ames and money. Renewals have been coming in with some degree of briskness, but many of our friends have neglected this important matter. Ask your neighbor if he has renewed, and send us some new names. Reports of the campaigns of 1864-5 are especially desired. The Archive Bureau at Washington lacks many of the most important of these reports, and our files also are very defective for these years. There were none of the battle reports later than May, 1863, published by the Confederate Congress; many of the reports for 1864-5 had never been sent to the War Department, and hence the great deficiency. But we are satisfied that many of these reports are still scattered through the country in the hands of the officers who prepared them or of others, and we beg our friends to make diligent inquiries and to endeavor to secure them for us. Remember that where parties are unwilling to surrender originals, we will receive them as a loan until copies can be made both for our off

Operations of Second South Carolina regiment in campaigns of 1864 and 1865. By Colonel William Wallace, Commanding. At sunrise on the morning of the 6th of May, we were marching by the right flank along the Plank road when suddenly we heard firing; heard the minnie balls whistling and falling amongst us; saw our troops running rapidly to the rear, and learned that the enemy had surprised and routed them. Kershaw's division formed line in the midst of this confusion, like cool and well trained veterans, as they were, checked the enemy and soon drove them back. The Second regiment was on the left of the Plank road, near a battery of artillery, and, although completely flanked at one time by the giving way of the troops on the right, gallantly stood their ground, though suffering terribly; they and the battery keeping up a well directed fire to the right oblique until the enemy gave way. General Lee now appeared on our left, leading Hood's brigade. We rejoined our brigade on the

y all else, of course, General Sherman means the destruction of the city. In his official report of the event itself in 1865 General Sherman says: And without hesitation I charge General Wade Hampton with having burned his own city of Columbia, no Sherman's three statements of his version of the story of Columbia's burning. They show a toning down as we come on from 1865 to 1873, and finally to 1875; but this discrepancy is not the matter before me just now. The general idea of the three station directly at all; but it is important in its bearing upon the veracity of General Sherman, who in his official report (1865) said that General Hampton ordered that all cotton, public and private, should be moved into the streets and fired. The eand purity of character, at its head, has been already several years collecting testimony upon the burning of that city in 1865, and the evidence thus put in legal form will probably have some influence in shaping the opinion of the civilized world.

Book notices. History of the First and Second Missouri Confederate brigades, 1861-1865; and from Wakarusa to Appomattox: a military Anagraph. By R. S. Brevier, Saint Louis: Bryan, Brand & Co. 1879. We are indebted to the publishers for a copy of this book, which is of a class which we would like to see largely multiplied, as histories of particular commands and sketches of personal adventure will be valuable material for the future historian. The first part of the book is a deeply interesting history of the organization, campaigns and gallant deeds of the First and Second Confederate Missouri brigades. The facts are well grouped together and the story told in a narrative of deep interest, which gives one an exalted idea of the patient endurance and heroic courage of the splendid troops which composed these noble brigades. The second part of the book--From Wakarusa to Appomattox--is a personal narrative of what the gallant soldier saw and heard while wearing the gray, a

mid such scenes as these, a monument should be reared to the unknown and unrecorded dead of the rank and file who followed these splendid leaders. But above all, there stands hard by the heroic old town of Winchester, whose people, from 1861 to 1865, threw open their doors to the Confederate soldier, and esteemed it a sweet privilege to share with him their last crust of bread, and whose noble women were ministering angels in the hospital, and always ready to make any sacrifice, endure any haip, suffer any privation or risk any danger for the land they loved so well and the cause they served so faithfully. We would have expected these people to have honored the Confederate dead and accordingly we find that as early as the autumn of 1865 (before any similar movement, North or South, had been inaugurated), two ladies of Winchester (Mrs. Phil. Williams and Mrs. A. H. H Boyd) conceived the plan of gathering into one cemetery and properly caring for the remains of the Confederate sold

ty which offered certain high profits, it would have been easy to have enriched himself by millions if he had perverted the functions of his position, but to his honor be it said, that he neither enriched himself or friends to the extent of a farthing. So governing the administration of his office that all his energies were devoted solely to the service of his people, content with the humble fare and the simplest form of a soldier's life. His headquarters during the fall and winter of 1864-5 were at Wytheville, as more central than Dublin and near the scene of possible operations. In December, near its middle, General Stoneman advanced from East Tennessee with a heavy cavalry force, while Burbridge came from Kentucky, the two effecting a junction and capturing Abingdon before meeting with any serious resistance. They also subsequently captured Saltville and Wytheville; but such was the vigor of General Breckinridge's movements and the skill of his dispositions, that with his mea
