orge H. Thomas, majors. Hardee was afterward a lieutenant-general in the Confederate army, and was always found equal to the occasion. Thomas is equally well known as a distinguished general on the Northern side. Among the captains were Earl Van Dorn, E. Kirby Smith, and N. G. Evans, who were generals in the Confederate army; and I. N. Palmer, George Stoneman, and R. W. Johnson, who held the same rank in the Union army. Among the subalterns, John B. Hood, Charles W. Field, Chambliss, and Phifer, became Southern generals; and K. Garrard and others attained the same place in the Northern army. It is doubtful whether any other one regiment furnished an equal number of distinguished officers to the two contending armies during the great civil war. McCulloch, in his disappointment at not receiving a colonel's commission, refused the position of major tendered him. He had been a gallant and enterprising leader of partisan troops, and deserved well of his country. His nomination was

, Ky., Cave City, December 19, 1861. sir: At eight o'clock A. M., on the 17th inst., I moved toward Woodsonville for the purpose of breaking up the railroad from the vicinity of that place southward. My force consisted of one thousand one hundred infantry and four pieces of artillery. When within two and a half miles of Woodsonville, concealed from the enemy's view, I halted the column and ordered forward Col. Terry's Rangers, to occupy the heights of my right, left, and front; and Major Phifer's Cavalry to watch the crossings of Green River, still further to my left. These orders having been executed, and no force of the enemy or pickets seen, I advanced the column till the right reached the railroad. This brought me within three-quarters of a mile of the river and the enemy, but still concealed, except a small body of cavalry upon the extreme left. Here a company of rangers was detached to observe the enemy from Rowlett's Knob, which was to my right, across the railroad.
l Moore, and acting Brigadier-Generals Cabell, Phifer, Gates, and Colbert, my high appreciation of te enemy were carried without check. Moore and Phifer at once pushed on towards Corinth in pursuit oittle thrown back. Cabell was sent to support Phifer's right, now separated by a wide space from Mon towards his left, until his line united with Phifer's; and the troops lay on their arms in these piring upon my left became sharp, and Moore and Phifer were at once advanced. Cabell's brigade was m more than an hour by the remnants of Moore's, Phifer's, and Cabell's brigades, and by the batteriesptly. After arriving on the field I found General Phifer's brigade, although much exhausted from hen on the east side of the river, and where General Phifer's brigade, with my battery of artillery, w moved by the left flank and placed in rear of Phifer's, sheltered by timber in front.

om the consolidated report of General Sherman's force on November 10, 1861, gives an aggregate present and absent of 49,586. (Rebellion Records, Vol. IV, page 349.) On the 28th of October, 1861, General Johnston moved his headquarters from Nashville to Bowling Green, and assumed immediate command of what was styled the army corps of Central Kentucky. The organization of his forces then was as follows: First division, Major-General W. J. Hardee. Cavalry: Wirt Adams' regiment and Phifer's battalion. Artillery: Swett's, Trigg's, Hubbard's and Byrne's batteries. First brigade, infantry, Brig.-Gen. T. C. Hindman: Second Arkansas regiment, Lieut.-Col. Bocage; Sixth Arkansas regiment, Col. A. T. Hawthorn; Arkansas battalion, Lieut.-Col. John S. Marmaduke. Second brigade, infantry, Col. P. R. Cleburne: First Arkansas regiment, Colonel Cleburne; Fifth Arkansas regiment, Col. D. C. Cross; Seventh Mississippi regiment, Col. J. J. Thornton; Tennessee Mountain Rifles, Col. B.
n sent by forced marches from Jackson, Tennessee, to get in its front. It was necessary for it to cross the Tombigbee river and then the Hatchie. The first was crossed without opposition, but when the second was reached it was found to be held by the enemy. Thus the army was hemmed in between two rivers and two armies—a river and an army before, and a river and an army behind it—and there was no other known avenue of escape. When the crossing of the Hatchie at Davis' bridge was reached, Phifer's and Martin's brigades, of Van Dorn's corps, charged and forced a passage, but before they could form on the other side were charged by the Federals and driven back upon the river, where some were shot, some drowned and others escaped by swimming. The Federals immediately crossed, formed and continued the charge. Colonel Cockrell's brigade met and checked them. General Price ordered a retreat of 400 yards at a time, each time a new line of battle being formed. General Bowen held the rea
rces engaged, in advancing on Woodsonville put out the Rangers on the neighboring heights and Major Phifer's cavalry to watch the crossings of Green river. Later Colonel Terry, being temporarily leftcolonel, Brig.-Gen. John C. Moore, Maury's division; the Sixth and Ninth cavalry, dismounted, in Phifer's brigade, same division; and the Tenth, Eleventh and Fourteenth Texas cavalry, dismounted, Andr enemy's stronghold. He sleeps, and Glory is his sentinel. The Texans of Moore's brigade and Phifer's, in Maury's division, were among the first to engage the enemy on the 3d, and the two brigades sharpshooters alone, under heavy fire, defended the front of the division. Toward noon Moore, Phifer and Cabell led their brigades into the town in a desperate charge, and held their position untilong the first engaged, and was gallantly reinforced by the Sixth and Ninth and other commands of Phifer's brigade, under Col. L. S. Ross. Joined by Cabell's Arkansans, these remnants of brigades made
ose to rank, and at the age of twenty-four, on May 4,862, was commissioned colonel of the Sixth Texas regiment of cavalry. He was immediately assigned, by Major- General Jones, to command of the brigade, but modestly declined that honor, and General Phifer was subsequently assigned. Colonel Ross took part in the battle of Corinth, Miss., October, 1862, and when, on the retreat, Moore's brigade, in advance, was met, beyond the Hatchie bridge by a fresh Federal force, Ross, in command of Phifer'Phifer's brigade, went into the fight as a forlorn hope, and maintained it against great odds until the army could be withdrawn by another route. The war department at Richmond requested General Maury to give the name of the officer in charge of this brilliant action, which he did. Gen. Jos. E. Johnston, without the knowledge of Ross, wrote to the secretary of war and had him appointed brigadier-general, the commission bearing date December 21, 1863. On different occasions he was commended for gallan
