character after the battle of Cane Hill, Gen Blunt orders his trains to Rhea's Mills couriers sent to Gen. Herron to bring forward his division on a forced marwing year. I commenced to write the following memoirs at Rhea's Mills, Washington County, Arkansas, on the 25th day of December, 1862. In my chronicles I said ne Hill, General Blunt ordered forward all his trains from Camp Moonlight to Rhea's Mills, eight miles north of Cane Hill. All the troops of his division, except so the principal passes in the mountains to the south of us, were collected at Rhea's Mills, for he knew from the information that our scouts brought in each day, thatpposing that his army was attacked in the rear by Gen. Blunt's division from Rhea's Mills, ordered his troops to form in line of battle, facing to the rear. We saw t the battle at early dawn. The supply and baggage trains of our division at Rhea's Mills, had been in an unsafe position during the day, and were removed during the
etteville resources of the country around Rhea's Mills furnishes forage for the cavalry and tran the enemy shell their own city return to Rhea's Mills. Before saluting the new year we must nond baggage trains back from Fayetteville to Rhea's Mills, and our division went into camp again. Geave new excitement. We remained in camp at Rhea's Mills about three weeks after the battle of Prairfatiguing, for we had marched since we left Rhea's Mills, upwards of thirty miles. I found the infanion in the face of orders to fall back from Rhea's Mills to the southern line of Missouri. If thng (29), at seven o'clock, on our return to Rhea's Mills. But before we commence our return march, the 29th we set out on our return march to Rhea's Mills. Many of the soldiers had their haversacksThey were nearly three days on the march to Rhea's Mills. Most of the cavalry, however, got in on tCol. W. A. Phillips, about the time we left Rhea's Mills, in the direction of Fort Gibson. After a [1 more...]
Chapter 3: The First division army of the Frontier moves from Rhea's Mills to Elm Springs all the Federal wounded in the field Hospitals at Prairie Grove removed to Fayetteville General Blunt relieved and starts north General Schofuld move north-ward, turned out to be true. On the morning of January 2d, 1863, the First Division struck tents, left Rhea's Mills, and took up a line of march for Elm Springs, about twenty-two miles north. The General Hospitals were established aof affording much better facilities for properly caring for sick and wounded soldiers than could easily be provided at Rhea's Mills or Prairie Grove. When it is possible, I think our surgeons prefer substantial buildings for hospitals to the Field Hbric. On the evening of the 2nd we camped on Wild Cat Creek, having marched a distance of about sixteen miles from Rheas Mills. A heavy rain last night put the roads in bad condition for our trains and artillery. But as there is no necessity f
cker killed near camp the people should be better informed by proclamation of the Federal purposes officers for the Fourth and Fifth Indian regiments report to Colonel Phillips no such regiments exist criticisms concerning the matter near Rhea's Mills again two loyal Arkansas regiments organized after a battle the people show on which side their sympathies are by their expressions the people of a less haughty spirit than in Missouri Reconnoissance returned from Dutch Mills women and chs if they were fighting, skirmishing and marching every day. The Indian division left Big Springs or Camp Moonlight on the morning of the 24th, and marched to Illinois River twelve miles south. This brings us within ten or twelve miles of Rhea's Mills, where the Army of the Frontier, under General Blunt, was encamped during the month of December. Colonel Phillips has named our camp here Camp Pomeroy, in honor of Senator Pomeroy, of Kansas. Should a Post office be established at this pl
he was apprised of this advance, Dec. 2. with one of his three brigades (Gen. Salomon's), protecting his trains at Rhea's Mills, 8 miles north. Determined not to be driven out of Arkansas, he telegraphed in various directions for Gen. Herron, cotoo late; his messengers were intercepted by Marmaduke's cavalry. Hindman was probably reaching for Blunt's trains at Rhea's Mills, when, to their mutual astonishment, he locked horns with Herron on Illinois creek, near the settlement known as Prairction, if possible, with Herron. Three miles north of Cane Hill, however, Wickersham had taken the left-hand road to Rhea's Mills, instead of the right, leading directly to Fayetteville; and Blunt, on reaching the fork, had followed, deeming it imper noon, the boom of artillery was heard in the north-east, and, leaving Gen. Salomon's brigade to guard his train; at Rhea's Mills, Blunt set forward, over a blind, hilly road, with his two others, in the direction of the fire. At 1:45 P. M., Gen
rs, were at Cane Hill; the First brigade at Rhea's Mills, eight miles north, where a large supply-trFirst division hitched up, ready to move to Rhea's Mills, should circumstances render it necessary; nd also directing him to send his trains to Rhea's Mills. Neither of these despatches reached him, ade (Gen. Salomon's) to guard the trains at Rhea's Mills. It was now between twelve and one o'clocktion, and also to guard the road leading to Rhea's Mills, and prevent communication being cut off wi. Salomon's brigade, which had been left at Rhea's Mills, ordered to the field; ammunition was brougonsidered. The enemy might move first upon Rhea's Mills--eight miles off, and a little to the west e right, to Herron's relief, if necessary. Rhea's Mills is at the eastern extremity of a beautiful, headquarters army of the frontier, Rhea's Mills, Ark., Sunday, Dec. 7, 1862. Death has reapwo brigades were about-faced and ordered to Rhea's Mills on a double-quick, a distance of ten miles,[10 more...]
