Note from BCGS editor: We have to remember that being listed as deserted didn't always mean that a man had deserted his country. Sometimes he joined another unit because he wanted to, sometimes out of necessity. Some times he was wounded and left behind, then later listed on his Company roll as deserted. He even went home some times and visited his family before reporting to his unit. We must understand the circumstances of this war to understand our ancestors.
