r to move into Pennsylvania and join Ewell on the Susquehanna. It merely advised General Ewell, who had been authorized to move towards the Susquehanna, that Stuart would be on his right and in communication with him during his march, and not after he reached the Susquehanna. When on June 22nd, Ewell was authorized to move towards the Susquehanna he was in Maryland, opposite Shepherdstown, and Anderson's division of Hill's corps was to be at Shepherdstown the next day—which would relieve Early's division and enable Ewell to move his whole corps into Pennsylvania, with Jenkins' cavalry in advance and Imboden on his left. If Hooker was moving northward, Stuart was to cross the Potomac with three brigades of his cavalry, take position on Ewell's right, place himself in communication with him, guard his flanks, etc., and he was also to take charge of Jenkins' brigade. The other divisions of Hill's corps were advancing to the Potomac at Shepherdstown. Longstreet had been withdrawn

ad, the father of our old chief, graduated at West Point in 1803, fought in Canada, closed the Seminole war, and was, when he died in 1845, second in command in the regular army. Miss Stanley, who became his wife, was a native of the old North State, and so it happened that Lewis A. Armistead was born at Newbern, N. C., in 1817. As a matter of course, the young Lewis entered West Point in 1836. Here, however, his career was cut short. He became involved in a personal conflict with Jubal A. Early, who had insulted him on the parade ground, and cracking that worthy's head with a mess-hall plate, as the story runs, was retired from West Point; but in 1839 entered the regular army as lieutenant in the Sixth Regiment of Infantry, and fought against the Seminoles under Zachary Taylor and under his own father. During the war with Mexico he did splendid service. He led the storming party at Chapultepec, and was brevetted Captain and then Major for gallantry displayed at Contreras, and

ht on Wednesday, the 17th of September, 1862, from 3 A. M. to night. The two armies held their respective positions all the next day without firing a gun. Lee crossed the Potomac into Virginia early on the morning of the 19th. Col. Hodges writing on the 22nd of September, says that General Armistead was wounded early on the morning of the 17th and that he took command of the brigade and that he was still in command, but expected Gen. Armistead to be able to return to duty in a few days. Gen. Early in his official report of the battle says: Shortly after the repulse of the enemy Col. Hodges, in command of Armistead's brigade, reported to me, and I placed it in line in the position occupied by my brigade and placed the latter in line on the edge of the plateau which has been mentioned and parallel to the Hagerstown road under cover. This battle was the most destructive battle of the war for the time engaged. In his letter last mentioned Col. Hodges says: We have had a very hard ti

As soon as Itle while the battle was on. The fact was that Early had been so active and aggressive attacking Shied of the fact that Kershaw was gone and that Early's display of force had been more seeming than erwhelming force, he was checked and beaten by Early in the battle, which for sturdy valor has no sing this tremendous force, which over numbered Early fully four to one, and notwithstanding the fall of the gallant and efficient Rodes, Early extricated his army, and the battle closed, with the losses of Early (plus the loss in his cavalry, which for all of September was sixty killed and 288 wo), Sheridan's force would still largely exceed Early's.

My recollection is General Early gave me this order in person, because I reve described, and there it is certain that General Early joined me and rode with me slowly at the hordon's fire, which I did not understand. General Early then rode slowly in the direction of the tttery, and had expressed a wish to see me. General Early heard this, and in a kind manner said to mregard to my movements with my company and General Early.

r shoes. The Records show that A. P. Hill took Pender's and Heth's divisions and two battalions of artillery to make what he calls in his report to cover his blunder, a reconnaissance; but which it is clear he intended as nothing but a foray. In my book (page 152) I say, Now Heth's story is contradicted by A. P. Hill, the commander of the corps, whose report says that he put Pender's division in to support Heth's that was in distress, and that about 2:30 in the afternoon, Ewell with Early and Rodes' divisions came in and formed a right angle to his line and the field was won. Just as true an account of the battle as Heth's letter can be found in the Pickwick Papers. Rodes' report shows that Heth's story is a fable. The truth is that when Heth, early in the morning went into action, General Lee was ten miles away west of the mountain, Heth tries to make it appear that Lee was on the field.
