Inscription

Captain Tredway rose through the ranks to become a regimental adjutant of the 53rd Virginia Infantry. He participated in the Battles of Big Bethel, Seven Pines, 2nd Manassas, Sharpsburg, Gettysburg, Proctor's Creek, and Chester Station. It is notable that Tredway was one of the few survivors of Pickett's Charge. Most of the men of Company I, Chatham Grays were killed, wounded, or captured. His brother Thomas Booker Tredway, perished in the immortal charge. After the war, Tredway rose in his community to become the Mayor of Chatham. He married the sister of Colonel Rawley White Martin, his regimental commander. Captain Tredway was long remembered for his devotion to duty, family, and to his church.
