Learn about upgrading this memorial...
[Add Flowers]
Levi was born in Chambers Co. Alabama around 1840. He moved with his family to Starrville Tx in 1852. his father was Thomas Booker Butler who was a very wealthy planter. Levi had relatives in Copiah Co. Ms and for some reason he went there to enlist in the 12th Ms Infantry. He was mustered in at Corinth Ms and from there his regiment went to Virginia to fight in the Army of Northern Virginia. He was in Richard Andersons Division and saw action around Richmond, then at Harpers Ferry during the Maryland campaign. During the early morning hours of Sept. 17 his division arrived on the field at Sharpsburg and was sent in to reinforce D H Hill in the sunken road. Shortly after, through a miscommunication of orders, his unit retreated from their position and Levi was either killed outright or mortally wounded and was later buried on David Reels farm across the Hagerstown turnpike. His grave was well marked and years later he was reinterred at the Washington Confederate Cemetery in Hagerstown Maryland.
