Stories

Daniel Stuart was my Great Grand Uncle. The youngest of two sons whom followed his father and brother to serve in the Confederate States Army. His father - My Great Great Grandfather was Anderson Alley who served in the state militia under the Montgomery Home Guard while Daniel joined the same field group as his brother Nathan Ratcliff Alley. When he joined he was searching for his brother Nathan whom the family had stopped receiving communication from. Daniel's unit was to remain two weeks out behind the movements of Nathans group. While they fought in many of the same battles together Daniel was never able to locate or see his brother. Nathan was killed in the Battle of Seven Pines and is buried in a mass grave on the original farm where the battle took place. Daniel's unit was called up to replace the unit that Nathan served in as that group was wiped out during the battle. There are no family records to show if the family was ever notified of Nathan's death or location. Daniel's group went on to fight many other battles and eventually wound up at Gettysburg. His unit was to serve under Longstreet and he became one of the casualties of the Battle of Little Round Top on that fateful 3rd of July when the company was obliterated trying to take the hill. He suffered serious wounds during the battle and was taken as prisoner to the Us Army Hospital which was set up inside the town limits of Gettysburg. He later died from his wounds on the 27th of July. He was originally interred there at Gettysburg. When the government later made the Gettysburg Memorial Battleground into a National Cemetery, all confederate soldiers were dis-interred and their remains sent to the Hollywood Cemetery in Richmond, VA. Due to a fire at the records office at Hollywood the exact location of Confederate remains at the cemetery are unknown. But all are interred in the Confederate Section of Hollywood. A memorial military marker was placed in memoran of Daniel at Hollywood by a cousin.
