Born in Ohio in 1817, Bushrod Johnson served on the underground railroad and graduated from West Point, but was driven out of the army after illegal actions. He served as a professor at various schools, including the University of Nashville. Interestingly, when the Civil War broke out he joined the Confederate Army. Technically captured at the surrender of Fort Donelson, he simply walked out unimpeded through the porous Union lines. Johnson fought ably at Shiloh, at Perryville, Stones River, and Chickamauga, where he distinguished himself leading the attack that broke the Union position, and the Siege of Knoxville. He was then promoted to major general and sent to Virginia, where he distinguished himself again at the Battle of the Crater. However his command was destroyed at Sayler’s Creek and he was paroled at Appomattox Court House without a command. Johnson returned to Nashville where he co-chancellored the University of Nashville.

General Montgomery Meigs, Quartermaster General

General Montgomery Meigs, Quartermaster General

Montgomery Cunningham Meigs (May 3, 1816 – January 2, 1892) was a career United States Army officer, civil engineer, construction engineer for a number of facilities in Washington, D.C., and Quartermaster General of the U.S. Army during and after the American Civil War.

Meigs was born in Augusta, Georgia, a son of Dr. Charles Delucena Meigs and a grandson of the academic Josiah Meigs. While a boy, he moved with his family to Pennsylvania, and he initially attended the University of Pennsylvania, but was appointed to the United States Military Academy and graduated in 1836. He received a commission as a second lieutenant in the 1st U.S. Artillery, but most of his army service was with the Corps of Engineers, in which he worked on important engineering projects.

On May 14, 1861, Meigs was appointed colonel, 11th U.S. Infantry, and on the following day, promoted to brigadier general and Quartermaster General of the Army. The previous Quartermaster General, Joseph Johnston, had resigned and become a general in the Confederate Army. Meigs established a reputation for being efficient, hard-driving, and scrupulously honest. He molded a large and somewhat diffuse department into a great tool of war. He was one of the first to fully appreciate the importance of logistical preparations in military planning, and under his leadership, supplies moved forward and troops were transported over long distances with ever-greater efficiency.

A staunch Unionist despite his Southern roots, Meigs detested the Confederacy. He recommended that the historic Custis Mansion in Arlington, Virginia, owned by Mary Anna Custis Lee, the wife of Robert E. Lee, be used as a military burial ground. Based on this recommendation, Arlington National Cemetery was created in 1864. In October of that same year, his son, First Lieutenant John Rodgers Meigs, was killed at Swift Run Gap in Virginia and was buried at a Georgetown Cemetery. Lt. Meigs was part of a 3-man patrol which ran into a 3-man Confederate patrol; Lt. Meigs was killed; one was captured and one escaped. Meigs to the end of his life believed that his son had been murdered after being captured—despite evidence to the contrary.

In 1882 the Supreme Court of the United States ruled in United States v. Lee Kaufman that the recommendation made by Meigs and confirmed by Secretary of War Edwin M. Stanton was illegal and returned the estate to George Washington Custis Lee, Gen. Lee’s oldest son. He, in turn, sold the part of the estate that was used as a cemetery to the U.S. Government for 0,000, considered the fair market value of the property.

Soldiers and Airmen of the Virginia National Guard alongside members of the Virginia Defense Force set up displays outside the Virginia General Assembly Jan. 19 to draw attention to the capabilities of the units that fall under the commonwealth’s Department of Military Affairs. Later in the afternoon, Senator Mark Herring recognized members of all three organizations on the Senate floor. Throughout the day several Senators and Delegates filed through and met with the Soldiers and Airmen and discussed legislation currently before the General Assembly to benefit the Guard and VDF.

DMA legislation for 2011 General Assembly:

SB 891 / HB 1774: Allows the Governor to expend from sum sufficient funds for staging of the Virginia National Guard without declaring a state of emergency.

SB 1128 / HB 1994: Makes a failure to appear for Title 32 or State Active Duty a misdemeanor criminal offense.

SB 1334 / HB 1852: Modifies the existing military laws by deleting/changing outdated language.

Gov. McDonnell’s proposed budget amendments:

.4 million non-general funds in FY 2012 from federal funds for energy upgrades at National Guard and Air National Guard armories statewide.

.7 million in Virginia Public Building Authority bond financing for armory repairs, to be matched by an equal amount of federal funds.

0,000 non-general funds in FY 2012 from federal funds for repairs to state-owned cottages and trailers at the State Military Reservation.

,735 non-general funds in FY 2012 from federal funds to purchase high-frequency network enabled radios for the Virginia Defense Force.
