yself most reluctantly upon the public, as General Harris, in the last No., 1880, of the Southern Historical Society Papers, does my old brigade and myself great injustice. General Harris charges me with having remained utterly silent for fifteen years before coming forward to claim all the honors of the defence of Fort Gregg for my brigade of North Carolinians, to the exclusion of his Mississippians and the gallant Louisiana artillerists. The facts are these: I, as early as the 10th day of April, 1865, at Appomattox Court-house, in my last official report, stated that a part of my command retreated to Battery Gregg, which was subsequently attacked by an immense force, and fell after the most gallant and desperate defence. On the 20th May, 1867, I furnished information about my command to General Lee, at his request, through General Wilcox, and called attention to the fact that Harris's brigade had been given in print all the credit of that gallant affair, when the honor really be

The same number has a letter addressed to myself by General Lane on this subject, dated May 20,, 1867, a few days over two years subsequent, and the letters of the four officers of Lane's brigade, before referred to, are dated in June, 1867.

The artillery of the A. N. V. In the last campaign and at the surrender. Report of General W. N. Pendleton, Chief of artillery, army of Northern Virginia. Headquarters artillery corps, Army N. Va., Appomattox Courthouse, April 10, 1865. Colonel W. H. Taylor, A. A. General A. N. V.: Colonel,--I have the honor to submit the following report of the operations of the artillery under my command from the 1st day of April to the present time. Much to my regret, it has to be made without possible access, as will be seen from the circumstances of the case, to special reports from those superior officers of this important arm, General A. L. Long, Chief of Artillery, Second corps; General E. P. Alexander, Chief of Artillery, First corps, and General R. Lindsay Walker, Chief of Artillery, Third corps. Owing to the demonstrations of the enemy on the right of our lines, near Petersburg, on the morning of April 1st, I ordered seven guns of Poague's battalion, which had been held in
