00fing of Robert
By James Mitchell.
Liongteet's corpF had gone in
wilier qullarters for a while. We di
not know how long we would get I
enjoy our winter quarters, as we ha
been kept oil the move ever since w
left Viginiia in , September. - Th
wetier at ti time was the coldeH
we i(i ret during the war and on
cloties and shoes were badly worn. j
train load of clothing for our corp
had been stopped near Louden an<
hand been there while we were ligltin;,
fi-ound Knoxville, and when we la<
to leave Knoxville and go in anotie
(lirection if our clothing ivas not de
stroyed, it must have fallen into th
hands of the enemy.
We were glad when orders came -t<
build winter quartero, a thing we la(
been wanting to hear although we liat
thei long, and sure enough, we gol
to stay in about one night then had tc
leave them, but fighting was over
We didn't have any more of that, but
kept Oil the move.
It seemad after the fighting was all
over we were not very successful. Dis.
sentions sprung up among the gener
als and desertions among the privates,
Gen. Bragg was trying to lay his de
feat at Chaf'tanooga on some of hiE
generals and they in turn petitioned
the war department to have him re
moved. And in our corps, Gen. Long.
street removed Gen. McLaws and sent
him to S. C. department, and Gen.
Law was sent to Richmond. Natural.
ly this had a bad effect on the ranli
and file and the soldiers, whose homei
had fallen into the hands of the ene.
my were deserting and going home t<
see after their families. Gen. Long
street was making- strenuous efforts t(
put a stop to this anil restore confi
dence in the army.
While we were below Russellville
T cannot recall just where, one yount
soldier by the name of W. H. Roberts
co. A, 21st Miss. regiment, Hum
phry's brigade, who had left home a
the beginning of the war, left a fa
thier, mother and two little sisters, tei
and twelve years old. Roberts re
ceived word from home that his fa
ther and mother were both dead an<
hint the enemy had gone by his hom
and destroyed everything they ha<
and burned their house. His littl
sisters were seen in the enemy'
camp picking up corn that the horse
had wasted, this being all they coul
get to eat. This was more than Rob
erts cQuld stand. He went to his Cap
tain and related his story and tol
him he wanted a furlough to go hom
and get his little sisters in a place o:
refuge and that he would come back
His captain wrote him out a fur
lough and approved it and along wit]
it sent his story why lie .wanted th,
furlough. I Every officer up to Get
Longstreet approved his furlougl'
but Gen. Longstreet disapprovedi
and sent it baek. Roberts wvas so sur
that his furlough would comec baec
all right that he had his baggag
packed' ready to go, but when it cam
back disapproved it almost craze
him. He wvent to his captain anid toi,
him lie could not stand it and he wa
going. His captain remonstrated wit
him and told him they would cor
martial him and shoot him if they e~
cer caught him, but nothing could ste
him. His story is:
He left camp that night and di
niot go far -into the mountains of Tet
nessee before he fell in with a ban
of bushwhackers, who agreed to pil
him safely through if he would g
with them. He was for anything tht
would carry lhim home, so he agree
to their proposition and wvent wit
them, but by some mishap the ban
and he avere all captured. He wi
b)rought back and tried for desertiol
found guilty anid sentenced to be sh<
on a certain day. A pardon wvas go
ten up and sent up. All the offieel
signed his pardon except Gener:
Longstreet, lie refused to sign it.
.The chaplain of the division got r
arespite to put off the execution for
Sshort while, but Longstreet refusedi
do anything. Although Roberts' re
ord as a soldier, was as good as at
in the army General Longstreet hr
