ds, on May 9, 1861. The first naval engagement of the war, in the sense of a squadron fight, thus took place under a Massachusetts officer. It occurred before Fort Pillow, on May 10, and resulted in a partial victory for the Union flotilla, the Confederate rams having, however, done great damage, and the Union rams being not yet employed. Later, Fort Pillow was bombarded by Davis up to June 4, when it was abandoned, leaving forty heavy guns and much military material. On June 6 Davis commanded in a second fight with the Confederate flotilla, he being now fully reinforced by Colonel Ellet and his rams. The eight Confederate boats had from two to four gunwith ropes round their necks, both they and their black recruits having been expressly denied by the Confederate government the privileges of soldiers. After Fort Pillow the negroes were not acknowledged as prisoners, and went through with the company as waiters and hostlers. (John V. Barkley of Co. C, 2d Tenn. Cavalry, Round T
