I have not seen reference to an engagement involving the 3rd Battalion, Ala. Reserves during Sept.-Oct. 1864, when it was attached to Liddell's and Baker's Brigade, Dist. of the Gulf. Below are some excerpts from Lieut. William V. Fleming's (Co. B) letters. Interestingly, his next letter dated Jan. 2, 1865, was from "Genl. Hospital, Greenville," but there is no indication if he was sick or wounded.
Blakeley, Aug. 22, 1864: "There is a good deal of excitement in camps this morning. We hear the cannon booming around us this morning. The prospect looks like we may have right hot times for a few days. The citizens have all left Mobile. I am camped on the river bank at Blakely but a part of the company is out on picket below opisite Mobile and I am expecting orders every minute to go to them. The Yankees are burning Fort Morgin every day and are at it at this time. We are getting along as well as could be expected… Direct your letter in this wise: Lt. W.V. Fleming, Blakely Ala., 3rd Ala. Reserve, cear of Capt. Litaker, Stricklin's Batalion."
Camp near Blakeley, Sept. 14, 1864: "I have been very sick but thanks be to God I am on the mend and gitting along as well as I could expect to do in camps… There is no chance for a furlough at this time."
Camp near Pollard, Oct. 20, 1864: "I am gitting bare for clothes and the weather is cool and what I have is very thin… If I cannot come you must bring them to me. You and mother can take the oxen wagon and come down to Pollard and stay at the old man Franklin's and bring a bushel of potatoes."
Camp near Pollard, Nov. 1, 1864: "I have been making out our muster rolls."
