Alexander's regiment, A. M. Alexander, colonel; J. H. Candle, lieutenant-colonel; J. R. Russell, major. Stevens' regiment, Jas. G. Stevens, colonel; Wm. H. Johnson, lieutenant-colonel; John A. Buck, major. Part of this brigade was in the battles of southern Louisiana, and was afterward under command of General Polignac in Mouton's division. Other commands went to the Indian nation and to southern Arkansas under S. B. Maxey, R. M. Gano, Peter Hardeman, N. W. Battle, T. C. Ross, Jas. Duff, Charles De Morse, D. Showalter and Jas. Bourland. Colonel Maxey having been appointed major-general, in command of some of these forces, fought a successful battle at a place called Poison Spring, capturing a large wagon train and many prisoners. While so many commands were going northward from Texas to find ac
were in the battle of Mansfield and that of Pleasant Hill, which took place on the next day: Maj.--Gen. John G. Walker's infantry division, including the three brigades of Gens. T. N. Waul, Wm. R. Scurry and Horace Randal; Gen. Tom Green's cavalry command, consisting of his old brigade under Colonel Bagby and General Major's brigade; Waller's battalion, Buchel's, Hardeman's, Terrell's, Debray's and McNeill's cavalry regiments (Gen. H. P. Bee had command ,of a part of this cavalry), Brigadier-General Polignac's infantry brigade, and Mosely's, McMahon's and the Valverde batteries. The battle of Mansfield was glorious in its timely conception, wise plan of attack, splendid execution, and victorious result that sent the confident invader with his whole host back on the road he came; and the battle of Pleasant Hill gave a thundering warning to the Northern invader to seek a safer place by continued retreat, with his hopes of renown by the conquest of Texas blasted. Brig.-Gen. Thomas G
was promoted and put in command of the Third brigade, Walker's division. About the middle of June, 1864, Maj.-Gen. John G. Walker was relieved from his division and assigned to the command of the district of Southwest Louisiana in place of Gen. Richard Taylor, who was transferred east of the Mississippi river. Brigadier-General King for a time was in command of Walker's division, until Maj.-Gen. John H, Forney arrived and took charge. General King was then assigned to the brigade of General Polignac, who left the country and returned to France. In the meantime General Magruder had been assigned to duty in southern Arkansas, with the view of keeping the Federals pressed back to the Arkansas river, which was held by General Steele. About the 18th of January, 1865, Lieutenant-General Buckner arrived to take command of the district of Louisiana, and issued an encouraging address to the troops. The Texas troops generally in Louisiana commenced a movement to Texas, and by March 15t
the fight. The Nineteenth corps, though fresh, shared the fate of the Thirteenth. Nothing could arrest the astonishing ardor and courage of our troops. Green, Polignac, Major, Bagby and Randal on the left, Walker, Bee, Scurry and Waul on the right, swept all before them. Just as night was closing in the enemy massed heavily on. The stubborn resistance offered by the enemy along the whole line soon convinced me that he had received reinforcements of fresh troops, and I ordered forward Polignac. Just then information reached me that Major-General Walker was wounded. Galloping to the spot I found that he had received a severe contusion in the groin, an manfully. The dense woods prevented a view of the field, and the continuity of our line was lost. An idea prevailed that we were firing on each other. Green, Polignac, Major, Randal and Gray, with their respective staffs, rallied the troops and led them again and again into action, and the men by their conduct showed themselve
freesboro he again distinguished himself. At Chickamauga he displayed such ability that he was appointed major-general, November 10, 1863. In 1864, on account of impaired health, he was granted leave of absence to visit his home in Texas. After crossing the Mississippi he repaired to Gen. Dick Taylor's headquarters. The gallant cavalry general, Tom Green, having been killed but a few days before, General Taylor immediately placed General Wharton in command, and he, with the cavalry, and Polignac, with infantry, harassed Banks on his retreat to Alexandria, after his disastrous defeat in the Red river campaign. Wharton's career in the Trans-Mississippi was as creditable as it had been on the east side of the great river. On the 6th of April, 1865, in an unfortunate personal altercation, General Wharton was killed by General Baylor at Houston, Tex. Brigadier-General John W. Whitfield began his military career as colonel of the Twenty-seventh Texas cavalry, in 1861. Pea Ridge was
