There are two accounts of a tragic event that occurred at the Union Meeting House in April of 1866.  The first account is from Mrs. Bean, wrote a letter to Richard Nye Price in 1910.  She was not a witness, but since she lived close to the church, she recalled what her neighbors told her.  The second article is from a newspaper article that was published soon after the event and later published in the Evening Telegraph (Philadelphia).


Old Letter from Mrs Bean to the Reverend Richard Nye Price dated 1910

Mrs Bean lived one mile away from the church and relates the following details:

Bn Hichey had an appointment to preach and it seemed like a very large crowd had formed

Theopholus "Theo "Schrivener and two of his sisters were among the congregation. Two boys named Ben and Clint Walters had been lured by a bad man named Frank Monday to prevent Mr Hichey from preaching. However, Mr Hichey had not arrived and the boys began to make trouble with Mr Shrivener.

The Walter's boys were armed and demanded that Me Schrivener come out.

At this point, Mr Eldridge Hord and William Shelton, both old men. took the ring leaders to the door and put them out roughly. He turned around and shot Mr Hord in the crowd.

Sam Smith, on the outside of the house, shot Mr Walters, then the other Walter brother shot Smith. Although hit, Smith fired and hit his assailant, severely, but not fatally.

The first boy lay in the yard dying and asking someone to pray for him. Ephriam Brown went out to pray for him.

The other wounded men recovered.

Not withstanding all ot his Ben Hichey came out at last and preached.

Washington College






HISTORY
Chartered as an academy in 1783, when this territory belonged to North Carolina, and as a college in 1795 by the Territory of the United States South of the River Ohio, Washington College was "the first real institution of learning west of the Alleghanies." (Roosevelt's Winning of the West )

Our Scotch-Irish forbears had hardly reared their cabins before they built this "log college" in the wilderness.
General John Sevier, the leader of those sturdy patriots in the battle of King's Mountain, was one of the trustees, and it was on his motion that the College was named in honor of Washington. The territory was still infested by hostile tribes of Indians.

The founder and first President was the Reverend Samuel Doak, of Virginia, whose parents came from the north of Ireland. He graduated from Princeton College in 1775, studied theology, and became the "apostle of learning and religion to this region." The first donation (four hundred acres of land in North Carolina) was from Colonel Waitstill Avery a signer of the Mecklenburg Declaration. The College was within the territory of the Watauga Association, famous as the first attempt at free government on the part of native Americans. Such are but a few facts from a history full of interest throughout. An indigenous product of this section of the mountainous South the interests of the College have ever been identified with those of the people, sharing their struggles and privations, whether amid the perils of frontier life, the vicissitudes of war or the endeavor to restore the losses thereby entailed. Their descendants, being conservative and tenacious of traditions, this venerable Alma Mater has a strong hold on their sympathies. Mr Doak was at the head of the institution for thirty-eight years. It has sent forth numbers of useful men in every generation since its founding, not a few of whom have been eminent in the services of Church and State. There have been twelve presidents one of whom died before entering upon his duties. For a while during the Civil War, and a short period in the early seventies, (1870's) when circumstances and lack of funds rendered it impracticable to keep a sufficient teaching force to do legitimate college work, little more was attempted than an academic course of high grade. Though not organically connected with any ecclesiastical body, the College has always been closely affiliated with the Presbyterian Church. The charter provides that "the advantages of a liberal education and the honors of the College shall be accessible to students of all denominations."





LOCATION
The College is on the Southern Railway in Washington County, ninety miles east of Knoxville. Washington College is the name also of the station and post office. One of the college farms lies adjacent thereto, but the buildings are a mile and a half distant. Free transportation may be had from the station at the beginning of each term if notice be given beforehand.

The small rural village almost wholly a college community, is free from the allurements and distractions of cities and large towns. A more ideal place for study could hardly be found than the primeval grove in which the buildings stand. It is in the midst of an intelligent community, long noted for its Christian culture and sobriety. There are no saloons within forty miles. Salem Church, on the campus, affords excellent church and Sabbath school privileges. Then the neighboring mountains and foothills, flanking the Upper Tennessee Valley, furnish a diversity and picturesqueness of landscape whose ever-varying cast and hue invest it with perennial interest. Such surroundings constitute a wholesome atmosphere for mind and heart alike. (Source: Catalogue of Washington College, East Tennessee:, College Press, 1907, pp 8-10)

Forts in Knoxville Part One

South of the River





Soon after the raising of the siege at Knoxville, General Burnside issued an order which was read to each regiment of his army and of which the following is an extract the balance of the order including names of some officers of other States.


Fort Dickerson

(1863-1865) - A Union Civil War Fort established in 1863 in Knoxville, Knox County, Tennessee. Named Fort Dickerson in G.O. 37 (Army of the Ohio), 11 Dec 1863 after Captain Jonathan Calvin Dickerson, 112th Illinois Volunteer Mounted Infantry, who was killed 18 Sep 1863 near Cleveland, Tennessee. Burial: Link Fort abandoned in 1865 at the end of the war.
  • 15-16 Nov 1863 - Repulsed assaults by 5,000 Confederate Cavalry.
  • Nov-Dec 1863 - Withstood the Siege of Knoxville.
  • Nov 1863 - Provided artillery support for the Battles of Armstrong’s Hill
Jonathan Calvin Dickerson was born on 8 May 1832 to Benjamin Dickerson and Elizabeth Shafer in Ulster County, New York. He married Ceonelia Deyo on 28 May 1863. They had one son, who was not born until after Captain Dickerson died.
Capt Dickerson was the first officer of the 112th Illinois Volunteer Mounted Infantry who was killed.

He was a brave, daring leader, an honorable and conscientious officer, and a generous, noble hearted man. In a conversation with the author upon the chances of war, but a short time before his death, he declared he would never surrender to a rebel; that he would fight to the death rather than be captured; and in this, as in all things else, he kept his word. By order of Gen Burnside a fort in Knoxville was named Fort Dickerson, in honor of his brave death. He was buried in the cemetery at Cleveland and after the war, a fitting monument was erected to his memory by his widow. 

Battery Fearns

A look at Methodist Church Records in East Tennessee in the Civil War Era

In October 1862 the Holston Annual Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church South convened in Athens, Tennessee. Bishop Early presided, whose zeal for the cause of the South may be inferred from these words, which he is reported to have said when about to ordain a class of ministers. Lifting his hands toward heaven he exclaimed, "God forbid that these hands should be laid upon the head of any man disloyal to the Southern Confederacy!"
Rev Jonathan L Mann, then a young member of the Conference, was present and gives the following description:
In order to appreciate the doings of this Conference, we must first remember that the Confederacy was then at the highest climax of its glory, and that all rebeldom was sanguine of certain success. These things inspired (Bishop) Early and his rebel conclave to daring deeds of religious and ecclesiastical chivalry. They were surrounded by rebel soldiers, and cheered on by the presence and curses of the Provost Marshal, at Athens, who might have been frequently seen in the gallery of the Conference room during the sittings of the Conference, swearing what he would do with all the "Tory" or Lincolnite preachers of the Conference. The rebel members now had every thing their own way, without even the show of opposition. No Union member dared to enter his protest against even the most extreme measures that might be offered. Rebel bayonets and rebel prisons awed all of us into silence. Every Union minister of the Conference seemed to say. "If prudence will save my life I will at least be cautious."

Under these circumstances one of the first measures of the Conference was to appoint a committee of investigation, whose business it was to examine the political status of every suspected character of the Conference. The following were that committee: John M M'Teer, James S Kenedy, WH Bates, AG Worley, Carroll Long. Before this inquisitorial committee were arraigned the following brethren WH Rogers, WHH Duggan, Wm C Daily, JA Hyden, PH Reed, John Spears, James Cumming, Thomas H Russell and Thomas P Rutherford- nine in all every one of whom was charged with disloyalty to the Confederacy. (Source: Methodist Review (Google ebook, Volume 53,1871 p. 624)


It is affirmed that Bishop Early, before reading out the appointments said. "Brethren when you go to your several fields of labor, purge the Church of its unworthy members," by which he was understood to mean, "Turn out all persons who are not loyal to the Southern Confederacy." The Conference had set them a worthy example in this kind of work. They were exhorted now to go to their charges and do likewise. Whether the ministers so understood the Bishop or not, or whether they needed any exhortation, when they went to their charges, we are told that they the disloyal portion of the Conference eagerly commenced and zealously prosecuted the work of "purging the Church" of known Unionists, and thus hundreds, if not thousands, were cut off from membership. The preachers could not wait the slow process of a formal citation to appear and a trial by their peers. In many cases a summary process was adopted, and the names of the members deemed unworthy were by the minister stricken from the Church books, and those who were members a moment before were by a simple stroke of the pen dashed into excommunication. For nearly two years there followed a persecution which cannot be appreciated by those who did not feel it, the facts of which when stated would seem almost incredible. (Source: Methodist Review (Google ebook, Volume 53,1871 p. 625)
None of these men were charged with having committed an overt act of treason against the rebel government or even of having committed any act whatever. They were arraigned because rebels believed that their hearts and sympathies were with the Government in its grand struggle to crush an unholy rebellion. Here we have presented to us the strange spectacle of a body of Christian ministers trying its members for their political opinions. Several of these men were among the ablest members of the Conference. Father Cummings was above seventy years of age, still he must be humiliated by a mock trial, and that in his absence by a committee of rebels; his own children in the ministry. Rev JA Hyden was also absent and very sick at the time and his recovery even thought doubtful yet rebel vindictiveness must follow its helpess victim even to the very verge of death (Source: An Appeal to the Records: A Vindication of the Methodist Episcopal Church, in Its Policy and Proceedings Toward the South (Google eBook), Erasmus Q. Fuller, Hitchcock and Walden, 1876, p. 358)

In October 1863 the Conference met at Wytheville Virginia They here expelled Jonathan L Mann, William H Rogers, William Milburn, and WHH Duggan. All of these were expelled for their loyalty to the General Government and no other charges were preferred against them so far as we have been able to ascertain. Hence loyalty to the United States was deemed by the Southern clerical knights a crime sufficient to exclude a Christian minister from the fellowship and holy communion of Christ's Church. Only think of a body of men claiming to be Christian ministers, meeting in Conference and expelling their absent brethren simply for their adherence to the great principles of the Gospel of human freedom and of eternal right.

They were now more hostile toward Unionism than ever before ,and some of them actually began the work of expulsion from the Church for the sin of being loyal to the United States. For the truth of this remark, we could furnish scores of witnesses and victims in different parts of East Tennessee. In the mean time, Union preachers were made to suffer more than ever from the cruel hate and persecution of rebels. Long before this, our present noble Governor WG Brownlow and old Father Cummings had been forced to secrete themselves in the fastnesses of the Smoky Mountains from the prowlings of rebel murderers. WHH Duggan, a true man and a patriot, and then past the meridian of life, had been arrested and driven on quick time for miles through the heat and dust, at the points of rebel bayonets until he fainted and fell to the ground, and has been ever since a perfect wreck mentally and physically. WH Rogers, a firm and faithful man of God was arrested and taken South where for months we believe he was the inmate of the most loathsome of rebel prisons. William Milburn, another zealous and true minister of Christ, who had seen above sixty years of life, was arrested and finally released on condition that he would not pass beyond the limits of his own farm, except to mill and for a physician. John Spears was expelled at the Athens Conference, in their own laconic language for joining the enemies of his country. This was the only charge and for this they expelled him. Others were arrested and forced to take the oath of allegiance to the Confederacy or otherwise go to prison or to death. Scores of our local brethren were compelled to flee from their homes and take refuge in the Union army, some of whom were afterward brutally murdered. Such was the case with Chaplains Patty and M Call.

John Spears, (-1906) In 1866 Brother Spears made application for admission in the Indiana Conference, Riverside Cemetery at Spencer, Indiana

Brother Spears who died in 1873 the following extract is taken: After speaking of Brother Spears work in the Holston Conference, he (John J Hight) says, "By the autumn of 186, the storm of Civil War was desolating all the regions of Western North Carolina and Eastern Tennessee, but he in company, with such men as Parson Brownlow and others, was true to his country. At the Conference in the same year, he was granted a superannuated relation, and returned with his wife through the mountains to her father's home in the Sequatchie Valley. At the next session of the Conference there was, accorded him, the distinguished honor of an expulsion from the Methodist Episcopal Church South, for his devotion to his country, but before this happened, he had crossed the mountains into Kentucky, and without safety beyond the Ohio River, he enlisted in the Union Army, and was commissioned chaplain in the Sixth Tennessee Regiment. Link His command stationed at Cumberland Gap. Toward the autumn of the same year when the clouds of Civil War began to grow more gloomy than ever, he determined to attempt the rescue of his family. After a perilous journey, found his wife and children at her father's house. The most of her relation chose the Southern side of the contest, but she determined to share the fate of her husband and country. One horse was their only hope transportation. For more than two hundred miles through the mountains, beset with innumerable dangers, he with his wife and two children. journeyed. They reached the Union camp at Cumberland Gap just in time join in the celebrated retreat of General Morgan's forces at that place. He secured a buggy and preceded the army. At Mt Sterling, Ky, they were captured and detained. Here every inducement, including large offers of money, was presented to him to abandon the seemingly sinking fortunes the Union and to return to Tennessee. But husband and wife were not to moved from their purpose ,and after being robbed of horse and buggy other things, were set down in the street at Sharpville, Ky, penniless. From this place they made their way, as best they could, to Indiana where he left his family and returned to the army. It may truly be said of him that he "wandered in deserts, and in mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth;" that he had "trials of cruel mockings, yea moreover of bonds and imprisonments."

In 1866 Brother Spears made application for admission in the Indiana Conference. He had no certificate of transfer from the Holston Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church South, from which he had been expelled, and his only recommendation was his parchments and certificate of an honorable discharge as a chaplain in the Union Army. His was a peculiar case, but when it had been fully explained and the statement made by his Presiding Elder, that he had been expelled from the ministry and membership of the Methodist Episcopal Church South because he refused to pray for Jeff Davis and the Southern Confederacy, the Bishop remarked, "That is recommendation enough," and he was admitted. The Indiana Conference never had a more loyal kind and lovable member than John Spears.
