carolina where they eventually surrendered with the Army of Tennessee with 13 officers and 139 men. A detachment of the unit had also been left with the A.N.V., and they surrendered with only 1 officer and 18 men left.
