- CHANNING M. BUTT. -
Stonewall Camp, of Portsmouth, Va., recently lost a valued member in the death of C. M. Butt.
He was born on the 27th of May, 1845, and served gallantly in the Confederate Army. During the latter part of April, 1862, while serving as clerk in the post office at Portsmouth, he applied for membership in the "Old Dominion Guards", but was rejected on account of his youthful age, being only sixteen years of age. As he was zealous in his purpose to enter the service, he resigned his position and enlisted as a private in the Independent Signal Corps of the Confederate States, and served in that branch of the army until the close of the war. When the Federal fleet which landed at Bermuda Hundreds in 1864 compelled the evacuation of the stations along the James River, his corps was formed into an infantry battalion, and he performed infantry duty at Fort Clifton for several months and also on the retreat from Petersburg. He was paroled at Burksville Junction on April 13, 1865, as a result of the surrender of General Lee. He was faithful in the discharge of every duty. Confederate Veteran, Vol. XII, p. 545.
