he Potomac; and if that made the Gettysburg campaign the Illiad of the South, it must have been because of the absence of Stuart's cavalry and lack of information; but Mosby elsewhere repeatedly denies that it was the absence of the cavalry that caused the failure at Gettysburg. He goes so far as to say (on page 180): It would have been far better if the orders had been less rigid and Stuart been given discretion to operate independently of the main army. Furthermore he claims that Hill and Heth should bear the blame because they precipitated the battle by an unexpected collision with the enemy. This might have been avoided if they had been informed of the movements of the Federal army, of which they were ignorant because the cavalry was absent. There is nothing in either order to Stuart, or in General Lee's letter to General Ewell, of June 22nd, that justifies Col. Mosby's inference that Stuart was to move to Pennsylvania and join Ewell on the Susquehanna, or to justify his stat

t place at 1 A. M. on the 30th. A brigade of Heth's under Pettigrew, which had been sent forward of the place, and retired without a collision. Heth's camp fires could be seen that evening on the business was ahead. A few miles march brought Heth's skirmishers up against Buford's pickets, and , as a favorable point to make a stand. Before Heth's brigades had fully deployed, Pegram, who nevet wish to bring on a general engagement. General Heth's reply is that he was ordered after a rest unauthorized temerity, are deserved. Hill and Heth were both brave and gallant soldiers, and Hill same positions they did when the fight opened. Heth now moved Pettigrew's brigade forward to his ceopes of Oak Hill. They were none too soon, for Heth's men were well nigh exhausted, and they welcomd a column of attack to be formed of Pickett's, Heth's and part of Pender's divisions, the assault tin front and Armistead's as a support in rear. Heth's division, under Pettigrew, was formed in two [11 more...]

cast a spell over the enemy would have been instantly dispelled; and we can well imagine the piercing rebel yell that would have followed, and the onward rush of the Confederates; firing with fresh courage and enthusiasm the rest of their line, north, northwest and west of our little brigade. To think of it! Daniel's brigade of four regiments and a battery; Davis' brigade of three regiments (the fourth was absent at the time); all veteran troops and renowned fighters—and how many more of Heth's regiments south of the pike I cannot tell—opposing our brigade of three regiments, and these depleted by the absence of Company D of the 149th at Division headquarters, and Company K of the 150th in Washington, guarding the Presidential premises. Had the Rebs not been deceived as to our numbers, they would then in all probability have swept the Key Point, as Gen. Doubleday called our position; and how could our Corps commander have retrieved such a disaster, hard pressed as he was at all

ing to be relieved. Early in the afternoon of this day my division (Rodes') arrived upon the field by the Carlisle road and at once went into action. My brigade (Daniel's) was on the right, and after doing some sharp fighting we came in sight of Heth's line, which was at right angles to ours as we approached. The direction of our right regiments had to be changed in order that we might move in front of their left brigade, which was Davis': The Federal line, or lines, for my impression is theraptured the flag and were rapidly making off with it, when its owners fired upon them. All were struck down but the Sergeant, and as he was making for the house above referred to a young staff officer of my command, having carried some message to Heth's people, was returning by a short cut between the lines, and seeing a man with a strange flag, without noticing his uniform he thought he, too, would get a little glory along with some bunting. Dismounting among the dead and wounded he picked up

According to Heth's letter only his division went after shoes. Tays that he put Pender's division in to support Heth's that was in distress, and that about 2:30 in eth's story is a fable. The truth is that when Heth, early in the morning went into action, Generalon the field Heth's division was in fragments. Heth says he stumbled into the fight; he ought to ha. But the absence of cavalry was no reason for Heth's going there on a raid; it might have been a giring. He went to the rescue of A. P. Hill and Heth. General Lee had known for a week that Meaded the ignorance of the movements of Stuart that Heth, Long, and his staff-officers have attributed tted. He would never have sanctioned it. Now Heth says that if our cavalry had been there there w[18 more...]
