How it was lost, and where, are not definitely known. General Hill states that he never received this copy of the order, and consequentlydered Longstreet back to Boonesboroa to support Hill. General Longstreet says that he urged Lee notto make a stand at Boonesboroa, but to bring D. H. Hill back to Sharpsburg. General Longstreet leavuntain, about which much might be said. General D. H.

it is without attempting to point out where I think Colonel Chesney was mistaken. But this charge of want of discipline has been made by others who have had no such kindly feeling to us, nor desire to do us justice. Somewhat of this sting, too, is increased by the fact that our critics can quote General Lee himself as authority for the charge. My army is ruined by straggling, General Lee said to a distinguished officer at Sharpsburg. And in the last address before this Association General D. H. Hill makes the same admission. That the Army of Northern Virginia was depleted by straggling in the Maryland campaign no one can deny. But I, as a line officer, do deny that the cause of this straggling was, in the main, the want of discipline. The difficulty, I believe, was simply that of the limit of human endurance. The day after we captured the stores at the Second Manassas, 1 was ordered to send all the barefooted men in the First South Carolina volunteers to the junction to get

f May, reaching Williamsburg on the evening of the 4th. On the 5th, was engaged in the battle near Williamsburg, with very unfavorable circumstances, the mud being very deep, and the command double quicked for a long distance, and through underbrush, briers, &c. Continued to retire towards Richmond, subsisting at times on parched corn, and went into camp near the city on the 18th. On the 24th, the regiment was transferred to brigade of General S. Garland, to the pleasure of all, and General D. H. Hill's division. Ordered on picket duty on Williamsburg road on 27th, and continued on duty up to the 31st, when it acted in the opening of the battle of Seven Pines, where it lost some good officers and privates. Captain Griggs captured the flag of the One hundred-and-fourth regiment of Pennsylvania volunteers; and though the enemy were strongly posted, and it was necessary to wade through swamps, brush, &c., they were driven from their position with considerable loss.

sas until the place was evacuated in March, 1862, and while there, was, on several occasions earnestly recommended for promotion by his commanding officers, Generals D. H. Hill and Joseph E. Johnston, but this expected and well-merited distinction was not conferred on him, but was withheld until it was forced from the government byeneral Anderson's brigade was not engaged in any serious fight previous to the actual invasion of Maryland. At the battle of South Mountain, however, where General D. H. Hill's division was left by General Lee to oppose the passage of General McClellan's army until Jackson could capture Harper's Ferry and come to Lee's assistancrg or Antietam—this great battle as General Lee called it in his report—occurred on the 17th day of September, three days after the fight at South Mountain, and D. H. Hill's division, with Anderson's brigade on its right, wearied and worn out by continuous marching and fighting, took position in the centre of the line on the left

al Polk, and General Polk, I believe, claimed that the fault was partly General Bragg's in failing to give proper orders, and partly due to the tardiness of General D. H. Hill, who, after making a late start from bivouac, waited to ration his men. Whoever was at fault, it was a grievous error, and one that cost many a man's life, troops were being rearranged and put in shape for another general assault, and, while staff officers were sent hither and thither with orders, Generals Polk and D. H. Hill held a consultation. This consultation lasted some time, and of the fact that it was not harmonious the writer happened to be a witness, in this way: Having be as to receiving my report. The General saw me waiting, and very soon he rose from the log on which they sat, and, as he turned towards me, I heard him say to General Hill, with considerable warmth of manner, Well, sir, I am sorry that you do not agree with me, but my decision is made, and that is the way it shall be done, or wor

straight road within a space of twelve miles. Who could foretell the result of this mighty, but unfinished contest? Who could estimate its vast complications? Stonewall Jackson was wounded, and lay languishing upon his litter; Longstreet and D. H. Hill were absent. Robert E. Lee alone, of all the master spirits of the struggling hosts, could comprehend the situation, and by his mastery over that situation successfully worked out the result, and illustrated his vast superiority over all the g of Fredericksburg, a joint, active, closing — in movement would have been made upon Lee, and Lee would have been crushed upon the plank road, and that would have looked like pulverizing the rebellion. But Sedgwick was not the real Beauregard, or Hill, or Hood; Hooker was not the real Johnston or Longstreet. Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson knew their men. They knew the vain and boastful Hooker, and the courteous and cautious, if not timid, Sedgwick, and upon that knowledge they ventured up

of Richmond, as I was going out and he going in the executive office, I said to him, General, I wish you would give us your opinion as to the propriety of changing the seat of government, and going further South. That is a political question, Mr. Hill, and you politicians must determine it. I shall endeavor to take care of the army and you must make the laws and control the Government. Ah, General, I said, but you will have to change that rule, and form and express political opinions; for,reater, is here. Lee sometimes indulged in satire, to which his greatness gave point and power. He was especially severe on newspaper criticisms of military movements—subjects about which the writers knew nothing. We made a great mistake, Mr. Hill, in the beginning of our struggle, and I fear, in spite of all we can do, it will prove to be a fatal mistake, he said to me, after General Bragg ceased to command the Army of Tennessee, an event Lee deplored. What mistake is that, General?

One company, eighty-four strong, made the unprecedented report that every man and officer in it was hit, and the orderly sergeant who made out the list did it with a bullet through each leg The regiment commanded by General George B. Anderson (then Colonel) the Fourth North Carolina, at the battle of Seven Pines lost four hundred and sixty-two men, killed and wounded, out of five hundred and twenty, and twenty-four out of twenty-seven officers. Of the four divisions—D. H. Hill's, A. P. Hill's, Longstreet's and Jackson's—which assailed and put to rout McClellan's right on the Chickahominy, there were ninety-two regiments, of which forty-six regiments were North Carolinians. This statement I make upon the authority of one of the division commanders. At the dedication of the Confederate cemetery in Winchester, Virginia, some years ago, I was invited to deliver the oration, and the reason assigned by the committee for soliciting me for this task was that the No
