Southern Historical Society Papers, Volume 8. (ed. Reverend J. William Jones), Lieutenant Charlie Pierce's daring attempts to escape from Johnson's Island. (search)
ategy, the energy and the patience with which he prosecuted them. So confident was his comrades that he had been successful in this last attempt, that they prepared his bunk to lead the sentinel to believe that he was still there, and were ready to vouch for his sickness at roll-call the following morning. But vain hope, when roll-call came, the intrepid Pierce was there to answer for himself, and there he remained until paroled with the others at the close of the war. Arriving at his home in New Orleans, like all true soldiers, he accepted the situation as best he could, and pursued the even tenor of his way. But the gallant spirit that could never bend to the enemy had to succumb to the yellow monster in 1867, at the age of twenty-six years, and his remains now rest, with the dust of many of his former comrades, in Greenwood Cemetery. The brilliant record of Hays' brigade will show no name more fit to adorn the niche of fame than that of Lieutenant Charles Hatch Pierce.
