beginning to return the fire not to shoot, and made signals to the supposed friends. Young Mangum, who had sprung to his feet at the sound of the firing, fell mortally wounded, and several others were killed or disabled. Not knowing what to do, the regiment fell back in some confusion to the point where it had entered the field, and the enemy advanced to recover the battery. On Kershaw's advance, however, the Sixth again went to the front, and some of them had the pleasure of seeing General Hagood and Captain Kemper of Kershaw's force turn the recaptured guns on their enemies. Shortly after this the arrival of Gen. Kirby Smith's forces on the enemy's right flank ended the battle. The Sixth lost 73 men in killed and wounded. Gen. William Smith, (Southern Historical Society's Papers, Vol. X, p. 439) falls into a grievous mistake about this regiment. He says, When driven back from the guns, neither the North Carolinians nor the Mississippians remained to renew the charge, but
es. Ryan's company was accepted, but failed. Whenever, however, any of Putnam's men showed themselves, the Fifty-first North Carolina opened upon them. Colonel Putnam was killed, and his force—approached in rear by some Georgians who, with General Hagood, had crossed over during the battle—was captured. General Taliaferro makes this favorable report of the Fifty-first regiment: Colonel McKethan's regiment, the Fifty-first North Carolina troops, redeemed the reputation of the Thirty-first. 28th of August, an infantry assault on the rifle-pits in front of Wagner was bravely met and repulsed by the two Confederate regiments there. General Taliaferro reports: Soon after dark he advanced upon the rifle-pits in front of Wagner, but General Hagood's forces were, fortunately, prepared to receive him. His mortar practice ceased and his infantry assaulted fiercely, but the position was held with courage and spirit, and success crowned the efforts of the brave men of the Sixty-first North
uregard says, he handled his command with that resolution and judgment for which he was conspicuous, formed his line with Hagood and Johnson on his left, and Clingman (North Carolina) and Corse on his right. At dawn he threw out skirmishers, and opened his artillery. The infantry attack began with an advance of Hagood's and Johnson's brigades. They went in with determination and success. Hagood's brigade captured five pieces of artillery and a number of prisoners, and the two brigades occupiHagood's brigade captured five pieces of artillery and a number of prisoners, and the two brigades occupied the enemy's works. But the enemy attacked Hoke's front with fierceness. Especially on Johnson's right was the fighting continuous, Generals Terry and Turner struggling tenaciously to hold their ground. General Clingman's and General Corse's brneral Hoke, to whom a permanent division, composed of Martin's and Clingman's North Carolina brigades and Colquitt's and Hagood's brigades, had been assigned, also reported to General Lee at Cold Harbor just in time to be of the utmost service to hi
. Next was the brigade of General Clingman, and still further the Georgia brigade of General Colquitt. For tedious weeks the great guns of the mighty fleet, close in upon the left flank, and the sharpshooters in front, made no impression upon General Hoke and his men. General Schofield, however, came to reinforce his lieutenant, and the landing of his forces made necessary the evacuation of Forts Caswell, Holmes, Campbell, Pender and Anderson. The garrisons from these forts and part of Hagood's brigade became engaged at Town creek, and for some time gallantly defied all efforts to push them aside. By the 7th of March, Hoke was near Kinston and part of the Southern army was at Smithfield. On that date Gen. D. H. Hill was ordered to take his own division and Pettus' brigade of Stevenson's division and move to Hoke's position for battle. Clayton's division of Lee's corps and the Junior reserves under Baker soon after reported to General Hill. On the 8th, Generals Hoke and Hill
s he can be sent to me with a division. Now, Petersburg and Richmond being threatened by Butler, he was called to that field, and joining Beauregard May 10th, was put in command of the six brigades sent forward to Drewry's bluff. Upon the further organization of the hastily-collected army he had charge of one of the three divisions, the front line being composed of his division and Ransom's. In the battle of May 16th he handled his command with resolution and judgment, one of his brigades, Hagood's, capturing five pieces of artillery. At Cold Harbor he held one of the most important parts of the Confederate line with his division, repelling repeated furious assaults, and again before Petersburg fought in the battles of June. From the Petersburg trenches he moved in December with his division to Wilmington to confront Butler, who was frightened away from Fort Fisher by part of his command. After the landing of the second expedition under Terry, he advanced his two brigades and drov
