A BIT OF LOCAL HISTORY.
The Fight at Sewall's Point Described By an
The First Battle in Virginia?The Battle of Sewall's Point,
Fought on May 19th, 1861?First Shot Fired by the Nor?
folk Juniors?The Georgian Flag Hoisted by Major Win.
E. Taylor, of Norfolk.
The battle of Sewall's Point is re?
called to memory by the finding in the
intrenchments there of hundreds of old
cannon balls and shells, the old powder
magazine) and a broken cannon.
THE FIRST BATTLE IN VIRGINIA.
In Burton's history of Norfolk we
find this memorable engagement de?
scribed as follows: "The 'Battle of
Sewall's Point' (called a 6aff/c at that
lime), was fought on the 19th of May,
1861, and we here give some extracts
from a letter written about that en?
gagement by a member of the Norfolk
Eight Artillery Blues:
"At 11 o'clock a. m., Sunday, the 1'Jth
of May, the detachment Of N. L. A.
Blues, stationed at thla post, (Boush's
Bluft) under Lieut. Thomas >jC:ish, Jr.,
and a detachment of Juniors, under
Bleut, liolmes, received orders to
march ilmmediately to Sewall's Point
and report there for duty. Upon our
arrival we found the Columbus (Ga.)
Light Guard, under Captain Colqult,
and the Wood la Hilles, just from Ocean
View, under Capt. Wm. Lamb. Hen.
Gwynn, with his Aid, Major Wm. E.
Taylor, was on the ground giving or?
ders. At 4 o'clock p. m. one gun was
mounted on its carriage, but not fas?
ti led. Two others al that hour were
burled In I he sand. By il o'clock they
also were mounted, and one of them
fastened. While the work of arrang?
ing the guns for action was hastily but
steadily progressing, a shot came
Whizzing from a U. S. Government
steamer, and struck the battery,
throwing the turf some distance in the
"All the Battery was in confusion,
but immediate preparation was made
to return the lire with the two 32
pounders and two rilled cannon
brought and manned by the YVoodis
Hilles. Captain Colquitt being in com?
mand of the forces at this time, called
for a Virginian to hoist the Georgian
Hag (that being on the spot) and Ma?
jor Win. E. Taylor, of Norfolk, mount?
ed the ramparts and unfurled it to the
breeze in defiance of the enemy, who
had Initiated the battle. Orders were
then given to open lire, and the first
gun was discharged by the detachment
of Juniors, Thad. Gray having com?
mand of the gun. The Georgians, who
hatl worked manfully in mounting the
guns (in conjunction with tlie Juniors,
Blues and Hilles) took charge Of the
other two and fought bravely during
the whole engagement.
"The Bines were then ordered back
to Boush's Bluff, from whence they
came, to repel any land attack that
might be made by troops from Old
The letter continues: "Every man
acted the true soldier, and though our
forces only numbered 250 men, every
one stood at his post, whether in the
battery or out of It, ready to answer
the call of his commanding officer.
Those. present on that occasion will
scarcely ever forget the sound of o
bomb or the whistle of a hall, and
though they cracked the trees and
ploughed the ground around us, 'no?
body was hurt,' and 'every one remain?
ed to tell the tale' of the first battle in
this State In defence of our liberties.
"Never was a battery worse prepar?
ed for such an engagement. The guns
were not In order; not a sight had been
placed on them, nor was there time
even to think of pulling them on, had
they been In place, consequently the
lire was at random, and very few shots
were effective. it Is enough for our
friends to know that we did all we
could under such circumstances, and
we are sure it will be satisfactory to
them. The soldiers suffered greatly
during the tight on account of the mln
and wind, especially those on guard."
Before day on the morning of May
20th. Sewall's Point was again rein?
forced by the Blues and a portion of
the Georgia Regiment from the CrOSS
Hoads. a Louisiana Regiment, a Pe?
tersburg Battalion and the Richmond
Grays, which were sent from Norfolk,
"but the Ltncolnltes did not renew Hie
attack again until the 21st. when they
made several ineffectual attempts to
silence our batteries."
A Georgia gentleman, lipon return?
ing lo Norfolk after the light at Sew?
all's Point, wrote as follows to a
"Norfolk. May 21. 1S61.
"The MonticcllO, now the Star, lay
with her broadside in the battery
about three-quarters of a mile off. Our
two 32-pounders had been mounted,
ami two rilled cannon peeped through
their port-holes; and while the third
gun was being 'fixed up,' whlz-z-z-z
came a shell and bursted on our bat?
tery near Private Oliver Cleveland,
j who had gone out in front of one of
I our guns to shovel away sand. ?'ap
tnin Colqillt (of Georgin, and after?
wards Gen, Colqult) in command of
the fores (consisting of parts of sev-1
oral Virginia companies and the <"itv
Light Guard, of Georgia), ordered the
men to their post-;, and In a few mo?
ments the welkin rang with the boom?
ing of our guns. The Montlcollo fired
rapidly and bravely, but the most of
her shots were wild. Some of them,
however, were well directed, bursting
in our embrasure-, over our heads, and
all around us. VVc barn thai she lias
endeavored to make the Impression
that she pased the ordeal of our iron
hail without Injury; but she Is slightly
mistaken. Five holes are In her. The
very best Indication of which Is her
dreadful limping as she turned her
stern to our fire, and hitched on a
tug. which carried her off. We have
no disposition to deal in falsehoods,
and we tell the Monticcllo that some of
her shots were well nlmed, and furth?
ermore, that she required heavy cork?
ing to save sinking, and that she must
have lost many of her men. We h? ir
but six sire lost, but when the truth
comes, it will be double that number.
If the Montdccllo is not crippled, we
cordially invite her back to her old
stand, near the buoy in front of our
little sand bank."
"I wish to make mention of the
brave and gallant bearing of Tha 1.
Gray, of one of the Vhglnin companies
(the Norfolk Juniors), during the en?
gagement of Sunday, the 19th. In his
bare skin to the waist, he worked like
a Trojan?cool and self possessed, tin
moved by the enemy's fire, he worked
at his Bun like man and a brave sol
dier. Some of the men acted very con?
spicuous parts in the engagement, and
deserve special notice. Sergeant I.ar
In. Privates Mayo and Porter. In the
hottest or the tight, took their spades
and walked out in full view of the ene?
my, and at the most exposed points,
and shoveled away sand which lay in
front of twoi of the guns, obstructing
the effect of thejr lire, and rendering
them useless. Mr. J. Benlan Oliver,
one of the most esteemed citizens of
Georgia, was once buried in sand by
the bursting of a shell in the embra?
sure of the gun at which In' was work?
ing. Before the smoke and dust had
Cleared away, be was at his post un?
moved and undaunted. Inexperienced
in military life, lie hits won rich lau?
rels in this, the tlrst battle on Virginia
soil. A braver and truer spirit never
marched to meet an enemy. Lieut.
Mnflit, who commanded one of the
guns, acted with a degree of bravery
and coolness that would have done
credit to an older and more experi?
''Captain Lamb well sustained the
reputation of Virginia'? blood and bra?
very. Captain Co.lqtilt, of the I'ily
Light Guards, commanding, acted (with
the most remarkable degree of self
posseslon, wisdom and bravery, assist?
ing under the thick hail of shell and
shot In planting the dag of Georgia up
, on the ramparts?the beautiful Hag
'presented to the <'ity Light Guards by
Miss Helen Ingraham, of Columbus,
one of he most beautiful and lovely
daughters of Georgia. Well may she
feel proud of that beautiful banner; for
it waived in triumph at the second
battle of the Confederate States.
Major Taylor mounted the ramparts
and waved it high In the air as the
j Monticello moved off."
