Supported Storn:wall Jackson's Attack at Gallic" Mill—Awfol Havoc of Antletam. From Virginia to Battlefields In tbe far South—At Kichmond and Petersbnre. [Copyright, iSSS.-'by Amorirati Press Association. Book rights reserved.] KLY oneparalk'l can b« found in the records of famous Federal regiments for tbe .striking battle record of the Sixth Georgia. In point of numbers enrolled, length of service arid losses in killed on tbe field, both numerically and by percentage, the history of the Second Wisconsin is identical with that of the banner Georgia regiment. Both entered the field in 18G1. The record of the Sixth Georgia, as found in the only regimental history preserved, closes ill July, 1864, with the regiment in the trenches at Petersburg. The Second Wisconsin was mustered out in June, 1864, having closed its fighting career at Spottsyl- vania. Its death roll was the heaviest of any infantry regiment in the Federal army according to numbers enrolled. Placed in juxtaposition^ the figures indicating the strength and losses of these two regiments are seen to be remarkably close: Per Enrolled.Killed, cent.Wounded. Second Wisconsin. 1,208 288 19.7 flla Sixth Georgia 1,293 238 10.5 039 Ten different counties contributed the ten companies organized as the Sixth Georgia regiment, in May, 1861. The regiment was the first in Georgia, and possibly in the whole Confederacy, to enlist for the war. Captain Alfred H. Colquitt was elected colonel. Proceeding at once to Kichmond the Sixth was seat to Yorktown in the column forming there to stay the advance of the Federal forces up the peninsula from Fortress Monroe. During a year in the Yorktowu army the regimeat lost 125 men by sickness. No heavy fighting fell to its lot until the battle of Seven Pines, at the close of May, 1862. The regiment was in the brigade of General Rains, which charged upon the Federal flank when- it was surprised at Seven Pines. Compared with other portions of the division engaged there under A. P. Hill the loss in the brigade was slight. The Sixth lost heavily in its right companies, its adjutant was killed ami Lieutenant Colonel J. M. Newton wounded. At the battle of Gaiues Mill, which the Confederates call Cold Harbor, the Sixth fought in a brigade newly organized under Colonel Colquitt, who had been made a brigadier. It was attached to the division'of D. H. Hill and under him supported Stonewall Jackson iu the flank attack which he had brought his ' valley army down ' to spring upon Fit2 John Porter's line north of the Chickahoroiuy. The following brief account of the experience of the Sixth that day, written in thg field by aui officer, shows what a matter of fact affair the going into battle becomes: "Wemarched rapidly and reached the battlefield about 1 o'clock in the afternoon. Under a hot fire from the batteries on the adjacent hills we were thrown lirst oa one part of the lines and then on the other as the enemy seemed to be ecu centra ting on 0110 or the other point. At lust we were ordered forward and scion met the foe. With a shout pur hoys charged, and the enemy gave way until re-enforced by tho second line of battle, when we were halted and with our thinned ranks fought most desperately for more than two hours. JuBtat this time re-enforce- ments were sent to our .-relief, and, mistaking us for the enemy, poured a desperate volley into our ::ear. Even under tho concentrated :6re from friend and foo our shattered ranks stood unbroken. The re-enforcements swept by, driving the enemy before them. Darkness coming on, we slept on our arms. Our loss was exceedingly heavy—more than 200 killed and wounded, fully half the miruber carried into action." The struggle described took place on the McGee House hill, first with the regular battalions under Sykesand then with the volunteers of General J. J. Bartlett's brigade. During the "Seven Days' battles" Hill's division remained with Jackson's column and didn't get into action until tbe afternoon of July 1, when it marched op to the Federal batteries ranged "tier above tier" at Malvern Hill. At the signal for attack Hill's division charged alone. Seeing that there were no troops supporting his leading brigade under General Garland, Hill sent the Sixth Georgia across the bullet swept field to the task. Fortunately for the regiment Toombs' Georgia brigade marched tip from the flauk and drew the enemy's lire or the Sixth would have been wiped out. It escaped with a loss of 50 men. The Sixth missed th<a bloody field of Second Bull JRun, Hiill's division remaining at Richmond when Lee marched north against Pope, but it made up for it in the battles iu Maryland. At Autiatani it fought, iu the cornfield along .the pike, where its Federal double, the Second Wisconsin, was en- gagi-d. General Colquitt's brigade was iu the first line to advance from the woods at Bunker's Church across the cornfield to the fence, beyond which lay Hooker's batteries an>ct line of battle. The Sixth regiment worst into the fight 250 strong. It -made a breastwork of the fence and plied bullets into the Federals untila second line of the enemy marched upon it in front and a column came up on the flank, breaking Col- qnitt's command'into i'ragments. Hurled back into the tall corn and pursued by the enemy, the fragments became intermingled with ranks of their foes. Still the Georgians held on, waiting for lupports which attempted to reach them, bnt ww» -cutr off on their blind inarch through th« corn. That field was a place O:L unparalleled slaughter for both sides. Hill's divif-ion lost over half its number, and some brigades were destroyed. One of 34 field officers 6 were killed and i? wounded. Colonel Newton und Major Tracy of the Sixth were among the killed, and the regiment lost 19G in killed and wounded and 30 missing. Eight line officers slept on the field of glory beside their fallen commanders. Colquitt's brigade was reoi'ganized after AntiJtam, and the ranks of the depleted regiments filled by recruiting. Tbe Sixth had 'a respite frora heavy fighting foi: a time. It was in the front of the colnimn which Stonewall Jackson hurled upon Hooker's right flank on the plaok road beyond Chaucellorsville May 2, 18fi:3, and also in the thick of the fight at the GhancellorsviBe house on Sunday, May 3. In tbe two days' battles it lost but 50 men. When Lee marched northward to Gettysburg, the brigade was sent to North Carolina and thence to Charleston, where it took a conspicuous part in the defense of tbe island batteries, especially Fort Wagner. In resisting the attacks on Sumter and Wagner tide regiment lost many of its best men. In leaving Virginia the regiment by no means turned away from the battle. In the middle of the winter of 1864 when Lee's army lay in camp on the Kapidan, G'olquitt's brigade was ordered to Florida to help check the Federal invasion of the interior of that state. The campaign was settled at one blow by the battle of Olustee, or Ocean Pond, Feb. 20. At the beginning of the battle thd Sixth was detached from the brigade and sent to the extreme left of the Confederate position, where attack was least expected. But the unexpected happened and the regiment was heavily engaged for four hours. The cartridge boxes of the fighting men were emptied and those of the dead and- wounded oa .the field rifled for supplies, and the regiment held its ground until Colquitt brought up the full brigade to its support. The Confederates won the day, and after seeing tbe country cleared of Federals for good the Georgians started north again, halidng for a time at Charleston. The Sixth lost 62 killed and wounded at Olastee. When the campaign opened in May, 1864, Colquitt was ordered to Virginia and reached Richmond just as General Bntler was advancing upon the city from the south. His command joined Beauregard for the defense of Drewry's Bluff on the 16th of May. Beauregard took the initiative and attacked Butler at daylight. The Sixth supported General Ransom's charge, which at a swoop carried the Federal breastworks, and came out with a loss of 92 killed and wounded. This battle saved Richmond for a time, but the Confederates were disappointed that Butler was allowed to escape. After seeing Butler disposed of Colquitt's brigade crossed tbe James to help Lee head off Grant, and on tbe 1st of June the Sixth stood on the same ground where it had fought two years before in the battle of Gaines Mill. The Federal charges of the 1st and 3d were easily repulsed with no loss to the Confederates worth naming. In front of the Sixth the Eighth New York heavy artillery lost over 500 men killed and wounded in a single charge. A Georgia officer who was there says: "Our men COLOXEL A. H. COLQCITT. [Leader of the Sbrtli Georgia.] stood perfectly cool and deliberate and alniu,-c every shot brought down its man. The ground in front of our works was literally covered with Federal dead and wounded." '•• Immediately after the bloody repulse of Grant's efforts at Cold Harbor, Col- qnitt returned to the south of the James and occupied the trenches at Petersburg. The command built the famous salient on the cast of the city in front of Hare's hill, where the Federal Fort Stedman was located. The slaughter of Federals in front of Colquitt's salient was equal to that of Cold Harbor. It /was there that the First Maine heavy artillery lost 682 men killed and wounded in a single charge on the 18th of June. For 60 days the Georgians stood under fire in those trenches, and it is well known history that every attempt of Grant to force them failed. During that time the Sixth lost 24 killed and SO wounded. Its commander, Colonel Arnold, was killed July 1. When Grant began operations to turn Lee's left at the Weldou road, Colquitt once more rushed to'the point of danger. His brigade fought in Hill's column ai; Globe Tavern on the 19th of September in the attack on General Warren's forces, which had seized a strip of the railroad to cut off Lee's supplies coming from the south. The Sixth joined in a flank attack on Wiirren, led : by General Mahone. Entering the fight 250 strong, it bore off as trophies four Federal battleflags and the commander of a brigade of Penosylvanians, together with his staff and 1,000 men. This swoop was .made by penetalting between the pickets and picket reserves and the main line of Federals. GEORGE i\ KILJCKB.
