A Sketch of Captain John E. Penn's Company of Patrick County, Virginia
Captain John E. Penn's Company Patrick-Henry Volunteers left Penn's Store July 1, 1861 for Lynchburg to go into camp for military instruction. They marched from Lynchburg July 3rd and were mustered into service July 5th and were assigned to the 42nd Virginia Regiment as Company H Lowrings Brigade, General R. E. Lee's Division, they left Lynchburg July 20th being ordered to Beverly from that place and this command was known as the Army of Northern Virginia.
The enemy were found so strongly fortified on he Alleghany Mountains that our General deemed it impossible to dislodge them. The command was then ordered to Sewell Mountain to reinforce General Gloyd and Wise who were falling back in the face of a large force of the enemy. The enemy then fell back on Gauley River and the roads were in such bad condition that our Army could not pursue them. This command was then ordered to Greenbrier Ridge (Bridge) to go into winter quarters. Sometime in December it was ordered to the Valley of Virginia to form General Stonewall Jackson's Division. History will tell the balance of the movements of this command. A list of the names of Company H, 42nd Virginia Regiment
