o the sorely beset Thomas: Arrived in sight, Granger discovered at once the peril and the point of danger — the gap — and quick as thought he directed his advance brigade upon the enemy. General Steedman, taking a regimental color, led the column. Swift was the charge and terrible the conflict, but the enemy was broken. A thousand of our brave men killed and wounded paid for its possession. Longstreet was determined to send Preston with his division of three brigades under Gracie, Trigg, and Kelly, aided by Robertson's brigade of Hood's division, to carry the heights — the main point of defense. His troops were of the best material and had been in reserve all day; but brave, fresh, and strong as they were, it was with them alternate advance and retreat, until success was assured by a renewal of the fight on the right. At 3:30 P. M. General Polk sent an order to me to assume command of the attacking forces on the right and renew the assault. Owing to a delay in the adjust<

the responsibility of placing in their hands the old muskets turned in to General Dimmock by Colonel Trigg, which I found at Abingdon. I left Abingdon with a force composed of the 54th Virginia, sixn the field. We had only four wounded, including Captain Elliott. None killed. I directed Colonel Trigg to move on the right of the Fifth Kentucky, and take the enemy in flank, and so to press on ace by small arms, arid, though daylight was now nearly gone, I ordered the battalions forward — Trigg leading to the right, May next, Moore's and Bradley's men next, so as to move on the place throu and by the road we had traveled. In half an hour a sharp, hot fire on the right, announced Colonel Trigg in contact with the enemy. Fire, from a regiment, is seldom more steady than this I refer tarty good will and promptly. Major Bradley lost one of his men, Weeden, of Halladay's company. Trigg had some six men wounded, one of whom, private Carter, of Company I, was mortally wounded. So t

ry Third infantry Fourth infantry Stovall's brigade at Chickamauga First cavalry Sixth infantry Seventh infantry Trigg's brigade at Chickamauga Finley's brigade. The ten companies of the First Florida regiment of infantry were commanded as scouts under Captain Footman until April, 1863, when being dismounted they joined the other seven companies in Gen. Robert C. Trigg's brigade, formerly commanded by Gen. William Preston. The mounted battalion participated in the battle of Richmo8th, of the same year. In the Chickamauga campaign the regiment rendered efficient service under Col. Troup Maxwell in Trigg's brigade and subsequently was identified with the record of the Florida brigade until the close of the war. The Sixthinction, they engaged in the siege of Chattanooga and then became identified with the record of Finley's brigade. Col. R. C.

nant colonel. In 1862 this regiment served in East Tennessee in the brigade of Gen. W. G. M. Davis. The department was at that time commanded by Gen. E. Kirby Smith. At the time of the battle of Murfreesboro this brigade was still in Smith's department, and on June 2d Lieutenant-Colonel Bullock was commissioned colonel. When all available Confederate commands were being concentrated by Bragg to meet the advancing army of Rosecrans, the Seventh Florida was one of the regiments assigned to Trigg's brigade of the division of Gen. William Preston. The losses in this division at Chickamauga bear strong testimony to the desperate nature of the fighting there. At the battle of Missionary Ridge the Seventh Florida fought in the brigade of General Finley and the division of General Bate. In this brigade and division it continued to serve throughout the Atlanta campaign under Colonel Bullock, who had already distinguished himself as a cool and gallant commander.

[correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.] Camp Below Piketon, on the Sandy river, in Pike county, Ky., 54th Reg't Va. Vols., Dec. 9, 1861. The 54th Virginia regiment of volunteers, commanded by Col. Robt. C. Trigg, and the first Virginia regiment that responded to the call of Kentucky for help, arrived opposite the little village of Piketon on the 6th inst. --Our route was from Wytheville, Va. We left Christiansburg, Montgomery county, Va., on the 8th day of November, 1861, and was on the march for one whole month lacking but two days, passing over the most mountainous country in the world, crossing at short intervals the many water courses that flow down and drain this whole country. The march of this regiment has been one of the severest and most arduous of the entire service. We have had to wade creeks, branches and rivers; camping upon the snow-clad ground, and often
