gh time, and pierced far beyond the already boasted name of Kentuckians. The comtemplation of that morning fires one's soul with a never-ceasing poem. If the Fourth regiment had never advanced a hundred yards after crushing the two lines of troops in front of it, its name would still have been immortal. It was about 9 o'clock, when by slow manoeuvering (for we were in the reserve corps), we passed through a field in a small valley in which Morgan's squadron was drawn up in line. Capt. John Churchill and his men sang Cheer, boys, cheer, and our boys responded by affectionate salutation or pleasant repartee. Then and there we begot for ourselves a love that lasts as long as our lives. We were Kentuckians far away from home. They had just distinguished themselves, and we felt sure we would soon be flushed with victory. We then filed down the valley into a woody swamp, where we faced toward the enemy, and threw out skirmishers. The First platoon of Company A and the Second plato

Churchill's division was there, Cleburne's a few milesbivouac upon the banks of Rockcastle river. Churchill's column was already moving. Day dawned upolong and rapid march, and required rest; and Churchill's division coming up soon after, the entire with the artillery on its left. The head of Churchill's column had barely reached the field, marchthe enemy by the undulations of the ground. Churchill was ordered to take a circuitous route throuving him from the field in great confusion. Churchill barely reached his position — in time to poue fight, at long range, with rifled cannon.

The enemy's gunboats and batteries had now complete command of our position, taking it on the right flank, front and rear, literally raking the entire position. It was at this particular crisis, about 4.30 o'clock P. M., that my attention was attracted by the cry of Raise the while flag, by order of General Churchill; pass the order up the line, and on looking to the left, to my great astonishment, I saw a number of small white flags displayed in Wilks' Regiment, 24th Texas Cavalry (dismounted), from the right company so far as I could see toward the left. As I could not believe it possible that a white flag could be thus treacherously displayed in any part our lines with impunity, I was deceived, and by this sudden and simultaneous display of white flags, as well as by the cessation of all firing

The fact is that since the battle of Sedgmoor, fought August 5, 1665, between the Duke of Monmouth, some 6,000 strong, and the forces of King James II., under John Churchill, afterwards the Duke of Marlborough, in which Monmouth lost a thousand and Churchill some 300 slain, no conflict deserving the name of battle has been fought on English ground. Zzzsecret of England's demonstration. While it is true thChurchill some 300 slain, no conflict deserving the name of battle has been fought on English ground. Zzzsecret of England's demonstration. While it is true that during this domestic peace of over 200 years, the British have carried the English flag victorious from the Seine to the Indus, from Calcutta to Quebec, from Madrid to Cairo, it has been more by the skill of diplomacy and strategy, and especially more by sea power than by the movements of great forces. If we except the American campaigns and Wellington's operations against Napoleon, all the English fighting done in two centuries would scarce amount to that of General Lee in the single count
