Sargeant James William Baker served the full four years of the Civil War with the Confederate army and was wounded in 1864. He was at Appomattox, Virginia, when Lee surrendered. He was said to have been a personal friend of the commander-in-chief of the confederate army and of General Stonewall Jackson.

He enlisted in June 1861 at Harpers Ferry and served under Colonel Terrill and Captain Hibbs. He fought in the Wilderness Campaign and in the Battle of Gettysburg.

He was a historian of note and wrote interesting articles which were published in magazines and newspapers throughout Tazewell county.

James married Fannie Ellis Baker, his first cousin. They were both school teachers in Tazewell County, Virginia for many years.
