Thomas Wentworth Higginson, Army Life in a Black Regiment, Chapter 13: Conclusion. (search)
ed troops from this chagrin; but we found here, as more than once before, the disadvantage of having no governor to stand by us. It's a far cry to Loch Awe, said the Highland proverb. We knew to our cost that it was a far cry to Washington in those days, unless an officer left his duty and stayed there all the time. In June, 1864, the regiment was ordered to Folly Island, and remained there and on Cole's Island till the siege of Charleston was done. It took part in the battle of Honey Hill, and in the capture of a fort on James Island, of which Corporal Robert Vendross wrote triumphantly in a letter, When we took the pieces we found that we recapt our own pieces back that we lost on Willtown Revear (River) and thank the Lord did not lose but seven men out of our regiment. In February, 1865, the regiment was ordered to Charleston to do provost and guard duty, in March to Savannah, in June to Hamburg and Aiken, in September to Charleston and its neighborhood, and was finall

r Big Black River, near Canton, 30 miles of the road and 2 locomotives, besides large amounts of stores. The expedition from Baton Rouge was without favorable results. The expedition from the Department of the South, under the immediate command of Brig. Gen. John P. Hatch, consisting of about 5,000 men of all arms, including a brigade from the Navy, proceeded up Broad River and embarked at Boyd's Neck on the 29th of November, from where it moved to strike the railroad at Grahamville. At Honey Hill, about three miles from Grahamville, the enemy was found and attacked in a strongly fortified position, which resulted, after severe fighting, in our repulse, with a loss of 746 in killed, wounded, and missing. During the night General Hatch withdrew. On the 6th of December General Foster obtained a position covering the Charleston and Savannah Railroad, between the Coosawhatchee and Tulifinny Rivers. Hood, instead of following Sherman, continued his move northward, which seemed to m

, and short trenches for infantry had been prepared. These earth-works were about one hundred yards from the little stream, and were located upon ground called Honey Hill, ten or twelve feet above the water-level. On the right of the battery there was a dense forest; on the left an open pine wood. The ground between the earth-wd their legal jurisdiction. I therefore asked and obtained permission to bring these exhausted troops back to their own State. The Federal forces engaged at Honey Hill consisted of about 5500 men and 10 guns, under General John P. Hatch, sent by General John G. Foster, commanding the Department of the South, to secure a foothoerman purposed crossing the Savannah River, and thus reaching the sea-coast of South Carolina, he abandoned such intention after the defeat of Hatch's forces at Honey Hill. Sherman's army continued to move down the Savannah River on the Georgia side. About fifteen thousand Confederate troops from. the Carolinas had reached Sa

d record for discipline and efficiency. The 77th New York was also a fighting regiment, and sustained a loss in officers above that of the average. The loss of officers in its brigade (7th Me., 43d N. Y., 49th N. Y., 77th N. Y., and 61st Pa.) was without a parallel in the war, the five regiments losing 72 officers killed in action. The 144th sustained its loss in killed in the battles along the South Carolina coast,--at John's Island, James Island, Siege of Wagner, Deveaux Neck, and Honey Hill, half of its loss occurring in the latter battle. The 141st New York encountered its hardest fighting and severest losses at Resaca and Peach Tree Creek. The following regiments failed to complete their organizations, and their numbers are accordingly vacant: the 17th Cavalry; 11th and 12th Heavy Artillery; 166th, 167th, 171st, 172d, 180th, 181st, and 183d Infantry. Missing numbers in the line were also caused by transfers of regiments to a different arm of service; the 7th Cavalry b

ould not be relied on to attack the enemy in their entrenchments. The number of the enemy on Gregory's neck I estimate at between four and five thousand. [Note.--It was the same body of troops, General Hatch commanding, that was defeated at Honey Hill, on the 30th November. It was then said to consist of 5,000 men of all arms. General Grant, in an official report, states the Federal loss at Honey Hill to have been 746 in killed, wounded and missing. Six days later, General Hatch landed wiHoney Hill to have been 746 in killed, wounded and missing. Six days later, General Hatch landed with his command on Gregory's neck, and it is reasonable to estimate the number between four and five thousand.] Under instructions from the Lieutenant-General commanding, directing me if I could not dislodge the enemy from his position, to strengthen my own so as to hold the railroad, and send him all the troops I could spare, I sent him the part of General Young's brigade that had arrived, and a few other troops, to operate in the immediate vicinity of Savannah, and directed my attention to h
