Notes


Author of Recollections of Virginia, by Maury, Dabney Herndon, 1822-1900. Electronic Edition. http://docsouth.unc.edu/maury/maury.html.
"At the age of seventeen I entered the University of Virginia, and enjoyed the life of freedom from home surveillance, and the great pleasure of association with men well reared and educated, matured in their purposes, and studying earnestly in the fine professional schools which then, as now, were recognized as among the highest in the country. Johnson Barbour, Randolph Tucker, Robert Withers, John S. Barbour, Stage Davis, Winter Davis, Hunter Marshall, George Randolph, Confederate Secretary of War, Honorable Volney E. Howard, R. L. Dabney, and many another who made his mark in life and has gone over the river, were there then."


"Dabney Herndon Maury was born in Fredericksburg, Virginia, on May 21, 1822. Following the death of his father, he and his brother were raised by their uncle, Matthew Fontaine Maury (Confederate naval commander and the "Pathfinder of the Seas"). After graduating from the University of Virginia and studying law, which he did not find to his liking, Maury enrolled at West Point. He distinguished himself with one brevet during the Mexican War (where a musket ball shattered his left arm, crippling it permanently) and then returned to West Point, where he served as an instructor for five years.
When the War Between the States began, Maury was serving as an assistant adjutant general of the Department of New Mexico on the frontier. He turned in his resignation early in May of 1861 but was discharged from the U.S. Army on May 25 for "treasonable designs." Maury returned east to Richmond, where he was given commissions as a captain of cavalry in the Confederate Army, a colonel of cavalry in Virginia's forces, and a lieutenant colonel in the provisional army. He served on the staff of Major General Theophilus Holmes until February of 1862, when he was given the rank of colonel and sent to the Trans-Mississippi Department to become chief of staff for Major General Earl Van Dorn. Maury spent the War in the Western theatre, taking part in the battles of Pea Ridge, Iuka, and Corinth.


In April of 1863, Jefferson Davis sent Maury to Knoxville to take command of the Department of East Tennessee. Two weeks later, he was ordered to Mobile, Alabama, to replace Major General Simon Bolivar Buckner as commander of the District of the Gulf, where he remained until the end of the War.


Maury returned to his native Virginia after the War and opened the Classical and Mathematical Academy for boys in Fredericksburg. When he tired of teaching, he relocated to New Orleans, Louisiana, where he became an express agent and eventually ran a naval stores manufacturing company. In 1868, he founded the Southern Historical Society, which he served as chairman for 20 years. During his tenure, he made available to the U.S. War Records Office all of the Society's extensive holdings (the War Records Office returned the favor). The fruits of Maury's labors -- the Southern Historical Society Papers -- today provide a wealth of knowledge for serious researchers and amateur historians alike.


In 1885, Maury was appointed U.S. minister to Colombia, a post he held until 1889. He returned to the States at the end of his term and lived with his son in Peoria, Illinois, until his death on January 11, 1900. He is buried in Fredericksburg, Virginia.


Arthur W. Bergeron, Jr., writing in The Confederate General, says of Maury: One of Maury's men remembered him as "'every inch a soldier,' but then there were not many inches of him. The soldiers called him 'puss in boots' because half of his diminutive person seemed lost in a pair of immense cavalry boots. He was a wise and gallant officer."

"Major-General Dabney Herndon Maury was born at Fredericksburg, Va., May 20, 1822, the son of Capt. John Minor Maury, United States navy, whose wife was the daughter of Fontaine Maury. His descent is from the old Virginia families of Brooke and Minor, and the Huguenot emigrees, the Fontaines and Maurys. He was educated at the classical school of Thomas Harrison, Fredericksburg, studied law at the university of Virginia, and was graduated at West Point in 1846, with the rank of brevet second lieutenant in the mounted rifles. A theater for active service in his profession was awaiting him in Mexico, where he was at once ordered. He conducted himself with soldierly valor in this war, particularly at the siege of Vera Cruz and the battle of Cerro Gordo, where he was severely wounded, and received the brevet of first lieutenant for gallantry. In further recognition of his services he was presented with a sword by the citizens of Fredericksburg and the legislature of Virginia. For several years subsequent to the Mexican war he was detailed for service at the United States military academy, first as assistant professor of geography, history and ethics, and afterward as assistant professor of infantry tactics. In 1852 he was transferred to frontier duty in Texas in which he continued, with promotion to first lieutenant mounted rifles, until 1858, when he was appointed superintendent of the cavalry school at Carlisle, Pa. From April 15, 1860, until the outbreak of the Confederate war he was assistant adjutant-general, with the rank of brevet captain, in New Mexico. He promptly acted with his State in 1861, and was commissioned captain, corps of cavalry, C. S. A., to date from March 16th. Subsequently he was promoted colonel, was appointed adjutant-general of the army at Manassas, and when Gen. Earl Van Dorn was assigned to command the Trans-Mississippi department, early in 1862, he became his chief of staff and adjutant-general. In his report of the battle of Elkhorn Tavern, General Van Dorn wrote: "Colonel Maury was of invaluable service to me both in preparing for and during the battle. Here, as on other battlefields where I have served with him, he proved to be a zealous patriot and true soldier; cool and calm under all circumstances, he was always ready, either with his sword or pen. " Maury was promptly promoted brigadier-general. He accompanied Van Dorn to the consultation with A. S. Johnston and Beauregard at Corinth previous to the battle of Shiloh, and subsequently was transferred with the main Confederate force east of the Mississippi, where his service was afterward given. When Price took command of the army of the West at Tupelo, he commanded one of its two divisions, including the brigades of John C. Moore, W. L. Cabell and C. W. Phifer, and the cavalry of F. C. Armstrong. Little of Maryland, commanding the other division, fell at Iuka, where Maury was held in reserve, and afterward served as rear guard, repelling pursuit. About a fortnight later he commanded the center in the battle of Corinth, against Rosecrans, and gallantly engaged the enemy, who was driven from his entrenchments and through the town. During the subsequent retirement he defended the rear, fighting spiritedly at Hatchie's bridge. He was promoted major-general in November, 1862, and on December 30th, arrived before Vicksburg from Grenada, to support S. D. Lee, who had repulsed Sherman's attack at Chickasaw bayou, and was assigned to command of the right wing. He continued in service here, his troops being engaged at Steele's bayou and in the defeat of the Yazoo Pass expedition, until he was ordered to Knoxville, April 15th, to take command of the department of East Tennessee. A month later he was transferred to the command of the district of the Gulf. In this region, with headquarters at Mobile, he continued to serve until the end of the war. During the siege of Atlanta, in command of reserve troops, he operated in defense of the Macon road. In August, i864, in spite of a gallant struggle, the defenses of Mobile bay were taken, and in March and April, 1865, Maury, with a garrison about 9,000 strong, defended the city against the assaults of Canby's army of 45,000 until, after heavy loss, he retired without molestation to Meridian. But the war was now practically over, and on May 4th, his forces were included in the general capitulation of General Taylor. Subsequently he made his home at Richmond, Va. He has given many valuable contributions to the history of the war period, and in 1868 organized the Southern historical society, the collections of which he opened to the government war records office, securing in return free access to that department by ex-Confederates. In 1878 he was a leader in the movement for the reorganization of the volunteer troops of the nation, and until 1880 served as a member of the executive committee of the National Guard association of the United States. In i886 he was appointed United States minister to Columbia, a position he held until June 22, 1889. Since then he has been occupied in literary pursuits, being the author of a school history of Virginia, and other works."
Confederate Military History, Vol. III, pp.636-638


He had at least two sons 1. William Lewis Maury & 2. Dabney Maury.
