Confederate officer.
Major Daniel Washington Hurtt entered the service of the Confederate States in 1861 as a Captain of the Beauregard Rifles, which was assigned to Company I, Second Infantry Regiment. He served with the regiment in the campaigns at Rappahannock, Richmond, the Seven Days' campaign, Mechanicsville, Cold Harbor, Malvern Hill, South Mountain, and Sharpsburg, Md, during which he was shot in the face, losing the teeth on one side of his upper jaw, and taken prisoner, where he was sent to the hospital at Boonsboro. He was exchanged 10 days later, and upon his recovery, he rejoined his regiment in time to take part in the battles of Fredericksburg and Chancellorsville, where he was recognized for distinguished service in command of the brigade skirmishers, and was promoted to Major on the field by General Ramseur. He took command of the Second Regiment and led them at Gettysburg. On the first day of battle, while attacking the Union lines on Oak Ridge, he was struck on the breast by a minie ball, which, after penetrating a package of letters and his pocket Bible, inflicted such injuries that he was incapacitated for further service. He reported for duty again in May 1864, but upon examination was granted a furlough, and in August, 1864, he was compelled to resign on account of continued disability. Follwing the war, he worked as a tailor in New Bern and in 1886 relocated to Goldsboro until his death in 1805.

He was married to Maria E. Tisdale, daughter of William Tisdale, a Captain of the War of 1812. He had three children still living following the war: William T., Stephen F. and Henry T. After the death of his first wife, he wedded Kate L. Dewey. A brother of Major Hurtt, Edward H., served during the war on the blockade-runner, CSS Merrimac.

Prior to and following the war, Major Hurtt was an active member of the St. John's Masonic Lodge in New Bern where he held several posts to include Senior Deacon and Senior Warden.
