Overview
Excerpt from With the Light Guns in 61-65: Reminiscences of Eleven Arkansas, Missouri and Texas Light Batteries, in the Civil War

Up to the time of this movement, great hopes had been entertained that Totten would join the Southern cause. He and his officers were person ally very popular with the people of the city, who honored him signally on the occasion of his with drawal, by escorting him and his men to the steamer which took them to St. Louis.

A week or two later, the steamer Blue Wing, and other boats, were captured near the mouth of the Arkansas, laden with military supplies for Uni ted States forces in Arkansas and elsewhere. There was no telegraphic communication to the east, otherwise than via Memphis. Rumor said the boat had been sent up the Arkansas, but in what custody was unknown. As a precautionary step, the Totten Battery was ordered to take position near the Point of Rock, where the southern ap proach of the Fort Smith railroad bridge is now, and prevent her from passing the wharf on arrival. On her approach in a day or so from below, a shot across her bows arrested and brought her to. She was in charge of Southern men. Her cargo of valuable stores was housed by the State authori ties.
