DAVIS, SAM (1842-1863)Known as the Boy Hero of the Confederacy, twenty-one-year-old Sam Davis was sentenced by Union troops to death by hanging when he refused to divulge information about one of his fellow captives. Davis was born and raised in Smyrna, Tennessee, where his boyhood home still stands today. When the Civil War began, he enlisted immediately and was made a private. When captured by Union soldiers, he was on a mission for the Confederate army and had in his saddle bags a package containing Union Army battle plans. He denied any personal knowledge of the contents. When asked from whom he obtained the information, Davis refused to name the source and was consequently sentenced to death as a spy. Just before he was hung, a Union scout tried to give him one last chance to save his life, but Davis responded, "I'd rather die a thousand deaths than betray a friend." The monument to Davis on Capitol Hill was erected by the Daughters of the Confederacy with help from the state legislature and is one of four in Tennessee commemorating his heroism. http://www.library.nashville.org/research/res_nash_history_whos.asp
