the deceased soldier. That every non-commissioned officer, private, or other person, who has been, or shall hereafter be, discharged from the army by reason of wounds received in battle, on skirmish, on picket, or in action, or in the line of duty, shall be entitled to receive the same bounty as if he had served out his full term. That all persons of color, who were enlisted and mustered into the military service of the United States in South-Carolina, by and under the direction of Major-General Hunter and Brigadier-General Saxton, in pursuance of the authority from the Secretary of War, dated August twenty-fifth, 1862, that the persons so received into service, and their officers, to be entitled to and receive the same pay and rations as are allowed by law to other volunteers in the service; and in every case where it shall be made to appear to the satisfaction of the Secretary of War that any regiment of colored troops has been mustered into the service of the United States, under
l quarter of a mile to our right and front, near Dogan's house. I led up the Zouaves for this important service, leaving the Thirty-eighth under its gallant and experienced Colonel Hobart Ward. Ricketts was soon ordered to take a new position near the Henry house. The Zouaves followed in support, and finally formed line on the right flank of the battery with two companies in reserve. Up to this time the enemy had fallen back, but now he formed the remains of his brigades engaged with Hunter in the morning, viz., Bee's, Barton's and Evans's, in a new line upon Jackson's brigade of fresh troops, making all together six thousand five hundred infantry, thirteen pieces of artillery, and Stuart's cavalry, according to General Beauregard's report. This force was posted in the belt of woods which skirted the plateau southwardly, and lying in the angle formed in that direction, between the Warrenton and Sudley roads, about a mile from the Warrenton road, and with its left resting on th
se action. On land he was busy putting down mortar platforms. His fire was principally from Cohorn mortars at our sharpshooters from the Twentieth South Carolina volunteers and the Charleston battalion, who, armed with Whitworth rifles, caused him serious annoyance. During the night the Eighth North Carolina relieved the Nineteenth Georgia, and a detachment of the Twentieth South Carolina volunteers, Captains Chichester's and Mathews' companies of artillery, relieved Captains Miles' and Hunter's. The different detachments of artillery from light batteries and siege trains were also changed. This work was accomplished, as before, under the direction of Major Motte A. Pringle, Quartermaster, with the assistance of the navy. The enemy having established an annoying picket guard at an unfinished battery at the mouth of Vincent's Creek, he was attacked, at about nine o'clock, by a party from the navy and from the Twenty-fifth South Carolina volunteers, under Lieutenant Commanding W
ers to undergo. They were equal to the occasion. For a moment it appeared that the entire line would be swept away. The gaps that the enemy's artillery ploughed through the ranks were closed up with the coolness and steadiness of veterans of a hundred fields. On my left, Captain D. H. Norwood, and Lieutenants Kennebrow and Moore fell, killed, and Lieutenants Ken and Baily, of the Ninth Arkansas regiment, wounded, while on my right Captain Fulton was killed, and Captain Mitchell and Lieutenants Hunter, Lawler, and Collice, of the Thirty-fifth Alabama regiment, were severely wounded, bravely leading, and by their example inspiring their men with their own unquailing courage. In a few seconds I here lost over a hundred men and officers. To have halted or hesitated would have brought certain destruction upon my command. I ordered bayonets fixed and a charge made upon the battery. The order was obeyed with cheers and yells, and by making a detour to the left, to avoid the deep cut i
the same moment throwing forward a strong reinforcement, the brigade was forced back in some disorder. It was rallied by the efforts of Colonel Breaux, Lieutenant-Colonel Hunter, and other officers, and although it did not further participate in the assault, it maintained its position under a fire from the gunboats and land battet-Colonel Cofer; Seventh Kentucky, Colonel Crossland; and Thirty-fifth Alabama, Colonel Robertson.

Brashear city, June 26, 1863. Briry respectfully, Your obedient servant, Sherod Hunter, Major Baylor's Texas Cavalry, commanding o the gallantry and meritorious services of Major Hunter and the officers commanding the detachmentsin our little flotilla, to Tiger Island. Major Hunter, who had moved under your orders, from the d the defences and the town of Brashear, to Major Hunter, about half-past 7 o'clock on the morning of the twenty-third. Major Hunter's command consisted of about three hundred men from Baylor's, the F[3 more...]
s of Louisiana, in peace or in war, than Henry Watkins Allen. He stood at her dying; and, heart-torn at the sight, he took refuge in Mexico where In 1886, he passed away, an alien on a foreign soil. Lieut.-Col. Samuel Boyd was also severely wounded in the same charge. The vigilant enemy, seeing signs of trouble in their front, threw in strong reinforcements, which forced the brigade back in some confusion. Rallied by the efforts of Colonel Breaux, of the Thirteenth, and LieutenantCol-onel Hunter, Fourth, the Louisiana brigade, although it did not further participate in the assault, bravely maintained a new and hazardous position under fire from the gunboats and from the land-batteries of the enemy. Throughout this movement, Semmes' battery served efficiently. The First division, under Gen. Charles Clark, brigades of Colonel Hunt and Colonel Smith, advancing to the right of the Greenwell Springs road, made a gallant charge, constantly pressing the enemy back until, after several
had collected 53 small craft near the mouth of the Teche, capable of transporting 300 troops across the Atchafalaya. Detachments for these boats were drawn from Vincent's Louisianians, under Major Blair, and from Green's Texans, all under Maj. Sherod Hunter. With such resources the attack on Berwick was made a success. Major was ordered to reach the Boeuf punctually on the morning of June 23d, as Taylor himself would be attacking Berwick at dawn. A gunboat lay in the bay protecting Berwick.nboat, speedily driving her off. The sound of the firing was a veritable surprise to the men behind the earthworks, whence they attempted in nervous haste to serve the heavy guns against the Confederates. Just then, a shot rang out in the rear. Hunter was on time, coming with his 300. Smoke was rising at the station. Taylor saw at once that a train of three engines with many cars was escaping in the dim dawn to carry news to Boeuf. A nod, and Green was on the road, galloping after the runaw
, 1864, while the Overland campaign was in progress, Colonel York was commissioned brigadier-general with temporary rank, and he was assigned to the command of all the Louisiana troops in the army of Northern Virginia. These troops included the heroic remnants of the brigades of Hays and Stafford, one of whom had been killed in battle, and the other severely wounded. When Early's corps was sent to Lynchburg, York's brigade was part of his force. Early was at first very successful, driving Hunter beyond the mountains, marching triumphantly down the valley, clearing it of Federal troops, then crossing the Potomac, defeating Wallace at the Monocacy and advancing to the very suburbs of Washington, giving the people of the North the greatest scare that they had experienced during the whole war. At the battle of Winchester, fought on the 19th of September, 1864, General York was severely wounded, losing an arm, and was thus incapacitated for further service in the field during the campai
Tom Green, meanwhile, with his brigade, including the Fifth Texas, E. Waller's battalion, Fourth and Seventh, and Baylor's regiments, and the Valverde and Nichols' batteries, invested Brashear City, a party of picked men, under the gallant Maj. Sherod Hunter, turning the works. Hunter reported that he charged the works on June 23d with 325 men, and after a fight in which he lost 3 killed and 18 wounded, and the enemy 86, the Federal force of 1,300 surrendered, with 11 cannon, 2,500 stand of smHunter reported that he charged the works on June 23d with 325 men, and after a fight in which he lost 3 killed and 18 wounded, and the enemy 86, the Federal force of 1,300 surrendered, with 11 cannon, 2,500 stand of small arms, and immense quantities of stores. Green then pushed on toward Bayou Boeuf, but before he could reach the place the Federal garrison, already invested by Major, surrendered, according to the report of Gen. Alfred Mouton, to a scouting party under the command of General Green's daring scout, Leander McAnelly. The force consisted of 435 officers and men, with three siege guns, and one 12-pounder. A few days later General Green marched on the strong Federal post at Donaldsonville, wit
