Medal of Honor Winner

SAMUEL SLAVENS

Rank and Organization: Private, Company E, 33d Ohio Infantry. Place and Date: Georgia, April 1862. Entered Service At: Wakefield, Pike County, Ohio. Birth: Pike County, Ohio. Date Of Issue: 28 July 1883.

Citation:

One of the 19 of 22 men (including 2 civilians) who, by direction of Gen. Mitchell (or Buell), penetrated nearly 200 miles south into enemy territory and captured a railroad train at Big Shanty, Ga., in an attempt to destroy the bridges and track between Chattanooga and Atlanta.


 Additional Information

On a hot, Atlanta, June day in 1862 at 4:30 in the afternoon, at southeast corner of Fair Street (now Memorial Drive) and South Park Avenue, Atlanta, GA., Samuel lost his life to the hangman's noose. Being the 180 lbs that he was, Samuel survived the first signal by the hand of Captain G. J. Foreacre to hang the "Union Spies". As with his comrade, William Campbell, alongside on the scaffold, the rope broke and Slavens and Campbell fell to the ground. Samuel struggled to sit up and was given a cup of water. After regaining some composure, two new, readjusted ropes were strung and again Captain Foreacre gave the signal. Samuel and his comrades lost their lives to the Confederate ropes.

An odd fact of the hanging was that Captain G. J. Foreacre who was serving as Provost Marshal of Atlanta at the time, was a native of Ohio.


 Andrews' Raid was a military raid that occurred April 12, 1862, during the Civil War. Volunteers from the Union Army commandeered a passenger train with the locomotive "General" and took it northwards toward Chattanooga, TN, doing as much damage as possible to the vital Western & Atlantic Railroad (W&A). Locomotives of the time normally averaged 15 miles per hour, with short bursts of an average speed of 20 miles per hour. At milepost 116.3, north of Ringgold, GA, just a few miles from Chattanooga, with the locomotive out of fuel, Andrews' men abandoned the General and scattered. Andrews and all of his men were caught.
