About the end of January the Confederate Government desired the adoption of measures for the exchange of all prisoners taken by the armies of the belligerents, and the Secretary of War instructed me to propose to General McClellan the proper arrangements for that object. These instructions were obeyed on the 1st of February, by transmitting the following letter of that date to General McClellan, by the hands of Lieutenant-Colonel Julian Harrison, of the Virginia cavalry, who was selected to bear it on account of the interest attaching to the subject, and its importance. Sir: I am instructed by the Secretary of War of the Confederate States to propose to you to enter into arrangements for a general exchange of prisoners of war, on terms in accordance with the usages of civilized warfare. This proposition is intended to be general-to embrace not merely the prisoners of war taken by armies near the Potomac, but to

others, signed a stirring appeal to the troops, which by a coincidence embodied the same sentiments as those at the same time promulgated by the commanding general. They asserted that Johnston and Beauregard still present an unbroken front to the invading foe, and declared, we still will meet the foe upon the threshold of our State with fire and sword, nerved by the unanswering and unalterable determination never to yield. To the same effect were the resolutions passed in mass-meeting by Harrison's brigade. On May 17th was published the following order of Major T. M. Harwood, commanding the cavalry battalion, Waul's Legion: Members of this command will rendezvous at Brenham, Washington county, May 28th, prepared to march immediately to brigade headquarters east of the Mississippi river. About that date General Majors addressed his brigade, exhorting them to stand by the flag. Such were the spontaneous expressions of the commanders, the army and the citizens when the first authent

My husband returned to the army in North Carolina in March, against the advice of his physicians. He was assigned to a new command from Charleston, and was surrendered with them, without his consent, at Bentonville. He did not believe the time had come to give up.

many. In August, 1861, General Stuart permitted the Clarke and Rockingham companies to decide by vote whether to go to the 6th or remain in the 1st. They elected to go into the 6th, which was officered by Colonel Charles W. Field, Lieutenant-Colonel Julian Harrison, Major J. Grattan Cabell, and John Allen, Adjutant. Shortly afterwards Colonel Field was made brigadier, and assigned to the command of an infantry brigade. Major Thomas Stanhope Flournoy was then made colonel, and, after the Valley Campaign, resigned. Cabell E. Flournoy, who had been made major, became lieutenant-colonel, and John Shack Green, major. In 1863 Julian Harrison was made colonel, but being badly wounded the day he took command, at Brandy Station, never came back again to the regiment. Cabell E. Flournoy then became colonel, Green, lieutenant-colonel, and Daniel T. Richards, major. After a while Green resigned, Richards became lieutenant-colonel, and D. A. Grimsley, major.
