The desperate struggle in which our Regiment was engaged, and the
persistence with which the boys fought, may be seen from, the list of
killed and wounded as presented above. Only about 600 went into the
fight. Of these, 195 were killed and wounded; just about every third
man.

The boys had, it will be remembered, when they left Fort Heiman oa
the morning of the 12th of February, only two days' rations. They
received nothing more until the evening of the 15th, after they had
been engaged in the severe battle of that forenoon. Thus their two
days' rations had to last them four days. Many of the officers, who
had entrusted their haversacks to their servants, became separated from
those servants, and were almost without anything to eat for the last
forty-eight hours. There was no chance for foraging there. Often
now, our Regiment will go out on a scout with three days' rations, and
live very well on it for six or eight .days. Such was the battle of Fort
Donelson, and the part the 9th took in it.

The Regiment remained at Fort Donelson until the 22d of February,
yrhen the Brigade proceeded up the Cumberland River to Fort Sevier
Hear Clarksville, where they disembarked and went into camp on the 25th.

Major Kuhn, formerly Provost Marshal of Paducah, and Co. H of
the 9th Regiment, his Provost Guard, reported to the Regiment for
duty on the 23d. The Regiment remained in camp here until the 27th r
when it embarked on board the steamer " Woodford," and proceeded up



26 A HISTORY OP

the river to Nashville, Term., arriving there on the morning of the
28th. Here it remained until March 1st, when it returned to camp at
Fort Sevier.

"When our forces advanced .up the Cumberland River to Clarksville
and Nashville, they found no enemy to oppose them. After the rebels
surrendered Fort Donelson, they seemed to be seized with terror. The
rebel Governor and Legislature fled from Nashville in terror, taking
with them 'whatever they could of State property. The writer, being
then in Illinois, well remembers the public rejoicing there was over the
result of this victory. There seemed to be a feeling prevailing in the
North that the "backbone" of the Rebellion was broken, and that we
would soon have peace. But two years have passed away, (I write this
sketch on the 16th of February, the anniversary of Fort Donelson's
surrender,) and, although .we have several times since that been cheered
with the promise that the "backbone" of the Rebellion was broken,
still it lives. It is said a snake's tail does not die until sunset, even
though its back may be Broken and its head mashed. Perhaps, as the
rebs. had, at first, a snake for their emblem, this may be the reason it
it is so long dying. Maybe it is only the tail of it that now remains
alive. When, however, sunset will come, and its tail cease to live, is
difficult to determine. May it be soon.

Some incidents occurred during this period, worthy of note. During
the time the Regiment was engaged in battle at Fort Donelson, James
Getty, of Co. F, aged about 60 years, was observed by Lieut. Williford
of his Co., to decline laying down to load. He stood, loaded his gun>
and fired as deliberately as if he had been shooting at a target for a
wager. The Lieut, told him he had batter lay down to load, or he would
get shot. His reply was, " I reckon I know my business," and again
raised his gun and deliberately lowered it upon hiK selected rebeL
Soon the Lieut, saw him tumble over, and supposing he was killed,
went to him. But he jumped up, and said he guessed he was not much
hurt. He was shot in the shoulder, but he gathered up his musket
and went to firing again. It was not long until another ball struck
his pocket-book. He had some silver in it. The ball struck a silver
half dollar, and mashed it up, driving it against his thigh, bruising' it
very much. Two or three buckshot were lodged in him. Still
.stood firing away at the enemy. I might also say in this connectio
that this same man, at the battle of Shiloh, when the RegimeYit ran out
of ammunition and had to fall back for a new supply, fell in with some
other Regimlht; procured a supply of ammunition from some one, and
went to fighting again. When that Regiment in turn fell back, he



THE NINTH REGIMENT. 27

happened in with some other one, and there fought* In this way h0
spent the whole of that terrible Sabbath day. When he ceased fight-
ing with any company, he was careful to go to the commander of it,
and get a certificate, stating that he had been fighting with it. When
he returned to his company in the evening, he had certificates from
several Captains and one Colonel. He preserved these certificates, so
that he might show, when he returned to his Regiment, that he had not
been straijgli'flfj, but fiylttiwj. He went into the fight on the next
* day, and was shot in the head. From this wound he recovered, but
was afterwards discharged on account of it.

Another incident. Surgeon Gulick (then Assistant Surgeon) was
taken prisoner by the "Texan Rangers/' while attending to his
duties in the hospital. He insisted, that being Surgeon, he should not
be retained as a prisoner; that there were a large number of wounded
men under his charge, and no one to care for them but himself. The
rebels persisted, however, in taking him.- They told him that they had
some wounded men, and he must come and attend to them. One
of them was leading his horse along, taking him back to where their
wounded were. He was in the rear of a rebel Regiment. The man
who led his horse was shot. The Doctor does not say l>y whom he was
shot. He put spurs to his -horse to make his escape. He had to ride
through a rebel Regiment. A perfect shower*" Mtamsfoet balls followed
him. To increase his danger, our own soldiers supposing him to belong
to a party of rebels making a charge, fired ujglfehim from the front.
He was riding Surgeon Hamilton's horse. Strapped to his saddle was
a buffalo robe. He had often joked with Dr. Hamilton about having
that tied on there as a protection when he would be making his escape
from the enemy. Five balls passed into this robe, and were lodged
among its folds. The Doctor made his escape; but thinks he would
never attempt to make another such.

Still another incident, with which the Doctor was connected. After
the battle at Fort Donelson, he was placed on board a steamer with 275
wounded men, and shoved out into the river, without any medicine,
without anything for the men to -eat, with no instruments but carpenter
tools, and in that condition remained for three days. If he attempted
to take off a limb, he had to use a common cook's knife for a dissecting
knife, and a carpenter's saw to sever the bone. He had no bandages
with which- to wrap up the wounds, except he take the only shirt they
had. This truly was a trying position in which to place a good surgeon*

Still another. The present color-bearer received a shet in the arm-
The ball was lodged" there. The Doctor cut the ball out, but he would



28 A HISTORY OP

not wait to have a bandage put on it, but snatched his musket and
rushed to the fight again.

One more incident. At the battle of Fort Donelson a soldier of Co.
K found in the knapsack of a Southern soldier, who had been killed in
battle, the picture of a beautiful young lady. He carefully preserved
it. At the battle of Shiloh, this soldier was killed. On examining his
knapsack, to make the proper inventory of his goods, the Orderly of
his company found this picture. He remembered the circumstance of
its being found. He carefully preserved it. It was a great favorite
with the boys in the company, and received the name of " The Daughter
of Co. K." When the Regiment was on the march from Corinth to
Athens, in November, 1863, it passed through the town of Pulaski,
Tenn. As Lieut. Oats, of Co. K, was riding along the streets of Pulaski,
he saw a young lady standing at the door of one of the residences of the
town, whom he at once recognized as the original of the picture in pos-.
session of Co. K. Speaking of the matter to others in the company,.
they all agreed that this was the original. The Lieutenant learned
afterwards, to a certainty, that it was the same. The picture still
remained in his possession, until near the last of January, 1884. At
the time Gen. Roddy's forces made a dash upon our camp, when the
Regiment was nearly all out, the officers, as well as men, lost everything
that was in their tents. Among other things, the picture of "The
Daughter of Co. K," was taken. Its loss is much regretted by the boys,



CHAPTER IV.

FROM BATTLE OF SHILOH TO BATTLE AT CORINTH.

Trip up the Tennessee River Remain on boat Battle of Shiloh
Losses in this battle Losses in 9th Regt. 111. Inft.List of killed
and wounded Advance upon Corinth Pursuit Officers commis-
sioned Garrison Rienzi.

Having ascended the Cumberland River, and ascertained that the
enemy had evacuated all the prominent points on it, Gen. Grant now
marshals his forces for a trip up the Tennessee-River, hoping fro$it
to reach Corinth, where the enemy were strongly fortifying themselves ;
and collecting in great number.

The 9fch 111. Inft. was destined to take part in this expedition.
Hence, it struck tents at Fort Sevier on the 6th March, 1862, and
embarked, with camp and garrison equipage, on board the steamers
"Lady Pike" and "Commercial." It moved down the Cumberland

River on the morning of the 7th, and, passed Fort Donelson on the 8th,
reaching Paducah the same evening. It moved up the Tennessee OD
10th [March, and joined Gen. Grant's flotilla six miles above Fort Henry.

The trip up the Tennessee River, with this great army, is described
by the boys, as grand beyond all description. There were, I believe,
ninety-five steamboats loaded with soldiers. The weather was beautiful
and pleasant. Bands of music were playing. , Everything that was
calculated to charm was there. Doubtless very many of this great
multitude did not realize that in a short time so many of them must
fall in the deadly conflict. The terrors to come were forgotten in the
joys and grandeur of the hour.

This fleet, containing a grand army, reached Savannah, Tenn., on
me 12th of March, 1862. Here the boats remained tied up until the
18th of March, when we moved up to Pittsburg Landing, disembarked
and went into camp, one-quarter of a mile from the river, on the 19th.
On the 28d, our camp was moved one-half mile further back from, the
river. At this point the 81st Ohio, and the 13th and 14th Missouri
Infantry, were attached to the Brigade. The two latter were after-
wards exchanged for the 22d Ohio and 66t^ Illinois Infantry.

On the 1st of April Col. Mersy was ordered to the command of the
Brigade, in .the place of Col. McArthur, who had been placed under
arrest.

On the morning of the 6th, at daylight, the enemy made a furious
attack on Gen. Prentiss' Division. The enemy move- 1 forward in echelon^
by Divisions, point foremost, the evident intenSW being to break, by a
furious attack, the centre of our line. But in this they did not succeed.
Gen. Prentiss was compelled, however, to fall back a short distance to
his supports. Here he gallantly maintained his position for a long time.

But my object in this sketch, is not to give an account of this terrible
battle, but of the part the 9th Illinois took in it.

Our Division was held in reserve, and consequently did not reach the
field of action until after noon. Col. McArthur had been released from
arrest, and resumed command of his Brigade.. Brig. Gen. W. H. L.
Wallace relieved Major General Smith of the command of our Division,
the latter being too un,well to do duty on the field. We were moved to
the left of Prentiss' Division. On the way the Regiment met with
hundreds of stragglers hastening in confusion to the sheltering cover of
the river bank for protection. About fifty of these were pressed into
our Regiment. Nearly all of them were killed or wounded during the
day.

The Regiment held its place in the line for two hours, against a vastly

* *

superior force of the enemy. The 41st 111. Inft. was on our right, and
the 12th 111. Inft. on our left. The latter Regiment fell back three
hundred yards, after being exposed to the fire of the enemy for over an
hour. Thus our left flank was exposed to a flank movement of the
enemy. Of this they soon took advantage, ami poured a murderous
fire down the ravine which we occupied. After holding this position
until a new line was formed, three hundred yards in the rear, the
Regiment fell back hastily behind it. It was not long, however, until
this line was broken by the terrible- assault of the overwhelming forces
of the enemy. A new line, of immense strength, was finally formed
one-half mile from the landing. All the available artillery was gathered
to this point; the victorious advance of, the enemy was checked, and
their masses for the first time during the day recoiled before the mur-
derous discharges of grape and canister from one hundred iron throats.
Gen. Prentiss' Division not falling back soon enough to this new line?
were completely surrounded, and compelled to surrender to the enemy.
The Division numbered about 3,000 men.

After the repulse of the enemy at this point, no further attack was
made, and night soon clo^jjii the conflict of the day. During the night
the gunboats kept up a constant firing of 64-pound shells among the
enemy, and finally compelled them to fall back six hundred yards,
gave our forces a fine .chance to operate in the morning. During
e night also, some 20,000 fresh troops from Buell's army were ferried
ross the river. Mf^Hbn. Wallace's Division, from Gruiapt's Landing, .
e up on the left BB: of the enemy. So that on the morning of tha
7th we had 20,000 fresh troops on the front of the enemy, our gunboats
on their right, and Gen. Wallace's Division of 6,000 fresh troops on
their left flank. -. The contest was not long. The enemy soon gave way.
Then began a retreat which finally, at 3, P. M., -became a perfect rout,
as" they fled in wild dismay toward their works at Corinth. The miser-
able condition of the roads prevented pursuit for more than half of the
distance. Hence, we succeeded in capturing only 1,000 prisoners.

The entire Union loss in this engagement was, 1,700 killed, 9.000
wounded, and 3,800 taken prisoners. The rebel Joss was about 2,300
killed, 12,000 wounded, and 1,000 taken prisoners. Total Union loss,
14,500. Total rebel loss, 15,800.

Here, in this one battle, were 4,000 American citizens left dead tipon
the battle-field, and 21,000 more woundld.' By whom was this terrible
destruction of life ? Had some savage foe invaded our once happy
and peaceful land ? Ah, no ! It was the hand of brother against
brother; fellow-citizen against fellow-citizen ! It arose on the one hand y

from a determination to rivet tighter and tighter the chains of human
bondage^, even at the cost of the overthrow of that government under
which our country has been so highly prospered ; and on the other hancL
from a determination that so good a government should riot be over-
thrown to support any such unhallowed cause Oh, the sadness of human
strife, and especially when it arises from a family quarrel!

The loss of the 9th 111. Inft. in this battle, was Gl killed on thefieldr
and 287 wounded. Among the killed, was Lieut F. Vogler, of Co. B-
