Sam Davis American Hero
“Sam Davis (October 6, 1842 – November 27, 1863) is called the Boy Hero of the Confederacy. He was born in Rutherford County, Tennessee. He served in various combat roles in the Confederate army from 1861-63 during the American Civil War. As a Confederate courier he was captured around November 20, 1863. Suspected of espionage, he was executed by the Union Army after a captivity of only seven days.” – Wikipedia
“If I had a thousand lives to live, I would give them all rather than betray a friend or the confidence of my informer.”
