There is a very brave man buried in Tammany Parish, a veteran of the Battle of New Market, Virginia, May 15, 1864. The VMI Corps of Cadets fought as a unit, and 257 cadets were on the field. Ten cadets were killed in battle or died later from the effects of their wounds; 45 were wounded. The youngest participating cadet was fifteen; the oldest twenty-five.
Could someone please find and photograph the tombstone of:
Pierre W. Woodlief, VMI class of 1867, Covington
This is ALL I know about him. If you could find some biographical information that would be wonderful!
A group of Virginia Military Institute alumni are attempting to locate the graves of all of the cadets who fought in the Battle of New Market in the Civil War. They contacted me about my ancestor who was a cadet then, and I volunteered to help them get the other graves photographed, knowing we have so many wonderful people on Rootsweb. ;-)
You can visit their web page at http://www.augustagavmiaa.info/new_market_database.htm

I've identified all the counties on the list of about 150 men they haven't photographed, and am contacting each county on Rootsweb. Then after I hear from everyone, I'm going back to research whom I can. One of those tip of the iceberg projects you accidentally wander into. I've been to the battleground, and no one else was there that day. It was quite moving to walk where they fought, and when this came up I felt like I had to help.
I'll be unsubscribing as soon as this is posted, so if you can help please contact me at sarahreveley(a)grandecom.net .
Remember, this is ALL I know about him.
