Still confused on your terminology (just because I don't understand it doesn't mean it doesn't exits). I'm not aware of a viral connection with GC or of it converting into a viral form.

Most of my information on Hill's early years and exploits comes from Waugh's Class of 1846. Waugh does a very good job in telling us about Jackson, Hill, McClellen, etc while they were at West Point. His opinion was that many of the key players at Appomatox and the drawing up of the surrender terms were acquaintances and classmates at WP which resulted in more favorable terms for the south and caused a smoother, less violent surrender.
