Fitzhugh Lee, General Lee, Chapter 14: siege of Petersburg. (search)
a note to Mrs. Lee, dated Petersburg, June 19th, he says: I am much obliged to the kind people for the clothes; but if they are not gray they are of no use to me in the field. I hope to go to church this blessed day, and shall remember you all in my poor prayers. The ladies were always contributing to his comfort. He writes from Camp Petersburg, July 24, 1864: The ladies of Petersburg have sent me a nice set of shirts. They were given to me by Mrs. James R. Branch, and her mother, Mrs. Thomas Branch. In fact, they have given everything — which I fear they can not spare-vegetables, bread, milk, ice cream. To-day one of them sent me a nice peach — the first one I think I have seen for two years. I sent it to Mrs. Shippen. Mr. Platt held services again to-day under the trees near my camp. We had quite a large congregation of citizens, ladies and gentlemen, and our usual number of soldiers. During the services I constantly heard the shells crashing among the houses of Petersburg.

ith Mahone's division. The denouement, as we shall see later in my story, proved the wisdom of his words. We went into camp that night about a mile from the courthouse, were undisturbed during the night, and rising early next morning I rode to the courthouse alone, to view the prospect and to receive my orders. There I found, or rather just before reaching there, a bivouac of officers high in command, one or two generals amongst them, at breakfast around a fire, and I recognized Maj. Thos. Branch, who introduced me to several officers whose names I do not remember, and who asked me to breakfast. I politely declined this civility and made known to the major the object of my visit. He could not tell me where General Lee was or where or how I could get further instructions, but I was informed that the train, which, it was expected would be there with rations for the army, had gone on to Richmond through some blunder of somebody, and that it would probably supply the Yankee commi
