Fitzhugh Lee, General Lee, Chapter 4: War. (search)
I feel no hostility to you Senators from the North. I am sure there is not one of you, whatever sharp discussion there may have been between us, to whom I can not say in the presence of my God, I wish you well, and such is the feeling, I am sure, of the people whom I represent and those whom you represent. For whatever offense I have given, I have, Senators, in this hour of our parting, to offer you my apology. General Lee found himself surrounded on all sides by war. From Richmond, June 9, 1861, he wrote his wife: You may be aware that the Confederate Government is established here. Yesterday I turned over to it the command of the military and naval forces of the State, in accordance with the proclamation of the Governor, under an agreement between the State and the Confederate States. I do not know what my position will be. I should like to retire to private life, so that I could be with you and the children, but if I can be of service to the State or her cause, I must conti

were ordered to shout Boston, when they should charge the insurgents; and other precautions were taken to prevent blunders, into which inexperienced soldiers were liable to fall. Duryee and his Zouaves left Camp Hamilton at near midnight, June 9, 1861. preceded by two companies of skirmishers, under Captains Bartlett and Kilpatrick. Hampton Bridge had been so much injured by the fire that it might not be safely crossed in darkness, so the troops were ferried over the creek in surf-boats, afrom a written statement of General Peirce to the author, in February, 1865; Report of General Butler to the General-in-chief, June 10, 1861; Reports of Colonels Duryee and Allen, and Captain Kilpatrick, June 11, 1861; Orders of General Peirce, June 9, 1861, and letter of the same to the editor of the Boston Journal, August 3, 1861; Report of Colonel D.

iations were formed, and after much difficulty an organization was made on a far more extended and efficient plan, which contemplated the co-operation of the association with the Medical Department of the army, under the sanction of the Government, in the care of the sanitary interests of the soldiers. Miss Dix, as we have seen, had already done much in that direction. Dr. Bellows and his associates now endeavored to do much more, and their efforts were rewarded with success. On the 9th of June, 1861, the Secretary of War issued an order, appointing Henry W. Bellows, D. D., Professor A. D. Bache, Ll. D. (Chief of the Coast Survey), Professor Jeffries Wyman, M. D., Henry W. Bellows. W. H. Van Buren, M. D., R. C. Wood, Surgeon-General of the United States Army, G. W.

Lieut. John T. Greble.--The following letter was written by Lieut. Greble the day before he was killed:-- camp Butler, Newport News, Va., Sunday, June 9th, 1861. It is a delightful Sabbath morning — it has a Sabbath feeling about it. If you had lost the run of the week, such a day as to-day would tell you it was the Sabbath. The camp is unusually quiet, and its stillness broken by little except the organ tones of some of the Massachusetts men, who are on the beach, singing devotional airs. Last Sabbath the men were at work in the trenches; to-day is their first day of rest. A great deal of work has been done, and, during the last week, under unfavorable circumstances — rainy days. With very little more labor, our whole line of intrenchments will be finished. There is a little trimming off to be done, and a magazine to be built, a little earth to be thrown up in front of some heavy columbiads that have been mounted, and some storehouses to be built; but enough has been

While waiting for the official reports, I have the honor to submit thus far the information of which I am possessed. I have the honor to be, most respectfully, Your obedient servant, Benj. F. Butler, Major-General Commanding. Brigadier-General Pierce's orders. Headquarters, Camp Hamilton, June 9, 1861. General orders, No. 12.--A plan of attack to-night is herewith enclosed and forwarded to Col. Duryea, commanding 5th regiment N. Y. State troops, who will act accordingly. Col. Townsend, commanding 3d regiment. N. Y. State troops, will march his command in support of Col. Duryea. Col. Carr, commanding 2d regiment New York volunteers, will detach the artillery company of his regiment, with their field-pieces, caissons, and a suitable supply of ammunition, and take their position at t
sential to the young soldier, I am compelled to request the patriotic citizens of this and the neighboring counties to send here such of their negro men as they can spare, with or without rations, and with spades and pickaxes, confident that they will cheerfully contribute this labor to assist in the defence of our country and cause. G. T. Beauregard, Brig.-Genl. Comdg. Official: S. W. Ferguson, Lt. and A. D. C. Headquarters Department of Alexandria, Va., Manassas Junction, June 9th, 1861. Sir,—On assuming the command here, I found Dr. Gastin, South Carolina Volunteers, acting as medical director, and I have continued him in that position, as I believe him to be fully competent to fulfil its duties; but as he has no Confederate States commission, the assistant surgeons of this command might object to receiving orders from him; I have, then, to request, either that he should be confirmed in his present position, or that another surgeon should be ordered here in his pla

He served against the Seminoles, and afterward on frontier duty at Fort Yuma, Cal. He resigned in 1856 and became a counselor-at-law at Napoleonville, La., where the outbreak of war found him.

On the 9th of June, 1861, he was promoted to be lieutenant-colonel of his regiment.

Company D, forty-fourth Virginia. [from the Richmond, Va., Dispatch, May 6, 1900.] A brief history and roster of the command. To the Editor of the Dispatch: I herewith enclose roster of Company D, 44th Virginia Infantry, Colonel W. C. Scott, of Powhatan county, for publication in your Confederate column. I think it will be of interest at least to the surviving members of the regiment. This company was mustered into the service of the Confederate States on the 9th of June, 1861, as from Louisa. The men, in fact, were about in equal numbers from Louisa, Goochland, Hanover and Fluvanna. After drilling at Camp Lee a few weeks, it was ordered to reinforce General Garnett at Rich Mountain, W. Va. It arrived just in time to witness his defeat and death. It then fell back to a strong position, where the Staunton and Parkersburg turnpike crosses the Greenbrier river. Colonel Edward Johnson, of the 12th Georgia, and others, under command of General Henry R. Jackson, arrive
