Hutcherson left home at the age of twelve years and started out to make his own way in the world.His educational advantage were meager.While at home he attended school during the winter in a log-cabin school-house, which was fitted up in the primitive style, with slab benches and with greased paper for windows.At an early age young Hutcherson developed a great fancy for stock, and on leaving home he went to what is now West Virginia and work for stock-mean for a few years.In 1859 he boated on Kanawha river for six months, and his next employment was in an oil factory, where he continued until April, 1861, when the factory shut down.He then enlisted in Company C, Forty-sixth Virginia Confederate Volunteer Infantry, and served until the close of the war.He was captured nine days before General Lee's surrender, at the battle of Hatcher's Run, and was imprisoned at Point Lookout, Maryland, until June 11, 1865.In all his service he was never wounded, but was shot through his clothes several times.He entered the army as a private, was subsequently made corporal and still later promoted to the rank of sergeant.Among the battles in which he participated were those of Cotton Hill, Fort Donelson, and several Skirmishes in front of Richmond.He helped to guard Fort Sumter in the winter 1863-4.IN April of the latter year he was with his command, under Whiting, going north, when they met Beauregard, between Richmond and Petersburg, where they had an engagement with the Union forces, lasting three days, the Confederates being victorious.Following this he was at the siege of Petersburg, and, as above recorded, was captured and imprisoned.
