Confederate Memoranda on William Stallins, Fairfax County, Virginia. Circa 1861-1862.

William Stallins.-Aged nineteen. Born Loudon; moved to Fairfax and volunteered in the Seventeenth Regiment Virginia Volunteers. At Lewinsville he got scared and went to his home and was turned out of his regiment, dishonored and branded for cowardice. This boy is proved to be faithful to the South and seems pentinent for his conduct. He admits he behaved badly and was scared, but he is very anxious to volunteer and redeem his character for courage and good conduct. He was going to Fisher to volunteer when arrested. I recommend an opportunity be give him to redeem himself and that he be permitted to volunteer again.
