    Fallen Heroes of the Lost Cause

    Confederate Cartes-de-Visite: John Pelham and John Pegram. Two (2) cartes including John Pelham (1838-1863) by E & H.T. Anthony, New York; and an unmarked John Pegram (1832-1865). John Pelham (1838-1863) resigned from West Point just weeks before graduation to join the Confederacy. The "Gallant Pelham" helped revolutionize the use of light artillery as a mobile arm of cavalry. Stonewall Jackson commented that "It is really extraordinary to find such nerve and genius in a mere boy. With a Pelham on each flank I believe I could whip the world." Pelham was killed while participating in a cavalry charge at Kelly's Ford, Virginia on March 17, 1863. He was 24 years old. Pegram served under Generals Beauregard, Braxton Bragg and Jubal Early. He fought at Murfreesboro, Chickamauga (leading a division of Forrest's corps), the Wilderness (wounded), the Shenandoah Valley and Hatcher's Run, where he was fatally shot on February 6, 1865. From the collection of Dr. Michael Krane.
