Southern Historical Society Papers, Volume 16. (ed. Reverend J. William Jones), Roll of the Rockbridge Battery of artillery, April 10, 1865. (search)
Roll of the Rockbridge Battery of artillery, April 10, 1865. This roll was furnished by Private Calvin Wilson, of the battery, who writes: It was copied by me from the orderly sergeant's book at Appomattox Courthouse at the time of the surrender. We left Richmond with two guns; the two guns belonging to the first section having been, by order of General R. E. Lee, turned over to the Otey Battery which relieved us on the north side of James river near Laurel Hill Church. Two other guns of an improved style were to be furnished us from the Tredegar Iron Works. Somewhere between Cumberland Church and Appomattox Courthouse, a 3-inch rifled gun, which had been spiked and abandoned during a dash of Federal cavalry, was picked up by the first section of our battery and carried on to the surrender, the second section with Law's Alabama brigade having been detailed as a rear guard for our army. Captain A. Graham. Present. First Lieutenant Wm. Brown. Captured at Gettysb
