About Abraham Atchley

When 10 or 12 years old, he moved with his father to Louden Co., VA. On Oct. 25, 1778 he volunteered under Capt. James Reddikin for three months and rendezvoused at the Baptist Meeting House five miles from Leesburg on the road to Washington City. They marched to Fort Pitt and remained until Dec. 1, 1778 when they were relieved and returned home. On Aug. 10, 1781 he was drafted to go to the siege of Yorktown and acted as orderly sergeant under Capt. David May. They rendezvoused at the court house. He arrived about Sept. 10th and was attached to the regiment of Col. Samuel Lewis. There was almost constant cannonading kept up on both sides and occasionally engagements of light horsemen. His company was part of the guard of prisoners to Winchester Barracks. He lived in Virginia until about 1813 when he moved to East Tennessee.
