ail here. Suffice it to say, that he discovered a movement of the enemy's infantry that neither he nor Lee had suspected. As usual, he selected Venable to carry the news to the commanding general, instructing him to ride by way of Auburn, which Lomax, with his brigade of horse, was supposed to hold. Venable sped upon his mission, and rode confidently into Auburn, only to ride out as fast as he could put spur to horse under a tempest of bullets, for Lomax had just been driven from the place aLomax had just been driven from the place and Kilpatrick's troopers held all the roads. But the trusted staff officer, with more than one touch-and-go escape, made a wide detour, knowing every foot of the country even in the darkness, and safely delivered the message to Lee. In those heroic days, compliments did not fly thick and fast, as in the great Spanish War, and to be mentioned in dispatches meant a good deal. Of this daring ride, Stuart says simply, in his official report: Major Andrew R. Venable, Jr., A. A. and Inspector-G

erson's corps, under the command of Colonel H. P. Jones. Sheridan evidently did not understand the situation, for this artillery—about one-half the artillery of Lee's army, without any infantry or cavalry with it—would have fallen an easy prey to his ambitious cavalry. After spending nearly the whole night of the 8th in marching around Sheridan, in the attempt to reunite the army, when it was light, finding that was impossible, Jones' artillery moved on to Lynchburg and reported to General L. L. Lomax, in command there, and Walker buried his guns near an old church and disbanded his command. On the 9th General Lee ordered Gordon and Fitz Lee to drive Sheridan away, that the army might resume its march, which they did very promptly, but found that Ord was there also and further efforts must be vain. The surrender of the army was then arranged for and the officers and men paroled. This ended the career of the Army of Northern Virginia, and the downfall of the Confederate Sta

held his own against Sheridan's assault most gallantly. Rodes came in and drove the enemy's front, a splendid achievement. The battle trembled in the balance, as Colonel Thomas H. Carter says, and the artillery, of which he was the chief, rolled back in disaster and dismay the assaults made upon it. The turn of the battle came about the time the Eighth Corps and Torbet's whole corps of cavalry, with the exception of Wilson's division (which had been thrown to our right and held in check by Lomax), advanced, overlapping the small commands of Fitz Lee and Breckenridge a mile in distance and seeming to cover the whole face of the earth with their massive numbers. Just at that juncture Rodes fell, while directing his division with great skill and energy, and but for this deplorable misfortune it is far from certain that the Confederates would not have prevailed. But the two things came at once, the enemy's reinforcements and the fall of Rodes. I never saw such a sight in my life as
