00 men. This is far too large. Branch says in his official report: I have at no time been able to place 4,000 men in the field at New Bern, and at the time of the battle had been seriously weakened by the re-enlistment furloughs. Many of his regiments were being reorganized from six and twelve months enlistments to enlistments for the war. On such occasions the authorities granted, freely, short furloughs for the men to put their business in order. Hence the regiments were very small. Colonel Hoke reports that he had only 614 men present. It is fair to assume that the other regiments, affected by the same cause, had about an equal number. The six regiments present, then, would number about 3,684. The militia battalion reports 264 men. The artillery and cavalry present did not, from best accounts, number over 400. This would make Branch's force aggregate about 4,348, which is nearly the figure at which he placed it, and is very nearly right. It is also difficult to get accura
Col. R. H. Cowan; the Twenty-eighth, Col. J. H. Lane; the Thirty-seventh, Col. C. C. Lee; and the Thirty-third, Lieutenant-Colonel Hoke; and also two temporarily attached regiments, the Twelfth North Carolina, Col. B. O. Wade, and Forty-fifth Georgts execution. Lee with the Thirty-seventh was to push through the woods and get close to the right flank of the battery. Hoke, as soon as he should return from a sweep through the woods on which I had sent him, and Colonel Wade, of the Twelfth, weran (Eighteenth) was to charge across the open ground in front, Latham meanwhile bringing his guns to bear on their front. Hoke, supported by Colonel Wade, had a sharp skirmish, taking 6 prisoners and 11 horses, but came out too late to make the move having sent for reinforcements, I so far changed my plan as to abandon the attack on the enemy's left, and sent Lieutenant-Colonel Hoke to reinforce Colonel Lee, relying on the front and right attack. Colonel Cowan, with the Eighteenth, made the c
the blow in which all were expected to participate. On opening the battle, General Longstreet sent Branch's--North Carolina brigade of A. P. Hill's division to his right, to keep Hooker from falling on his flank. General Branch said of the action of his men: On Monday, at Frayser's Farm, you were again in the heat of the engagement from its opening to its close, driving the enemy before you for a great distance, and capturing a battery. Congratulatory address to his soldiers. Lieut.-Col. R. F. Hoke, of the Thirty-third North Carolina, reported: You then halted, formed line of battle, and charged, by the doublequick and with a yell, the enemy's batteries, which were strongly supported by infantry across this field, a distance of 500 yards. We, at the same time, were enfiladed by grapeshot; neither fire upon the flank or front at all stopped the men, but on they pressed, and soon silenced the fire. In this charge, Col. C. C. Lee was killed and Colonel Lane wounded. The rest of

MacRae; the Eighteenth, Lieutenant-Colonel Purdie; the Twenty-eighth, Col. J. H. Lane; the Thirty-third, Lieut.-Col. R. F. Hoke, and the Thirty-seventh, Lieut.-Col. W. M. Barbour; in Pender's brigade, the Sixteenth, Capt. L. W. Stowe; the Twenty-second, Maj. C. C. Cole; the Thirty-fourth, Col. R. H. Riddick, and the Thirty-eighth, Captain McLaughlin; Latham's battages far. When Branch advanced, part of the Seventh regiment under Capt. McLeod Turner was deployed as skirmishers around Crenshaw's battery. The Thirty-seventh regiment first became engaged. The Eighteenth and Seventh marched to its aid. Col. R. F. Hoke, with the Thirty-third, was further to the left, and gallantly advanced into the open field and drove the enemy from his front. The Twenty-eighth, under Colonel Lane, fought determinedly in conjunction with Field's left. Finally this briga
ntil their ammunition was exhausted and were then quietly and steadily retired from the field. Archer's left regiments were broken, and the enemy pushed gallantly on to the second line. Three brigades of Early's division were called to the front, and these uniting their efforts to those of the other troops, Meade's men were driven back with great loss. Only one of Early's three brigades contained any North Carolina troops. That was Trimble's brigade, commanded by a North Carolina colonel, R. F. Hoke. In this brigade were the Twenty-first North Carolina and the First battalion. General Early says of the charge of this brigade: I ordered Hoke to advance to his [Archer's] support. This was done in gallant style, and Hoke found the enemy in possession of the trench (which had been occupied by General Archer's brigade). . . . Hoke attacked the enemy vigorously and drove them from the woods and trench to the railroad in front, in which there were reserves. He followed up his attack
ricksburg, he ordered McLaws to move toward Anderson's position at midnight on the 30th, and Jackson to move at dawn. General Jackson reached Anderson's hasty works at 8 o'clock, and at once prepared to advance the whole Confederate force. Gen. R. F. Hoke's North Carolina brigade of four regiments and one battalion remained with Early. With Jackson there moved four North Carolina brigades and two regiments. Two of these brigades, Lane's and Pender's, were in A. P. Hill's division, commandedlina heroism as is borne by these simple figures. Among the killed were the following officers from North Carolina: Cols. J. T. Purdie, J. C. S. McDowell; Lieut.-Cols. C. C. Cole, J. L. Hill, and Maj. L. Odell. In the list of wounded were Gens. R. F. Hoke, S. D. Ramseur; Cols. T. M. Garrett, T. F. Toon, W. R. Cox, A. M. Scales, W. M. Barbour, C. M. Avery, E. G. Haywood; Lieut.-Cols. J. W. Lea, R. V. Cowan, W. H. A. Speer, Forney George, J. B. Ashcraft; Majs. M. McR. McLauchlin, W. G. Morris,
hrough the ranks of the infantry. In the operations around Rappahannock Station, Hays' brigade occupied a tete-de-pont on the enemy's side of the Rappahannock. Hoke's brigade, now commanded during General Hoke's absence, from a severe wound, by Col. A. C. Godwin, was ordered to cross the river to reinforce Hays. There, on theGeneral Hoke's absence, from a severe wound, by Col. A. C. Godwin, was ordered to cross the river to reinforce Hays. There, on the 7th of November, these two brigades were completely surrounded by the Federal First and Second corps, and a large part of them forced to surrender in spite of the efforts of Hays and of Godwin, a splendid officer, to extricate them. General Early thus speaks of this unfortunate affair: Hoke's brigade had not at this time been caHoke's brigade had not at this time been captured, but they were hopelessly cut off from the bridge without any means of escape and with no chance of being reinforced; and while making preparations to defend the bridge and prevent an increase of the disaster, I had the mortification to hear the final struggle of these devoted men, and to be made painfully aware of their c
istory: This was a most exciting little affair, in which our troops met negro soldiers for the first time. Quick work was made of their line of battle, and their retreat was soon converted into a runaway.... The firing of our artillery was excellent, every shot taking effect upon the fleeing ebony horsemen. At a swift run by sections, Branch's artillery kept shot and shell in their midst as long as the fleeing cavalry could be reached. The next important event in North Carolina was Gen. R. F. Hoke's capture of the town of Plymouth. This town had been very strongly fortified, especially on the land side. Forts Williams, Gray, Amory, Battery Worth and other defenses made an attack quite a formidable matter. It was held by Gen. H. W. Wessells, commanding a garrison of 2,834 men. General Hoke, who had been selected to lead this important expedition because the President knew his energy and activity, designed attacking Plymouth, and wished naval assistance. He rode up the river to
th side of the Confederate capital. Of the four division commanders under Beauregard, three of them, Gens. Robert Ransom, Hoke and Whiting, were citizens of North Carolina. The following North Carolina troops were part of that organization: Hoke's Hoke's old brigade under Col. W. G. Lewis, made up of these regiments—Sixth, Colonel Webb; Twenty-first, Lieutenant-Colonel Rankin; Fifty-fourth, Colonel Murchison; Fifty-seventh, Colonel Godwin; First North Carolina battalion, Colonel Wharton; Clingman's bLee and take Richmond. When Butler's initiatory movements began, there were few Confederate troops in his front. But General Hoke's division was hurried there, thus stopping his brilliant campaign in North Carolina. General Whiting's force was move anticipate the pending campaign by the capture of some of the towns held by the enemy in eastern North Carolina. Brig.-Gen. R. F. Hoke was selected to command the expedition. He took with him his own, Ransom's, Terry's Virginia brigade, the Forty-
ettysburg campaign his regiment was attached to Hoke's brigade, Early's division, Ewell's corps. Hesin and almost instantly killed. Major-General Robert F. Hoke Major-General Robert F. Hoke wasMajor-General Robert F. Hoke was born at Lincolnton, N. C., May 27, 1837, and was educated at the Kentucky military institute. He ehe return of Colonel Avery to his regiment, Colonel Hoke was assigned to the command of the Twenty-fwrote to President Davis: I am very glad of General Hoke's promotion, though sorry to lose him, unley being up, the attacks were renewed, mainly on Hoke's division, but were repulsed on every occasion in command of this division, but it was really Hoke's division, and Hoke directed the fighting.
