apter 8: General Butler's rural Enterprises Richard Taylor in West Louisiana campaign on the Lafourche battle ourpose of dispersing the force assembled there under Gen. Richard Taylor. He had already resolved upon placing the command unt command of Gen. Braxton Bragg. On August 20th Maj.-Gen. Richard Taylor, already distinguished in the Virginia campaigns,ordered to the command of the district of West Louisiana. Taylor was an unknown quantity for Butler. Banks was to learn hio his painful cost before another year. Another Arminius, Taylor loved to fight on his State's soil against his State's foep banks were made use of in Weitzel's coming fight. General Taylor had had his hands full with his new command of westernalaya and through it into the adjacent network of waters. Taylor knew himself to be weak both in guns and men, but worse th gunboats carrying 27 guns, was highly complimented by General Taylor. This series of affairs was, in every respect, credit

Kirby Smith's command had been broadened to embrace the TransMis-sissippi department, and heroic Richard Taylor had flitted to Opelousas where, however, he was not to stay many days. Taylor had been a much-traveled man over the Taylor had been a much-traveled man over the battlefields of the Confederacy. Banks had left New York with 20,000 men. In New Orleans he found about 10,000, with eight batteries of artillery. These combined gave him 30,000 men—not a small force considering the limited ranks of the Confedera that huge army, overwhelmed by Generals Snow and Ice. Mouton, to perish gloriously at Mansfield, has this to say for Richard Taylor: It is due to the truth of history that I shall here record the fact that the salvation of our retiring army was entirely owing to the bold and determined attack of our troops under the immediate command of Major-General Taylor, he leading the van upon the enemy, at early dawn—thoroughly arresting the advance of the whole force of the enemy, 8,000-to 10,000 strong,
and ordnance stores, was a striking proof that Taylor was not only a power before an enemy, but a ca agreement with General Grant.

In the fall of 1862 all the military talk had come from a plan proposed by General Ruggles, commanding t and Port Hudson. It came from the presence of a giant among dwarfs. The giant was cool; the dwarfs alone excited. General Taylor, feeling rusty on land, heard a proposition from Maj. J. L. Brent, his aide-de-camp, to destroy the Indianola, at thehis order of evacuation by reason of a hope which had, in the last days of June, sprung up from the known presence of Richard Taylor, back on his old fighting ground in lower Lousiana. Taylor, in this campaign, had a variety of reasons. One of thesTaylor, in this campaign, had a variety of reasons. One of these was the gathering of beef cattle for the relief of the starving garrison of the Port. In a campaign, Dick Taylor always seemed to deal in surprises, even to his friends.

It has been seen how the Twenty-fourth Louisiana (Crescent regiment) had made history at Shiloh As the consolidated Crescent regiment, it afterward made more history on brilliant fields nearer home. These, together with Semmes' and Ralston's batteries, afterward reported to Gen. Richard Taylor, in the Trans-Mississippi department. Halleck, able tactician in the closet, was uncertain in the field. His deliberate movements had no effect upon General Bragg, who had already sent his troops on the railroad via Mobile to Chattanooga. Bragg, by reason of this surprise, was enabled to control events until Grant, cutting free from Vicksburg, could drive him off. Here Bragg remained concentrating an army, gathering troops around him, tried in the war, long in the field, seasoned

Hood having failed to draw Sherman into Tennessee, Beauregard, now close at hand, was stirring him to a bold stroke. General Beauregard had been assigned on October 2, 1864, to the department of the West, including the department commanded by Hood and that of Alabama, Mississippi and East Louisiana, to which Lieut.-Gen. Richard Taylor had been assigned. Neither of the subaltern commanders was displeased at the selection of Beauregard, who had but lately stepped from the masterly defense of Charleston. It was not a promotion for G. T. Beauregard, only a new field in which to show his tact and rich military experience. This was nothing less than to give a fatal blow to Thomas, organizing at Nashville. Hood willingly undertook the enterprise, but unfortunately was hindered by perilous delay. In his welcome ad

Following the victory at Manassas, occurred some minor affairs at the front. At Lewinsville, September 12th, J. E. B.

Here Rosser had an encounter with Charles Griffin's six him from the valley. Jackson was about seeing the end of hopelessly confusing the enemy in that region. Suppose we follow in the footsteps of the great soldier. We do so the more freely, since Richard Taylor, now in command of the Louisiana brigade, is riding the same stirring road, whose mile posts are to become victories.
