Company B
William Henry Oakes - Private   
Private William Henry Oakes was documented as being conscripted at the age of 17 and served as a member of Company B. 3rd Battalion, Mississippi Cavalry Reserves. Family testimony says he supplied his own horse, but due to his age he served as a teamster (wagon driver) with the unit. This unit was primarily consisting of individuals from Attala County and was also known as Capt Meek's Company (Capt W.E. Meek). According to a report written by Jim H. Wallace, a well-known civic leader of the day in Attala County: "Captain Meek's Cavalry company was attached to General Nathan Bedford Forrest's Command, and under this dashing officer, they saw hard and active service." According to military records, Capt Meek's Company was assigned to Col Jules C Denis' Cavalry Brigade under Brig Gen Wirt Adams. During the last months of the war, this unit was assigned under Lt Gen Forrest. Several accounts of action have been found concerning this unit. One account was in late 1864, Denis's cav unit was assigned to chase Col Grierson's unit during another raid on the Ohio & Mobile railroad in 1864. NOTE: This is a different raid from what is known as the famous Grierson's raid on Newton Station in Mississippi as depicted in the John Wayne film 'The Horse Soldiers'. However, it is the same union unit and same concept just a year later in the war and a different location. Another mention of battles this unit could have participated in during the last year of the war were the battles of Concord Church (Dec 1 1864) and Wilson's Raid (Mar- Apr 1865). However, assuming this unit (Co B) was still assigned to Gen Wirt Adams (which one has to assume would still be the case) they also participated in a battle at Gainesville, AL. This battle was described as the last Confederate victory of the War East of the Mississippi. Below is an excerpt from papers of Gen Wirt Adams collection:
1.62: Letter from George Moorman to “Dear General” [likely sent to Brigadier General Wirt Adams], 4 May 1865
Scope and Content
Canton, Miss. 4pp. Moorman is seeking information on Adam’s location, as he has been unable to discover it after “several days” of searching. He
mentions that he has not heard from Adams since his victory at Gainesville and “that victory will reflect credit ion you in all time to come.” Moorman reflects on their future and past experiences, “While our political and military heavens were surcharged with tokens of the approaching story and our history already [illegible word] with accumulated disaster and defeats, you were the only general officer throughout the length and breadth of the Confederacy who plucked one singly bough of laurel and caused it to be entwined with the cypress wreath which now encircles us. Should the war cease now you would have the honor of having won the last victory on Confederate soil, & in the Confederate cause.” Moorman seems determined to continue though, “But I cannot give up something good will certainly turn up yet. I will never believe that we have failed until the conviction is forced upon me.” He asks to keep a wagon Adams had authorized for his use, as he “cannot hire anything here at all.” But he notes that he will not take the wagon until he hears from Adams. Penciled note, likely from Wirt Adams, on the last page of the letter reads, “Please send Capt. Coopers letter to him
immediately.”
