l Nelson as lieutenant-colonel and himself as major. With this battalion he served during the rest of the war. On the 14th July, 1863, he was complimented in general orders by General Beauregard for leading successfully an attack on Morris Island in which he was wounded by a bayonet. Going to Virginia with Hagood's brigade in the spring of 1864, on the 14th May, preceding the battle at Drury's Bluff, he drove back a line of battle with his skirmishers. He was wounded in the battle on the 16th May, but continued on the field during the whole day. At Petersburg, on 14th June, he again led, at night, a line of skirmishers of Hagood's brigade and drove back the advance of General Baldy Smith; again, on the 18th June, he led another attack.

and went to the east before my arrival. I had been informed that they would cooperate with me, and had expected to find them at their posts with some force already organized. On the contrary, upon my arrival I found myself alone in a county hostile to the South, without an officer of any experience to help me, then or afterwards; without money or supplies of any kind, or the means of getting anything to aid in organizing a military force. My letters to Colonel R. S. Garnett of May 14th and 16th, will show what progress had been made at those dates. The extent of the Union feeling may be ascertained by reference to the letters of General R. Latham to Hon. Simon Cameron, Secretary of War, dated May 8th, and Major Boykin to General Lee, May 10, 1861. Whilst one of my first companies was rendezvoused at Fetterman, about a mile north of Grafton, on the night of May 22d it was attacked by a Union party from Grafton, and in an affair of the pickets Bailey Brown of the Union party was k

Killed: Corpormpany I. Killed: Privates W. M. Rodgers and J. M. Bell. In the engagement at Drewry's Bluff (16th May) the regiment again covered itself with glory. In one charge it captured many of the men, all nces, however, without mentioning three young men, one of whom fell on the 9th and two on the 16th of May. There were other equally noble spirits in the regiment, but I found these three young men sted officers of the regiment procured remounts from the horses of the battery captured on the 16th of May at Drewry's Bluff. A few days afterwards the major was kicked on the leg by his vicious hors
