Maj. Thomas Grimke Rhett – [Plot F-01; Readable] UNAVAILABLE (V.A. Stone)

Rhett_Thomas_G(sm)

 

Thomas Grimke Rhett was born Thomas Moore Smith on August 2, 1821, in South Carolina, the son of James and Charlotte (Haskell) Smith. Both parents were from prominent South Carolina families.  His father (a lawyer, planter, and state senator) and his five brothers (an uncle was future Senator Robert Barnwell Rhett) changed their name to the more aristocratic "Rhett" in 1837. Appointed at large to West Point, Rhett graduated sixth in his class of forty-one in 1845. His antebellum army career started as a second lieutenant of ordnance on July 1, 1845, working in the Washington, D.C., arsenal. Transferring to the Mounted Rifles Regiment, he was promoted to first lieutenant on April 18, 1847, and captain on September 16, 1853. Active in the Mexican War, Rhett was breveted captain in 1847 for gallant and meritorious conduct. Major and paymaster from April 7, 1858, he served as paymaster at Fort Bliss, Texas, through 1861.

 

Upon the surrender of the U.S. Army forces in Texas, Rhett, pursuant to the surrender terms, transferred his funds to the Texas authorities. He officially resigned from the army on April 1, 1861. In the meantime Rhett was nominated by the governor of South Carolina to be a brigadier general of South Carolina volunteers (under the act of December 17, 1860). This was before Fort Sumter, and Rhett never served as general. Commissioned a Confederate major in March, 1861, Rhett joined the staff of General P. G. T. Beauregard.  On July 20, 1861, he was appointed assistant adjutant general and chief of staff to General Joseph E. Johnston, commander of the main army in northern Virginia. He served on Johnston's staff until the latter's wounding at the Battle of Seven Pines in 1862. Relieved from duty with Johnston, Rhett was transferred to the Trans-Mississippi Department and served first as chief of ordnance for the District of Arkansas. In April, 1863, Rhett was appointed chief of artillery for the Trans, Mississippi Department. The balance of the war he spent in that capacity. A fellow staff member remembers him as "a man of grand physique, spirit and capacity. He could see no wrong in one he liked and no good in one he disliked." His exile to the Trans-Mississippi can perhaps be explained by his association with General Johnston and with Senator Rhett, both vocal administration opponents.

 

After the war Rhett refused to remain in America. Along with several other former officers, both northern and southern, he accepted an offer to join the army of the Khedive of Egypt. Rhett served as colonel of ordnance in the Egyptian army through 1873. Paralyzed by a stroke in September, 1873, Rhett resigned his commission and went to Europe. Returning to the U.S. in 1876, he lived in Baltimore with relatives until his death on July 28, 1878. He is buried in Green Mount Cemetery in Baltimore.

 

Rhett's rank of general in South Carolina's state army qualifies him to be considered a Confederate general.

John M. Rodgers – [Plot C-26; Readable] ADOPTED

 

John_M_Rodgers(sm)

The marker for this veteran says, “John M. Rodgers, a soldier at 12 years, born 1850, entered War Academy at Norfolk, Mahones’ Brigade, Co. H, 12th Virginia Infantry, in 14 battles, 23 skirmishes, dies February 16, 1921, age 71 years, 4 months, 12 days.”  What a stone full of information.  However, that is not all there is to know about Private Rodgers.

 

Consider this; his service record notes his enlistment as April 28, 1862 for the period of the War in the 12th Virginia Infantry, Co. H, which is also known as the Norfolk Junior Volunteers under Captain F.F. Ferguson.  The great majority of his battles must have occurred between 1862 and 1863.

 

The 12th Virginia fought at Crampton’s Gap, 2nd Manassas, the Seven Days battle, Sharpsburg (Antietam), Fredericksburg and Chancellorsville.  I should mention specifically, the Sharpsburg battle.  At the end of the day, the 12th Virginia Infantry Regiment left the field to return to Virginia with only 23 men left out of the whole regiment.  One of those men was John M. Rodgers.

 

We know from his service record that Private Rodgers also fought in the battles at Gettysburg.  His file indicates that on July 2nd, 1863, Private John M. Rodgers was wounded in the right arm and suffered a “severe flesh wound on the back of his left leg,” as noted in the surgeon’s report.

 

The 12th Virginia was in Mahone’s Brigade, R.H. Anderson’s Division and on July 2nd, 1863 was sent into the Wheatfield and the Peach Orchard.  Private Rodgers did not return.  At the end of the day he was a badly wounded prisoner of war.

 

Within a week, Private Rodgers was in the U.S. General Hospital, West Building in Baltimore, Maryland minus his right arm.  He stayed at the West Building until September 25th when he was paroled and sent to City Point for exchange.  By the end of the month he was in Chimborazo Hospital in Richmond.  The next card in his file shows Private Rodgers being discharged/retired on November 15th, 1864 having only one arm and a partially recovered flesh wound of the left leg, at the ripe old age of 14.

 

The card of his discharge should be the last, but it wasn’t!  Lo and behold he asked to continue to serve as a part of the invalid corps and was put in charge of the Surgeon General’s Ice House in Richmond.  He continued his service until Richmond was evacuated.

 

The final card in his file is dated May 3, 1865.  As a soldier in the purveying department of Joseph E. Johnston’s Army, Private John M. Rodgers is paroled for the final time with Johnston and his men on the 3rd of May 1865.  For Rodgers, age 15 and a true veteran of the war, it is finally over.

 

After the war, for unknown reasons (except for perhaps his hospital stay in Baltimore) he retires in Baltimore City where he lives out the balance of his life at 605 George Street.  He was active until his death in the Society of Army and Navy of the Confederate States in Maryland.  On the 16th of February 1921, at the age of 71, Private Rodgers dies of natural causes and is laid to rest on “Confederate Hill.” Loudon Park Cemetery three days later.

  Born in Frederick county, MD, on November 25, 1835.  Enlisted as a private in Company H, First Maryland Regiment of Infantry at Richmond June 19, 1861.  In which command I served 12 months when the company was mustered out of service-it’s time expired.  In January 1863 I re-enlisted again as a private in Captain Breathed’s Battery of General J.E. B. Stuart’s Horse Artillery in Richmond.  In this command I remained till General R.E. Klee surrendered at Appomattox Court House. Received a slight flesh wound at the Second Battle of Cold Harbor. Captured in September 1864 at the battle of Fisher’s Hill.  Was incarcerated in the prison at Point Lookout where I remained until General R. E. Lee surrendered at Appomattox Court House.
