Just before sundown I got up a battery (Lane's) of Cutt's battalion to open upon the Yankee column, advancing toward that pike, while Colonel Stephen Lee brought up another farther on the right. These checked the Yankee advance, and enabled Jackson to take position on Hood's left, and covering any attempt to turn us in that direction.

He could not safely make the Parkersburg diversion suggested by Garnett and Lee. Instead he asked that Garnett reinforce the Kanawha army, at the very time thatre, was assigned to the command of the Northwestern army. He was advised by General Lee that, in addition to the forces he would find at Monterey under Jackson, Briountain pass, supported by Rust's Arkansas and Baldwin's Virginia regiments; Colonel Lee's North Carolina regiment was advanced to Elk Mountain pass, supporting the Bath cavalry at Big Spring.

The opposing forces contained about twice as many Federals as Confederates. On July 1st, Garnett called for additional forces, and Lee informed him, on the 5th, that Col. W. C. Scott, with the Forty-fourth Virginia, had left on the 2d to join him, to be followed promptly by Col. Edward Johnson, with the Twelfth Georgia, and by Col. Stephen Lee, with the Sixth North Carolina. About 4 a. m. on the 11th, Rosecrans, with his brigade, which numbered 1,842 infantry and 75 cavalry, began a flank movement against Pegram, ordering reveille beaten at the usual hour by those left in camp; first marching southward, up the valley of Roaring creek, thence eastward up a hollow and along a spur of Rich mountain, southward of the ones occupied by the Confederates, to the crest of the mountain, and thence along the crest northeast to gain t

Johnston is authority for the statement that for many months previous to its surrender, General Lee's army had been fed almost entirely from North Carolina, and that at the time of his own surrender he had collected provisions enough from the same State to last for some months. Gordon's Organization of the Troops. The blockade steamer Adhe Second, Third, Fourth, Fifth, Sixth and Seventh soon followed. The first six were sent to Virginia, the Seventh to Hatteras. These regiments were under the following colonels: Solomon Williams, W. D. Pender, Junius Daniel, R. M. McKinney, Stephen Lee and W. F. Martin. However, many of them were soon reorganized.

His parents were William E. and Catherine W. Hardy, and he was reared in Newberry county on a farm, receiving his education in the common schools and at an academy taught by Col. Stephen Lee, uncle of Gen. Stephen D. Lee, near Asheville, N. C. On April 13, 1861, he entered the Confederate service as a private in Company K, Fifth South Carolina infantry, his company being known by the name of the Spartan Rifles.

General Lee, to put him, Garnett, on his guard, at once replied, July 11th: I do not think it probable that the enemy will confine himself to that portion of the northwestook to the future with the same bright anticipations I did at sixteen.
