Private Jesse H. Hutchins joined the Confederate Army five days after the South bombarded Union-held Fort Sumter in Charleston, S.C. He enlisted on April 15, 1861. His unit, Company A, 5th Alabama Battalion, was initially sent to Florida. It then moved to join Gen. Robert E. Lee and the Army of Northern Virginia.

Hutchins was at virtually every major Civil War battle in the East: Seven Pines, Gaines Mill, Malvern Hill, the second battle of Manasses or Bull Run, Antietam, Chancellorsville, Gettysburg, the Wilderness, Spotsylvania, Cold Harbor, Winchester and Petersburg. He was shot and killed on the evening of April 8, 1865, in a skirmish with Union cavalry outside Appomattox Court House. He died just hours before Lee surrendered to Lt. Gen. Ulysses S. Grant in the McLean House in Appomattox Court House on April 9. He had survived 1,454 days of the Confederacy. He was among the last of 630,000 deaths and 1 million casualties of the Civil War. Today Hutchins is buried 500 yards west of the reconstructed McLean House in the Appomattox Confederate Cemetery. He is among 18 Confederate soldiers and one unknown Union soldier in the cemetery.
