Southern Historical Society Papers, Volume 6. (ed. Reverend J. William Jones), chapter 1.4 (search)
The battle of Mobile bay. By Commodore Foxhall A. Parker, U. S. N. Boston: A. Williams & Co. A Review by General D. H. Maury. This book is an interesting and valuable addition to the history of the times to which it relates. The narrative is admirably composed, so that the details, which are given with great accuracy, rutes who opposed him with such desperate valor. No such complete account of the famous ram Tennessee has ever yet been given to the public; and in perusing Commodore Parker's history of her we feel that but for the untoward accidents by which she lost so much propelling power and the control of her steering gear, she would aloneight have been the great naval hero of the war. The extreme difficulties we had to encounter in building such a ship as the Tennessee are well narrated by Commodore Parker, and leave little cause for wonder or complaint that so many imperfections existed in her construction. The engines were taken from a Mississippi steamer

of attack on General Jackson's position. The left of the ridge was held by Eubank's battery of four smooth bores, who opened on the enemy as soon as he discerned their advance. At the same time I shifted to his assistance with two howitzers of Parker's battery, two of Rhett's battery and one of Jordan's battery. At the same time I directed nine other pieces, mostly rifles on the right of the ridge under Captains Jordan and Taylor, to change their position so as to fire on the enemy in flank,ery man's history. It was a struggle for life. * * * It seemed that the very heavens were in a blaze, or like two angry clouds, surcharged with electricity, and wafted by opposing winds, had met in terrific battle. (The above was written by Dr. Parker, one of the most respected physicians now in Richmond, who was a captain of artillery in this battle.) Esten Cooke, in his history of Jackson, places Colonel Lee's artillery on Jackson's right, and between Jackson and Longstreet on the ridge

was skirmishing in my front with his brigade of cavalry. At 12.30 A. M. on the 6th started for Parker's store, on the Plank road, in obedience to orders received from the Commanding-General, who als informed me that Generals Hill and Ewell had been heavily engaged the previous day. Arriving at Parker's store about dawn, I was directed tomove my column down the Plank road to relieve the divisionsemy on the right and left of the Plank road, at right angles with it and about three miles below Parker's store. Kershaw's division was in the lead, arriving in rear of the line held by these two div run. The command being in camp near Vediersville on the night of 5th, was put in motion towards Parker's store, on the Plank road leading to Fredericksburg, at one o'clock on the morning of the 6th, glers to the rear, whom they marched boldly to the front. About a mile down the Plank road from Parker's store, I was ordered to file to the right of the road and form line of battle with my left res

. I have to ask, therefore, that you give it a place in your Papers whenever it may be convenient. I am, very respectfully, your most obedient servant, James Longstreet. The above letter, including Colonel Walton's, does not at all meet the issue I raised in my article in the August number of the Historical Society Papers, but is a clear ignoring and evasion of that issue. The point raised in my article was that my eighteen (18) guns consisting of the batteries of Eubank, Jordan, Parker, Rhett, and a section of Grimes' battery under Lieutenant Cakum (to use the words of General R. E. Lee's official report), posted in a position a little in advance of Longstreet's left, together with General Jackson's infantry, had something to do with the repulse of the enemy on the 30th August, 1862, in their desperate and gallant assault on General Jackson's position. General Longstreet, with his letter, sends a letter from Colonel J. B. Walton, in which he (Colonel W.) labors to prov
