rted for instructions, General Lee especially cautioned him to let his men know that he would not send them unless they were willing to go. It was an inspiring sight when those brave fellows marched past their beloved chieftain. Every cap was waved and cheer followed cheer. General Lee, superbly mounted, gracefully bared his head, and uttered not a word, while the troops in the works joined in the cheering as those tired and hungry heroes went to the front. On the 18th of May, while General Early, temporarily in command of A. P. Hill's corps, and Generals Wilcox and Lane and a number of staff officers were standing near the brick kiln, the enemy honored the group with a short but rapid artillery fire, under which Nicholson was severely wounded. Major Thomas J. Wooten, of the 18th, was then ordered to take charge of the corps, and he continued in command until the surrender at Appomattox Courthouse. Young, cool and brave, but modest as a girl, he was a worthy successor of Knox a

We guarded prisoners 'til the evening of the third day, when we were senames river before we set it afire, and had to swim the river. Hunter and Crook were thus delayed by McCausland until General Early could be sent to save Lynchburg. As a reward for the gallant conduct of this squadron in that march a month's furlouWhen we returned from this furlough to the army we again advanced down the Valley of Virginia in 1864 in front of General Jubal A. Early, in his raid on Washington city. Our regiment and some of our company, were in the battle of Monocacy, where General Lew Wallace was routed. The cavalry was very highly commended by General Early for the very gallant manner in which the enemy's flank was turned by it. On our return from Washington, McCausland with his brigade, and General Bradley Johnso

er before sunrise at a mill near the appointed place. This done, your friend was ordered to return posthaste to Harrisonburg and fix up his office and the wires again. That long black office table, the telegrapher's key still attached to it, is still in existence in Rockingham. It is alive with reminiscences of the Valley campaigns; of the Laurel Brigade and its brave dashing commander; of Fitzhugh Lee, and the lamented Ashby, and of Breckinridge, and a host of other splendid men; of Jubal A. Early, the imperturbable, who often desired of his young friend a little spirits and complained sometimas it had a taste of rotten apples, in his high-pitched, drawling voice. Custer's rear guard opened fire on our men that morning across the roof of the residence of Dr. M. from the lofty bluff beyond the river. The enemy soon drew off, however, as Rosser advanced in pursuit—and Major M., of Rosser's staff, dismounting a moment, begged the little maid whose home was here to play for us all

se name has become immortal — the fame of its surgeon is inseparably united to that of the heroic band that stood like a stone wall in the face of assailing hosts. After the death of General Jackson, Surgeon McGuire served as chief surgeon of the Second Corps of the Army of Northern Virginia, under Lieutenant-General Ewell. After defeating Milroy at Winchester they were engaged at Gettysburg. Surgeon McGuire afterwards acted as Medical Director of the Army of the Valley, with Lieutenant-General Early, to Lynchburg, and the campaign of the Valley down to Frederick City and Monocacy and almost to Washington, and then at Winchester, Fisher's Hill and Waynesboroa, where Dr. McGuire was captured, and paroled for fifteen days and then released. He rejoined the 2nd Corps under General Gordon, and remained as Medical Director till the surrender at Appomattox. Some notable Innovations.

ty and tenderness all care was given to the great General on the day of his passing away by his faithful friend. Perhaps there was no man to whom Jackson gave as much of the opening of his thought and of his love as he gave to Dr. McGuire. As long as Stonewall Jackson's name shall live among men, the name of Hunter McGuire will be linked with his in unfading honor. After the death of Jackson, Dr. McGuire served with the same loyalty and the same success under General Ewell and under General Early. By General Lee he was known and trusted in the highest degree. Throughout the Army of Northern Virginia he was known with a rising fame, and admired and trusted by a great company of officers of all grades, and by a greater company of those noble men, the private soldiers of the Confederacy. To many he had given relief by his skill, and many by his care had been removed to health again. To the end of the war, and since the end, he was the same large-hearted friend of all Confederate
