This was done effectively with the assistance of the left of McLaws, supported by Anderson.

On the 30th of September, a greater portion of Bragg's horsemen (the brigades of Wharton, Martin, Davidson, and Anderson), about four thousand strong, under Wheeler, his chief of cavalry, crossed the Tennessee, between Chattanooga and Bridgeport, pushed up the Sequatchie Valley, fell upon a National supply-train Oct. 2. of nearly one thousand wagons on its way to Chattanooga, near Anderson's cross-roads, and burned it before two regiments of cavalry, under Colonel Edward M. McCook, which had been sent from Bridgeport in pursuit, could overtake them. Wheeler's destructive work was just finished when McCook came up and attacked him. The struggle lasted until night, when Wheeler, who had been worsted in the fight, moved off in the darkness over the mountains, and fell upon another supply-train of wagons and railway cars at McMinnville.

This was answered by Roemer's battery, on College Hill, and was soon followed by a tremendous yell from the Confederates, as they rushed forward at the double-quick to storm the fort. The storming party consisted of three brigades of General McLaws's division — Wolford's, Cobb's, and Phillips's, all Georgians; General Humphreys's brigade of Mississippians, and a brigade composed of the remains of Anderson's and Bryant's, consisting of South Carolina and Georgia regiments. The leader of the Mississippi troops was the present (1868) Governor Humphreys, of Mississippi. These were picked men, the flower of Longstreet's army; and, in obedience to orders, one brigade pressed forward to the close assault, two brigades supporting it, while two others watched the National line, and kept up a continual fire. The tumult was awful for a few minutes, for it was composed of the yells of voices, the ratt

Meanwhile General Kautz had pushed up the Charles City road to the inner lines of the Confederates, within three or four miles of Richmond, where he was attacked Oct. 7, and driven back with a loss of nine guns and about four hundred men made prisoners, by General Anderson, who tried to turn the National right. The assailants speedily encountered the Tenth Corps, and in a severe battle that ensued, they were driven back toward Richmond, with a loss of three commanders of brigades, and about seven hundred men. Taking advantage of the absence of a part of Lee's force from his right, General Meade sent Warren with two divisions of his corps, Parke with two divisions of the Ninth, and Gregg, with his cavalry division, to attempt the extension of the Natio

The entire loss of the Confederates was estimated at twenty-five hundred men, including General Anderson severely wounded.

Major Anderson had borne away the tattered flag, with a resolution to raise it again over the fortress, or as the day when the old flag should be raised again over that fortress, by Major (now General) Anderson. Preparations were made accordingly. A large number of citizens went from the harbor of New Yom the Psalms.

The coast of North Carolina, and the peculiar character of the entrances to Cape Fear River, made intercourse with Wilmington, by means of blockade-runners, almost absolutely safe.
