Published in the Jacksonville Republican newspaper, Jacksonville, Alabama, on December 12, 1861.

Jesse F. Leatherwood---1861, with buoyant hope of rendering efficient service in maintaining Southern independence, Jesse F. Leatherwood entered the ranks of Capt. Woodruff's company, 10th Regt. Ala. Vol. stationed near Bristoe; but alas his experience as a soldier was brief and sad; he was attacked by measles—and relapsed, and was seized by hemorrhage, which terminated his existence Sept. 2d, 1861 at aged 21 years, 4 months, and 13 days. His time had come, and all the help of friends could not prevent his death. His sufferings were severe. Although he had not made a public profession of religion yet, from corresponding friends who were with him in his last hours, we have hope of his acceptance with God. Although he had been but a short time in service, we learn that he had by good moral deportment, and fidelity as a soldier, gained the confidence and esteem of both privates and officers. His service is done in this world, but still he lives in memory, and his patriotism and virtue will never be forgotten.
