William F. Fox, Lt. Col. U. S.

fire-arms, explosions of ammunition, and railway accidents; in the cavalry service, a large number of accidental deaths resulted from poor horsemanship. The number of the drowned may seem large, but the average is less than three men to a regiment. This loss was occasioned largely by bathing and boating. At times, some regiment would sustain a larger loss while fording rivers, or landing from small boats in the surf. The Seventy-fifth Pennsylvania, while crossing the Shenandoah, in April, 1862, lost 2 officers and 51 men, drowned by the swamping of a scow. Of the Union soldiers confined in Confederate prisons, 24,866 died of disease, exclusive of 2,072 who died of wounds while in the enemy's bands, and 3,218 others who died from various causes, known and unknown. As to what proportion of these 24,866 deaths was due to harsh treatment, instead of disease, it would be difficult to say.

The First Corps, when at its maximum, contained 46 regiments of infantry and 12 batteries of light artillery. It was organized in March, 1862, with three divisions,--King's, McCall's, and Franklin's. General Irwin McDowell was placed in command. When General McClellan moved the Army to the Peninsula, in April, 1862, McDowell's corps was left in Northern Virginia. Franklin's Division was ordered, soon after, to the Peninsula, where it was used in forming the Sixth Corps, its place in McDowell's command being taken by Ricketts' Division. In June, McCall's Division — the famous Pennsylvania Reserves--was also sent to the Peninsular Army, but upon the return of McClellan's forces to Washington, the Reserves rejoined McDowell, and fought under him at Second Bull Run.

and the 115th Ohio lost 83 killed in the same accident. Ohio regiments had the honor of furnishing the twenty-two soldiers who captured a locomotive and made the famous railroad raid along the line of the Atlanta & Chattanooga Railroad, in April, 1862. It was a daring deed, and without an equal in its thrilling story of danger, intrepidity, heroic suffering, and death. Daring and Danger: by the Rev. William Pittinger (2d Ohio). The men who were detailed to carry out this wild romance wein the field, and secured for their State a full share of the laurels of the war. Prominent among these was Hall's Iowa Brigade, of the Seventeenth Corps, composed of the 11th, 13th, 15th, and 16th Regiments. These troops were brigade thus in April, 1862, under command of Colonel Crocker of the 13th Iowa, and served together until mustered out in July, 1865. Crocker, having been promoted Brigadier, was succeeded by Colonel Hall of the 11th, who was in turn succeeded, in August, 1864, by Gener
ulings of that chief justice who delivered the opinion substantially that the negro had no rights that a white man was bound to respect. While I remained in Washington, I was trying cases before the supreme court of the district and the Supreme Court of the United States. There was one case which I tried before both courts which was very important, not only for the amount involved, but as establishing a precedent which had not then been established in England or in this country. In April, 1862, when Farragut made his wonderful passage with his fleet to New Orleans, he took possession of a large amount of water-borne property, especially coal afloat, and many vessels, a considerable number of which originally belonged to Northern owners who had sent them down there before the war broke out. Among them were several valuable river steamers. When I occupied the city with my troops, many of these vessels became necessary as a means of transportation, and were turned over by the n

Chapter 9: battle of Shiloh. March and April, 1862. In the middle of February, 1862, Major-General Halleck commanded all the armies in the valley of the Mississippi, from his headquarters in St. Louis. These were, the Army of the Ohio, Major-General Buell, in Kentucky; the Army of the Tennessee, Major-General Grant, at Forts Henry and Donelson; and General S. R. Curtis, in Southern Missouri. He posted his chief of staff, General Cullum, at Cairo, and me at Paducah, chiefly to expedite and facilitate tile important operations then in progress up the Tennessee and Cumberland Rivers. Fort Donelson surrendered to General Grant on the 16th of February, and there must have been a good deal of confusion resulting from the necessary care of the wounded, and disposition of prisoners, common to all such occasions, and there was a real difficulty in communicating between St. Louis and Fort Donelson. General Buell had also followed up the rebel army, which had retreated hastily from

Chapter 10: Shiloh to Memphis. April to July, 1862. While the Army of the Tennessee, under Generals Grant and C. F. Smith, was operating up the Tennessee River, another force, styled the Army of the Mississippi, commanded by Major-General John Pope, was moving directly down the Mississippi River, against that portion of the rebel line which, under Generals Polk and Pillow, had fallen back from Columbus, Kentucky, to Island Number10 and New Madrid. This army had the full cooperation of the gunboat fleet, commanded by Admiral Foote, and was assisted by the high flood of that season, which enabled General Pope, by great skill and industry, to open a canal from a point above Island Number10 to New Madrid below, by which he interposed between the rebel army and its available line of supply and retreat. At the very time that we were fighting the bloody battle on the Tennessee River, General Pope and Admiral Foote were bombarding the batteries on Island Number10, and the Kentucky sh

several days, and was regarded then, as now, one of the first engineers of the age, perfectly competent to advise me on the strategy and objects of the new campaign. Hie expressed himself delighted with the high spirit of the army, the steps already taken, by which we had captured Savannah, and he personally inspected some of the forts, such as Thunderbolt and Causten's Bluff, by which the enemy had so long held at bay the whole of our navy, and had defeated the previous attempts made in April, 1862, by the army of General Gillmore, which had bombarded and captured Fort Pulaski, but had failed to reach the city of Savannah. I think General Barnard expected me to invite him to accompany us northward in his official capacity; but Colonel Poe, of my staff, had done so well, and was so perfectly competent, that I thought it unjust to supersede him by a senior in his own corps. I therefore said nothing of this to General Barnard, and soon after he returned to his post with General Grant

Defence of General Benham. see the reduction of Fort Pulaski, Vol. IV. rebellion record. after the fall of Fort Pulaski, in April, 1862, for the rest of the month it appeared impossible to effect any thing against the enemy with the few troops then available in this district, stretching along nearly two hundred miles of coast, from St. Augustine, Florida, to North-Edisto River, South-Carolina. These troops did not consist of more than about fifteen thousand effective men. At the close of April, the barge crew of General Ripley escaped from Charleston and were brought to Port Royal. They represented the troops and defences of Charleston to be very weak, comprising not more than five or six thousand men altogether, and those for a large portion raw troops or boys; so that General Benham then conceived a plan for attacking that city, which was at once informally laid before General Hunter, Commodore Du Pont, and others, and appea
ion which official authority could make, and the eager readiness of personal affection, to hand over tenderly the subject of disease and suffering from the one to the other, to supply the lack of home and love to those for whom no home and no love waited and watched, was left to the considerate wisdom and the prompt and diligent kindness of hearts glowing with a generous patriotism and Christian devotion. To do this great work the New England Soldiers' Relief Association was organized in April, 1862. A suitable building was provided, and the work placed in trustworthy hands. I am sure that a concise statement of the duties this Association has performed, as the almoner of their bounty, cannot be wearisome or uninteresting to those whose liberal and unsparing charity has furnished the means of all its usefulness. From the ninth day of April, 1862, to the first day of September, 1865, we have received, registered, lodged, fed, aided, and clothed sick, wounded, and disabled soldier
