I think I am conservative in saying that General Gibbon lost 1,200 men killed outright around Fort Gregg.
The following named members of the Claiborne Guards, Company K, 12th Mississippi Regiment, were in Fort Gregg, and assisted in its defense: Captain A. K. Jones, Corporal H. K. Fuller, H. M. Colson, W. W. Coutch, H. W. Porter, J. H. Roberts, A. J. Sevier, G. W. H. Shaifer, J. H. Simms, W. R. Thompson, and Pearson Wells.
W. D. Brown was wounded before we got into the fort, and did not enter, but went on to the rear.
John H. Roberts was shot some minutes after the capture of the fort, as many of our men were.
For some time the Natchez Fencibles, Company G, were attached to Company K, and both regarded as one company.
There were of the Natchez Fencibles present in Fort Gregg: Lieutenant Glasscock, Sergeant Barlow, Sergeant Lecand, Corporal Murray, Naftel Underwood, Joseph Vandyke, and West.
