One year before the end of the war Captain John C. Blair with the 1st North Carolina Cavalry, Company D was captured by the northern army at Yellow Tavern, Virginia on May 11, 1864 and sent to a union prison at Fort Delaware. Later when one of the union armies was trying to capture Charleston, SC, he was taken from the prison with a crowd of 600 other confederate officers, who were also held as prisoners of war, and carried to Charleston to be marched in front of the ranks of the union army in their attack on that city. This incident in history is known as the "Immortal Six Hundred".
