The Fourth Alabama Regiment.
Captains King's and Dawson's companies of the Fourth Alabama Regiment; and confessing as I do an allegiance to the fair sex, as well as to "Uncle Jeff," I cheerfully comply with her request. I furnish the official report submitted by the officers in command of the respective companies inquired about: Company G, Captain King.--Wounded--2d Sergeant W A Lockett, painfully in shoulder; 4th Sergeant M M Cooke, slightly in thigh; 21 Corporal F G Butler, seriously in thigh; 4th Corporal Ira G Tarrant, dangerously in throat; Privates James R Crowe, fore arm fractured; J A Cosby, painfully in thigh; Wm H Fiquet seriously in arm; Jno Couch, slightly in shoulder; A B Downs, cannister shot in shoulder, (painfully); W D Johnston, slightly in side; Samuel W McKerrall, dangerously through body; James M Snirus, slightly in hip; Oliver H Spencer, slightly in side and head; George F Stevens, seriously in hip; Stephen W Pleasant, painfully in knee. Company C, Captain Dawson.--Killed-- R B Bohannan, E G Ussery, W A Lowry, Jno R Stone. Wounded.--Q M. Sergeant A O Price, 3d Sergeant L A Daniel, 4th Sergeant Boykin Goldsby; Privates W G Boyd, J R Caugntry, F M Cunningham, J R Daniel, T R Harrill, W H Harrison, sr, J M Jordan, A E Kennedy, W R King, T S Motter, G A Morris, F W Peeples, Ben J Tarves, W E Taylor. Being unacquainted with the wounded of Captain Dawson's company, I am unable to specify the nature and character of their various wounds. Many others in these companies received slight scratches and contusions; but the above lists include all who were officially reported. The loss of the regiment in killed and wounded was 208. Its strength in battle was 626 --showing in the aggregate a loss of one out of every three engaged. With many thanks on the part of the companies above named to your fair correspondent for the interest in their behalf manifested by her inquiry, I subscribe myself,
M. M. Cooke
