marching incessantly since November 1st; had snow-storms; slept tentless about the whole time; had salt pork, raw; hard bread, and coffee sugarless, where we could get it, and thankful for it. O, it's jolly campaigning in the winter; turning into a potato-field, in a driving snow-storm, to sleep. . . . . I think that we shall see a fight soon. The Rebels are close to us; and, while I write, the cannonading is incessant. I shall try to do my duty like a man, when the time comes. On November 13th he was again (and the third time) put in command of the regiment, much against his will; the Lieutenant-Colonel, together with the Adjutant, having been taken prisoner while eating dinner across the river at White Sulphur Springs. After leaving camp on August 22d, he was in command about half the time; and he remained in command till he fell. November 15th, Saturday, he was, for the first time, under fire; and says, November 16th:— I don't think I either showed or felt the lea

rdy, and unaccommodating; I have information to gain from men of letters, and they are few, and in general unaccustomed to think much upon the subjects on which I have asked them; so that, though they are kind and even very kind, I hardly get along at all. This disheartens me very much. . . . . For three days I have worked sixteen and eighteen hours a day, without fatigue, in my room and in the public library; and if it depended on nobody but myself,. . . . I could be gone on the 13th. November 13. Yesterday I received, my dearest father, yours of September 30. I cannot tell you what a consolation it was to me to hear that my mother is better. Lisbon itself looks brighter with my brightened thoughts, and even the sad, rainy weather is less tiresome. I hope a packet will sail the 16th. If it does, I shall set off at once. To Mr. Elisha Ticknor. London, December 2, 1818. I wrote to you, dearest father and mother, on the 20th of last month, from Lisbon. The day after, I

command, and Colonel Colquitt was given charge of a brigade including the Sixth and Sixteenth. Late in the year the Twenty-third regiment, unarmed, was sent forward to Yorktown. An unfortunate incident in the history of Cobb's legion is preserved in the official reports of General Magruder. It appears that a scouting party had been fired upon, and he had sent forward an ambuscading force to the vicinity of New Market bridge. While the troops were moving into position on the morning of November 13th, says Magruder, two of my vedettes approached the infantry position of the Georgia legion, at the time commanded by Lieutenant-Colonel Garnett. From some cause, after a short parley, they turned and rode off at full speed. At this a fire was opened upon them without orders from the commander. I regret that in the effort to cause the fire to cease (many of the officers being in front at its commencement), Major Bagley was killed, Captain Morris and one private wounded, and Colonel Garn
now marching in diametrically opposite directions, Sherman south-east and Hood northwest; while, as soon as Sherman started from Kingston, Grant became anxious not to capture the rebel capital, and not to drive Lee out of Petersburg. On the 13th of November, he said to Stanton: I would not, if I could, just now, do anything to force the enemy out of Richmond or Petersburg. It would liberate too much of a force to oppose Sherman with. His whole effort at this juncture was to protect and aid ththis concentration quite as well as the national authorities, and Breckenridge, with about three thousand men, was dispatched from West Virginia, to distract, if possible, some of the troops in Tennessee. He succeeded only too well. On the 13th of November, he attacked a force of fifteen hundred men under General Gillem, stationed near Morristown, in East Tennessee, driving them back as far as Knoxville, with a national loss of about two hundred, in killed, wounded, and prisoners. Thomas at o
d Thomas in war, nothing which is successful, is wrong. Thomas's plans and operations were now all dependent on the course that Hood might take when the designs of Sherman could no longer be concealed; and the forces at Florence were anxiously watched to ascertain whether the national army was to advance into Alabama, or remain for awhile on the defensive in Tennessee. Grant's first order to Thomas after Sherman moved was typical of his character and of what was to follow. On the 13th of November, Thomas telegraphed: Wilson reports to-night that the cavalry arms and equipments applied for some weeks since have not yet reached Louisville. Their non-arrival will delay us in preparing for the field. But it was still possible that Hood might re-cross the Tennessee, in pursuit of Sherman. In that event, not a moment must be lost; and Grant telegraphed at once: If Hood commences falling back, it will not do to wait for the full equipment of your cavalry, to follow. He should, in t
. This command, known as the First Alabama cavalry, he led to Tennessee. He opened the battle of Shiloh, April 6, 1862, and was also engaged in the second day's fight. At Farmington he acted as aid to General Bragg. At Booneville he led a brigade, consisting of his own and a Mississippi regiment and Maj. S. J. Murphy's battalion, and drove the enemy from the field. In the spring of 1863 Colonel Clanton raised three more regiments, the Sixth, Seventh and Ninth Alabama cavalry, and on November 13th of that year was commissioned as brigadier-general in the provisional army of the Confederate States. In 1864 he had a fierce fight with General Rousseau at Ten Islands, on the Coosa river. In this affair he lost his entire staff, Capt. Robert Abercrombie, of Florida, and Lieutenant Judkins, of Montgomery, being killed, and Captain Smith, of Dallas, and Lieutenant Hyer, of Florida, being wounded. Being ordered to Dalton, he reached there ahead of his command, and acted as aid to Gener

ff of Colonel Preston Smith. Witnessed the amputation of a poor fellow's leg this evening. Dr. Bell was the operator. Have resolved to be more attentive to my religious duties, and begun to-night to read through the New Testament. November 11th.—A cold raw day. The enemy were reported landing in force a few miles above here, and we prepared for warm work. A fearful accident happened this morning. Our big gun burst, and killed ten men. General Polk barely escaped with his life. November 13th.—Our prisoners returned from Cairo this evening, and say that the enemy will attack Columbus very soon. General Pillow's division commenced to move to-day, but for some reason, the order was countermanded. It is supposed that the threatened attack caused the retrograde movement. November 16th.—After a cold rain last night, Sir Jack made his appearance this morning. Rode horseback before breakfast. A boat arrived from Cairo, under flag of truce.
