Lebanon News, Lebanon, VA

June 6, 1902

Our true friend, W. P. Cooper, of Castlewood, was the first caller at the NEWS office Tuesday morning, leaving one dollar for the paper he is sending to his brother in Missouri, and $2 sent us by C. E. Branson. Uncle Billey was one of the bravest of brave soldiers, having served in the confederate army until shot out of the service at Chancelorsville. He also participated in the battles at Cheat Mountain, Capen Bridge, Curnstown and was in the seven days fight at Richmond.
