ces did Bragg fight at Chickamauga. He had received large reinforcements from Virginia, consisting of two divisions of Longstreet scorps, and also other accessions from different portions of the country. His whole force was about seventy-five thousentrenchment, and after his enemy had made the great accessions to his forces above referred to, General Bragg detached Longstreet's corps and hurried it off to besiege Knoxville. Even the day before the battle, our command was withdrawn from our pon Cleburne's command) and we lay some time, irresolutely at the depot, waiting, as we supposed, to be sent to reinforce Longstreet. Thus, by his own act, our commander seemed to make his position untenable. Had it been held by sufficient numbersf the leaders and the various causes of discontent among the men, the army grew rapidly demoralized. The withdrawal of Longstreet to East Tennessee, together with the sickness which existed, had thinned the ranks greatly, so that at the time of the

him later in the day, when he was having a rough time. My Colonel was absent on official business that day, and I was trying to make myself useful. I took a hand in anything that 1 could; carried orders for General R. E. Lee; was sent to General Longstreet, then to Colonel Manning, who was forming a skirmish line (to the south of General Lee's headquarters). Colonel Manning put me in charge of the right (he being in centre), and we had a lively time for some hours. That was a grand skirmish devotion to duty and love for his troops which made the General on that fatal morning utterly reckless of his own life. General Hill reached General Lee's headquarters before light and reported personally to the General in his own room. General Longstreet had arrived from the north side of the Appomattox about one o'clock the same morning and was lying on the floor of the Adjutant's office trying to get a little sleep. A few minutes after General Hill's arrival I walked out to the front ga

General Bragg was in consultation with General Longstreet at early dawn of the morning of the 21st at the latter's bivouac. General Longstreet urged a movement across the river in the rear of Rosecew. On parting from General Bragg General Longstreet directed his command to move at once. When to the operations of that other division of Longstreet's corps, which did such noble service on theBreckinridge and our bull-dog leader, General James Longstreet, Lee's famous war-horse. Tom Wallingany, called me, and we walked to where they (Longstreet and Breckinridge) were. I think General Buc, on horseback. General Bragg was on foot. Longstreet and Bragg were in earnest conversation—the l saying; he spoke slowly, and in low tones. Longstreet said: General, this army should have been in from Bragg was followed by these words from Longstreet: Yes, sir, you rank me, but you cannot cashiso important a portion of Bragg's command as Longstreet's corps.

e was the destination of General Burnside, I should have recommended that General Longstreet should be sent to oppose him, instead of to Atlanta. If General Bragg o bring General Rosecrans to battle, I think it would be better to return General Longstreet to this army to enable me to oppose the advance of General Meade with a g prospect of success. And it is a matter worthy of consideration whether General Longstreet's corps will reach General Bragg in time and condition to be of any advanch, you may recollect, he reported as exceeding his expectations. Should General Longstreet reach General Bragg in time to aid him in winning a victory, and return he guns of three battalions of artillery have been called for, to go with General Longstreet, and have been forwarded to Richmond with that object. I think before thnformed that the New York Herald of the 9th instant contained the movement of Longstreet's corps in the order in which his divisions moved, and even contains the ann

couriers: say that I trust I may see and thank them in person. Early on the morning of the 6th, Grant, who had massed a heavy force in the immediate front of Davis's Mississippi brigade, opened fire and began a forward movement on our lines at this point. Seeing we were unable to check their advance, Colonel Stone (since Governor of Mississippi), commanding Davis's brigade, sent word to General Heth, division commander, that he must be reinforced, which brought to our aid a division of Longstreet's corps, led in person by that able Lieutenant-General. It was at this critical crisis that General Lee appeared upon the scene. After the enemy had been repulsed on the right, and while our chieftain was awaiting, in painful anxiety, information from our left wing, a courier—a mere youth—came dashing up with a message from Lieutenant-General R. H. Anderson, his small pony panting like a deer that had been pursued by a pack of trained hounds. Delivering his sealed message to General Le

seventy-five killed and wounded nearly all of whom were from Trigg's brigade. During the night Gracie's and Kelley's brigades were vigorously engaged in constructing defences to strengthen the left, and in the morning Williams's and Leyden's battalions of artillery were supported by my infantry, under cover of good field entrenchments. On Sunday, about midday, the battle became fierce along the right towards Chattanooga, and there was a general advance of the left wing under Lieutenant-General Longstreet. Stewart's division and Trigg's brigade were moved forward northwestwardly, in the direction of Brotherton's house, on the Chattanooga road. Under an order from Major-General Buckner, I advanced with Gracie's and Kelly's brigades, with the exception of the Sixty-fifth Georgia, Colonel Moore, which was left to protect Jeffries's battery, near Hunt's field, on the left. Gracie's and Kelley's brigades were formed in line of battle across the Chattanooga road in front of Brotherto
