otts in battery near the front and center of Stanley's line. The order to cease firing having been given the artillery, Captain Williams, by your direction, fired three 30-pounder Parrott shells into Corinth, which we subsequently learned fell into the center of the village, killing a railroad engineer and wounding 4 men and creating the impression among their troops that we were about to open our batteries and bombard the place. Nothing further transpired along the lines, save that Capt. L. H. Marshall ascertained and reported that the rebel battery opposite Stanley's front was on a high knoll south of the Memphis and Charleston Railroad, near the water-tank, and that it was commanded by the high ground across the creek on the road to Corinth. A battery in front of Paine's center was constructed, to aid in subduing this rebel work. During the evening of the 29th there seemed to be remarkable activity in the rebel camp. Cars were heard running from the north and west and passin
services during the reduction of this place, entitle him to special notice. Col. J. W. Bissell, engineer regiment, rendered me most valuable service, both before and during the bombardment of the place. He conducted the erection of the heavy batteries, and remained in them until the enemy evacuated the place. Major Lothrop, Chief of Artillery, has distinguished himself throughout the operations. My personal staff, Major Butler, Assistant Adjutant-General, Major C. A. Morgan, and Capt. L. H. Marshall, Aids-de-Camp, and Major Corse, Inspector-General, were prompt and efficient in conveying my orders under fire of the enemy. I transmit, enclosed, the reports of division and brigade commanders immediately concerned in the final operations, as also of Capt. Mower, commanding in the batteries, and of Major Lothrop, Chief of Artillery. Col. J. W. Bissell, Engineers, has been too incessantly occupied to make a written report, but desires to mention the following officers of this regim
en of miscreants at a blow. Sounding Gap is situated about forty miles south-east from Piketon, and is connected, by a good turnpike-road, with Gladesville and Abingdon, Va. A road has been cut through the Gap, which is now entirely obstructed on the western slope by large trees, fallen across it by the rebels. Being the only channel of communication for wagons between South-eastern Kentucky and South-western Virginia, it was of course an important point in the strategic policy of General Marshall. Our march occupied two entire days, and was attended with the severest labor. The nature of the roads, being merely paths, following the creeks and rivulets, the constant rain and snow soaking both officers and men to the skin, and the fathomless, endless mud, formed a combination of untoward circumstances, difficult to overcome. Nevertheless, after two days of wading and splashing, the whole expedition arrived safely at Elkton Creek, two miles below the Gap, about ten o'clock o
exceeding one mile. Entrenchments for infantry were also thrown up along the shore, between the batteries. On his return up the river, Captain Walke silenced the enemy's battery opposite Point Pleasant, and a small infantry force, under Capt. L. H. Marshall, landed and spiked the guns. On the night of the sixth, at my urgent request, Commodore Foote ordered the Pittsburgh also to run down to New-Madrid. She arrived at daylight, having, like the Carondelet, come through without being touchedaged them, and no labor was too much for their energy. They have conducted and completed a work which will be memorable in the history of this war. My own personal staff, Major Speed Butler, Assist. Adj.-General, Major C. A. Morgan, and Captain L. H. Marshall, Aids O. W. Nixon, Medical Director, and Major J. M. Case, Inspector-General, rendered an important service, and were, in all respects, zealous and efficient. Our success was complete and overwhelming, and it gives me profound satisfac
the rain still continued. This cavalry had had a long march without intermission, and being the greater part of the cavalry of the army, its return without delay was necessary. These considerations determined me to leave before daylight with what had been accomplished. I accordingly retired by the same route. As day dawned I found, among the great number of prisoners, Pope's field Quartermaster, Major Goulding, and ascertained that the chief Quartermaster and Pope's Aid-de-camp, (Colonel L. H. Marshall,) narrowly escaped the same fate. The men of the command had secured Pope's uniform, his horses and equipments money chests, and a great variety of uniforms and personal baggage; but what was of peculiar value was the despatch book of General Pope, which contained information of great importance to us, throwing light upon the strength, movements, and designs of the enemy, and disclosing General Pope's own views against his ability to defend the line of the Rappahannock. These and m
George H. Gordon, From Brook Farm to Cedar Mountain, Chapter 10: General Banks's orders and responsibility. (search)
This verbal order, as given by Banks before the committee, agrees in substance with Major Pelouze's version communicated to me under date of April 7, 1875, in reply to my letter, asking for the exact words. His answer is as follows :-- Washington, D. C., April 7, 1875. General George H. Gordon, 7 Court Square, Boston. My Dear General,--In reply to yours of the 2d inst., I will state that I have examined my retained papers, and found a true copy of the verbal orders delivered by Colonel L. H. Marshall to General Banks on the morning of the day of the battle of Cedar Mountain, as follows :-- Culpeper, 9.45 A. M., Aug. 9, 1862. From Colonel Lewis Marshall. General Banks to remove to the front immediately, assume command of all forces in the front, deploy his skirmishers if the enemy advances, and attack him immediately as he approaches, and be reinforced from here. I am, General, truly yours, L. H. Pelouze. Though Pope denies that he sent Banks this order, I do not t

Several in the above list have been rewarded by Lincoln with promotion. Two of them, Majors George H. Thomas and Lawrence P. Graham, g officer felt quite confident of being able to sustain himself against any further attacks until reinforcements could arrive. They were certain to be there on Saturday night, and consisted of a regiment of Illinois troops, under command of Colonel Marshall, part of the Johnson county Home Guards, and part of a regiment of Home Guards, under command of Colonel McClurg--numbering in all about 1,200 men. This force would enable them to drive the Confederates from that section of the State, when a
