  5. T. Hurst remembers...

    ok...because the capt of the alice dean(#1) when Morgan captured her to use as a ferry to cross the ohio in july 1863 was Capt James Pepper. when Morgan was finished the alice dean was burned---there are parts of this packet boat in several museums ..last saw a piece in august in bradenburg ky(if any of yall have not visited this town is worth the trip!!) later a second packet was built and named alice dean. The McCombs was spared from burning as the owner was a good friend of Basil Duke. so far i can not find this gentleman but will continue to research.
  6. Why not just go?

    right...his orders were to wait .and so he did...i believe a bit earlier he got "into it" with Grant over sending some sick men back up north after he had sent them down to the hospital ship at pittsburg landing and they were immediately sent back d/t no room

  8. Why not just go?

    he would have come out behind the Confederate line of battle
  9. Why stay at Crumps?

    maybe to keep him at at distance...wallace had acted on his own decision earlier that made grant upset.
  10. West Point at Shiloh

    Wallace arrived at Crump 3-11-62 and was ordered by halleck to raid M&O between Bethel Stn and Corinth. He was to remain at Crump Landing for several reasons: 1- to guard over a large amount of supplies that were there 2-continue to watch the Confederate troops around Purdy 3-keep the river open so Grant will not get cut off 4-and to advance to Corinth on a different road
