Monument to Confederate dead, Hollywood Cemetery, Richmond, Virginia, circa 1905
05/13/1864
Famed Confederate cavalry general J.E.B. Stuart had died the previous day at his brother-in-laws' house in Richmond of the pistol wound he had received twenty-four hours earlier in a cavalry engagement at Yellow Tavern, Virginia. The funeral service was held at St. James' Episcopal Church in the city and his body, with eight generals as his pallbearers, was placed in a family vault at the Hollywood Cemetery. His widow, Flora, never remarried and was buried with him in on her death in 1923. (By John Osborne)
