III. the position of the University in North Carolina in 1861. When we come to study the influence of this University on North Carolina itself, it will be seen that that influence was all powerful. The first alumnus to attain the Governor's chair was William Miller in 1814. Between this date and the deposition of Governor Vance in 1866, no less than fourteen out of twenty governors were University men-Miller, Branch, Burton, Owen, Swain, Spaight, Morehead, Graham, Manly, Winslow, Bragg, Ellis, Clark, and Vance. They filled the chair thirty-eight years out of the fifty-two. The influence of the University was not less paramount in North Carolina at the outbreak of the war in 1861 than it had been in former years. The governor in 1861s, John W.

He was elected to the forty-seventh, forty-ninth, fiftieth, fifty-first, fifty-second, fifty-third and fifty-fourth congresses. Upon my arrival at Corinth, March 9, 1862, says General Wheeler, I was assigned to the command of a brigade and was sent to the front near Monterey as the advance guard of our army (War Records, Vol. 10, part 2, page 307). While performing this duty I reconnoitered close up to the

rtillery. Aggregate— 529 regiments and eighty-five battalions of infantry; 127 regiments and forty-seven battalions of cavalry; eight regiments and one battalion of partisan rangers; five regiments and six battalions of heavy artillery, and 261 batteries of light artillery—in all, equivalent to 764 regiments of ten companies each. Colonel Fox says: The severity of the losses among the Confederates, and the heroic persistency with which they would stand before the enemies musketry, becomes apparent in studying the official returns of various regiments. In the report for 1865-66, made by General James B. Fry, United States Provost-Marshal-General, there is a statement of Confederate losses, as compiled from the muster-rolls on file in the Bureau of Confederate Archives. The returns are incomplete, and nearly all the Alabama rolls are missing; still, the figures are worth noting, as they show that at least 74,524 were killed or died of wounds, and that 52,297 died of disea
