n the office of Adjutant-General Stringfellow, when the latter was connected with the department of Georgia, Florida and South Carolina, and in the office of General Pemberton's adjutant-general, at Hillsboro. After the surrender of the army at Greensboro, he returned to his father's home in Darlington district, and a few months len. N. G. Evans, and ordered to duty at Jackson, Miss., where it became a part of the army of Gen. Joseph E. Johnston, being marshaled to relieve the army of General Pemberton, then besieged in Vicksburg. Before reaching there Vicksburg had fallen and the army retreated to Jackson, where the scattered and depleted army of Johnstonre-elected, and Major Smith was authorized by the secretary of war to raise a regiment, or smaller body, as practicable, and take command. He was offered by General Pemberton and accepted the command of a battalion, thereafter known as Smith's sharpshooters, which he had charge of with the rank of major until disbanded in December

. Nathan G. Evans at the battle of Secessionville, a very brilliant affair, which resulted in the complete triumph of the Confederates. Before that battle William Porcher Miles, of Charleston, had urged the Confederate government to remove General Pemberton, and suggested that Smith be put in his place. But General Smith's career of usefulness in the Confederate army was soon to close. Attacked by fever, he died on October 4, 1862, in the city of Charleston, in the defense of which he had rendered efficient and gallant service. The dispatches that passed between General Lawton at Savannah and General Pemberton at Charleston, in which each exhibits great desire to have the services of General Smith, indicate the estimate of his worth by his commanding officers, while the letter referred to, urging his appointment to department command, shows what the people of Charleston thought of him. His career in the Confederate army, though brief, reflects credit on his native State. Bri

lies at Britton's lane, Tenn., and after a stubborn conflict of three hours captured the train and 300 prisoners and two pieces of artillery. The Second Arkansas lost 70 men killed and wounded in this engagement. In the campaigns of Price and Pemberton in Mississippi, it was in continuous active service. Under General Chalmers, in 1863, it participated in the battles of Iuka, Coldwater, Colliersville and Salem. Under Gen. N. B. Forest, 1864, it participated in the masterly movements of thatlonel of the consolidated regiment, which was thereafter known as the Twenty-first, and assigned to duty at Vicksburg. It took part in the battle of Black River Bridge, May 17, 1863, and endured the siege of Vicksburg until the capitulation of Pemberton, July 4, 1863. Colonel Cravens was captured at the Big Black and, with the other officers, was sent a prisoner to Johnson's island. Colonel Cravens became circuit judge and representative in Congress; Colonel Pitman, circuit judge and State se

In April, 1863, there was one brigade of the troops in Mississippi, under Gen. J. C. Pemberton, that was mainly composed of Arkansans—that of Brig.-Gen. M. E. Green, including the First cavalry battalion (sharpshooters dismounted), Capt. W. S. Catterson; Twelfth infantry battalion (sharpshooters), Capt. Griff Bayne; Fifteenth regime division, did gallant service at Baker's creek, also served at the Big Black bridge, and fought in the trenches during the siege of Vicksburg. After the death of General Green, Colonel Dockery commanded the brigade, which was surrendered with Pemberton's army, July 4, 1863. The fate of Green's brigade was soon shared by Beall's brigade at Port Hudson, which was surrendered on July 8th. The loss of the brigade during the siege, up to June 1st, was 68 killed and 194 wounded. On June 26th, 3
ict of arms that the New World had ever seen. The soldiers of the South stormed and captured the camp of the victors of Donelson, drove them in complete rout to the protection of their gunboats, and, had not the advance been stayed, would probably have annihilated the army of Grant before Buell could get to its assistance. When the large army of Grant and his powerful fleet were besieging Vicksburg, General Holmes was ordered by Kirby Smith to create a diversion, if possible, in favor of Pemberton, by attacking the strong post of Helena, Ark. This was done, but without success. The Sixth Arkansas was in Fagan's brigade, and under its gallant colonel drove the enemy out of two lines of works, but was at last repulsed in the attack upon Fort Hindman. During the joint campaign of Banks and Steele, in April, 1864, Hawthorn, who on the 28th of February, 1864, had been commissioned brigadier-general, led a brigade in the division of General Churchill, and made a gallant fight at Jenkins
