Sherman's battery. We are requested to insert the following: It is generally understood that the celebrated battery of Sherman consisted of sixteen guns, and as it is not probable that all these guns were placed in immediate juxtaposition, hence the fact that they were not all captured by the same charge or the same regiment, and hence the conflicting claims set up by different regiments to the honor of taking them. From accounts received by the writer from eye-witnesses at Manassas, he feels entirely warranted in saying that the 18th Regiment of Virginia Volunteers, under Col. Withers, certainly participated in the final capture of some of Sherman's guns, and that Lieut. Shields, of the Black Eagle Company, Cumberland county, belonging to that regiment, assisted by a gentleman named Evans, an officer in one of the South Carolina Regiments, actually turned one of the guns and fired it several times on the retreating enemy. Justice.
