<– The famous sculpture by Cyrus E. Dallin, “Captured, But Not Conquered,” that played a large part in the third Liberty Loan Drive. This statue stands in the Alexander County Library history room in Taylorsville NC.
He was the son of Mr. George B. Hallyburton and Mrs. Prudence Hallyburton of Stony Point NC. Born in Iredell County NC, 19 January 1890, Hallyburton was 27 years old when he was captured during a trench raid. He survived the war, came home and wrote a book “Shoot and Be Damned” which gives in vivid detail the treatment of the prisoners. Hallyburton’s book was published in 1932. From his book, comes this quote: “Hard-boiled Hallyburton, crap-shooter and man killer, seen in the flesh by jeering Heinies, was to be exhibited in stone by dollar-a-year and five-minute men back home!”
