the Virginia battalion, under Maj. E. B. Montague; five pieces of artillery, under Maj. (afterward secretary of war) G. W. Randolph, of the Richmond howitzers; and the First North Carolina, under Colonel Hill, occupied the inside of the works. The companies composing the North Carolina regiment, which had the envied distinction of being the initial troops to enter organized battle, were: Edgecombe Guards, Capt. J. L. Bridgers; Hornet's Nest Riflemen (Mecklenburg), Capt. L. S. Williams; Charlotte Grays, Capt. E. A. Ross; Orange light infantry, Capt. R. J. Ashe; Buncombe Rifles, Capt. William McDowell; Lafayette light infantry (Cumberland), Capt. J. B. Starr; Burke Rifles, Capt. C. M. Avery; Fayetteville light infantry, Capt. Wright Huske; Enfield Blues, Capt. D. B. Bell; Southern Stars (Lincoln), Capt. W. J. Hoke. The whole force was nominally under the command of Col. J. B. Magruder, and numbered between 1,200 and 1,400 men.

ed in a joint pic-nic of mammoth proportions. More than five hundred persons were present—men, women and children—and when they were well served from the groaning, overloaded table a like number could have been amply supplied. Your senior can well attest the fact that for rousing pic-nics, with all the edible meats, fruits and dainties, this neighborhood cannot be beaten. This was the first effort since the war to reorganize Company D, of the Eighteenth regiment—the old Prospect Rifle Grays—and twenty-five answered to the roll call, and eleven of other companies of this regiment were found present, mainly of the Thornton Picket Camp, of Farmville. J. B. Glenn, who left an arm at Boonsboroa, delivered an address of welcome. Lieutenant J. P. Glenn, whose bravery and heroism was displayed on near a hundred battle-fields, offered thanksgiving and prayer. A grand record. Mr. Charles Glenn gave a graphic history of the company from its formation to its surrender. On its f

Henry Wayt, commissary. Dr. Peter Hines, surgeon. Drs. Haywood and Moore, assistant surgeons. Rev. Edwin A. Yates, chaplain. Messrs. Wayt and Yates were appointed from the ranks of the Hornets' Nest Riflemen. A change has been made in the companies composing the regiment. The Fayetteville Independent company has been substituted for the Randalsburg Riflemen, so the regiment stands thus: A—Edgecombe Guards—Captain Bridgers. B—Hornets' Nest Rifles—Captain Williams. C—Charlotte Grays—Captain Ross. D—Orange Light Infantry—Captain Ashe. E—Buncombe Riflemen—Captain McDowell. F—La Fayette Light Infantry—Captain Starr. G—Burke Rifles—Captain Avery. H—Fayetteville Independent Light Infantry—Captain Huske. I—Enfield Blues—Captain Bell. K—Southern Stars—Captain Hoke.

small body of infantry. It was believed that by a well-planned and rapidly executed night attack this redoubt might be stormed and the guns captured. At any rate, the scheme seemed so feasible that a picked body of men was formed, the volunteers being ignorant of their destination and being only forwarned that they were composing a forlorn hope. As my memory serves me, these volunteers were taken from the following commands, at the rate of six or eight from each: Edgecombe Guards, Charlotte Grays, Hornet's Nest Riflemen, Orange Light Infantry, Lafayette Light Infantry, Burke Rifles, Independent Light Infantry,. Enfield Rifles, Southern Stars, Bertie Light Infantry, Chowan Light Infantry, Stuart's and Montague's Virginia Light Infantry, twelve dismounted men of Douthat's Virginia Cavalry. After this lapse of time my recollection is indistinct, and I can recall by name of these volunteers only J. B. Smith, R. M. Orrell, James T. Rose, Theodore Wardell and J. W. Hurlst, of my ow
