From the Richmond Whig, 6/2/1862, p. 1, c. 2
DESERVED COMPLIMENT. - The President has conferred upon
Captain Augustus H. Drewry the rank of Major of Artillery, and very properly
continues him on duty at Drewry’s Bluff, (now Fort Drewry.). No single man has
done more to defend Richmond than Major Drewry, and no company deserves to be
recollected and honored more than the men under his command.
