The Daily Dispatch: March 19, 1864., [Electronic resource], Pennsylvania campaign--second day at Gettysburg. (search)
rps and a portion of Major Gen. Anderson's division were assaulting the enemy's left, Major Gen. Pender having ridden to the extreme right of his command to put them in the fight, should the opportunity offer, received a severe wound in the leg from the fragment of a shell. The wound, at first pronounced not dangerous, subsequently proved fatal. Words from the writer in eulogy of this brave and accomplished officer are unnecessary. Speaking of him in his preliminary report of Gettysburg, Gen. Lee says: "This lamented officer has borne a distinguished part in every engagement of this army and while leading his command with conspicuous gallantry and ability. The confidence and admiration inspired by his courage and capacity as an officer were only equalled by the esteem and respect entertained by all with whom he was associated for the noble qualities of his modest and unassuming character." Early in the morning of the 2d July, Wilcox's brigade began to take position, but findi
e case that Lincoln's amnesty was never expected or designed by himself to have any other effect than irritation and insult to the Southern people? No one, however, knows better than Abraham Lincoln that any terms he might offer the Southern people which contemplate their restoration to his bloody and brutal Government would be rejected with scorn and execration. If instead of devoting to death our President and military and civil officers he had proposed to make Jeff. Davis his successor, Lee commander-in-chief of the Yankee armies, and our domestic institutions not only recognized at home but re-adopted in the Free States, provided the South would once more enter the Yankee Union, there is not a man, woman or child in the Confederacy who would not spit upon the proposition. We desire no companionship upon any terms with a nation of robbers and murderers. The miscreants whose atrocities in this war have caused the whole civilized world to shudder, must keep henceforth their dist

At one station where an eager crowd were gazing at him he suddenly remarked: "I suppose these people are speculating as to what is on foot now." He speaks quickly, sometimes brusquely, and with the tone of one who is accustomed to command. His countenance is one indicative of more that and caste than his habitual tolerance and amiability would lead one to expect. He looks the stern soldier. The General is as unostentatious and unassuming in dress as he is in manners. He were a Colonel's cost, (three stars without the wreath) a good deal faded, blue pantaloons, high top boots, blue cloth and high felt hat, without adornment save a small cord around the crown. Thus appeared our great chieftain, our hero patriot, our Christian soldier, our beloved Robert E Lee, as a railroad traveller. Lynchburg Virginian.
