Manuscript Document Signed, 2p. folio, May 28, 1863, from Lynchburg, Virginia, showing votes for the Henry County House of Delegates Representative. Signed by Robert S. Lewis, Surgeon and C.R. Kemper, Surgeon, along with Lieut F. Lewis Marshall - all three as commissioners of elections. Autographs of Confederate Surgeons are difficult to find. Lynchburg, Virginia was known as 'Tobacco Town' before the Civil War, with its 70 thriving tobacco business and numerous warehouses along with 3 railroads serving these businesses. Early in the Civil War, many of the warehouses were converted into hospitals and the railroads became the conduit for Confederate casualties pouring into the city. Lynchburg's hospitals were staffed with over 50 military surgeons reporting for duty from all parts of the Confederacy. There was a peak time after the Battle of the Wilderness (May 1864) when Lynchburg, with 6,000 inhabitants, was overwhelmed with over 10,000 wounded and diseased soldiers. As the South's largest outpost hospital center, Lynchburg admitted in excess of 20,000 patients with nearly 3,000 deaths. Over 2,200 of those soldiers are buried in this Confederate Section of the Old City Cemetery.
