The Atlanta (Georgia) Campaign: May 1 - September 8, 1864., Part I: General Report. (ed. Maj. George B. Davis, Mr. Leslie J. Perry, Mr. Joseph W. Kirkley), chapter 78 (search)
ult, and remained there, occasionally gaining ground upon the enemy's works, and under the destructive fire of the enemy's skirmishers, losing more or less men every day until the 27th, when the brigade was moved to the right and supported the Second Division in the charge made upon the enemy's main works. While behind my own works at that position I witnessed an exhibition of cool courage and devotion to duty which I cannot forbear mentioning, although it did not occur in my command. Captain Leonard, whom I did not know, a signal officer, stationed himself not forty yards in rear of my line, and there received a very severe wound in the hip or back. When I heard that he was wounded I went to him, and found him lying upon his back, pale, and in a tremulous voice reading out, in figures, a message, which an assistant with a flag was transmitting to some other point. He seemed on the point of expiring, but determined to complete his task, and did it, and was then taken off in an amb

Morgan was chief of staff. Warren's (Fifth) corps consisted of four divisions, commanded respectively by Generals C. Griffin, J. C. Robinson, S. W. Crawford, and J. S. Wadsworth. The brigade commanders were Generals J. Barnes, J. J. Bartlett, R. B. Ayres. H. Baxter, L. Cutler, and J. C. Rice; and Colonels Leonard, Dennison, W. McCandless, J. W. Fisher, and Roy Stone. Lieutenant-Colonel H. C. Bankhead, chief of staff; Colonel C. S. Wainwright, chief of artillery. Sedgwick's (Sixth) corps comprised three divisions, commanded respectively by Generals H. G. Wright, G. W. Getty, and H. Prince. The brigade commanders were Generals A. T. A. Torbert, A. Shaler, F. Wheaton, T. H. Neill, A. L. Eustis, and D. A. Russell; and Colonels E. Upton, H. Burnham, and L. A. Grant. Chief of staff, Lieutenant-Col
tured one cannon and caisson and one wagon on the opposite crest of the hill. I then returned and rejoined my battalion, now under command of Lieutenant-Colonel Foy, Twenty-third Kentucky. The regiment behaved most nobly, both officers and men. They all took example from our noble Colonel, who fell before the action was over. They vied with each other in deeds of heroism. I would respectfully recommend to your favorable consideration Captains Trapp, Hooker, Jones, and Patterson; Lieutenants Leonard, Thomas, Varian, Groves, Ward, Kuhlman, and Young; also Doctor Barr. They are efficient officers, and deserve the highest encomiums for their noble conduct. Lieutenant Wollenhaupt, who was killed while gallantly urging his men forward, was a good officer and beloved by all. His loss is severely felt in the regiment. The loss in the regiment was heavy--one officer and eleven men killed, four officers and sixty-two men wounded, making the loss in the regiment since the twenty-third
were invited to conduct the religious exercises. Thus, after the death of their first minister, the inhabitants of Medford took steps to supply their pulpit with candidates; and, after hearing a few, they voted (May 25, 1724) to hear Mr. Turell two sabbaths, and Mr. Lowell one sabbath, and then make a choice. It was usual for the church to nominate the candidate, and for the town to elect him. On one occasion, the Medford church nominated three candidates at the same time. Mr. Nathaniel Leonard (H. C. 1719) was chosen: settlement, one hundred pounds; salary, eighty pounds. Mr. Samuel Dexter was afterwards chosen on the same terms. Both these gentlemen declined. Before this period, however, even as early as Oct. 1, 1722, the town, as a town, passed some resolutions which must have sounded bold to English ears. Voted that they would proceed to the choice of a minister by the majority of votes. Regardless of the church's claim to two votes, here is a true democracy recognized; an

The spirit of the men revived with the consciousness of their immense superiority in numbers and equipment, and it was with good show of reason that Hooker spoke of his army when it took the field, as the finest army on the planet.

re old tomes, but many of them are lexicons, translations, and the customary cribs. At Santa Clara the path of learning is not paved with spikes. Two countrymen of yours, the Padre adds, are on our staff; Professor Dance of Oxford, and Professor Leonard of Cork. Dance professes English literature. Leonard, an Irish genius, professes mathematics, metallurgy, assaying, and other physical sciences. How many Fathers have you in the college? Forty Jesuits, and nineteen lay brothers; Leonard, an Irish genius, professes mathematics, metallurgy, assaying, and other physical sciences. How many Fathers have you in the college? Forty Jesuits, and nineteen lay brothers; fiftynine in all. But we have branches of the company in other towns; one branch at San Jose, with five Jesuits, and a second branch at San Francisco, where Father Massenata superintends a school. The Fathers keep their college gay and winsome, catching their Hybrid pupils through the sense of sight. It is their wisdom to be popular. A Jesuit planted the first vine in Santa Clara, a Jesuit pressed the first grapes in California. Mission grapes bring high prices in the market, and Mission

About this time, however, the battle of Chancellorsville occurred, and we were again stationed near Hamilton's Crossing (three miles from that place and three from Fredericksburg). The work now commenced in earnest again, the sheaves were numbered by hundreds, and the number of inquirers was so great that it was impossible to talk with them all. By this time we had the earnest co-operation of Brothers Lomax and Gordon, privates in the Twelfth Mississippi Regiment, and Brothers Morrison and Leonard, of the Nineteenth. The two former, ministers of the Baptist, and of the latter, the second, Cumberland Presbyterian, and the first, Old School Presbyterian; also of Brother Duke, chaplain Nineteenth, Methodist Episcopal Church, South. Duke at this time received the appointment of captain of scouts, and went to Mississippi. Rev. A. E. Garrison, sergeant of the Forty-eighth Regiment also came forward about this time and co-operated. These meetings were now interrupted by the Gettysburg

ady there have been upwards of thirty conversions. Most of them have joined the Church. There are yet a large number of inquirers. The moral tone of the regiment seems rapidly changing for the better. Rev. T. C. Stanley, to whom we have already referred, reported favorably from the Forty-sixth Georgia Regiment. More than two hundred were enrolled in the Association, and the movement was heartily seconded by the field, staff, and line officers. Colonel Colquitt, Major Spears, Quartermaster Leonard, and others, gave aid and counsel to the chaplain. Among the troops at Columbus, Mississippi, a work of much interest began, which was interrupted in its progress by their removal to Jackson. The chaplain laboring there, Rev W. H. Smith, sent forth an earnest call to the home churches for help. Brethren! ministers! are you asleep? Do you not hear the cries of your countrymen calling to you from every part of the land? The soldiers feel their need of salvation, and are crying f
