bold and dashing advance of the Confederates no doubt convinced the Federals it was the advance of a large force that would attack them the next day, and caused their hasty retreat. Our troops took possession of the town and held it several weeks. This victory added fresh glory to Dickison's command, and inspired in them the hope of future brilliant achievements to be crowned with like success. By instructions of Gen. Braxton Bragg, Maj.-Gen. Patton Anderson was directed to report to General Hood for duty in the field, and he left Florida on the 26th of July, 1864. On his arrival at Atlanta he was assigned to command of his old division. Gen. John K. Jackson was ordered to the command of the district of Florida, and he remained on duty until the 30th of September, when he was succeeded by Gen. William Miller, of the First regiment of Florida volunteers, who had been relieved from duty as commandant of conscripts. Encouraged by the success of the expedition against our posts at
hree brigades became fully engaged, Wilcox's, Perry's and Wright's. Colonel Jayne's Forty-eighth Mississippi, of Posey's brigade, had been thrown forward as skirmishers and lost heavily, supposing that the brigade proper would follow on in support, but for some reason it did not, nor did Mahone's on the left. While marching through a piece of woods to his proper place, on the 2d, Wilcox became engaged with the enemy and soon repulsed him. About 6 p. m., too late to co-operate with McLaws and Hood, though no blame can attach to the brigadiers, the several brigades in the division were ordered to advance to the attack in the order given above. Wilcox moved forward promptly, followed by Lang, who in his turn was followed by Wright. Each brigade fought bravely and desperately, drove the enemy back in its front and ran over several batteries and heaps of slain; but each in its turn was compelled, after almost unparalleled losses, to abandon the enterprise of carrying the impregnable posi
ery, when the right was driven in by a destructive fire of grape and canister. At this crisis the brigade was ordered to reinforce Brigadier-General Robertson, of Hood's command, about a half mile distant. Colonel Trigg then obliqued to the right, bringing the front of the brigade to the cornfield fence, where they sustained a msboro, where they participated in the battles of August 31st and September 1st. On the retreat they skirmished at Lovejoy station, Bearcreek and Palmetto. During Hood's campaigns against Sherman's communications the Florida soldiers assisted in the capture of Dalton and the blockhouse in Mill Creek gap, skirmished at Decatur, All Bullock was wounded. Another severe fight followed on the Wilkinson pike, near Murfreesboro, and the brigade moved to Nashville in time to do gallant service as Hood's line was crumbling under the assault of Thomas' legions. In his report of this campaign General Bate commends the service of Colonel Bullock and his brigade, st
ct and for greater convenience in organizing the reserve forces, upon which we will have to depend in great measure for the defense of important localities. It will not be practicable to carry on offensive operations, either against the regular organized force of the enemy within the district, or the deserters and disloyals who infest certain remote localities. The best that can be done will be to defend points of greatest importance. With this view I have disposed the cavalry as follows: Hood's battalion and three companies Fifth Florida battalion in middle and west Florida, to picket the coast and operate in the disloyal neighborhoods. The Second Florida cavalry and four companies Fifth battalion Florida cavalry in east Florida, in front of Jacksonville and up the St. John's river on the west side, as high as Fort Butler, for the purpose of keeping observation on the enemy's force in that vicinity. It will be readily perceived that this force is wholly inadequate to the protect
e was promoted to major-general and was assigned to command of the district of Florida. After serving five months in that capacity he was ordered to report to General Hood at Atlanta, Ga., in July, 1864, and on his arrival was assigned to his old division, which he commanded in the battle of Ezra Church, during the siege, and unhrough the faithfulness of a driver who took him in a commissary wagon after the last train had left. He was unfit for duty during the subsequent campaigns of General Hood. Soon after the army was ordered to North Carolina, his wound being partially healed, he started to rejoin his brigade; but his progress being interfered with. The works at the Chattahoochee, which Sherman declared were the best he had ever seen, were constructed under his supervision. Upon the removal of Johnston General Hood made Shoup his chief of staff. After the fall of Atlanta he was relieved at his own request. He was the author of a pamphlet urging the enlistment of negro t
