November 27, 1864―The
East Tennessee Campaign,
No. 26.--Report of Brig.
Gen. John W. Frazer, C. S: Army, commanding, forces at Cumberland Gap.
FORT WARREN, Boston Harbor, November 27, 1864.
The Sixty-fourth North Carolina Regiment was small, having been reduced by
desertions; at one time 300 in a body. The colonel and lieutenant-colonel had
left in disgrace for dishonorable conduct. (See muster-rolls and officers of
the regiment.) Major Garrett was left in command, but had been suspended by
the examining board for incompetency. I afterward restored him to command
temporarily, as I could find no one in the regiment any better qualified.
