and the artillery arrived, it was too late to accomplish anything further before night, and the capture of the other works by assault would evidently require the co-operation of the other troops around Winchester. The artillery fire upon the enemy's position and his masses of infantry was continued until a stop was put to it by the approach of darkness. Hays' brigade was formed in line on the crest of the ridge behind the captured works, with Smith's in rear. The 57th North Carolina, Colonel Godwin, was sent for, to occupy a portion of the works on the north of the Pughtown road, Colonel Avery being left with two regiments, to protect the artillery which had not been brought forward and guard against a surprise in our rear, the 54th North Carolina Regiment being still left on picket on the Romney road, and the front and flanks of our main position being watched by pickets thrown out. The men then lay down on their arms to rest from the fatigues of the day. During my operations

ratively slight loss, considering the nature of the ground, and the difficulties by which they were surrounded. Hoke's brigade fell back to the position from which it had advanced to bring off its wounded commander, and was then re-formed by Colonel Godwin of the 57th North Carolina. Hays' brigade fell back to a position on the slope of the hill, where it remained for some time awaiting a further advance, and was then drawn back, bringing off four battle flags captured on Cemetery Hill. Gordo was then too late. He did not advance, and the fighting for the day closed-Johnson's attack on the left having been ended by the darkness, leaving him possession of part of the enemy's works in the woods. Before light next morning Hays and Godwin, who had taken position on Gordon's left and right, respectively, were withdrawn to the rear and subsequently formed in line on the street first occupied by Hays, Gordon being left to hold the position in front. During the night, by directions o

General Lee direr, which was under the enemy's artillery fire, Godwin's three brigades were put in the trenches covely cut off from retreat. An attack made on Godwin's front simultaneously with that on Hays' righ by the 54th North Carolina Regiment, and when Godwin learned that Hays' line was broken, he endeavole river was in their rear. Nevertheless, Colonel Godwin continued to struggle, rallying and encourross the bridge to direct General Hays and Colonel Godwin to send and have rations brought up for thd in good spirits and that he then went to Colonel Godwin, whom he found all right, but as he was ree disaster being sent to General Lee at once.

ounded, and some prisoners had been taken. But on our side, Major General Rodes had been killed, in the very moment of triumph, while conducting the attack of his division with great gallantry and skill, and this was a heavy blow to me. Brigadier General Godwin of Ramseur's division had been killed, and Brigadier General York of Gordon's division had lost an arm. Other brave men and officers had fallen, and we could illy bear the loss of any of them. Had I then had a fresh body of troops to counsels had been of great service to me in the trying circumstances with which I had found myself surrounded. He fell at his post, doing a soldier's and patriot's duty to his country, and his memory will long be cherished by his comrades. General Godwin and Colonel Patton were both most gallant and efficient officers, and their loss was deeply felt, as was that of all the brave officers and men who fell in this battle. The enemy's loss in killed and wounded was very heavy, and some prisoner

under French, was directed to cross the Rappahannock at Kelly's Ford; his right, under Sedgwick, at Rappahannock Station. French progressed without much opposition, but Sedgwick found a tete-de-pont with lines of rifle trenches on the north side of his crossing point. This was a fort or redoubt, being in part some old intrenchments, but without a ditch and open to the south, with which it was connected by a pontoon bridge. It was occupied by two of Early's brigades under Colonels Penn and Godwin, with four pieces of artillery. Daylight was fast disappearing; Russell's division of the Sixth Corps was in line of battle in its front, with Upton's brigade deployed as skirmishers. Russell thought he could carry the work, so Sedgwick gave the order. The conditions were favorable to success; the wind blowing strong from south to north, the firing could not be heard by the supporting batteries on the south side, so Russell stormed the redoubt with so much dash that it was captured befor
e most acceptable to our commissariat! The Southern Army are having an armistice of ten days, for the inhabitants of Atlanta to get off from their homes. Exiled by Sherman, my heart bleeds for them. May the good Lord have mercy upon them, and have them in His holy keeping! September 21st, 1864. Bad news this morning. General Early has had a defeat in the Valley, near Winchester, and has fallen back to Strasburg. Our loss reported heavy. Major-General Rodes killed, and Brigadier-General Godwin and General Fitz Lee wounded. No other casualties heard of; and I dread to hear more. September 28th, 1864. Mr. P. came home, and at once decided that we were entitled to the rooms. By this arrangement we are greatly relieved. The family who occupied them have moved off, and Mr.-- having convinced the third party of his mistake, has taken off his hands the coal and flour which he had stored away, and now all is straight. The Colonel and ourselves moved our goods and chatt

orps, composing the left wing. Sedgwick's column marched for the Rappahannock, at Rappahannock Station, and French's moved toward the same stream at Kelley's Ford. Lee, then in position near Culpepper Court-House, had outposts at these crossings. At Rappahannock Station Sedgwick found the strong works thrown up previously by the Nationals on the north side of the river, and now covering a pontoon bridge, occupied by about two thousand men, of Early's division of Ewell's corps, under Colonel Godwin, composed of Hayes's Louisiana brigade, and Hoke's brigade of North Carolinians, just sent over. These works, consisting of a fort, two redoubts, and lines of rifle-pits, were on a ridge, with an open lowland traversed by a muddy ditch, and a dry moat, deep and broad, between them and the approaching Nationals. Sedgwick reached the vicinity at noon, and behind a hill, a mile away, he formed a battle-line, and then gradually advanced toward the river on each flank of the works, with Gen

r, This fine mansion stood on the corner of Braddock and Piccadilly Streets, in Winchester. where he wrote a hasty dispatch to the Secretary of War, saying: We have just sent the enemy whirling through Winchester, and are after them to-morrow. We captured two thousand five hundred prisoners, five pieces of artillery, nine battle-flags, and all the rebel dead and wounded. It was estimated that Early lost about 1,000 men, besides the prisoners. Among his killed were Generals Rodes and Godwin. Sheridan's loss was about 3,000. Their wounded in Winchester amount to some three thousand. Early did not halt until he reached the very strong position of Fisher's Hill, beyond Strasburg, about twenty miles south of Winchester. Sheridan kept his promise to be after the retreating Confederates, and he appeared in front of Fisher's Hill on the 22d Sept., 1864. in full force. This was considered the strongest defensive position in the valley. Fisher's Hill is a high eminence between
