The Eighth Georgia Regiment.
We had an interview last evening with Mr. J. W. Avery
, of the Oglethorpe
Light Infantry, of Savannah, Ga.
, who gives us some interesting facts in regard to Col. Bartow
's gallant regiment, which we propose to publish in detail in our next issue.
In the battle of Sunday, besides Col. Bartow
, Adjutant John L. Branch
and Capt. Howard
--the latter commander of the Echols Guard
— were killed — and this probably embraces the entire mortality list among the officers.
