ich he says, in speaking of the fight on the 2d of July: General Ewell had directed General Rodes tos reported on the field on the morning of the 2d July: I carried the order to Colonel Alexander,belong to Johnson's division. At 2:30 A. M., July 2d, we took the road, (both battalions,) and by the fight made by these two divisions on the 2d of July at Gettysburg. I cannot refrain from inserrd to Gen. Lee's battle order on the 1st and 2d of July at Gettysburg, was duly received. I did notissued by General Lee. About sunrise on the 2d of July I was sent by General Lee to General Ewell tI have already stated, on the morning of the 2d of July. My division soon commenced filing into an broke up General Lee's line of battle on the 2d of July by detaching part of his division on some u after a hard march at or before sunrise on July the 2d. So imperative had been our orders to hasto hours during the night from the 1st to the 2d of July. It appears to me that the gentlemen who[3 more...]

its communications well secured, was an imniossibility as long as the Federal army was not crushed. The proof is, that as soon as the latter began to move, Lee, who had undertaken nothing but a raid on a too large scale, found himself so much endangered that he was obliged to fight an offensive battle on the ground where Meade chose to wait for him. He ought to have manoeuvered in Virginia so as to bring on a battle before crossing the Potomac. 3rd. The way in which the fights of the 2nd of July were directed does not show the same co-ordination which ensured the success of the Southern arms at Gaines' Mill and Chancellorsville. 4th. 1 do not understand why Lee, having gained some success on the 2nd, but found the Federal position very strong, did not attempt to turn it by the south, which was its weak place, by extending his right so as to endanger Meade's communications with Washington. 5th. The heroic but foolish attack of Pickett, on the 3rd, should never have been att

To the operations of the 2d of July I now direct attention, not with the view ofthe main attack early in the morning of the 2nd of July. If these reports furnished the sly undecessful if adopted. On the night of July 1st two corps of General Lee's army lay in close proxime to the part I took in the operations of the 2d July, and says that he had no idea that I (he) hads the position of the Federal forces on the 2nd of July: I begin on their right: At 6 A.

ia, March 10th, General Humphreys, U. S. A., rather confirms my estimate of the strength of the Army of the Potomac at Gettysburg. According to his statement, the return of that army on the 30th June, 1863, showed present for duty, officers and enlisted men, 99,475. He further states that Stannard's brigade, of five regiments, and Lockwood's brigade, of two regiments, coming from the Department of Washington andi the Middle Department, joined the Army of the Potomac on the morning of the 2d of July, and consequently they were not on the return of the 30th June. Two regiments of Stannard's brigade went to the main trains, and three joined the First Corps. His regiments are stated on good authority to have been about five hundred each-much larger than the average of the Army of the Potomac. The same estimate is made by General Humphreys of the strength of Lockwood's two regiments. If we add to the strength of the Army of the Potomac, as shown by the return of the 30th of June, viz

cupied by us. My memoranda says that Johnson was subsequently reinforced by the brigades of Smith and Daniel. Probably this was just before the last fatal charge. I remember the latter brigade coming up at that time. I did not see it before, and I did not see Smith's brigade at all. Or both brigades may have been employed on the right and left flanks at an earlier hour. I would only state it as my conviction that the captured works were held by the men who captured them from 9 P. M., July 2d, to 10 A. M., July 3d, and by none others. During the last hour of their occupation (10 to 11) the right of the works was held by the brigade of General Daniel. Then came General Ewell's order to assume the offensive and assail the crest of Culp's Hill, on our right. My diary says that both General Steuart and General Daniel, who now came up with his brigade to support the movement, strongly disapproved of making the assault. And well might they despair of success in the face of such
