Vol., battle-field near Gettysburg, Pa., July 5, 1863. your Excellency: I have the honor herewith to transmit to you a brief statement of the movements of this regiment since leaving Falmouth, Va. On Sunday evening, June fourteenth, we struck tents, and moved about five miles towards Stafford Court House, when we were ordered back on picket, at Sedgewick's Crossing, below Falmouth. At three o'clock of the morning of the fifteenth, we were withdrawn, and moved again towards Stafford Court House, our corps forming the rear guard of the army. We reached Acquia Creek, near Dumfries, that night--twenty-eight miles; and on the next day marched to Occoquan--sixteen miles farther. On the seventeenth we marched to Fairfax Station, and on the nineteenth to Centreville. Up to this, the weather had been very hot, and the men suffered severely from the hard marching. On the twentieth we were detailed to guard the train, a
as presenting the theatre of operations of one wing of Lee's army, under Lieutenant-General Longstreet, Hill, and Hood, from April tenth to May third, 1863. Although Hill was not present all the time, he was operating with Longstreet, and by his orders made certain demonstrations in North Carolina, about the first of April, with the object of causing troops to be detached from Suffolk and other points. Having accomplished his mission, he discontinued the siege of Little Washington on the fifteenth, and despatched his troops to Suffolk. Longstreet himself may have joined Lee and Jackson at the crisis of Chancellorsville, or soon after, although his servants and horses fell into our hands near Suffolk, on the fourth of May. Doubtless one division, or a portion thereof, succeeded in reaching the Rapidan, in spite of the bold operations of Stoneman. The relative strength of Hooker and Lee is given by the New York Tribune of March twenty-six, 1864, in an editorial on the Richmond
my's batteries. Firing was kept up by the artillery and sharpshooters most of the day. On the fifteenth their cavalry forced a crossing at Wellford's Ford, driving the few pickets off, and made a daf the enemy. Lieutenant Gary was wounded; no other casualties occurred during the day. On the fifteenth I received orders, and moved with my command towards Wellford's Ford, as the enemy were reportnemy at Rappahannock bridge, and reestablishing the pickets driven out in the morning. On the fifteenth, the enemy having crossed in large force at a ford above, flanked that portion of the command til relieved by your order, about nine P. M., and returned to camp. On the morning of the fifteenth instant, twenty men, under command of Lieutenant James Baker, company D, were detached, and sent tforty minutes, and then retired. I am happy to report no casualties during the day. On the fifteenth, my battery was again called out and held in position near the old church, upon the road (I be

Arrived off Cross Island, the entrance to Margaret's Bay, at six P. M., on the thirteenth. The weather being so thick we could not enter, and we attempted to lay in sight of the light; but, thicker weather coming on, and a heavy blow from the southward, we could not make the land until two P. M. on the fifteenth instant, to the eastward of our port. Finding it impossible to get into Margaret's Bay, and the ship being so light that we could do but little in the gale which was blowing, and our coal being nearly exhausted, we ran into Halifax. Arrived at the coal wharf at half past 5 P. M., and left at eleven P. M. (having taken in one hundred and thirty-six tons coal) for LaHave, N. S., where the Chesapeake was then reported to be. All this night a heavy gale was blowing from the westward, rendering i

During the night, Brigadier-General Taliaferro threw out a party, one hundred and fifty strong, under Major Ryan, of the Seventh South Carolina battalion, which drove in the enemy's pickets from his rifle-pits, extending across the island about three-quarters of a mile from Battery Wagner, back upon his main supports, inflicting a considerable loss, with but small upon our part. On the fifteenth the enemy landed troops in force on Morris Island, and .there were indications of a renewal of the assault on the fort. The frigate Ironsides had crossed the bar on the night of the fourteenth. During the day the enemy was strengthening his position, our troops being engaged in repairing damages and replying to the enemy's monitors, gunboats and sharpshooters.

The want of field compel him to abandon his communications by Snyder's. On the fifteenth, I expressed to the department the opinion, that without some greenching and constructing batteries since their arrival.

The instructions to Lieutenant-General Hood were revoked, and Walker's division sent to the point named by Major-General Martin. On the fifteenth there was severe skirmishing on the whole front. Major-General Walker reported no movement near Calhoun, Lieutenant-General Hood was directed to prepare to move forward, his right leading, supported by two brigades from Polk's and Hardee's core Chattahoochee, skirmishing became less severe. On the fourteenth a division of Federal cavalry crossed the river by Moore's Bridge, near Newnan, but was driven back by Armstrong's brigade, sent by Brigadier-General Jackson to meet it. On the fifteenth Governor Brown informed me orally that he hoped to reinforce the army before the end of the month with near ten thousand State troops. On the seventeenth the main body of the Federal army crossed the Chattahoochee between Roswell and Powers'
th, by advancing from Rocky Gap; and, having informed General Heth (who was in position at the mouth of Wolf creek), that he should attack the enemy at the mouth of East river, on the morning of the seventeenth, I put my column in motion on the fifteenth, and reached Princeton on the night of the sixteenth. My advance was unexpected by Brigadier-General Cox, who had his headquarters and body-guard at Princeton at the time, with a force variously estimated at from five hundred to twelve hundreds and orders, dated from the tenth down to the sixteenth of May--fully disclose the intentions of the enemy and his strength. I send you several of these for your perusal. I learned from the inhabitants of Princeton that on the morning of the fifteenth, the two regiments, about nine hundred men each, had passed through town toward East River, and that two regiments had been expected to arrive at eight P. M., from Raleigh, the very evening I came. I had a knowledge that one or more regiments
