Of all the things that we can do as “living historians”, especially those of us who are also “descendants”, to honor those brave men who sacrificed so much–in many cases, their lives, is of the utmost importance…on this day, 3 June, 1864, while engaging the enemy at a place called Bethesda Church, as part of the Battle of Cold Harbor, many lives were lost in a very short period of time–one of those lives belonged to 2nd Lieutenant Jefferson Truitt…After being credited with saving the Regimental Colors at Malvern Hill, Lt. Truitt was killed serving his country, defending our Union. It is “only fitting and proper” that we honor him, and all those that fell that day. Jefferson Truitt is buried in the Cold Harbor National Cemetery.

“DAVID P. TRUITT-
AT ATTENTION ONCE AGAIN”

 

 

 

In honoring Corporal David P. Truitt, on a peaceful, sunny Saturday morning, eleven members of our Company gathered at his final resting place, Appleby Manor Cemetery, to reset his headstone, which after so many years, had settled severely into the earth…with so many “volunteers”, in a very short time the marker was once again standing straight and tall, as it should be, in honor of another of Colonel Black’s fine soldiers.
