Southern Historical Society Papers, Volume 9. (ed. Reverend J. William Jones), The killing of Lieutenant Meigs, of General Sheridan's staff-proof that it was done in fair combat. (search)
I was told by the prisoner whom we captured that it was Lieutenant Meigs, of General Sheridan's staff. My wound was so severe that I could not be moved from the first place of safety taken for six weeks, and did not return to the service for three or four months--the course of the ball having been diverted by a bone, I was told by my surgeon, alone saved my life. (Signed,) G. W. Martin. October 6th, 1865. Personally appeared before me, a justice of the peace, for the county of Fauquier, and State of Virginia, G. W. Martin, whose name is signed above, and made oath that the above statement is true. J. G. Beckham, J. P. Statement of Captain Payne. G. W. Martin was an enlisted man in my company during the whole period of the war. The high character he always bore, and for which my knowledge of him enables me to vouch, together with the corroborating account of the two men who were with him, and which I have heard from them, assures me of the truth of his statement.

For God's sake, charge! when the fatal bullet stopped the brilliant career of this splendid soldier. A native of Fauquier county, and a gentleman of high descent and stainless character, Turner Ashby had entered the service at the first sound of the bugle, and when asked at Harper's Ferry What flag are you going to fight under, the Palmetto, or what? he produced a Virginia flag and said Here is the flag I intend to fight under.

tained that I had ninety-nine regiments of infantry and thirty-six of cavalry, I defy the production of any such record. If such record exists, then it shows at least twenty-five more regiments of infantry, and twelve of cavalry, than I had. It is possible that men claiming to belong to so many regiments, may have been captured, as I afterward ascertained that there were a very large number of deserters from our army who had taken refuge in the mountains between the counties of Loudoun and Fauquier, and the Valley, who claimed to belong to Mosby's command whenever questioned by any of our officers.

It is a little singular that writers on the other side will persist in estimating our numbers upon the crude conjecture
