Netherland Tavern
Netherland Tavern - 2001

On June 11, as Brigadier General Matthew C. Butler's Brigade, under Hampton, was being forced back towards the railroad, some of the men occupied the Netherland Tavern.(See June 11 map, above) The dismounted Union cavalry attacked on three sides. During a lull in the fighting, Mrs Lucy Hughson ran out of the building, onto the road, carrying her baby. A sharp command rang out and Union carbines were silenced and Confederates held their fire. Captain H. C. Orme, a Federal Officer from Phoenix, Arizona, galloped forward, lifting the baby from the mother's arms and escorted the mother and baby to safety. Not until they had disappeared from sight, did the firing resume. 1
