John Tillman Faulk

Declouet's Regiment, Louisiana Militia  

Their unit was marched below New Orleans near English Turn on the Mississippi River in October and remained there until 24 Dec. 1814. A large portion of the British army landed opposite them on the east side. A party of British took up quarters in a big frame house on the night of 6 Jan. 1815. Capt. Sackett called for 25 men to cross the river and give a fight to the enemy in the house. John T. Faulk and John Carroll were two of the 25 volunteers.

 

Faulk was sent to spy out the position. When he reported, he was sent a second time with orders to shoot a supposed sentinel.  As he tried to comply with the order, be was seen by his enemy and got himself shot.  He was so near the enemy fire his clothes caught fire from ensuring shots exchanged between friend and foe.  One source stated that John Carroll carried Faulk to safety. However, another source noted that Faulk was wounded during the night battle of 28 Dec. 1814 and was found by John Kitterlin who "took himup in his arms" (Faulk being a small man) and removed him within the lines in safely. 

 

It was later told that Faulk's wound in the left thigh from a musketball was so large that a surgeon drew a silk handkerchief through it to clean out the powder.  From that injury, he was crippled for the remainder of his life.
