t. Joseph Norcom, with General Jones's third brigade, at McLain's Ford. One rifled 6-pounder and one smooth 6-pounder, under command of Lieutenant J. J. Garnett, Lieutenant L. A. Adams, (reported sick after being engaged in the battle of the 18th inst.,) with General Longstreet's fourth brigade, at Blackburn's Ford. Five guns-three smooth 6-pounders and two rifled 6-pounders — under command of Lieutenant C. W. Squires, Lieutenant J. B. Richardson, Lieutenant J. B. Whittington, with Colonel Early's fifth brigade, then bivouacking near McLean's farm-house--thirteen guns. At about seven o'clock on the morning of the 21st an order was communicated to me to follow, with the battery under Lieutenant Squires, the brigade of General Jackson, then on the march towards Stone Bridge. Every preparation having been previously made, the order to mount was immediately given, and the battery moved forward, arriving at Lewis's farm-house, just in time to receive the first fire from the enemy
guns and two companies of Virginia cavalry. Early's brigade, consisting of Kemper's 7th, Early'sEarly's 24th regiment of Virginia volunteers, Hays' 7th regiment Louisiana volunteers, and three rifle pieeneral Longstreet sent for reenforcements from Early's brigade, which I had anticipated by directing the advance of Gen. Early, with two regiments of infantry and two pieces of artillery. As these cthe same time, two rifle guns, brought up with Early's brigade, were moved down in the field to theo the south bank. Meanwhile, the remainder of Early's infantry and artillery had been called up — he action, to a position in reserve, leaving Col. Early to occupy the field with his brigade and Gary to the success of our arms on that day. Col. Early brought his brigade into position, and subsen, in advance of the Ford. The regiments of Early's brigade were commanded by Colonel Harry Hayshich was made by details from Longstreet's and Early's brigades, on the 18th July, of that part of
ge front on the left, and bring up our reserves to that part of the field. This movement was superintended in person by General Johnston, General Beauregard remaining to direct the movements in front. At the time when Gen. Kirby Smith and General Early came up with their divisions and appeared on the right of the enemy, our forces on the left occupied the chord of the are of a circle, of which the arc itself was occupied by the enemy — the extremes of their line flanking ours. The appearance of Smith's and Early's brigades, and their charge on the enemy's right, broke the lines of the latter and threw them into confusion, when shortly afterwards the rout became complete. General Beauregard acknowledges the great generosity of General Johnston in fully according to him (Gen. Beauregard) the right to carry out the plans he had formed with relation to this campaign, in yielding the command of the field after examining and cordially, approving the plan of battle, and in the effe
into the hottest of the fight. Assistant-Surgeon Sprague, Medical Department, attended the wounded with as much self-possession as though no battle was raging around him, not only took charge of the wounded as they were brought to him, but found time to use a musket with good effect from time to time against the enemy. Col. Deitzler, First Kansas.--He led his regiment into a galling fire as coolly and as handsomely as if on drill. He was wounded twice. Major Haldeman, First Kansas.--Early in the action he led four companies of his regiment (which had been held in reserve) gallantly, cheering them on with the cry of Forward, men, for Kansas and the old flag. Col. Mitchell, of the Second Kansas.--He fell severely wounded in the thickest of the fight, and as he was carried from the field, he met a member of my staff, and called out, For God's sake, support my regiment. Lieut.-Col. Blair, Second Kansas.--This excellent soldier took command of the regiment when Col. Mitchell
