oody battle of Sharpsburg—Colonel Vance and Molly Cottontail. I want to tell what I know about the part taken in the Sharpsburg campaign by the 15th Virginia Infantry, whose rifles cracked from Bethel to Appomattox. There were eight companies in the regiment, organized and composed of men from Richmond and vicinity—to-wit: Company A, Church Hill, city; Company B, Virginia Life Guard, city; Company C, Patrick Henry Rifles, Hanover; Company D, Old Dominion Guard, city; Company E, Ashland Grays, Hanover; Company G, Henrico Southern Guard, Henrico; Company H, Young Guard, city; Company I, Hanover Grays, Hanover. Having lost its colonel (T. P. August, wounded) and major (John Stewart Walker, killed at Malvern Hill), the regiment recruited and reorganized, broke camp on August 30, 1862, near Culpeper Courthouse, and started on its eventful march for the first invasion beyond the Potomac. On August 31st we bivouacked at Fauquier White Sulphur Springs, September 1st, at Gaine
Departure of Virginia Volunteers. --The 3rd Regiment of Virginia volunteers, consisting of the Young Guard, Capt. Charters, (right company;) Emmett Guard, Capt. Lloyd; Marion Rifles, Capt. Lybrock; Va. Life Guards, Capt. Walker; Ashland Grays, Capt. Tucker; Sidney Guard, Capt. Dance, and Company A, (Henrico Grays, formerly of the 33d Regiment,) Capt. Atkinson, left Richmond yesterday, to the number of 900 men, and took the steamer for the East. Col. Thos. P. August was in command. The Regiment made a very fine appearance. A great many of the friends of the soldiers, ladies and gentlemen, went down to the wharf to bid them adieu. Several of the companies in this Regiment were prepared for service by the exertions of Col. J. H. Richardson, who, though he has no command, is nevertheless every inch a soldier.
