Photographs of distinguished Confederates are somewhat common; but accurate, standard pictures are comparatively rare. We are indebted to Mr. D. H.

The er regiments of the brigade joined in the bloody but successful attack upon Reynolds' corps. General Heth's report says, Davis, on the left, advanced driving the enemy before him and capturing his bae struggle. The good conduct of the brigade on this occasion merits my special commendation, General Heth added. General Davis also commended the service of his aides, Lieut. H. B. Estes and Captainays, that he remained for three weeks. on the battlefield of Gettysburg under an order from Gen. Harry Heth, in charge of the wounded of his division, and that the fire of Cemetery Hill having been concentrated on Heth's division, he saw no reason why North Carolinians, Mississippians, Tennesseeans, Alabamians, should not participate in whatever honors were won on that day, for, says he, all sold

It was on duty in southeast Virginia in the winter of 1862-63 and the spring of 1863; was forwarded to Lee in time to take part in the Gettysburg campaign, and formed part of the Confederate advance under Heth on the 1st day of July, 1863. There was desperate fighting in which the Confederates, at first repulsed, finally swept everything before them. In the grand charge of July 3d Gen. Joe Davis' Mississippi brigade, that fought so stoutly the first day, crossing bayonets with the Iron brigade, bore a prominent part in the work of Heth's division under Pettigrew. The Second Mississippi, of that brigade, lost half its men that day, but was still ready to fight. Its battleflag was a few years ago still in possession of its old color-bearer, who at that time lived at Blossom Prairie, Texas. This flag has the names of more than 20 battles imprinted upon it.
