From Marcia X43R2Z8@aol.com 17 Mar 2003: "The following article appears in my North & South Magazine (excerpt)
In the final weeks of June 1864, General Robert E. Lee ordered the newly appointed commander of the Department of Richmond, Lieutenant General Richard S. Ewell, to blockade the James. Lee's letter to Ewell has been lost, but we can infer from what later occurred that he told Ewell to employ for this task the two artillery battalions commanded by Lieutenant Colonel Thomas H. Carter that had been left behind by Early's Second Corps. He assigned the job of protecting the artillery to Brigadier General Martin Gary's cavalry brigade. It is not clear precisely when Lee issued these orders, whether he ordered Ewell to blockade the river above City Point or below it, or what he hoped the blockade would accomplish?


On the night of June 28 Carter placed the four 20-pound Parrots of Captain Archibald Graham's Rockbridge Battery behind entrenchments at the base of New Market Heights, where they could shell the side wheel steamer U.S.S. Hunchback, whose post was directly below the pontoon bridge linking Jones Neck and the Federal bridgehead on the north bank at Deep Bottom.


June 29th, after fighting all day, Carter moved Graham's battery about half a mile to Tilghman's Gate, a position somewhat nearer to the river. The next day, June 30, Commandeer Ed Nichols brought his own ship Mendota and a second vessel, Agawam, to Deep Bottom. The ships opened a heavy crossfire on the earthworks Graham had previously occupied, but ceased when there was no reply. That afternoon a French civilian informed Lieutenant Fyffe of the Hunchback that the battery had shifted its position to Tilghman's Gate, another good position for firing on transports on the river. Fyffe passed the news on to Nichols, who ordered him to steam down river to below Tilghman's Wharf, and if the Confederates were nearby to remain there. Fyffe took up his position and opened fire on Graham's battery, which replied twice and then fired fifteen or twenty shells at General Foster's camp at Deep Bottom. The Confederates again shifted position that night.


Despite Rear Admiral Lee's fears that Carter's artillery would force the evacuation of Deep Bottom, the fighting of June 20-30 revealed that Carter's guns were no match for the much larger guns of the Union navy. They could do no more than annoy the enemy, and the Union shells were a great danger to the lighter Confederate guns. Instead of providing Carter with larger guns, General Lee sent Ewell a sharp telegram:


"I had hoped that Colonel Carter would have been able to have annoyed, if not injured, his transports on the river, and think that by the use of a four-gun battery, composed of pieces most suitable for the purpose, . . . . and operating in conjunction with Gary's cavalry, he may do them great damage"


Lee also ordered Ewell to "drive the enemy from the north bank" of the James.
On July 9 Ewell replied to Lee's letter. He reported that he had found several sites suitable for placing torpedoes in the James, and had also located suitable positions for Carter's artillery at George Pickett's plantation near Turkey Island and at Haxall's Landing, but that he and Colonel Carter did not wish to establish batteries at either place because this would interfere with the harvesting of the crops. The troops were consuming the crops as fast as they were being harvested, and the several thousand bushels still growing were desperately needed.


Ewell suggested another site, Wilcox's Landing - an ideal spot because the banks were high and could be approached without detection, and the deep channel of the river was within easy range of their cannon, only two to three hundred yards from the banks. A shallower channel was eight hundred to one thousand yards distant. Ewell stressed the fact that a blockade at this point would cut off all Union supplies destined for City Point and that a strong force would be able to hold the spot, whereas Carter's guns would be driven off after only one day. He asked Lee whether he wanted to employ heavier guns and a strong force of infantry.


In light of Lee's failure to provide the heavy artillery and infantry forces necessary for blockade, Ewell had no choice except to continue the harassing attacks under Colonel Carter, while striving to provide Bryan with boats, oars, and men. Carter's area of operations initially shifted from Deep Bottom down river to sites that allowed him to blockade the river below City Point - Haxall's Landing and Wilcox's Landing. On July 13, under Ewell's direction, Colonel Carter's artillery resumed its attacks on gunboats. That day, Carter proceeded to Walker's farm at Wilcox's Landing with Major Wilfred E. Cutshaw's artillery battalion, consisting of five 12-Pounder Napoleons, three 3-inch guns, four 20-Pounder Parrots, and a Whitworth gun. At the same time, General Gary scouted the river bank down river, near Rowland's Mill and Charles City Court House, to determine whether troop transports were on the river. Gary learned that no transports had appeared since the 11th, and that the river was usually quiet, but Carter resolved nevertheless to wait.


Positioning the artillery at 4:00 p.m., Carter had only to wait an hour and a half before two vessels hove into view, one a passenger steamer, the other a freighter. Carter's shells struck the freighter repeatedly, but the passenger steamer escaped damage by turning around and returning to Fort Powhatan - albeit under a barrage of shells from the Whitworth gun. That night the Confederates withdrew to Phillips' farm, six miles distant, where they encamped.
The next day Carter posted the Whitworth gun at Malvern Hill and Graham's four 20-Pounder Parrotts nearby. At 1:10 p.m. the rifled Whitworth opened fire on U.S.S. Pequot, the first shot taking off a sailor's leg and doing some damage to the vessel. Pequot was initially unable to reply because she was close to shore, the tide was at its ebb, and Lieutenant Commander S. P. Quackenbush could not maneuver his vessel to bring her guns to bear. Under continuous fire she got underway, steamed up the channel, and turned around. Quackenbush then opened fire, but the Confederates refused to reply. Quackenbush returned to his anchorage.


Meanwhile, one of Carter's batteries opened fire on the Commodore Morris, anchored at Haxall's Landing. Acting Master R. G. Lee steamed a quarter mile upriver until within one thousand yards of the guns and opened fire with his 100-Pounder Parrott, aiming at the Confederates' muzzle flashes. The shells failed to explode, so he turned his vessel around and fired with his 9-inch Dahlgren smoothbore. When the rebel battery changed position, so did Lee, and the duel continued until 5:00 p.m., at which time the Union ship returned to its anchorage. Lee was hampered by defective shells for his Parrott, only one in six exploding. Comodore Morris was not hit and sustained no damage.



On July 15 the belligerents rested, but on the following day Colonel Carter returned with Graham's battery to Tilghman's Gate. Early in the morning Generals Ulysses S. Grant, Benjamin Butler, and division commandeer Alfred H. Terry visited Deep Bottom, having come upriver on the gunboat Chamberlain to inspect the extensive earthworks.


In his report of the operations of July 13-16, Carter indicated that he proposed in future to use a single battery with cannoneers mounted on horses. He also suggested employing sharpshooters in woods along the bank of the James. and requested one hundred Enfield rifles. Although neither Ewell nor Carter admitted it publicly, the second attempt to close the James had failed. Carter lacked the big guns he needed to drive the Union warships away and was thus unable to close the river to transports.


The harassing raids along the James were over as well. On August 6, Colonel Carter submitted an account of his operations to date and proposed further action. The report has been lost, but Carter apparently planned a joint venture with Commander John K. Mitchell's James River Squadron against the Union shipping. But Mitchell fell ill and by the time he had recovered Carter had departed to a new assignment as chief of Jubal Early's artillery in the Shenandoah Valley. With Carter's departure, Confederate raids along James River ceased.
How successful had the Union measures to prevent the blockade of the river been? They had cleared the river of torpedos and blocked the creeks. Stationing gunboats at the narrow points of the river had ensured a quick response to Confederate attacks, and limited the damage to ships plying the river. They had made some progress in clearing trees, and had stationed pickets on shore and shelled houses and wooded areas suspected to contain Confederates. Using gunboats to convoy vessels upriver had also played a part. The Federals had made their greatest effort in the region of Turkey Creek and Wilcox's Landing, where the Confederates posed the greatest threat. But the issue was not yet decided when Colonel Carter was called away to the Shenandoah Valley. " Src: "War along the James" by Bryce A.

The only thing I have on Elizabeth Gotea is that she lived with Sarah North. Sarah North was Eleazer Morris' first daughter and his wife was Elizabeth. I don't know if Sarah Morris North's mother was Elizabeth Gotea or another Elizabeth. This Eleazer is my brick wall. But checking with the Huguenot society is a good idea. Eleazer's brother Robert married a Huguenot named Sarah. Maybe they have info on Robert's ancestry. Dorothy

Notes


Corporal James Harrison, served in the War of 1812 in Captain Fleman Hodges' Company, under Major William Russell's Separate Battalion Tennesee Volunteer Mounted Gunmen. He was mustered into service September 28, 1814 substituting for James Bailey and discharged March 27, 1815.


Horseshoe Bend, Alabama: A national battle monument, The US Park Service runs a very nice center here. The TN river makes a sharp (you might say, horseshoe) bend here. The Creeks had been split into two factions. One, the "red sticks" were for war with the US. The name "red stick" comes from the sticks that Tecumseh (allegedly) handed out to let the various tribes know when the time for war had come. The sticks were to be divided into 30 parts, and one part burnt each night. Fought the morning of 1814.


MAJOR WILLIAM RUSSELL: DESIGNATION: Separate Battalion of Volunteer Mounted Gunmen DATES: September 1814 - March 1815
MEN MOSTLY FROM: Franklin, Bedford, Blount, Madison (Ala.), Rutherford, Warren, and Wilson Counties.
CAPTAINS: William Chism, John Cowan, Fleman Hodges, George Mitchie, William Russell, John Trimble, Isaac Williams.
BRIEF HISTORY: Along with a battalion commanded by Major Chiles, this unit served in the Pensacola/Mobile region and was a part of Major Uriah Blue's expedition that roamed along the Escambia River in Florida in search of renegade Creeks toward the end of the war. Approximately 500 men served in this battalion, one of whom was David Crockett, a sergeant in Capt. John Conway's company.


From Fayetteville, where the battalion was mustered in, they traveled to Fort Stephens (crossing the Tennessee River at Muscle Shoals); leaving their horses behind, the battalion marched to Pensacola (via Fort Montgomery) where they participated in the battle of 7 November 1814; and returned to Fort Montgomery. At Fort Montgomery they were put under the command of Major Uriah Blue."

"One of Harvey's bros must have been John C. Harrison, who shows in wills & adms 10-28-1847, with Harvey Harrison as adm with securities Joseph Harrison and Joseph H. Bell, who was son of Paris Dooley Bell, bro of Zilpha."


James Harrison was administrator of the estate of John C. Harrison in Limestone Co., AL October 1847, inventory at his house was a Watch and a Horse and two slaves. James was administrator of the estate of William W. Harrison of the same county in 1853. James is listed in the household of daughter, Jane Sloan, in the 1870 census.

A Family cemetery was located on the Harrison property on HWY 72 before it was sold in 1900, late owned by the French Family. The gravestones were removed by the French's abt 1970. Mr. French denied the existence of the cemetery, but many citizens and descendants remembered the site of the old graveyard. In 1995, Wal-Mart planned a new super store on the site. Josephine Lindsay Bass, a descendent of James & Elizabeth Harrison, when advised by Betty Lindsay Taylor of the project, immediately contacted Wal-Mart and stopped the sale. With the assistance from the AL State Attorney's Office, the 38 graves were properly removed by an archaelogical team from Tuscoloosca and properly re-buried in the Athens City Cemetery. A new Wal-Mart is now built on the Old Harrison Farm.


James lived on a farm located near the intersection of HWY 31 and 72 and had a cotton gin.


Gins: Horses and mules usually furnished power for cotton gins. Equipped with only one gin stand (saws) and cotton had to be carried in basket up to gin stand and fed from basket. It was then taken from stand to the press in baskets. The press room stood some distance away from the gin. The press screws were made out of white oak logs and it was a very tedious job to cut threads on log and then cut another set of treads to fit. Took almost a year to build a gin. Power for the gin stand was furnished by a very elaborate set of wooden cogs operating from shaft turned by mules. These cogs geared up the power and transmitted it to stand by belt. The gin toll was usually 1/12th of gross seed cotton. There was a big water wheel gin on Big Creek at mouth of Elk river. Turbine wheel furnished power to saw lumber, gin and grind.


Farming: Planted corn about April 1st, cotton last of April, wheat in October. Corn laid by July 4th, cotton first of August. Put hay and fodder in August. Harvested wheat last of May to June 10th with cradle (scythe) with wooden attachment to catch wheat stalks. Raised all kinds of vegetables. Cotton was only crop that could sell. Raised horses and mules and sold them in Tennessee and Kentucky. Hogs would run loose in woods fed on acorns (mast). Would fatten them on corn. Barns were mostly log cribs covered with boards. Plowed with single stocks with wooden moldboards. Plows had iron points. Cut stalks with weeding hoe, raked up and burned. Cotton planted on hill land, made very small stalks. Corn planted in bottoms. Wagons had wooden axles and spindles. First steel spindles after war.


Madison County was created by Mississippi Territory Governor Robert Williams on 1808 Dec. 13. Additional land was added until the county achieved its current form in 1824. The county was named for Pres. James Madison. The county is located in the north-central part of the state, bounded to the north by the State of Tennessee and to the south by the Tennessee River. The first white settlers entered the area in 1804. The area was previously inhabited by Cherokee and Chickasaw Indians. The county seat was established at Huntsville. Huntsville also served as the temporary State capitol in 1819. Today, Huntsville is the home of the Marshall Space Center. Other towns located in Madison County include New Market, Normal, Madison, Owens Cross Roads and New Hope.


Limestone County was created by an act of the Alabama Territorial General Assembly on 1818 Feb.6. It was formed from land comprising Elk County that was created on May 24, 1817. Limestone County is west of Madison County, north of the Tennessee River, and east of the western boundary line of range six, west of the basis meridian of the county. An act of the state General Assembly on 1821 Nov. 27 gave to the county all of the land belonging to Lauderdale County, in the fork of the Tennessee and Elk Rivers, east of range six. Today Limestone County is bounded on the north by the State of Tennessee, on the east by Madison County, on the south by Morgan and Lawrence counties, and on the west by Lauderdale County.


The name of the county comes from the creek which flows through it, whose bed is of hard limestone. Athens was chosen as the county seat in 1819. Other towns of note are Belle Mina, Elkmont, Capshaw and Mooresville. There is also a Limestone Co. in old Washington Co. E. TN.


The Name of Alabama comes from its chief river, the word being of Indian origin and unknown meaning. There is a poetic legend that an exiled Indian tribe reached the great river, and its chief struck his spear into the shore exclaiming, Alabama! - that is to say: "Here we rest." Fragments of the Alabama tribe now live in Texas and Louisana. Alabama is sometimes called THE COTTON-PLANTATION STATE.


The Arms of Alabama bear an eagle with raised wings, alighting upon the National shield, and bearing three arrows in his left talon. He holds in his beak a floating streamer, inscribed with the words HERE WE REST. This nobly patriotic device was adopted in 1868, to replace the older seal, a rude outline map of Alabama fastened to a tree.
