BAR 23 VA

 In the evening of July 1, 1863, the 23rd arrived after a hard march at the Daniel Lady Farm on Hanover Road just east of Gettysburg. The farm is now preserved by the Gettysburg Battlefield Preservation Association. A barn on that farm would become a hospital for the men wounded on the attacks on Culp's Hill on the evening of July 2nd and morning of July 3rd, 1863. At some time during that period, Benjamin A. Roberts of the 23rd Virginia Regiment would carve his initials in the barn's door frame, to be respected and preserved by those who came after. "BAR" enlisted in the 23rd on May 2, 1861, as a private and rose to the rank of sergeant by April 1862, but for some reason was busted back to private in October that year. He would be present with the regiment continuously until captured at The Mule Shoe at Spotsylvania May 12, 1864. He would languish at Ft. Delaware until June 21, 1865. He had light complexion and dark hair. He would pass April 24, 1915, at the age of 75.
