he had gone to see Gen. Zollicoffer and had secured the promise of a detail of Lieutenant with twenty men, but Mr. Branner, President of the East Tennessee railroad, induced the General to suppose that Mr. Butler and his friends were unduly alarmed, and he had failed to furnish the guard as promised.

Soon after the tragic event Mr. Butler secured subscriptions amounting to $1,600, bought a good farm of ninety acres in the country, but Keelan was not satisfied there. He became very fearful that his life was in jeopardy and he staid with Maj. Stringfield's command in the army for a year or so. Subsequently, his little farm was sold and a smaller place was purchased near Bristol, where he died a few months ago.

Comrade A. S. McNeil, of Bristol, has acknowledged gratitude of the VETERAN for his zeal in behalf of honor due the faithful Keelan.

No wonder Keelan's courage went down after the awful night when, with his own blood and brain flowing over his face and mouth, he felt he had given his life for the South. He had no negroes to fight for, he afterward realized himself a cripple, almost helpless, and that the bridge did not remain "saved."

Tennessee and Virginia might well unite in building a monument to his heroism and locate it at Bristol on the state line.




The unfortunate and desolated Confederacy did not have a more faithful and consecrated soldier. Distinguished and merited honors fell to his lot, and were freely bestowed by his admiring comrades. His time, his money, his influence, and the martial spirit that was in him, all went for the support and defense of that which seemed a righteous and sacred cause in his sight, and in the sight of the people whom he served. After the war his manly, civic virtues shone as resplendent as his deeds on the fiuld of battle.

One of the most popular veterans in the western part of Dixie was the late Gen. Henry McCulloch, of Texas, who died March 12, 1895.

He was a native of Rutherford county, Tenn. His father, Major Alexander McCulloch, who was Aid de Camp to Gen. Coffee, under “Old Hickory, was a Virginian.

Gen. McCulloch was educated in Tennessee, but in his young manhood went to Texas (1837). He was elected Sheriff of Gaudalupe county in 1843; a inem ber of the Texas Legislature in 1353, and two years later, a State Senator. He served as United States Marshal from 1859, until Texas seceded from the Union. In the war with Mexico, 1846-8, he was Captain of a company of Texas Rangers.

In 1861, he was made Colonel by the Texas Legislature, and by the Confederate Government. He promptly secured the surrender of fortifications in Northwest Texas. In August of that year, he was made Brigadier-General, and organized troops for a campaign in Arkansas and Missouri. He served in important capacities throughout the war. The Seguin Anchor pays this tribute to him:

Away back, when defenseless women and children in the primitive homes of Texas called for protection, Henry McCulloch was found on horseback facing the red man. Before our cities were built, before our railroads and telegraph wires were stretched, when the line of advancing civilization was east of the Mississippi, the McCullochs were fighting in defense of the homes of the western pioneers, and the impress of their strong characters was upon hundreds of young men who grew up at that period.

Judge W. M. Ives, Lake City, Fla., makes the following correction in his recent article :

The Fourth Florida was made up of companies from every section of Florida-and not alone from East Florida, as is printed in the April VETERAX.

I see that Capt. Robert Knickmeper, is Commander of Camp Thomas Moore, at Apalachicola. He was Captain of Company B, and served gallantly in (I believe) every battle in which that regiment fought. PUBLICATION DAY-ANNOUNCEMENT!
