Company D
Jonathan Harvey Bryan - Private   
Jonathan is my 3rd great grandfather. He enlisted as a Private for three years in the Mississippi Infantry on Feb. 22, 1862. On Jan. 10, 1863, he was admitted to the CSA Post Hospital at Dalton, GA for "Anasarca", a severe and generalized form of edema, with subcutaneous tissue swelling throughout the body. A St.Mary's Hospital record shows Jonathan is age 52 and received a follow-up Smallpox vaccine on January 23, 1863, with his prior vaccine having been 9 months earlier. Next, a Dalton, GA Post Hospital record shows he was sent to St. Mary's Hospital in Dalton, GA on Feb. 12, 1863. Records show Jonathan died on Feb. 26, 1863 of "Vulnus Sclopetarium", which is a gunshot wound. Since the record reporting death shows he was admitted on Jan. 10th, I am assuming that he was in the hospital from January 10th through February 26th due to the gunshot would and complications, including the anasarca. Records also show that Jonathan had $19.60 that was turned over to the Quartermaster and that his belongings left at the hospital consisted of money $1.05, knapsack, and 2 pairs of pants.

HEROIC HENRY McPHERSON.

J. H. Strain, who was lieutenant of Company H, 2nd Mississippi Regiment, writes from Tupelo, Miss.: " I have just read with interest the articles of John Purifoy of Montgomery, Ala., on the battle of Gettysburg. In that installment in the April Veteran, although he quotes from Brig. Gen. Joe Davis's report, there is need of correction. From this article one-would get the impression that the 2nd and 42nd Mississippi, under command of General Davis, in that engagement had captured the Federal flag in question. Far from my purpose is it to detract in the least from the achievements of General Davis or the 42nd Mississippi, but, in truth, neither had any part in capturing that flag. The real facts are as follows: While the 2nd Mississippi had driven back the first line of Federals and had halted to reform their lines after the serious trouble of that railroad cut, there, some distance from their front, this stand of colors, apparently alone, stood planted in a pile of fence rails, and the Federals were trying to reform their lines along the line of this flag. Col. J. M. Stone sent out Lieutenant Roberts with four men to bring in that flag. When this squad approached that rail pile, they made a dash, each wishing to get the flag. In that race Lieutenant Roberts, a fine, athletic young man, and more lightly encumbered, neared the rail pile first, and, to the surprise of the squad, the Federal color guard rose up around the colors and killed the lieutenant. In the ensuing contest, the gun of one of Roberts's men failed to fire. Being a big, brave young man, he clubbed his gun and struck at his antagonist, and in doing so he stumbled and fell among the rails; when he recovered, two of the color guard were retreating double-quick with one of Roberts's men a prisoner, while the color bearer was retreating leisurely with the flag. Recapping his gun, he fired on the color bearer and broke his leg. He then rushed forward and wrenched the colors from this unyielding man, and, amid a hail of bullets from the Federal line, he brought in that flag. This man was Henry McPherson, whom we called 'Tobe.' He was my close friend; we ate and slept together, and he described to me fully every detail of this affair, emphasizing the awful apprehension of sudden death when the gun failed to fire. Colonel Stone offered McPherson the lieutenancy created by Roberts's death, which he declined, but accepted a furlough. No braver or better soldier ever shot a gun. He was killed on May 6, 1864, in the Wilderness, Peace to his ashes!"Private McPherson was killed at The Wilderness on 5/6/1864. He appears on a register of appointments, CSA to Ensign & 1st Lt. Date of appointment: 6/6/1864. To take rank: 5/4/1864 (However, Pvt. McPherson was obviously killed before his posthumous promotion to Ensign a month later). McPherson was also named to the Confederate Roll of Honor for Gettysburg, July 1st, Co. H.)
