Southern Historical Society Papers, Volume 27. (ed. Reverend J. William Jones), How General A. P. Hill met his fate. (search)
ey asked me if a man had been killed near there. I told them I had killed an officer in the swamp. They went off in that direction. I had no suspicions at the time, but afterward thought this was a Confederate ruse to get the body of the man I had just killed. Comrade Wolford and myself shortly after this joined our regiment, and nothing more was thought of the affair until summoned to brigade and corps headquarters to answer questions. After I had given a statement of the affair, General Wright asked me if I knew whom I had killed. I told him that I did not. He said: You have killed General A. P. Hill, of the Confederate Army. All this occurred on the morning after the rebel works had been carried, on the 2d of April, 1865. John W. Mauk. Commenting on Mauk's statement as to what occurred after Sergeant Tucker rode away, the writer of the original article, Mr. Matthews, says: As to the stratagem by which General Hill's body was recovered and carried back to Peters

Address of Hon. T. S. Garnett Upon presenting the portrait of Hon. R. M. T. Hunter, To the circuit Court of Essex county, at Tappahannock, Va., June 20, 1898. Judge Wright, and Ladies and Gentlemen: In response to your kind invitation, I am here to present to the Circuit Court of Essex county, the portrait of the Honorable Robert Mercer Taliaferro Hunter. Before venturing upon the performance of this honorable duty, I cannot refrain from expressing my gratitude to you for the great and good work you have so wisely conceived and so devotedly executed throughout your judicial circuit, in rescuing from dull forgetfulness the memories of the past, and from oblivion the names and features of so many of our Tidewater Virginians who made that past forever memorable. All honor to you, sir, for this noble work, and Heaven's blessings upon your unselfish and patriotic labors. This portrait of Mr. Hunter, the gift of his great-niece, is a faithful likeness of that great

Muscoe Russell Hunter Garnett was the son of James Mercer Garnett, Jr., who was the son of James Mercer Garnett, of Elmwood, and Maria Hunter, sister of Honorable R. M. T. Hunter. His father was educated at Princeton College and devoted himself to the law, but died at too early an age to be remembered by any but his immediate family, by whom he was esteemed as a man of great intellectual force. His son, Muscoe, was born July 25, 1821, and was educated at the Elmwood School, established there by his grandfather. He entered the University of Virginia at the opening of the session of 1838-39, and graduated that session in Latin, Greek, French, German and Mathematics.

f the Tarheel's explanation of the confidence of Jackson's soldiers, that they were never scared on going into a fight under him, because they always knew that, though the enemy had a bigger army, Jackson would have more men that at the place where the real fighting was to be. Though not entirely germane to our present subject, but as a side light illustrating the situation and helping to form opinion on the questions stated above, the following extract may be taken from the report of General Wright, commanding the Sixth Federal corps. Describing the battle of Sailor's Creek, he says (p. 906): The first and third divisions charged the enemy's position, carrying it handsomely, except at a point on our right of the road crossing the creek, where a column, said to be composed of the Marine brigade and other troops which had held the lines of Richmond previous to the evacuation, made a countercharge upon that part of our lines in their front. I was never more astonished. These troops

Gordon, grandsons of Dr. Austin Brockenbrough and Frances Blake, his wife, and grandnephews of the Judge; B. Blake Minor, Jr., M. D., and Benjamin Blake Minor, Sr., a native of Tappahannock.

The records of Richmond county show that the Brockenbroughs were there, from England, prior to 1701; and some of them were in Essex also at a Very early date. Dr. John Brockenbrough, of Tappahannock, a surgeon in the Virginia navy during the Revolution, and long a justice of Essex, and Sarah Roane, his wife, were the parents of William, who was born July 10, 1778. His father gave him good scholastic opportunities, which he very creditably improved, and then adopted the profes
