Captain Robert Taylor Scott, Fanny's husband, was on the staff of General George Pickett. Her brother, Captain Edward Carter was in the same division. Below is part of a letter from Fanny to Captain Scott penned after the tragic days of Gettysburg.

Glen Welby - Monday, 6th July 1863

Where are you, my dear husband what are you doing and what is going on. We live in utter ignorance of everything and everybody outside our immediate neighborhood. We rarely see a Southern paper and never hear anything definite of our army. Yesterday, we heard there had been a fight in Pennsylvania and that we had whipped the enemy. Of course, we are all anxiety to hear more. I live in daily and hourly dread of a battle. Has Longstreet been engaged? Is Edward safe?

Edward was not safe, he had been severley wounded in Pickett's Charge. When Fanny learned of this, she went to Chester, Pennsylvania, to nurse him.

She became president of the Black Horse Chapter of United Daughters of the Confederacy in Warrenton. A son, Richard Carter Scott (18591928), succeeded his father as attorney general of Virginia.
