William Joseph Hardee Jr. C.S.A.

William Joseph Hardee Jr., nicknamed "Willie," was the son of Lt. General William Joseph Hardee Sr., of the War Between the States fame. He grew up at Fort Inge On The Leona River, Bexar, Texas.

Willie and his three sisters were all privately tutored at West Point while then Colonel Hardee was the Commandant of Cadets, from 1856-1860. The Hardee children were tutored by Oliver O. Howard, a personal friend of the Hardee family. In a curious twist of fate Willie FOUGHT AGAINST Howard at the battle of Bentonville where he was mortally wounded in the chest.

He served first with Terry's Texas Rangers during the War in Wheeler's Cavalry Division.
