Years of research and months of detailed preparation culminated Saturday with the reinterment of Col. Cullin Redwine Earp, C.S.A., the highest-ranking Confederate officer to come from Upshur County. He was commander of the 10th Texas Calvary, and took part in at least 21 bloody battles.

He joined the Confederate Army afty Upsher County voted 97 percent in favor of secession.

He died in October, 1865, probably of wounds received in combat. He was only 37.

Earp was reinterred at Hopewell Cemetery, near his brother and other relatives. He left no direct descendents, but many of his nieces and nephews many times removed still live in Upshur County. Ther at least 22 other Confederate veterans, including Earp's brother, buried in Hopewell.

The event was organize by the Upshur County Patriots, local chapter of the Sons of Confederate Veterans (SCV).
