I had known that my GG Grandfather, William LANKFORD of Princess Anne, was dishonorably discharged from the Union Army. I recently found out that the majority of the members of Company K, 1st Regiment of the Eastern Shore Infantry were discharged dishonorably. They did not desert, so what happened? All the dishonorable discharges were dated July 2, 1863, the second day of the Battle of Gettysburg. It seems strange that there would be so many dishonorables in one company at a famous battle and no one should leave a record of same. Did they flee or retreat against orders? Get drunk the night before? Would appreciate it if anyone could shed light on this.
