Hill, Daniel Harvey



"H" is for Hill, Daniel Harvey [1821-1889]. Soldier. After graduating from West Point, Hill served in a series of battles in the Mexican War. When the Civil War began he was given command of the First Regiment of North Carolina Volunteers and led his men to victory at Big Bethel Church, the first land battle of the war. Promoted to major general, he participated in the Seven Days campaign and showed great bravery under fire. At Sharpsburg his division lost more than sixty percent of its men and he had three horses shot from under him. In the Army of the Tennessee, at Chickamauga, he again proved his skill and bravery, but he and some of his fellow officers complained about the conduct of General Braxton Bragg. President Jefferson Davis personally intervened, supported Bragg, and relieved Daniel Harvey Hill from duty.
