A similar gun-boat, the Livingston, Commander Pinckney, also arrived. O iron-clad, and his fleet were all wooden boats, he did not think he could successfully combat her. Liutenants Dunnington, Fry and Carter, of the gun-boats Pontchartrain, Maurapas and Polk, begged Commodore Hollins to allow them to attack the enemyFort Pillow. The gun-boats Maurapas and Pontchartrain had already been sent up White river, where, under the gallant Commanders Fry and Dunnington, they did efficient service. The Livingston and Polk succeeded in getting up the Yazoo river to Liverthe battery below Randolph but a few days, when I received orders to dismount my guns and ship them up White river to Lieutenant Fry. I was then sent to Vicksburg to recruit men for Pinkney's boats. Just before the evacuation of Fort Pillow the C

Doc. 61.-operations of a rebel gunboat. The following is the report of Captain Fry to Major-General Hindman, detailing his operations on the White River from May twenty-second to June sixth. C. S. Gunboat Maurepas, Des Arc, Ark., June 6. General: I arrived at this place on the twenty-second ultimo, with a crew of less than ten men, exclusive of my firemen and coal-passers. It was absolutely necessary, if I proposed doing anything besides frightening the enemy, that I should have the chis place, burnt the house, corn-crib, etc., considering it important as a retaliatory measure. I have taken prisoners several persons who have voluntarily taken the oath of allegiance, arrested suspicious persons, and caused the arrest of a traitor spy named Lewis Smith, who has served in our army, and was greatly trusted. I have the Federal vouchers for his pay in my possession. The visit of my boat will not be without its fruit. . . . Respectfully, your obedient servant, Joseph Fry.

S.A., Agent of the United States War Department for the Collection of military Records The war which was carried on in the United States in 1861-5, called The War of the rebellion, The Civil War, The War of secession, and The War between the States, was one of the greatest conflicts of ancient or modern times. Official reports show that 2,865,028 men were mustered into the service of the United States. The report of Provost-Marshal General Fry shows that of these 61,362 were killed in battle, 34,773 died of wounds, 183,287 died of disease, 306 were accidentally killed, and 267 were executed by sentence. The Adjutant-General made a report February 7, 1869, showing the total number of deaths to be 303,504. The Confederate forces are estimated from 600,000 to 1,000,000 men, and ever since the conclusion of the war there has been no little controversy as to the total number of troops involved.
