I cannot now be the historian of their deeds, and of the prominent part they, too, bore in the great battle of the 30th; but let me give you some more figures, which will show that however justly proud you and I, my comrades, are of our own part, we can claim no monopoly of South Carolina's glory at Manassas. General Lee's army, on that occasion, was composed of one hu

About the middle of September, General Sherman being still at Atlanta, endeavored to open private communication with Governor
