ever, the Confederate commander-in-chief, General Johnston, after an examination of the works and ofttle. They seem to think that it was part of Johnston's purpose to hold permanently the Fort Magrude of affairs. As Colonel Maury observes: General Johnston had no intention of tarrying at Williamsbin the vain hope of getting in our rear. General Johnston says: It was an affair with our rear t of which was to secure our baggage trains. Johnston's Narrative. General Webb, of the Federals, oys Lossing, was the first intimation that Johnston had of their existence, and he at once percei this reconnoissance, General Early, says General Johnston, sent an officer to report that theredesired the general to look carefully first. Johnston's Narrative, 122. General Hill's report is virts for the purpose of getting in the rear of Johnston's retreating army. The purpose, however, wass Colonel Christie, gallantly led by Lieut.-Col. R. D. Johnston across the Williamsburg road, and, c
econcerted battle-signal, and obeying his orders, moved his five brigades into action. This division contained eleven North Carolina regiments, but on the day of this battle the Fourth and Fifth were absent on detail duty. In Garland's brigade were the Twelfth, Colonel Wade; the Thirteenth, Colonel Scales; the Twentieth, Maj. W. H. Toon; the Twenty-third, Lieut. I. J. Young. In Anderson's brigade, commanded at Malvern Hill by Colonel Tew, were the Second, Colonel Tew; the Fourteenth, Colonel Johnston; the Thirtieth, Colonel Parker. In Ripley's were the First and Third North Carolina, the First under Lieut.-Col. W. P. Bynum, of the Second, and the Third under Colonel Meares. As Hill's men moved in, Magruder also ordered an advance of his troops, but they were delayed and did not get into close action until Hill's division had been hurled back. The Comte de Paris, who was on General McClellan's staff and had excellent opportunities for seeing all that was going on, gives this accou
hould first drive the vandals from their works. His losses, 739 killed and wounded, show hard struggling. Iverson's brigade went into action on the left of the Confederate line and to the left of the plank road; Rodes' brigade was on Iverson's right. Both of these were supporting brigades and in the third line. The Fifth regiment, the left regiment, became entangled in the dense undergrowth and had to be moved to the right to get forward. This left the Twelfth on the flank. Lieut.-Col. R. D. Johnston, of the Twenty-third, was that day in command of the Twelfth and he deployed skirmishers on the flank and the brigade moved on the enemy. Iverson reached the front line as it was falling back from its assault on the third Federal position. General Doubleday, of the Union army, says: Then another front attack was organized by the enemy, and Nicholls', Iverson's and O'Neal's brigades charged over everything, even up to Best's batteries at Fairview. Chancellorsville, Gettysburg
L. Andrews, whose splendid leadership had encouraged the Second battalion to fight so grimly and lose so terribly; Lieut.-Col. M. T. Smith, the Ghristian soldier whose quiet example of conscientious discharge of duty left a lasting impression on the Fifty-fifth regiment; Maj. E. A. Ross, a hard fighter and earnest friend. Among the wounded field officers were Cols. J. K. Connally, C. Leventhorpe, T. S. Kenan, S. D. Lowe, F. M. Parker, R. T. Bennett; Lieut.-Cols. J. R. Lane, S. H. Boyd, R. D. Johnston, M. A. Parks, and W. J. Green, acting aide to General Pettigrew; Majs. A. H. Belo, J. R. Winston, J. M. Hancock, H. G. Lewis, D. W. Hurtt, C. C. Blacknall; Adjts. T. C. James and J. B. Jordan, and perhaps others equally brave whom the records do not mention. Several of these officers, like the gallant colonel of the Forty-third, T. S. Kenan, had not only the ill fortune to be wounded, but had added to it the misfortune of spending the rest of the time covered by the war in a Federal pr
s march. General Ewell's corps, moving on the turnpike, was diminished by the absence of Gen. R. D. Johnston's North Carolina brigade, then stationed at Hanover Court House, and by Hoke's North Caroacked Upton on one flank. Gordon hurried forward Battle's Alabamians to strike him in front R. D. Johnston's North Carolinians joined Daniel on the flank, and Steuart's North Carolinians and Virginiat the approaching night in order that they might retire in safety. The conduct of one of Gen. R. D. Johnston's regiments drew from General Lee the following letter: Headquarters Army of Norttieth North Carolina regiment, under Colonel [T. F.] Toon, of the brigade commanded by Brig.-Gen. R. D. Johnston, captured his flag. It was brought to me by Maj. John S. Brooks, of that regiment, whs to attack them on three sides. The first fresh troops that they encountered in front were R. D. Johnston's North Carolinians of Gordon's division. The impact was too strong for Johnston. That gal
rps, was directed to take his command and move to the valley of Virginia, to meet Hunter. The North Carolina troops that followed Early up and down the valley, and shared in all the hardships of a campaign that had its full share of successes and reverses, were as follows: The Thirty-second, Fifty-third, Forty-third, Forty-fifth regiments and Second battalion, of Gen. Bryan Grimes' brigade; the First, Second, Third, Fourth, Fourteenth and Twenty-third regiments and First battalion,of Gen. R. D. Johnston's brigade; the Sixth, Twenty-first, Fifty-fourth, and Fifty-seventh regiments, of Gen. A. C. Godwin's brigade (General Lewis', commanded, after his wounding, by Godwin). Gen. Robert Ransom was sent to command the cavalry in the valley. The Sixtieth North Carolina cavalry was in Wharton's command. Early's corps was engaged in skirmishes at Lynchburg and Martinsburg, demonstrated against Harper's Ferry, and on the 9th of June fought the battle of Monocacy. At Monocacy the Federals
econd, Capt. P. C. Shurord; the Forty-third, Capt. W. J. Cobb; the Forty-fifth, Col. J. R. Winston; the Fifty-third, Capt. T. E. Ashcraft, and the Second North Carolina battalion, all of Grimes' old brigade, commanded by Col. D. G. Cowand. In other divisions—Walker's, Heth's, Wilcox's and Johnson's—were the Fifth, Col. J. W. Lea; the Twelfth, Capt. Plato Durham; the Twentieth, Lieut. A. F. Lawhon; the Twenty-third, Capt. A. D. Peace; the First battalion, Lieut. R. W. Woodruff; all of Gen. R. D.

He entered the Confederaenty-third North Carolina was brought off by the gallant Lieutenant-Colonel Johnston and put in position in the sunken road, and he especially commended Johnston among the officers distinguished on that bloody field. At Chancellorsville, when Major Rowe, leading the Twelfth North Carolina, was killed, LieutenantCol-onel Johnston took command of that regiment. This regiment and the Twenty-third were both in Rodes' gallarilliant flank attack. In this battle the North Carolinians under Johnston captured a stand of the enemy's colors.
