de sent back. Fight at Bristow Station. On our march to this place we guarded the wagon train and a part of the artillery of A. P. Hill's corps. At Bristow we formed line of battle on the left of the road, in an old open field, and were under fire, but were not ordered forward. After the enemy retired we assisted in tearing up and destroying the railroad track to the Rappahanock river, and then went into camp near Brandy Station.

But the following from our gallant friend, Major Parker, seems to show that the honor really belonged to Johnson's Battery of Richmond: * * * * * * The last artillery shot was not fired by a battery stationed in the yard of Mr. Peers, but by a Richmond battery known as Johnson's battery, and once commanded by the late Major
