He was in Wayside Hospital, Demopolis, Alabama, on October 17, 1863.  Then he was captured at Resaca, May 16, 1864.  He was received at the US Army General Hospital at Chattanooga with a lacerated wound of the head caused by a shell (hit his right eye) from the May 15th battle at Resaca.  He was sent to Camp Douglas and discharged from there on June 13, 1865.  He was 27 in 1864. William T. Ledbetter applied for his CSA pension on July 30, 1885.  He was a private in Company E of the 31st Regiment of Alabama Volunteers.  He was wounded, while in the discharge of his duty on the 15th Day of May 1864 at Resaca in the State of Georgia, in consequence of which wound he received such wound in such service as renders him physically incapable of making a livelihood by labor, that he was a resident of the State of Alabama on the 17th day of February 1885, that he is now a resident of Precinct No. 14 in Calhoun county, and State of Alabama and is at present engaged in business as a farmer; that he does not own in his own name, nor does his wife own, two thousand dollars worth of property, after deducting the amount of all encumbrances thereon; and that he is entitled to relief under the act Providing for the Relief of Soldiers Maimed or Disabled during the late war, approved February 17, 1885.  William T. Ledbetter made his mark (due to total blindness) on July 30, 1885. My grandmother told me that he was left on the battlefield for dead and when they came back for the bodies several days later they discovered he was still alive.  His eye was severely infected so he lost that eye and the infection spread to his other eye which eventually blinded him completely.  Source:   Judith Massey
