General Bayard, as no other of our guns could carry so far as to the point where he was struck. At Upperville, on November second, this gun put to flight two Yankee batteries, and cavalry and artillery, at the distance of three miles and a half. Grimes's brigade occupied the extreme right of our front line on the night of the thirteenth, and held the same position for the next two days. This brigade also furnished a hundred sharpshooters to support Stuart, and these were constantly skirmishing ss to lend their efforts to achieve it, their patient endurance of a fatiguing march the night before the battle, and their general subordination and good conduct. Under tried veterans as brigade commanders — Rodes, Colquitt, Pierson; Doles, and Grimes — I feel confident that they will do well whenever called upon to meet the infernal Yankees.

The enemy discovered this situation of affairs, and pushed a brigade to the right and rear of Colonel Grimes, and seven companies of Colonel Cox's second, with the intention of capturing their commands. This advance was made under a terrible direct fire of musketry and artillery. The move necessitated a retrograde movement on the part of Colonels Grimes and Cox, which was executed in order, but with the loss of some prisoners, who did not hear the command to retire. C
dely these statements vary from the whole truth. As every work on the subject of the war to which the writer has had access pretends to describe this incident with more or less minuteness, the facts connected therewith may be considered of sufficient consequence to justify an appeal to the testimony as found in the official records. The substance of what is herein related may be found in the evidence given before the committee of the senate which investigated the matter, and of which Mr. Senator Grimes was the acting chairman. This historic perversion has finally assumed so considerable a magnitude as to be found in the newspaper and the magazine; in the incidental summaries of the biographer, in the more elaborate disquisitions of the historian, and in the quasi authoritative reports of the war department. In his history of the American conflict, Mr. Greeley introduces the fiction with commendable brevity; Mr. Lossing, according to the character and purpose of his work, goes mor
