Thomas Epaphroditus Howle was first Lt. in Co. F in the 8th SCV Regt., and later captain. Co. F was nicknamed "The Darlington Grays", and they enlisted for one year. After 1st Manassas, T.E. returned home on a 45-day furlough to raise another unit (per act of the Confederate Congress). He was able to get about 85-90 men to enlist and returned to Virginia. These men became Co. M, 8th SCI. Capt. Howle was killed near the Dunker Church at Sharpsburg.
