October No., 1877,Jof the Southern Historical Society Papers, in speaking of the fight of the 3d of July at Gettysburg, makes General Lee say, I shall ever believe if General Pender had remained on hillery shot on the afternoon of the 2d of July, and was taken to the rear, where he was on the 3d of July, and could not even mount his horse. Surely General Heth could not have read the report of GeSouthern Historical Society Papers), Colonel Walter H. Taylor, in speaking of the fight on the 3d of July, says: Had Hood and McLaws followed or supported Pickett, and Pettigrew and Anderson have beender Lieutenant-General Longstreet, and caused all the batteries in the grand bombardment of the 3d July to be placed in position from right to left, placing the Washington Artillery, under Major Eshld that the battalions be kept where they were until further orders.

itia was too raw at the time to have been subjected to such an ordeal as a drawn fight in the open field against Lee's veteran soldiers. Losses on Both Sides.-We have now the official figures, which preclude any further discussion on that subject; I acknowledge my mistake pointed out by Colonel Allan, concerning the losses of the Confederate army, as he acknowledges his regarding the losses of the Third corps. From the returns of Stuart, now in my hands, his loss on the 2d and on the 3d of July, was 264, and including Imboden's and Jenkin's, must be above 300, while, on the other hand, we must deduct from the 22,728, about 700 men lost between the 3d and the 18th of July; therefore the whole Confederate loss at Gettysburg must have been about 22,300 or 22,400. The official figures are for the Federals: Killed, 2,834; wounded, 13,709; missing, 6,643. Total, 23,186. For the Confederates: Killed, 2,665; wounded, 12,599; missing, 7,464. Total, 22,728.

(Owing to the fact that on the 3d July I was occupied chiefly on the right of the line, my narrative relates principally to the deeds of the regiments on the right.) In preparing the narrative my memorof earthworks into which Steuart had driven his brigade like a wedge the night before was held by him alone through all those terrible hours on the morning of the 3d July. The reinforcements which came to Johnson must have been employed on the flanks or on some other portion of the line than that occupied by us. My memoranda sanks 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 E
