Colonel I have visited the spot where you had been killed at Second Bull Run many a times. You were up on Chinn Ridge when this occurred. Thank you for your service to our country during our American Civil War. May you rest in peace, sir.

Webster supported the Fugitive Slave Act—which required the capture and return of escaped slaves even from states where slavery was illegal. Is said to be the Father of Slave, Robert Webster.
