weermag van die noordweste deur die herfs en winter van 1861, en het sy dapper diens gelewer in die nederlae van die Federale by die Greenbrier -rivier en Alleghany -berg, en by McDowell in Mei 1862. Daarna is sy regiment verbonde aan Early se brigade van Ewell se afdeling , en hy word geïdentifiseer met die loopbaan van die beroemde brigade gedurende 1862. By die slag van Cedar Mountain trek hy die aandag van generaal Early deur sy dapperheid in die vooruitgang, met 'n klein groepie manne, insluitend die kleurdraer, nadat die regiment deur 'n agteraanval in wanorde geslinger is. By Second Manassas het hy weer lof gekry vir sy dapperheid om 'n kolom van die vyand terug te dryf terwyl hy in beheer was van die brigade -skermutseling. Hy word in Januarie 1863 as majoor bevorder. In April en Mei was die vyf-en-twintig by Imboden in die weste van Virginia, en weer by die weermag aangesluit by die brigade van J. M. Jones van die Stonewall-afdeling. Majoor Lilley het groot lof gewen deur sy dienste in bevel oor die skermutseling van hierdie brigade in Gettysburg, en is bevorder tot luitenant-kolonel. Hy het met lof by Mine Run gedien, en nadat die veldslae van die Wilderness en Spottsylvania Court House bevorder is, het hy brigadier-generaal bevorder en onder bevel van die ou brigade van Early aangestel. In hierdie hoedanigheid dien hy in die ekspedisie deur Maryland teen Washington. Kort na sy terugkeer na die vallei is hy ernstig gewond en gevange geneem tydens 'n geveg naby Winchester, 20 Julie 1864, maar is vier dae later weer gevang. Op 28 November 1864 kry hy bevel oor die reserwemagte van die Valley -distrik, waar hy gedurende die res van die oorlog gedien het. Generaal Lilley is op 12 November 1886 oorlede.

Generaal-majoor Lunsford Lindsay Lomax, 'n gesiene offisier van die voorlopige weermag van die Konfederale State, wat uit die rang van kaptein tot dié van generaal-majoor in die weermag van Noord-Virginia gebore is, is gebore in Newport, RI, die seun van Mann Page Lomax , van Virginia, 'n hoof van die munisipaliteit in die Amerikaanse weermag. Sy ma, Elizabeth Lindsay, was 'n afstammeling van kaptein Lindsay, wat tydens die Revolusie 'n geselskap bevelvoer het in die ligte perde -kavallerie van Harry Lee, en 'n arm verloor het in die oorlog vir onafhanklikheid. Sy pa was ook van 'n ou Virginia -gesin. Young Lomax is in die skole opgelei


LOMAX LUNSFORD LINDSAY, CSA - Geskiedenis

Generaal-majoor Lunsford Lindsay Lomax, 'n gesiene offisier van die voorlopige weermag van die Konfederale State, wat uit die rang van kaptein tot dié van generaal-majoor in die weermag van Noord-Virginia gebore is, is gebore in Newport, RI, die seun van Mann Page Lomax , van Virginia, 'n hoof van die munisipaliteit in die Amerikaanse weermag. Sy ma, Elizabeth Lindsay, was 'n afstammeling van kaptein Lindsay, wat tydens die Revolusie 'n geselskap bevelvoer het in die ligte perde -kavallerie van Harry Lee, en 'n arm verloor het in die oorlog vir onafhanklikheid. Sy pa was ook van 'n ou Virginia -gesin.

Young Lomax is opgelei in die skole van Richmond en Norfolk, en is op 1 Julie 1852 as kadet-in-groot aangestel by die militêre akademie in West Point, waar hy op 1 Julie 1856 gegradueer is en tot 'n brevet-luitenant in die tweede kavallerie. Hy dien op grensdiens in Kansas, Nebraska, en daardie streek, met bevordering tot tweede luitenant van die Eerste Kavalerie, 30 September 1856 en eerste Luitenant, 21 Maart 1861, tot die afskeiding van sy Staat uit die Verenigde State.

Hy bedank op 25 April 1861 sy dienste aan Virginia en word op 28 April aangestel as kaptein in die staatsmagte. Hy is onmiddellik as assistent-adjudant-generaal aangestel by die personeel van genl. Joseph E. Johnston, en later is hy oorgeplaas na die operasionele gebied buite die Mississippi, as inspekteur-generaal by die personeel van die dapper Texan, brigadier-generaal McCulloch, wat 'n afdeling van Van Dorn se leër beveel het. Nadat McCulloch geval het, is hy bevorder tot inspekteur-generaal in die personeel van genl.maj Earl Van Dorn, met die rang van luitenant-kolonel. Hy dien in hierdie hoedanigheid van Julie 1862 tot Oktober, toe hy as inspekteur-generaal van die weermag van Oos-Tennessee aangestel is.

Op 23 Julie 1863 word hy bevorder tot brigadier-generaal en word hy aangestel onder die bevel van 'n brigade kavallerie wat vir hom georganiseer is van die vyfde, sesde en vyftiende Virginia-regimente en die eerste Maryland-kavallerie. Onder sy bevel was hierdie brigade een van die belangrikste faktore in die daaropvolgende operasies van Fitz Lee se afdeling, waaronder die gevegte by Culpeper Court House, Morton's Ford, die tweede ontmoeting by Brandy Station, Todd's Tavern, die Wilderness -veldtog, Cold Harbour, Yellow Tavern , Ream's Station en Trevilian's. Sy dapper en koel leierskap in hierdie belangrike verbintenisse het daartoe gelei dat hy op 10 Augustus 1864 tot die rang van generaal-majoor bevorder is. Hy het bevel gekry oor 'n afdeling wat bestaan ​​uit die kavallerie -brigades van Bradley T. Johnson, WL Jackson, Henry B. Davidson, JD Imboden en John McCausland, en lewer prominente en vooraanstaande diens in die Vallei -veldtog van die weermag onder generaal Early, op die gevegte van Winchester, Tom's Brook en ander ontmoetings.

Op 31 Oktober is hy onder die bevel van die kavallerievleuel van die weermag onder Early aangestel, en op 29 Maart 1865 word hy in beheer van die Valley -distrik van die departement van Noord -Virginia. Na die val van Richmond het hy sy magte na Lynchburg verskuif, en toe Lee oorgegee het, stuur hy die nuus na generaal Echols, met wie hy probeer het om 'n aansluiting te vorm met die oorblyfsels van sy eie, Fitz Lee's en Rosser se afdelings. Hy het daarin geslaag om by die weermag in Noord -Carolina aan te sluit, en het sy afdeling met Johnston in Greensboro oorgegee.

Daarna keer hy terug na die Caroline county, Va., En hy beoefen boerdery, waaraan hy hom stilweg toegewy het gedurende die daaropvolgende jare tot 1889, toe hy na die presidentskap van die kollege in Blacksburg geroep is. Hy bedank hierdie pos na vyf jaar diens. Hy is al etlike jare besig met die amptelike samestelling van die rekords van die oorlog, in Washington, DC

The Lomax Years (1886-1891)

The new president, Lunsford Lindsay Lomax, had no experience in operating an educational institution, but after his appointment and before he took office, he began studying other land-grant college programs, even visiting one of the premier schools and holding discussions with government officials involved in agricultural programs.

When the board met on July 1, 1886, Lomax’s first day on the job, it returned the college to the semester system, re-instituted the preparatory department, added a non-diploma business program, substituted a B.Sc. degree for the A.B. degree, discontinued the mining engineer (M.E.) degree, and added a mechanical engineer (Mech.E.) degree. The heated political interference faced by Lomax’s predecessors cooled during his tenure.

The major achievement of Lomax’s administration was the erection of the No. 1 Barracks (now known as Lane Hall), which was completed and occupied in October 1888, housing 150 students, two to a room. Lomax also secured $4,000 to convert the old Preston and Olin Building into a shop.

While Lomax faced little political interference, dissatisfaction grew with VAMC as an agricultural school, a mechanical school, and a technical school, even though the president himself was held in high regard. Added to this discontent, the discipline of the student body began to deteriorate, and the hazing of freshmen—called “rats”—increased.

After conducting a study of the college and its mission in 1890, the board of visitors recommended that the college be reorganized on a two-track system of agriculture and mechanics, a change actively opposed by Lomax. Increasingly, members of the board determined that Lomax was not the right person to take the school in a new direction.

Near the end of the year, a group of students in No. 1 Barracks became intoxicated during a party, destroying furniture and breaking doors and windows. The board viewed this incident as the last straw, but the rector of the board convinced his colleagues to wait until spring to make any final decisions. In a meeting in Richmond on April 7, 1891, the board terminated three professors, believing they did not have the proper training to fit into the proposed new program. Lomax, still held in high personal regard by the board, was asked to resign and consider another position at VAMC. But he preferred to leave the college and resigned immediately. The board appointed John E. Christian, a professor in the school, as acting president to fill Lomax’s unexpired term.
