*At this time serious efforts begin to separate units of the Evans' Brigade. They are moved to different districts and the 18th goes to Florida. Evans is brought forward on charges and the matter proceeds to Richmond for the eye of the President. Eventually the Brigade minus the MacBeth Artillery will be brought back together in Wilmington under new command. One of the most difficult issues is the continuing disagreement between the Colonels of the command and Evans. It reflects poorly on all involved and probably cost McMasterís and Bendow the most. Bendow is a distinguished soldier and probably would have achieved Generalís rank anywhere but where he found himself. McMasterís was also well loved and a more than adequate commander. S.D. Goodlett, another Colonel, was cashiered at Kinston which was the beginning of the open warfare between the Colonels and General Evans.
