Pay and Muster Roll of the CSS Sumter, April 1 - September 30, 1861. The CSS Sumter was originally the steamer Habana of New Orleans, built at Philadelphia in 1859. It was purchased in April 1861 by the Confederate government, converted into a cruiser, and commissioned on June 3, 1861, under the command of Captain Raphael Semmes. Having escaped the blockade on June 30, she cruised the waters around the West Indies and off the eastern coast of South America, capturing several prizes. She was discovered coaling at St. Pierre, Matinique by the USS Iroquois, but managed to escape and headed for Spain , where she anchored at Cadiz on January 4, 1862. Later she was hemmed in at Gibraltar, where she was sold on December 19, 1862.

Third Battery 1st Michigan Light Artillery SOLDIERS' LETTERS 
Frank Higgins was one of the many men in the Battery from Allegan, and was just 19 when he enlisted as a private in the fall of 1861. The letters we have from Frank were written to his parents and were printed in the Allegan Journal at the behest of his father, John Higgins. Personal details were undoubtedly edited out before publication.

SMITH W HIGGINS 
Also See ON SITE NPS LISTING # 270 NY
132nd New York State Volunteers U.S. Signal Corps Yaphank
Smith W Higgins worked as a seaman until he enlisted in the army on August 21, 1862. He was thirty-three years old at the time, stood five feet four inches tall, and had black eyes and dark hair. He left behind his wife of three years, Harriet, whom he married in 1859; and their son, Lloyd, who was born on October 29, 1860.

He went to Staten Island to join the 132nd New York State Volunteers, also referred to as Spinola's Brigade, after the general who led them. Parts of the regiment were made up of Iroquois Indians who were recruited off of Seneca and Tuscarora reservations.

Higgins was quickly promoted to 3rd Corporal on September 9, 1862. Soon after, on September 28, the regiment moved to Washington, D.C. On October 4, the regiment boarded a transport to a station near Suffolk, Virginia. Later that month, Higgins' company was ordered to do a reconnaissance to the Blackwater River. They left on October 30 with three days' rations, and returned November 1. Company B formed part of an expedition that again went to the Blackwater, and was held in reserve at the skirmish at Zuni.

In December, the 132nd was ordered to New Bern, a major railroad terminal in eastern North Carolina. The men remained there until February. They set up camp behind entrenchments to the right of Fort Totten, where they were able to command the front approach to New Bern. While there, Higgins was promoted to 1st Corporal, on January 19, 1863.

On March 6, 1863, the company formed part of an expedition to Pollacksville, Trenton and Young's Cross Roads, returning on March 10. They were involved in light skirmishing, but there were no casualties. During April, the regiment engaged in a series of expeditions, but there was no fighting.

On May 23rd, 1863, the regiment was ordered to support the 58th Massachusetts at Bachellor's Creek. Colonel Jones, leader of the 58th, was killed in action, and some of his forces began to withdraw. The 132nd advanced, however, and pushed the Confederates back to Kingston, North Carolina. Higgins' regiment remained at Bachellor's Creek from June through August.

After passing an exam, Higgins transferred to the U. S Signal Corps, on August 28, 1863, by order of Major General Foster. The role of the Signal Corps was to send important information quickly. In the early days of the Civil War, Generals relied on dispatches delivered by horseback. This process was both slow and unreliable. The Signal Corps devised a way of sending information quickly. The Corps would follow the army and set up forward observation posts on high ground, allowing the men to observe the enemy through high-powered telescopes. A soldier using a flag on a long pole then sent a message to a central relay station. A dip of the flag to the right or left indicated a number; these numbers stood for letters that then made up the message. The message was then sent by telegraph from the central station to headquarters. At night, the men used poles with torches, rather than flags. This, unfortunately, made them excellent targets for sharpshooters. Nevertheless, the Signal Corps served a very important role in the Civil War. United States Signal Corps training camp at Georgetown District of Columbia

Higgins was assigned to Captain Clum of the Signal Corps. After a year, he was granted furlough on August 31, 1864. After his return, Higgins contracted malarial fever and was treated at the regimental hospital in Bachelor's Creek by Dr. Rice. He was later moved to Foster General Hospital, where he was declared unfit for duty in March of 1865. When the war ended, Higgins was discharged from the army on June 30, 1865, in Georgetown. Smith Higgins then returned to his wife and son in Yaphank. They had three more children: Anne, born March 8, 1867; Charles, born April 8, 1873; and Wilson, born August 7, 1882. Higgins was an active community and church member in Yaphank. He completed the 1890 U.S. Census for Yaphank and surrounding areas. He was also elected and served as the Yaphank school clerk and librarian. 
In addition, he was an active member of the G.A.R., a political and social fraternity for Union veterans, and participated in many of their gatherings.

John Washington Higgins was born February 5, 1841 at Kingston, Roane County, Tennessee. He enlisted at Trenton, Dade Co., Georgia on May 20, 1861. He served as both a private and a 2nd Sergeant in Co. B, 6th Georgia Infantry, also known as the �Lookout Dragoons. He fought in the battles of Seven Pines, Cold Harbor, Second Manassas, South Mountain, Maryland; Sharpsburg, Ocean Pond, Florida; Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, Fort Sumpter, Siege of Yorktown, Williamsburg, Mechanicsville, White Oak Swamp, James Island, S.C.; Battery Wagner, the Siege of Petersburg, and others. He was transferred to the sea coast just after the battle of Chancellorsville in May, 1863, and returned to Virginia in May, 1864. He received two slight wounds at the Battle of Drewry�s Bluff, but did not leave the field. Just after the Seven Day�s Battles he was promoted to 2nd Sergeant. Higgins was captured at Fort Harrison, Virginia on September 30, 1864, and was finally released at Point Lookout, Maryland, on June 27, 1865. Mamie Yeary�s 1912 classic, Reminiscences of the Boys in Gray, 1861-1865, contains the following account by Higgins: 'An 8-inch mortar shell dropped in our company on the 27th of June, 1864, and killed Robert Stewart and wounded eleven others, two others besides myself escaping. In the battle of Drewry's Bluff four of us were behind a small tree, ten inches in diameter, and all were wounded except myself. In the battle of Ocean Pond I had the bark knocked off of a tree into both eyes. I shifted my position and lay down behind an old stump, when a ball came through and struck me in the breast, but had spent its force and did not hurt me. I could relate many other narrow escapes, but this will be enough.' Higgins married Loisa J. Hale in Georgia (in the 1880 Dade County, Georgia census her name is shown as July L.). When they came to Texas, they settled first for a time in Johnson County, then came to the White's Chapel community and bought a farm later owned by William P. Mitchell. In 1895, he lived on the H. Granberry survey in present-day Southlake, north of Big Bear Creek along the east side of White's Chapel Boulevard, a few yards northeast of the intersection of White's Chapel and Continental Drive.
He was a member of the Robert E. Lee Camp of United Confederate Veterans at Fort Worth, and received the Southern Cross of Honor in 1908. His wife, J. Louisa (Hale). Higgins, was born July 24, 1836 and died April 23, 1919. Higgins named one of his sons Albert Sidney Higgins after Confederate general Albert Sidney Johnston. Higgins died February 23, 1924, and was buried at White's Chapel. Higgins' obituary in The Grapevine Sun contradicts some of the statements he himself made: 'Pioneer Citizen Dies. John W. Higgins was born in Hamilton County, Tennessee Feb. 5, 1841, lived in Georgia for a time, and came to Tarrant County, Texas in 1881. He was one of the early settlers of this section. He was active in the civil life of our county. He served as commissioner of Precinct 3 for 8 years. His wife, J. L. Higgins, died April 23, 1919. Three sons and two daughters survive. They are Bob Higgins, Ed Higgins, Sid Higgins, Mrs. Harriett Blevins, and Mrs. Matilda Brown. One other son, James Gordon, died in childhood and there are ten living grandchildren. Mr. Higgins served with distinction in the civil war under General Robert E Lee in the 8th Georgia Regiment, Company B. He died at the home of his son, Ed, February 24, 1924. Age 83 years and 18 days. After services held at the White's Chapel church by Rev. C. O. Hightower, Pastor of the Grapevine Methodist Church, his body was laid to rest by the side of the remains of his wife in the White's Chapel Cemetery.
