eneral Johnston. No. 93—(666) In Cantey's brigade, General Shelley commanding, Walthall's division, army of Tennessee, Gen. J. B. Hood commanding, December 10, 1864. No. 100—(773) General order, No. 13, April 9, 1865, leaves regiment in Shelley's brigade, near Smithfield, N. C. No. 104—(1134) Gen. P. D. Roddey, March 20, 1865, says he had requested transfer of regiment to his command. The Twenty-Seventh Alabama infantry. The Twenty-seventh Alabama regiment was organized at Fort Heiman, in Tennessee, in the winter of 1861. It was sent to Fort Henry, then to Fort Donelson, where it was captured, though many of the command, being sick in the hospital, escaped the surrender and joined a Mississippi regiment. The captured men were exchanged in September, 1862, and were at Port Hudson during the winter. The regiment fought bravely at Baker's Creek, May 16, 1863, in the Jackson trenches, and in the retreat across Pearl river; passed the winter of 1863 at Canton. In t

Lavinia, and on the 18th sending Buford with the Kentucky brigade to Lexington to watch General Hatch. With his escort and Rucker's brigade Forrest moved from Corinth on the 19th and was joined by Chalmers at Jackson, Tenn., with about 250 men of McCulloch's brigade and 300 of Mabry's. After remaining in peaceable possession of the region he had entered for about two weeks, Chalmers was ordered to proceed to the Tennessee river and co-operate with Buford, who was blockading the river at Fort Heiman and Paris Landing. Here the Confederate forces were brilliantly successful in capturing Federal steamers. The Mazeppa, with two barges in tow, was the first to make an appearance, and, being disabled by the artillery, made for the opposite shore, when the crew escaped. She was then towed over and the valuable cargo of military stores removed, after which the vessel was burned. The steamer Anna was the next victim, then the gunboat Undine and the transports Cheeseman and Venus. On
second and third assault, the enemy retired, leaving his dead and wounded on the field. He had met three bloody repulses. The principal sufferer on the part of Heiman's brigade was Maney's battery; it was fought without protection and with skill and courage, but his loss, chiefly from sharpshooters, was such that he was afterwa supporting infantry retreated precipitately before the storm of grape and canister poured into their ranks from both batteries. Two hours before this assault on Heiman's brigade, General Buckner reports, the enemy made a vigorous attack on Hanson's position (the Second Kentucky, Col. Roger W. Hanson), but was repulsed with heaved and wounded, among them Col. Thomas M. Gordon of the Third, wounded, and the accomplished Lieut.-Col. W. P. Moore, mortally wounded. General Pillow, leaving Heiman's brigade in the trenches, with the balance of the left division, assisted by Forrest's cavalry, engaged the enemy hotly for two hours and succeeded in driving hi
ew hours after the opening of the battle the efficiency of the troops was seriously affected, and some of them were made the victims of great injustice. The retirement to Corinth was made in good order. No pursuit was made or attempted. General Beauregard reports the Confederate loss at 10,699. Swinton fixes the loss of Grant and Buell in killed, wounded and captured, at 15,000. In May, 1862, Colonel Lowe, afterward brigadiergen-eral, commanding the Federal forces at Forts Henry and Heiman, sent out an expedition in the direction of Paris and Dresden, for the capture of medical supplies reported to have been forwarded from Paducah to the Confederate army. The expedition, consisting of three companies of cavalry, was commanded by Maj. Carl Shaeffer de Boernstein. Col. Thomas Claiborne, Sixth Tennessee cavalry, with his own and the Seventh Tennessee, Col. W. H. Jackson, the whole force 1,250 strong, hearing of the Federal expedition, made pursuit from Paris, where he expected t
f our people from the presence and oppression of the petty commanders of the captured garrisons. On the 16th of October, Forrest's command moved into west Tennessee, and in a few days Buford instituted a blockade of the Tennessee river. Fort Heiman and Paris landing were objective points which now had Forrest's attention. On October 29th, with Chalmers' division, he reached Paris landing, where Buford's division and Lyon's brigade were already on the ground. As usual, his force was magen to insure the safety of Columbus, and 2,000 more for Paducah. Later, on the same day, he reported: The gunboat Undine captured and sunk at Paris landing. Lyon in command at that point with 4,000 men and seven pieces of artillery. Forrest at Heiman with 8,000 men, five 12-pounders and eighteen siege guns. He reported also the capture of the transport Venus, with troops and supplies. His fears multiplied Forrest's forces by four, and easily converted field into siege guns General Forres
e of the Fourth corps reached Athens, and Stanley was ordered to concentrate at Pulaski, until Schofield, who was moving from Resaca, by way of Nashville, could arrive. Sherman now repeated his former order: You must unite all your men into one army, and abandon all minor points, if you expect to defeat Hood. He will not attack posts, but march around them. But Thomas's way of making war was different from Sherman's. In the meantime, Forrest had moved north from Corinth, and reached Fort Heiman, on the Tennessee, seventy miles from the Ohio; here, he captured a gunboat and two transports with supplies. On the 2nd of November, he appeared before Johnsonville, the western terminus of a short railroad connecting Nashville with the Tennessee. This point was one of Thomas's bases of supplies, and the approach of Forrest created great consternation among the quartermasters. Gunboats and transports were fired to prevent their falling into the hands of the enemy, and stores to the v

ondition required for reinforcing this army, and thereby enabling it to resume the offensive. The reconstruction of the railroad from Nashville is therefore the first object to occupy Rosecrans' attention: the work is pushed with vigor. The task of guarding the city of Nashville and the railroad-track is entrusted to Steedman's division, recently arrived from Kentucky. The Cumberland being easily navigable above this city, and of great assistance in supplying Rosecrans with provisions, Forts Heiman, Henry, and Donelson, which dominate its course, are placed within the sphere of his command on the 25th of January. This riverroute is the more useful on account of the long railway line from Louisville to Nashville being greatly exposed to incursions from the enemy's guerillas. These partisan bands set the closest vigilance at defiance. Thus, for instance, since the opening of the Nashville and Murfreesborough branch on the 25th of January they have captured one train.

Buchanan's well known Secretary of the Interior, the Hon. Jacob M. Thompson, Mississippi millionaire, ex- Congressman from the very district on whose soil he now stood under a flag of truce, and a man still entitled to Northern respect, as the only one of the resigning secessionists who left Mr. Buchanan's cabinet without the stain of dishonor upon his name. The Colonel had been sent in by Gen. Beauregard to turn over to Gen. Halleck some sixty-two prisoners recently captured near Fort Heiman, Tenn., (and released under parole not to bear arms against the Confederacy until regularly exchanged,) and to see what Gen. Halleck would agree to in the way of a general system of exchanges. He was escorted by Beauregard's body- guard, a fine body of cavalry from New Orleans, under the command of Captain Dreux. It might be ungenerous, after the very pleasant interview we had, but our officers could not repress their suspicion that there was another object besides the release of sixty-two
