Southwest Virginia lawyer's contemporary account of the Civil War in Southwest Virginia

The Roanoke paper reports here ("Eyewitness account of Civil War action in Southwest Virginia uncovered," 11/9/04) of the new book by James Robertson, "Soldier of Southwestern Virginia: The Civil War Letters of Captain John Preston Sheffey."

Westlaw suggests that J.P. Sheffey in his post-war guise as a lawyer appeared before the Virginia Supreme Court on brief or for argument at least five times between 1886 and 1892.
