. Itflashed upon mymind how, in the Mexican war, as his regiment filed past, I had almost afatherly fear lest he should be struck; and now he was here, wounded byone of my own men! He was tenderly cared for by my medical director,Doctor Mott, and I was delighted to learn that he would not lose his leg.The next morning General John F. Reynolds was brought in as a prisoner.He had been my messmate in the old army for more than a year, andfor lialf that time my tent-mate. Not an unkind word had ever passedT)etween us. General Reynolds seemed confused and mortified at his posi-tion. He sat down and covered his face with his hands, and at lengthsaid: Hill, we ought not to bi> enemies. I told him that there wasno bad feeling on mv part, and that he ought not to fret at the fortunesof war, which were notoriouslv fickle. He was placed in my ambulance andsent over to Richmond, do.-lining a loan of Confederate money. GeneralReynolds had gone to sleep in the woods between the battle-ground and

CAPTURED BY STONEWALL JACKSON HIMSELF. LEES ATTACKS NORTH OF THE CHICKAHOMINY. 361 the Chickahominy, and when he awoke, his troops were gone and the bridgewas broken down. Winder, Anderson, and Garland, probably the most promising of all ouryoung brigadiers, fell fighting for the cause they loved. Reynolds, one of thenoblest of mankind, fell doing his duty on his side at Gettysbmg. Sykes, asthe friend of McClellan, never received the recognition which his knightlyqualities demanded. Worst of all, Porter, who commanded on the field themost creditable to the Federal arms, received that condemnation so muchworse than death from the country he had served ably and loyally. In these battles, the great want with the Confederates, strange as it mayseem, was accmate knowledge of the country in their front. The map fur-nished me (and I suppose the six other major-generals had no better) wasvery full in regard to everything within our own lines; but a red line on theeast side of the Chickahominy

I have many of her paintings hanging on my walls because she is ALMOST kinfolk. My daddy’s daddy had many siblings. One brother was mentally-challenged and married a mentally-challenged woman. They had several children. Since intelligence goes toward the middle, one of the sons had normal intelligence and married a country girl, and they had several children who have lived normal, productive lives. After her husband’s death (many years later), that country girl was very sick and receiving rehabilitation in a hospital. They attempted to teach her to paint by regular standards. She told them she couldn’t do that and began painting in her own way. Her doctor loved the paintings and began selling them. After she returned to her humble home near Athens, GA; she continued to sell paintings as a means of income. She continues to take care of her deceased husband’s mentally-challenged brother.
To make a long story short, she is my daddy’s first cousin’s wife. She signs her paintings, "Annie Wellborn." At family gatherings many years ago, we always just called her, Geraldine.
In 1992, I had a 50th wedding anniversary party for my parents. It was held in a nice hotel in Athens, GA. One of the items on our private food table was steamed snow peas. Geraldine came to the party alone since her husband (my daddy’s 1st cousin) was very ill. At the celebration, folks were allowed to stand and talk about my parents. During Geraldine’s talk she made a comment about the food. She said, "What about those peas. They didn’t shell them. Look at all the time we wasted in the past shelling peas." She is a very interesting and funny lady.
Another strange bit of information is the fact that my mother’s name is Annie Wellborn, but she’s a different person.
Geraldine has even introduced her brother-in-law, Carter, to drawing. He has had showings of his drawings. www.onlineathens.com/stories/111303/ent_20031113014.shtml It just shows me that God is very faithful, and when He says He will take care of you, He means it. Carter is my daddy’s mentally-challenged 1st cousin.
