Mount Jackson, Virginia Historical Events



1862
Sgt. George Washington Alexander
My great grandpa was Sgt. George Washington ALEXANDER. He was in Capt. Strother H. BOWEN'S Company, (Clarke Rifleman), 2 Regiment Virginia Infantry. He enlisted when he was 17 years old in 1861. He appears on a register of sick and Wounded at C. S. A. Hospital, Mt. Jackson, Virginia. He was admitted June 1, 1862. He was moved very quickly to C. S. A. General Hospital, Charlottesville, Virginia on June 8, 1862. He was then listed as a POW in 1864, and was captured by General Sheridan and sent to Washington, D.C., and Fort Delaware, Del., during the month of August 1864. He was released on June 14, 1865. He married my great grandma, Caroline (WEST) Dixon on 15 Oct. 1894. He died in Iowa on 10 Sept 1911. It just amazes me on how he lived. I'm not so much proud as to what he did, but how he fought for his own life until the end. Submitted by his Great Grand-daughter, S. Pratt
