1 In addition to the above named Texas commands, it appears that Maj. R. P. Crump's cavalry battalion and Teel's battery were with the Confederate army. Colonel Greer took command of Mc-Culloch's division after the fall of the general. Colonel Sims was wounded, and Lieutenant-Colonel Lane was mentioned as particularly distinguished. The latter's regiment (Greer's) served as rear guard during the withdrawal of the Confederate forces. Colonel Stone reported that his regiment led in the charge which resulted in the capture of a Federal battery, and specially mentioned in this connection the companies of Captains Wharton, Throckmorton and Bridges. Maj. L. S. Ross and Capt. R. M. White were distinguished in command of scouting parties. The former commanded one of the battalions of the regiment on the field, the other being under Lieut. D. R. Gurley.
