This is from a long article about the Battle of Pensacola, November 23, 1861-
"...There is no abatement in the city excitement, and every now and then a shout from citizens and soldiers falls on the ear.
Preparations are making by some to send their sick families up the road. No fears are entertained of the enemy's success.
Col. John R. Jackson commands here, having the Fith Georgia Regiment, Capt. Homer's Battery, Capt. Cox's Cavalry, and
a battalion of Home Guards under him."
