  • "His father, a Confederate soldier in the Civil War, was killed at the battle of Gettysburg, and an obituary for Harry Golden three decades later stated that, as a teenager, Harry enlisted in the 'Iberia Grays' in 1863 and served for the remainder of the war. There are no records of any Confederate unit known as the 'Iberia Grays'; perhaps the unit in question was the Iberville Greys, but there is no record of Golden serving in that unit or any other, so his Confederate record remains something of a mystery."
