From the leader of a scouting party of a few men, he rose to the position of commander of a minimum regiment of adventurers, who, one of them said, Moseby himself declared, could only be held together by the hope of plunder. See Partisan Life with Moseby, by John Scott. One of his most trusted and representative men seems to have been a Sergeant Ames, of the Fifth New York Cavalry, who deserted, Moseby's biographer, Marshall Crawford, says, because he could not fight for the eternal negro. Moseby took Ames to his bosom, and whenever any thing particularly revolting was to be done, the deserter appears to have been employed. His fitness for service with the guerrilla chief may be inferred from the fact, exultingly set forth in a history of Moseby's exploits by one of his followers (Major Scott), that when, on one occasion, the command encountered Ames's old regiment (Fifth New York), one of the latter recognized h

The brigade of McCandless and a regiment of Fisher's pushed toward the Emmettsburg road, driving before them an unsupported battery upon a brigade of Hood's division, which made a feeble resistance and fle

It is not the province of the writer to sit in judgment upon this matter, and he leaves the recorded facts with readers competent to do so. On the 28th of August, an elegant sword was presented to General Meade by the officers of the division of Pennsylvania Reserves--a token of affection and esteem which had been ordered before the Battle of Gettysburg. The presentation ceremonies took place at the Headquarters of General Crawford, in Virginia, and the presentation speech was made by him. The handle of the sword was gold, inlaid with diamonds and rubies, and on the scabbard were inscribed the names of eleven battles. in which the Pennsylvania Reserves had been engaged, from Mechanicsville to Gettysburg.

And when Warren, on the right, attempted to connect with Burnside, by sending Crawford's division in that direction,, an overwhelming force fell upon him with almost fatal weight.
