About 3 p. m., by General Walker's direction, I moved toward Shallow ford to take position there; camped for the night at Hicks' plantation; sent Capt. John H. Dye with his company to Legate's bridge, on lower road, scouting. The next morning, August 30th, moved from Hicks' at sunrise, in the direction of Shallow ford, and just beyond Greenwood's met a small party of Federals; advanced Major Bull with 15 men to ascertain enemy's strength; Federals fled at his approach.

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
