Capture of the C. S. Ram Tennessee in Mobile bay, August, 1864. [from the Winchester times, November 26, 1890.] by Dr. Daniel B. Conrad, fleet surgeon, C. S. Navy. Kansas city, Mo., November, 1890. We had been lying idly in Mobile bay for many months, on board the iron-clad ram Tennessee, whose fighting deck differed materially from that of the Federal monitors. It resembled the inside of the hip-roof of a house, rather than the cheese-box of Ericsson's Monitor. On the 1st of August, 1864, we saw a decided increase in the Federal fleet, which was then listlessly at anchor outside of Fort Morgan, in the Gulf of Mexico, consisting of eight or ten wooden frigates, all stripped to a girt line and clean for action; their topmasts sent down on deck and devoid of everything that seemed like extra rigging. They appeared like prize fighters ready for the ring. Then we knew that trouble was ahead, and wondered to ourselves why they did not enter the bay any day. On the 3d of

History of the First battle of Manassas and the organization of the Stonewall brigade. How it was so named. by D. B. Conrad, Kansas city, Mo., formerly U. S. And C. S. Navy. When in May, 1861, General Joseph E. Johnston arrived at Harper's Ferry to command the unformed, disorganized mass of men and muskets there assembled, he found five Virginia regiments and two or three from Alabama and Mississippi, all in nominal control, simply by seniority, of a Colonel Jackson of the Virginia Army. Soon order grew out of chaos, and we of the Virginia Army found ourselves one May day on Bolivar Heights, five regiments in all, assembled and called the Virginia Brigade; they were the Second, Thirty-third, Twenty-first, Twenty-seventh, and Fourth. Our senior colonel was a man who never spoke unless spoken to; never seemed to sleep; had his headquarters under a tree; the only tent used was that of his adjutant. He walked about alone, the projecting visor of his blue cap concealing his featu

Capture and burning of the Federal gunboat Underwriter, in the Neuse, off Newbern, N. C., in February, 1864. by Dr. Daniel B. Conrad, formerly of U. S. And C. S. Navy. Kansas city, Mo., June, 1891. In January, 1864, the Confederate naval officers on duty in Richmond, Wilmington and Charleston were aroused by a telegram from the Navy Department to detail three boats' crews of picked men and officers, who were to be fully armed, equipped and rationed for six days; they were to start at once by rail for Weldon, North Carolina, reporting on arrival to Commander J. Taylor Wood, who would give further instructions. So perfectly secret and well-guarded was our destination that not until we had all arrived at Kingston, North Carolina, by various railroads, did we have the slightest idea of where we were going or what was the object of the naval raid. We suspected, however, from the name of its commander, that it would be nervous work, as he had a reputation for boarding, captu
