rdered to Fort Crawford, where he was again active in the building of the fort. Several of the brightest men of Lieutenant Davis's class, his dear friends, were stationed there, and many of the officers had their families. Colonel Zachary Taylor had with him his wife, three daughters, and a son. Of these all were more or less associated with Lieutenant Davis's after-life. Anne, the eldest daughter, one of the most excellent, sensible, and pious women of her day, became the wife of Dr. Robert Wood, who was afterward Surgeon-General of the United States Army. Sarah Knox became Lieutenant Davis's wife two years after this time. Elizabeth married Colonel Bliss, who was General Taylor's adjutant during the war with Mexico, and became his private secretary during his Presidency. The only son, Richard, became a Lieutenant-General in the Confederacy, and was one of the most gallant and daring heroes of an army that was the admiration of one continent and the wonder of the other.

I never wish to be commanded by a truer soldier than Colonel Davis. A short extract is subjoined from the report of General Taylor on the battle of Monterey: I desire also to notice Generals Hamer and Quitman, commanding brigades in General Butler's division; Lieutenant-Colonel Garland and Wilson, commanding brigades in General Twigg's division; Colonels Mitchell, Campbell, Davis, and Wood, commanding the Ohio, Tennessee, Mississippi, and Second Texas Regiments respectively; and Senior Majors Allen and Abercrombie, commanding Third, Fourth, and First Regiments of infantry, all of whom served under my eye and conducted their commands with coolness and gallantry against the enemy.

found moving with every possible precaution; his trains perfectly and judiciously guarded; no foraging parties out, and his large infantry force ready to punish any ill-advised attempt on his column. On the 12th, seeing a road unguarded, Colonel Robert Wood's Mississippi cavalry was ordered to make a dash at some wagons, and see what could be done. He disabled quite a number of wagons, and for a little while created quite a panic; but in a few moments the infantry of the enemy advanced from both directions, and Colonel Wood was recalled. On the 13th, General Polk ordered the cavalry to move to the north of Sherman's line of march, as he proposed to evacuate Meridian and march with his infantry towards Demopolis, Alabama. The enemy arrived at Meridian at 3 P. M. on the 14th of February--the Confederate cavalry retiring north towards Marion station. On this date (14th February), General Polk issued an order placing Major-General S. D. Lee in command of all the cavalry west of Alab
