    • Buried: Memory Hill Cemetery, Milledgeville, GA - West side, Section H, Lot 19, Person 3

      Military Service: Confederate States of America
      Co.H.,4th Ga. Wound-Sharpsburg, per RCSG

      The below is from Anne J. Bailey and Walter J. Fraser, Jr.'s book entitled, Portraits of Conflict: A Photographic History of Georgia in the Civil War, Fayetteville: University of Arkansas, 1996, which is a very nice book with pictures and short biographical sketches of several people buried in Memory Hill Cemetery.

      "Jacob Caraker, who had been captain of the guard at the Georgia State Penitentiary before the Civil War, joined the Baldwin Blues as 1st lieutenant in April 1861. The Blues eventually became Company H, 4th Georgia Infantry. Caraker was elected captain of his company when George Doles, who previously held that rank, became regimental colonel. Caraker commanded his men when Lee began his offensive; the captain's first fight was on June 25, 1862, at King's School House. The 4th Georgia lost almost 50 men there and suffered approximately one hundred additional casualties seven days later on the slopes of Malvern Hill. Caraker survived both battles, but was later wounded at Sharpsburg and resigned from service on February 3, 1863."
