This a copy of a speech given by Avery, a NC Supreme Court judge on the date given. Very little is found on Hill who gained Lieutenant General rank in the Confederate Army. He was Stonewall's brother-in law and good friends with Joe Johnston and James Longstreet.

He had great abilities and was well respected, but he was underutilized by the end of the Civil War because of political feuds with Davis and Lee.

The author served in the "Bloody Sixth" North Carolina and was on Hill's staff for a period.
