3rd S. 0. at Knoxville.
I always dislike to correct what any
one writes, but Mr. Mitchell's sketch
of the fight at Knoxville is unjust to
the 3rd regiment. Tihe Campbell Sta
tion fight was on the 16th (lay of No
vemiber, 1863. That night the Feder
als loft the station and retreated to
ward1Ns Knloxville. 'rThe morning of the
17th,- 01u1 troops followed the Fede
.als. It was a runtninlg fight to a short
distance ft-em Knoxville. The Feder..
als 1h0( formed the line along a row of
cedar ttrees about one-half mile in
front of Fort Loudon. Nine compa
unies of the third r'egimfenlt wet-e sent
to the left of our line to try ando get
ont the -flank of the Federal position.
Eight companies were ill line. Compa
niy B, wvas over next to the tiver,
Company E was senit out as skirmnisht
el-s to prlotect the i-eatr of the regi
- mnt. Col. Nancee got on the flanik
of the Fedleratls and1( beganl thie atttack.
, Tlhe Fedlerals wereO comp)letely smi

which tle regimlieit. did before Gen. tin
Kersiaw allowed any other troops to ilii

There is another error I want, to
correct, the third regiment, was corn- ed
posed of three comipanies from New- th,
berry, four from Laurens, one from CA
Spartanburg, onc from Union, one co
from Lexii-ton. Then Col. Nance ist
