Eli Daughtrey - Private   
Eli [pronounced E-ley] Daughtrey enlisted in Co K, 41st Va. Infantry, CSA, the South Quay Guards of William (Billy) Mahone's Brigade, in March 15, 1862 at Sewell's Point. His pension application records that he entered service in the 'Summer, 1861' at Smithfield, Virginia and 'later joined Co. K stationed in Norfolk', Virginia. While in Norfolk, he witnessed the famous Battle of the Ironclads, CSS Virginia and USS Monitor, on March 9, 1862.
He served in the Army of Northern Virgina throughout the war and was wounded at Spotsylvania Court House. The fighting around Spotsylvania was one of the bloodiest struggles of the war, lasting from the morning of the 9th until the night of the 12th of May 1864. Here Eli Daughtrey was shot in the hip and carried from the field of battle. Sent to Richmond's Chimborazo Hospital, the wound quickly healed, but he was lame and unfit for field service. The head surgeon had him to assist in caring for the wounded. His work was well done and he soon so won the doctor's confidence that he was made superintendent of the gangrene hospital unit. He served in this work until fully recovered and then joined his command in the defense of Petersburg. It was here that Mahone's men rendered gallant service in the defense of the city and won honor by holding the broken line at the Crater, where they drove the enemy with great confusion and loss back to the protection of his own works. The fight against overwhelming odds could not be kept up, however brave men might be. Petersburg and Richmond were evacuated. Lee moved west in a futile effort to join forces with those of General Johnston, who commanded the western army. This movement ended in the surrender of Lee to Grant at Appomattox Courthouse April 9th 1865.

When Richmond was evacuated Eli Daughtrey was on the picket line in hailing distance of the Federal pickets. His first news of Lee's retreat came form the Federal picket who told him it was time for him to go as 'Uncle Robert' was gone. This explained why the men on picket duty had not been relieved at the usual time. When the retreat was well under way, officers relieved these pickets and took them on a hasty march to join their commands.

Eli Daughtrey served the confederacy four years, engaged in many battles, endured much hardship, and was one of the few thousand men of Lee's veterans able to bear arms till the surrender and parole at Appomattox. He was once severely wounded and suffered a slight wound when Captain Hunter was killed on April 7, 1865 at Cumberland Church, Va. Captain Hunter had urged him to accept the rank of sergeant and get in line for promotion, but he preferred to serve in the ranks as a private. After the surrender, he - as did other men in the tattered gray - trudged the many weary miles that led to home and work in rebuilding the ruined fortress of the South.
The service record above was compiled by Eli's grand daughter, Allie Beale Daughtrey Bowler, who took notes directly from personal interviews with her grand father about his service during the Civil War.
