Carmical Eason

Letter From George H. Carmical From Commerce, Georgia, About Actions 8th Georgia Infantry at First Manassas.

A LITTLE MISUNDERSTANDING.-From George H. Carmical, of Commerce, Ga.: "In the March number of the VETERAN, (Page 118), J. T. Eason, of Houston, Tex., offers a correction of my statement (October VETERAN) that the 7th Georgia Regiment was the only command of Georgia troops which fought on the Henry House plateau, July 21, 1861. I stick to this statement, Comrade Eason. If you will refresh your memory of that day, you will remember that Colonel Bartow led the 8th Georgia across the Warrenton Turnpike, away from the Henry House plateau, to the assistance of General Evans, where it did some hard fighting. I have no desire to detract from the 8th Georgia a single honor it earned that day. Notice my language."
