Southern Historical Society Papers, Volume 7. (ed. Reverend J. William Jones), Jackson's Valley campaign of 1862. (search)
ard Johnson, the latter of whom was seven miles west of Staunton, at West View, with a brigade. Jackson at once decided upon his plan of campaign, and the very next day began to put it in execution. This campaign, so( successful and brilliant in its results, and now so renowned, shows in its conception the strong points of Jackson's military genius — his clear, vigorous grasp of the situation — his decision, his energy, his grand audacity. It recalls the Italian campaign of 1796, when Napoleon astonished, baffled, defeated the armies of Beaulieu, Wurmser and Alvinzy in succession. Jackson was now with about 6,000 men at the base of the Blue Ridge, some thirty miles northeast of Staunton. Ewell with an equal force was in the vicinity of Gordonsville, twenty-five miles in his rear, and east of the mountains. Edward Johnson was seven miles west of Staunton with 3,500 men,--such the Confederate position. On the other hand, Banks, with the main body of his force of about 20,000

its fullest extent, I directed the troops to be withdrawn to the line held by Elliott's brigade, which was accomplished, under the circumstances, with remarkable coolness and with little loss. The fighting was severe during the entire morning, and men, as well as officers, displayed signal gallantry. Our loss was heavy, including some of our best officers. The light pieces used by me here consisted of two twelve-pound howitzers, of Le Garden's New Orleans battery, and one twelve-pound Napoleon, of Stewart's South Carolina artillery, which were admirably served, and which operated with decided result upon the enemy's infantry and opposing battery. The ground was so soft from the heavy rains that it was with difficulty the pieces could be manoeuvred, while the concentrated fire upon them was terrible — nearly every cannoneer of both sections being killed or wounded, while nine of Le Garden's and every horse of Stewart's, except one, were killed. Spare horses had been ordered from

ty-fourth Virginia, that the Sixth South Carolina was also used up. There is no doubt the brigade of General Hancock was in our hands. Besides the two regiments of Early's brigade, which were not called on to do any work, and Calonel Bratton's regiment, in immediate presence of the disaster, General Hill had two brigades — Rodes' and Rains'--in easy reach, and Hancock was out of reach of support. He could easily have been taken in flank while the Fifth North Carolina was in his front. Napoleon, with the same opportunity, would have made short work of it. For myself I make no claim to military renown on the occasion referred to. I moved without discretion, under orders of superior officers — no suggestion made by me was acted on by General Hill--and both of those officers have long since exonerated me from all responsibility, and both of them were afterwards promoted. So I take for granted that the result which happened was contemplated for some wise purpose, and that I was onl

my of criticising their commander and withholding confidence from him will now turn upon you. I shall assist you as far as I can to put it down. Neither you nor Napoleon, if he were alive again, could get any good out of an army while such a spirit prevails in it. And now, beware of rashness! beware of rashness! but with energyne's brigade of Anderson's division, with Wilcox and Perry of the same division co-operating; while Jackson's corps, less Early's division, like the Old guard of Napoleon, followed Anderson.
