Confederate General Robert S. Garnett was killed on July 13th during the Battle of Corrick's Ford in what is now Parson, WV. He was the first general killed during the American Civil War.

A young boy died trying to protect the General from the Union soldiers while the rest of the unit tried to flee. The boy is buried in an unmarked grave behind the Corrick House close to the grave marker for the Corricks. The boy deserved a medal!!
