[221] Fort Harrison, they repulsed an attack at Four-mile run. With reinforcements they repelled the violent assault on Fort Gilmer. On October 7th, in the fight at the New Market road, General Gregg was killed.

The Texas brigade, in the army of Northern Virginia, as well as many other commands, has insufficient mention in the meager reports of 1864-65 which are accessible. Many official reports of battles were lost or destroyed, and in many instances the campaigns were so active as to leave little time for making reports. At its last service the brigade was commanded by Col. Robert M. Powell; the First by Col. Frederick S. Bass, the Fourth by Lieut.-Col. Clinton M. Winkler, and the Fifth by Capt. W. T. Hill. At Appomattox 64 officers were paroled and 553 men.
