Southern Historical Society Papers, Volume 7. (ed. Reverend J. William Jones), Jackson's Valley campaign of 1862. (search)
the brigades of Loring's troops (General Loring had succeeded General Lee) reached him early in December. Subsequently two more brigades under General Loring himself were added, but all these troops only increased the small force of 3,000 State militia which he had assembled in the district itself to about 11,000 men. Dabney's Life of Jackson, page 257. The greater part of General Loring's force did not arrive at Winchester until Christmas, thus preventing any important movements during November and December. But meantime Jackson was not idle. He spent the time in organizing, drilling and equipping the militia and the scattered cavalry commands, which he consolidated into a regiment under Colonel Ashby; and in sending expeditions against the Chesapeake and Ohio canal, by breaking which he annoyed the enemy and interrupted an important line of communication. Jackson was employed from December 16th to December 21st in an expedition against Dam No. 5 on the Potomac. Here Capta

bear out every one of these points. He marched the Fifteenth corps into Columbia on the 17th of February, and the city was destroyed that night. General Hampton evacuated the city about 9 o'clock Friday, the 17th; General Sherman took possession before 10 o'clock; and the fires that destroyed the city began between 8 and 9 o'clock that evening — more than ten hours after the city was in General Sherman's hands. Second. In his cross-examination before the Mixed Claims Commission (in November or December, 1872)--that portion conducted by George Rivers Walker--General Sherman stated that in Columbia soldiers not on duty and of the Fifteenth corps were allowed to disperse about the city; that his men were thoroughly under control, well disciplined, and that the long roll would at any time have summoned them to their ranks; that he feared they would burn the city, and that he would not restrain them to their ranks to save every city in South Carolina.

material for a true history of the principles, the deeds and the character of the Confederate soldier. The Southern Historical Society is engaged in just this work, and we think we have a claim on the sympathies and the active help of every Confederate soldier, and all who desire to see vindicated at the bar of history his name and his fame. The Lee Mausoleum at Lexington, Virginia, is being rapidly pushed to completion. The executive committee announced in their report the 29th of November last that they had received in all $21,140.95--that they had paid in lull for the recumbent figure of Lee $15,000, and on the mausoleum to receive it $2,844.67, leaving a balance in the treasury of $3,296.28, and a deficiency of $6,183.05 to raise in order to complete the mausoleum. A recent Lexington paper states that only $2,000 are now needed. Surely the needed amount ought to be at once raised in order that at least one fitting monument to our grand old chieftain may be completed. V

ollowing the correspondence of Mr. Holcombe and myself with the Hon. Horace Greeley. Subsequent events have confirmed my opinion that we lost nothing and gained much by that correspondence. It has, at least, formed an issue between Lincoln and the South, in which all her people should join with all their might and means. Even his Northern opponents believed, up to the meeting of the Chicago Convention, that the same issue would be decided against him by the people of the United States in November next. All of the many intelligent men from the United States with whom I conversed, agreed in declaring that it had given a stronger impetus to the peace party of the North than all other causes combined, and had greatly reduced the strength of the war party. They thought that not even a majority of the Republicans would sustain Lincoln's ultimatum, laid down as his rescript To whom it may concern. Indeed, Judge Black stated to us that Stanton admitted to him that it was a grave blunder,
