    • CIVILIAN REACTION TO THE RED RIVER CAMPAIGN, 1864, FROM NATCHITOCHES
      TO MANSFIELD, LOUISIANA

      William Newton Whitton, seventeen years old, heard the battle from near the Sabine River. He had joined the Home Guard in San Augustine, Texas, the year before, along with "old men with long beards of various colors and boys too young to shave." The Guard had been ordered out "to take a stand and use guerrilla war tactics in case General Taylor and General Walker were not able to defeat the Federal forces at Ansfield or other places in that vicinity.
