The manuscripts collection at the University of Virginia library in Charlottesville has an interesting diary by Joseph E. Purvis from of Co. G, 19th Virginia regiment. Purvis was slightly wounded and taken prisoner during Pickett's charge on 3 July 1863. He writes that nine [10?] others of his company were also taken, including Capt. Boyd. He arrived at Fort Delaware prison on 10 July (see post on prisons board for additional details). Another member of his company arrived at the prison on 15 July for twelve total. At the back of his book he gives their names, commenting that they were taken the same day (3 July) as he was: Capt. W. M. Boyd, J. E. Purvis, J. J. Loving, J. Harvey, C. P. Dillard, L. P. Hughes, J. E. Loving, J. Hamilton, Wm. H. Ponton ("this was cousin Billy Ponton"), K. Whitehead, Wm. Johnson. Incidentally, Purvis had purchased his diary in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania on 30 June, the eve of the battle.
