At age 97, Captain Samuel A'Court Ashe of Raleigh is the last surviving officer of the Confederate Army. Many of his accomplishments are known publicly, but Osborne focuses on one short period of his service in the Army of which little has been written--his conduct as Commander of Fort Wagner near Charleston, South Carolina in 1863.
The article's author presents a brief biography of Samuel A'Court Ashe. Ashe was a prominent figure in the state's history serving as a soldier, jurist, legislator, editor, and most importantly historian. He edited the 1904 seven volume series Biographical History of North Carolina from Colonial Times to the Present and wrote his own two volume state history entitled simply History of North Carolina.
