Wilfred E. Cutshaw, a Virginian with a Virginia Military Institute background, was commissioned a lieutenant of infantry on October 31, 1861 and then promoted to captain of the Jackson Artillery Battery in March 1862. He was wounded and captured in the Shenandoah Valley in May 1862 during “Stonewall” Jackson’s celebrated campaign there and not exchanged until April 1863. Still not fully recuperated from his wound, he served on the VMI staff for part of 1863 and then as the assistant inspector general after Gettysburg for the II Corps of the Army of Northern Virginia in September 1863. Promoted to major on February 2, 1864, he then commanded an artillery battalion in the II Corps for the rest of the war, when not disabled by sickness or wounds. He was wounded at the Battle of Spotsylvania and lost his leg at Sayler’s Creek on April 5, 1865. He worked as an engineer in Richmond after the war.
