I read the story years ago but couldn't remember the details, and this showed up in my email notices today. I thought some of you might like to read the story. They also have his canteen and holster in a separate lot.


Originally owned by Private William D. Scott (1843-1864), Company D, 14th Virginia Calvary, Greenbrier Co., Virginia (now West Virginia). When Scott was found wounded on the Clopper family's porch at "The Woodlands" in 1864, he asked, "Can I die on your porch?". Private Scott and the 14th Virginia Cavalry were part of Gen. Jubal Early's raid on Washington, DC in 1864.
