James Small was born in 1844. He enlisted on 9/16/1861 at Charlestown, VA as a Private in Company A of the 2nd Virginia Infantry. He was listed as a POW on July 28, 1863; confined at Fort Delaware by July 1863; exchanged 3/10/1864; paroled 4/18/1865 Charlestown, VA.

The 2nd Virginia fought at many famous battles throughout the conflict. In addition to First Manassas, it fought at Second Manassas (after First Kernstown and Jackson's Valley Campaign and with the Army of Northern Virginia from the Seven Days' Battles to Cold Harbor). It reported 90 casualties at First Kernstown, 25 at Cross Keys and Port Republic, 27 at Gaines' Mill, and 77 at Second Manassas. However, during part of the Maryland Campaign of 1863, it was detached to Martinsburg as provost guards. The regiment lost 2 killed and 19 wounded at Fredericksburg, had 8 killed and 58 wounded at Chancellorsville, and had about eight percent of the 333 men engaged at Gettysburg disabled. Later, the unit was involved in Jubal Early's operations in the Shenandoah Valley and finally surrendered at the end at Appomattox Court House on April 9, 1865, with 9 officers and 62 men.

From the William Turner collection.  [jet] [ph:L]
