Company D, ‘Coffee Rangers’—Coffee county.

Captain John Canty Brown, promoted to major; resigned; died in Florida.

Captain Exon Tucker; killed at Sharpsburg.

Captain James T. Davis; killed at Gettysburg. This last brave officer, with his company, was resting by a fence as we approached Gettysburg, and under heavy fire of the enemy's artillery, when a cannon ball ricochetted, struck him in the head and instantly translated him to a better world. His brains spattered over me and my companions near by, and the experience was a most distressing one.
