in of supplies, which McIntosh and Churchill, of McCulloch's brigade, soon captured. Lyon marched into Springfield, August 1st. He was joined the next day by Major Sturgis, who had a skirmish at Dug Springs with Arkansas and Missouri mounted men. The Arkansas troops were commanded by Capt. Americus V. Reiff. It required sharp skirmishing of several hours, by several companies under Capt. Frederick Steele, the Fourth artillery under Lieutenant Lathrop, and a company of cavalry under Captain Stanley, and finally Totten's battery, with also two pieces from Sigel's brigade, to drive the Confederates back. Col. Jordan E. Cravens, of Governor Rector's staff, fought with Capt. Reiff's company at Dug Springs. Lyon, believing it was the intention of the Confederates to draw him away from his supplies, retired to Springfield, while 2,000 regulars, under Major Sturgis and Lieutenant-Colonel Andrews, remained about four miles from the town. Meanwhile, the Confederates from Missouri and Ar
retched. Morgan was a veteran soldier, captain of Company A, First Arkansas Confederate infantry; had returned to the Trans-Mississippi department and was appointed colonel of the regiment by Hindman. He had raised and organized Company A of the regiment at Eldorado, Union county, and had led the regiment at the battle of Prairie Grove. Lieut. William Smith became captain, by promotion of Morgan, of Company A. The other captains appointed were Samuel Gibson, W. S. Otey, A. H. Holiday, J. R. Stanley, Jesse Bland, J. S. Brooks, J. W. May, J. R. Maxwell and W. A. Bull. The clamor for election of officers had been yielded to by the Confederate Congress, and the regiment insisted upon a reorganization under the law. Colonel Morgan was the reliance of General Steele, as long as he was content to serve under the many annoyances and privations of the post. When an election was ordered, he declined to be a candidate, and was appointed inspector of field transportation, in which capacity h
5th, Gen. C. B. Holland, in command of Missouri and Arkansas cavalry, made a raid on Berryville, Carrollton and Rolling prairie, in pursuit of Freeman and Love's Confederate commands, which had crossed White river at Talbot's ferry on an expedition into Missouri. Holland reported that his valiant Missouri militiamen killed 70 men on this raid, and captured 8 or 10 prisoners, who were non-combatants very likely, or they would not have been captured. These expeditions were simply such as Stanley has described of the Arabs upon Turi and Congo rivers. In January the Federal commander at Fayetteville sent out an expedition, under Captain Galloway of the First Arkansas (Federal), through Carroll into Searcy county. At Clear creek it met a scouting party from Col. A. R. Witt's command, which, after a skirmish, fell back to the crossing of the Tomahawk. There the Federals were again attacked by the Confederates, but proceeded to Burrowsville, the county seat of Searcy county, being fi
Lieuts. W. P. McCabe and C. E. Mitchell; and his volunteer aides, W. F. Sale and E. E. Ives. Colonel Shaver mentioned particularly the gallant conduct of Sergt. David McCulloch of Company A, who, being ordered to advance as near as possible to the enemy's line, shot down one of the enemy's skirmishers, and capturing another brought him off under fire. Col. L. C. Gause mentioned Col. J. M. Davis, Lieut.-Cols. Brooks and Hicks, commanding regiments in his brigade; Majors Hathaway and Stanley; Captain Anthony, acting lieutenant-colonel; and Captain Mantell, acting major of Gause's regiment, and the gallant dead—Captain McIver and Lieuts. Cude [Creden], Lasiter and Ponder. Lieut.-Col. H. G. P. Williams, who commanded the dismounted portion of Dockery's brigade, mentioned Lieutenant Gillespie, Captain Franklin, and his adjutant, Thos. H. Simms; and made acknowledgment of the gallant assistance rendered by Lieutenant Cunningham of General Smith's staff. After the battle, the
