Notes


Colonel George P. Harrison (1841-1922)
Harrison's Brigade


Finegan's second brigade, consisting of the Thirty-second Georgia, Sixty-fourth Georgia, First Georgia Regulars, Twenty-eighth Georgia Artillery Battalion, First Florida Battalion, and the Georgia Light Battery, was commanded by Colonel George P. Harrison. This young officer, still one month short of his twenty-third birthday, had already established a solid military reputation.


In January 1861, while a student at the military institute at Marietta, Georgia, he took part in the capture of Fort Pulaski and was commissioned a second lieutenant in the First Georgia Regulars. After serving in Virginia during the winter of 1861-1862, Harrison returned to Georgia and took command of the Fifth Regiment of Georgia State Troops.


Harrison then organized and was appointed colonel of the Thirty-second Georgia Infantry, a regiment he commanded throughout the 1863 siege of Charleston. During the defense of the city Harrison and his unit were stationed at various locations, including James Island, Fort Johnson, Morris Island, John's Island, Fort Sumter, and Fort Wagner. At Fort Wagner he contributed significantly to the bloody repulse of the July 22, 1863, Union attack. Despite his age, by early 1864 Harrison had developed into a seasoned combat commander, displaying the aggressiveness of youth and strong leadership traits, coupled with coolness under fire. As yet untried in commanding a brigade in battle, few doubted that he would continue to maintain his solid reputation.


Harrison commanded the second Confederate infantry brigade at Olustee. It consisted of the First Florida Battalion, First Georgia Regulars, 28th Georgia Heavy Artillery Battalion (also known as Bonaud's Battalion and serving as infantry), 32nd Georgia, 64th Georgia, and Guerard's Battery. The brigade suffered official casualties of 50 killed, 406 wounded and four missing.


After a competent performance at Olustee, Harrison continued in brigade command for the rest of the war. Although some works cite him as him as being promoted to brigadier-general in 1865, he apparently was never formally advanced to that rank. In the post-war years, Harrison worked as a lawyer in Alabama.

"With regard to General Harrison's promotion to brigadier-general, I would like to point out that Lt. Col. Charles Colcock Jones, in his "Roster of Confederate General Officers," cites an order with the date of rank of February 7, 1865. If this is correct, General Harrison was the third youngest general officer of the Confederate Army."


Spouses:
Fannie Mary Drake (Wife) Marriage: 21 APR 1863 in Thomaston, Upson County, Georgia, by Rev. W. C. Bass
Children: Harrison


Mattie Ligon (Wife) Marriage: 1886
Frances Louise Witherspoon (Wife) Marriage: 1896
Sarah Katherine Nunnally (Wife) b. 1869 Marriage: 20 NOV 1900


Thirty-second Georgia Infantry


The Thirty-second Georgia was Harrison's most experienced infantry unit. Organized at Savannah by Harrison in 1862, the regiment had been engaged heavily during the siege of Charleston in 1863, particularly in the defense of Battery Wagner. There the brigade was rushed to Morris Island and was engaged at the end of the attack by surging over the southeast bastion killing or capturing any Yankees who still remained.


At Olustee the Thirty-second was commanded by Major W. T. Holland. The regiment flanked the Union right and Colonel Harrison credited two companies from the Thirty-Second with capturing three pieces of Union artillery. It suffered the highest loss of any Confederate unit, with an official casualty total of fifteen killed and 149 wounded.


After serving in Florida, the Thirty-second returned to the defenses around Charleston. The unit also participated in the Savannah Campaign before surrendering in North Carolina in 1865.

"In 1860, 307,579 bales of upland, and 6,505 bales of sea island cotton, foreign - valued at $17,210,168. 6,790 tierces of rice, foreign - valued at $148,300. 20,723,350 feet of lumber, foreign - valued at $400,151. Total value of exports to foreign ports, $17,798,922.


In 1861, 1862, 1863 and 1864 the port was blockaded, consequently there were no exports or imports during these years, excepting what was run through the blockade, of which no account can be given.


In 1865 the exportations (the property of the Confederate States and of the citizens of Savannah) was carried on exclusively by the officers and men of the United States government in its ships. United States officers, late in December, 1864, seized all the cotton and numerous other articles (whether the property of the Confederate government or of the citizens mattered little) and shipped the cotton to New York and the other plunder to their northern homes.


1 - After the fall of Savannah Sherman's army, numbering about seventy-five thousand men and an enormous number of animals, remained for a month or two within or near the city limits. During the months of February and March the scavenger department, organized by the United States authorities, moved from the interior of the city proper five hundred and sixty-eight dead animals, eight thousand three hundred and eleven cart loads of garbage, and seven thousand two hundred and nineteen loads of manure. To these accumulations of deleterious material may be attributed the sickness of that period."
