Southern Historical Society Papers, Volume 11. (ed. Reverend J. William Jones), General Beauregard's report of the battle of Drury's Bluff. (search)
the bravest. Captain Thorpe, of Elliott's battalion, the advance, charged with his company through a regiment of Federal infantry, scattering them to the four winds. He received a severe though not mortal wound in that charge. Placing a sufficient force at Elkin's Ferry to hold in check any further advance until it could be reinforced, Cabell's and Greene's brigades were camped so as to reach in time any of the fords yet liable to be crossed by the main body of the Federal army. The 3d of April was passed by the enemy in closing up to the river with his main force. His point of crossing was not yet ascertained, and Burbridge's regiment of Greene's brigade, under Lieutenant-Colonel Preston, was thrown forward to make a forced reconnoissance at Elkin's Ferry. Late in the day, after having driven in the advanced posts on the south side of the river with sharp skirmishing, the enemy was discovered in heavy masses. Yet during that day his main body still remained on the north bank

of our Lord. After inspection, I mechanically followed the crowd, and soon found myself seated in the house of God. The preacher dwelt upon the goodness of God, and made an urgent appeal to the soldiers to cease cursing and blaspheming the name of their Creator and best friend. March 31st.—My company is on picket to-day. I was excused from duty on the ground of sickness. Remained in camp all day, and spent the time in reading a temperance novel. April 2nd.—The enemy are reported advancing, and are said to be only five miles away. If the report is correct, we may look for warm work to-morrow. Am feeling quite unwell, but hope to report for duty before we are ordered to meet the enemy. April 3d.—The regiment is under marching orders, and the sick are to be sent by rail to Corinth. I am not well enough to march, and am compelled to go to Corinth with the invalid corps. I hope, however, to rejoin the regiment before they meet the foe. Dulce et decorum est pro patria
