Southern Historical Society Papers, Volume 19. (ed. Reverend J. William Jones), First burial of General Hill's remains. (search)
jority of his surviving relatives, as we believe it was wholly unnecessary and furthermore, we think it would have been far more desirable had the monument been erected over the grave in the most beautiful God's Acre in his native State, and where he has been sleeping for nearly a quarter of a century. Nevertheless we are grateful to the kind friends who have interested themselves in perpetuating the memory of one who was greatly beloved by all who knew him, and whom the immortal Lee and Jackson honored by their confidence. The Captain Hill mentioned as having been detailed by Colonel Palmer to take charge of the General's remains and to take them to Coalfield for burial was perhaps Captain Frank T. Hill, a nephew and aide-de-camp to the General. He probably turned the body over to his brother Henry, who delivered it to me at Richmond, with instructions as heretofore mentioned. There was no prearranged plan to bury the body in Chesterfield. Very respectfully, G. Powell Hill.

ese excursions into the interior, of which this was the boldest, General Magruder determined to put a stop, and accordingly filled the place after the Yankees left with a few companies of his own troops. In addition to this, he determined to carry the war into the enemy's country, and on Wednesday last Stanard's battery of the Howitzer Battalion was ordered down to the Church, where it was soon joined by a portion of Brown's battery, of the same corps. The North Carolina Regiment, under Colonel Hill, was also there, making in all about 1,100 men, and seven howitzer guns. On Saturday last the first excursion of considerable importance was made. A detachment of 200 infantry and a howitzer gun under Maj. Randolph, and one of 70 infantry, and another howitzer under Maj. Lane, of the N. C., regiment, started different routes to cut off a party which had left Hampton. The party was seen and fired at by Maj. Randolph's detachment, but made such fast time that they escaped. The troop
two minutes every soldier in the encampment was in arms and ready for duty, having previously been instructed to sleep with accoutrements on and arms by the side. The March. In half an hour the North Carolina Regiment, under command of Col. Hill, a brave, col commander, and compatent leader, were ordered with three guns of Major Randolph's Battery, to march toward Hampton, while the Virginia Life Guard, Henrico Southern Guard, and Young Guard, under Lt, Col. Stewart, were ordered to moposing themselves upon the parapet to see, as they said, the enemy's eyes, so as to take aim. In a word, no man on the ground could express how much of the result of our victory is due the Howitzers. Late in the evening the encampment was broken up and we returned to Yorktown. Long live Magruder, Hill, Stewart, and Allan, illustrious leaders in this, our first great battle and glorious victory! while to God thanks be given for His providential care and support. C. P. R., Life Guard.
