MURPHY, William B. Color cpl. at Gettysburg 1 July 1863 when colors were captured at railroad cut. 7/13/1842-2/1/1915 buried Calvary Cemetery, Falls Co., TX. In a letter to Dr. F.A. Dearborn in New Hampshire, dated August 29, 1902, Murphy wrote "I am proud of being a rebel soldier and that I was color bearer of the 2nd Mississippi Volunteers in the later Civil War between the states. But there is no North, nor South today with me, and it was a great blessing for the American people that we had the war, for now we are all one and live under the best government in the World."
