Pender, were principally engaged. On the next day, Thursday, Gens. Ewell and Longstreet engaged the enemy on the right and left, the line of battle extending two miles and a half on each wing.

On Friday skirmishing was commenced between 1 and 2 o'clock in the day — Hill a corps and Heth's division being principally engaged. They reached the entrenchments, as did also the division of Gen. Pickett. After the enemy's works were carried, there was heavy fighting within the entrenchments; but the overpowering masses

Every variety of military accoutrements, every species of arms, dilapidated artillery, wagons abandoned and worthless ammunition, as well as dead horsesying in every conceivable position, and emitting a perfume anything but agreeable. All this, too, after the enemy themselves had been in possession of the premises for two days after the battle. Upon the site of what is known as the Cemetery Hill battle, where the first and second corps fought so gallantly, the eleventh not doing so well, besides other evidences of the fearful conflict which had there been raging, we counted eighty one horses lying dead, from the effect of the shot and she
