rrender I was ordered by Major-General Pope to take charge of the prisoners, who were about 3,000 in number. On the 8th of April, when the affair was fresh in his memory, General Pope telegraphed the department commander that 2,000 prisoners, including General Mackall, had surrendered and were prisoners of war. Nashville had been defended at Fort Donelson. The surrender of one made it necessary to abandon the other. General Johnston determined to concentrate his own troops with those at Columbus, Ky., and at Pensacola, at Corinth, Miss., the junction of the Mobile & Ohio and the Memphis & Charleston railroads. General Grant was moving on the same point, and Gen. Don Carlos Buell, of the Federal army, who had been in front of Bowling Green with an army of 40,000 men, occupied Nashville as soon as it was abandoned by the Confederate forces, and began the movement of his troops that enabled him to form a junction with Grant in time to save the army of the latter from annihilation.
retreat with an army 18,591 strong. The first return of strength after the campaign was made at Tupelo, Miss., on the 20th of January, 1865, showed an effective total of 16,913, after every soldier from west Tennessee had been furloughed at Corinth, Miss., for thirty days. They represented the One Hundred and Fifty-fourth, Second, Fourth, Fifth, Sixth, Ninth, Twelfth, Thirteenth, Fifteenth, Twenty-first, Twenty-second, Thirty-first, Thirty-third, Thirty-eighth, Forty-sixth, Forty-seventh, Fiftges, 4 locomotives, 100 cars, 10 miles of railroad, and have turned over to the provost-marshal 1,600 prisoners, besides the capture of several hundred horses, mules and cattle. In an address to his troops issued by Forrest on his return to Corinth, Miss., he said: During the past year (1864) you have fought 50 battles, killed and captured 16,000 of the enemy, captured 2,000 mules and horses, 67 pieces of artillery, 4 gunboats, 14 transports, 20 barges, 300 wagons, 50 ambulances, 10,000 stand
e expedition was completed, and the Confederates marched six miles after night, guided by the light of the fire at Johnsonville. In a campaign of two weeks the forces of Forrest had captured and destroyed 4 gunboats, 14 transports, 20 barges, 26 pieces of artillery, and millions of dollars worth of property, with 150 prisoners captured. Captain Howland (Federal) reported that one million dollars would cover the loss of property at Johnsonville. On the 10th, Forrest's cavalry reached Corinth, Miss., and under orders the commanding general put himself in communication with General Hood, who was preparing to enter upon his disastrous campaign to Franklin and Nashville. On the 27th of January, 1865, Gen. Richard Taylor, commanding department, assigned General Forrest to the command of the district of Mississippi and Louisiana. On the 13th of the following month Brig.-Gen. W. H. Jackson was assigned to the command of all of the Tennesseeans in the district. Bell's and Rucker's bri

As often as military reasons demanded the evacuation of our territory, the medical department was so managed that hospitals could be removed, with their organizations preserved. An illustration is found in the Academy hospital at Chattanooga. Upon the evacuation of that place it was removed to Marietta, Ga., then to Atlanta, to Forsyth, to Auburn, Ala., to Corinth, Miss., and finally returned to Auburn. After the battle of Murfreesboro, Dr. Avent was left in charge of about 500 Confederates, too badly wounded for removal. He so impressed General Rosecrans that orders were given to honor any requisition made for supplies for his wounded. On his return to the South, at his own request, he was assigned to hospital duty. General Bragg was keenly alive to the importance of a complete hospital service, and gave the subject his personal attention. In a

When the Eighth Alabama was organized, Captain Frazer was appointed by the war department, lieutenant-colonel. After serving with this regiment a while, he resigned to take the position of colonel of the Twenty-eighth Alabama. This regiment reached Corinth, Miss., after the battle of Shiloh; was first under fire in a skirmish at Corinth; was with Bragg in the Kentucky campaign, and under the command of Colonel Frazer was slightly engaged at Munfordville, Ky. Subsequently he resigned, and on May 19, 1863, was commissioned brigadier-general and sent into east Tennessee, where his command consisted of the Fifty-fifth Georgia, Sixty-second and Sixty-fourth North Carolina, and Rains' battery.
