round Manassas, hand-to-hand fighting actually occurred. General Grover reports that, in his charge on Jackson, bayonet wounds were given; on the right a Confederate colonel was struck in the head with a musket; in front of the deep cut, Gen. Bradley Johnson saw men standing in line and fighting with stones, and at least one man was killed with these antiquated weapons. General Hood states that after the night battle on the 28th he found the Confederates and Federals so close and so intermings of both armies gave orders for alignment, in some instances, to the troops of their opponents. In some cases, volleys were exchanged at such short range that brave men in blue and brave men in gray fell dead almost in one another's arms. General Johnson reports that he noticed a Federal flag hold its position for half an hour within ten yards of a flag of one of the regiments (Confederate) in the cut, and go down six or eight times, and that after the fight 100 dead men were lying twenty ya
s battle, General Ewell started on his campaign against General Milroy in the Shenandoah valley. General Ewell's corps embraced the divisions of Rodes, Early and Johnson. In Rodes' division were three North Carolina brigades, Iverson's, Daniel's and Ramseur's; in Early's was Hoke's brigade, commanded during this campaign (General Hoke being wounded) by Col. I. E. Avery, of the Sixth North Carolina; in Johnson's division were the First and Third regiments. General Daniel's brigade had but recently been incorporated into the army of Virginia, and was constituted as follows: Thirty-second, Colonel Brabble; Forty-third, Colonel Kenan; Forty-fifth, Lieut.-Col. on the fortifications at Winchester, Hoke's brigade was in reserve and not actively engaged. When the enemy evacuated Winchester and attacked General Steuart, of Johnson's division, who had taken position at Jordan Springs to intercept the retreat, the First and Third North Carolina regiments and the two Virginia regiments making
into action with Gordon on the right, next to Doles, Hays on his left, and Hoke's North Carolina brigade on the extreme Confederate left. Smith was in reserve. Johnson's division did not arrive in time for the afternoon battle. General Doubleday, commenting on the converging lines of A. P. Hill and Ewell, says: It would oand Capt. Joseph Graham's. They faithfully executed the duties assigned them, and were under fire and engaged as circumstances required. In the late afternoon, Johnson's division was ordered to assail Culp's hill. One of his brigades, Walker's, was detached, but his remaining three prepared for the attack. Early's and Rodes' dithe lines of the enemy these brigades and other troops remained until 12 o'clock that night, when they were ordered back to town. It had been ordered that when Johnson engaged Culp's hill in the attack just described, Early and Rodes should assault Cemetery hill. Rodes failed to get there in time, but it was through no fault of
n into the embrasures, and cleared for action. Shaw's negro regiment of 600 men advanced at a double-quick, but broke at the ditch of Wagner under the withering fire of the Charleston battalion and the Fifty-first North Carolina, and, says Major Johnson, rushed like a crowd of maniacs back to the rear. The Defense of Charleston Harbor, p. 104. Colonel Shaw was killed; and as his men, with a few brave exceptions, rushed back, they, General Seymour reported, fell harshly upon those in thewound. The North Carolina losses in these engagements were: killed, 6; wounded, 109. The most serious infantry engagement during the November movements was at Payne's farm, or Bartlett's mill, on the 27th. The Federals unexpectedly attacked Johnson's division. The main attack fell on Steuart's and Walker's brigades. Here again, as at Bristoe, the heaviest losses fell on North Carolina troops. The Third North Carolina, Lieutenant-Colonel Brown, sustained the heaviest loss in the division
le fighting there. The morning of the 19th of September found General Early's forces much divided. Rodes was at Stephenson's depot, Breckinridge and Gordon at Bunker Hill, and Ramseur at Winchester. Sheridan, now in command of the Federal Valley army, determined to take advantage of this dispersion, and bore down in full force on Ramseur, before it was fully light. Johnston's North Carolina brigade seems to have had an advanced position, and was the first to encounter Sheridan. Gen. Bradley Johnson gives this graphic picture of what followed: By daylight, the 19th of September, a scared cavalryman of my own command nearly rode over me as I lay asleep on the grass, and reported that the Yankees were advancing with a heavy force of infantry, artillery and cavalry up the Berryville road. Johnston and I were responsible for keeping Sheridan out of Winchester, and protecting the Confederate line of retreat and communication up the valley. In two minutes the command was mounted and

He took a conspicuous part with Ramseur's brigade in the battle of May 12th, for which Generals Lee and Ewell gave their thanks upon the field. After this battle he, though the junior colonel, was promoted to the command of the brigade, composed of the Second, Fourth, Fourteenth and Thirtieth regiments, to which were attached those of the First and Third regiments who escaped from the wreck of Steuart's brigade of Johnson's division. After the battle of Cold Harbor he served with Early's corps in the relief of Lynchburg, the expedition through Maryland to Washington, including the battle of Monocacy, and the Shenandoah battles of the fall of 1864. He then returned to the heroic army of Northern Virginia in the trenches before Petersburg, participated in the gallant and desperate effort of Gordon's corps to break the enemy's line at Fort Stedman, and during the retreat rounded out his reputation for good so
