With the long march to Enterprise, the exchange of the troops, their fortunes in the last years of the war, this paper cannot deal.
The Botetourt Artillery —all that was left of it—was exchanged at Enterprise.
Ragged, worn and cheerful, it marched away to old Virginia.
Its Captain, John William Johnston, becoming Major of Artillery, left the company.
Through the remainder of the war he commanded Johnston's Battery of light artillery.
He fought at Dalton, Resaca, Columbia, Franklin and Nashville, and surrendered at Salisbury, N. C., two days after the surrender of his kinsman, Joseph E. Johnston.
He was a soldier all his life, and a much loved man. In this paper I have more than once quoted Gunner No. 4, Adam H. Plecker, who lives now at Lynchburg, in Virginia. Gunner No. 4 has this to say of his old captain: I have two pictures in my mind.
When we camped at Manassas orders were issued for all the men who wished to do so to assemble just before taps for prayer service.
