Military Information, Formations and News WINTER 1861-62 North Carolina Standard Raleigh November 27, 1861 The 37th Regiment was organized at High Point on Wednesday last by the election of the following officers: C.C. Lee as colonel, William Barber as lt. colonel, J.B. Bryan as major. The announcement of officers of companies of the 35th Regiment last week contained an error, the name of William T. Jones, Company A was incorrect, it should have been Thomas J. Jones. Lt. Woolen, taken prisoner on Santa Rosa Island by the Confederates and imprisoned at Montgomery has been exchanged for Lt. Sharpe, captured by the Federals at Hatteras. North Carolina Standard Raleigh December 4, 1861 In a strict encounter with pistols and bowie knives at Goldsboro some days ago, Mr. Privett was killed instantly by a pistol shot. Several parties were engaged on both sides. North Carolina Standard Raleigh December 11, 1861 Ft. Helen, Virginia, Nov. 27 Mr. Editor: Your readers have been ignorant of the maneuvers of the 4th Regiment N.C.V. for some time past and taking it for granted that a letter from camp would not be objectionable I ask a small space in your paper for the purpose of giving some news. Our regiment is still near Smithfield. We have finished our winter quarters and are as satisfied and comfortable as any regiment of men who wish to be. Since we have got in our quarters the camp has been changed from Camp Bee to Fort Bee. Two companies, the Raleigh Rifles and Cleaveland Blues have been quartered at the Bay for the winter. They have also got into their quarters and the camp is called Ft. Ellen in honor of Col. Daniel’s estimable lady. The two companies are under the command of Major Folson(?). It was rumored through camp the other day and the rumor is still rife, that we were going to be sent to Kentucky, which meets the common disapprobation of all the soldiers I have conversed with on the subject. Now, if we had been sent there a month or two ago, we could not have been better pleased but after having worked and toiled to build quarters to make us comfortable during the winter and fortifications to protect us we are loath to leave them and go to a colder region where we will have nothing but worn out tents to protect us from the snow storms in western Kentucky. We have heard with much astonishment of the appointment of L. O’B Branch as Brigadier General in the C.S. Army. I guess that he has forgotten that when the Raleigh Rifles were formed, he appeared before the company and made a speech of nearly an hours length, throwing officers to the dogs—announcing that he was among the first to bring on the war and that he was going fully into the fight as a private in the company he then addressed. As soon as the meeting of the company had adjourned, he proceeded to the court house where at a meeting of the citizens had convened. As soon as he entered the hall, he was called upon for a speech. He responded to the call and in his remarks he went on to tell his listeners abut his volunteering—that he hoped they would go and do as he had done—that he had set them an example—(and I doubt not but at the same time he had the commission in his pocket). The sentiment of all the soldiers that I have heard speak of about his appointment is “God deliver us from such generals as General Branch”. Colonels Daniel and Lovejoy have been sick for the past few weeks but are now improving rapidly. The health of the regiment is good. The Raleigh Rifles had an election yesterday for first lieutenant to fill the vacancy occasioned by the resignation of Lt. S. H. (or B.?) Rogers and Quentin Bushee was unanimously elected. Alphonzo One of the Potomac correspondents of the Richmond Dispatch gave a graphic and interesting account of the recent charge by a portion of Col. Ransom’s cavalry regiment by which 26 prisoners and a number of horses, pistols, sabers, etc., were captured. Lt. Cowles of Company A attacked the enemy’s attacked the enemy’s cavalry with a small force of 25. The Yankees fled and on the 26th, Col. Ransom himself led about 120 men to the charge. The Yankees were totally routed and no body of men ever charged more gallantly or with more enthusiasm than Col. Ransom and his men. Sgts. E. Green and Lappard and Ptes. Nim Triplett, J.L. Todd, S.J. Brown, D.P. Mast of Company D; Lt. Roane of Company K; Primrose (no rank), Company H; and Sgts. Hagart, and Farmer of Company B are spoken of as having distinguished themselves. Major Gordon of Wilkes was far ahead in the charge and killed two of the enemy and wounded others. Every North Carolinian is justly proud of this noble regiment. We learn from the Washington Journal that General Green’s Battalion which is a part of the Wise Legion has arrived at Wilmington and is encamped there. The officers of the battalion are Wharton J. Green, lt. colonel; Marcus Erwin, major; Frank Patterson, surgeon; S. D. Young, assistant surgeon; Capt. A.H. Shuford, commissary; W.R. Landrum, acting adjutant. There are five companies with the following captains: R.C. Overby, Milton Smith, L.M. Allen, E. Smith, W.S. Du Bose. Capt. Shuford is a native of this state but recently from Georgia. He at one time represented Catawba in the legislature. North Carolina Standard Raleigh December 25, 1861 37th Regiment This fine regiment now in camp at High Point was organized on the 20th November.

Please publish for the information of their friends John Barnes died Oct. 12 R.P. Freeman died Oct. 13 James Edge died Oct. 14 John R. Shaw and L. Faircloth died Oct. 17 James Collier died Oct. 22 Daniel Bain died Oct. 26 James Cobb died Nov. 7 I am very glad to state that the health of our company is somewhat better. Although many of our men are unable to perform duty, yet we have only two or three dangerous cases. I think the same is true to some extent of the regiment. Still, there are many who will never open their eyes again upon their homes and the loved ones they have left behind. The surgeon of our regiment has resigned and gone home, his failing health having rendered this course necessary. It is reported that he avowed his intention to use every exertion to have our regiment ordered back to North Carolina. God knows how gladly such an order would be obeyed. Dr. Millard, who was sent through the humane exertions of Mr. J.C. Blocker, arrived here yesterday morning and proceeded immediately to Blue Sulphur Springs to attend our sick brothers. All the Plough Boys entertain a high sense of the obligations they are under to Mr. Blocker and the other patriotic citizens of Cumberland for the many kindnesses extended to them. Should the dastardly foe ever give us the opportunity we will endeavor to show ourselves worthy of these favors. The regiment is to be moved tomorrow to Blue Sulphur Springs, where most of our sick are. Very Respectfully, J.A.M.

Editors: The 31st Regiment was ordered from Fort Hill to Roanoke Island last week, and on Saturday evening we took up our line of march for Plymouth, sending most of our baggage around by water. Col. Jordan and several of his officers went b steamer, the command of the first and second divisions devolving respectively on Captains Godwin and Liles. We were favored with remarkable fine weather—the men were cheerful and pleased at the change and everything passed off comfortably and pleasantly on the march. About 100 men were left at the hospital in Washington under the care of Dr. Gallagher, post surgeon. Seventeen of our men—the “OK Boys” of Anson are among the sick, though only one or two of them were considered dangerously so. Every attention and kindness were shown by the hospitable citizens along the route and at no place yet visited by us have the manifestations of liberality and patriotism been more striking than at Plymouth, where we arrived on Monday morning and remained until today. While we live the memory of our stay there will be remembered by us with pleasure and none among us will ever forget the names of Spruill, Phelps, Latham, Nichols, Norcom and many others when we speak of generous, kind, liberal, intelligent and patriotic people. The whole of the regiment is now on its way down the Sound. Three schooners were towed down to the mouth of the river last night and one with the “OK Boys” aboard is in tow of our steamer now. The others we have not overtaken. We learn that very comfortable winter quarters are in readiness for us, prepared by Col. Wright’s (Ga.) Regiment which has been ordered to Norfolk. In hast, yours truly, “O.K.” Third Regiment Major General R.C. Gatlan, Adjutant and Inspector General, N.C. General: I have the honor to make the following report of the part taken by my regiment in the battle of the 27th November near Bartlett’s Mills. On the morning of the 27th November, having slept the previous night in the trenches, my regiment, with the rest of the brigade, took up the line of march along the public road, crossing Bartlett’s Mills, and running east of Mine Run; having crossed Mine Run at Bartlett’s Mills, proceeded about two miles, when the head of the column (my regiment) was fired upon by the sharp shooters of the enemy. I immediately received the order to load, throw our skirmishers and feel the enemy. This order was accordingly obeyed by sending forward 1st Lt. George W. Ward, with the regular detail of skirmishers, connecting his line with that of the regiment on my right. This line pushed forward until it came to a heavy line of the enemy’s skirmishers, when Lt. Ward informed me of the fact, and of his inability to hold his position. I then ordered my left company, commanded by Capt. J.B. Brown, to his support, and a second company, commanded by 1st Lt. Stokly, was held in reserve to both. Capt. Brown assuming command of the 1st and 2nd detachments of skirmishers, now formed on one line, vigorously pushed forward, driving the enemy’s sharp shooters back and discovered the enemy drawn up in force in the edge of a field and under a rail fence. Capt. Brown here received one volley from the main line and was in turn driven in. Just here the skirmishers were withdrawn, except the regular detail, and the line of battle was formed in a ravine behind, about 400 yards from, and in a diagonal line with this road. I here received an order that the 37th Virginia, on my left, would move farther to the left, which as soon as done I should close to the left and go immediately forward. Before this order could be obeyed and after the 37th had moved off to the left, the whole right of the brigade moved forward and I then received the order to go forward with it, thus changing my guide to the right instead of tot the left, as previously ordered, and leaving a space of three or four hundred yards between my left and the 37th Virginia, unoccupied. My regiment immediately moved forward in as perfect order as the thick undergrowth and nature of the ground would admit. Meeting the enemy just where their line crossed the road, here the action was quite sharp for a short time, when the men with a yell charged the position, driving in confusion three strong lines of the enemy before them. The pursuit was followed for about 800 yards, when I discovered the enemy turning my left. I immediately changed front, but three companies on the right not hearing this command, did not follow the movement and afterwards formed on the 1st N.C. Regiment on my right, with six companies; my left company having been thrown out previously to aid the 37th Virginia. I changed my front so as to meet the flanking party; but being largely outnumbered, retired to the field beyond the road, where a temporary work had been thrown up of rails and such other material as could be hastily gotten together. Here I met the Brigade commander and being soon joined by the 37th Virginia, was ordered to remain in that position with sharpshooters thrown well forward. I remained here until an order was received to form in line with the rest of the brigade on the road. This being done, rested for four or five hours when we moved on beyond Mine Run and bivouacked for the night. The officers and men behaved with their usual coolness and courage and where all acted well, no distinction can be made. The accompanying list of casualties will show with what determination the men entered this contest. I cannot speak in too high terms of my Lt. Col., Parsely, and Major Kinnett, for their coolness and precision in discharge of their respective duties; and my thanks are due 1st Lt. Mallett(?), Acting Adjutant; for the faithful performance of his duties, who had his horse killed under him while conveying my orders. Respectfully Submitted S.D. Thurston, Col., 3rd N.C.
