Spectacular view of Confederate General Robert B Vance of North Carolina
while being held as Union Prisoner.  "
Vance entered the Confederacy forming the
"Buncombe County Life Guards" (later, Company H of the 29th North Carolina Infantry Regiment).
After training at Camp Patton, in Asheville, Vance was unanimously elected as the regiment's colonel.
The regiment was sent to eastern Tennessee to guard the bridges on the Bristol-Chattanooga road.[14]
They all took up position at the Cumberland Gap, seeing their first real action on March 24, 1862.[2]
They later accompanied Edmund Kirby Smith into Kentucky, and on December 30, 1862, Vance
commanded the brigade of James E. Rains, after his death, at the Battle of Murfreesboro.[14] There
were many casualties in the brigade, with Vance's own horse killed beneath him by a shell.[2] After
the battle, Vance had to step down from his post as he contracted typhoid fever, but he was
commended for his service by General John P. McCown, which led to Jefferson Davis commissioning
him as brigadier general on March 4, 1863.  Capture After a lengthy recovery from his illness, Vance
was placed in charge of the North Carolina–Tennessee mountains under the command of General
Braxton Bragg, with orders to harass the Union flanks and disrupt the flow of enemy supplies.  On
January 14, 1864, he was assigned a mission at Cosby Creek, Tennessee.[14] Vance intercepted a
major supply train going to General Ambrose Burnside's troops near Knoxville, but when he tried to
take the wagons to North Carolina, Vance, and nearly all of his troops, were captured by Sergeant
Everett W. Anderson of the 15th Pennsylvania Cavalry.  Imprisonment Vance was detained at various
Union prisons in Nashville, Louisville, Fort Chase (Ohio), and Fort Delaware until a former prisoner of
Vance's, Reverend Nathaniel G. Taylor, intervened on Vance's behalf, as Vance had treated him well
and, eventually, released him.  President Lincoln issued Vance a special parole, allowing him to buy
clothes for other Confederate soldiers. On March 10, 1865, Lincoln granted Vance a condition full
pardon, allowing him to return to North Carolina, but requiring him not to fight again.
