Southern Historical Society Papers, Volume 36. (ed. Reverend J. William Jones), The last charge from the Danville, Va., Bee, April 20, 1907. (search)
The last charge from the Danville, Va., Bee, April 20, 1907. Of the 14th Virginia Cavalry at Appomattox C. H., Va., April 9, 1865, and its battle flag. Interesting incidents of the retreat. [Captain Bouldin is a well-known member of the Virginia Bar, and has contributed to past volumes of this serial.—Ed.] In his address to the veterans and daughters here Thursday night, Captain Morton, their Inspector General, referred to the battle flag of the 14th Virginia Cavalry, which is among those returned by the Government. Yankee Sgt., J. Donalson, Company L., 4th Pennsylvania Cavalry, who had turned over the old war worn banner to the United States Government, claimed that he captured it on the 9th of April at Appomattox and pinned a paper on the flag to that effect, which was found by Captain Morton, when he took the flags out of their care for exhibition in the Capitol. The interesting local feature about the flag is that it was Captain E. E. Bouldin's regimental flag

Editor of the Charlotte (N. C.) Observer: Following are the recollections of a Confederate States officer of artillery in the Army of Northern Virginia during the retreat from Petersburg to Appomattox, who was an eye witness and participant, written on the anniversary of the surrender of Lee's army, April 9, 1865: This date recalls many sad memories. Eighteen years ago I parted with the men of my old battery with whom I had shared danger, privation and suffering. I saw the cause for which I had risked life, possessions, and separation from wife, children, and family go down in blood and defeat. I saw strong men weep, sullen and bitter men, some hang their heads and curse and swear in their sorrow and humiliation. Oh, the agony of those days! We were hundreds of miles from home and without
