nd fall back at once to the interior lines, because I knew, from personal observation, that the works, where my line had been broken, were held by an overwhelming force. I so informed General Wilcox on his arrival at Fort Gregg. He, however, ordered Thomas and myself forward, with instructions to me to occupy Fort Gregg, when I was forced to retire. I formed immediately in front of Fort Gregg, and Thomas formed on my left. We drove the enemy beyond the branch, near the house occupied by Mrs. Banks. Harris's brigade came up afterwards on my right. When the enemy developed his two long, compact lines of battle, and a heavy line of skirmishers, and commenced advancing, I withdrew, and sent an officer at once to Fort Gregg with instructions to let a sufficient number of my men enter the fort to man it, and to order the others to the Dam between Fort Gregg and Battery 45. General Thomas authorizes me to state that he advanced with me; that he was on my left next to the outer line of

bution to the Southern Historical Society, and admits that it was substantially correct. It had, in his opinion, only two mistakes: (1.) I had over-estimated the strength of his brigade, taking it to be about five hundred, when in fact it had but four hundred, one hundred having been left behind on the skirmish line near Swift Run. (2.) And I had called a certain house Barnes's house, when it should have been Newman's house. The extract made by him contained no such name as Barnes's, but. Banks's house was used, and correctly. It was four or five hundred yards beyond Battery Gregg, to the left of the plank road going from Petersburg. When Colonel Venable informed me that Harris's brigade would soon report, I replied that I knew it well, that it numbered about five hundred men. The condition of my front was such when it arrived that it was immaterial whether it had that or more than that number.

Banks) on his Red River expedition the additional sobriquet of Dick Taylor's commissary. Gen. Trimble rose to the rank of T. Johnson, Hays, York, J. M.

The whole brigade behaved nobly in these two engagements, and again proved themselves worthy of the high esteem of our Commanding General. Winter quarters. Not long after the fight at the Pegram House, we went into winter quarters. Our huts were built on each side of the road leading to the Jones House — our right resting near the residence of a widow lady named Banks; and our left extending a little beyond a dam thrown across the stream in front of our works.

I don't know, General, was the reply, We used to call him Fool Tom Jackson at the Virginia Military Institute, but I do not suppose that he is really crazy. I tell you sir, rejoined the irate veteran, he is as crazy as a March hare. He has gone away, I don't know where, and left me here with instructions to stay until he returns. But Banks's whole army is advancing on me, and I have not the most remote idea where to communicate with General Jackson. I tell you, sir, he is crazy, and I will just march my division away from here. I do not mean to have it cut to pieces at the behest of a crazy man. And as Walker rode away he left Ewell pacing the yard of his quarters in no good humor at being thus left in ignorance of the whereabouts and plans of his chief.
