Daniel Harvey Hill was the brother-in-law of Thomas J. “Stonewall” Jackson, and like Jackson, he was a deeply religious man who possessed a sarcastic sense of humor. In 1862, D.H. Hill and Union General John Dix agreed upon terms for prisoner exchange, which became known, as the Dix-Hill Cartel. At Antietam, Hill had three horses shot out from under him, and his division saw fierce action at the famous “sunken road.” A respected military leader, his disagreements with Jefferson Davis and Robert E. Lee, made him an underused general. After the Battle of Chickamauga, D.H. Hill condemned General Bragg’s leadership, which resulted in Hill being sidelined for the rest of the war.
This Daniel Harvey Hill mug is part of our Civil War series profiling participants in the War Between the States. Thousands of Confederate and Union soldiers fought in battles such as Bull Run, Antietam, Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, Gettysburg, Vicksburg, Chattanooga, Cold Harbor and Petersburg. We honor their sacrifices by telling their stories.
The biographical History Mugs were created to teach and inspire individuals to learn about our diverse and interesting history. The biographies were researched and written by history enthusiast, Robert Compton. He colorized most of the historic photos and images used on the mugs, which were originally black and white or sepia tone. The images and biographies are imprinted on mugs at his studio in rural Vermont.
