ported as deserters, known to be in New York City, leads to the belief that, their officers having set the example, the men were not slow to follow. Report of General Schenck. Second brigade, First Division, Department N. E. Virginia, July 23, 1861. To Brig.-Gen. Tyler, Commanding First Division: General: I have the honor to submit this report of the movements and service of my brigade in the battle at Bull Run off the Gainesville road on the 21st inst. Leaving my camp, one mile sy is herewith annexed. Reports from Capts. Wright and Alexander and Lieut. Prime will be furnished when received. I am, very respectfully, your most obedient, J. G. Barnard, Major Engineers. Major Barry's report. Arlington, Va., July 23, 1861. Capt. J. B. Fry, Assistant Adjutant-General, Headquarters Department N. E. Virginia: Captain: Having been appointed, by special orders No. 21, Headquarters Department Northeastern Virginia, Centreville, July 19, 1861, Chief of Artillery o
Doc.7.-secession letters and narratives. Doctor J. C. Nott's account. Richmond, July 23, 1861. Dear Harleston: I have seen the great and glorious battle of Manassas, which brought a nation into existence, and the scene was grand and impressive beyond the power of language. We foresaw the action several days ahead — the enemy were known to be advancing in immense masses from Arlington towards Fairfax, and the master stroke was at once made, to order Johnston down from Winchester, by forced marches, before Patterson could get down on the other side. Johnston's troops marched all twenty-six miles, then crowded into the railroad, came down in successive trains, without sleeping or eating, (15,000,) and arrived, many of them, while the battle was raging. I got to Manassas the morning of the day previous to the fight; and knowing well both Generals Beauregard and Johnston, and their staff officers, I went immediately to headquarters. Zac. Deas, among the rest, was there in
Doc. 115.-Beauregard's order. Headquarters, army of Potomac, Manassas, July 23, 1861. Colonel:--Mr. George Johnson, special agent of the Quartermaster's Department, is sent to Loudon county for the purpose of collecting wagons, teams, and grain forage for the use of this army. It is expected that he will have no difficulties whatsoever; that the loyal citizens of your rich county will be glad to have an opportunity thus to furnish supplies for our army, which has so gloriously maintained the independence and sovereignty of Virginia, and driven back in ignominious flight the invaders of her soil. But, at the same time, all classes of your citizens must contribute their quota; therefore, if necessary, it is expected that constraint must be employed with all who are forgetful of their obligations. By order of General Beauregard. Respectfully, Colonel, your obedient servant, Thomas Jordan, A. A. Adjutant General. To Colonel A. T. M. Rust, Commandant Militia, Loudon co
Doc. 116.-Lt.-Gov. Arnold's proclamation. State of Rhode Island, &c. Executive Department, July 23, 1861. To the People of Rhode Island:-- All hearts are bowed in sorrow at the disastrous result of the battle of the 21st inst., at Bull Run, in Virginia. The national arms have sustained a temporary defeat. This reverse is the more sad to us that it is accompanied by the loss of so many gallant officers and brave men who held the honor of Rhode Island second only to their love of country. Colonel John S. Slocum, Major Sullivan Ballou, Captains Levi Tower and Samuel J. Smith, and Lieutenant Thomas Foy, of the Second regiment, and Lieutenant Henry A. Prescott, of the First regiment, have fallen. So far as yet known, this completes the list of fatal casualties among the officers; that of the privates is not yet received. The State will embalm the memory of these noble men, as it preserves the fame of its heroes of revolutionary days. This reverse calls for renewed
Doc. 207.-battle of Carrick's Ford. Richmond Dispatch narrative. McDowell, Highland County, July 23d, 1861. I have no doubt you have received various and numerous reports of the movements of the troops of General Garnett's command since I last wrote you, and I now merely write to give a true and accurate statement of the retreat and death of General Garnett--a statement which I defy any one to question, and to which those high in authority will willingly subscribe. I would have given you the particulars before, but having hard and severe duty to perform, I was not able to do so. We had been skirmishing with the enemy a week at Laurel Hill, when, on Thursday evening, 11th July, we received an order from Gen. Garnett to prepare provisions for a two days march, shortly after which we were directed to strike our tents, and took up our line of march for Beverly, a distance of sixteen miles, which place we came within three miles of, when we found that a very formidable blo
