Notes


Co. Aytch, A Confederate Memoir of the Civil War, Sam R. Watkins, 1882.


In May, 1861, twenty-one-year-old Sam Watkins of Columbia, Tennessee, joined the First Tennessee Regiment, Company H, to fight for the Confederacy. Of the 120 original recruits, Watkins was one of just seven to survive every battle. Watkins, who wrote this memoir twenty years later, was a natural storyteller who balances the horrors of war with an irrepressible sense of humor. Among Civil War memoirs, this is considered a classic. http://www.carnton.org/museum%20store.htm


"The Death Watch"
"One more scene I can remember. Kind friends-you that know nothing of a soldier's life--I ask you in all candor not to doubt the following lines in this sketch. You have no doubt read of the old Roman soldier found amid the ruins of Pompeii, who had stood there for sixteen hundred years, and when he was excavated was found at his post with his gun clasped in his skeleton hands. You believe this because it is written in history. I have heard, politicians tell it. I have heard it told from the sacred desk. It is true; no one doubts it.


Now, were I to tell something that happened in this nineteenth century exactly similar, you would hardly believe it. But whether you believe it or not, it is for you to say. At a little village called Hampshire Crossing, our regiment was ordered to go to a little stream called St. John's Run, to relieve the 14th Georgia Regiment and the 3rd Arkansas. I cannot tell the facts as I desire to. In fact, my hand trembles so, and my feelings are so overcome, that it is hard for me to write at all. But we went to the place that we were ordered to go to, and when we arrived there we found the guard sure enough. If I remember correctly, there were just eleven of them. Some were sitting down and some were laying down; but each and every one was as cold and as hard frozen as the icicles that hung from their hands and faces and clothing-dead!


They had died at their post of duty. Two of them, a little in advance of the others, were standing with their guns in their hands, as cold and as hard frozen as a monument of marble-standing sentinel with loaded guns in their frozen hands!



The tale is told. Were they true men? Does He who noteth the sparrow's fall, and numbers the hairs of our heads, have any interest in one like ourselves? Yes He doeth all things well. Not a sparrow falls to the ground without His consent."


From the book Co. Aytch, A Confederate Memoir of the Civil War by Sam R. Watkins, page 38- Copyright 1962 by MacMillan Publishing Company Copyright renewed in 1990 by Simon & Schuster Inc. Sam began to write of his experiences in 1881as a series for his hometown newspaper, the Columbia, Tennessee, Herald.

Another story from “Company Aytch”


My great great grandfather, Green Rieves was in “Company Aytch” and is mentioned twice in the book. His name is spelled Reives in the index but is spelled correctly in the text. I have four great great grandfathers who fought in the war and all four were from Maury County, Tennessee. Chuck Demastus


NATHANIEL GREEN RIEVES
Company "H" 1st Tennessee Infantry Regiment


Almost every soldier in the army-generals, colonels, captains, as well as privates-had a nickname; ...Green Rieves was called "Devil Horse"... (Sam R. Watkins, "Co. Aytch", c. 1962 Macmillan Publishing Co. (paperback) p. 71)


The Yankees seemed determined not to fight, no way we could fix it. Every now and then they would send over a "feeler," to see how we were getting along. Sometimes these "feelers" would do some damage. I remember one morning we were away over a hill, and every now and then here would come one of those lazy-looking "feelers," just bouncing along as if he were in no hurry, called in military "ricochet." They were very easy to dodge, if you could see them in time. Well, one morning as before remarked, Lieutenant John Whittaker, then in command of Company H, and myself were sitting down eating breakfast out of the same tin plate. We were sopping gravy out with some cold cornbread, when Captain W. C. Flournoy, of the Martin Guards, hallooed out, "Look out, Sam; look! look!" I just turned my head, and in turning, the cannonball knocked my hat off, and striking Lieutenant Whittaker full in the side of the head, carried away the whole of the skull part, leaving only the face. His brains fell in the plate from which we were sopping, and his head fell in my lap, deluging my face and clothes with his blood. Poor fellow, he never knew what hurt him. His spirit went to his God that morning. Green Rieves carried the poor boy off on his shoulder, and, after wrapping him up in a blanket, buried him. His bones are at Jonesboro today....Green Rieves was the only person at the funeral; no tears of a loving mother or a gentle sister were there. Green interred his body, and there it will remain till the resurrection.
(From: "Co. Aytch" by Sam R. Watkins c. 1962 Macmillan Publishing Co. (paperback) pp. 209, 210.)


Written twenty years after the war, Private Watkins gives his account of serving with Company H, First Tennessee Regiment. Of the 120 original men in the unit, Watkins was only one of seven left at the end.


REview from Amazon.com: Twenty years after participating in the war that reshaped American history forever, Sam Watkins sat down to write his memoirs, without benefit of journal or notes. He commenced his tale with a short, folksy parable of the cause of the war, as Southerners saw it. He then quickly launched into telling the tale as he viewed it - not from the heights of a general officer, but from the mud and dust covered ground-eye view of a common "webfoot" infantry soldier. In doing so, he created what is perhaps the best, most readable, and most compelling account of a Civil War infantry man that has ever seen print.
Watkins told his tale in an easy, conversational style. The book is not written as a single narrative, but as a collection of tales and memories, just as he might have told them to friends and family around his hearth. His antidotal style put side by side humorous tales and the horrors of war that he observed, showing how casual a thing gruesome death became to a soldier. He wrote with great feeling, telling the reader when recalling a particular incident left him overwhelmed with emotion still after twenty years, and constantly referencing his religious faith that he would someday see all of his fallen comrades again in a better world. He hid nothing of himself, and that candid emotion sets his book apart, and gives it its greatness.
This book is not a history, per say. Watkins constantly reminded his readers of this. It is a collection of impressions of what it was like to be one of the little men doing the shooting and killing - the men who history mostly overlooks. "Co Aytch" fills in the yawning gaps of how war is really fought and experienced that you will never find in any general's memoirs. This book is essential for a full understanding of the Civil War, and it is a pleasure and a joy to read. I highly recommend it.
