h their own hands the road which would have enabled them to concentrate their forces in front of the enemy's capital. Tired out by such constant vacillations, McClellan prepared to execute this fatal order without offering any comments; but he determined to take advantage of the opportunity thus offered to exercise his right wing by striking an unexpected blow at Branch's division, which might threaten his depot while he was engaged in a great battle before Richmond. On the morning of the 27th, Porter, with Morell's division, Warren's brigade and three regiments of cavalry, two of which were regulars, little less than ten thousand men in all, left Mechanicsville and Cold Harbor and proceeded toward Hanover Court-house. After a fatiguing march of twenty-two kilometres, his vanguard, consisting of the cavalry and two regiments of infantry, encountered Branch, who, on being apprised of this threatening movement, had taken position at the intersection of the Hanover and Ashland roads.

A few hours later Jackson es, wagons, cannon, rations nor ammunition. Nevertheless, on the morning of the 27th, one of his brigades, composed of New Jersey troops under General Taylor, procee McDowell on his part, with better judgment than his chief, had detached, on the 27th, one of his divisons, under Ricketts, toward Thoroughfare Gap, to bar its passag endeavoring to join the rest of Lee's army with all speed.

If Burnside had been ready to put his army in motion the instant he found himself in possession of the means for crossing the Rappahannock, even though it had taken the whole of the 26th to throw the bridges across, to distribute a few rations and cartridges to his troops, and mass them near the river, he would have been able to attack on the 27th, on the other side of Fredericksburg, the corps of Longstreet, which was entirely isolated, not having yet had time to throw up any works. He would perhaps have failed, but he had far greater chances of success than three weeks later. He could also have sent his bridge equipage direct from Belle Plaine toward the great angle of the Rappahannock known by the name of Skinner's Neck, and tried to effect a passage at this point either on the 27th or 28th, as the enemy was not able at that perio

In order to encourage enlistments and to compensate the soldiers who were invited to rally under the Federal flag, Congress passed a
