the Mexican war, a rigid disciplinarian, thoroughly trained in office work, and not only systematic but original in his plans. The State has never fully appreciated, perhaps never known, the importance of the work done for it by this undemonstrative, thoroughly efficient officer. Under Martin's supervision the ten regiments of State troops and all subsequent regiments were organized. The first six regiments, commanded respectively by Cols. M. S. Stokes, C. C. Tew, Gaston Meares, George B. Anderson, D. K. McRae, and Charles F. Fisher, were in a short while transferred to the Confederacy and ordered to Virginia, three of them arriving there in time to be present at the first battle of Manassas. The Seventh, Col. R. P. Campbell, was, after some delay, sent to New Bern; and the Eighth, on its completion, went to garrison Roanoke island. The Ninth was a cavalry regiment formed by Col. Robert Ransom. There were many exasperating delays in getting this regiment equipped. Horses wer

From Manassas to Appomattox. At daylight on the 5th, Anderson, of Longstreet's corps, seeing the condition of things and believing that a struggle would be necessary to save the wagon trains, re-manned the redoubts on the right of Fort Magruder and as many on the left as the heavy rain permitted him to seeOn the day appointed, D. H. Hill, after vainly waiting from early morning until 1 o'clock for the flank movement and for the left wing, was ordered by General Longstreet to attack Casey's works with his division of four brigades. Garland and G. B. Anderson formed the left of the attacking column, and Rodes and Rains the right. After more than two hours of very hard fighting, says Gen. G. W. Smith, these four brigades, unaided, captured Casey's earthworks. Battle of Seven Pines, p. 149. Th
Garland's brigades of D. H. Hill's division were made up entirely of North Carolinians, Anderson having the Second, Fourth, Fourteenth and Thirtieth; Garland, the Fifth, Twelfth, Thirteenth, Twentieth and Twenty-third. To these two brigades, stubborn fighters all, belongs the honor of breaking the Federal right, and, as they think, thus making the first opening in the Federal lines that bloody day. General Hill says in his article in Battles and Leaders: Brig.-Gens. Samuel Garland and George B. Anderson, commanding North Carolina brigades in my division, asked permission to move forward to attack the right flank and rear of the division of regulars. The only difficulty in the way was a Federal battery with its infantry supports, which could enfilade them in their advance. Two of Elzey's regiments, which had got separated in crossing the swamp, were sent by me, by way of my left flank, to the rear of the battery to attack the infantry supports, while Col. Alfred Iverson, of the Twent
on; Branch with five regiments, and Pender with four, were under A. P. Hill; Garland with five, Anderson with four, and Ripley with two regiments were in D. H. Hill's division. The cavalry was under er, did not know that he had an open front, and remained stationary. Half an hour later, Gen. G. B. Anderson arrived with his small North Carolina brigade. Anderson was sent to hold one of the two . So Hill was left with only the Alabama brigade of Rodes and the North Carolina brigade of G. B. Anderson to stand against the divisions of French and Richardson. To his left, the Twentysev-enth Notheir first advantage. While bravely discharging his duty in this part of the field, Gen. George B. Anderson, of North Carolina, received a wound that proved mortal. It is stated that he was the officers, or acting field officers, were killed or mortally wounded: Gen. L. O'B. Branch, Gen. G. B. Anderson, Col. C. C. Tew, and Capts. W. T. Marsh and D. P. Latham, commanding Fourth North Carolin
General Ewell's corps, moving on the turnpike, was diminished by the absence of Gen. R. D. Johnston's North Carolina brigade, then stationed at Hanover Court House, and by Hoke's North Carolina brigade, just then ordered up from North Carolina. Anderson's division of Hill's corps also was not present at the opening of the battle. So, says Colonel Venable of Lee's staff, on May 5th, General Lee had less than 28,000 infantry in hand. Richmond Address. The willingness of the great Confedera to Parker's store, so that Hancock might connect with Warren's left. Hancock formed the divisions of Birney, Mott, Gibbon and Barlow on Getty's left. These five divisions were resisted all the afternoon by Heth's and Wilcox's divisions alone, Anderson, Hill's other division commander, being still absent with his command. The divisions of Getty, Birney, Mott, two brigades of Hancock and two of Barlow were composed of seventynine regiments. The two divisions that opposed them numbered forty r
of August That officer was to destroy the road to Rowanty creek. His force consisted of his first division, commanded by General Miles, his second division, under General Gibbon, and Gregg's cavalry. By the 24th, Hancock had destroyed the road nearly to Reams' Station. This road was vital to the comfort of the Confederates. So A. P. Hill was directed to stop its destruction. Hill took with him the North Carolina brigades of Scales, Lane, Cooke, MacRae, and in addition, McGowan's and Anderson's brigades, and two of Mahone's. On Hill's approach, Hancock formed behind some old intrenchments constructed in June. General Gibbon was posted in the left half of these, and General Miles occupied the right half. Gregg's force was on the flank, and seems to have been partly dismounted and intrenched. The first attack of Hill, about 2 o'clock, seems to have been made only by the brigades of McGowan and Scales. They were repulsed. At 5 o'clock, General Hill sent forward three North Ca

General George Burgwyn Anderson—The memorial address of Hon. A. M. Waddell, May 11, 1885. Ladies and Gentlemen: Twelve centuries and a half ago, when the Kentish Queen, accompanied by Paulinus, went into Northumbria to convert King Eadwine to Christianity, and when the wise men of that kingdom were assembled to consider the nhe town of Hillsboroa, in the county of Orange, which has been the residence of as many, if not more, distinguished citizens than any county in the State, George Burgwyn Anderson was born on the 12th day of April, in the year 1831, and was the oldest son of the late William E. Anderson, Esq., and his wife, Eliza Burgwyn. In his eapainful wounds, heroic suffering and death—if all these combined constitute a theme worthy of commemoration by orator or poet, then the duty assigned me to-day might well have been entrusted to the most gifted of men, and the people of North Carolina would have a juster estimate of the life and services of George Burgwyn Anderson

, as appeared by the reports in the Richmond papers at that time. One regiment, the Twenty sixth North Carolina, at the battle of Gettysburg, which went in nine-hundred rank and file, came out with but little over one hundred men fit for duty. They lost no prisoners. One company, eighty-four strong, made the unprecedented report that every man and officer in it was hit, and the orderly sergeant who made out the list did it with a bullet through each leg The regiment commanded by General George B. Anderson (then Colonel) the Fourth North Carolina, at the battle of Seven Pines lost four hundred and sixty-two men, killed and wounded, out of five hundred and twenty, and twenty-four out of twenty-seven officers. Of the four divisions—D. H. Hill's, A. P. Hill's, Longstreet's and Jackson's—which assailed and put to rout McClellan's right on the Chickahominy, there were ninety-two regiments, of which forty-six regiments were North Carolinians. This statement I make upon the authority o
