     John Kilgore served in the Nickelsville Spartan Band Roster, Company E 48th Virginia Regiment CSA.2 He was born on Jul 23, 1840.3,2 He died on Feb 16, 1862 S.P. McConnell's letter to Charles Kilgore on the death of his son, John D. Kilgore

As the year 1862 opened, the 48th Virginia was assigned to Colonel William Gilham's brigade of Brigadier General William Loring's Army of the Northwest. General Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson had been given command of the Valley District in November. Jackson decided to combine his Army of the Valley District with Loring's small army and march on the little town of Romney which was the strategic key to the upper Shenandoah Valley.
Jackson's forces began their winter campaign on a pleasant New Year's Day, 1862, "springtime in its mildness". Conditions quickly deteriorated. A month of rain, sleet, bad roads, hunger, sickness, and misery followed.
During one march, Loring was so infuriated by an order from Jackson to keep his men moving that he announced, "By God, Sir, this is the damnedest outrage ever perpetrated in the annals of history, keeping my men out here in the cold without food." Brigadier General Richard B. Garnett had his first of several run ins with Jackson when he ordered his famished troops fed after 30 hours of continuous marching. Jackson took exception, stating that there was, "not time for that." One officer wrote that, "Two battles would not have done as much injury as hard weather and exposure have effected."
The march of January 7-8 was one of the worst. The temperature dropped to 20 degrees below zero. The soldiers marched over a road of ice covered with six inches of snow. Men were constantly "hitting the road with a thud like that of a pile driver." Horses also fell constantly. An artilleryman remembered that "from one horse's knees there were icicles of blood which reached nearly to the ground." By the time the men arrived at their destination, "every soldier's clothing was a solid cake of ice," and there were "icicles two inches long hanging from the hair and whiskers of every man."
By the end of January, the 48th Virginia was posted in the cold and dreary town of Romney which stank from tons of rotting beef left by the Yankees. Many of the officers from Loring's command petitioned that they be moved back to Winchester. Jefferson Davis agreed, and they were ordered back. Jackson tendered his resignation for this "interference". Jackson was later placated and his resignation withdrawn.
Jackson sent Col. Gilham back to his classroom at VMI. Loring was removed to Georgia. Garnett would have a more critical run in with Jackson at Kernstown. Many of the men openly jeered Jackson.
And a young farm boy, far from his Scott Couny home, died from the effects of the march in a military hospital in Winchester on February 16, 1862.

     Reverend Robert Kilgore was born in 1765.2 He married Jean Porter, daughter of Patrick Porter and Susannah Walker, circa 1785.1,2 Reverend Robert Kilgore died in 1854.2 He was buried at Nickelsville, Scott, Virginia, US; near the entrance of in the Nickelsville Cemetery.3 The Kilgore Fort House is the only fort still standing of the twelve structures that once extended from Castlewood to Cumberland Gap along the Wilderness Road. The buildings protected early settlers from roaming bands of Indians during the late 1700s, at which time may similarly fortified houses could be found dotting the frontier.
Around 1790, Reverend Robert “Robin” Kilgore built this fort on the shaded bank of Copper Creek to shield his wife and family from Indian attacks. He constructed the building from white oak log timbers, notched and joined at the ends, then chinked between with mud. Doors were made of heavy timbers that could be secured from the inside with a heavy bar. Although later inhabitants cut out windows, the original fort had only small gun ports in the walls.
The Kilgore Fort House was built with defense in mind, but was also a family’s home. A stone fireplace and chimney were used for cooking and heating, and the building was divided up into two stories with two rooms on each floor. If occupants were attacked, they first retreated to the back room on the first floor, then could further retreat upstairs to make their final defensive stand in the northeast room.
The Kilgore Fort House was restored in 1973 to 1974 and is privately owned. Visitors are welcome to view the historic landmark from the road, two miles west of Nickelsville, on highway 71.
