Southern Historical Society Papers, Volume 7. (ed. Reverend J. William Jones), Jackson's Valley campaign of 1862. (search)
Richmond. Banks, hearing of Ewell's arrival in the Valley, fears an attack from him and Jackson combined, and retires from Harrisonburg to New Market. Jackson's inaction for some weeks, and now his movement to West Virginia, reassures the Federal Administration, and Shields, with more than half of Banks' force, is detached at New Market, and ordered to Fredericksburg to swell McDowell's corps to over 40,000 men. McDowell says his corps at this time consisted of the divisions of McCall, King and Ord. * * * There were about 30,000 men altogether. Then General Shields came with about 11,000 men, making my force about 41,000 men. He had also 100 pieces of artillery. See McDowell's testimony before the Committee on Conduct of the War, part I, 1863, page 267. Banks is left with only some 7,000 or 8,000, and falls back to Strasburg, which he fortifies. Shields left New Market May 12th. He assumes a defensive attitude, to hold the lower Valley, and to cover the Baltimore and Ohio

gret the loss of Lieutenant-Colonel McAllister, Seventh Georgia, who behaved with great gallantry, and Captain Russel, of the same regiment, who was acting as Major. In the list of wounded were Brigadier-General Rosser, who received a painful wound in the first day's fight whilst charging the enemy at the head of his brigade, and whose absence from the field was a great loss to me; Colonel Aiken, Sixth South Carolina, who had borne himself with marked good conduct during the fight; Lieutenant-Colonel King, Cobb legion, who was wounded in a charge, and Major Anderson, Seventh Georgia. The enemy in his retreat crossed,the river at Carpenter's ford and kept down on the north bank of the stream. As he had a pontoon train with him, which enabled him to cross the river at any point, I was forced to keep on the south of the rivers so as to interpose my command between him and Grant's army, which he was seeking to rejoin. During several days, whilst we marched on parallel lines, I constan

tion of lieutenant-colonel); Captain Brandigan, Eighth Alabama, leg broken. These four were left, not being able to bear transportation. Colonel Sanders, Eleventh Alabama, and Major Fletcher, of same regiment, each received severe wounds. Captain King, Ninth Alabama (entitled to promotion of colonel), had a finger shot off. It will be seen that of five of my regimental commanders four were wounded in this first day's battle. Of my two couriers, one--Private Ridgeway, Eleventh Alabama reished but little. The regimental commanders were active and zealous in commanding and directing their men. Lieutenant-Colonel Herbert, of the Eighth; Lieutenant-Colonel Shelley, of the Tenth; Lieutenant-Colonel Tayloe, of the Eleventh, and Captain King, are all deserving of especial praise — the latter had lost a finger the day before. Captain May, Ninth Alabama, had also been wounded on the 2d, but remained with his company during the battle of the 3d. There were many acts of personal gal

an exotic in no land, or clime, or age. One the love of State--the other the love of Home. If America has made one valuable contribution to political science, to governmental method, it is embraced and formulated in that derided phrase, State sovereignty --the independence, not of the Republic, but the independence of States. These United Colonies are and of right ought to be, not a free and independent nation, but free and independent States, was the challenge of our fathers to a British King, in their Declaration of Independence, and the form in which they clothed their brave summons for room and recognition amid the sovereign states of the earth. Each State retains its sovereignty, freedom and independence, is the sentence which opens the first constitution of the United States; and the second constitution, not expressing the same thought in equivalent language, trembled long on the verge of rejection on that account, and was finally supplemented by twelve amendments, eve
