arer killed. Graphic description of it by Lieutenant Colonel C. B. Christian. The sharp combat at Bethesda Church, on the afternoon of May 30, 1864, was the beginning of the series of battles at Cold Harbor, which wound up by the decisive repulse of Grant on June 3rd. Our loss on that occasion, except in Pegram's brigade, was small, says General Early in his report, which is found in Vol. 51 Part 1, Serial 1, of the War Records, Serial Number 107. He was at that time commanding Ewell's corps. Colonel Edward Willis, of Georgia, and Colonel J. B. Terrill, of the Thirteenth Virginia, had both been named as Brigadier Generals, but were killed ere their commissions reached them. Willis was .a brilliant young officer of great promise and of distinguished service. A West Pointer by training, he had won a name which will live in the annals of the Army of Northern Virginia. Colonel J. B. Terrill was a graduate of the Virginia Military Institute; had long commanded the Thirt

. Lee's command, known as the Local Defense Brigade, and attached to his division, placed under my command, then assistant adjutant of Lee's Division, by Lieutenant-General Ewell on the morning of April 2. This was immediately after receipt of the news that our lines had been broken before Petersburg. The last bridge over the Jais command from about 4 A. M., on April 3, until General M. W. Garey's Cavalry Brigade crossed at 8 A. M., and at 8:15 (in pursuance of instructions from Lieutenant-General Ewell given me just before daylight), I burned the bridge with my own hands, assisted by an engineer officer, who had placed barrels of tar along it at intervas. The order for such commissions was issued by President Davis, but did not reach us in the general turmoil and confusion of the last days of Richmond. When General Ewell was ordered by General Lee, on April 2, to evacuate the north branch of the James and march on to Amelia Courthouse, he selected me to command his extreme rear

onfirm the close presence of General Early and Ewell on the field the first day at Gettysburg, and Early to General A. P. Hill before he met General Ewell, telling him that in his opinion assault shem near the muzzle of the guns. I notice General Ewell says, in his report of the battle: So far ate and further advance. I could not hear General Ewell's language, but evidently General Ewell's On the first day neither General Early nor General Ewell could possibly have been fully cognizant oive his views about it, in order to shield General Ewell from adverse criticism.

Just as true an acrdering Stuart to keep on Longstreet's flank, he ordered him to leave Longstreet in Virginia, cross the Potomac, and join Ewell on the Susquehanna—a hundred miles away. It was all the same to Lee at what ford Stuart crossed the Potomac. Heth's Paris. It is the origin of his criticism of Stuart in his History of the War. As for cavalry there were as many with Ewell as there were with Reynolds that day. Buford fought his two brigades dismounted in the morning when Heth attacked him. Thges on either side.
