Madison Perritt - Unknown   
Data from:

http://files.usgwarchives.org/la/bienville/bios/perrittm.txt

MADISON PERITT


Madison Perritt, cotton planter, miller and ginner, was formerly a well
known and respected resident of Claiborne Parish, but he is now a permanent
resident of Bienville Parish, La, and one of its best citizens. He was born
in Alabama on February 18, 1838, and his educational facilities were the
common schools where he received a practical education, which he afterward
improved by his own observation and study. He started out for himself
when he donned his suit of gray and shouldered his musket, enlisting in
company B, Twelfth Louisiana Infantry Volunteers, Scott's brigade, Loring's
division, Stuart's corps, Army of Tennessee. Mr. Perritt enlisted in the
spring of 1862, and was sent at once to Grenada, Miss. He took an active part
in the following engagements: Second battle of Corinth, siege of Port Hudson
(two weeks) Resaca, Dalton, Kenesaw Mountain, and all around the city of
Atlanta, Ga. He was in heavy fighting for about three months, and can relate
many interesting anecdotes which occurred while he served the confederacy.
His trials and vicissitudes during this war were very terrible indeed. Time
and time again has he made long weary marches when his bare feet were on the
ground and left the prints in blood. When he finished the terrible Georgia
campaign his regiment was ordered into Tennessee, and the first incident of
note was the capture of 300 'Yanks,' at Ackmoth and l50 more at Tilden.

Mr. Perritt relates many amusing incidents which occurred at the battle of
Nashville. It being his first introduction to that city, and relates them in
such an interesting way that it is a great treat to listen to him. From
Nashville they were ordered back to North Carolina, and the last engagement he
participated in was at Bentonville, of that state. Mr. Perritt has
experienced the terrible ordeal of war in all its phases. When in Mississippi
he was fifer of his regiment, and still has his old army fife. His regiment
was disbanded at Greensboro, N. C., on April 26, 1865, and when the news
reached him of the surrender ho was under detail as assistant surgeon.

Company M
Henry Clay Tanner - Private   
My great grand father enrolled at Camp Moore, Louisiana as a Private in Captain Benajah D. Owen's 'Farmer Rangers' recruited in Natchitoches Parish. By the summer of 1862, this company had dwindled in size and was consolidated with the 'Southern Sentinels' from Winn Parish into a new Company C. Present and accounted for through April 1863, he was part of a detail under Captain John A. Dixon (Company C) which was sent back to Vicksburg to escort ordnance supplies out to the regiment camped near Edward's Depot. With the defeat of the Confederate army at Champion Hill on 16 MAY 1863, these detail men were cut off from the regiment and trapped inside Vicksburg during the siege. They were surrendered with the garrison on 4 JUL 1863. The name that appears on his Vicksburg parole certificate is 'H. C. Tanner' and that is how he signed the certificate. The able bodied Vicksburg parolees were released on 10 JUL 1863 and most made their way across the Mississippi River to Louisiana and went home to await a declaration of exchange which would permit them to return to duty. Captain Dixon sent out word in early 1864 for the members of his detachment of Vicksburg parolees to report into parole camp at Vienna, Louisiana to be ready for exchange. A list of all who had reported before 1 APR 1864 was sent to the War Department in Richmond. Henry C. TANNER's name was on this list. These men were eventually declared exchanged and returned to duty at the end of the summer of 1864. He reported into the Federal parole center at Monroe, Louisiana and was released on parole 9 JUN 1865. He gave his place of residence at the time as Ouachita Parish, Louisiana.
