Obituary of Charles W. Carter, Norfolk, Virginia.

Comrade Charles W. Carter, a gallant Confederate soldier and Christian gentleman, died at his residence, Norfolk, Va., July 22, 1914, in the seventieth year of his age. Early in the sixties he enlisted in the 13th Regiment of Virginia Cavalry, Chambliss' Brigade, W. H. F. Lee's division., A. N. V. While Grant's army was around Petersburg he was detailed as relay courier for Gen. R. E. Lee, and in this daring service in the enemy's lines he was captured and carried a prisoner to Newport News, Va., from which place he escaped, crossing the James River at night in a small boat.

Comrade Carter was a member of A. P. Hill Camp, Confederate Veterans, and a member of Petersburg Lodge, A. F. and A. M., both of which paid their last tribute of respect to his memory when he was laid to rest in old Blanford Cemetery, Petersburg, Va.
