Whilst veritable rosters may not be cited, the contribution of Virginia to the Confederate States Army, first and last, must have been at least 150,000. I would urge upon every true and self-respectful Virginian his palpable duty in helping, as he may, by the loan for copying, of muster rolls in his possession to Major Robert W. Hunter, Secretary of Virginia Military Records, Richmond, Va., so that as accurate a statement as may be attained, be presented, of the aid and sublime sacrifices made by our grand old Commonwealth and her devoted people to the sacred Cause of Right.—Ed.] executive Department, Richmond, Va., October 7th, 1862. Gentleman of the House of Delegates: In response to the Resolution adopted by the House of Delegates, I have the honor to transmit the accompanying report from Adjutant-General <

over that stream had given way, so that neither artillery nor wagons could cross it. General Lee was himself on the ground, and evidently considered the situation critical enough to require his personal attention. He explained his anxiety by saying that General Stuart had captured a dispatch from General Grant to General Ord, who was at Jetersville, ordering an attack early the next morning, and did not leave until he was assured that material for a new bridge was close at hand. [Major Robert W. Hunter, Secretary of Military Records for Virginia, in a communication in the Times-Dispatch of January 8, 1905, gives a more definite account of this dispatch: The dispatch referred to was taken by General Gordon's orders from a Jessie Scout, who, with the dispatch concealed in the lining of his coat, had boldly ridden to the head of Gordon's column, representing himself and companion as soldiers of General Fitz Lee's cavalry returning from furlough and wishing to be informed as to t
