Obituary of James L. White, Abingdon, Virginia

Capt. James L. White, a gallant Confederate soldier, died at his home, in Abingdon, Va., on the 8th of December, 1914. Captain White was among the first to don the gray from Washington County, Va., and served as adjutant of the 37th Virginia Infantry for some time, then on the staff of Gen. William Terry, and at the close of the war he was on the staff of Gen. John B. Gordon, Army of Northern Virginia. On the fateful field of Appomattox he was wounded and left for dead, but he recovered, studied law, and from 1867 up to his death was regarded as one of the foremost lawyers of Virginia. He was beloved by everyone. His funeral was largely attended and his body was followed to the grave by many of his comrades in arms.
