a history of that famous company, as I am a native of Brunswick county, Va., and witnessed the departure of the company to war June 3, 1861.
The company was organized at Edmond's Store, Va., by Mr. Joseph Jones, who was elected captain.
Dr. Thomas Wynn was elected first-lieutenant, and John Maddox second-lieutenant.
The company was composed of the best young men of the county, and on the day for their departure a great crowd assembled at Trotter's Store, hundreds of ladies being present.
A lovely flag was presented the company by the ladies of Brunswick, which was accepted by Captain Jones in a neat speech.
Captain Jones was soon promoted for gallant service in the Lost Cause to lieutenant-colonel, and Dr. Wynn was promoted to the captaincy of the company.
He served a short time and resigned, and John Maddox was elected captain.
At the battle of Nottoway river, between Petersburg and Weldon, Colonel Jones was mortally wounded, and Captain Maddox also received his death wound
