"...The battle of Weldon Railroad was fought on the 18th and 19th of August. This was the battle in which our Company plucked the most brilliant feather for the cap of its history. In this we captured Brigadier General Rutherford B. Hayes, now President of the United States, with Lieutenant Brady, one of his Aide-de-camp. They surrendered themselves, their swords, side-arms, and horses to 4th Sergeant Richard H. Powell, and were by him conducted to General Colquitt. Major James M. Culpepper, in command of the Regiment, then made a bold sortie at the head of about fifty men, and succeeded in capturing Hayes’ entire brigade; but failed to bring them off as prisoners. They soon discovered the weakness of their captors, and the blunder they had made in surrendering, and endeavored to turn the scale by capturing Culpepper. He succeeded, however, in effecting his escape with his men and a few prisoners, and in bringing off, with his own hands, three stands of colors, and the sword of the officer next in command after the surrender of Hayes." ---Wendell D.

"This was the battle [Weldon Railroad Aug. 18-19] in which our Company plucked the most brilliant feather for the cap of its history. In this we captured Brigadier General Rutherford B. Hayes, now President of the United States, with Lieutenant Brady, one of his Aide-de-camp. They surrendered themselves, their swords, side-arms, and horses to 4th Sergeant Richard H. Powell, and were by him conducted to General [A.H.] Colquitt....

"On the 4th of September, Sergt. Richard H. Powell lost his right leg. A mortar shell from the enemy’s lines exploded between his feet breaking his leg just below the knee. It had to be amputated. This permanently disabled him from further active service during the war. This gallant soldier was, as he justly deserved, several times recommended for promotion, but from some unexplained cause, he never received it." ---Wendell D. Croom (1878)

6th Georgia Regiment Info

More CSA Units


6th Infantry Regiment was organized at Macon, Georgia, in April, 1861, and soon moved to Virginia. Its companies were recruited in the counties of Bibb, Crawford, Butts, Baker, Twiggs, Gilmer, Taylor, and Mitchell. Assigned to General Rains' Brigade, the regiment totalled 703 men in April, 1862, and was active at Williamsburg and Seven Pines. Later it transferred to General Colquitt's Brigade and remained under his command for the balance of the war. The 6th served with the Army of Northern Virginia from the Seven Days' Battles to Chancellorsville, then was ordered to North Carolina, South Carolina, and Florida where it fought at Olustee. During the spring of 1864 it returned to Virginia, participated in the conflicts at Drewry's Bluff and Cold Harbor, and endured the battles and hardships of the trenches of Petersburg. Sent to North Carolina the unit saw action at Bentonville and surrendered with the Army of Tennessee. It lost 38 killed, 167 wounded, and 3 missing during the Seven Days' Battles and reported 43 casualties at Chancellorsville and 61 at Olustee. The field officers were Colonels Alfred H. Colquitt and John T. Lofton; Lieutenant Colonels Charles D. Anderson, William M. Arnold, Wilde C. Cleveland, Sampron W. Harris, and James M. Newton; and Majors James M. Culpepper and Phil Tracy.
