Company G
James N. Marshall - Private   
James N. Marshall, my 3 great grandfather,enlisted on August 22, 1863 in Cumberland County, Virginia. Major Lewellen completed the enlistment and it was for the duration of the war. Records at the N.A.R.A. show that he was a member of Pickett's Divison, although I have not found his name on any regimental roster from the division. On November 10, 1863 he was transferred to Company G, 1st Regiment of Engineer Troops by Adjutant and Inspector General Special Order No. 267.

James was present for duty during Dahlgren's doomed attack on Richmond, Cold Harbor, siege operations before Petersburg and the retreat towards Appomattox. The 1st Engineers were deployed to repair the double bridges during the Battle of Sailor's Creek and were later detailed to destroy the High Bridge. James' Company G was ordered to rig the High Bridge and lesser wagon bridge for demolition. The High Bridge trestles did go up when lit within ear shot of advancing Union troops, but the wagon bridge did not catch very quickly. It was saved by Union Infantry, green wood and a high river surface. Troops literally leaned over and scooped water out of the Appomattox River.

The Engineers were deployed on the left of Gordon's line as he tried to punch out of Appomattox Courthouse on April 9th. As flags of truce hurried by, troops from both sides went back to their respective lines to await news from the generals. The 1st regiment placed a cordon of troops around Lee's makeshift headquarters under an apple tree. James received his parole with the rest of the regiment on Tuesday evening and went home.
