Biographical Note

Vannoy Hartrog (Van) Manning was born near Raleigh, North Carolina, July 26, 1839. In 1841, his family moved to Mississippi. Manning attended the University of Nashville and in 1860, moved to Arkansas, where he studied for the law. He was admitted to the Arkanas bar in 1861, and set up a practice at Hamburg. In May 1861, he and Dr. W. H. Tebbs recruited and organized the 3rd Arkansas Infantry. The unit was initially turned down for service in the regular Confederate Army, but was accepted with the intervention of Arkansan Albert Rust. The unit served through the end of the war. Manning was wounded and taken prisoner at the Battle of the Wilderness and spent the last year of the war as a prisoner. Following the war, he practiced law in Holly Springs, Mississippi, and also served three terms in Congress. He later practiced law in Washington, DC. He died November 3, 1892.
