Daniel Harvey Hill

Brother-in-law of Stonewall Jackson

Daniel Harvey Hill's first command came when Joe Johnston split P. G. T. Beauregard's corps after Old Bory was reassigned west.

Riding south to Malvern Hill, Daniel Harvey Hill questioned a pastor about about the retreating bluecoats. The man of the cloth described a strong Union position on either side of Willis Church Road south and east of where the road crossed Western Run. Hill road to Lee, repeated the man's description and recommended "...leaving McClellan alone."
