ion while attempting to make their escape after the evacuation. March from Winchester into Maryland and Pennsylvania, and operations until the battle of Gettysburg. While in command at Winchester, I detached the Fifty-fourth N. 0. regiment, of Hoke's brigade, and the Fifty-eighth Virginia regiment, of Smith's brigade, to Staunton in charge of the prisoners, and leaving the Thirteenth Virginia regiment, of Smith's brigade, on duty in Winchester, I left that place on the afternoon of the 18th, and proceeded with the residue of Hoke's brigade, and Jones's battalion of artillery, to Shepherdstown on the next day, Gordon's and Hays's brigades, and the three remaining regiments of Smith's brigade, having preceded me to that place.

My tri-monthly field return made out at Shepherdstown, and the original of which i

At 12 o'clock, General Lee was serenaded by the Palmetto guards, and responded in a happy speech, after which Captain Dawson invited the company in to refresh themselves, and a number of little speeches were made, closing with a singularly felicitous and eloquent one by Captain Dawson, which showed that he can use the arts of the orator as well as handle the sword, or wield the pen. At 10 o'clock on the morning of the 18th, we were escorted to the Armory of the Washington Light Infantry, where we were met by a committee of that historic corps, and courteously shown a number of interesting relics and mementoes, which we regret our space will not permit us to describe in detail. Then followed, in the new city hall, a reception, which was tendered by the following official action of the city council: Hibernian Hall, Special Meeting, Nov. 9, 1882. Council met this day at 7 P. M. Present--Hon. Wm. A. Cou
