% To illustrate how confused organizations were at this time, one has only to consider that Col Hagood could not get his regiment organized and to Virginia for First Manassas. The ranks could not agree on a course of action and this was after all a democratic army (Not ever a good thing in military terms). Hagood's response was to go on "furlough" and head to Virginia. He carried with him two Lieutenants, a Sergeant, and several privates. They served with the Palmetto Guard of Kershaw's Regiment in the retreat from Fairfax and at First Manassas. It is a wonder that the Confederate Army ever got in the field as an organized force at all. The heart of the Celtics burned bright in these men... but it is no way to win a war... and a number of wars have been lost because of this bright flame of individual liberty. As a note, this group that went to Virginia managed to get one of the captured guns of Rickett's Battery in action against its former owners.
