a. Note:   [621189.FTW] Samuel Boone Bradley served The Confederate States of America as a Corporal in Co. H, 29th Texas Cavalry under The command of Col. Charles DeMorse, a newspaper man from Collin County. The regiment was trained at Camp Jeff Davis northeast of Clarksville and at Camp Sidney Johnston near Paris, and remained in Texas until The spring of 1863 to protect The settlements against The Indians to The west. In March 1863, DeMorse was ordered into Indian Territory in preparation for a Confederate offensive in The region. On July 17, 1863, The Confederates were attacked by The Federals at The Battle of Elk Creek or Honey Springs. This battle is also called tje Forst Battle of Cabin Creek. DeMorse's regiment bore The brunt of The attack. The 29th was The last of The Confederates to retire from The field, and then defended The Southern supply train until it was safely on The road. The loss of The battle was attributed to poor grade powder which would not fire in wet wheather. On April 18, 1864, Confederate Units, including The 29th Texas, attacked and captured a Federal forage wagon train at Poison Springs near Camden, Arkansas. 168 wagons, 1200 mules, a number of horses, and several pieces of artillery were captured. The Federal troops, from Kansas and Iowa, had The choice of facing The screaming Confederate troops to The front or a snake-infested swamp to The rear. Most of them chose The swamp and many died carrying loaded rifles. After The Confederate victory in Arkansas, DeMorse was ordered to return with his command to Indian Territory. The Texas Brigade, alternately under The command of DeMorse and R.M. Gano, confined its operation in Indian Territory to The interception of enemy supplies. The Second Battle of Cabin Creek occurred in Sept. 1864. In fourteen days from camp, The Texas Brigade marched over four hundred miles, engaged The enemy successfully four times, and at Cabin Creek succeeded in capturing or destroying one of The most valuable trains taken during The war. Besides The amount destroyed, The Texas Brigade and The Indian allies returned to camp with 130 wagons, 740 mules, enough clothing to make two thousand men comfortable, and valuable commissary supplies. The Confederates had captured or destroyed in The fourteen days an estimated total of $1,500,000 worth of property, bringing nearly one-third that amount back within their own lines. The command wintered at Marshall in 1864-65 and remained in Texas until The end in The Spring of 1865. His Great Grandfather was Samuel Boone, a brother of Daniel Boone. ******************* is NOT responsible for the content of the GEDCOMs uploaded through the WorldConnect Program.
