Rare CDV of Lt Colonel Gustavus A Bull of the 35th Georgia Infantry killed at Seven
Pines.  "Lieutenant Colonel Gustavus A. Bull was mustered into service as junior
second lieutenant in the LaGrange Light Guards, Company B, Fourth Georgia
Regiment,  April 26, 1861. Resigned and was promoted lieutenant-colonel of the
Thirty-fifth Georgia, October 15, 1861. He was born in LaGrange, Ga.,  1835, entered
Franklin College and was graduated with the first honor in  1854. After teaching
school for several years, read law, and located in
Newnan, Ga. He soon won a high reputation in his chosen profession, and in
1860 was one of the Breckinridge electors. Senator B.H. Hill pronounced him
the most promising young man in the South. He was a strict disciplinarian,
but always courteous and kind to his men and thoughtful to their comfort. On
the 31st of May, 1862, on the battle-field of Seven Pines, this bright star
went down in blood. Early in the engagement General Pettigrew was badly
wounded and the command of the brigade devolved upon Colonel E.L. Thomas.
Lieutenant-Colonel Bull then assumed command of his regiment and led it in a
desperate charge upon a battery which was pouring upon them a murderous fire
of grape and cannister. The column halted and began to waver, when, riding
in front of it, Colonel Bull gave the command, "forward," and appealed to the
men to follow him. At that moment he fell mortally wounded .He died the
following day and was buried by the enemy and fills an unknown grave. The
whole regiment admired and loved him. One of the members expressed the
sentiments of all when he wrote to Colonel Bull's father: "The crushed and
broken hearts that mourn the loss of the hero of the Thirty-fifth Georgia are not
confined to your family circle." General Pettigrew, commanding the brigade, said: "If
there was a better officer in the army than Colonel Bull, and one to whom the prospect
of distinction in any department of life was brighter, I did not know him. He was indeed
a loss to his country." The soil of the Old Dominion will forever be sacred because in it
rests in their bloody gray so many of the hero martyrs of the
South. As long as the South is trod by men worthy to be free, all honor will
be accorded her sons of the sixties, and heroism and devotion will be an
example and inspiration for all time to come.".  Rarely does one come across
spectacular views like with a fancy presentation sword of a Gallant officer killed early
in the War.
