Greenville. Tennessee, March 10. C
Longstreet's corps, after the bat- y
tle at Knoxville, Tennessee. came tl
up by Newmarket and Morristown TF
to Greenville where we had camped (
for some time doing nothing, but u
picket duty and to be near Bull's ti
gap, this is the gap through which ai
the Knoxville railroad passes from -o
Lynchburg by Bristol, Greenville r<
and on to Knoxville. On the ioth ii
at dress parade that evening or- 1
ders were read out for.:everv sol- .at
dier to -clean up himslf and his gun o
and to put on their best looks for b:
the 12th for we were to be inspect- a.
ed and reviewed hv an officer sent 11
out by the war department from i t(;
The war departmelit wanted to
see what sort of fix we were in to
commence the campaign. The i ith t
evervbody spent in getting r.eady -
for the review. On the morni;aof
the 12th about 16*a. i., we were
marched out into a large field and t1
formed into brigades and brigaie
ito divisions. Our division that \
was McLaw's were all in one field. G
General McLaws had been taken
from his division and assigned to G
duty ip this state. We had not seen t
himi for some time and did not know t
!he was to be there that day and
when the old general came riding i
up with General Longstreet his old
division ehefred him till General si
Longstreet had to ask the boys to
hush. The old general bade us 1
good bye With tears in his eves and a
said he had no fears for us. for we N
had neved flinched vet. It was aI
touching scene. I don't think there~
was a dry eve in the division.
General McLaws spent the night Th
a.fter the review in Greenville and
nearly the whole division turned
out to serenade him. We had the
bands from the four brigades. We fr
had two Georgia, one Mississippi J~
and one South Carolina brigade; st~
each vieing with one another to seeC
which could do the most.h
On the morning of the review js
just as we reached the field all of t
the spectators wvere crowding to see c
who could get the be.st position. C
There wei;e two men from Co. C of
the 3rd S. C. regiment, Henry Rea
in and Tom Stiliwell, who had
been on guard duty the day and I
night before. they were excusedl hC
from duty that day. They had gone
out with the spectators along with th
two vouing ladies by the name of st
Williams. who were Secessionists, to
and came up from Morristown andh
taken refuge at Greenville. This
ortion of Tennessee was a hotbedp
of bushwhackers and abolitionists s
'and had very little love for the Con- IP'
federate soldiers. These two sol -t
diers with. these -young ladies were
on foot and had gotten a good place
in the front and the carriages and at
hosebackers wvere kept in the rear,~ at

bridles and set them back, Reagin C
ran around and snatched the whip CC
out of the coachmani's hand andc

and go somewhere else. It turned
