Southern Historical Society Papers, Volume 1. (ed. Reverend J. William Jones), Seacoast defences of South Carolina and Georgia. (search)
Seacoast defences of South Carolina and Georgia. By General A. L. Long, Chief of Artillery. The seacoast defences occupied the attention of the Confederate Government as soon as it became apparent that the war was inevitable. The line of coast extending from the entrance of the Chesapeake bay to the mouth of the Rio Grande presented innumerable bays, inlets and harbors, into which vessels could run either for predatory excursions or with the intention of actual invasion. The Federals having the command of the sea, it was certain that they would take advantage of this open condition of the coast to employ their naval force as soon as it could be collected, not only to enforce the blockade which had been declared, but also for making inroads along our unprotected coast. That the system of defence adopted may be understood, I will describe a little in detail the topography of the coast. On the coast of North Carolina are Albemarle and Pamlico sounds, penetrating trating far int

* * * * * June 17th Rhodes' division passed through towards Lynchburg on foot, several regiments of Gordon's and Ramseur's divisions rode on the cars. Lieutenant Long and I got a transfer to private quarters, and drew our rations from the commissary. This is the first time I have ever been sick enough to be sent to a hospiand obtain a transfer to general hospital at Lynchburg. At two o'clock took the cars, reached Lynchburg near sun down, and was sent to College hospital, with Lieutenant Long and Lieutenant B. F. Howard of Tuskegee, Alabama. It is partly under charge of some Sisters of Charity. Here I heard of the sudden death of Mr. Charles Wrigtherwise, I remained in my room until evening trying to sleep, and thus atone for the night's restlessness. Late in the day I applied, with Lieutenants Howard and Long and several other officers, for discharge from the hospital. The application was granted, though my immediate surgeon told me I ought not to leave for several day

D. D., Secretary Southern Historical Society: Dear Sir--General Long's sketch in the February number of the Southern Histommunication between the Mississippi and the Potomac. General Long omits from consideration the particularly great value old have been accomplished by an incalculable force. General Long, as he says, was on the staff of General Lee during thet defence I do not propose to relate, but I must assure General Long and his readers, of what can be readily substantiated, mmand, instead of being that impenetrable barrier which General Long supposes — opposed to the mighty naval forces of Dupontnah. And so comprehensive were these changes, that had General Long chanced to visit those two places and the intermediate ndeed of the whole defensive system around Savannah. General Long observes that the Coosawhatchie was the centre of the douth Carolina and Georgia as is given by the article of General Long, I doubt not unconscious of the injustice thus done to

Lee's West Virginia campaign. General A. L. Long. Before proceeding with the operations in Northwestern Virginia, it will be necessary to glance at the condition of that section, and the previous military operations that had been carried on within its limits. This section of Virginia did not cordially coincide in the ordina His appointment, therefore, gave general satisfaction. His staff was composed chiefly of experienced officers-Colonel Carter Stevenson, Adjutant General; Major A. L. Long, Chief of Artillery; Captain Corley, Chief Quartermaster; Captain Cole, Chief Commissary; Lieutenant Matthews, Aide-de-camp, and Colonel Starks, volunteer Ai Quartermaster and Commissary, being experienced officers, rendered valuable service in organizing the troops and in collecting transportation and supplies. Major A. L. Long, in addition to his duties as Chief of Artillery, had assigned him those of Inspector General. The troops were well armed and equipped, all of them were acc

after the receipt of the telegram just mentioned from General Sherman. General E. M. McCook, with a detachment of seven hundred men, was directed to proceed by rail to. Albany, Georgia, and march thence by the most direct route to Tallahassee, Florida, while General Croxton, with the remainder of this division, was held at Macon, with orders issued subsequently to watch the line of the Ocmulgee river from the mouth of Yellow creek to Macon. General Minty, commanding the Second Division--general Long having been wounded at Selma — was directed, about the same time, to send detachments to Cuthbert and Eufaula, and to watch the line of the Ocmulgee, from the right of the First Division to Abbeville, and as much of the Flint and Chattahoochee, to the rear, as practicable. The ostensible object of this disposition of troops was to secure prisoners and military stores, and to take possession of the important strategic points and lines of communication; but the different commanders were di

Chapter 37: pursuit of Hunter. On the 12th of June, while the 2nd corps (Ewell's) of the Army of Northern Virginia was lying near Gaines' Mill, in rear of Hill's line at Cold Harbor, I received verbal orders from General Lee to hold the corps, with two of the battalions of artillery attached to it, in readiness to move to the Shenandoah Valley. Nelson's and Braxton's battalions were selected, and Brigadier General Long was ordered to accompany me as Chief of Artillery. After dark, on the same day, written instructions were given me by General Lee, by which I was directed to move, with the force designated, at 3 o'clock next morning, for the Valley, by the way of Louisa CourtHouse and Charlottesville, and through Brown's or Swift Run Gap in the Blue Ridge, as I might find most advisable; to strike Hunter's force in the rear, and, if possible, destroy it; then to move down the Valley, cross the Potomac near Leesburg in Loudoun County, or at or above Harper's Ferry, as I might fin

maining officers and men of the other battalions were sent, under the charge of Colonel Carter, to General Lee, to man stationary batteries on his lines. Brigadier General Long, who had been absent on sick leave for some time and had returned, remained with me, and most of the guns which were without horses were sent to Lynchburgf as prisoners, and a force of the enemy moving rapidly towards Rock-fish Gap. I then rode with the greater part of my staff and 15 or 20 others, including General Long, across the mountain, north of the Gap, with the hope of arriving at Greenwood depot, to which the stores had been removed, before the enemy reached that place, and he was ordered to Lynchburg, by the way of the Central and Southside Railroads, to take command of Echols' brigade, and aid in the defence of the city. General Long was ordered to report to General Lee at Petersburg. The affair at Waynesboro diverted Sheridan from Lynchburg, which he could have captured without difficu

mentions a route by which the left of the enemy could be turned. Letters from the active members of General Lee's staff and from his military secretary, General A. L. Long, show that the sunrise battle was not ordered, and a letter from Colonel Fairfax shows that the claim that it was so ordered was set up after General Lee's order to attack at sunrise, or at any other designated hour, pending the operations at Gettysburg during the first three days of July, 1863... Yours truly, A. L. Long. Freestone P. O., Prince William County, Va., November 12, 1877. My Dear General Longstreet, . . . The winter after the death of General Lee I was in Lexined to report to you; found you with hat in hand cheering on General McLaws's division .... Truly your friend, John W. Fairfax.
