John R Williams - Private   
John R. Williams, a farmer from Bedford Co, VA, enlisted as a private in Co I, 58th Regiment, VA, CSA, on 7/24/1861. John was convicted of desertion and sentenced to die; however his sentence was commuted, and he was allowed to rejoin his unit. John was injured three weeks later during the battle of Petersburg, captured and taken prisoner by the Union Army, and held at Hart's Island, NY for the duration of the war. He was released at the end of the war after signing an oath of allegiance to the United States. John returned to farming; however, eventually had to turn the farm over to his son, as his Civil War injuries rendered him unable to successfully run his farm. He entered the Robert E Lee Confederate Soldiers Home in Richmond, VA, and lived there until his death 4/1/1908. He is buried in the Confederate section of the Hollywood Veterans Cemetery in Richmond,VA; and his great-great grandsons are in the process of having a monument placed on his gravesite.

William Peter Thomas - 4th Corporal   
William Peter Thomas was in the trenches at Petersburg, and participated in the battle of Hatcher's Run. He was wounded March 15, and sent to the hospital at Farmville, and then to the hospital in his hometown, Bedford where his sister, aunt & a cousin were nurses or matrons at the hospital. There is a pdf document that can be downloaded from my website with images of his letters from Petersburg & Farmville, just weeks before the final surrender at Appomattox.
