when the army was surrendered at Greensboro. Brigades of Ross and Ector in 1865. By an order of Major-General Forrest, February 13, 1865, Gen. W. H. Jackson was ordered to consolidate and organize a division of cavalry, to be composed of three brigades, one of which was to be Ross' Texas brigade, to be commanded by Brig.-Gen. L. S. Ross, consisting of the Third, Sixth and Ninth Texas regiments, under Colonel Griffith, Eleventh and Seventeenth Arkansas consolidated, Willis' battalion and Cobb's scouts. At the same time Ector's brigade, under Col. David Coleman, was in French's division, under General Maury, commanding at Mobile, and the Texas regiments were commanded, Ninth by Col. Miles A. Dillard, Tenth cavalry dismounted by Capt. Jacob Zeigler, Fourteenth cavalry dismounted by Lieut.-Col. Abram Harris, and the Thirty-second dismounted by Capt. Nathan Anderson. Douglas' battery, under Lieut. Ben Hardin, was on duty in the Mobile defenses. Ector's brigade shared in the galla

Guthrie was informed that nine Federal launches had come up the river and captured the schooner Fashion, loading with cotton, and he immediately ordered steam up to go to the assistance of the schooner. In a few moments the boilers of the gunboat exploded, sinking the vessel, killing 16 persons and severely scalding many others. Among those who lost their lives was Midshipman Mallory, who had distinguished himself by pushing his way first aboard the frigate Congress at Hampton Roads, after she had struck her colors to the Virginia. The guns of the Chattahoochee were taken off and mounted in battery on the shore, and reinforcements being sent down by General Cobb, then in command in that district, the enemy was prevented from taking advantage of the disaster. In a short time the gunboat was raised and repaired so that she was of service thereafter in defending the river.

On August 26,described in the reports of the colonels commanding. Colonel Dilworth wrote: On the morning of the 19th inst. I was left with my regiment and a section of Cobb's battery at Glass' mill, with instructions from MajorGen-eral Breckinridge to dispose of my command so as to repel any attack of the enemy, and remain until I shoe First regiment Florida cavalry was composed of companies commanded by Captains Haddock, Roberts, Coxe, Cone, Summerlin, Clarke, Hughes, Footman, Hull, Harvey and Cobb, mustered in at different times and places from the 12th of May to the 1st of July, 1861. About the middle of August the regiment was stationed at Camp Davis, 6
He declined to be sent to the rear to take train until all his wounded men were embarked, and narrowly escaped capture through the faithfulness of a driver who took him in a commissary wagon after the last train had left. He was unfit for duty during the subsequent campaigns of General Hood. Soon after the army was ordered to North Carolina, his wound being partially healed, he started to rejoin his brigade; but his progress being interfered with by the Federal movements, he reported to General Cobb at Columbus, and was assigned to duty. When Wilson's Federal troops entered Columbus he made his escape with General Toombs to Eufaula, and soon afterward hostilities ceased. General Finley then returned to Florida and lived for a time in Lake City. In 1875 he removed to Jacksonville. He served in Congress from 1875 to 1879. In 1879 he was again elected but the seat was contested and given to his opponent. In 1887 he was appointed by Governor Perry to fill a vacancy in the United St

Cobb's battery and a number of detached soldiers, numbering about 500, came up and fell into our line of battle. As all the geee to act independently, we concluded to stop the Federal forces at this point till darkness should arrest their advance. Cobb's battery opened upon the enemy vigorously, and I directed Major Caswell to deploy his Georgia battalion of sharpshooters , Maj. W. M. Shy; First Tennessee battalion, Maj. Stephen H. Colms; his own gallant regiment, the Thirtieth Tennessee, and Cobb's battalion of artillery, composed of Cobb's, Slocumb's and Mebane's batteries.

It was a gallant action, and the names of the participants will live forever. Turner won promotion, if he did not receive it.

army, the single rule of three will give us 23,523 men as Lee's strength in infantry and artillery at the battle of Sharpsburg. This is, of course, on the supposition that the ratio in the twenty-six brigades was the same for the other twenty-four. Let us examine this by the light from the reports of the brigades themselves, so far as they are given: Robert Ransom's, 1,600; Lawton's, 1,150; Wofford's, 854; Rodes's, 800; Barksdale, 800; Walker, 700; Trimble, 700; Hays, 550; Benning, 400; Cobb, 250; Stonewall, 250; Evans, 209; Kemper, 350; Garnett, 200; total, 8,813. The single rule of three gives the strength of the forty brigades on the ratio of these fourteen, to be 25, 180. So the approximate results reached from the reports of division and brigade commanders differ only by 1,557 men. Now let us see what estimate we can get from the reports of regimental commanders, so far as given in this same Volume XIII. We have: Eleventh Georgia regiment, 140; Eighteenth Georgia

st-bellum mortality among Confederates. Address delivered before the Confederate Survivors' Association at its Quarterly meeting in Augusta, Ga., Aug. 2d, 1887. By Col. Charles C. Jones, Jr., Ll.D., President of the Association. Comrades,—Since our pleasant reunion on the 26th of April last, five of our companions have joined the legions encamped on the further shore. Robert Wallace, second lieutenant of the Washington Artillery, died on the 10th of May; J. C. Allen private in Company A, Cobb's Legion of Cavalry, on the 28th of the same month; William Delane, private in Company A, Fifth regiment Georgia infantry, on the 9th of June; Charles A. Platt, captain of the same company, on the 21st of July, memorable as the anniversary of the first battle of Manassas, and to-day we receive the afflictive intelligence that our comrade, Theodore D. Caswell, Lieutenant-Colonel of the Second Battalion, Georgia Sharpshooters, is lying dead in Asheville, North Carolina. The strong hand of m

re it could come into action. Its horses killed in the ford blocked the way and halted the column under a most accurate and intense fire. Bridges' guns slackened, however, sensibly, after the Fifth Company got their pieces well into play, and gradually they ceased altogether after an hour's contest. During this lull the Fifth Company moved its guns by hand to the front fully 100 yards, when another battery (Schultz's) was seen coming into position, where had stood Bridges'. Three guns of Cobb's Kentucky Battery re enforced the Fifth Company in the woods on its right, and soon a fire more terrific than ever raged between the combined batteries on each side. After half an hour of this contest, upon repeated orders of General Breckinridge to retire the guns and join his column that was again on the move to the right, the Fifth Company limbered its guns under fire, recrossed the ford, and took its position in the column that was marching out and giving way to Wheeler's division of ca

hrough the woods by a path, which we thought agreed with the directions of Mr. Zentmeyer; after following this path for a short distance we met a gentleman who informed us we were going directly away from the point to which we were aiming. As he was going in that direction for a short distance he volunteered to act as our guide; we joyfully accepted his proposal and followed him through a by-path which led us over quite a rugged road, at length we came out upon a main road which led us by Mr. Cobb's, Mr. Foster's and Major James Penn's, at this latter point our guide left us after giving us the necessary directions. After going about a mile and a half we came to a point where the road made three forks; we took the central one. Proceeding down this road for a mile and failing to arrive at a church which we were told would be upon this road, two miles from Major Penn's, we came to the conclusion that we had lost the road again. We sent out scouts to find out and their report confirm
