Thornton Stringfellow Brown - Private   
by P. Moynahan: Thornton Stringfellow Brown was a young man when he enlisted in April 1861. The state of Virginia seceded on 17 April and Thornton and six of his brothers wasted no time in enlisting in Stevensburg, VA on 25 April. He joined the 7th Virginia Volunteer Infantry, Company E. They were very proud of the name 'Volunteer' ---they were not Bounty men or Conscripts! He received more training and settling in to the military way of life at Camp Wigfall, Manassas. In July, the Company was stationed along Bull Run at Blackburn's Ford where the first action of what was later to be called First Bull Run bythe Federals and First Manassas by the Confederacy. Just to the north of Blackburn's Ford, Generals Johnston, Jackson and Beauregard needed help in repulsing the Federals and so called the 7th Virginia to assist them in repulsing the Federals back to Centerville and Washington. The rest of the year was spent in guard duties while both armies regrouped. Pvt. Brown was with General A. P. Hill on what is known as the Peninsular Campaign, Yorktown, Williamsburg, Seven PInes, Frazier's Farm and Second Manassas. When they marched north to Maryland and wound up at the little town called Sharpsburg, or as the Federals named it, Antietam Creek Company E, 7th Virginia Infantry, was on the right flank of Lee's Army and held up the Federal General Burnside long enough for General A. AP. Hilll to make in from Harper's Ferry in time to push the Federals back. Lee had accomplished his purpose, or at least oneof them, by drawing back the Federal penetration to Richomond, VA (Sept. 1862). The 7th Virginia Infantry spent the winter of 1862-63 in southern Virginia and North Carolina around New Bern, for one place. That summer they marched orth again and wound up in a small town called Gettysburg. Thornton was part of Pickett's Charge. He and one brother were wounded. Thornton was captured, spent time in Fort McHenry, MD, Fort Delawareon Pea Patch Island where the ground was only about one foot below the surfact of the surrouding bay. (Dikes held back the water but you can imagine that in winter with the wind blowing and high tide, it was not a fun palce to be.) Thornton was transferred to Point Lookout prisoner or warcamp in MD. In November and December of 1863 and January 6, 1864, he was in the hospital, Hammong Hospital. Upon his release from the hospital he was returned to the prisoner of war compound where he remained until March 1864 when he ws exchanged. We hope he was able to come home for a while. His home was just about one half mile in the woods. He went back to the army. Private Brown was no Jckson, no Lee, no Johnston---just a common, everyday soldier. He went back, He knew the food was not all that plentiful, In fact, while in the prisoner of war camp, hs daily rations consisted of 8 ounces of bread, one slice of fatback and one pint of bean soup, if there were any beans. The rations in normal camp life were not all that much better. He went back to Petersburg where the 7th was stationed on Howlett Line, guarding the railroad into Richmond, holding back Benjamin Butler from cutting the line. The 7th was down to about 700 men this time. In April 1865, when Lee broke the Federal stranglehold and tried to link up with Johnston or Kirby Smeith, Thornton was again captured at Saylor's Creek, VA. The 7th was down to about 200 men at this time. (Due to wounding, killed, missing in action and desertions.) Thornton was returned to Point Lookout where he spent threee more months as a prisoner of war. In July 1865, he took the oath of allegience and returned to his home in Lignum to his wife and children. Her had been 25 with two children and an exoectant wife when he joined during the war. His third child had been born, a boy who Thornton named after his company commander, John Taylor. The legend has it that not only did his wife keep the homefires burning while Thornton was away but that she did it with the aid of a shotgun. One Federal captain told her that if all the women in the south were as mean as she was, the South would have won the war. Thornton was a good man, a good husband, a good father, a good Virginian and a good American.
