Napoleon guns, one 12-pounder field howitzer, six 10-pounder rifle Parrots, two 200-pounder rifle Parrots, one 10-pounder rifle Parrot, one 24-pounder field howitzer, one 12-pounder caisson, one 10-pounder caisson, one 6-pounder caisson, one 10-pounder Parrot caisson, one 12-pounder Parrot caisson, one 24-pounder Parrot caisson, one 10-pounder Parrot caisson, one 12-pounder Parrot caisson, and thousands of small arms. This is a pretty good showing, and it looks as if there had been some desperate fighting on that battlefield. General Longstreet in his report says: ‘The odds against us on this field were probably greater than on any other.’ Comrades, a few words more and I will close. I am proud of the old Fourteenth, and justly so; it was as good a regiment as ever struck a blow for Dixie. Comrades, I will name six regiments that met with the greatest number of casualties in the seven days battles around Richmond: Killed, wounded and missing: The Twentieth North Carolina, Garland's Brigade, 380; Forty-fourth Georgia, Ripley's Brigade, 335; Fourteenth Alabama, Pryor's Brigade, 335; Nineteenth Mississippi, Featherston's Brigade, 325; Fourth Texas, Hood's Brigade, 253; Fourteenth Louisiana, Pryor's Brigade, 243. After thanking Comrade Leech for his interesting paper, the meeting adjourned.
