Tuttles and the Civil War
The following is a copy of an entry made in our
Cobb-Sasser Website Guestbook, on 04/09/00, by:
for the southern branch of Tuttles.
Interesting historic anecdote:
In the waning days of the Civil War,
Union General Stoneman and his army passed through Stokes Co., NC
("Stonemans Raid"), on the way to liberate Union prisoners of war
at the notorious prison in Salisbury, NC.
Passing by the Tuttle farms, soldiers basically took everything
that wasn't nailed down and destroyed most everything that was
... shot the weathervane on the barn, it was badly bent and shot
full of holes, but still standing, I believe to this day.
This was just over a week before the surrender at Appomattox,
at which there were two Tuttles of this lineage present, who,
with Lee took the oath of allegiance, were well fed by the Union
command and allowed to go home to Danbury and Germanton.
I live just a few miles east of the original colonial land grant
(of 150 acres on the Town Fork and Red Bank creeks)
to Thomas Tuttle in the 1760's.
The local regiment for the Confederacy was
the NC 21st, Company F, the "Town Fork Invinceables."
They were first at Bethel, furthest at Gettysburg
(John Tuttle killed there), and last at Appomattox.
The company suffered 75% casualty rate.
Four Tuttles died in that war, all but one of disease.
Hope you enjoyed the brief history!
