Geni. Lee. I need only add that every movement or halt of the troops on that day was made in the immediate presence of General Lee, or in his sightcertainly within reach of his easy and prompt correction. I quote in this connection the order that I issued to the heads of departments in my corps on the 1st. I present the order issued to Colonel Walton of the artillery, similar orders having been issued to the division commanders: [Order.]headquarters First army corps, near Gettysburg, July 18, 5:30 P.

This regiment was ordered to Romney, Va., on the 18th of June, where the Maryland company encamped, and performed picket duty until July 18th, when, owing to some dissatisfaction with the idle life they were leading, the company withdrew from Colonel McDonald's command, and by forced marches placed itself under the command of Colonel J. E. B. Stuart, and became Company K of the First Virginia cavalry; doing such excellent service during her connection with this famous regiment, that at the retreat from Manassas Colonel Fitzhugh Lee said, Give me the Maryland company and one hundred other men, and I will keep McClellan back a mon
