General Grant, foiled in his previous attempts to flank Vicksburg, landed an army on the Louisiana point opposite, and prepared to gain a lodgment south of the city. Beforehand he caused expeditions to attempt the bayou passages on the north, and the most formidable of these was met by the Second Texas and Waul's legion, with two Mississippi regiments, at Greenwood on the Yazoo. With a cotton-bale battery, these troops defeated two ironclads, mounting 10 and 11 inch guns, supported by a large infantry force. General Loring, reporting the affair, gave earnest praise to Col. T. N. Waul and his men for service in the fortifications, and to Col. Ashbel Smith and his regiment for gallantry and skill in preventing the enemy from turning the right flank. After Grant had landed below Vicksburg and pushed McPherson's corps toward Jackson, it was met at R

The men of the Ninth Texas, having discharged their guns, and not being provided with sabers or pistols, began to waver, when the charge of General Jackson's escort and the opportune arrival of the Sixth Texas under its brave Lieut.-Col. P. F. Ross, restored confidence and forced the enemy from the field. Subsequently Ross' brigade joined in the pursuit under General Wheeler, and at Newnan, when the battle was momentarily going against Wheeler, Ross' Texans, dismounted, made a gallant charge which drove the enemy back. At the same time the Federals by a dash got between Ross and his horses. Without halting to consider, the command to about face and move back was promptly given, and as promptly obeyed. The struggle was a desperate one, and only after an hour's hard fighting were our efforts crowned with success, the enemy again repulsed, and our horses recaptured and saved.
