arnwell county colonel of the regiment of Barnwell county Confederate veterans, and now holds that office. He is very prominent among the veterans of his county and at all memorial exercises and reunions is invariably the orator of the occasion. Lieutenant Thomas B. Crews Lieutenant Thomas B. Crews, of Laurens, S. C., was born in Rutherfordton, N. C., June 7, 1832. His father was Thomas Crews, a native of Georgia, and his mother was Miss Mary Patterson, of Virginia, whose father, John Patterson, was a Revolutionary soldier. Mr. Crews located in Laurens, in 1849, at the age of sixteen, and first served as a clerk. Soon afterward he became a printer's apprentice and completed his education in this line at Atlanta, Ga., and when the war began he was assistant editor and publisher of the Abbeville Banner. In July,. 1861, he entered the Confederate service as first sergeant of Company A, First South Carolina cavalry, Hampton's brigade, J. E. B. Stuart's corps. He was promoted to
arrisburg, Miss., on the Mobile & Ohio railroad, near Tupelo, on the 14th of July, with 9,000 men and 20 field pieces. Deducting every fourth man as a horse-holder, and small detachments not present, there were not 8,000 Confederates in action. Chalmers' division consisted of McCulloch's and Rucker's brigades; Buford's division, of Bell's Tennessee brigade, Lyon's Kentucky brigade, commanded by Col. Ed. Crossland, and Mabry's Mississippi brigade; Roddey's division, of the brigades of Colonels Patterson and Johnson. Colonel Lyon was detached from his own brigade and placed in command of Col. J. J. Neely's Tennessee brigade, Gholson's Mississippi brigade, and Beltzhoover's battalion. On the 12th, Lyon skirmished with the enemy near Pontotoc, and Barteau, with the Second Tennessee, hung upon his rear. Colonel Duff, with part of Rucker's brigade, forced the Federal advance back upon the main body. McCulloch, too, assailed the advance near Houston and drove it back. The Federal ge

He is a graduate of the medical department of the University of Pennsylvania, and is now a citizen of the State of Texas, where he enjoys the highest personal and professional consideration. When Dr. Stout was called upon to name the Tennesseeans who in his opinion were most distinguished for their services to the general and field hospitals, he named Doctors B. W. Avent, Frank Rice, J. R. Buist, R. W. Mitchell, W. L. Nichol, J. B. Murfree, Clayton, John Patterson, Compton, R. C. Foster, G. W. and John H. Currey, J. M. Kellar, J. B. Cowan, G. B. Thornton, C. C. Abernathy, J. F. Grant, and Bell, killed at Island No.10. A notice of this service is incomplete unless mention is made of the services of Dr. J. H. Bryson, a clergyman of Tennessee, appointed by General Bragg to look after the religious interests of the sick and wounded in the general hospitals. This devoted man gave every moment of his time to this service, and won the love and gratitud

rawing presents my recollections of the swamp or marsh in which the May and Sorrel incident occurred (I. A.) and about the location of Lee when he was wounded. Our advance was then to the plank-road, where we found some hastily-constructed earthworks, breast-high, and where we met very little resistance. The organization of the regiment, and, indeed, the brigade, was then very imperfect. Soon after passing over the breastworks (k. k. k.) we were recalled to the plank-road. I remember John Patterson's voice in the call. As soon as we reached the plank-road on the advance, Sorrel galloped down the road to our left, and soon after our return to the road at k. k. k. May was waving the Twelfth flag and warning our friends (Sixteenth Virginia?) who were advancing to the plank-road. It was immediately after two of our color-guard were shot down, at M, that I heard of General Longstreet's wound. I did not see him or General Jenkins, but locate the point at O, probably a hundred yards f

enlistment, were preparing to return to their homes. Thus that experienced general, McDowell, took the field with an army without a staff, commissariat, or organization in any department. With all these drawbacks to contend against, McDowell fixed on July 9, 1861, for an excellently devised move against the Confederates under Beauregard, but on account of lack of transportation, the advance commenced on the 16th. The commander of the Army of the Potomac expected the co-operation of General Patterson, who, with 18,000 men, was ordered to observe and attack the Confederates under Joseph E. Johnston, then holding Harper's Ferry. General Beauregard had been terribly busy for weeks in licking into shape the motley Confederate organizations as they arrived from Richmond on Manassas plains. Many of these soldiers brought from home their trusty rifles and shotguns, but the vast majority of the Army of Northern Virginia were armed with old Springfield muskets, such as had been capture

rginia regiment. He was my school-mate at the Episcopal High School for two years, and my college-mate at the University of Virginia for two more, and a very dear friend. At the breaking out of the war he was a student of Divinity at the Episcopal Theological Seminary, near Alexandria, and after returning home he enlisted in the Berkeley Border Guards, the company from Martinsburg, belonging to the 2d Virginia regiment. He came out of Martinsburg to enlist in his country's service while Patterson's army was around the place, and not long after he died, as he would have wished to die, fighting for his country's independence. His brother, Holmes A. Conrad, of the same company, was also killed that day, and almost at the same time with Tucker. I was not so well acquainted with Holmes, but Tucker I knew long and intimately, and can testify to his character and worth; a most devoted friend, a most faithful man, and a most pious Christian, he endeared himself to all who knew him, and h
