as Lieutenant-Colonel, and Julius Mills as Major, with Robert Stark Means as Adjutant. This regiment's first service was on the coast of South Carolina, but it was to be its fortune, with the rest of its brigade, first under Evans, then under Elliot and then under Wallace, to serve in almost every State in the Confederacy. It belonged to what might be called, not disrespectfully, the tramp brigade. It saw service in South Carolina. It fought in Virginia, Maryland, North Carolina and Missi‘64.

Captain Markoe's rolls show the employment of seventy-six men, of which number he lost through casualties as large a per cent. as any command in the action. Twelve of his men did nothing but read the enemy's papers.
