Fitzhugh Lee, General Lee, Chapter 3: a cavalry officer of the army of the United States. (search)
revet-Colonel R. E. Lee, of the engineers, was promoted to be lieutenant colonel of this regiment, and William J. Hardee and William H. Emory to be its majors. The latter was soon transferred to the First Cavalry, and the vacancy offered to Braxton Bragg, of the artillery, who declined it because he did not want to remain in the service, and recommended George H. Thomas, of the Third Artillery, who was appointed. Van Dorn, Kirby Smith, James Oakes, Innis Palmer, Stoneman, O'Hara, Bradfute, Travis, Brackett, and Whiting were its captains, and Nathan G. Evans, Richard W. Johnson, Charles Field, and John B. Hood were among its first lieutenants. Secretary of War Davis graduated at West Point in 1828, two years after Albert Sidney Johnston and one year before Robert E. Lee. He possessed an accurate knowledge of the individual merits of army officers, and time and history have indorsed his selection of officers for these new regiments; for on their respective sides in the late war ne

id its predestined work. Texas proclaimed her entire independence of Mexico, March 2, 1836. War, of course, ensued — in fact, was already beginning — and Houston soon succeeded Austin in the command of the insurgent forces. On the 10th, Houston repaired to the camp at Gonzales, where 374 poorly-armed, ill-supplied men, were mustered to dispute the force, 5,000 strong, with which Santa Anna had already crossed the Rio Grande and advanced to the frontier fort, known as the Alamo, held by Col. Travis, with 185 men, who were captured and all put to death. Houston, of course, retreated, hoping to be joined by Col. Fannin, who held Goliad with 500 men, and several pieces of artillery, whereas Houston had not one. But Fannin, while on his way to join Houston, was intercepted and surrounded by a strong Mexican detachment under Urrea, by whom, after two days fighting, he was captured (March 20), and all his survivors, 357 men, treacherously shot in cold blood. Houston, of course, continu

Beauregard: The following just received from General McCown: Fort Pillow, March 18th, 1862. General Polk: In obedience to orders, I am here with six guns of Bankhead's battery, six guns Captain Stuart's battery; Colonel Neilly Mark's, Colonel Scott's, Colonel Kennedy's, Colonel Bradford's, and Colonel Travis's regiments. I directed Captain Neilly's squadron to be sent down as soon as they could be withdrawn from the position they occupied. I left with Colonel Walker the artillery, heavy; Colonel Steadman's, Colonel Gantt's, Colonel Baker's, Colonel Henderson Walker's, Colonel Clark's, and Colonel Terry's battalion. Also one company of Captain Stuart's battery, the least force that I think he can maintain his position with, and also two companies Mississippi cavalry. Terry's, Clark's, and
W. Scott and Lieutenant Culbertson, of Colonel Minty's staff, for the efficient aid and assistance given me in taking the city. I had omitted to state that we captured, after getting in the city, four (4) two-pound breech-loading guns-known as Travis guns-made and intended for General Forrest, and a large number of horses and mules. I have the honor to remain, Captain, respectfully your obedient servant, Frank White, Commanding Regiment. Captain O. F. Bane, A. A. A. G., First Brigade, Secs captured by privates A R. Hudson and J. Davis, from a battalion of militia near Culloden, Georgia, after a sharp skirmish, in which a small party of the regiment ran about two hundred militia. I also hold, subject to orders, four two-pounder Travis guns, breech-loading smooth-bore, brass. They are not mounted. They were found by Corporal Bottoff, of Company K, boxed up and buried in the small-pox graveyard. He (Bottoff) was directed to them by a rebel soldier. The guns were made for pre
th his squadron of Confederate cavalry, was escorting the steamboat Julia Roane down the Arkansas river, when at White Oak, seven miles west of Ozark, he was attacked by a band of Arkansas Federals, under Captain Galloway. Dorsey, with his Confederates, charged and routed them, killing horses and wounding several of the enemy, who retreated to Frog bayou. On February 3d, Capt. Peter Mankins, with a portion of his company, was surrounded in a house on Mulberry by a scouting party under Captain Travis, which Mankins repulsed, killing two men of the Tenth Illinois and wounding others. The land and naval forces on the Mississippi burned Mound City, Ark., on the 15th of January. On the 24th, a scouting party from Fayetteville crossed the Boston mountains, and going down Frog bayou, entered Van Buren and captured the steamboat Julia Roane, with about 250 Confederates from the hospital, who were paroled, being sick; the steamer, which was only a hospital, being allowed to proceed. M
g lost all hope that the legislature would be called together, they determined to make a call for a convention as citizens of the State, and at once fixed the date for the election of delegates on the 8th of January, 1861, and for the convention to meet at Austin on the 28th; and provided for the delegates to be double the number of the representatives in the legislature, omitting the senators, by which there would be 180 delegates. Those signing the call were more than sixty citizens, from Travis and 27 other counties, most of whom were prominent men. The call was published and gladly responded to in all parts of the State. The question then before the people was regarded as above mere politics, and such as required all persons to speak out their opinions. The judges of the supreme and district courts upon being called on gave full expression of their views, which generally were in favor of the immediate action of the State in its sovereign capacity.
