This was done, and by the twelfth, the whole corps had taken position in front of the enemy; my left connecting with the Twentieth corps, near the Savannah and Charleston Railroad, and my right connecting with the Seventeenth corps, beyond the canal, near Lawton's plantation. During the intervening days, between the twelfth and twenty-first, at which time the enemy evacuated his position, my troops were assiduously engaged in skirmishing with the enemy, reconnoitring his position, and making general preparations for the attack. Five (5) points in my front had, several days before the evacuation, been well reconnoitred, and pronounced accessible to an attacking party. This information was duly forwarded to the General Commanding. For further

The intention of the enemy seemed to be to attack Richmond by regular approaches. The strength of his left wing rendered a direct assault injudl Garnett commanding, being on the left; Taliaferro's parallel to the road, supporting the batteries; and Winder's own brigade, under Colonel Roland, in reserve. Lawton's brigade, having been detached by General Jackson to guard the train, was prevented from taking part in the engagement. The battle opened with a fierce fire of from a point a short distance west of the turnpike toward Sudley Mill — Jackson's division, under Brigadier-General Starke, being on the right; Ewell's, under General Lawton, in the centre; and A.

rt-House, and was followed by the other troops, Ewell's division leading. As the Federal cavalry subsequently displayed unusual activity, and, from reports received by me, was seriously endangering the train of Jackson's division, I directed General Lawton to guard it with his brigade. He was thus thrown in rear of the division, and prevented from taking part in the battle of the following day. On the ninth, as we arrived within about eight miles of Culpeper Court-House, we found the enemy point he might designate. The reply I received was, that the trains had been ordered from the road, and to move immediately by the route first designated, as it was his intention to be in Culpeper Court-House that night. Moving before daylight, Lawton's, Taliaferro's, and other brigades were overhauled just as they were in motion.
