Die 25th Indiana Infantry unter Col William E. Morgan war im Dezember 1862 mit der Sicherung der Eisenbahnbrücke der Central Mississippi Railroad über den *Wolf River beauftragt; als sich CS-MajGen Earl Van Dorn’s Raiders nach der Zerstörung des US-De­pots in *Holly Springs nach Süden zurückzogen, beabsichtigte Van Dorn die Trestle Bridge über den Wolf River zu zerstören. Dies scheiterte jedoch an der energischen Verteidigung durch die 250 Mann der US-Verteidigung, die aus vorbereiteten Verteidigungsstel­lungen, Blockhäusern und Gräben die vier Angriffe abwehrten; zudem hatten die Verteidiger die hölzernen Aufgänge zur Brücke ent­fernt hatten, wodurch beim vierten bis zum Fuß der Brücke durchgebrochenen CS-Angriff ein Anzünden der Brücke unmöglich ge­macht wurde (vgl. Longacre: Mounted Raids, a.a.O., S. 60).

- *Scribner, Benjamin F. (Col. 38th Indiana): How Soldiers Were Made (Blue Acorn, 316 pp, Index, Reprint of 1887 original). Scrib­ner relied on his field officer's experience in the 38th Indiana as well as his command of the 14th Corps as a General to write his me­moirs. He began his military career as a volunteer in the Mexican War and went on into the Civil War in the trenchs at Kennesaw Mountain. Overtaken by ill health during the Atlanta Campaign, he was forced to resign. He provides keen insight into how the enlist­ed men and officers evolved into veteran soldiers.
