S. O., at tbe time the Foreign Battalion was
enlisted from tbe prisoners there, and in wlmt
A—I was; I was acting as Ordnance Offi
cer on Col. Harrison's staff; Col. Harrison
commanded at Florence.
I was Informed as to the treatment of the
Union prisoners at Florence. They were
furnished the same rations as our own sol
diers. I was present when Brooks’ Battalion
was enlisted. Col. Harrison received orders
from General Jones to enlist men from the
stockade, and only to enli9t foreigners. We
asked every man that was enlisted his rea
sons tor enlisting, and whether he wa9 a
foreigner or not. We had them examined
by a doctor before taking them. Their rea
sons lor enlisting generally were, that the
United States Government would not ex
change them, and their terms of service were
They also said that they were fooled into
service. That they were often drugged and
found themselves eulisted on recovering.
They often made application to us to enlist.
We received applications every day. Often
after we bad enlisted them, on going back
into the stockade to get their blankets, their
fellow prisoners would maltreat them. A
good many of the police force of the camp,
who received extra rations, enlisted.
Q—How many prisoners were at Flor
A—There about 10,000 or 12,000 prisoneis
at Florence. About 500 enlisted.
Q—Were any promises made to them that
they would not be made to fight?
A—No, sir. They knew when thev came
out that that they had to go to the front.
y—Did they have opportunities to escape
after enlistment ?
A—Yes. sir. They were put in a camp ot
instruction with a guard of about four posts
around them, and were allowed to go out
about the country in squads of ten or twelve.
Q— Did they receive any better rations
after enlistment than before ?
A—No, sir. They received the same ra
Q.—By Judge*Advocate. What were the
rations given to the men from whom the
Foreign Battalion was enlisted ?
A —A pound of corn meal, a pound of
beef; and when they did not get beef, they
got a third of a pound of bacon ; and when
there was no meat, they had syrup; some
times a little beans or rice. The beans and
rice were extia.
Q,—What shelter did those prisoners have
from sun or rain ? I

built themselves. We intended to build
houses tor them, but they preferred to build
Q—You say that the policemen in the
camp were furnished extra rations. Did the
men who were enlisted receive the same ra

other prisoners ?
A—The same as the other prisoners. The
policemen had them stopped getting their
Q—Did your duties at Florence require
any familiarity with the commissary depart
ment ? If not, what opportunity did you
have for informing yourself with reference to
the matter upon which you testified ?
A—My opportunities were these the in

when I performed his duties. Also, being
at headquarters, all the papers passed
through my hands.

the oath of allegiance to the men enlisted

EVIDENCE OF WM. M. GIBBONS.
Wrn. M. Gibbons, witness for the defence,
was called and sworn. 1 am a clerk and re
side in Savannah.
I conducted Brooks’ Battalion to the lines
around Savannah. They were placed on
Lawton’s farm, five miles and a hall from
the city. There were no other troops there
at the time. They were the first troops sent
out there. They had many opportunities to
escape, as there were no other troops there;
only two or three commissioned officers. They
could easily have gone off through the woods
to the Union lines and no one would have
I conversed with about two-thirds of them
on their motives lor enlisting; once talked
with one of the witnesses here, whom I saw
this morning. He was a non-commissioned
officer in the Battalion. There were a good
mauy foreigners among them. They to!d me
it wa9 the Galvanized Yankees’ Battalion.
They told me they had volunteered in the
Confederate service. I asked one of them if
he was not ashamed to enter the Conlederate
army, and told him I did not believe he would
fight. He said his father was a strong Re
publican in Massachusetts or Connecticut,
but that be enlisted in the Federal army only
to get the bounty. I know nothing about
tbe trial in December, 1864.
Witness was dismissed.
EVIDENCE OF GEORGE A. MERCER.
George A- Mercer called. Am a lawyer by
profession- Reside in Savannah.
I was on the staff of tbe prisoner in De
cember, 1864, as Assistant Adjutant General.
Was ordered here from tbe Army of Tennes
see; went out with him ou the lines on the
9th ot December. On the night of tbe 15th
of December, the night of the alleged execu
tion, I was all night at the headquarters ot
the prisoner, the house on Lawton's farm,
about seven miles from the city. Neither
the prisoner nor my9elt left that'house from
dusk in the evening till daylight the next
Q—State what connection the prisoner had
with the alleged execution ?
A—The prisoner had no direct connection
with the execution whatever. The circum
stances were these:
Several days before, a battalion known as
the Foreign Battalion, was put by General
Hardee ou our line. On the 14th of Decem
ber some of tbe officers of that battalion re
ported that tbeir men were bcoming alarmed,
fearing that they would be summarilly dealt
with by General Sherman if they should be
captured in arms. The battalion was then
acting as a support to a battery of artillery.
This battery swept two of the largest rice
fields along the line.
Two of the pieces were maimed by de
tachments from this battalion, under Lieut.
Simpson. On tbe.night of the 14th, twenty
ot the battalion forced a picket ou one of
these dams and went over to General Sher
man's line. This fact w»9 reported to Gen.
Mercer on the morning of the Hlh, with the
statement lhat these men were-very much
afraid of being captured. It was the general
impression that we would all be captured
within a few days. Gen. Mercer, therefore,
directed me to issue an order, which I did,
that the battalion should be marched to tbe
city, with a view to enabling them to be re
moved from the city in the event of its cap
ture The men were so informed, and they
knew that the movement would be executed
We were afraid to move them during the
day in order not to attract the attention of
the pickets of the enemy, which were not
over 200 yards distant. The dams were but
slightly protected, and therefore they were
to be removed that night to prevent their
being seen by Gen. Sherman’s pickets.
Between eight and nine o’clock that night
several officers of the battalion came to our
headquarters and reported, with consider
able agitation, that they had just discovered
from members of this battalion, that the
great majority of the battalion, all I think,
with some few exceptions, had organized a
conspiracy, when tile order was given
them to fall in to march to the city, to seize
their arms and buck and gag their officers,
to kill all who resisted them or were obnox
ious to them, including Gen. Mercer and
staff, spike the guns on the fortifications, and
desert in a body to Gen. Sherman's lines,'
carrying all their officers uot killed. G.-u.
Mercer's senior colonel happened to he in the
room at itis headquarters at the time this re
port was made. He told him that it was a
moment of great peril, and that something
must be done to defeat the conspiracy,- and
that he must proceed to the camp of tbe
battalion and take such measures -as were
neceeary to that end.
Q— Who wa9 General Mercer’s senior col
A—Col. Brown, of the Local Brigade at
Augusta, acting Brigadier General at the
Q—Do you know anything of the execu
tion of those seven men of your own know
A—No, sir; only by report.
Q—Did General Mercer order the execu
Cl—Did he order the court-martial, or was
any report made of it to him?
A—He knew nothing of the court-martial*
till the execution was over.
Witness was dismissed.
Mr. Hartiidge, counsel for General Mercer,
here rose and said that the defence had in
tended to introduce a number of other wit
nesses, but that such was the paucity ot the
evidence elicited against the accused, that he
deemed it unnecessary to detain the Court
for that purpose, and would submit his case
The Judge Advocate announced that he
would do the same.
The doors ot the court were then closed-
After a very brief deliberation the Commis
sion came to a decision upon their findings m
the case and adjourned sine die.
The findings of the Court pannot be dis
closed until officially promulgated.
