CALVIN CROZIER'S CAPTAIN. *
* * * * * * * * * * **
Editor Herald and News: Mrs. M.
- S. Rogers, Calvin Crozier's sister,
sent me the enclosed account of Capt.::
Kendall and requested me to send iI
to you, thinking you would like to
publish it. Calvin Crozier served un
der Capt. Kendall in Gen. Morgan's 1
command. There is lots of Confeder- 1
ate history in this acecunt of Capt.
Kendall's war experince, and it ougbt i
to be preserved.
Mrs. 0. C. Stewart.
Brief mention was made recently 1
of 'the death at Pilot Point of Capt. I
W. A. Kendall, ex-Confederate, pio- I
neer and in no small way a statesman 1
of constructive ability. "Neither in -
war nor peace, religion nor politics," i
his biographer writes, "public or/pri- i
vate life was there any man livng to:
whom he owed an apology for any I
act/of his life."
Th6 Pilot Point Post Signal gives,
axa interesting account of the inter-<
/esting life of Capt. Kendall. It is in I
part here produced for the benefit of I
the many old citizens who numbered I
the deceased among their friends: I
William Addison Kendall was born i
in Taswell county, Va., Aug. 6,11830.
When he was fwo years old his par- i
ents moved to Morgan county, Ky.
Here he was raised and educated, in!
his youth attending and teaching I
school in the winter and working on:
the farm in the summer. At the age
of 23 he was married to Miss Mary 0. C
Daily at West Liberty, Morgon Co., t
Ky. He engaged in merchandising C
and trading until the fall of 1858 with'
his wife and three children, he emi-]
grated in wagon- to Texas, making I
the trip in 42 days, arriving at Wes-.
ton, Collin county, on December 10,'
1858. He remained in Collin county
about one year when he bought land
in Denton county.
On the breaking out of the war he
enlisted as a private soldier in Gano's
squadron of cavalry. Thts command
was intended to serve in Brecken
ridge's division, but being delayed by"
skirmishes, high water and other hin
drances, they failed to reach the com-'
mand in time. The troop was then
attached to General J. H. Morgan's1
command and was consolidated into
the Third Kentucky cavalry. In this:
command Mr. Kendall was advanced
by promotion to the captaincy of his
company and at the surrender of the
principal portion of Morgan's com- 1
mand at Chessire, Ohio, he 'was the .I
ranking officer of his regiment. The
officers were taken to Johnson's Is
land and there held until Morgan,
himself. was captured. He, with one
hundre~d, and seventeen others, was
sent to (the Western Penitentiary,1
ennsylv!ania, where they were con-'
ed in~ cells and treated as felons ex-: 1
t as to labor, for nearly eightt
ontha. Thence they were transfer
ed to. Point Lookout, Maryland, and
from tzhere to Fort Delaware. From
is rison six hundred officers werei
le ed, Captain Kendall among*
,and taken to Morris Island,
outh Carolina. Here they were plac
ed in front of and in direct of the bat
teries of Fort Sumter in retaliation
for alleged cruelties- to Federal pris
oners in Charleston. They were ex
posed to every indignity and priva-.t
tion, being guarded by negroes and* t
put on very short rations. This was
continued until the alleged cause was
removed, when they were taken to<
Pulaski, Georgia. Again in retalia
tion for alleged cruelties to Federal
prisoners at Andersonville, the ra
Stion was cut down to ten ounces of! t
meal and a linted supply of pickles..2
No meat or salt was' allowed them. I
Under this regimen many of .the offi- E
cers sickened and died, but, with
powers of endurance born of despera
tion, Captain Kendall retained his <
health..Determining to escape if pos
sible, he with four others, burrowed I
under the foundation of the fort
through 22-inch brick wails. They a
hoped to be able to get a skiff and a
join the Confederate forces on the <
coast of South Carolina. but being i
observed by the guard were comn- E
pelled to surrender and were return- f
ed to prison. They were stripped,
searched and sent to a dungeon and
given only bread and water for three
days. During this time offers of re- 1
lease were made on condition that <
they would remain north of the Ohio: I
river during the war. The offer was t
indignantly rejected. Then Captain j
Kendall with the survivors of the: <
cruel imprisonment, was sent to Hil- I
ton Head to be exchanged. There
were so many ahead of them, how-. f
ever, awaiting exchange that this' E
party was sent to Fort Delaware to e
await the commissioner's further. 1
pleasure. Here they remained un- I
il the 13th of July. two monhs after (
the surrender of the Confederate t
army. Being released finally he i
made his way to Dallas, Texas. a
