He was born in Orange County, Va., November 17, 1844, the son of Philip Fry. In the spring of 1861 he left his studies at school and enlisted in the Confederate service in Company A, 13th Virginia Infantry, commanded by Ambrose P. Hill. Later he served with Elzey's Brigade, Ewell's Division, in the battle of First Manassas. During the famous Valley Campaign he was under Stonewall Jackson and took part in the Seven Days' battles before Richmond.
