235. A Federal reconnaissance had been sent out under Colonel Buckland, and encountered Cleburne's brigade of Hardee's corpsn, posted a couple of miles out on the Corinth road. Colonel Buckland sent a company to its relief, then followed himself wfront of which Hardee's corps was deploying. Indeed, Colonel Buckland, who made the reconnaissance, says that he advanced t, especially when we were positively informed by men like Buckland, Kilby Smith, and Major Ricker, who went to the front to that night. But even I had to guess its purpose. Colonel Buckland, who made the reconnaissance, states that he discoverd. He made a written report of the skirmish that night. Buckland says: The next day, Saturday, April 5th, I visited ere was a large rebel force immediately in our front. Buckland strengthened his pickets, and adds, Every officer in my bhe bridges over Owl Creek. His Fourth Brigade, under Colonel Buckland, came next in his line, with its left resting on the
n turn, losing the ground he had won, until it had been three times fought over. This was with McClernand's troops, and Buckland's brigade of Sherman's division. Cheatham's division had been formed in the morning on either side of the Pittsburg Snake Creek and the Tennessee River. Sherman in his report says: My command had become decidedly of a mixed character. Buckland's brigade was the only one that retained its organization. Buckland's own report, however, does not sustain this view. Buckland's own report, however, does not sustain this view. He mentions that, in the combat on the Purdy road-The fleeing mass from the left broke through our lines, and many of our men caught the infection and fled with the crowd. Colonel Cockerill became separated from Colonel Sullivan and myself, and was be imagined after reading the foregoing. Colonel Sullivan then marched to the landing for ammunition, and did not join Buckland till next day. This tells the story. It is difficult to see where the organization was. Of the two armies, one was

ds. The army had fallen back, tearing up the road, and General Stuart now prepared to follow, the campaign having come to an end. He was not, however, to be permitted to fall back without molestation, and his command was to be present at the Buckland races. This comic episode will be briefly described, and the event related just as it occurred, without embellishment or exaggeration. General Kilpatrick, commanding the Federal cavalry, had been very much outraged, it would appear, at the hasn cavalry, as it was almost bloodless and resembled a species of trap into which their opponents fell. Nothing amuses troops more than this latter circumstance, and the affair continues to be known among the disbanded troopers of Stuart, as the Buckland races. This engagement ended the campaign as far as the cavalry were concerned, and it was the movements of this arm that I proposed to outline. These were uniformly successful, while those of the infantry, from what appeared to be some fata

fficient width to admit the passage of our army on its anticipated march to Corinth! About two o'clock P. M., Colonel Jesse Hildebrand, commanding Third Brigade, Sherman's Division, to which my regiment was attached, invited me to accompany Colonel Buckland, commanding Fourth Brigade, same division, Colonel Cockerel, Seventieth Ohio Volunteers, and one or two other officers, on a short reconnoissance. We had not advanced half a mile from camp when we were met by squads of the fatigue party sen Forrest's cavalry, and their commander, riding a white horse, was plainly visible. It was manifest their object was not to attack, but watch our movements, and prevent the advance of the reconnoitering parties. The officers (Hildebrand and Buckland) remained some time, then returned to camp to report the situation to General Sherman, and get their respective commands in readiness, as both anticipated an attack. Remaining under orders to watch the movements of the enemy, the afternoon wore

mmense works around Washington held out hospitable arms in case Meade again declined the contest. Nothing was accomplished except to demonstrate that the army which first left Gettysburg first assumed the offensive in Virginia. When General Lee retired, Meade followed, and his advance cavalry, under Kilpatrick, was routed by Stuart wheeling about and attacking it in front, while another portion of his horsemen assailed their flank at Buckland on the Warrenton road in an affair christened Buckland races. I have returned to the Rappahannock, wrote General Lee to his wife, October 19, 1863; I did not pursue with the main army beyond Bristoe or Broad Run. Our advance went as far as Bull Run, where the enemy was intrenched, extending his right as far as Chantilly, in the yard of which he was building a redoubt. I could have thrown him farther back, but I saw no chance of bringing him to battle, and it would have only served to fatigue our troops by advancing farther. If they had b

his cavalry dashed down and captured a small picket guard of six or seven men, stationed some five miles out from Pittsburg on the Corinth road. Colonel [Ralph] Buckland sent relief to the guard at once and soon followed in person with an entire regiment, and General Sherman followed Buckland taking the remainder of a brigade. TBuckland taking the remainder of a brigade. The pursuit was kept up for some three miles beyond the point where the picket guard had been captured, and after nightfall General Sherman returned to camp and reported to me by letter what had occurred. At this time a large body of the enemy was hovering to the west of us, along the line of the Mobile and Ohio railroad. My a April that I did not leave Pittsburg each night until an hour when I felt there would be no further danger before the morning. On Friday the 4th, the day of Buckland's advance, I was very much injured by my horse falling with me, and on me, while I was trying to get to the front where firing had been heard. The night was one
tery. Hastily reconnoitring the position, I ordered Mower's and Matthie's brigades of Tuttle's division to deploy forward to the right and left of the road, and Buckland's to close up. Waterhouse's and Spoore's batteries were placed on commanding ground and soon silenced the enemy's guns, when he retired about half a mile into th the course he took in following the enemy, occupied the ground to the left of the road, and Matthie's brigade to the right, the two batteries in the centre, and Buckland's brigade in reserve. As we emerged from the woods to our front, and as far to the left as we could see, appeased a line of intrenchments, and the enemy kept f the road, artillery disposed on the right and left to cover the point where the road enters the enemy's intrenchments. Tuttle's division was held on the road, Buckland's brigade deployed in line to the rear of Blair, and the other two brigades in the road under cover. At the appointed signal the line advanced, but the ground t
ed my attack stubbornly, but once broken, the rout was complete. I pursued them from within three miles of Warrenton to Buckland, the horses at full speed the whole distance, the enemy retreating in great confusion. Major-General Lee had attackedGeneral Ewell following with his infantry. General Fitz Lee's division of cavalry had gone round by New-Baltimore and Buckland's, and reached Bristoe on the evening of the fight there, just as it was over. General Stuart came up at the same time,out of Culpeper, ruined at Buck land's, the loss of his favorite mare must appear to him the unkindest cut of all. At Buckland's, General Stuart captured a number of wagons and mules, and the headquarter baggage of General Custer; his papers, clotuse, and intrench, under the impression that the rebel army was in their rear. They got Kilpatrick between two fires at Buckland's, and broke to pieces his entire command — killing, capturing, or driving back on their heavy infantry reserves the bes
The First brigade moved on the pike, the Second moved on a road to the left of and parallel to the pike, but soon encountered the enemy, and drove him as far as Gainesville, where the entire command bivouacked during the night. The First Vermont cavalry, under Colonel Sawyer, deserves great credit for the rapidity with which they forced the enemy to retire. At daybreak on the morning of the nineteenth, my brigade took the advance and skirmished with the enemy's cavalry from Gainesville to Buckland; at the latter point I found him strongly posted upon the south bank of Broad Run. The position for his artillery was well chosen. After a fruitless attempt to effect a crossing in his front, I succeeded in turning his left flank so completely as to force him from his position. Having driven him more than a mile from the stream, I threw out my pickets, and ordered my men to prepare their dinner. From the inhabitants of Buckland I learned that the forces of the enemy with whom we had bee
