re preachers. Notwithstanding it contained so many men of the cloth, it was a fighting regiment, and some of its officers, notably its last lieutenant-colonel (Dunlop), were as intrepid and gallant as any knight of chivalry. The regiment was at the battle of Belmont, Mo., was retained at Bowling Green for the defense of that post in the winter of 1861-62, and was in Shaver's brigade, which covered the retreat out of Kentucky to Corinth. It fought gallantly at Shiloh, charging upon the Hornets' Nest with the loss of Lieut.-Col. Isaac Dunlop, in Bowen's brigade. It was through this regiment Gen. Sidney Johnston rode from the rear to the front. The regiment went forward with a cheer and passed him in a run; in five minutes 130 men in their ranks were killed and wounded, but they did not falter. Lieutenant Duckworth was killed at the head of his company, and Captain Wallace was wounded. It closed up and disappeared in the thicket in front, followed by the whole line, and the enemy

er troops had come up, and were becoming virtually disorganized, officers, as well as men, leaving the ranks and mixing among the prisoners and scattering the captured camps. While in this position some cavalry rode up from our rear and passed between the Nineteenth Alabama and the Second Texas and took position between the prisoners and Pittsburg landing. Abbot's Battle Fields of ‘61, page 257, says: After a short delay, Bragg availed himself of the opportunity to attack the Hornet's Nest by the flank. The movement was attended with complete success. Generals Wallace and Prentiss showed themselves worthy of the trust reposed in them by Grant and fought stubbornly until the former was shot down with a mortal wound, and the latter, with 3,000 men, was surrounded and captured by an overwhelming force of Confederates. Generals Bragg and Withers came up and directed me to take the prisoners to Corinth, but, upon my suggestion that the battle was not over, General Br

nfantry. It was believed that by a well-planned and rapidly executed night attack this redoubt might be stormed and the guns captured. At any rate, the scheme seemed so feasible that a picked body of men was formed, the volunteers being ignorant of their destination and being only forwarned that they were composing a forlorn hope. As my memory serves me, these volunteers were taken from the following commands, at the rate of six or eight from each: Edgecombe Guards, Charlotte Grays, Hornet's Nest Riflemen, Orange Light Infantry, Lafayette Light Infantry, Burke Rifles, Independent Light Infantry,. Enfield Rifles, Southern Stars, Bertie Light Infantry, Chowan Light Infantry, Stuart's and Montague's Virginia Light Infantry, twelve dismounted men of Douthat's Virginia Cavalry. After this lapse of time my recollection is indistinct, and I can recall by name of these volunteers only J. B. Smith, R. M. Orrell, James T. Rose, Theodore Wardell and J. W.
