The Great Railroad Raid

I was able to go to Iowa City to the Historical Society of Iowa and do some more research. I found this article in the
Annals of Iowa. This is a very good story that includes the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Iowa Cavalry and their participation in raid. It is a two part article which relates the story of a Union raid on Confederate railroad supply lines in the late summer of 1863.
Although the Union failed to bring away the locomotives and rolling stock, they had struck the deteriorating rail system
of the Confederates a terrible blow. Between Winslow's and Phillips' raiders, they had destroyed 34 locomotives,
and 172 cars being passenger, box, and flat. The sources that Edwin C. Bearss used in putting the story together makes
for some very accountable reading for descendants and war buffs alike.

ANNALS OF IOWA

The Great Railroad Raid


By Edwin C. Bearss
Washington, D.C.

The following is the first portion a two-part article which relates the story of a Union raid on Confederate railroad supply lines in the late summer of 1863. Iowa's 2d, 3d, and 4th Cavalries played a significant role in the action.
Part 2 of "The Great Railroad Raid" will appear in the winter issue of the Annals. Sources will be given at that time.

Part 1

    Following his return to Big Black River from Jackson, Miss., in late July 1863, Maj. Gen. William T. Sherman began looking for new ways to harass the battered Confederate forces in Mississippi. Meantime, reliable reports had reached the Union authorities at LaGrange, Tenn., that there were 60 locomotives and more than 350 cars at Water Valley. The same informants told the Union commander at LaGrange, Col. John K. Mizner, that the bridge across the Tallahatchie was standing and that the Mississippi Central Railroad between Grand Junction, Tenn., and Oxford, Miss., was passable. They informed the colonel that there were a number of breaks in the track between Oxford and Water Valley.

    When he relayed this intelligence to his immediate superior, Brig. Gen. Grenville M. Dodge, Mizner asked permission to try to capture the rolling stock. To insure the success of the projected raid, Mizner asked Dodge to reinforce his cavalry striking force with 3,000 infantry and a regiment of engineers.

    Dodge on July 28 forwarded the correspondence regarding the rolling sock to the commander of the XVI Corps, Maj. Gen. Stephen A. Hurlbut, in Memphis. Dodge argued that it would be possible for him to send 2,000 cavalry to Water Valley and still have enough troopers left to protect the Memphis and Charleston Railroad. The cavalry would be followed by infantry and engineers.

    Dodge believed that the Federals would have to act promptly. If Jackson had been evacuated by Sherman's army, Dodge reasoned, the Confederates would start moving the engines and cars south of the Yalobusha. Furthermore, if the Federals were to capture the rolling stock, they would have to strike secretly and swiftly, because it was reported that the Confederates had filled the cars with combustibles.

    Before giving Dodge the go ahead, Hurlbut decided to contact Maj. Gen. Ulysses S. Grant. hurlbut's communication reached Grant's Vicksburg headquarters on August 4. The energetic Grant decided to employ two raiding columns in an effort to bag this valuable prize.
    Writing Hurl but, Grant pointed out that the destruction of the railroads centering on Jackson by Sherman's forces would prevent the Southerners from transferring the badly needed engines and cars to other parts of the Confederacy. If the work involved in rebuilding the bridges on the Mississippi and Tennessee Railroad between Memphis and Grenada wouldn't be too great, Grant thought that it might be profitable for the Federals to send out a force charged with their reconstruction. When the bridges had been rebuilt, the rolling stock could be taken to Memphis.

    Grant informed Hurlbut that he would send a raiding column from Vicksburg to collect "all rolling-stock and take it as far north as the road is in running order." Hurlbut was to send troops from Memphis to meet the Vicksburg cavalry men and cover the working parties charged with rebuilding the bridges on the Mississippi and Tennessee Railroad. The Memphis column was to move out "as early as possible."
    At the same time, Grant addressed a note to Sherman. Grant informed Sherman of the scheme which he had out lined to Hurlbut. Sherman was to cooperate in the under taking. A fast moving cavalry column ( about 1,000 strong) would leave the Vicksburg perimeter and march on Grenada.
    Acknowledging Grant's communication, Sherman suggested that a tin-clad and a transport loaded with supplies be sent to Yazoo City. While en route to Grenada, the cavalry men would rendezvous with the naval force and draw additional rations and forage. At Grenada, the troopers would burn the bridges across the Yalobusha, "so that the locomotives and cars can alone be taken northward."

    When Grant examined Sherman's communication, he was shocked to see the reference to the destruction of the Grenada bridges. Grant realized that if the bridges across the Yalobusha were burned as soon as the Vicksburg column reached Grenada, it would be impossible to transfer the rolling stock from the tracks of the Mississippi Central to the Mississippi and Tennessee. Cautioning Sherman against the premature destruction of the bridges, Grant pointed out that if the cavalry started within the next 48 to 72 hours, it would be soon enough.

    Replying to Grant's note, Sherman observed that he didn't plan for his cavalry to burn the Grenada bridges until all the engines and cars had been shuttled to the Mississippi and Tennessee Railroad. Sherman also informed Grant that he had alerted his cavalry to be ready to ride on short notice.
    Two days later, on the 6th, Grant addressed another message to Sherman regarding the projected railroad raid. Sherman was told to have his cavalry column ready to take the field on the 10th. All rolling stock found on the Mississippi Central ws to be collected and moved northward. The troopers were to push on until they encountered the Memphis bluecoats.

    Following receipt of this dispatch, Sherman issued a Special Order placing the hard-hitting Col. Edward F. Winslow in charge of the raiding force. Winslow's command was to consist of the 3d and 4th iowa, and the 5th Illinois Cavalry Regiments. Before leaving their camp on Big Black, the cavalry officers were to see that their men were provided with four days' rations.
    On August 8th Sherman forwarded a  detail set of instruction to Winslow. The colonel was to have his recently organized brigade ready to ride at daybreak on the 10th. The Union troopers were to head for the Benton road. On the other side of Mechanicsburg, the raiders were to turn off the Benton road and make for Yazoo City. they were to rendezvous at Yazoo City with a gunboat loaded with supplies. As soon as his men had rested and drawn provisions, Winslow was to proceed to Lexington. The raiders were to push eastward from Lexington and strike the Mississippi Central Railroad. Before advancing on Grenada, Winslow was to throw out scouting parties to make sure that the engines and rolling stock were still spotted on the section of the railroad north of the Yalobusha. If there were any trains south of Grenada, they were to be captured.

    At Grenada, Winslow could expect to meet the Union raiding column sent south by Hurlbut. Winslow was to communicate with this force. Between them, the Union officers were  "to use all possible efforts to get these cars and locomotives into Memphis."
    Sherman felt confident that the Memphis column would have already repaired the Mississippi and Tennessee Railroad. he therefore believed that Winslow would encounter no difficulty in running the captured trains into Memphis. In case the engineers and conductors refused to work for the Yankees, Winslow was authorized to "use force to compel them to work their engines and trains."

    Following the fall of Vicksburg and the Confederate retreat from Gettysburg, the Washington government had changed its policy. For the time being efforts were to be made to conciliate the people of the South wherever they might come within reach of Union armies. Sherman accordingly directed Winslow to "carry money," since "it is now to the interest of our Government that all plundering and pillaging should cease." Union men and small farmers along the line of march were to be paid for their corn, bacon, beef, and vegetables. Large planters were to be given a receipt signed by either Winslow's chief quartermaster or commissary. Whenever one of his men's horses broke down, Winslow was authorized to confiscate a remount, exchange the broken down animal and give a certificate of the transaction fixing the difference in value.

    If on reaching Grenada, Winslow found the Memphis column strong enough to take care of the rolling stock, his brigade was to return to the Vicksburg area by way of Yazoo City. But, if there was any doubt, Winslow's troopers were to continue to Memphis, and return to Vicksburg by boat.
    Grant's letter of August 4th reached memphis on the 8th. Replying immediately, Hurlbut announced that a force would be sent down the Mississippi and Tennessee Railroad to cooperate with the Vicksburg column. According to the latest information reaching Memphis, Hurlbut commented, the engines and cars were guarded by a small detachment of Confederates. These men were said to have orders to destroy the rolling stock at the first sign of a Union advance.

    Hurlbut was afraid that the cost of repairing the railroad would exceed the value of the stock. It was his opinion that the rolling stock would have to be destroyed. If, however, the engines and cars were still at Water Valley, Hurlbut continued, it would be less expensive to try to bring them to Grand Junction over the Mississippi Central.
    Two days later, news reached Hurlbut confirming that the locomotives and cars were still at Water Valley. According to the latest reports, the Confederate authorities were repairing the railroads in the Jackson area in an effort to remove the desperately needed rolling stock to other sections of the Confederacy. At this very moment, Hurlbut notified Grant, an expedition was being organized at LaGrange. This force would try to capture the trains, and, if practicable, escort them to Grand Junction. Hurlbut felt certain that the Rebels would destroy the rolling stock before the bluecoats could reach it.

    Hurlbut was confronted with problems in organizing a force strong enough to insure the operation's success. To protect the Memphis and Charleston Railroad against Rebel raiders, the Union officers had been compelled to disperse their cavalry. A concentration of the mounted units slated to participate in the "great railroad raid" would have to be effected. After studying his maps, Hurlbut decided to employ three columns. These units were to advance out of the Union bases at LaGrange, Collierville and Pocahontas. Pushing southward into north Mississippi, the columns were to rendezvous at Oxford, 18 miles north of Water Valley.

    On August 11th Hurlbut telegraphed Mizner: "You will dispatch as soon as practicable a force of cavalry and mounted infantry, not less than 1,000 men ... to proceed as rapidly as possible to the neighborhood of Water Valley." This force was to try to capture and bring in the rolling stock reportedly operating on the Mississippi Central Railroad. To operate the trains, the column would be accompanied by 50 men from Bissell's Engineer Regiment of the West. IF the expedition were unable to bring out the engines and cars, they were to be destroyed, especially the wheels and trucks. Information had filtered through to Hurlbut that the Confederacy was having a difficult time manufacturing wheels and axles.

    The troopers from Mizner's command were to watch for Winslow's column, which had reportedly left the Vicksburg area on the 8th. so far as possible, the raiders were to refrain from wrecking havoc on anything  but the railroads; Hurlbut calculated that the Federals might need the crops of north Mississippi to supplement their commissary. On their return march, the Frederals were to bring in all able-bodied Negroes, who expressed a willingness to enlist in the Union army.
    In accordance with Hurlbut's directive, Mizner called for Maj. Datus E. Coon of the 2d Iowa Cavalry. Coon ws handed a copy of Hurlbut's telegram and told to have 200 picked men of his regiment ready to take the field at 5 a.m. on August 13th. After crossing Wolf River, Coon's column was to bear toward the southeast. If all went according to schedule, Coon troopers would rendezvous with a second column at Salem or Hickory Flats.

    Col. August Mersy, at Pocahontas, was alerted on August 11th to get the 9th Illinois Mounted Infantry ready to take the field. Mersy on the morning of the 12th issued instructions for Lt. Col. Jesse J. Phillips to see that his men were issued six days' rations and were ready to take the field by noon. As so often happens in warfare, the troopers had drawn their rations and ammunition by the stipulated time only to find that there would be a delay. Phillips would have to wait for the 50 engineers who were to accompany the expedition. It was the afternoon of the 13th before all the engineers could be supplied with mules.

    It was starting to get dark on August 13th, when a courier rode up to Phillips' Pocahontas command post with a second message. Unfolding the scrap of paper, Phillips found that he was to move out immediately, taking the road to Ripley and Oxford. At Oxford, Phillips' regiment would rendezvous with Coon's Column.

    Just as "Boots and Saddles" sounded another staff officer come pounding up with a telegram which Mersy had just received from Mizner. Mizner wanted the Pocahontas Federals to know that Coon's command had moved out at daybreak. Consequently, Phillips' regiment was to bear well to the west so as to join Coon's column, "southwest of Salem or near Hickory Flats."

Coon's Iowans had marched from LaGrange as scheduled. At the crossing of the Wolf, coon was reinforced by 200 men of the 3d Michigan and 100 men of the 11th Illinois Cavalry. This gave the major a striking force of "500 well mounted men." From the Wolf, the column marched to Ripley, where Coon expected to rendezvous with Phillip's regiment. Although Coon didn't know it, Phillips' column was still at Pocahontas.

    After waiting several hours, Coon decided to push on. It was late in the afternoon when the head of the column reached the Tippah River, which recent rains had caused to boom. While the troopers were able to cross without too much difficulty, the wagons and ambulances posed a problem. To get them over the surging river, it was necessary to unload them and place the contents on a old scow which was found moored to the bank. Considerable time was lost by this operation. It was getting dark by the time the vehicles had been ferried over the stream and had been reloaded. The troopers spent the night of the 13th about two miles south of the ford.

     At daylight, the blueclads pushed on to Hickory Flats, where they arrived at 9 a.m. The inhabitants, when questioned by Coon, reported that nothing had been seen or heard of Phillips' column. Coon was puzzled, He wondered what could have happened to the 9th Illinois Mounted Infantry. After discussing the situation with his officers, Coon determined to push on. Six hours later, the column rode up to Rocky Ford. Two hours were lost in getting the troopers and their supply wagons and ambulances across the Tallahatchie. Since time was becoming increasingly important, Coon determined to keep his men in the saddle until 7 p.m. The troopers spent the night of August 14 at Pegee's plantation, five miles southwest of Rocky Ford.

    Coon saw that reveille was sounded in time for the cavalrymen to make their toilet, east their breakfasts and be on their horses by daylight. At 10 a.m. the column entered Oxford.

   The "excessive heat" had exhausted the men and their mounts. Upon occupying the town. Coon called a halt. Except for the men detailed to raid the corn cribs in the area, the rest of the brigade was allowed to rest.

   Early in the afternoon, the outposts on the Rocky Ford road sighted an approaching column. The alarm was sounded. Within a few minutes, the newcomers identified themselves as Phillips' command.

   Darkness had enveloped the area on August 13, when the 330 troopers of the 9th Illinois Mounted Infantry rode out of their Pocahonts encampment. Taking the Salem road, the blucoats forded Tippah River a Buck's Springs. After passing through Hickory Flats, where Phillips learned that Coon's column was 24 hours ahead of him, the mounted infantry struck for the Tallahatchie, which they crossed on the night of the 14th. As soon as the last man had forded the river, Phillips called a halt. The men and their mounts were allowed to take a well deserved break. Phillips was troubled by his failure to overtake Coon's column.

   At 4 a.m. on August 15, Phillips and his officers aroused the men. The march was resumed. As the troopers pushed on toward Oxford, scouts were sent out to see if they could locate Coon's troopers.

   Phillips and his officers found Coon anxiously awaiting their arrival. Until Coon showed him a copy of Hurlbut's August 11 wire to Mizner, Phillips had no idea of the "object of the expedition." Since he believed that the success of the raid depended on "rapidity of movement," Phillips announced that the combined force would strike immediately for Water Valley.

   The bugles sounded at 2 p.m. As soon as the officers had formed their units, the bluecoated horsemen rode out of Oxford, taking the Water Valley road. Having learned from Coon that another column was en route to join the raiders, Phillips called on early halt. Camp was established on the night of August 15, six miles south of Oxford.

   Lt. Col. Martin R. M. Wallace had been placed in command of the third column. According to the instructions received from Mizner, Wallace's command (picked men from the 3d, 4th, and 9th Illinois Calvary) was to leave Collierville on August 13. Wallace was to take the most direct route from his base camp to the Abbeville crossing of the Tallachatchie.

   Wallace lost no time in getting his command ready to ride. When the column took up the march, it numbered 720 hard riding cavalrymen. Besides several ambulances and a number of supply wagons, Wallace's force was accompanied by four 12-pounder mountain howitzers.

   From Collierville, the troopers marched to Byhalia. As the vanguard thundered into the village, a squad of Confederate horsemen leaped into their saddles and fled. Troopers from the 9th Illinois raced in pursuit. Like many of the Union cavalry officers in the west, Wallace dressed his scouts in citizen's garb. While this aided the Federals in getting information from unwary civilians, it had its handicaps. One of Wallace's uniformed troopers gunned down a scout from the 9th Illinois. The Rebels, having a good head start, escaped their pursuers.

   The brigade spent the night of August 13 camped on Withers' plantation. Before retiring, a number of the blueclads slipped out of camp and raided the nearby planters' orchards and gardens. Peaches, apples and watermelons were found in abundance. Wallace had his men on the road at daybreak. Co M, 4th Illinois was assigned the advance. Ten miles southeast of Byhalia, the Yankee vanguard sighted a Confederate patrol. Shots were exchanged. Seeing that they were badly outnumbered, the Rebels beat a hasty retreat. One blucoat was wounded in the clash.

   About a mile north of Cox's Corners, the Union advance surprised and captured a Confederate courier. When he searched the man. Capt. Joseph E. Hitt of  Co M 4th Illinois found a note from Rebel Capt. W. G. Middleton addressed to Maj. Alexander Chalmers. The message told of the march of Wallance's command.

   Passing through Waterford Wallace's troopers reached the Tallahatchie a nightfall. Since the recent rains had caused a marked rise in the rivers of north Mississippi, the Yankees had a difficult time crossing the Tallahatchie. It was 11 a.m. the next morning, the 15th, before the last man had reached the south bank. The march was resumed. At Oxford, Wallace learned that the units with whom his brigade was to rendezvous had ridden southward several hours before. Observing that the pace of the march was beginning to take its toll, Wallace halted his troopers late on the afternoon of the 15th at Buckner's plantation, two and one-half miles south of Oxford. A patrol was sent racing ahead to notify phillips and Coon that Wallace would join them in the morning.

   Since Wallace was his junior, Phillips would be in charge of the expedition. PHillips was shocked to discover that Wallace, prior to his departure from Collierville, had been giver no instructions beyond those entrusted to Coon.

   Shortly after daybreak on August 10, Winslow's cavalry officers had mustered and inspected their troopers. The 800 cavalrymen of the 3d and 4th Iowa, and the 5th Illinois swing onto their mounts. By 5 a.m. the column was under way.

   The officers and men who were left behind cheered and shouted encouragement to their comrades as they rode out of the cavalry encampment on Big Black River. After leaving the Flowers' plantation cantonment area, Winslow turned the head of his column into the Bridgeport road. Leaving the Bridgeport road at Tiffintown and following a farm road, the raiders headed for Neeley's plantation, where they entered the Benton road. Many of the cavalrymen were familiar with the Benton road. During the recent Vicksburg campaign, they had started up this road several times-- their object, the railroad bridge across the Big Black at Way's Bluff. Each time, the blueclads had been turned back by the Confederates.

   Since the brigade would be called on to make long, hard marches, Winslow had carefully culled his command before it left Flowers' plantation. Only the best conditioned men and horses were take. Most of the raiders were armed with hard-hitting Sharp's or Union carbines. A number of the men, however, were still equipped with "a variety of cavalry guns, inferior in range and poor in construction." The troopers who were armed with these sub-standard weapons swore that the had never been examined or tested by the War Department.

   In accordance with Sherman's instruction, the cavalrymen carried only four day's rations. Winslow expected to dray additional supplies from the nave a Yazoo City. Realizing that the success of the operation would depend on mobility, Winslow had seen that all excess gear was left on Big Black. Never was there "a lighter column. There was no train, not a wagon, not even an ambulance or a pack mule."

  To conserve the strength of the men and horses for the hard marches which he knew were in the offing. Winslow halted his brigade a 1 p.m. The cavalrymen camped on either side of the Benton road, eight miles southwest of Mechanicsburg, the blueclads turned into the Yazoo City road. Noon found the brigade a Roach's plantation, which was within nine miles of Yazoo City. Winslow decided against pushing on. Another early camp was made.

   When the head of the column entered Yazoo City a 8 a.m. on August 12, Winslow was shocked to see no sign of the Union Navy. Questioning the inhabitants, the colonel was disgusted to learn that a gunboat, several transports and a number of troops had been at Yazoo City. These troops, the people stated, had reboarded the steamboats at an early hour on the previous day. The gunboat and transports had then started down river. No one was able to tell Winslow whether or not the Navy planned an early return to Yazoo
City.

   This unexpected turn of events presented Winslow with a serious problem He had no rations for the men or forage for the horses. To make matters worse, the corn was not yet ready to be harvested. A march to Grenada and, perhaps, to Memphis would take the brigade into an area of which the colonel had little knowledge.

   Winslow called a staff meeting; all of the commissioned officers attended. After reading Sherman's letter of instructions to the group, Winslow requested their advice, Next, the colonel asked the officers to express themselves on the question, "whether to go forward or to return if no supplies should arrive." As was customary, the lowest ranking officer spoke first; he advised a return to their base. Each of the other officers in his turn recommended the same course of action. Winslow did not express an opinion at this time.

   As soon as he had dismissed his officers, Winslow called for his most experienced scout. The man was told to take a strong mule and ride down the Valley road. He was to see if he could contact the naval force which had left Yazoo City the previous morning. Whether he located the boats or not, the scout was admonished to be back a Yazoo City by 4 a.m. on the 14th. The scout went as far as Satartia and was back at Yazoo City by the designated hour. Reporting to Winslow, he stated that 'he had seen neither steamboat nor troops, but had learned that they had passed below Satartia, presumably on their return to Vicksburg."

   Despite his subordinates' opinion that the column ought to retrace its steps, Winslow decided to press on. Questioning the inhabitants, Winslow learned that a strong force of Confederate cavalry (Whitfield's Texas Brigade) was stationed at Canton. Winslow believed that if his brigade moved rapidly, it could steal a day's march on the Texans. Once his column had gained such a lead, the colonel felt that the Confederates would be unable to overtake it. Orders were issued for the regimental commanders to have their units ready to march at a moment's notice.

                                                                               *            *          *

The task of defending northwest Mississippi and the Mississippi Central Railroad had been given to Brig. Gen. James R. Chalmers' under strenght command numbering about 1,700 effectives. To carry out his mission, Chalmers deployed the 18th Mississippi Cavalry Battalion south of the Memphis and Charleston Railroad. The 2d Regiment Mississippi State Cavalry was posted at Senatobia, while Chalmers' main striking force, 682 strong, was massed at Panola. Two regiments of Mississippi State Cavalry were out arresting deserters and men who had fled their homes to avoid being conscripted. A battalion of cavalry, the 6th Mississippi, was camped near Carrollton.

   Gen. Joseph E. Johnston, having received several sharp notes from President Jefferson Davis on the subject, finally began formulating plans to transfer the rolling stock from the Mississippi Central to the Southern Railroad of Mississippi east of Jackson. Johnston accordingly issued orders for Chalmers to see that the bridges and trestles on the railroad north of Jackson which had been destroyed in late July by the Federals were repaired. To facilitate this work and in order to confer with Johnston, Chalmers left Grenada on August 11 for Canton and Morton. Pending Chalmers' return, Col. W. F. Slemons would be in charge of the Confederate troops in northwest Mississippi.

   When Chalmers reached Canton on the 12th, he found that Confederate Brig. Gen. William H. Jackson's cavalry division had recrossed the Pearl. Jackson and a large number of his men were in Canton. During the day news reached Canton the the Yankees-- Winslow's column-- had occupied Yazoo City. Slemons was notified of this possibly dangerous development. The commander of the 6th Mississippi Cavalry Battalion as Coila ws alerted to watch the Yazoo City Yankees closely, and to rush his organized companies to Vaughan's Station to guard stores.

   Two days later, on the 14th, Slemons began receiving alarming reports from his scouts in the area south of the Memphis and Charleston Railroad. Scout Givens had spotted Wallace's column as it thundered through Byhalia, the previous afternoon. Besides observing that the Yankees took the road to Wyatt, the scout had talked to several of the Federals. In addition to obtaining on accurate figure as to the strength of Wallace's column, Givens was able to report that the Federals had "eight ambulances, six wagons, with eight
days' rations, a number of spades, shovels, picks and axes, and one pontoon bridge.

   A second Confederate scout had sighted Coon's column as it struck southeastward from LaGrange toward Salem. Like Givens, this man was able to converse with several of the blucoats. When questioned, the Yanks said they were en route to Water Valley/

   Upon receipt of this intelligence, Slemons sent several staff officers galloping with orders for Cols. W. C. Falkner and John McGuirk to collect their commands and report to him. If at all possible, Falkner was to get his regiment of Mississippi State Cavalry in position to keep Coon's column from crossing the Tallachatchie.

   News reaching  Slemons' headquarters on August 15 was all bad. First, he learned that on the previous day the Yazoo City Yankees, Winslow's brigade, had started for Lexington and Grenada. The Confederate commander at Carrollton was urged to have his scouts shadow this force. In addition, he would try to harass the Federals' advance by destroying bridges and bushwhacking. McGuirk, who had concentrated his regiment at Spring Dale, had plenty of information, all discouraging, for Slemons.

   The first report Slemons received from McGurk was that Coon's column had forded the Tallahatchie on the previous evening and was striking for Oxford. Several hours later, Scout Carmen rode into camp and reported that the Rocky Ford column (Coon's) and the Abbeville column (Wallace's) had occupied Oxford.

   In view of these developments, Slemons issued marching orders to his command. The colonel, accompanied by his main striking force, left Panola for Grenada at 2 p.m. The next day, the 16th, Slemons' troopers rode into Grenada. There, the colonel was joined by McGuirk's regiment. Slemons was disappointed to discover that his other detached commands (the 6th and 18th Mississippi Cavalry Battalion, Falkner's regiment, and the 2d Regiment Mississippi State Cavalry) were missing. All told, he had a force of just a little over 700 effectives with which to fend off the Yankee columns which were rapidly converging of Grenada from the north and the south.

   Slemons determined to use his under strength brigade to oppose the Federals who were driving down the Mississippi Central from Oxford, while Jackson's division handled the bluecoats who were pressing northward from Yazoo City.

THE GREAT RAILROAD RAID


By Edwin C. Bearss
Washington, D.C.

Edwin C. Bearss received his B.S. degree from Georgetown University, Washington D.C. and his M.A. degree from
Indiana university, Bloomington. At present he is team leader of the 19th and 20th Centuries Team, assigned to the Division
of History, National Park Service.
Part I of "The Great Railroad Raid" appeared in the fall issue of the Annals.

PART II

    Sunrise on August 16th found the Federals in the saddle. The 9th Illinois Mounted Infantry took the lead as Phillips' and Coon's commands headed southward from the Oxford area. By 9 o'clock Wallace's vanguard had overtaken the rear of Coon's brigade.
    When he reached the Yocona River, Phillips was disappointed to find the water deep and swift. Large quantities of debris were being swept downstream by the booming river and would constitute an additional hazard. Five prisoners and a good but small ferryboat were captured by the Yankees. When questioned by Phillips, the prisoners remarked that a wagon train had been ferried across the river about one hour before. Phillips threw four companies across the river. Accompanied by these men, Phillips drove ahead. The "flyin column" thundered into Water Valley at 11 a.m. and capture the train.

    At the cry, "Yankees are coming!" the teamsters had reined up their teams, leaped off their vehicles, and fled. Inspecting the train, Phillips found that he had captured six heavily loaded six mule wagons. Three of the wagons were burned, and the mules turned over to the quartermasters to replace animals which had broken down on the raid. The remaining wagons and teams were assigned to three of the Union units.

    Phillips and the men of the "flying column" were disappointed at not finding any of the rolling stock on the Water Valley spur. When questioned by the bluecoats, the civilians remarked that the engines and cars had been moved southward toward Grenada. Although he would liked to have pushed on, Phillips decided he should remain a Water Valley pending the arrival of the rest of his command.

    While waiting to cross the Yocona, Wallace sent patrols to scour the countryside near the crossing. One of these groups bagged two Confederates belonging to the 18th Mississippi Cavalry Battalion.

    An accident delayed the crossing of the Yocona by Wallace's brigade. The ferryboat, while taking across Wallace's prisoners, foundered. It took the Federals the better part of two hours to salvage the craft, consequently, the afternoon was almost spent before the last Yankee reached the south bank of the river. Pushing on, Wallace and his troopers rode into Water Valley at 5 p.m. Phillips told Wallace to take an hour's break to feed his horses and men.

    At 6 o'clock the bugles sounded. Phillips' and Coon's commands rode out of Water Valley via the Coffeeville road-- Coon's brigade had the lead. The officers and men fretted as billowing black clouds came rolling out of the southwest. Darkness soon enveloped the column. Rain began to beat down in torrents. One lightning flash followed another, there was a continual roll of thunder. Water was soon cascading down every ravine and hollow. "It would have been impossible for man or beast to have marched," Coon recalled, "but for the continual flash of lightning which kept us in the road a part of the time." Even so, a number of horsemen tumbled into water filled ditches. It was a source of amazement to the Major that none of his men was drowned.

    At midnight, the brigade reached the area north of Coffeeville, where a battle had taken place the previous December. Here, exasperated by his snail like progress, Coon called a halt, and decided to wait for the clouds to scatter, so that his column could benefit by the light from the moon and stars. After about an hour, it stopped raining and the clouds broke. "Boots and Saddles" sounded; the brigade pushed on. Before the troopers had ridden a mile, Phillips galloped up on a mud spattered horse. Since the various units of the expedition had become separated, Phillips had decided to call a halt. The advance, he told Coon, would be resumed in the morning.

    Before Wallace's troopers could finish feeding their mounts, the storm had commenced. Wallace, in view of the driving rain and the "pitch blackness of the night," decided that a march was "utterly out of the question." Orders were issued for the men to take shelter. It was daylight on August 17 before Wallace's brigade struck southward from Water Valley.

    The sun was peeping over the horizon as Coon's bluecoats swung back into their saddles. Followed closely by the 9th Illinois Mounted Infantry, coon's brigade entered Coffeeville. Several Confederates were captured and disarmed by the vanguard. Phillips called a short halt. After discussing the situation with his officers, he determined to press on without waiting for Wallace's brigade. A staff officer was sent pounding northward to tell Wallace to quicken his pace.

    Two miles south of Coffeeville on the Grenada road, Coon's advance surprised and overran a Rebel outpost. An embarrassed greyclad who said he belonged to Col. Robert McCulloch's 2d Missouri Cavalry was taken prisoner. Four miles beyond, Coon, who was riding at the head of his brigade, sighted a slowly approaching locomotive. Coon ordered out a patrol. The troopers were to try to get between the engine and Grenada and block the track. The trainmen, however, spotted the Federals as they were approaching the right of way. They threw the engine into reverse. In a futile effort to prevent the escape of the locomotive, the patrol opened fire at it with their carbines as it roared past.

    Meanwhile, Coon's men had sighted a car. When searched, it was found to be loaded with railroad equipment. Coon conjectured that the locomotive had been sent to recover this car.

    Near a mile post reading "8 miles to Grenada," the Federals encountered a strong force of Confederates, estimated by Phillips to number about 600. As the Confederates pulled back, they skirmished with the Union advance. Six miles north of Grenada, the Federals overran a spur on which were parked six locomotives and 20 cars. The Union advance had been so rapid that the Confederates had been unable to remove or destroy this valuable rolling stock. Phillips left a guard, the 3d Illinois, with the engines and cars, with orders to start the fires under the boilers and run the trains into Grenada.

    Driving the Confederates before them, the Federal vanguard closed to within four miles of Grenada. Here, the officers were taken aback by the sight of dense clouds of black smoke rolling up from the trees near the river. It was apparent that Rebel demolition teams were already at work. Phillips ordered the pace quickened. The column thundered forward at a gallop. As they neared the Yalobusha, it was apparent to the Federals that the Southerners had fired the two railroad bridges.

    By this time, the Union advance was within 1,300 yards of the river, Confederate resistance stiffened. Coon shouted for two battalions to dismount. With carbines in hand, the rugged troopers deployed on the run a battalion of the 3d Michigan Cavalry to the right and a battalion of the 9th Illinois Mounted Infantry to the left of the road. To guard against an ambush, Coon posted a company of "sabers" on each flank to reconnoiter the timber. Surging ahead on the double, the Federals hurled the Rebels back toward the Yalobusha.

    To try to check the onrushing Yankees, the cannoneers of the Quitman Light Artillery opened fire with a 6- and 10- pounder which they had unlimbered on the south side of the river. The shelling slowed, but failed to check, the bluecoats. Slemons took advantage of this respite to disengage his command. The Confederates crossed the river only moments before Coon's cheering bluecoats gained the north bank.

    At 2 p.m. Phillips was notified that Wallace's brigade was close a hand. Reports brought in by scouts indicated that the Rebels had massed most of their strength to cover the upper ferry. Three guns, one of them rifled, had been pinpointed. The Rebel guns were protected by an emplacement, while the supporting troops were sheltered by rifle pits. Orders were issued for the Federals to force their way across the Yalobusha. Coon's brigade was to attack the foe at the upper ferry; two of Wallace's mountain howitzers and three companies of the 9th Illinois Cavalry were to cooperate with Coon's column. While Coon demonstrated and kept the Rebels pinned down at the upper ferry, Wallace's brigade was to sweep to the right and effect a crossing at the ferry two miles below town.

   Covered by Coon's demonstration, Wallace's troopers beat their way through the woods. Just as Wallace's vanguard reached the bank of the river, a staff officer thundered up. The aide told Wallace he was to push into Grenada and destroy the rolling stock. When Wallace gave the word, the bugler sounded the charge. Wallace's troopers crossed the Yalobusha unopposed. As soon as the last of his men had gained the left bank, Wallace re-formed his column and closed in on Grenada from the west. Dashing into the town, Wallace's bluecoats surprised and disarmed about 600 butternuts.

    Phillips was pleased with the way the engagement was developing. Observing that the Rebels were abandoning their fortifications covering the upper ferry, Phillips called for Coon to take up the attack. A patrol from Coon's command had found a ferryboat moored to the north bank of the river. The boat was used to sneak across several dismounted companies. At the same time, one of Coon's mounted units moved forward. Covered by the fire of their comrades, the troopers drove their horses into the muddy Yalobusha. The crossing was effected with surprising ease. Slemons' Confederates evacuated Grenada and retired down the Mississippi Central Railroad.

    Two hundred men, led by Coon, entered Grenada at 3:30 p.m. Phillips realized that with the bridges destroyed it would be impossible to remove to Federal territory the vast amount of rolling stock in the Grenada yards. Orders were issued for Coon to organize demolition teams. These groups were to burn the railroad shops. Lieut. James H. Cardy of the 3d Michigan was told to count and report the number of engines and cars. Phillips now decided that there was no need to keep most of his command south of the Yalobusha. In accordance with instructions from the expedition commander, Wallace's troopers re-crossed the river and camped at Statham's Station. There, they were rejoined during the night by the 3d Illinois.

    Coon and his demolition men were amazed at the vast amount of rolling stock. The locomotives and cars were "so closely packed together as to make a small town of themselves."

    While a count was being made of the engines and cars, team of demolition experts set fire to the two depots, two machine shops and two large steam powered flour mills. Cardy, having completed his assignment, reported that the Federals had captured a tremendous amount of rolling stock in the Grenada yards-- 51 engines and about 500 cars of all kinds and descriptions: box, coaches, slippers, and flats. Ten of the flats were loaded with army wagons.

    Up to the time that his men had entered Grenada, Phillips had heard nothing of the whereabouts of Winslow's column. Phillips' uncertainty concerning the activity of Winslow's command increased. When questioned by the Federals, several of the inhabitants reported that the Yankees had captured a train at Durant and another at Vaiden. Other citizens said that shortly after the bluecoats had swept into Vaiden, Jackson's Rebel cavalry had recaptured the trains and scattered Winslow's  horsemen. Phillips didn't know which tale to believe. If Jackson had defeated Winslow, it wouldn't be long before the greyclads reached the Grenada area and reinforced Slemons. Phillips didn't feel that his command could cope with such a formidable Confederate force. Since the Yalobusha bridges had been burned, it would be impossible to run off the rolling stock. Orders were issued for Coon to begin destroying the locomotives and cars.

    While the demolition teams were setting fire to the rolling stock, another interesting report reached Phillips. A man told the colonel that a train of 100 wagons had left Grenada at West Point shortly before the Federals appeared. This train was said to be loaded with ordnance and commissary supplies. Phillips determined to pursue and capture the train in the morning.

    By sundown on August 17, Coon notified Phillips that his men had completed their work. One fun loving group fired up one of the locomotives. After releasing the throttle, the Federals leaped off, as the engine thundered southward. The ironhorse raced out of the yards, and traveled several miles before jumping the tracks. The fires set by the Federals roared through the yards. After raiding the corn cribs for forage, Coon's troopers re-crossed the Yalobusha and bivouacked.

    Winslow's vanguard entered Grenada at 9:30 p.m. Winslow, as senior officer, assumed charge of all the Union troops in the area.

*          *          *

      At daybreak on August 14, Winslow's officers formed and mustered their troopers. Evacuating Yazoo City, the Federal horsemen took the Lexington road. Winslow realized that his command would be called on to make hard marches, consequently, he held down the pace. On the other hand, the colonel knew that he would have to get the jump on the Confederates. Winslow therefore kept his men in the saddle until well after dark. The bluecoats, after having made 30 miles, camped for the night on Harland, Creek, eight miles southwest of Lexington.

     Winslow's column was on the road early on the 15th. By 8 o'clock the Federals occupied Lexington, meeting no resistance beyond the sullen glances of the citizens. Before pushing on, Winslow called for the commander of the 3d Iowa, Maj. John W. Noble. The major and his command were to remain at Lexington to procure rations, while Winslow led the remainder of the brigade eastward toward the Mississippi Central Railroad. After obtaining the desired supplies, the 3d Iowa would rejoin the main column.

    Marching by way of Castilian Springs, the Union horsemen thundered into Durant at noon. Unfortunately for the Confederates, a southbound engine with a number of cars had just rumbled into the station. After a patrol had cut the telegraph, Winslow sent for Capt. John H. Peters of the 4th Iowa. Peters was placed in charge of the train.

    Meantime, Winslow had learned from several of the inhabitants that another southbound train (an engine and 10 cars) had recently passed through Durant en route to Canton. The informants announced that Confederate working parties had just finished rebuilding the railroad bridge over the Big Black at Way's Bluff. (This bridge had been burned by the 4th Iowa on July 18, during the brief occupation of Canton)

    Peters decided to try to overtake this Train. The captain ordered a large detachment aboard the captured train. Peters and several of his officers climbed into the cab on the  locomotive. At a word from Peters, the engineer put the train into motion. After having proceeded five miles, they were unable to see any signs of the first train. Peters had the engineer stop the locomotive. To check a pursuit by the Canton Confederates, Peters decided to destroy the bridge across Box Creek. A demolition team was organized and the railroad bridge burned. As soon as the bridge was burning fiercely, the blueclads re-boarded the cars. Peters ordered the engineer to throw his engine into reverse; the train returned to Durant.

    The 3d Iowa by this time had arrived from Lexington with several wagon loads of rations and forage. As soon as Noble and Peters had reported, Winslow again turned the brigade out. Peters' detachment would remain in charge of the captured train. Any additional locomotives and rolling stock encountered as the column pushed up the Mississippi Central toward Grenada would also be turned over to Peters.

    It was 6 p.m. on the 15th when the raiders rode out of Durant. The train with Peters' detachment kept pace with the column. A five-hour march brought the Unionist to West. Here, the Yankees discovered 12 engines and about 50 cars. These were turned over to Peters' command. To run the trains, it was necessary to call for volunteers from the brigade who had railroading experience. While the volunteers were being organized into crews, it started to rain. Many years afterward, one of the troopers recalled:
    To this day the men who were in that storm speak of it as a marvel in nature. The terrific, continuous crashing of thunder, the incessant, fearful flashing of lightning on all sides, the torrents of falling water, and the dense darkness in the intervals of blinding light exceeded anything they have ever known.

    Winslow had planned to march all night. The storm necessitated a change in plans. The order to halt went out and the troopers camped for the night on Jordan Creek.

    On the morning of the 16th, the captured rolling stock (now numbering 13 engines and 60 cars) was made up into trains. It was 5 p.m. before the last train had been manned and chugged out of the West yards. The need to detach personnel to man the trains created a problem. Whenever a cavalryman was assigned to one of the trains, it left a horse in the column to be cared for by one of his comrades. Before leaving West, Winslow had a demolition team destroy the bridge across Jordan Creek. In case the Federals were compelled to abandon the rolling stock, the colonel didn't want the Confederates to recover the engines and cars and run them into Canton.

    Since he had lost so much time as West, Winslow determined to make a night march. Darkness had blanketed the area when the head of the column entered Vaiden. Winslow directed Peters to take the trains to Winona, then the Federal horsemen pushed on. Meanwhile, a demolition team had set fire to the railroad bridge spanning Peachahala Creek.

    The raiders reached Winona at daybreak on the 17th. Winslow was distressed to discover that a Confederate patrol had burned the bridge across a small creek just north of town. Unless the Yankees rebuilt the structure, it would be impossible to take the captured trains into Grenada. In addition, Winslow's scouts, who had been questioning the townspeople, were told that there was a strong force of Confederates at Grenada.

    To make matters worse, the Yankees were unable to pick up any information regarding the Union column which was supposed to be pushing southward from the Tennessee border. Winslow realized that if the Confederates were able to hold Grenada, not only would he lose the captured trains, but his raiding column would be in deadly peril. Winslow decided to leave the rolling stock at Winona and press on to take Grenada. After occupying Grenada, and while awaiting the arrival of the cooperating column, he would send a detachment to repair the bridge across the creek north of Winona and bring up the trains.

    To hinder the Confederates' efforts to remove the rolling stock in case they reached it first, Winslow had his men wreck the bridges across two small tributaries of Hays Creek, south of Winona. As soon as Peters' troopers had rejoined their units, the march was resumed. Spearheaded by the 3d Iowa Cavalry, the Yankees occupied Duck Hill at 11 a.m., where they found four engines and 20 cars.

    Since many of the horses were badly jaded, Winslow purposely held down the pace of the march. A four-hour halt was made on Jackson Creek, while the troopers rested and fed their mounts. At 3 p.m. the column again moved off.

    Before proceeding very far, the 3d Iowa established contact with a Confederate patrol. These Confederates belonged to Slemons command. At the same time, Rebel partisans were sighted hovering on the flanks and rear of the brigade. This discouraged straggling, and the officers experienced little difficulty in keeping their men closed up.

    Skirmishing briskly with Slemons' patrols, the 3d Iowa pushed rapidly on. Many of the Union officers were disturbed to notice that when forced to give ground, the Southerners always retired up the Grenada road. The Federals began to wonder if perhaps the Confederates had concentrated a sufficient force to defend the town. If the Southerners could hold Grenada. the Yankees realized they would probably prevent the junction of the two Union columns. As the 3d Iowa approached Payne's plantation, five miles south of Grenada, these fears seemed justified. The blueclad scouts reported that the Rebels had massed a strong force behind Berry Creek. Suddenly, the greyclads abandoned their strong position and moved off toward the east.

    After the Confederates' withdrawal, the column pushed rapidly on. As they approached Grenada, the Federals observed several large fires. Entering the town, Winslow was hailed by Phillips.

                                                                                                      *          *          *

    After being briefed by Phillips, Winslow countermanded the orders to burn the rolling stock. Winslow wanted to wait until morning, when he would make a personal investigation into the possibility of repairing the Yalobusha bridges. Winslow's troopers were set to work putting out the fires. It was fortunate for the townspeople that Winslow arrived when he did, because the fires set by Coon's men were spreading rapidly. Already, tow blocks of private buildings had been burned. Making the transition from cavalrymen to fire fighters, Winslow's troopers prevented the spread of the "conflagration which threatened to destroy the town."

    Since both his and Phillips' commands were short of rations,  Winslow determined to remain at Grenada 24 hours to allow his commissary and quartermaster people to procure supplies. Except for the provost guard (the 3d Iowa Cavalry), the outposts, and the commissary detail, Winslow crossed his brigade to the north side of the Yalobusha early on the 18th.

    During the day, Winslow and his staff examined the bridges and the captured rolling stock. The colonel was disappointed to see that the bridges had been so badly damaged that it would take more time than he had to spare to repair them. A team was put to work tabulating the damage to the locomotives and cars in the Grenada yards. Since time was becoming critical, Winslow decided against putting the demolition teams back to work. He felt certain that Jackson's troopers would soon overtake them, and it was reported that Brig. Gen. Daniel Duggles had reached the Panola area from northeast Mississippi with a strong force of cavalry and was waiting to intercept the Federals as they marched for Memphis. Phillips protested that the Rebels would put many of these engines and cars back into operation, and with the rolling stock abandoned by Winslow's troopers at Winona soon have the means of shipping the great quantities of corn and wheat that had been grown in north Mississippi during the year. He argued that "these engines and cars will be of immense benefit to our enemies." Winslow, however, disagreed, and Phillips was overruled.

    Inside of 30 hours, the men and horses had caught their second wind; forage and food had been collected and issued to the units by the quartermaster people; while the demolition teams had completed their work. Long before daybreak on August 19, the buglers had sounded reveille and the men had been mustered and fed. The column moved out at 4:30 a.m. taking the Panola road; Wallace's brigade had the lead

*        *         *

  The information reaching the Federals that the Texas Cavalry Brigade led by Brig. Gen. John W. Whitfield had been sent in pursuit of Winslow's column was correct. Winslow's troopers, however, were able to steal a march on the hard-riding Texans. Leaving Canton late on August 14, the Texans entered Durant the next night. There, they were drenched by the same storm that delayed Winslow's bluecoats at West, nine miles to the northeast. To escape the rain the officers dismissed their troopers. "to hunt shelter in the dark" as best they could. The Texans "had a great time getting into vacant houses, under sheds, awnings, in stables or any available place" that they might protect their ammunition from the elements.

    It was late the next morning, the 16th, before Whitfield resumed the chase. At Old Shongolo, near Vaiden, the ladies had learned that the Texans were coming. They accordingly "prepared a splendid picnic dinner" for them. Since time was all important, Whitfield refused to call a halt. Undaunted, the ladies took position by the side of the road with trays "loaded with chicken, ham, biscuit, cake, pies, and other tempting viands." As the mud-spattered Texans rode along, they helped themselves.

    Whitfield's troopers reached Winona on the 17th, where they recovered the 13 engines and 60 cars which the destruction of the bridge had compelled Winslow's bluecoats to abandon. After detailing a force to guard the rolling stock, Whitfield pushed on. the morning of the 18th, found the Texans camped at Duck Hill, 12 miles south of Grenada.

    By the 17th the situation had become so critical that Johnston was compelled to intervene. A telegram was sent to Ruggles, the Confederate commander in northeastern Mississippi. Ruggles was informed that the Yankees had crossed the Tallahatchie and were sweeping down the Mississippi Central toward Grenada. At the same time, another Federal column had advanced out of Yazoo City, reached Durant on the Mississippi Central and was driving northward toward a junction with the "first-named expedition."
    Ruggles was to "give all the aid" in his power to the Confederate forces opposing these Union thrusts. ( This is an excellent example of the difficulties the Civil War soldiers had with communications.) the information on which Johnston based his dispatch to Ruggles was 48 hours old.

    Johnston, on the preceding day, had made an administrative change that had long been needed in Mississippi. Stephen D. Lee (who had been declared exchanged following his capture at Vicksburg) was promoted to major general and named to command all Confederate cavalry in Mississippi. Formally assuming his new tasks, Lee issued orders at jackson on August 18.

    Lee and Johnston felt certain that the Federals, after destroying the rolling stock at Grenada, would strike for Columbus. Consequently, Lee made plans to frustrate such a thrust. Reaching Canton, Lee had Jackson recall Brig. Gen. George B. Cosby's brigade, which was watching the crossings of the Big Black east of Vicksburg. On the morning of the 21st, Lee rode out of Canton at the head of 1,300 rugged troopers. Lee directed his march toward Bankston.

    Before leaving Canton, Lee had issued orders for J. R. Chalmers (who in view of the crisis had rushed back to his command), Whitfield and Brig. Gen. Samuel W. Ferguson (Ferguson commanded Ruggles' cavalry) to rendezvous with him at Bankston.

    Meanwhile, Johnston had received a message from Chalmers. This dispatch had been sent on August 18 from a point 20 miles east of Grenada. Chalmers reported that on the evening of the 17th, Slemons' small command had been compelled to evacuate Grenada.
    Soon after leaving Canton, Lee received a dispatch from Chalmers at Bellefontaine reporting that the Federals had evacuated Grenada on the morning of the 19th and were retiring up the Mississippi and Tennessee Railroad toward memphis. The first Confederates to re-enter Grenada reported most of the rolling-stock and one-fourth of the town burned. In view of this development, Lee telegraphed Ruggles to recall Ferguson, who had taken position at Okalona to guard against a Union thrust toward the Mobile and Ohio Railroad via Houston or Pontotoc. Chalmers was to reoccupy the positions abandoned by his command covering the line of the Tallahatchie. As soon as he reached Grenada from Bellefontaine, Chalmers' was to see that the telegraph line linking Grenada and Canton was repaired.

    A trooper in the 4th Iowa recalled that the march northward was "slower than it had been south of Grenada. The country was desolate. It had been harassed and swept  by hostile armies for more than a year. Along the principal roads it was as if one were following the path of a great fire."
 
    The Federals passed through Oakland during the day. After crossing the Yocona, Winslow called a halt and the column camped. Winslow, like most military commanders, rotated his lead unit. On the 20th, the 9th Illinois Mounted Infantry had the advance. Although Phillips' men kept a sharp watch no armed Rebels were seen until the vanguard approached the Tallahatchie at Panola. It was feared by many of the officers that the Confederates would mass a strong force to dispute their crossing. Shots were exchanged with several partisans as the yankees prepared to cross. Badly outnumbered, the guerrillas withdrew. By 4:30 p.m. Winslow's rear guard had ferried the Tallahatchie. Pushing on, the Federals camped for the night on either side of the Memphis road, six miles north of the river.

    When the column moved out on the morning of August 21, Wallace's brigade was in the van. About a mile north of a Dr. Wallace's plantation, the advance guard came to a fork in the road. here, the command divided. Winslow's brigade continued up the Memphis road; Wallace's, Coon's, and Phillips' units turned into the Bucksnort road. Soon after the column had divided, Wallace, having been notified that provisions were getting short in his brigade, sent out foragers.

    Phillips' command spent the night at Bucksnort. Before morning, all of the foraging parties but one--Lieut. Leander L. Shattuck's had returned. On the 22nd the Federals pushed on to Wall Hill. Once again, the force divided. Wallace's brigade took the Byhalia road, Coon's and Phillips' the one to Holly Springs.
    Wallace drove his men hard. By nightfall they had returned to the Union lines--the 3d and 4th Illinois going into camp at Collierville and the 9th Illinois at Germantown. Shortly after reaching his base, Wallace received bad news. A bedraggled member of Shattuck's 15 man detachment was brought to his headquarters. The man explained that as the patrol was preparing to ford the Coldwater, it had been attacked by Confederate partisans and all the men but him had been killed or captured.

    Phillips' regiment and Coon's brigade rode together as far as Lamar. At that point Phillips directed Coon to return to his camp at La Grange. marching via Spring Hill and Saulsbury, Phillips and the troopers of his 9th Illinois Mounted Infantry entered Pocahontas at 9 a.m. on August 23, having been absent from their base for 10 days. Coon's troopers reached their La Grange camp about the same hour.
    Unlike the other commands, Winslow's ran into some excitement. As the column approached the Coldwater on the afternoon of the 21st, the scouts reported that Confederates were posted on the north bank of the river and prepared to dispute the crossing. Winslow called for Noble. With 75 picked men of the 3d Iowa, Noble was to make a demonstration to see if he could pin down the Rebels. At the same time, Maj. James Farnan of the 5th Illinois would take five companies (three form his regiment and two from the 3d Iowa) and ford the river one-half mile below the crossing to take the Rebels from the rear.

    Noble and Farnan moved to carry out Winslow's orders. Dismounting, Noble and his Iowans advanced and took cover in the fallen timber along the south bank of the Coldwater. Protected by the timber, the Iowans blazed away at the Rebels on the opposite side. Unfortunately for Winslow's plan, Farnan's men made a lot of noise as they forded the river, alerting the Confederates. Out numbered and not wishing to be trapped, the greyclads beat a hasty retreat. All this time, Rebel snipers who had infiltrated the woods south of the river were banging away at Winslow's rear guard. Since they were firing at extreme ranges, the Southerners, except for wounding several horses, did no damage.

    Following the Rebels' retreat, the bluecoats repaired the ferryboat which the foe had scuttled. Winslow lost not time in getting his brigade to the north side of the river. A detachment was sent in pursuit of the Confederates, but they had had too big a head start. The brigade camped the night of the 21st on high ground four miles north of the Coldwater. When he checked the rolls, Winslow learned that four of Noble's men had been wounded in the day's engagement.

    The next morning (August 22), the brigade resumed the march. Winslow purposely held down the pace. Long halts were made to rest the weary men and animals. Nightfall found the troopers camped on Crane Creek, four miles from Memphis. The next day the brigade entered Memphis having ridden 265 miles since leaving the Big Black, 13 days before.

    Grant was in Memphis when Winslow's column arrived. Winslow reported to him for orders, giving him a terse account of the great railroad raid. Grant was impressed, and directed that "the command return to Vicksburg by steamboats, with leave to 'take it easy'." On the evening of August 28 Winslow was notified that the transports were ready. The next morning, the brigade marched to the levee and embarked. All the transports except the madison tied up at Vicksburg on the last day of August. Before nightfall, the troopers were back in their camp at Flowers' plantation. The Madison, with several companies of the 4th Iowa aboard, had grounded; it was September 1 before her passengers rejoined their comrades on the Big Black.

*         *        *

     The "Great Railroad Raid" had demonstrated that for the time being Union cavalry columns could go anywhere they wished in the section of Mississippi, west of the Pearl River. Although the converging columns were unable to communicate, the Federal officers had regulated their movements so that on almost every occasion they were able to rendezvous as scheduled. Of equal importance was the ability of the Union cavalry to carry out its mission and escape before the Confederates could organize an effective pursuit. The "Great Railroad Raid," along with Col. Benjamin H. Grierson's April sweep through Mississippi, proved that in the Mississippi Valley. Federal cavalry had reached a point in efficiency where it was equal, if not superior, to the Rebel horsemen. At approximately the same time in the East, the battle of Brandy Station and cavalry operations in the Gettysburg Campaign underscored this development.

    To cope with the situation in Mississippi, Johnston named Lee to command all Confederate cavalry in the Department of Mississippi and East Louisiana. While this decision came too late to affect the success of the "Great Railroad Raid," it proved to be a wise move for the Confederates. With one man, rather than several, in charge of their mounted arms in the Mississippi theater of operations, the Rebels were better able to cope with future Union raids.

    Although the Federals had failed to bring away the locomotives and rolling stock, they had struck the deteriorating rail system of the Confederacy a terrible blow. Between them, Winslow's and Phillips' raiders had destroyed 34 locomotives and 172 cars (passenger, box, and flat). It might have been worse, however. The destruction of the bridge across the creek north of Winona compelled Winslow to abandon 13 engines and 59 cars at Winona. Four engines and 20 cars were left at Duck Hill. As a further blow against the Confederate economy, the Yankees arrested and brought 25 railroad engineers and mechanics to Memphis with them.

Inseparably connected with the history of the operations of the Iowa troops who were
never mustered into the service of the United States, but who performed service of
inestimable value on the southern border of the State, is the record of those companies
composed of men whose homes were constantly in danger in the early days of the War of
the Rebellion. Living as they did in the counties bordering upon the State of Missouri,
they were compelled to organize far self protection. Rumors which proved to be well
founded—that armed bodies of citizens of the slave holding State of Missouri were being
formed for the purpose of invading the State of Iowa, kept the inhabitants of those border
counties in a constant state of excitement and apprehension. Under the direction and
command of Lieutenant Colonel John Edwards, Aide Camp to Governor Kirkwood, the
various companies, which had been hastily organized, were concentrated into camps, and
were held in readiness to move promptly across the border, and to resist any attempt of
the rebel forces to invade the State of Iowa and plunder the homes of her citizens. The
prompt and determined action thus taken undoubtedly saved the people of that part of the
State from the horrors of invasion.
In the meantime, the Union men in the State of Missouri were placed in a most
desperate situation. They were engaged in a fierce and relentless war with their rebel
neighbors. They were being driven from their homes, and their property confiscated for
the use of the rebel army They had appealed to their loyal neighbors across the border in
Iowa to aid them in their fight for existence, and they did not appeal in vain. In his report
to the Governor, (dated at Pleasant Plains, Iowa, July 28, 1861,) Colonel Edwards states
that he had sent to Keokuk and Burlington for two pieces of artillery, and that he was
about to start with the forces under his command to reinforce the troops under Captain W.
C. Drake of Corydon. then stationed at Allenville, on the border of Ringgold County,
Iowa, with the purpose of moving across the line to the support of the loyal Missourians,
under Colonel Cranor. The following brief extracts, from the report of Colonel Edwards,
will serve to show the condition of affairs on the southern border at that time:
. . . . . Captain Cranor, of Gentry County, Mo., had sent to Captain Drake for
assistance, as the rebels were fortified on Grand River, reported to be from eight to
twelve hundred strong, with three pieces of artillery. Colonel Cranor had under his
command about three hundred Union Missouri men, badly armed, and over one hundred
Iowans who had volunteered under him. I dispatched a messenger to the various armed
companies within reach, ordering them to march and concentrate at Allenville,
immediately, also at Chariton. I also sent a messenger to Captain Drake to ascertain more
minutely the facts as to the condition of affairs in his vicinity. I started for Captain
Drake's camp, but was met twenty five miles this side by the returning messengers whom
I had sent the day before. They confirmed the intelligence brought me the day previous.

  

On reaching Captain Drake's camp, I ascertained that messengers had just arrived from
2
Colonel Cranor's command, conveying the information that the belligerents—then within
four miles of each other—had made a treaty of peace. . .
The "treaty of peace" referred to proved to be but a hollow mockery It was simply a
temporary truce, which served to prevent the armed forces from becoming engaged in
battle at that time, but did not put au end to the depredations to which the property of
Union citizens was subjected. Continuing his report, Colonel Edwards says:
. . . . . The secessionists in that region are more bold than before, and have recommenced
mustering under the military laws of the State, which are obnoxious to the Union men
and to which they will not submit. The Union men are indignant and mortified at the
terms of' the treaty. Many have become disheartened—have abandoned their homes and
their crops, and are leaving the State. The same feelings have taken hold of many families
on the border, in Iowa I have seen families who, abandoning everything to the fates, have
returned to friends in other states. The loyal men of both States, separated merely by an
imaginary line, have the same sympathies in a common cause. When the rebels of
Missouri seek to injure the property and destroy the lives of Union men of that State,
appeals for aid are made to friends and neighbors in Iowa nor do they appeal in vain. The
arming and military parades made by our companies along the border, at most points
have produced salutary effects. It strengthens and inspires the Union men of Missouri,
and carries over to them the neutrals and a great many terror stricken secessionists. At
least fifteen hundred citizens of Iowa left their harvest fields and families and rushed into
Missouri to the relief of the Union men. These citizens were armed in every conceivable
manner, and were without officers, system or drill. . . . . The loyal men of Missouri ex
press their gratitude to the people of Iowa, for their timely aid and support on every
trying occasion, everything they possessed was cheerfully offered free of charge, to
render our citizens as comfortable as possible. I know several gentlemen who not only
fed hundreds of Iowa citizens and their horses, daily, for a week at a time, but spent
hundreds of dollars—sometimes their last dollar—in this benevolent manner. On account
of the excitement and constant alarm along the border, our citizens lost much valuable
time, by frequent hurrying to arms; therefore a vast amount of grain was lost on the
fields....
Realizing the necessity of maintaining a permanent force of State troops along the
southern border, Colonel Edwards exercised the authority given him by the Governor,
and proceeded to thoroughly organize the companies, and to bring them up to a good
state of efficiency in drill and discipline. In his official report he makes the following
statement, showing the conditions then existing, and his efforts to establish a military
system, under which more prompt and effective service could be rendered:
In view of apprehended outbreaks, sooner or later, on the borders of Ringgold and
Taylor Counties, I have ordered into camp at this place those companies which have
received marching orders, and are already on the way to the scene of difficulty. For the
reasons before stated, coupled with the news of our late reverses at Manassas Junction,
the rebels here and elsewhere will be inspired with new vigor. I came into camp last night
with three companies; the rest will follow today` and tomorrow. I have commenced
systematizing every department of the service, placing the most competent men in the
various positions. The strictest discipline will be adopted and drill performed as in the
United States service. Every arrangement necessary for the comfort and, health of the
3
soldiers will be carried out. The most rigid economy will be practiced, and an exact
account rendered of every cent of expense incurred. The times are such that the people
demand that something be done at once and effectively. We are so situated on the border
that, when we are called upon to act, we must act at once. Heretofore we have had no
system, and if called into action our men were liable to be cut oft by the enemy and by
one another. . . . . I will keep out scouts for the next ten days, In the vicinity where danger
will be most likely to occur. I will be ready to strike at a moment's notice. . . . . The
principal design of the secessionists in the northern part of the State of Missouri is to
keep up the excitement there as much as possible, in order to divert attention from
Governor Jackson's operations in the southern part of the State. They will do all in their
power to harass Union men in both States. . . . .
About the time these militia organizations were being perfected—as shown in the
foregoing extract—the Fourth Regiment of Iowa Volunteer Infantry was in rendezvous at
Council Bluffs, and, in accordance with instructions from Governor Kirkwood, Colonel
Grenville M. Dodge marched with eight companies of his regiment, for the purpose of co
operating with the Iowa Militia in the defense of the border counties, and, if found
necessary, to cross the line into Missouri and reinforce the loyal Missourians,
commanded by Colonel Cranor. In his official report to the Governor, Colonel Dodge
states, that he proceeded with his command to a point thirteen miles north of the Missouri
line, where he was met by his scout—Sergeant Teal—who had been in the rebel camp
near Gentryville, Mo., and found them about six hundred strong, occupying a good
position, but poorly armed and equipped. The Sergeant confirmed the report of the truce
(or compromise), and stated that the rebels had apparently disbanded and returned to their
homes. At the close of his report, Colonel Dodge made the following statement:
There is no doubt but great excitement exists on both sides of the line. My scout
canvassed pretty thoroughly all the counties of northwest Missouri, and found that the
rebels of that section were fearing an invasion from Iowa equally as much as the people
of southern Iowa were from Missouri. The rebel camp was made chiefly for the purpose
of drilling their forces, in order that when Jackson came (Which was confidently
anticipated), they might be ready to assist him in driving the Union men out of North
Missouri. Gentry and Nodoway Counties are now nearly vacant; crops are neglected and
farms for miles deserted. On breaking up their camp but very few— say one hundred
eighty—appeared to ratify the compromise, the balance scattering, sinking their field
pieces in the river, and burying their small arms. I am fully persuaded that arms
distributed in our border counties, to at least one company in each county, will render
everything safe, as the Union forces in North Missouri are now stronger than the rebels.
Subsequent events proved that the fear of the rebels of northwest Missouri, of an
invasion from Iowa, was well founded. The First Regiment, Western Division, Iowa
Volunteer Militia, under command of Colonel John R. Morledge, made three expeditions
into the State of Missouri, the last of which extended to the city of St. Joseph, which was
evacuated 'by the rebel forces upon the approach of the Union troops. Colonel Morledge,
in his official report to Governor Kirkwood, gives a detailed account of these expeditions,
in the last of which five or six of the enemy were killed, and two rebel flags and many
prisoners were captured. During the progress of the last expedition, the number of Union
troops was constantly augmented by the accession of loyal citizens of Missouri, who had
4
joined the column at different points along the line of march and, upon arriving at St.
Joseph, the number had increased to four thousand. The rebel forces retreated in the
direction of Lexington, and subsequently joined the rebel army under command of
General Price. At the conclusion of his report, Colonel Morledge says:
St. Joseph looked desolate, and as though she had been despoiled of all her goods.
Whole blocks of business houses were closed up, many of which had been broken open
and robbed of all or nearly all their contents, by the rebels in their flight through the city
two days before.
Colonel Morledge remained in camp at St. Joseph for three days, and then returned
with his regiment to Iowa.
Adjutant General N. B Baker, in his report, published in 1863, (Vol. 1, page xv,)says:
The General Assembly at the Extra Session, 1862, with almost entire unanimity
directed the organization of the Northern and Southern Border Brigades. As these
organizations are of great interest to the State, I have inserted in the Appendix their
rosters—Northern marked (B), and Southern marked (C). These rosters show that the
number of men enlisted in the Northern Border Brigade was two hundred fifty, and in the
Southern Border Brigade seven hundred ninety four. In the Appendix, marked (K), will
be found reports of Colonels Edwards, Dodge and Morledge, relating to the difficulties
on the southern border, in 1861, and the Governor's instructions in relation to the
organization of the Southern Border Brigade, in 1862.
The following order was issued by Adjutant General Baker, soon after the passage of
the act by the General Assembly:
ADJUTANT GENERAL'S OFFICE,
DAVENPORT, Oct. 8, 1862.
General Orders No. 98: Under the law of the last session of the General Assembly,
Chapter 17, entitled an Act to provide for the better protection of the southern border of
this State, the Governor has ordered that four battalions of troops, for the purpose
indicated in said law, be forthwith raised, to be numbered and located as follows:
First Battalion to be composed of troops raised in the counties of Lee and Van Buren.
Second Battalion will be composed of troops from the counties of Wapello, Davis and
Appanoose.
Third Battalion will be composed of troops from the counties of Wayne, Decatur and
Ringgold.
Fourth Battalion will be composed of troops from the counties of Taylor, Page and
Fremont.
These battalions will constitute the Southern Border Brigade. The companies
composing these battalions will be designated by this Department alone.
By order of Commander chief.
N. B. BAKER, Adjutant General of Iowa.
Reference has been made—in the foregoing part of this sketch—to the reports alluded
to by Adjutant General Baker, embracing the period from the commencement of the
5
troubles on the southern border to the date of the organization of the Southern Border
Brigade. It will be noted that, in his letter of instructions in relation to that organization,
Governor Kirkwood practically adopted the suggestions made by Colonel Grenville M.
Dodge, in the concluding portion of his report, heretofore quoted in this sketch. The letter
gives a clear view of the conditions then existing in that part of the state, and is, therefore,
here quoted in full, as follows:
EXECUTIVE OFFICE, Iowa, Sept. 11, 1862.
W. W. THOMAS,
CORYDON, Wayne Co., Iowa.
SIR: A law has passed the. General Assembly authorizing the organization in your
county, and the other border counties, of a company of men for home defense against
guerrilla bands from Missouri. The law will soon be published, and you will be able to
see its provisions and learn its objects. I desire you 'o enlist the company for your county.
I am informed that in some of the border counties there are men whose loyalty is
doubtful, and whose sympathies are with the rebels. Such men must not be admitted into
the company. I will not, if I can avoid it, be Instrumental in placing the public arms in the
hands of any man whose devotion to the Government in this hour of peril is doubtful I do
not mean by this that none but Republicans shall be enlisted. I only mean just what I say,
that your company must consist of open, known, unconditional supporters of the
Government and of the Union, and I hold you responsible, if you accept this service, that
you enlist none others. Your company can consist of not less than eighty, nor more than
one hundred, men, all told. When you have enlisted the minimum number, you will call
the men together and have them elect one Captain and one First Lieutenant, and report
the names to the Adjutant General who will issue commissions. The men are enlisted to
act as mounted men, when their services may be needed, and each man must furnish his
own horse, saddle, bridle, blankets and clothing. It is not intended these men should all be
on constant service. A few men from each company will daily act as scouts, and the
others are to be at home, holding themselves as minute men. Please also report to me at
Iowa City your action in this matter. I trust you will feel It to be your duty to do this
work, and to do it firmly and thoroughly. It is for the defense of your own county, and the
service should be promptly performed. If, for any reason, you cannot act in this matter,
please hand this authority, indorsed by you, to some man who will do it in the manner
herein set forth and report his name and post office address to me immediately.
Very respectfully,
SAMUEL J. KIRKWOOD.
Similar letters were addressed to James H. Summers, Decatur City, Decatur County;
Charles W. Lowrie, Keokuk, Lee County; John R. Morledge, Clarinda, Page County; E.
S. Hedges, Sydney, Fremont County; D. W. Dixon, Ottumwa, Wapello County; R. A.
Moser, Lexington, Taylor County; Joseph Dickey, Farmington, Van Buren County; H.
Tannehill, Centerville, Appanoose County, H. B. Horn, Bloomfield, Davis County;
Thomas Ross, Mount Ayr, Ringgold County
Supplementing the foregoing instructions of the Governor, Adjutant General Baker,
under date of October 14, 1862, issued an order which reads as follows:
6
In order that the Southern Border Brigade shall not be an unnecessary expense to the
State, it is directed that not more than ten men shall be detailed for special service from
any company in any battalion, unless there be an actual invasion, and then the additional
force must be ordered out by the Major of the battalion; and in every case full report must
be made to the Governor, with a statement of the facts upon which the additional force
was ordered into the field, and the officer making the order will be held responsible for
the correctness of his statements and actions. 6
The wisdom of the action taken by the Governor, ill thus creating all efficient and
adequately strong force upon the southern borders of the State, was subsequently
demonstrated most fully by the better conditions which existed in that vicinity, from the
time the organization was established until the close of the war It is true that the
inhabitants of that part of the State did not at any time, while the great struggle was going
on, enjoy the feeling of complete immunity from danger which was held by those whose
homes were farther away from the scene of strife. They had—in addition to contributing
their full quota to the regiments at the front—to maintain the militia organizations, from
their own numbers, and for their own protection. The burdens of war therefore rested
more heavily upon the people of those border counties than upon those who lived in the
interior of the State.
The report made by Colonel Edwards—at the special request of General Baker—
gives such a complete summary of the operations of the Iowa State troops On the
southern border and in the State of Missouri, that the compiler deems its quotation
appropriate to the completion of this historical sketch. It is therefore quoted in full, as
follows:
SPRINGFIELD, Mo., December 24, 1862.
N. B. BAKER, Adjutant General, State of Iowa.
SIR: In compliance with your request of the 7th inst., to furnish you a brief statement
of the expedition under my command, which marched into the State of Missouri during
the month of September, 1861, I have the honor to report that, as Aide-de Camp to his
Excellency. Governor Kirkwood, I had charge of the border between the States of Iowa
and Missouri, from the east line of Appanoose County to the west line of Taylor County.
The Civil War, which then convulsed the people of Missouri, raged with great violence in
the northern Part of the State, loyalists and rebels striving for the ascendancy. The bitter
feelings engendered between them often broke out in open hostilities, which more or less
involved the peace and security of the citizens of Iowa residing near the border. The
rebels, acting on the offensive, were the first to arm and unite themselves into bands, to
compel the loyalists either to unite with them or take the other alternative of leaving the
State; hence thousands, abandoning their homes, fled to Iowa for refuge. During the
month of August, Colonel Patten of Gentry, and Colonel Sanders of Andrew County,
Mo., were engaged in organizing large bands of rebels in the northern part of that State,
near the Iowa line, with the threatened intention of invading Iowa, to supply their
commands with horses, principally then to unite their forces under General Sterling Price,
at that time advancing from Arkansas upon Lexington, Mo. BY a previous understanding
between Governor Kirkwood and General Pope, who was at that time in command of
northern Missouri, I was authorized, in case of any emergency that might arise, to march
such of the troops of Iowa, as had been assigned to me, into Missouri, to assist the
7
struggling loyal citizens of that State, and, if possible, to Prevent an invasion by the
rebels into Iowa.
If fighting had to be done, it was preferable to do it in Missouri, where the trouble
commenced, and to spare our citizens the consequences of an invasion by the enemy. I
was further ordered on arriving at the line, to report to the commanding General I did so,
and my command, while I remained in the State of Missouri, were received as Federal
soldiers. Before I called out the troops under my command, however; a large number of
citizens on the border, on both sides of the line, advised me of the existing state of things;
also Colonel Cranor, commanding the Union forces of Gentry County, Mo. At the
numerous and urgent requests of these persons, and after dispatching messengers to the
scene of difficulty, and satisfying myself as to the truth of the statements made to me, I
ordered out all the troops I could collect and arm—in all between seven and eight
hundred—requiring them to rendezvous at Allenville, near the line. Without camp
equipage or commissary stores, without any previous preparation, in less than one week's
time for organization, I had put my expedition on the march from Allenville. At that time
at least three hundred loyal families of Missouri had been driven out of that State, and
were then encamped on the prairies of Iowa. I found the whole country in a state of great
excitement; no business on either side of the line was being prosecuted; a large number of
families in Iowa had abandoned their crops in harvest time, and fled Into the interior of
the State for safety. A band of rebels, numbering some twelve hundred, were fortified in a
bend of Grand River, about twenty-five miles from the line; several other bands were at
other points near by. I pushed my command on rapidly, when the rebels commenced
retreating, the different bands uniting before reaching St. Joseph, Mo. Before reaching St.
Joseph, I formed a junction with Colonel Cranor, when we were ordered by General Pope
to advance rapidly on that place, the rebels having possession of the city and being
engaged in plundering the citizens. It is estimated that they took seventy five thousand
dollars worth of goods from the loyal citizens of that city.
At the time of my arrival at St. Joseph, there were no Federal forces at that post, or on
the whole line of the Hannibal and St. Joseph Railroad. I was ordered to proceed to
Chillicothe, leaving three hundred of my men at St. Joseph to garrison that post. While I
was at Chillicothe, the surrender of Lexington, under Colonel Mulligan, took place. Mine
were the nearest Union forces to him at the time, and I had but four hundred and fifty
men. After the surrender of Colonel Mulligan, the rebel General Raines advanced upon
Chillicothe with four thousand cavalry and one section of a battery, his pickets being
within fifteen miles of Chillicothe, while Lewis Best, a noted rebel, had a band of three
hundred, ten miles north of the post, to cut off my retreat. I telegraphed to General
Fremont for reinforcements (the telegraph wire west of me being cut). He responded that
I should be reinforced in the morning with one regiment. A repel in the office, named
Jones, looking over the shoulder of the operation, thought it read ten regiments. Mounting
his horse, he rode to the camp of General Raines. whom he informed of the contents of
the telegram. It caused that General to retreat to Lexington, which saved my little band,
the post, and the railroad. Later— reinforcements having arrived, I was relieved, and
ordered to return home with my troops, Such was the excitement of the time that my
command was continually overrun with refugees, seeking safety. I made a forced march
of one hundred miles in four days, subsisting upon the enemy as best we could. I took
forty prominent rebels prisoners, whom I forwarded to St. Louis, and some property,
which was turned over to General Prentis. The men of my command were generally
substantial farmers, a large number of them over fifty years of age. They endured the
fatigue of the campaign with fortitude. Their bravery was tested at several critical
periods; they never flinched or complained of their hard fare. They deserve well of their
Country. These troops served one month.
I have the honor to be, very respectfully, your obedient servant,
JOHN EDWARDS, Lieutenant Colonel and Aide Camp,
Commanding Iowa Troops
It will thus be Seen that these hardy sons of Iowa—insufficiently equipped and
without military experience—bravely co operated with the troops who were regularly
enrolled in the Service of the United States, in putting down treason and rebellion in the
State of Missouri. They had enlisted for the purpose of defending their own homes
against invasion and possible destruction, but. when called upon to aid their loyal
brethren on the other side of the border, they nobly responded to the call At the time this
sketch is written—nearly fifty years after the events it described had transpired—a few of
the aged men who belonged to the Southern Border Brigade are still living in their old
homes, and a few of those against whom they contended, across the border in Missouri,
still survive. These men and their descendants are now living in peace and amity under
the Hag of a restored Union. The bitter enmities which existed in those days of strife and
discord are forgotten and the two great Commonwealths of Iowa and Missouri vie with
each other only in their efforts to contribute to the strength, greatness and perpetuity of
the Great Republic to which they belong.'
