ion where it did execution. General Walker approached on the Hillsboro road. At the foot of Loudon heights, he sent Colonel Cooke with the Twenty-seventh North Carolina to occupy the heights. Batteries were then established, and on the 14th engaigade, under Manning and then under Col. E. D. Hall, of the Forty-sixth North Carolina, included the Twenty-seventh, Col. J. R. Cooke; the Forty-sixth, Colonel Hall, and the Forty-eighth, Col. R. C. Hill, North Carolina regiments; and Ransom's brigad a mile to the left of General Hill, and he detached the Twenty-seventh North Carolina and the Third Arkansas, under Col. J. R. Cooke, of the Carolina regiment, to fill this gap, and well did they carry out their instructions. General McLaws' divisnever surpassed. Fragments of commands fought with a splendid determination. As General Longstreet says, the brave Col. J. R. Cooke (Twenty-seventh North Carolina) showed front to the enemy when he no longer had a cartridge. Such instances of gal

Before the first assault, General Ransom had brought up Cooke's brigade to the crest of Marye's hill, and during the assault Cooke took the Twenty-seventh and Forty-sixth and part of the Fifteenth North Carolina into the sunken road. The Forty-eighth North Carolina, under Walkup, fought on top of the crestl Confederate losses were: killed, 595; wounded, 4,074; missing, 653. North Carolina losses were: killed, 173; wounded, 1,294. It will thus be seen that just a little less than a third of the killed and the wounded were from North Carolina. General Cooke was among the wounded. During the interval between the battle of Seven Pines and the battle of Fredericksburg, there were not many important military events in North Carolina. The duty of organizing new regiments still went on. The Fifty-

The total Federal killed and wounded in this series of battles reached 12,216; they also lost 5,711 prisoners. Rebellion Records, XXV, I, pp. 185, 191. The total Confederate loss in killed and wounded was as follows: killed, 1,581; wounded, 8,700; total, 10,281. North Carolina had fewer regiments than usual with General Lee at this time. Both Ransom's and Cooke's brigades were on other duty. There were present in General Lee's army in these battles, 124 regiments and 5 battalions of infantry. North Carolina had present 24 regiments and 1 battalion. Nearly exactly, then, one-fifth of the Confederate army was from North Carolina, and one-fifth of the battle casualties would have been, therefore, that State's fair share of loss. However, of the total Confederate casualties—killed, 1,581; wounded, 8,700—North Carolina lost in killed, 557; in wounde

An expedition under General Getty was sent by the Federals to destroy the bridges over the South Anna and tear up the railroads in that vicinity.

Hall's and William MacRae's regiments under Maj. A. C. McAlister, who repulsed them repeatedly in handsome style. Col. John A. Baker's regiment [Third North Carolina cavalry] occupied the right of our line and behaved very well. A raiding party under Gen. E. E. Potter, in July, inflicted much damage on some of the towns in eastern North Carolina. At Rocky Mount this force destroyed the bridge over Tar river, and also mills, depots, factories, and large quantities of flour and 800 bales of cotton; at Tarboro some

Chapter 13: North Carolina events, 1863-64 Federal Treatment of the eastern part of the State military operations in the State Ransom Recovers Suffolk victory of Hoke and Cooke at Plymouth gallant fighting of the Albemarle spring campaign, 1864, in Virginia. There were no large military operations in North Carolina contemporaneous with the Bristoe and Mine Run campaigns. Frequent expeditions were sent out from New Bern by the Federals. These were frequently fired upon by the militia, but, as the local troops were not regularly organized, the expeditions generally came and went without much molestation. Whitford's battalion was often active and useful in deterring such raids. On December 30th, near Greenville, there was a brisk skirmish between Colonel McChesney, commanding a Federal cavalry and artillery force, and Major Moore, with some companies of the Third North Carolina cavalry. The close of 1863 was gloomy enough in eastern North Carolina. Moore thu
nt in the army thus posted, so far as may be made out from the meager reports, the following North Carolina troops: Martin's, Clingman's, Daniel's (now commanded by Brig.-Gen. Bryan Grimes), Ramseur's (now under Brig.-Gen. W. R. Cox), Johnston's, Cooke's, Kirkland's (now under MacRae), Lane's, Scales', and Hoke's (under Lewis and later Godwin) brigades, and the remnants of the First and Third regiments subsequently assigned to General Cox's brigade. Then operating on the flanks was Gordon's gderals and the Confederates intrenched behind it. The loss of the two attacking corps was 2,200 men. That afternoon General Lee telegraphed to the secretary of war: This afternoon the enemy attacked General Heth and were handsomely repulsed by Cooke's and Kirkland's brigades. On the afternoon of the 2d, the divisions of Gordon, Rodes and Heth were ordered to move down the front of the Confederate line in an effort to break the Federal flank. This movement brought on sharp fighting, says

At 5 o'clock, General Hill sent forward three North Carolina brigades, Cooke's, Lane's (under General Conner) and MacRae's, to make a second attempt. Captain Graham in his men made, in part, a good resistance. They were, however, forced to give way in confusion.
