Long before these latter regiments were all mustered in, the earlier ones had received their bloody christenings. Some one has said that in the drama of secession North Carolina's accession was the epilogue, but it is equally true that in the tr
rne. The total Federal losses during this expedition were 591 killed and wounded. Rebellion Records, XVIII, p. 60. The total Confederate loss, as reported by General Smith, was 339. The North Carolina losses, with the exception of the Sixty-first regiment, from which there is no report, were 40 killed and 177 wounded. During the operations mentioned above, North Carolina was represented in the Western army by the following regiments: Twenty-ninth, Col. R. B. Vance; Thirty-ninth, Col. D. Coleman; Fifty-eighth, Col. J. B. Palmer; Sixty-second, Col. R. G. A. Love; Sixty-fourth, Col. L. M. Allen; Sixty-ninth (Thomas' legion), Col. W. H. Thomas; Fifth cavalry battalion, Maj. A. H. Baird; Seventh cavalry battalion, Lieut.-Col. G. N. Folk, and Lieutenant-Colonel Walker's cavalry battalion. In September the Sixty-ninth regiment (Thomas' legion) was ordered to Powell's valley. This regiment was raised in the mountains of North Carolina and had in it two companies of Cherokee India
e North Carolina participants in the two days of bloodshed. These five regiments were as follows: The Twenty-ninth, Col. W. B. Creasman; the Thirty-ninth, Col. David Coleman; the Fifty-eighth, Col. J. B. Palmer; the Sixtieth, Lieut.-Col. J. M. Ray and Capt. J. T. Weaver, and the Sixth cavalry, Col. G. N. Folk. How nobly thesean honorable position on the right of the Confederate line, closely followed by the Twenty-ninth infantry, who fought over substantially the same ground. Col. David Coleman, of the Thirty-ninth infantry, who assumed command of McNair's brigade after that officer was wounded on Sunday evening, reported that his regiment charged rial to be erected. We carefully collated all evidence on both sides, and at last General Stewart directed us to put up a tablet setting forth the exploit as Colonel Coleman reported it. This was the only case in which both General Boynton and myself were not personally cognizant of each achievement of North Carolina troops as set
s of his followers. In General Ewell's corps were these North Carolina troops: Daniel's brigade, composed of the Thirty-second, Colonel Brabble; Forty-fifth, Colonel Boyd; Fifty-third, Colonel Owens, and Second battalion, Major Hancock; Ramseur's brigade, made up of the Second, Colonel Cox; the Fourth, .Colonel Grimes; the Fourteenth, Colonel Bennett, and the Thirtieth, Colonel Parker; Johnston's brigade (absent the first day), constituted as follows: Fifth, Colonel Garrett; Twelfth, Colonel Coleman; Twentieth, Colonel Toon; Twenty-third, Colonel Blacknall; and the First, Colonel Brown, and Third, Colonel Thruston, in Steuart's brigade. Ewell's battle of the 5th was entirely distinct from Hill's fight of the same day. As Ewell advanced—Jones' brigade in front, followed by Battle's and Doles' on Battle's right—Griffin's division of Warren's corps, composed of the brigades of Ayres, Bartlett and Barnes, fell upon Jones and drove him back. Jones' men somewhat disordered Battle's l

The limits of this sketch of the North Carolina troops forbid a detailed account of the services of the four regiments in the Tennessee and Georgia campaigns. These regiments were, so far as official reports seem to show, the Twenty-ninth, Lieut.-Col. B. S. Proffitt; the Thirty-ninth, Col. D. Coleman; the Fifty-eighth, Maj. T. F. Dula, and the Sixtieth, Col. J. B. Palmer. For awhile Colonel Palmer was in command of Reynolds' brigade. During his absence, that regiment was commanded by Lieut.-Col. J. T. Weaver, whose gallant life was given up for his State. Through all the trying marches, hungry days and nights, stubborn fighting and nerve-testing vicissitudes, these noble men kept close to their colors, and illustrated by their patient endurance and cheerful obedience that they
