Benjamin Shackelford was born on November 10, 1819. He served as an officer in the volunteer militia of Virginia from Fauquier County. On April 22, 1861 he went with his company into the 17th Virginia Infantry and was promoted from 1st lieutenant to captain on June 3, 1861. He was wounded at Blackburn’s Ford on July 18, 1861. He resigned on February 20, 1862 and took a seat in the Virginia House of Delegates. He held that position until Lee’s surrender.

Shackelford died on May 18, 1870 and is buried in Warrenton Cemetery, Warrenton, Virginia

A short biographical entry in “ENCYCLOPEDIA OF VIRGINIA BIOGRAPHY” published in 1915 says of him;

“Benjamin Howard Shackelford was a noted member of the Warrenton bar, and during the Civil War became captain of the Warrenton Rifles, 14th (should read 17th) Virginia Infantry, Confederate Army. He was a brilliant man of fine physique.”  [ad]
