Harper's Ferry and first Manassas. Extracts from the diary of Captain James M. Garnett, in charge of General Reserve Ordnance train, Army of Northern Virginia, from January, 1863, to February, 1864; and Ordnance officer of Rodes's (later Grimes's) Division, 2d Corps, A. N. Va., from February, 1864, to April 9, 1865. Reserve Ordnance train, A. N. Va., Camp near Cobham Station, V. C. R. R., Wednesday, September 9th, 1863. Monday, April 15th, 1861, maybe considered the commencement of this war for Virginia, for on that day appeared Lincoln's proclamation for 75,000 men to crush the rebellion, which hurried up our old fogy Convention, and compelled their secession on Wednesday, April 17th. I was at that time at the University of Virginia, that session being my third, as I went there from the Episcopal High School of Virginia in '57, spent sessions '57-8 and '58-9 at the University, taught '59-‘60 at Greenwood, Mr. Dinwiddie's boarding-school in this (Albemarle) county,

food and rest. All the way we were attacked on every side. Our ranks were thinned out by sickness, fatigue, hunger, wounds, death, broken down horses, until we had not over a hundred men and officers in our regiment on the morning of the 9th of April, 1865. Notwithstanding all this, and the general impression that our cause was lost, General W. H. F. Lee ordered our regiment on the 9th of April, 1865, to charge and take a battery then in our front. This it did, with other cavalry, capturing9th of April, 1865, to charge and take a battery then in our front. This it did, with other cavalry, capturing it and a number of prisoners. The regiment lost in killed and wounded in a few minutes a very large per cent. Its color-bearer was killed in the charge while planting his flag on the enemy's artillery. This is said to be the last charge ever made by, and this the last man killed in battle in the Army of Northern Virginia. It gives me the greatest pleasure to testify to the gallantry of the men and officers of our old company in many hard-fought battles. Even when hope was gone, and all

The last charge at Appomattox. [from the Richmond, Va. Dispatch August 12, 1900.] The Fourteenth Virginia Cavalry. It fought Victoriously to the bitter End—a fight on April 9, 1865, wherein Confederates captured cannon —Two last men killed. To the Editor of the Dispatch: The last charge and captures at Appomattox Courthouse by any branch of the Army of Northern Virginia—at what time were they made, and who made them? These pertinent questions will be considered, it ist the length and breadth of the Army of Northern Virginia, and will be determined fairly, by those especially who were present for duty on the last day of the war at Appomattox Courthouse. This last charge occurred on the morning of the 9th of April, 1865, and my recollection is that we retired some time before noon of that day. I heard no further firing along our infantry or cavalry lines. Our cavalry had been sorely pressed on all sides from Petersburg to Appomattox Courthouse. The dem<

hould auld acquaintance be forgot, shook hands in loving friendship, and went their different ways. These, my brothers, are some of the sacred memories of a Phi Gam in War. Very many scenes like these graced and glorified Southern battlefields during the great war. Such was the spirit that moved and controlled the men, Federals and Confederates alike, who stood on the fighting line and did their duty there. Such was the spirit that animated them as they assembled at Appomattox, Va., April 9, 1865, the veterans of the North silent, expectant, glad in the assured hope that peace was near, gazing with sympathy and profound respect upon their foes—the veterans of the South, in torn and ragged battalions, stacking and surrendering their arms, forever folding their battle torn colors, and turning, proud and self-reliant, toward their homes, there to take up the struggle for bread. Such has been the spirit—generous, manly, considerate—that has marked the behavior of the worthy vetera<

in his modest and gentlemanly way, with a host of once familiar faces that are to be seen no more on this earth, but who, we trust, have reached the eternal shore, where there shall be no sorrow, and where they shall have beaten their swords into ploughshares and their spears into pruning-hooks. I append as a fitting conclusion to these imperfect reminiscences, the beautiful and tender poem of Percy Greg, the English historian, which needs only to be read to be appreciated. The 9th of April, 1865. It is a nation's death-cry-yes, the agony is past, The stoutest race that ever fought to-day has fought its last. Aye! start and shudder, well thou may'st, well veil thy weeping eyes; England! may God forgive thy part-man cannot but despise. Aye! shudder at that cry that speaks the South's supreme despair- Thou that could save and saved'st not — that would, yet did not dare; Thou that hadst might to aid the right and heart to brook the wrong, Weak words of comfort for the weak, a
