On the second day of the battle of Bentonville he took command of Walthall's division and led it until the reorganization at Goldsboro, just before the surrender at Durham's Station, near Raleigh.

During the troublous days which followed the war he was conspicuous as a leader, adviser, and advocate of a wronged and oppressed people. After the State, redeemed, regenerated and disenthralled, had thrown off the rule of ignorance, brigandage and barbarism and firmly reestab-lished its government on the sure foundations of intelligence and integrity, he was elected to the United States Senate for the term beginning March 1, 1877; and three times has he been re-elected. He is an industrious senator, devoted in work, diligent vigilant, ready and vigorous in his treatment of all public matters. He has convictions, strong and clear, and gives them eloquent and bold utterance. Serving on many important committees, he is a working member of each; and on pending measures, from time to time he has made many notable speeches and engaged in many memorable debates. He is earnest, persistent, resolute, and accepts defea

The regiment proceeded to Virginia and was assigned to the brigade of Gen. Kirby Smith, of which Colonel Forney was in command for three months after First Manassas. At Dranesville, where he was again in command of his regiment, he was severely wounded in the arm. On March 10, 1862, he was commissioned brigadier-general, and on October 27th of the same year was promoted to major-general, and soon after assigned to the department of South Alabama and West Florida. After being in Mobile a year on this duty, he was sent to Vicksburg, where he commanded a division before and during the siege. After his exchange he was transferred to the department of the Trans-Mississippi, where he commanded a division under General Magruder.

He offered his services to the Confederate government and was assigned to duty on the staff of Gen. Joseph E. Johnston, serving in that capacity at the first battle of Manassas. Then obtaining authority to raise a regiment, with the assistance of Maj. Robert B. Armistead, he recruited the Twenty-second Alabama, at its organization was elected colonel, and commissioned October 25, 1 86 . At that time there were not arms enough in the Confederacy to supply the men who enlisted. So Colonel Deas paid out of his own means $28,000 in gold for 800 Enfield rifles, and equipped his own regiment. In return for this service the Confederate government, one year later, gave him that amount of Confederate bonds. At Shiloh he led his regiment until General Gladden, brigade commander, and Col. Wirt Adams were borne wounded from the field, on the first day, when he took command
