Miller, James Madison, born 7 Apr 1816 in Jefferson, Chesterfield County, SC.,
murdered Mar 1865 in Lancaster County, SC. The cold blooded murder of Mr.
James MILLER, a brave Confederate soldier then at home, [ near Big Lynch Creek,
S. C., by the men of Co. H, 30th Illinois ] under the pretense of military
retaliation [ the life of Private Robert M. Woodruff, Co. H, 30th Ill., who
was a regularly detailed forager ] is one of the many unjustifiable atrocities
committed by SHERMAN'S men. A negro happened upon a Federal soldier asleep in
the woods, and, having a great antipathy for the desperadoes who were ruining
his masterís country, picked up a large rock and crushed the soldierís head. No
white person in the world had anything to do with the deed, least of all the
brave Confederate soldiers at home on parole. Yet a number of the old men and
wounded soldiers of the neighborhood were taken up and compelled to draw lots
to see which one should be shot in retaliation for the deed. The lot fell upon
Mr. James MILLER and he was shot like a dog, but of course died like a Southern and
