Family History

Built in 1865, this was the home of  General William Joseph Hardee ( 1815-1873). The Confederate Army Lieutenant General was a 1838 graduate of the United States Military Academy at West Point, New York.  He went on to become a distinguished United States Army officer who served in the Mexican conflicts and later a tactics instructor and commandant of cadets at West Point.

At the start of the US Civil War, he resigned his commission as Lieutenant Colonel, to serve in the Confederate Army of Tennessee. Appointed first as Colonel of CSA Cavalry, then Brigadier General of the Upper District of Arkansas and promoted Major General commanding the 1st Division, Central Army of Kentucky in December 1861, he was known as “Old Reliable.”  Hardee was promoted Lieutenant General in October 1862 and commanded the Armies of the Department of Mississippi, Tennessee and South Carolina, until he surrendered his corps on April 26, 1865. After the war he settled on his second wife’s plantation in Alabama before moving to Selma.

W.J. Hardee

 

Hardee  lived in this home with his second wifeMary Foreman Lewis Hardee (1838-1875) and the children from his first marriage, Anna, William and Elizabeth. During his time in Selma, he served as president of the Selma and Meridian Railroad.

He only lived in the home for eight years before his death at age 58 while on vacation in West Virginia.
