Southern Historical Society Papers, Volume 16. (ed. Reverend J. William Jones), Notice of Chew's Battery, (search)
Notice of Chew's Battery, Fort Yates, Dak., February 17th, 1887. Editor Southern Historical Society Papers: Sir—Having read much of your valuable history of the war, giving battles, heroic charges and repulses by different commands, I have never seen mentioned one battery, viz.: it was organized in Charlestown, Jefferson county, Virginia, in the early part of 1861, by Captain John Chew, with James W. Thompson as First Lieutenant, Tuck Carter Second Lieutenant, and John J. Williams Third Lieutenant, and was assigned to Ashby's (afterwards known as Rosser's) brigade, as a light battery. After the battle of New Hope, Virginia, Lieutenant Thompy and used with good effect. It is the only time during the war that I ever heard of a battery charging and taking a battery. It was a glorious charge and, in my opinion, worthy of publication. Very respectfully, your obedient servant, Lewis Brady, Late Private Chew's Battery, Breathed's Battalion, Stuart's Horse Artillery

ade until 11 o'clock that night, at which time the fighting had ceased. Lastly, the Index denies that Fort Gregg was defended by any part of Wilcox's command, and says: The infantry garrison at Fort Gregg was composed entirely of members of the Mississippi brigade of Harris, formerly Posey's. This assertion is not true. The true defenders of Fort Gregg were a part of Lane's North Carolina brigade, Walker's supernumerary artillerists of A. P. Hill's corps, armed as infantry, and a part of Chew's Maryland battery. Harris's brigade and a few pieces of artillery occupied Fort Alexander, which was to the rear of Fort Gregg and higher up the Appomattox; and that fort was evacuated, the infantry and artillery retiring to the inner line of works, before Fort Gregg was attacked in force. I have letters from Lieutenants Snow, Craige, Howard, and Rigler, of my brigade, who were in Fort Gregg when it fell; and these officers estimate the number of Harris's brigade in that fort at not more t

. His whole-souled array of good deeds surrounded him as a wall, and who among us but dwarf and dwindle into insignificance alongside of his many acts of kindness showered on this community. Some envious people may wag their little tongues out, they do not hurt him with their paltry small talk. The monument fund stands as follows: Colonel William R. Lyman, New Orleans, $50; Pem. Thomson, Summit Point, $50; Reuben Wonder, Shenandoah county, $5; Lieutenant Milton Rouss, Kabletown, $25; John Chew, Charleston, $5; Colonel Dulaney, Fauquier county, $10; Battery Boy, Winchester, $5; John Ambler, Lynchburg, $25; C. B. Rouss, New York City, $100; Thomas Timberlake, $1; John Adams, $2. The monument will be made here, and it is to be hoped that at the unveiling the old brigade and battery will be brought together in a reunion that will be one of the greatest tributes we have had since the gallant Ashbys were brought here, and that our people and veterans from other branches of the serv
