to lead Cummings's brigade on the left of our line. In this charge, so highly spoken of by the general commanding, the day was won. No truer man, or more gallant officer than General Henderson ever buckled on sword in defence of the Lost Cause, and 'tis a pleasure for me to speak of his gallant conduct on the field of battle. Just before his death, in this city, at the residence of his sonin-law, Mr. L. J. Hill, I called on him, accompanied by Colonel W. L. Calhoun. In talking over the events of the war, he said to us: ‘Calhoun, you and Thomas must keep my army record correct,’ and we promised to do so, and shook his hand for the last time. With others, we accompanied his remains to Covington, Ga., shortly afterward, where they now rest.
