"Colonel Edwin James Harvie was born near the tidewaters of the
James River in Amelia County, Va. He attended Virginia Military
Institute graduating at the age of twenty. On December 29, 1857
he was promoted to 1st Lieutenant in the United States Army. He
resigned his commission on March 15, 1861 and took up service
for the Confederacy. He became chief quartermaster of the
Virginia forces, later served with Wise's Legion and General
Taliferro's command and was inspector general on the staff of
General Joseph E. Johnston commanding the Army of Northern
Virginia. This gentle warrior fought fifty-four battles for the
South and at every moment of his splendid service he believed
that he could not do otherwise. After the surrender and parole
of Johnston's Army in North Carolina April 26, 1865, Colonel
Harvie at once established himself in business in Richmond, Va.
On the enactment by Congress of the law for compiling "The
Records of the Rebellion" Colonel Harvie was appointed and
assistant to Colonel R. N. Scott USA on that duty. On the
completion of that assignment he received an appointment in the

he held at the time of his death. "He was buried with the
Confederate and Virginia flags crossed on his breast. They were
what he loved best." Such are the words of his daughter."
