In Longstreet's corps the State was represented by Jenkins's and Evans' brigade, the Hampton Legion, then in Hood's brigade, and the Fifteenth regiment, and James's battalion in Drayton's brigth battalion, 70. Supposing their strength to have been the same at Manassas, this brigade would have had present 1,589. Evans, 2,200, Reports A. N. V., volume II, page 290. Hampton Legion (estimate) 300, General T. M. Logan. Drayton's brigade in the army as above, 1,749 occurred in the South Carolina regiments as follows: Gregg's brigade lost 619, Jenkins, 404, Evans, 631, Hampton Legion, 74, and the Fifteenth regiment 21, equals 1,749. South Carolina thus lost more than one-fourth, or , one of the most promising sons of the State, and Colonel Moore, of the Second Rifles, fell, doing their duty nobly.

e to call attention to the valuable assistance I received from Captain John S. Cleveland in the management of the right wing of my regiment, and Captain T. T. Clay on the left. Also to the heroic conduct of T. W. Fitzgeral, of company A, who was color-bearer. He pressed gallantly forward, and was badly wounded far in front. I. A. Howard, of company B, Color- Corporal, then took the flag and remained firmly at his post. He was almost instantly killed. The colors were then taken by Sergeant W. S. Evans, of company F, who planted them defiantly in the face of the foe during the remainder of the fight, always advancing promptly to the front when the order was given. The general conduct of officers and men was beyond all praise. J. C. Rogers, Major Commanding Fifth Texas Regiment. Report of Colonel V. H.

ree will give us 23,523 men as Lee's strength in infantry and artillery at the battle of Sharpsburg. This is, of course, on the supposition that the ratio in the twenty-six brigades was the same for the other twenty-four. Let us examine this by the light from the reports of the brigades themselves, so far as they are given: Robert Ransom's, 1,600; Lawton's, 1,150; Wofford's, 854; Rodes's, 800; Barksdale, 800; Walker, 700; Trimble, 700; Hays, 550; Benning, 400; Cobb, 250; Stonewall, 250; Evans, 209; Kemper, 350; Garnett, 200; total, 8,813. The single rule of three gives the strength of the forty brigades on the ratio of these fourteen, to be 25, 180. So the approximate results reached from the reports of division and brigade commanders differ only by 1,557 men. Now let us see what estimate we can get from the reports of regimental commanders, so far as given in this same Volume XIII. We have: Eleventh Georgia regiment, 140; Eighteenth Georgia regiment, 176; Fifty-third
