C., when Foster made his raid from New Bern. Next he went with the Twenty-third to Wilmington and from there to Mississippi, when Gen. Joseph Johnston was trying to concentrate a force for the relief of Vicksburg. He was in the skirmishes under Jackson, was then sent to Isle of Hope, near Savannah, Ga., and soon after was stationed at Mount Pleasant, near Charleston. He was appointed brigade quartermaster November 13, 1863, with rank of major, his commission being signed by James A. Siddon, secretary of war. He was assigned in this capacity to the brigade of Gen.

of his army? Did he not suggest to the government a true military avoidance of such a catastrophe by pursuing with the Army of Northern Virginia the same general strategy that General Johnston adopted with the Army of the Tennessee? I put the plain question to Vice-President Stephens, while he was defending Petersburg in view of Johnston's retreat before Sherman, namely: Who of our generals is the greatest in your eyes? The reply came promptly: I am decidedly of the opinion that General Joseph Johnston has the clearest understanding of any of the military policy necessary to final success. In this I prefer him. I have always regretted that opinion of Mr. Stephens, because I have never been content to believe that the defence of Petersburg was the generalship of Lee as a feature of his strategy. When we come to institute parallels between the generals of our armies—one in Virginia and the other in the more Southern States—we encounter the resistance of President Davis or his g
