Jack May`s Law Office
This photo shows Jack May`s Law Office on Main Street in Tazewell, Virginia. It was located directly across the street from the Tazewell County Courthouse. Professor Perry obtained this photo from the Tazewell County Historical Society. During the years following the Civil War, Jack May was one of Tazewell`s most prominent citizens. He served a term as mayor of the town and helped organize one of its first banks. His law practice was a very successful one.
On several occasions, Tazewell County honored him for his service during the war, and in particular, the bravery he exhibited during Toland`s July 1863 Raid on Wytheville. When he died in 1903, a large crowd attended his funeral.
