they equalled infantry in deadly work and staying-power and were enabled to excel them in mobility and dash by means of their horses. Gettysburg, the author considers the turning point of the war, and that if Lee had there completely defeated Meade it would have ended the contest victoriously for the South. His account of the battle is good—though he errs in numbers—but the main causes to which is attributed the failure to rout the Federal army are not given sufficient prominence. That th last if Longstreet had executed Lee's orders, and attacked vigorously early in the morning of July 2. Also if Longstreet had earnestly attacked and vigorously supported, as Lee ordered, on July 3, it is clear that the blow would have demolished Meade. The author speaks in several places of divisions coming out of charges with dripping bayonets. This must be considered only a figure of speech, for it is doubtful if on a large scale bayonets ever crossed, minie bullets doing the business.

there was planned at Colonel Power's headquarters, by Captain McKowen, who commanded a company of scouts, an expedition for fearlessness and recklessness almost without a parallel. Captain McKowen knew not what fear was, and after obtaining permission from Colonel Powers, proceeded to at once carry out his project, which was to capture Major General Neal Dow, of the Federal Army, commanding a division in front of Port Hudson. It may be remembered that while Lee and Jackson were confronting Meade's Army in Virginia, a desperate effort was made by a cavalry division, under command of Colonel Ulric Dahlgren, to force its way into Richmond, with instructions to destroy and burn the hateful city, and not allow the rebel leader, Davis, and his traitorous crew to escape. Once in the city, it must be destroyed and Davis and his cabinet killed. Dahlgren was killed and his force routed, and these orders were found on his body. The Washington government then threatened to execute a number

But as it was, the encounter of the advance of the Federal army was a surprise to Lee. Hill had on the 30th of June encamped with two of his divisions,t bivouacked on the positions won. I am thus particular to locate our troops in order to show who may be responsible for any errors of the next day. Inasmuch as Meade's army was not fully up, it required no great generalship to determine that it would be to our advantage to make an attack as early in the next morning as possibleme idea of the relative strength and positions of the two armies, and of the topography of the country. Before the battle of Gettysburg opened on the 1st of July, Meade's army consisted of seven army corps which, with artillery and cavalry, numbered 105,000. Lee's army consisted of three army corps which, with artillery and caval

in the several formations referred to in the reports. That this was a matured plan, settled upon by Generals Grant and Meade, and attempted in execution in a determined manner to carry the Confederate works on Ewell's front, the following quotations from the published official records fully establish: Major-General Humphrey's, Chief of Staff to General Meade, page—of his book, says: It had been suggested by Major-General Wright, and also by myself, that, after the lapse of a few datis, and made several gallant attempts to carry the enemy's lines, but without success.
