derates acted on the offensive, and were precipitated against the Union positions by their commander day after day with a persistent energy bordering on desperation. Their losses were frightful. In the first battle at Beaver Dam Creek on the 26th of June, some 18,000 Confederates charged a strong line held by McCall's single division and were repulsed with ease, with a loss of about 3,000 men, killed and wounded, McCall's killed and wounded amounting to less than 400, all told. The battle of ered himself and forced to retire across the Potomac. Shortly after he fell back behind the Rappahannock, through sheer exhaustion, to recuperate and rest his army, which had been incessantly toiling and fighting with splendid valor since the 26th of June.

, consisting of the 16th, 22d, 34th, and 38th North Carolina Regiments, and placed under the command of Brigadier-General Wm. D. Pender, in the division of General A. P. Hill. An officer in describing the bearing of the 22d at Seven Pines, says: In all my readings of veterans, and of coolness under fire, I have never conceived of anything surpassing the coolness of our men in this fight. In the Seven Days Fight around Richmond the regiment was next engaged: First, at Mechanicsville, June 26th, in which Colonel Connor was badly wounded; at Ellison's Mill; at Gaines' Mill, June 27th, where it won the highest encomiums. General A. P. Hill says of it in his report of the battle: The 16th North Carolina, Colonel McElroy, and the 22d, Lieutenant-Colonel Gray, at one time carried the crest of the hill, and were in the enemy's camp, but were driven back by overwhelming numbers. And General Pender: My men fought nobly and maintained their ground with great stubbornness. Next at Frazi

s certainly explicit and clear enough, and undoubtedly recites the facts as McClellan remembered them, but as it was written twenty-six years after the event, it is possible he may have forgotten some of the details of his conversation with Buckner. McClellan's correspondence at this period makes it probable that he was called to book by General Scott or President Lincoln about this matter, though no letter or telegram on the subject from the Washington end of the line is found. But on June 26th, after he had entered upon his West Virginia campaign, McClellan sent a long telegram to Scott from Grafton, in which he shows great anxiety to explain satisfactorily to his superior his relations with Buckner. This transaction, said McClellan, has surprised me beyond expression. My chief fear has been that you, whom I regard as my strongest friend in Washington, might have supposed me to be guilty of the extreme of folly. This telegram was supplemented by a letter on the same day, embo

regiment. It bore on its battle-flag the name of every battle in which the brigade participated. Before the fights around Richmond, Branch's Brigade was assigned to General A. P. Hill, and became a part of the famous Light Division. The 28th Regiment was with its brigade when it was the first, in those seven days fights, to cross the Chicahominy at Half Link, and clear the way for the crossing of the rest of the Light Division at Meadow Bridge. When it reached Mechanicsville, on the 26th of June, it was ordered to support a battery on the left of the road. Next morning it was subjected to a short but severe artillery fire. On reaching Cold Harbor, on the 27th, it and the 7th North Carolina were ordered to the left of the road, where it behaved very handsomely, its own colonel being wounded on the head, and Colonel Campbell, of the 7th, killed with the colors of his regiment in his hands. At Frazier's Farm, on the 30th, it was on the right of the 37th North Carolina Regiment.
