Pvt. James M. Miller Marker

633 Taxahaw Rd.
Pageland, SC 29728

James M. Miller is honored, not for leading any attacks against the enemy, nor of bravery in the heat of the battle. The story of James M. Miller is one of a Confederate soldier willingly giving up his life to save the life of another fellow soldier. Legend has it that James M. Miller of older age, stepped forward to take the place of a young man who was the unfortunate winner of a draw ordered by General Sherman. The death was the unwarranted punishment for killing a Union solder.
