Jessee Horne Civil War Service
Jessee Horne was killed during the Battle of Wilderness. His body was initally buried on the battlefield near Orange Plank Road by his captain, Jonas Lipps. Even though Jonas marked the grave and knew where it was, Lipps was captured before any formal marking (a tombstone) could be done for the gravesite.
Eventually, Jessee's body was removed, along with other fallen Confederate soldiers, to the cemetery in Fredricksburg and buried in a mass grave. Jessee had, shortly before his death, announced in a letter to the Wise County paper, his intention to be on the ballot of the upcoming election for Wise County as Commissioner of Revenue.
According to an account by Jonas Lipps: May 5, 1864: Taken up the line of march at day break and engaged the enemy at the Battle of the Wilderness at about 2 o'clock and Gen. Jones was killed and I witnessed his remains appearance. May 6, 1864: Lay in line of battle and fortified, and skirmished with the enemy, and burried Jesse Horn, and marked his grave.
