For anyone interested in this regiment, I recently found a book online titled "Historical Sketches of the Seventh Regiment North Carolina Troops, 1861-'65". I have never come across it in a library or even seen mention of it in researching my Shinn family in the War, and there's some terrific information inside. It's available at http://www.nccivilwar150.com/history/search-resources.htm
. If you can't find it there, I'd be happy to email you my copy.
