by the Second and Fifteenth Arkansas regiments, was carried to the rear by hand by men belonging to that regiment, and delivered to Lieutenant Shannon, commanding Swett's battery. The other pieces from which the enemy had been driven (the horses attached to them being either killed or disabled), we were compelled to leave behind when we retired. This engagement lasted nearly two hours. In the fight many gallant officers and privates were killed and wounded. Among the first was Colonel L. Featherston, commanding Fifth and Thirteenth Arkansas regiments, who fell, mortally wounded, while gallantly leading his regiment, and Lieutenant-Colonel Baucum, commanding Eighth Arkansas and First Louisiana regiments, severely wounded, while carrying the colors at the head of his regiment. Late in the evening I was ordered to the extreme right, on the prolongation of the line occupied by General Cheatham, facing westward, with Walthall's brigade on my left. Moving forward I ascertained that
shes of the dead, and immortality to the names of the defenders of the lovely South. Early in the action Captain Jefferson was sent to reconnoiter the enemy and was taken prisoner and is still in their hands. I respectfully call the attention of the general to the praiseworthy conduct of Colonels Gratiot, Carroll and Dockery; also to Lieutenant-Colonels Neal and Provence, the former of whom was badly wounded, and the latter continually in the midst of the battle; also to Majors Ward and Featherston. Governor Churchill's account, published August, 1897, further indicates the part Arkansas took in the Battle among the Ozarks. He wrote: My regiment was 400 to 500 strong; at least, that was about the number I took into action. In conversation with General Price he told me that my regiment undoubtedly saved the battle. Coming to his assistance at the time I did, when he had been forced back by superior numbers, gave his men renewed courage and him time to reform his line and
of Col. A. L. Hutchisor served in Cleburne's division at Ringgold gap and the retreat through Georgia. A second Nineteenth Arkansas infantry was organized in Nashville, Ark., the latter part of the year 1861, electing as officers Col C. L. Dawson, Lieut.--Col. P. R. Smith, Maj. Joseph Anderson. The company commanders were: A, Captain Castleman; B, Capt. Gabe Stewart; C, Captain Spars; D, Capt. J. H. Carter; E, Capt. Nathan Eldridge; F, Capt. D. H. Hamiter; G, Capt. D. C. Cowling; H, Captain Featherston; J, Capt. B. H. Kinsworthy; K, Captain Herndon. The regiment participated in the battle of Elkhorn Tavern, and the defense of Arkansas Post, where it surrendered to Sherman, and was subsequently exchanged at City Point, Va., in May following. It was consolidated with Portlock's regiment, and Adjt. A. H. Hutchison was elected colonel. With the army of Tennessee it went through the Georgia campaign. The Twentieth Arkansas infantry was organized at Little Rock, August, 1861, with t
ving in Liddell's skirmishers. Colonel Gillespie, of the Seventh, was ordered to regain the woods, and the Fifth, Col. L. Featherston, Lieut.-Col. John E. Murray and Maj. P. V. Green, went to Gillespie's assistance, but the enemy was found in greaton, at this time, of Cleburne's division, Liddell's brigade embraced the Second regiment, Col. D. C. Govan; Fifth, Col. L. Featherston; Sixth and Seventh, Col D. A. Gillespie; Eighth, Col. J. H. Kelly; Thirteenth and Fifteenth, Col. J. E. Josey. Ch When Rosecrans advanced against Bragg in middle Tennessee in June, 1863, he found Liddell guarding Liberty gap. Colonel Featherston and Colonel Josey, at the gap, were warmly engaged on the 24th, when Capt. W. B. West, Thirteenth, was distinguishainst his westward flank, and compelled to retire. In this two hours fight there was heavy loss, among the killed Col. L. Featherston, commanding the Fifth and Thirteenth regiments, and among the wounded Lieutenant-Colonel Baucum, Eighth Arkansas.

railways which the Confederates still possessed in Mississippi and Alabama; Enterprise was the rendezvous for all prisoners liberated on parole, who, willingly or unwillingly, came to recompose under Hardee the old army formerly under the command of Pemberton. However, Johnston, learning on the 7th that Atlanta seemed to be threatened, immediately directed Gregg and McNair to move to that point. Their commands were replaced with the two brigades, yet prisoners on parole, under Adams and Featherston, while the Southern cavalry, waiting for the liberation of these brigades, made strong demonstrations in the direction of Jackson with the view of keeping the enemy away. Roddey, who had remained at Tuscumbia, also made similar movements on his side. The reinforcements thus furnished by Johnston had hardly arrived at Atlanta when they were led as far as Dalton, where their presence was to be more useful. However, on this occasion, which was to be decisive, Bragg had to be supplied wit
