Colquitt, of the City Light Guards, Columbus, Georgia, was in command during the engagement, and his remarkable coolness and self-possession did honor to himself and to his State. His clear voice could be heard amid the cannon's dealing boom--"Keep cool, my bear men, don't get excited; aim your pieces well" I can never forget the appearance of his face, radiant with smiles as he gave his commands. So gallantly did he conduct himself. that General Gwyun has made him chief in command at Sewell's Point. Long live his name in the memory of his countrymen.
