Colonel Everett Peabody
Upon his joining the forces under General Grant the command of a brigade under General Prentiss was assigned him, and on the field at the Pittsburg Landing he was acting brigadier on the exposed right of the army, nearest the enemy. To his alertness and bravery is in great part due the saving of our army on the field of Pittsburg.
