About Capt. Richard Ashby, (CSA)

Richard was killed during an engagement with a Union patrol along the Potomac in June 1861. After he had a chance to examine the corpse, Richard's brother, Brig. General Turner Ashby, Jr. was convinced his brother had been bayoneted while trying to surrender. As a result, he came to hate Northerners and desired revenge.

Buried at Indian Mound Cemetery in Romney; later moved to Stonewall Jackson Cemetery in Winchester, Va. and buried in the same grave with his brother Brig. Gen. Turner Ashby.
