was done without molestation from the enemy. On the morning of the ninth the regiment was marched to its present camp. Before closing this report I would state that I am indebted to all my line-officers for the hearty, united, and determined support given me during all this time. Where all did their duty so well and nobly, it would not be correct to particularize. All deserve honorable mention. It gives me great pleasure, however, ever, to call attention to the daring conduct of private Robert Brown, of company K, who shot the lead-horse of the cannon captured by the regiment, thereby preventing its escape, and private James Robb, of company H, who seized the colors when the sergeant was wounded, and bore them until relieved by color-corporal William Taylor.

Brownists, The name given to those Puritans who went to Holland, and afterwards emigrated to New England; so named from their leader, Robert Brown. The sect sprang up towards the close of the sixteenth century. As early as 1580, Brown began to inveigh against the ceremonies of the Church of England. Being opposed by the bishops, he and his congregation left England, and settled in Zealand, where they formed a church upon a model to suit themselves.

Being opposed by the bishops, he and his congregation left England, and settled in Zealand, where they formed a church upon a model to suit themselves. The seed he had planted in England grew so abundantly that at the close of the century there were about 20,000 Brownists in the realm. Of that sect were Rev. Mr. Robinson, Elder Brewster, and the congregation at Leyden in 1620. The founder of this sect was born about the year 1550, and died about 1630. His family were closely connected with Cecil, afterwards Lord Burleigh. Educated at Cambridge, as soon as he left college he began a vigorous opposition to the whole discipline and liturgy of the Established Church. He taught th

The Daily Dispatch: January 2, 1862., [Electronic resource], The Pensacola fight — official report of Colonel Brown. (search)
The Pensacola fight — official report of Colonel Brown. From the following report of old Harvey Brown it will be seen that the characteristic disease of all Yankeedom — blustering and balderdash — has disseminated itself through every vein of that old humbug. Can Lincoln's minions much longer put up with such trash as these lying proclamations from their leaders: Headq'rs Department of Florida, Fort Pickens, Nov. 25, 1861. General: That Fort Pickens has been beleaguered by the rebels for the last nine months, and that it was daily threatened with the fate of Sumter, is a fact notorious to the whole world. Since its occupancy by Lieut. Slemmer the rebels have been surrounding it with batteries, and daily arming them with the heaviest and most efficient guns known to our service — guns stolen from the United States--until they considered this fort as virtually their own, its occupancy being only a question of time. I have been in command since the 16th of Apri
