BATTLE OF FRANKLIN.
The Gallant Frl TkH by the 176th Ohio.
Eoitor Vateokai. Txibcxb: Tho sUte
meate made br comrades he to the part taken
by tbeir respective rogimetits ia the battle of
Franklin are of much interest.
I was a member of the 175th Ohio during the
campaign from Columbia to Nashville, and am
personally cognisant of tbe part taken by that
regiment in tbe campaign, and my impression
is that a carefnl perusal of what I have to say
will convince any comrade that the 175th Ohio
was not only in tbe thickest of the light at
Franklin, but that it played a most important
part at Thompson's Station tbe day before tbe
Tbe 175th was organised at Camp Dennison
in tbe Fall of 1964, leaving the State Oct. 11,
and going directly to Colombia, Tena., whore
at the inception of tbe campaign It was doing
garrison duty, its men being distributed along
tbe railroad between Nashville and Pulaski.
As Schofield fell back in front of Hood, the
men of tbe regiment were concentrated at Co
tatnbia. While tbe organisation was new, its
material was old it having been recruited
from men a huge majority of whom had serv
ed full terms in old regiments. Its officers
were all experienced soldiers, and no regiment
in tbe service was better equipped for efficient
On tbe morning of the 23th of November,
3864. tbe 175th Ohio, then on the north side of
Bock Biver, in charge of prisoners and the
Columbia post trains, together with its own
transportation, was ordered by Gen. J. D. Cox
to pull out in tbe direction of Nashville and
take tbe prisoners and trains to a place of safety.
About dark of tbe same day tbe trains were
parked on tbe west side of tbe pike, at Thomp
son's Station, tbe troops in bivouac near them.
Before the men were through with supper two
avalry couriers earae to ns from the east of the
pike, and stated tbey were from Hatch's com
mand, with instructions to warn all detached
parties to move on toward Nashville or fall
back on Columbia, as oar cavalry would possi
bly be forced to retire on Schofield, thus leav
ing the pike uncovered. These couriers were
taken by Ma. Ed. Mullenix and myself to
Iteot.-Col. Dan. McCoy, in command of tho
regiment. Tbe Colonel did not seem mncli
disturbed by the report, and tbe couriers, after
being refreshed, went on their way toward Co
lumbia. Within an hour another courier struck
as with similar tidings. He, too, was taken to
tbe Colonel, wb still remained unmoved.
Having a valuable train under my charge I
naturally felt anxious to place it beyoud dan
ger, and therefore suggested to 3IcCoy, if his
orders were discretionary, we should pull out
toward Franklin. Tbe Major seconded the
soggestion, but tbe Colonel, without discussion,
decided that the emergency did not demand a

This was soon accomplished, and only a very
sbert time elapsed before a railroad train bear
ing the 44th Mo., on roote to join Schofield,
drew ap at tbe station, and its officers inquired,
' What army corps is this? "
Kext morning, the 29th, taking a single sol
dier with ns, the Major and myself climbed
te kill -east of tbe pike, immediately in the
rear of a white frame residence, which I under
stood to be occupied by Dr. Thompson. From
the summit of this bill the sight that mot our
eyes was not such as to inspire us with a cer
tainty of continuing our march inpicnicstyle
Toward tbe north ami oast stood a solid line of
rebel cavalry, its right resting near the pike, if
t directly across it, while in the distance,
perhaps two miles away, was plainly caught
glimpses of what appeared to be a heavy col

Spring Hill was even lees encouraging, for in
that direction the enemy bad. actual possession

recurred forcibly to me.
It was evident from the actions of the enemy
that be believed a heavy force to be at the
staioii, and it was equally evident, if we ex
tricated ourselves from tbe dilemma, it must
be done through tbe exercise of strategy, and
to this end it was decided by the four officers
a that hill to deploy oar whole force as a
skirmish line, and under & feint upon the
enemy to attempt to ran oar trains by or
The line was eaickly formed, every man and
officer being given a tall understanding as to
the emergewy, and what it was hoped to accom
plish. In the meantime, tie trains had been drawn
oat on the pike, behind the hill, ready for the
The WageaflMster of my own train, Mr. Geo.
W. Hough, bad ridden with me at on to the
pike, around the point of the hill, from where
a good view of the enemy could be bad, and
given a fall understanding of our plans. He
comprehended the situation at a glance, and
passing hack along the train tbe drivers were
instructed as to what was expected of them.
The train being ready, at tbe signal agreed
npou the skirmishers moved to the at
tack; ia a few moments the train started,
and under whip and spar each team emerged
from behind the hill as though shot from tho
uuuzle of a cannon. Before tbe astonished
rebels realised wbat was coming the head of
the train struck the right of their column and
went thundering through it.
The enemy appeared to be atterlv dumb
founded, and not until the last wagon was be
yond tbeir line did I notice a single shot fired.
All this time oar skirmishers had fnllv held
the attention of tbe rebels, and as tbe train
disappeared from oar view around a point of
timber, every officer and man redoubled bis
eftorts to the sad that pursuit might be de
tected. We had ia the post train several stands of
cokMK, and in deploying the skirmish-line these
had been displayed, in full view, at command
ing points, ana moved lorward from time to
lime as the line advanced.
Daring all this time not a single soldier was
in reserve, and when tbe last wagon passed
me I was perhaps tbe only Federal soldier on
that pike from Thompson's Station to Spring
Within, perhaps, half an hoar our lino was
drawn in, the several stands of colors being left
wall to the front antii oar little force was con
centrated at the station.
After destroying a carload of ammunition
at the depot, our boys inarched off into tho
timber, west of tbe pike and railroad, to
attempt to join Schofield, around tho left of
the enemy. This it successfully accomplished

Cant Henry McCoy, with six men, in charge
of prisoners, who, I think, through a miscon
ception of ordors, attempted to pass round tho
rebel right, wore captured, but as bo and the
six men were lost by the explosion of tho
steamer Sultana, no evidence could bo had as
to the effect of our manuvers at Thompson's
Station upon the rebel force in our front.
After tho surrender of JohnEton, however, I
mot a paroled Confederate officer at Columbia,
Tenn., who told mo that tho cavalry in front
of us at Thompson's Station on tho 29th was
supported by Chalmers's Division of infantry,
and that tho whole force had been misled by
our campfires tho night before; and that Hood,
being present with Chalmers, when our fleeing
trains came in sight pointed them out, and or
dered Chalmers to gain possession of the pike;
that the prompt advance of our skirmishers
and efficient use of our extra colors held Chal
mers on the defensive, thus giving us time to
accomplish our purposes.
Taking all the circumstances into considera
tion, is it not reasonable to suppose that the
presence of the 175th Ohio at Thompson's Sta
tion on the night of the 28th of November,
1S64; the display of its fires that night, audits
strategic and energetic movements on the 29th
deterred Hood's right not only from taking
possession of the pike at Thompson's Station,
but caused a cessation of tho rebel attack upon
Opdycko iu the afternoon at Spring Hill?
Be that as it may, the exploit of saving the
trains and extricating the command from its
perilous dilemma was one worthy of a bright
page iu the history of the war, and ono that
should have placed a star upon the shoulders of
Maj. Mullenix and Capt. Deniston.
I hever kuew what report McCoy made of
tbe action of his regiment in this affair, but I
do know that soon afterward ho was made
Brevet Brigadier-General, and during tho bal
ance of his term wore a star.
The 175th loft Spring Hill about daylight,
among tho last troops, on tho morning of tho
30th, aud passed into our linos at Franklin,
between the toll-gate posts near tho cotton-gin,
not an hour before the commencement of tho
battle. It was assigned, if I remember cor
rectly, temporarily to Eiley's Brigade and
placed in reserve perhaps 150 yards in tho roar
of the cotton-giu, on tho east of tho piko, its
right resting if not on the piko at least very
close to it Certainly no other troops were be
twoen it and tho pike. Immediately in its
roar was a frame barn or cotton-shed.
After tho regiment was in position I went
with a small detail across the Harpeth Eiver to
the commissary, near the burned chimneys, to
secure rations. Before these could bo issued
word camo that the rebels were advancing, and
by the time I reached the line the enemy were
close np to our works.
I rode from the regiment over to the Carter
House to report to Gen. Cox, aud had scarcely
reached there before our lino was broken near
the cotton-gin, and within a few moments
thereafter I noticed tho 175th, led by Maj.
Mullenix, in full charge toward tho works.
The lines were restored, and I know that
this gallaut regimoat did as much to restore
them and to hold them as any other regiment
I do not know what regiments were in front
of it or on its llauks, but I do know the 175th
Qhio was in tho thickest of the fight, and that
it did not leave tho works until after the fire
which was raging among somo buildings of tho
town had almost exhausted itself.
The regimont was unknown in Schofield's
army, from tho fact that it really only joined
the column at Spring Hill tho night before.
During Hood's investment of Nashville it
occupied Fort Negley, and after the rebel re
treat was ordered back to Columbia, where it
remained until mustered out in Juno, 1865.

That Bljr Capture.
Editoe Natioxat. Tribune: Having seen
a communication in your paper recently
from L. S. Tyler, Co. H, loth Iowa, re
garding tho capture of 71 men by Iteuhon
Meek, Co. B, 15th Iowa, and two comrades, at
a spring in tho rear of that regiment on July
22, 1S64, and having seen that some comrade
doubts tho fact, I will say I hasten to verify tho
story, as I was an eye-witness of the capture of
more than a company of rebels at the time and
place given. Besides this, had Albert Homo
wood and the writer obeyed tho instructions of
Bube Meek, I, more than likely, would have
oscaped Andersoaville, and Homewood would
have lived to see the victory our men wero de
termined to win.
But of Homewood, poor, bravo comrade, when
I think of the 22d of July, at Atlanta, he is the
first object which arises before my vision. I can
hear above the din of battle and the cheering of
friends and foes, his voice, saying: "Wait,
Charlie, I am hit May God havo mercy upon
I turned and wont hack to where ho lay,
on his faco, and turned him over, and oh,
horrow! found the brains oozing from a
wound in the head. At tho same time there
came a shower of lead from tho Johnnies, ac
companied by loud cries of surrender. After a
quick survey of the situation, 1 tossed away my
Springfield rifle, and was soon ushered into the
corral, where I found quite a number of my
own regiment and nearly the entire 16th Iowa,
of my brigade, and I had tho pleasure of march
ing into the city of Atlanta with tho first
regiment which entered that place, July 22,
1564, on a forced march for Andorsonvillo

Editor National Tribute: I saw in the
issue of Jan. 17 a small picture of Fort Sanders,
Knoxville, Tenn., which is said to have been
made from a pencil-sketch in the' hands of
The author of the original sketch and photo
graphs was Mr. W. D. Blackman, now of tho
Internal Bevcnue Service at Toledo, O., being
made by him on the spot on the Sunday follow
ing the attack, and while tho red blood of tho
fallen victims was yet plainly visible on tho
ground, and in some spots yet stood in little
pools; the bottom of the ditch about the fort
presented the appearance of a slaughter-pen.
Tbe dead and wounded had been removed, but
the ground was covered with debris not at that
time considered valuable as relics.
Mr. Blackman was an artist, a citizen of
Knoxville, aud of course besieged. He left tho
original sketch in the rooms of Smiley's gal
lery, on Gay street, where he was at the time
employed. He says that cotton was used in
tbe defenses of Knoxville by the rebels at the
time of the Sanders raid, aud afterward by the
Union troops, and in this same Fort Sanders,
when besieged by Longstreet Ho saw it in
both instances and knows what he is talking
about. He also says the boys told him that
when the attack on Fort Sanders began there
were but 21 men in the fort to defend it. Truly
the conduct of tho 21 must havo been heroic
until help came to thorn. He was told of ono
man who defended an embrasure with an ax
and did wonderful execution. The man seen
on the extreme summit of tho angle was a rebel
color-bearer, who planted his colors in the dirt
and then died for so doing. Tho stumps of
trees in the foreground were strung with wire,
and formed a very bad impediment against
charging troops. Evidently both sides fought
Mr. Blackman was in Knoxville when Col.
Wood, of Georgia, was in command, and during
the raid by Col. Sanders, after whom this fort
was named. He tells somo very interesting
experiences as a citizen of that city, and espe
cially in bis capacity as an artist, taking the
pictures of rebels of a variety of sizes and kinds,
nearly always of the man-eating kind, deco

THE NATIONAL TBIBTOE:
THE 25th MICH.,
And their Great Battle at Tebbs's Bend, Ky.
Editoe National Teibune: Not having
seen anything in your paper from the 25th
Mich., I thought it would not bo amiss to con
tribute an extract from its history. The regi
ment was commanded by Col. 0. H. Moore, as
bravo a man as woro the Union blue, as the
following circumstance will illustrate:
About July 1, 1S63, Col. Moore was stationed
with five companies of his regiment on tho
north side of Green Eiver 10 miles north of
Columbia, on tho road running from Columbia
to Lebanon, Ky., and on tho 2d of July was
advised of tho fact that the rebel General John
H, Morgan was about crossing tho Cumberland
Biver to invade the State with a cavalry force
of from 3,000 to 4,000 men. Being loft to ex
ercise his own discretion, aud thero being no
Union troops nearor than at a post 30 miles dis
tant, Col. Mooro felt it to bo his duty to retard
tho progress of the great raider, if hut for a
few hours, as thoy might provo precious hours
to the country. He might havo retreated with
entire success, but from patriotic motives chose
to fight when ho could scarcely entertain the
hope that he and many others would ever live
to tell tho story of that terrible battle. After
surveying tho surrounding country, hesolected
a strong position for a battleground on the
south side of Green Biver about two miles
from the encampment, in a horse-shoo bend of
the river through which tho road ran on which
the rebel forces woro advancing. This chosen
battleground, which was at tho narrows enter
ing tho bend of tho river, afforded high bluff
banks, which protected tho flanks of the com
mand and also compelled tho enemy to fight
him upon his own front.
On tho evening of July 3 Gon. Morgan en
camped with his entire command about five
miles south of Greon Eiver, and Col. Moore,
aftor dark, advanced with his command of five
companies, numbering less than 300 men, about
two miles toward tho enemy, leaving tho river
in his rear, and occupied the ground which he
had previously selected aud prepared for tho
battle. Tho defense, which had been completed
that night, consisted of some foiled trees on the
battle-line, whiclij was in tho rear of au open
field, and was intended more particularly as an
obstruction to tho advance of cavalry; while
to tho front about 100 hundred yards, in tho
onen field, was thrown up a temporary earth
work, which was intended to check the ad
vance of tho onemy, and moro especially to
command a position where ho would evidently
plant a battery.
This work" was not intended to he hold
agaiust charges of a superior force, on account
of the flanks not being strong, and was occu
pied by only 75 men, who woro instructed that
when it bocame necessary to abandon tho work
it should he done by flanking to tho right and
left from the center, so as to unmask tho re
servo force on tho battle-lino and expose tho
enemy to their fire. This work was located,
in anticipation of its capture by tho rebels, a lit
tle down the slope of tho field, so that when it
was in possession of tho enemy it would bo
useless, and leave him exposed to a deadly fire.
At the gray of tho morning the fire of tho
enemy upon tbe pickets resounded through
the woods, and the entire rebel division under
Morgan was pressing upon our front. Tho fire
was returned with spirit as tho pickets retired
to the breastwork, where they joined about 75
of thoir comrades already in the advance work;
and there, with their united fire, as sharpshoot
ers they held the enemy in check, without ex
hibiting their numbers and the real object of
The rebel artillory of four pieces had gained
tho anticipated position, and at once opened
fire with some effect, when Morgan suspended
firing, and, uudor a flag of truce, demanded au
immediate and unconditional surrender of tho
entire force and stockade. Col. Mooro replied
to tho demand: "Present my compliments to
Gen. Morgan, and say to him that this being
'tho 4th of July, I cannot entertain the proposi
tion to surrender."
Col. Allston, Morgan's Chief of Staff, said : " I
hope you will not consider me as dictatorial on
this occasion. I will bo frank. You see the
breach wo havo made upon your work with
our battery; you cannot expect to repulse Gen.
Morgan's whole division with your littlo com
mand; you have resisted us gallantly and do
serve credit for it, and now 1 hope you will
save useless bloodshed by reconsidering your
reply to Gon. Morgan."
To this Col. Moore replied: "Sir, when you
assume to know my strength, you assume too
much. I havo a duty to perform to my conn
try, and thercforo cannot reconsider my reply
to Geu. Morgan."
The rebel officor, seemingly moved by these
remarks, extended his hand and said: "Good
by, Col. Moore; God only knows which of us
may fall first."
They turned their horses and galloped in
opposite directions, and at once Tonewod tho
conflict. No sooner had the rebel battery re
opened fire than Col. Alporo commanded tho
force to "rise up and pick off thoso gunners at
the battery." At the word, a deliberate and
doadly firo by rank was delivered, which si
lenced tho battery.
Col. Johnson's Brigade then charged tho
work, and tho little command abandoned it as
previously instructed; and when the rebels
reached it they found that it availed them
nothing against tho deadly firo which was
poured into them from the main force on tho
battle-line in the timber. Tho foo, with hid
eous yells, charged across the open field a num
ber of times in tho face of a terrific fire, which
repulsed them on each occasion with severe
loss. The conflict was almost a hand-to-hand
struggle, with nothing but a line of felled trees
separating the combatants. At tho samo time
tho rebels wore engaged in cutting out a gorgo
leading through the precipitous bluff into the
river bottom, which had been obstructed with
felled timber. Tho entrance was finally effect
ed, and a regiment commanded by Col. Cho
nault opened fire on tho right flank of tho lino
of Union troop3. This was a most critical and
trying moment. Tho enemy had gained an
important point; to defeat it was of tho ut
most importance. A company had been hold
in reserve for any emergency which might
arise during tho battle, and it was now brought
forward, deployed as skirmishers across tho
river bottom, with the right flank extending
beyond the rebel line, aud presented the ap
pearance of being tho advance lino of reinforce
ments. The strength of Col. Moore's command
was a matter of doubt with tho enemy, ren
dered more so by his instructions to his men
to keep quiet and pour in as rapid aud deadly
a fire as possible. As cheering was suppressed,
nothing but the efficacy of the firing afforded
ground for estimating their strength, and when
Col. Moore brought forward and mauuvered
tbe reserve company with tho shrill notes of
his bugle it had tho desired effect of impressing
the rebels with the idea that reinforcements of
cavalry or artillory woro advancing; aud by
tho bold front and deliberate firing of tho
lino of skirmishers tho rebel command in tho
river bottom was routed, its Colonel killed, and
it was driven hack through tho gorgo through
which they had entered, disheartened and de
feated. New courage inspired tho heroic littlo hand,
who had sustained eight determined charges
upon their front when tho attack upon their
right flank was defeated. Tho enemy, having
mot with a heavy loss, after a battle of four
hours' duration, retreated, leaving a number of
killed and wounded on tho field greater than
tho entire number of the patriotic littlo band
that opposed them. Among tho number of
killed aud wounded woro 22 commissioned offi
cers. It was tho intention of Morgan, as ho de
clared, to capture the city of Louisville; but
this unexpected and terrible repulse cost him
moro than 12 hours' delay, aud caused him
which fact ho stated to chango his plans and
abandon his attack on Louisville. By this
brilliantly-fought battle the city was saved
from sack aud pillago aud tho Government
frorn tho loss of an immense amount of property,
consisting of munitions of war and army sup
plies, amounting to tho value of many millions
of dollars. Maj.-Gen. Hartsuff ackuowlwlonil
the victory in a general order recounting the
heroic deed. The Legislature of Kentucky
also acknowledged the services of Col. Moore
and his command on that occasion in compli
mentary resolutions. Morgan himself admired
Col. Moore's generalship so much in tho con
duct of tho battlo that he, too, sent him com
plimentary messages, and announced that he
promoted him to tho rank of Brigadier-General.
Col. Allston, who was captured a fow
days after tho battle, and with him his private
journal, which waB published in a memoranda
of tho battle of the 4th of July, quotes Mor
gan's demand for the surrender of the Union
command and Col. Moore's reply, and adds:
" Tho Colonel is a gallant man, and tho entire
arrangoment of his defense entitles him to tbo
highest credit for military skill. Wo would
mark such a man in our army for promotion."
The Colonel said the only brigade be wanted
to command was tho 25th Mioh.H. C. Lim

Eev. George E. Fuller, Algona, Iowa, would
like to know tho name of tho comrade from
Minnesota who was in Salisbury Prison in tho
Spring of 18C2, and so .kindly cared for tho
writer while there. Tho comrade referred to
was detailed as a steward in tho hospital de
partment, and gave Comrade Fuller quarters
over tho kitchen, whoro tho mush was made
for the sick. This was in violation of tho robel
Sorgoant's orders, which woro that Fuller
should go over to tho old building, whoro there
woro 1,400 Union prisoners.
William Hitsing, Edgerton, Dak., says that
ho aud his brother Charles would bo glad to
recoivo any information of thosorvico of thoir
father, William Hitsing, sr., who enlisted at
Cloveland, O., in some Ohio regimont at tho
outbreak of tho war. Tho name of his Captain
was Zimmerman. Their father died about 18
years ago of consumption.

O., would liko tho address of tho four ox-Con-fedcrato
soldiers, or any ono of them, who car
ried him off tho battlefield of Gettysburg on
the third day of tho fight. Ho was lying about
half a mile southwest of Gettysburg and very
near the Confederate line of battlo. Tho four
men had been carrying the Confederate wound

Corrections and Criticisms.
A Bummer of the Fourth Division, Seven

division were in possession of that town long
heforo tho advance-guard of tho Fourtoonth
Corps approached, and several of these foragers
woro captured and killed iu tho streets of that

that Comrade Eussell, in his account of tho

Samuel F. Stanley, Higdon's Store, Ga., says
that at the outbreak of tho war his family livod
iu Georgia. His fathor, who was 80 years old,

as loyal on all occasions. Thoy wore persecuted

Co. E, 23d Wis., at the ago of 14 years and eight

suustroko, and two comrades wero detailed to

If either of theso comrades are now living, or

Cotton at Knoxville.
Charles F. Roberts, Co. , 29th Mass., Ran
dolph, Mass., says that tho only troops in Fort
Sanders during tho battlo at Knoxville, Tenn.,
woro tho 79fch N. Y., 2d Mich., 29th Mass. and
Bonjarain's battery of Regular Artillery, and
that they all fought liko heroes. The 29th
Mass. captured two stands of colors, one from
the 3d Ga. aud tho othor from tho2dMiss. Tho
Regular battery did as good work as was over
done by any body of troops. Tho writer was
there and in the battlo, and knows that cotton
bales wero used in tho construction of the fort.
A. H. West, Henshaw's battery, 6th 111. L. A.,
Utica, 111., says: " As I was ono of the ' kids '
at tho siego of Knoxville, Tenn., I will tell the
readers of tho best soldiers' paper published
what I saw thero. I am very confident cotton
bales wore used in the construction of the
works. Thore was a fort lust west of the In
sane Asylum Building made almost entirely of
cotton-bales, which was called Fort Cotton. I
also saw cotton-bales around tho embrasures of
Fort Sanders. Our brigade was composed of
tho 111th Ohio, 107th 111., 23d Mich., 13th and
16th Ky., commanded by Col. Chapin, of tho
23d Mich. I should liko to know if any of tho
boysVomcmbor tho branbroad wo used to get
during tho siege."
J. M. Patrick, Co. E, 3d Iowa, Bedford, Iowa,
expresses his indignation at tho manner in
which tho boys who woro tho blue have been
treated in tho once seceding and disloyal States.
Ho thinks tho latest outrage the killing of
Comrade Clayton in Arkansas should bring
forth tho condemnation of every loyal man in
the country, and if President Cleveland placed
tho Stato under martial law tho murderer
would very soon bo found.
Franklin H. Hoover, Sergeant, Co. D, 27th
Mich., Ransom, Mich., would like to have some
of the old Army of tho Potomac boys tell what
they know about the blowing up of their ammunition-boats
on the James Bivor, Aug. 9, 186-1.
Tho writer was quite soveroly wounded at that
D. C. Barrows, Quartermaster-Sergeant, 22d
HI., Webb, Kan., wants to know why somo
member of that regiment does not write some
of its history for The National Tbibune.
Heknows they are not all "mustered out," hav
ing met a number of the boys at tho National
Encampment at St Louis. He thinks Capt. S.
B. Hood would bo tho right person to act as
historian, as ho was in from start to finish".
The writer knows he was at Chickamauga, for
after the Captain was wounded he tied up his
head with a piece of wagon-sheot. Ho wants to
hear from tho Captain.
L. G. Felnor, 1st N. M. Cav., Fort Bayard,
N. M., thinks the troops who defended Now
Moxico and Colorado, and scourod tho great
desert have not received justice at the hands
of the historiaus.
H. H. Martin, Co. B, 20th Iowa, Center Point,
Iowa, would liko to have some comrades of the
37th 111. tell what became of the cow they had
with tho Army of tho Frontier in Missouri and
Arkansas. Comrade Martin thinks that the
battlo of Vicksburg was a moro important vic
tory than Gettysburg, as it split the Confeder
acy in two aud cut off the supplies in Texas.
D. McCashin, U. S. Lights off Sattersville,
N. J., says that any comrade desirous of doing
a good deed by a needy brother who cannot
afford to take The National Teibune, but is
anxious to do so, is requested to write to him
for a name and address. Tho writer himself
sends in a subscription for such a comrade.
Samuel Walkor, Co. D, 14th 111., Day, Kan.,
was a incmbor of Gen. Hurlbut's Division. He
wants to know if his comrades remember the
order Gen. Grant sout to Gon. Hurlbut: "You
will join forces with Gen. Rosccraus or sacri
fice every man in your division." Gon. Hurl
but, although a splendid fighter, was rather
Btunned by this order, and sent back word to
Gen. Grant to know if it was correct. When
Grant answered that it was, Hurlbut started
to tho bloody battle on the Hatchie River.
Georgo D. Keeler, Co. B, 1st Conn. H. A.,
Box 432, South Norwalk, Conn., having seen
the articlo describing the knives in the Ohio
Relic-Room, thinks he can heat any of them.
Ho sends tho diagram of a knifo which is 191
inches long in tho blade, whilo the haudlo is
5i inches long. It is English mado, and was
captured from a South Carolina regimont at tho
battle of Hanover Courthouso, Va., in May,
1862. At this battlo his regiment acted as in
fantry, and wore under Geu. Hooker. Ho
thinks it is a vory valuable relic, and should
be purchased for somo collection. Tho haudlo
has C. S. in raised letters, showing conclusively
that it belonged to tho rebels.
Charles Allinger, 2d Mo., Fond du Lac, Wis.,
thinks it is rather quoor that thore is no men
tion made of Geu. Asboth, who commanded tho
right wing of tho Union army at Pea Ridge,
and who was wounded on tho evouiugof tho
7th iu front of Elkhorn Tavern, in tho accounts
of this battle.
Capt W. H. Healy, Co. I, 8th N. Y. Cav., has
sout to Comrade Honry Norton, Norwich, N.
Y., who is preparing a history of tho regimont,
a sketch of his company from March until Octo
ber, 1862, which Comrade Norton pronounces
oscoodingly interesting aud accurate.
A. F. Huggins, Co. H, 129th 111., Lakeman,
Mo., would liko to know if tho boys of Gen.
Harrison's Brigado, who stood up so bravely
with him at Peach Tree Creole, aro all dead.
Henry Yontsch, Camdon Placo, Minn., pro
poses to tho comrades of his regimont that thoy
hold a Reunion somo timo this year.
Prof. M. W., Box 79, Stockbam, Neb., wants to
hire or adopt a boy of 12 or 14 years of ago who
can boat tho tenor-drum; a soldier's or sailor's
orphan preferred. Ho will treat tho boy woll.
Tho writer sorved during tho war, and was
confined for a timo in Andorsonvillo.
J. G. Guill, Co. E, 87th 111., Flint, 111., does
not claim to havo planted tho first flag on such
and such a fort, but does claim that ho and
Gen. Grant, with a fow others, captured Vicks
burg. He would liko to hear from his old com
rades. John Kaufman, Co. K, M't'd Inf., Brad
ford Junctiou, O., thinks tho "National Trib
buuo" Pension Bill is tho best mcasuro yet
introduced for tho relief of old soldiers, and
trusts that it will havo a speedy passage when
it comes up bofovo Congress. lib would liko
tho addresses of any of tho officers of Stone's
Texas regiment (Confederate), who wore at the
battle of Sabiuo Crossroads.

Dr. S. L. Williams, Clarence, Iowa, says: "I
havo used it to grand effect in a caso of neural
