is due Lieutenant-Colonels Swearengen, of the 24th Texas Cavalry, and Nieland of the 25th, and Major Phillips, of the 6th Texas Regiment, for the prompt and gallant manner in which they led the reinforcements from their respective regiments, ordered from the right to the extreme left of our line, under the heaviest fire. The officers of my staff did effective service in their respective departments. Lieutenant Marsh, of the 6th Texas Infantry, acting Assistant Adjutant-General, and Lieutenant Hunter, of the 24th Texas Cavalry (dismounted), acting Aide de-camp, afforded me great assistance in the prompt transmission of orders to different parts of the line, under the hottest fire.

s afterwards, much to the surprised pleasure of my brigade commander, who said he feared he had seen me for the last time. Zzza long and weary March. The long and weary march to Appomattox Courthouse is familiar to many, and known of by all—and was without any special incident to the corps until the 7th of April, 1865, where, within two miles of Farmville, we fought our last fight, and, I believe, with greater desperation than at any time previously. In this engagement the Zzzgallant Catain Hunter, who had commanded the company from the Forty-first Regiment (I think) from the organization of the battalion, and who had never been hurt before, was instantly killed by a fragment of shell fired by one of our own batteries. It has been my object in this recital from memory to give only the generalities of the movements and conduct of the sharpshooters as a corps. A narration of the many instances of personal daring of individual members would almost necessitate a biographical

story. I have never witnessed a more imposing scene than the outpouring of the people as his body was borne to the grave with military ceremonial. The streets and public highways were thronged, business was suspended, and thousands came to see the last of Old Jube. A beautiful site for his grave was donated by the trustees of Spring Hill Cemetery—an elevated spot, in full view of the mountains, and but a few yards from the point where he had his headquarters on the field of battle when Hunter was defeated. The sun was sinking behind the peaks of Otter and shedding its last rays over the scene as he was lowered to rest. The artillery and the cadets of the Virginia Military Institute, the same gallant corps that had been with him upon this field thirty years before, fired a last salute, a grizzled bugler sounded taps near by the spot where Tinsley sounded the advance in 1864, and all was over. As we turned away from the new-made grave, I thought of what the Indians said when
