The fall of Forts Henry and Donelson on the ad and 14th of February, 1862, was a lamentable disaster which changed the situation in Kentucky. Grant's possession of the Tennessee river cut off Colum Grayson was mortally, and Maj. J. A. McNeely, Captains Crump and Wilds, and Lieutenants Duncan, Hopkins and Busby, seriously wounded. After the fall of Fort Donelson, Tenn., General Polk evacuated Columbus, and the next stand for the defense of the Mississippi river was made at the bends of Island No.10 and New Madrid, Mo. At

On March 5th, Col. D. H. Reynolds, of the First Arkansas rifles, Churchill's old regiment, and at the time in command of the brigade, had been promoted to brigadier-general.

It is thought Bragg should have held Chattanooga, since to leave it was to lose all east Tennessee south of Knoxville. But Bragg hesitated to risk his communications with Georgia, and he therefore moved out of that city September 8th, with an effective force of 40,000. Rosecrans' force in the field was about 65,000. Bragg took position between the branches of Chickamauga creek, extending his line from Ringgold southwar

Advancing to Iuka, Price was attacked on September 19, 1862, by two columns of the enemy. Hebert's brigade met the enemy south of Iuka, and bore the brunt of the deadly conflict there. Hebert said in his report: I must put in the position of brave and true men the small numbers of the Fourteenth and Seventeenth regiments of Arkansas infantry. Nobly, heroically have they proved themselves true patriots and brave soldiers. Th

not reach the parapet, but fell just outside. The army could not stand the unequal fight. It drew off to move against some other point of attack. Schofield moved out as soon as it was dark, and by midnight had his army mainly at Nashville. General Hood took possession of the Federal works, but it was after his own army had suffered terribly and the enemy had escaped. Hood's loss was estimated at 5,000 or 6,000. He had lost some of his best generals. Cleburne of Arkansas, Gist of South Carolina, Adams of Tennessee, Strahl of Tennessee, and Granbury of Texas, were killed; John C. Brown, Quarles, Cockrell, Manigault, Scott and Carter were wounded, and G. W. Gordon captured. The general officers riding behind .their men or in line with them were shining marks for the deadly rifles aimed from a rest behind breastworks. Cleburne was killed in a charge at double-quick. His horse was first killed under him, and he pressed forward with his men on foot, when he was killed within a

promptly occupied by McPherson, who, if he had been bold, said Cleburne, might have wrought a complete Confederate defeat. Going into line of battle at Resaca, Cleburne intrenched, and during the 14th of May repulsed the repeated assaults of the enemy. On the night of the 15th Johnston evacuated Resaca and crossed the Oostenaula, and next morning Cleburne met a flanking force of the enemy near Calhoun, and Polk and Govan were briskly engaged. The division was next in line of battle at Adairsville and Cassville, but not engaged. It crossed the Etowah river May 20th, and marched to Powder Springs. It was marching to the front during the night battle at New Hope church, but was unable to get through the crowded roads. On the afternoon of May 26th the division went into position and intrenched on the extreme right (north) of the army, forming a line retiring eastward from the main line on Pumpkin Vine creek. On the afternoon of the 27th, Govan reported the enemy pushing against

Lieutenant-General Hill, placing Breckinridge at Lafayette, sent Cleburne to hold the three gaps in Pigeon mountain, west of Lafayette—Catlett's, Dug and Blue Bird. Bragg was attempting to beat Rosecrans' forces in detail, and Thomas' corps had a narrow escape on the 11th when it emerged from the mountains into McLemore's cove, west of Cleburne's positioed fire from the north; but there were unfortunate delays and misunderstandings, so that when Cleburne was put in action, the Federals made a safe retreat to the mountain pass on their rear. On the 13th Polk's brigade was brought down from Pigeon mountain in expectation of a fight near Lafayette, and next day Deshler, at Catlett's gap, was reinforced by the whole of Breckinridge's division. Rosecrans, learning now of the reinforcement of Bragg, began a hurried concentration northward towar

Halting at these points to bring up his impedimenta, General Johnston at the close of March joined Beauregard at Corinth, Miss., the crossing of the Mobile & Ohio and Memphis & Charleston railroads. On March 5th, General Johnston dispatched the secretary of war from Huntsville, Ala.: The advance will reach Decatur in three days. Cleburne's brigade and two regiments and battalion of cavalry left at Shelbyville, under General Hardee, to forward pork, and then rejoin main body. Cleburne had as yet seen but little of the pride of glorious war.
