    North Carolina State Troops: 48th Regiment by: Weymouth T. Jordan, Jr. Caption below photo reads:

    Image of Private Matthew C. Yow of Company D, Forty-Eighth Regiment N.C. Troops. Yow is wearing a waist-length jacket and holding a book, which rests on a cloth-covered side table. It is likely that the same photographer captured this image and the one of Private Cornelius A. Stutts of the same unit (see frontispiece). Both poses and backgrounds are similar, and both soldiers are wearing the same type of uniform. Image supplied by Mrs. Thomas J. Cumby of Mount Airy, North Carolina.

    Note: Corporal Matthew C. Yow was fatally wounded by a cannon ball near Hanover Junction, Virginia on or about 23 May 1864. He died in the hospital in Petersburg, Virginia in June 1864. He was wounded by the same cannon ball that killed 1st Sgt. Cornelius Dowd Lawhon of that same company -- Lacy Garner
