Lyon marched into Sprt, and its numbers were greatly exaggerated to General McCulloch, commanding the men from Arkansas. McCulloch McCulloch had fought Indians in Texas and the Mexican mestizos in Mexico, and he knew the difference between inexperience and urged an immediate advance. At this juncture McCulloch received dispatches from General Polk that a largeadrid would march toward Rolla to intercept Lyon.

iverting attention from other movements of Federal armies in Missouri, to try the strength of his newly-constructed gunboats, and test the weight of the metal of General Polk's artillery at Columbus. The movement in Missouri he attempted to aid was the threatened march of Fremont, Lane and Sturgis against Price, after the battle of Lexington, when Price had caused them each to go to ditching in anticipation of an attack, while he was really crossing the Osage to make a junction again with McCulloch, at Neosho. That the engagement brought on at Belmont by Grant was a second thought of the Federal commander, to give diversion to his officers and men, and furnish evidence of activity to the expectant people who were demanding that the war be prosecuted, there is no reason to doubt. The disadvantage of the defensive policy is that it gives the aggressor liberty to pick his own time, place, and opportunity for directing his blows. The armies of both sections had been lying inactive.

llas. They soon became exceedingly active. . . Missourians in Arkansas, belonging to the old State Guard, were strongly desirous to revive that organization. Embarrassment on that score was prevented by accepting their general officers—Brigadier-Generals McBride and Rains—into the Confederate service, conditioned upon the approval of the secretary of war. . . . Being apprised that there were large bodies of troops in Texas unemployed, I applied to Brigadier-Generals Hebert and [H. E.] McCulloch to send or, if practicable, bring them to me. The action of both these officers was prompt, liberal, and patriotic, and I take this opportunity to acknowledge my obligation to them. They sent me many fine regiments, some of which came armed, and others were armed by me. In view of the dangers which threatened to overwhelm my district, I decided that all cotton in Arkansas and north Louisiana was in imminent danger of falling into the hands of the enemy. Being of that opinion, it was
Missouri fell back before a large force of Federals under General Curtis, and made a stand at Elkhorn tavern in Benton county. On the 4th of March, the regiment marched to reinforce Price, forming part of Hebert's brigade, under command of Gen. Ben McCulloch, and took part in the battle of the 7th. The regiment entered into action soon after General McCulloch's death, passing the body of the dead general in their charge. The greater part of the Confederate forces which retreated to Frog BayouGeneral McCulloch's death, passing the body of the dead general in their charge. The greater part of the Confederate forces which retreated to Frog Bayou, consisting of Missouri and Arkansas regiments, were transferred under Generals Price and Van Dorn across the Mississippi river in April, 1862. The Sixteenth was brigaded with four Missouri regiments, formerly commanded by Col. Francis Cockrell, which were the flower of Missouri, and at Corinth were again united in a brigade commanded by Gen. Henry Little, afterward killed at Iuka. While at Corinth the Sixteenth was reorganized and the following officers chosen: Col. David Provence, formerl

Cleburne had as yet seen but little of the pride of glorious war. Constructing plank roads through the lowlands, a depressing and painful retreat in the winter, and guarding and forwarding pork in the rear, were attended by no pomp and circumstance. News of the defeat of Van Dorn at Elkhorn Tavern, Ark., March 7th, and the death of McCulloch and McIntosh, added to the general gloom. The movement of the enemy from Paducah up the Tennessee river had already commenced. Gen. C. F. Smith assembled four divisions at Savannah, Tenn., on the 13th; Bell began his march from Nashville on the 1st, and Sherman disembarked troops at Pittsburg landing on the 16th and made a reconnoissance to Monterey, nearly half way to Corinth. The organization of the army of the Mississippi, April 6 and 7, 1862, was in four corps, under Polk, Bragg
as the Twenty-first Arkansas, and was elected its colonel. This regiment was assigned to the brigade commanded by Gen. Ben McCulloch. In the summer of 1861 the command was led into Missouri, joining Price in time to participate in the battle of Wilson's Creek. General McCulloch in his official report speaks in very high terms of the services of Colonel McRae in this battle, saying: He led his regiment into action with the greatest coolness, being always in the front of his men.
