The Autauga Rifles was organized at Independence Alabama in May 1861, was camped a few days at Autaugaville and was ordered to Corinth Mississippi. We left home with one hundred men, with Dr. T. A. Davis, Captain, W. F. Davis, 1st Lieutenant, H. L. Golson, 2nd Lieutenant, L. A. Pou, 3rd Lieutenant, G. H. Thompson, 1st Sergeant. From Corinth we were ordered to Manassas Virginia and remained near there during the summer. In June we lost our first member from disease, W. O. DeJarnette and during the summer we lost from camp fever J. J. Willis, A. J. Dodson, John Hampton and W. Wiggins. In March 1862, we broke up winter quarters and were sent to Yorktown. Here we lose another member from sickness, one of our best boys, loved by every one who knew him, David Jones, a messmate. While camped here we were joined by over one hundred men from home. The time of our enlistment being about to expire, we re-enlisted for the war and elected L. A. Pou, Captain, R. G. Golson 1st Lieutenant, G. H. Thompson 2nd Lieutenant, J. D. Perry 3rd Lieutenant, J. M. Thompson 1st Sergeant. Still in the 6th Alabama with John B. Gordon Colonel. In the later part of April we fell back to near Richmond where we remained until the Battle of Seven Pines. Captain Pou was disabled by a wound in his arm and left us to return to home. 

The origin of the Autauga Rifles is described in the April 25, 1861, issue of the Autauga Citizen:  

Autauga Volunteers - Several of our leading men are now engaged in getting up a rifle company to be called the Autauga Rifles, and which is now nearly completed, to be tendered to the Confederate States.  The Prattville Dragoons, a fine looking company, numbering about sixty men, have already tendered their services and will be received.  At least one hundred and fifty Antiguans have already gone to the wars, they having joined the different companies that have been formed in the counties of Dallas, Lowndes, and Montgomery.  We do not like this, as Autauga receives no credit for it.  But our patriotic old county will soon have two as fine companies in the field as ever marched to repel an invading foe, and we feel satisfied that they will give a good account of themselves if they have an opportunity.  Our patriotic citizens have liberally subscribed for the families of those who could not leave home without some provision being made for their wives and children.  Mr. Pratt, our liberal and patriotic townsman, subscribed five hundred dollars, and agreed to put down ten times as much more if it should be necessary.  Messrs. Doster, Northington, Tarleton, and others whose names we do not now remember, have also subscribed liberally.  Autauga will do her duty.

DEATH NOTICES FROM THE SOUTHERN SIGNAL January 7, 1881 (continued): Died on the 24th of November, 1880, at his home in Autaugaville, in the 54th year of his age, Mr. Pierce H. DeBARDELABENSources: Larry E. Caver, Jr

Borrowed from Web site listed Below: The German pronunciation of the name is Bar-de-LAY-ben.  Arthur's son Henry went to Alabama (Autauga) and at some point he (or some of his sons) began spelling the name like it was pronounced - DeBardelaben.   Later, some descendants of these son's decide to change the name back to DeBardeleben.  There are families where brothers sign their names differently from each other.  There are documents signed by these people over time in which they themselves have switched back and forth.  These changes took place in the 1820 - 1890 period.   All of the DeBardelaben families today have a connection to Autauga County, Alabama.

“A Company For The War- We are pleased to learn that Bolling Hall, Jr., son of Maj. Bolling Hall, of this county, has just returned from his regiment in Virginia, duly authorized by the Secretary Of War to raise a company for the war, and now is in our midst using every effort to raise a company, with a fair prospect of success.

  The Commander of his regiment, Col. J.J. Seibles, recommended him to the Secretary as a gentleman of sober, steady habits, and generous, gallant and brave, and in every particular well qualified to command a company.  His knowledge of military matters, he having graduated at a military school and been in actual service ever since the war began, peculiarly fits him for a leader, and we know of no gentleman we would sooner enlist under than our friend Bolling Hall, Jr.  Now is the time for our young men to enlist.  The enemy is at our very doors, and unless we rally to the rescue of our bleeding country, the invader will soon desolate our homes, destroy our property”

A town meeting was held at Kingston which successfully recruited 125 men for Bolling Hall Jr.’s command. The company was named the Fitzpatrick Blues.  Bolling Hall, Jr. and his company of Autaugians were organized into the 59th Alabama Infantry as Company "B".  Bolling Hall, Jr. was promoted to Colonel. His brother, Crenshaw was appointed Adjutant of the 59th, and another brother, John Elmore Hall became Captain of  Company B.  While leading a desperate charge at Chickamauga, Bolling Hall, Jr. was severely wounded.  He returned home to Autauga, and from the results of those wounds, he died in January of 1866. He never married.  Source: Barry N. Wyatt
