Accordingly he resigned his commission as captain in the army of the United States and, accepting from his adopted State the commission of lieutenant-colonel, was placed in command of Fort Morgan. Later he was made a brigadier-general in the army of the Confederate States (February 27, 1862) and sent into east Tennessee. When the Union army was moving upon Chattanooga in 1862, General Leadbetter was engaged in quite a spirited affair at Bridgeport, in which, although the Confederates were worsted, considerable delay was caused to the movements of the enemy.

Shaw, but received no reply. As dark as the night was, the boats made their way up the channel towards Elizabeth City where a final stand was to be made. The command of Commodore Lynch was upon Albemarle and Pamlico founds, and he therefore
