Confederate General William Extra Billy Smith book trailer
William Extra Billy Smith, the oldest and one of the most controversial Confederate generals on the field at Gettysburg, was also one of the most colorful and charismatic characters of the Civil War and the antebellum Old South. Despite a life full of drama, politics, and adventure, until now very few books have been written on Smith since a biased account in the 19th century by his brother-in-law. Scott L. Mingus Sr. has ably filled this historical void with Confederate General William Extra Billy Smith: From Virginia's Statehouse to Gettysburg Scapegoat.
Known nationally as Extra Billy because of his prewar penchant for finding loopholes in government postal contracts to gain extra money for his stagecoach lines, Smith served as Virginia's governor during both the War with Mexico and the Civil War, served five terms in the U.S. Congress, and was one of Virginia's leading spokesmen for slavery and States' Rights. Extra Billy's extra-long speeches and wry sense of humor were legendary among his peers. A lawyer during the heady Gold Rush days, Smith made a fortune in California and, like his income earned from stagecoaches, quickly lost it.
Despite his advanced age Smith took the field and fought well at First Manassas, was wounded at Seven Pines and again at Sharpsburg, and marched with Lee's Army of Northern Virginia into Pennsylvania. There, on the first day at Gettysburg, Smith's frantic messages about a possible Union flanking attack remain a matter of controversy to this day. Did his aging eyes see distant fence-lines that he interpreted as approaching enemy soldiers—mere phantoms of his imagination?—or did his prompt action stave off a looming Confederate disaster? What we do know is that his calls for support diverted limited Confederate manpower away from attacks against Cemetery Hill and Culp's Hill that might have turned the tide of Southern fortunes in Pennsylvania.
Mingus's biography draws upon a wide array of newspapers, diaries, letters, and other firsthand accounts to paint a broad, deep, and colorful portrait of one of the South's most interesting leaders and devoted sons. Complete with original maps and photos, Extra Billy Smith will satisfy anyone who loves politics, war, and a story well told.
Raynors' HCA Lot 396 Robert E Lee Gettysburg Inkwell to be sold April 21, 2011
Ink Bottle with manuscript paper label identification in period ink, Ink bottle from which Genl Lee wrote order to retreat from Gettysburg. The bottle is dark blue, 9 circumference, 2 tall, manufactured by Harrison's Columbian Ink. The Provenance: A 1922 typed and signed statement is provided by George H. Stuart, Jr. His father, George H. Stuart who founded the Philadelphia YMCA in 1854; then was Chairman of the United States Christian Commission (organized by YMCAs to recruit and support Union troops). The statement is headed, INK BOTTLE INTO WHICH ROBERT E. LEE COMMANDING THE ARMY OF NORTHERN VIRGINIA DIPPED HIS PEN JULY 3, 1863 TO SIGN THE ORDER FOR THE RETREAT FROM GETTYSBURG. Conyinues in part, I, George H. Stuart, Jr ... son of the late George H. Stuart, ... do hereby state and declare that the attached glass bottle ... was obtained by him immediately after the battle of Gettysburg from the owner ... of the house on Chambersburg Road, used by General Robert E. Lee ... as his headquarters ... I further state and declare that on several occasions my Father stated to me that he obtained this ink bottle soon after his arrival at Gettysburg July 4th 1863, to supervise the work of the delegates of the United States Christian Commission on that battlefield, and that upon visiting the above mentioned house, the owner or tenant, a women whose name I am now unable to recall, pointed out the table around which General Lee and some Generals were gathered during the battle, stating that the ink bottle above described was the bottle into which General Lee dipped his pen to sign the order for the retreat of the Army of Northern Virginia from Gettysburg ...The Thompson House: At the time of the battle, the house was the dwelling place of Mrs. Mary Thompson, who was known by the residents of Gettysburg simply as the Widow Thompson. She was not excited about having her house occupied by a Rebel, but she ...testifies that the gentlemanly deportment of General Lee whilst in her house, but complains bitterly of the robbery and general destruction of her goods by some of his attendants. In the Spring of 1922 the house was opened to the public as the Lee Museum by Mr. C. F. Daley who began displaying artifacts and relics found on the battlefield and brought back to town by visiting veterans. Since that time, the museum has been in continuous operation and remains one of the oldest museums in Gettysburg.The Retreat: Headquarters Army Of Northern Virginia, July 4, 1863.
