Captain N. S. Wood, of
the WhitoviHe neighborhood,
being the ranking survi

er man followed the fortunes
of the Confederacy than Cap

the "Schuyler Dragoons"
and was mustered into ser-,
vice at New Castle, March
12,1802. The company " was
ordered to Burns ville, Miss.,
reporting to Forrest, which
completed his regiment. Aft
er the reorganization of the
army, June, 18G2, he was
elected first lieutenant of his
company. In thf spring of
1863, upon the death of Cap
tain Rufus Brooks, Lieuten
ant Wood was promoted to
the captaincy of his company.
Captain Wood commanded
his company in every engage
ment previous to the time
that it was associated, tem
porarily, with Captain Blan
ton's company and took part
in the battles of Shiloh, Cor
inth, Iuka,IIari isburg, Frank
lin, in fruit of Nashville, and
many other engagements.
He also commanded his regi
ment in nearly every engage
ment on Hood's raid. He
was never wounded. He sur

May 15, 18G5.
Below is a copy ot the let
ter recently received by him
from Col. Kelly. Captain
Wood requests all survvors
of Forrest's regiment to be
present at the reunion, and
he also asks that the papers
of West Tennessee reproduce
the following letter:
Nashville, Tenn. ,Meh. 22, 1901.
Cait. N. E. Wood.
My Dear Comrade So far as I
am able to learn, you are the rank
ing surviving officer of "Forrest's
Old Regiment." I write therefore
to request that you commaud the
"Old Regiment" at the Memphis
reunion. My wish is to have the
regiment appear in the parade on
'Forrest Day" immediately follow
ing the escort.
You will make every possible ef
fort to communicate with the mem
bers of the "Old Regiment" as it
was at the surrender, and induce all
to be present. We hope to appear
in the parade mounted.

which caused a valuable . horse much suffering, but
from which permanent injury was avoided by the
timely use of Mexican Mustang Liniment.
La Grange, Tenn., Jan. 6, 1901.
-Lyon Manufacturing Co.,
Brooklyn, N. V.
Dear Sirs: I will say" that your Mexican Mnstang
Liniment has done a wonderful cure in this part of the
country. I own the stallion known as the "State of Ten
nessee," who has a large patronage both far and near his
service this Spring to date is 102 mares. I was offered
$400x0 when he was two years old. I refused same. -Then
some one took him from the stable and commenced with a
wire and wrapped the right leg from the foot tip to his hip,
and after standing all night the leg had swollen so large as to
hide the wire, and in five days the leg bursted and the flesh
turned Inside out. I spent large sums of money to have him
cured but up to five months ago it was quite a failure, and
then a friend induced me to try a bottle of, your liniment. I
used one of the 25ent bottles because I did not have much
faith in it, but it helped him so much that I bought a second,
third and fourth bottle, which completely cured him. The
reason it took so long to cure is that it had a kind of itching
sensation when it was healing a little, when he would bite it
with his teeth. I put the lipjp.cnt on the wound with a feath
er and rubbed the swollen ?s 'wi1'1 my hand.
Mexican Mustang Linime:.t seemed (0 take out all the
itching as well as to cause it to heal rapidly, and he showed
no disposition to interfere with it.' The one dollar purchase
has been worth hundreds of dollars to me. I keep your
Liniment in my breeding stable all the time, andjo those
who have horses I will say it is the best liniment that money
can buy. I will answer all inquiring letters. .
Very truly yours,
J.' CC WALTON.
