Hello, Terry- The word "detailed" keeps cropping up in what records I've found regarding the men who built the equipment used in Mr. Lincoln's War by the Southern side who were active military. Following as example garnered during search of people involved in the Southern Torpedo Co. effort:
CARROLL, James M. 34 17/A 5/D PVT PVT Charleston Enlisted at Charleston, SC, 17 Feb 1862. Detailed to W. S. Henery & Co., Foundry, Charleston, SC, until end of war.
Jacob Seaman, born in New Jersey, has turned out to be an interesting fellow. His artisan capabilities with wood were utilized in fabrication of ships furniture (Helms, blocks, etc.) He also made the patterns for iron molds and the patterns for the original Pepsi-Cola bottle. (Pepsi-Cola The official softdrink of the Confederacy). He is buried in Magnolia Cemetery, Mt. Pleasent, Charleston, SC.
When danger threatened the factory employees were turned out for use on the field. Mention made in several sources of having to fight off impressment at several localities.
Though not Naval, the barrel straightener at Richmond Arsenal was morned after being killed fighting the Kilpatrick Raid on Richmond by Col. Gorgas.
