"In this photograph of two men in uniform labeled "D.J. Ward and W.E. Mattocks, New Bern Grays," it is believed the young man on the left is W.E. "Will" Mattocks. The New Bern Grays were an independent military company formed around 1831. They were among several military groups that came into being prior to the Civil War. It appears that the New Bern Grays functioned into the 1880s. They performed ceremonial duties after the Civil War--on the 4th of July and Memorial Day or when dignitaries came to town. They frequently marched with the Silver Cornet Band. The uniforms in the photo may have actually been band uniforms. (Information from Pete Meyer)"
