About William "Bill" Rice

It was told to me by his Gr-Gr-Gr Grand Son Donald Rice (Son of Wilson Carl Rice) that William "Bill" Rice was in the Civil War on the Confederate side where he single handedly held off a platoon of Union Soldiers during a battle at the Mouth of Rush Creek where it joins up with Middle Fork River. He held them off from a Knob above the Mouth of the Creek for 3 to 4 hours while the rest of his group circled around and captured the Company of Union Soldiers. During the battle, Bill Rice shoot and killed 3 Union Soldiers. A full company of Union Soldiers generally consisted of 15 men.
