Knoxville Nol 2
By James .Mitchell.
On the night ,of the 18th of No
vember, 1863, after the fight that
m'orning we pushed our lines a little
closer to the yankee line of breast
works. We dug pits at night and had
them well filled with sharpshooters
the next morning. - The next night
we would do the same thing over. W6
would, under cover of darkness, go up
just as close as we could and dig
more pits and fill them with sharp
shooters, who would stay in the pits
all day and amoy the yankee cannon
eers. They kept them from working
their guns, and they. would pop any
yank who would show his head over
the works. We noticed that some of
them wore white beaver hats, we sup
posed them to be loyal citizens . of
Tennessee, whom Gen. Burnsides
spoke of as helping in the fight around
On the 22nd, %e were as close as
we could get and everything ready
for that night, but for some cause we
did not go, and everything rested just
as it was until the morning of the
29th, when the batteries along our
line opened on Fort Sanders. Ker
shaw's brigade did not go into the
charge on Fort Sanders. We.were on
the right towards the river on a lit
tle stream called second creek, with
orders to be ready. . As soon as we
saw the flag at the fort come down,
we were to charge. Wofford 's, Bryan's
and Humphrey's brigades of our di
vision charged the fort and had vir
tually captured it, and had silenced
every battery in the fort. The men
in the fort had stopped firing and
were only throwing a few hand gern
ades over into the moat around the
fort. Some of our men were al
ready mounting the works. One col
or bearer had succeeded in planting
his colors on the works and one of -the
Georgians of Wofford's brigade said
the last lie saw of their color bearer,
he folded his colors and darted into a
port hole, calling to the boys to come
on. We were not repulsed, but for
some unexplainable cause, just at the
very moment when the fort was al
most taken, our troops were order
ed to retire. Our men were mortified
to think that they were ordered back
after the fort was as good as ours. It
was reported that Maj. Goggans, of
McLaw's staff, who had been at tile
fort, rode back to Gen. Longstreet and
reported that the fort was su'rrouiidcd
with sueh a network of wvires that it
would be impossible for the men to
get in without axes. There was not
An axe on hand, and Gen. Longstreet
oi dered the line recalled. So ended
one of the most gallant charges of the
war. . Gen. Burnside allowed us to re
move our dead and wounded around
the fort under a flag of truce. And a
rumor reached us that evening that
(Gen. Bragg had been beaten at Chat
tanooga. WNe stayed around Knox
ville for a day or two, when wve left
and wvent in the direction of the Cum
berland gap. On the 6th~, we reaehed
a- place called Rutledge, wvhere we
halted for two days. On the *8th of
December we took up the line of
march and on the 9th, we reach~ed
Rogerville and rested there for a few
days. We moved from there to B3ean
Station, where we had some fighting.
We' wvere out of rations and wanted
some. That night Col. Nance sent the
same boys on'a scout that lie sent out
at Campbell Station and found only a
few straggling yankees, and they ran
up on a tvare house or depot'fuill of
meat and 'flour. They came bock and
reportedl to Col. Nance and lie had
the regimnent formed in line of bat
tle and marched down and took poe
session of the supplies, ,had rations is
sued and then told the boys to help
themselves. Such a grabbing of hams
and sacks of flour. After we were all
loaded, we were marched back to our
old camp, wvhere wve made up fires and
in a fewv minutes such a boking of
hoecakes and frying of ham. WVe soon
had the wvoods smelling of fried ham.
The other hungry fellows wvho had not
been wvith us, smelled ham frying and
camne over and wanted to know if wve
had drawn rations. We. told them
yes, Col. Nance had found! us some
rations. They went back to, their
camp and raised cain because t heir
oficeers did not get them 'rations. We
did not tell them any better, but said,
''if yon had been Wvith us, you would
have brin given rations too."
A few days after this we made an
other pass to get a little fight. but the
enemy retreated before wve got to
Winter set in rough, and we cross
ed over tife river to the easterni side
near the railroad at Morristowvn,
where we took up winter quarters on
the 20th of December, 1863.

our Millinery department. We are fulfilling our
promise to set before the people the greatest array of
Millinery values ever set before the Newberry public.

Oxfords and Slippers.
Everybody knows that Drew Selby Oxfords stands
above all other makes like a "six footer." Drew
Selby use nothing but first class material and labor,
making it impossible for a poor Shoe or Oxford to come
from their factory. We are authorized to make good
all complaints, even if it requires a new pair. Hence
you are perfectly safe in buying Drew Selby Oxfords
from us. Their price begins at $1.50 and ends at $8.50.
Lots of folks prefer A cheaper Oxford, and don't
expect Drew Selby, although they do expect good
values for the price they pay. We have a cheaper line,
and we are not ashamed to call them "Mimnaugh's
Oxfords," because they are made by a most reliable
factory and we guarantee them just like we do the
better ones. Their prices start at98c. and stop at $1.50.
