14. [from page 13, Gen. Braggl was put in command of the western army. He first placed the army at Cumberland Gap Tennesse. He later on taken [took] a trip into Kentucky. The Northern Army was too strong. He had to retreat. The army got back into Tennessee. My brother [was] taken [by] Pneumonia and died at (Lanoirs) station (Tennesse) in Dec 1863 was buried at (Lanoirs Sta). Weldon Barnett, the youngest one of the Miles Barnett Fanlily was born on the 22 of April 1847. [He] went to school some while small [and] worked on [the] farm unitl [he was] 17 years old. [At 17] he joined the Southern Army Company A 42nd Regiment of Ga Voluntiers which was located at Dalton, Ga at that time which was in the year 1864. The third day after he was mustered into service he was sent out on the picket line between the northern and southern armies. [He or Il saw no Yankees that day. In about two weeks the Yankees commenced to advance or' the Southern Army. We were placed on Rocky Face Mountain, north of the state railroad 3 miles west of Dalton, Ga.

15. The Western Army was under command of General Jospeh E. Johnson. The Northern Army was under Gen. Sherman. Johnson's plan was to fall back at night and build brestworks and fight till the Yankees would make a flank movement. Sherman's plan was to try to cut us off and get to Atlanta first. General Hood was put in command because Johnson said it was useless to try to hold Atlanta. There were many hard and bloody battles faught between Dalton and Atlanta [and I] don't remember how many. Our losses were great at Resaca But on Saturday and Sundays [Sunday] we drove the Yankees back 2 miles. On Saturday [my unit] was ordered to advance on then] on Sunday PM [evening.] [We] had to go across a creek and farm. The Yankey was in the edge of woods. On the South East side of [the] farm the 42[nd] Regiment was in plain open view. We lost 110 men. We was gone (from) over 10 months.

16. I was taken sick a few days after the Resaca battles [and] put on a flat car and sent to Atlanta. [I] was put off under the car shed. A lady, a Mrs. Carroll, a neighbor noticed me and helped me to go to a Mr. (Buchan) on Decatur Street not far from the car shed. She wrote to may father [and] he came and got (]ease) of Dr. Westmoreland, the hospittle doctor, to carry me home. I soon recovered [and] I tried to get back to my comand. The Yankies had got nearly all around Atlanta by that time. I had to go down to Stone Mountain and back up between Decatur and Jonesboro. My Command was near the Sandtown Road southwest of Atlanta. I learned that Stoneman's raid, a force of Cavalmen [the Calvary] was near Lithona. So I returned back home. I got home about 10 o'clock at night. My father told me that there was a soldier, a Cavalry man, camped down below the horse lot. He said the yankee was camped at the Flint Hill old campground. So he carried me down to the camp, it being in an old (pinefie]d). [The] next morning I woke up first and saw a Yankey, a cavalry man. I went to the house [and] told my father that [I] had slept with Yankee.

17. He told me to go across the farm to the large (canebreak) north of the plantation. It was about 6 o'clock when I went into the (canebreak) with very little to eat. I staid in there till about dark the next day [when] my father found me. About Sundown he went with me to a neighbor's house, Mr. (R.S. Eadais), who had got home that day. The neighbor and I staid in the woods in daytime and at home at night for about ten days. [We] finally made our way back to our command. They [were] still in [the] line of battle [which] was Sandtown Road. During the time of my coming home and return to [the] army, my mother had taken sick and died. She was buried at the Barnett family graveyard in Gwinnett Co., Ga. My mother was a devoted Christian. [She was] loved by all who new [knew] her. She was buried in July 1864 [at] age 64 years old. We were near enough to the enemy for (commanding) by both armies each day. Some days by small arms [ armys ] .

18. The western Army was under the command of [Gen.] Bragg in the campaign into Kentucky. Then [it] was placed under General Pemberton who carried the (army) into Miss[issippi]. [They] fought several hard battles; Baker's Creek and Bull Run and others. Finally taken [we took] a stand in Vicksburg and finally deserted and went north. The Yankies captured the Southern Army. [When] they paroled then they went home. [They] staid 60 days and organised under Joseph E. Johnson. That was in the fall of (1867) before I joined the Army in April 1864. A few day's after I got back after my spell of sickness the yankies set Atlanta on fire and left going South. We met them the next day near Jonesboro Ga. The 42nd Regiment went down the railroad to the edge of town and filed to the right and struck the Yankie lines near the Babb Farm. We went through a piece of woods [and] come to a cleared patch of ground 200 yds. South of a 2 room log house.

19. The Yankies was in 2 lines of battle. We were in plain view. We fired and fell to the ground. We fired several rounds. When the smoke got so thick that the Yankees could not see us, we was ordered to fall (back) to Jonesboro. The Yankees did not try to advance on us. It was nearly night [when] the yankeys passed on the west side of Jonesboro and went on towards Macon. Our loss was heavy. Lieutenant B.F. Goldstone was killed and over 100 other men was killed or wounded in the Jonesboro battle. Sherman, on his way to Savanna[h] Ga, did awful dammage taking every thing in the way of horses and mules, cows, sheep, hogs, chickens, geese, turkey, and ducks that they could find and every thing in the way of provisions and crops. [Gen.] Hood moved the Southern Army near McDonough. [He] went into camps [and] staid there several day's [arid] thenstarted on his trip to Nashville, Tennessee. We went by way of Rockmount, Cave Springs, Gadsden and across Sand Mountain...

20 .... and on to Flourance Ala. [We then] crosses the Tennesse River. A Yankee force of [? could be '75' or 'officer' ?] into the Southeren Army at Spring Place. The Southern troops routed them. They fell back. The next battle was at Franklin, Tenn. [We] had a terrible battle there. The Yankees fell back into a fort that was across the turnpike road at the e[d]ge of Franklin. Our men charged up to the embankment. The two armies fought across that embankment of dirt for 3 hours. Finally the yankees that had not been killed surrendered to the Southern troops. I could have went from one end of that fort to the other on either side and steped on a deadman at each step. The yankess fell back to Nashville and was evacuating the place but Hood got the Southern Army in site of Nashville and formed a line of battle and put the Army to building brestwork[s]. When, the yankeys saw what was going on they went to reinforcing and in about two weeks they advanced on the Southern troops. There had been a lot of snow and rain. They came on us where (I) was at in 3 lines of battle.

21. This July 2(O)th 1931. [< located at top of page]. 2 lines of Negroes and one of white. We was ordered not to fire till they got within 30 yards of us. We drove them back twice. Almost literally covered the ground with, dead and wounded Negroes. The ground had been covered with snow for several days before the battle. The day before the battle it set in to raining. It melted the snow and thawed the ground. The Yankies advanced on our left and broke to fall back[. T]he 42 Regiment... [Starting on page 21 and to the end; Weldon used smaller sheets of paper. Consequently this and the remaining paragraphs will be shorter. ]

22 .... was on the extreme right and extreme (left) to the river. There was a hill to our left that protected us from bomb shells that came from Fort Nagly, a Yankey fort. The shells that passed over that hill went about 10 feet above our brestworks. A bomb shell struck a tree in front of me and exploded a piece of shell about as large as a half of a goose egg struck me on the right thigh. It deadened my leg for several minutes. We had to give...

23 .... up our position and fall back towards Franklin. We would fall back sometimes a mile or more and form a line of battle to hold the Yankies in check till those that we relieved could fall back and form a line to protect us. The Southern Army killed and captured hundreds of Yankies as we fell back from Nashville to Mussle Shoals on the Tennessee River. The road we traveled from Franklin to Mussel Shoals crossed Shoal creek about five miles form the river.

24. The government had put in a monstrous dam at Mussel Shoals. The water at the road where we crossed Shoal Creek is 40 feet deep. In coming out from Nashville, I lost my shoes. That eavening [evening] the ground had thawed. That being a limestone country, we sometimes (mired) up to our knees almost. I went bare foot to Ocolona, Miss. There [I] got a pair of shoes and socks. I then went back to my command which was camped near (iuea). In about 2 weeks, the Army...

25 .... was ordered to go to the railroad to get aboard of the train to go to Virginia. I got left in Miss. near Ocolona. i joined the Army wagontrain [and] got charge of a 4 mule team. My wagon was head (quarter rashion,) wagon. I had plenty to eat & drove through Miss., Ala and to Thomaston, Ga. There I got a ten days leave of absence to come by home and get clothing. I walked from Thomaston to my fathers home near Norcross, Ga.

26. I learned that President Davis had ordered the soldiers that was cut off form their commands to join, General Wofford who was recruiting officer stationed at Atlanta, Ga. I joined Captain Rollin's Co., Colonel Carroll's Regiment, [and] Woffard's Brigade. We camped out on the Peachtree Road near Peachtree Creek about a month. Wafford got word that there was a force of Yankies at Marietta on their way to Atlanta. Wofford ordered his men to move towards Marietta.

27. We got as far as Kinston [and] got the news that Lee had surrendered. Wotford surrendered at Kingston. I walked home about 50 miles. The Negroes had all staid at home. My father had two young mules and one old yankey mule. My father told the Negroes if they would stay on and make a crop he would give them part of the crop. They all staid on. My neighbor, Mr. Adair, had a horse he did not need. He let me have it. I made a crop of corn and cut some hay and bought a suit of clothes.
