Shortly after the war, I met in New Orleans Colonel Fullerton, of the United States Army; he was Schofield's adjutant general at the time of these events, in connection with which he wrote me the following: New Orleans, La., October 20th, 1865. to General Hood. General:--The only body of United States troops on the battlefield of Spring Hill, Tennessee, on the 29th of November, 1864, was the Second Division of the Fourth Army Corps. I think the division was less than four thousand (4000) strong. There were no other United States troops in or about Spring Hill on that day but one or two hundred cavalrymen and perhaps fifty or sixty infantrymen (post troops). The rest of General Schofield's Army was in the vicinity of Col

onounced by Dr. Brown-Sequard to be Paraplegia, or paralysis of the spinal cord, resulting from the fever. For the four years following he remained in much the same condition, and was chiefly dependent for locomotion upon a wheeled chair. During two years of this time he remained at his own home, but was removed, during the summer of 1865, to the shores of Buzzard's Bay, in hopes of benefit from sea air. This failing, he embarked with his father on board the bark Fredonia for Fayal, October 20, 1865, and remained on that island till May 1, 1867, with one short visit to St. Michael's. He then returned to Boston, and continued to improve in strength until he could walk without crutches. In November, however, he took a very severe cold, and his enfeebled constitution soon lost all it had gained. He died December 17, 1867, at the age of twenty-six, having suffered nearly five years of exhausting illness, the result of less than five months of military service. There are many who
