University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Senior Class of 1860
from: The Last Ninety Days of the War in North Carolina, by Cornelia Phillips Spencer, published 1866
“The Senior class of 1860 consisted of eighty-four members. With only one exception, all of these men entered the service. More than a fourth of the entire number now fill soldiers’ graves. The proportion of the wounded to the killed is ordinarily estimated as not smaller than three to one; and judging by this rule, it appears and is believed to be the fact, that very few of the whole class remained unscathed. Of the younger classes, my information is not sufficiently complete to justify the giving a list; but enough is ascertained to make it certain that the sacrifice of life among them was in very nearly the same proportion as among the Seniors. As a matter of undying interest to the people of my own State, and significant enough to those of others, I present this record of the sons of her University.” — Cornelia Phillips Spencer, 1866
