Colonel Theodore Lyman, With Grant and Meade from the Wilderness to Appomattox (ed. George R. Agassiz), IV. Cold Harbor (search)
e batteries by cutting a ship canal across Dutch Gap, has called for volunteers, at an increased rate of pay. Whereupon the Rebel rams come down and shell the extra-pay volunteers, with their big guns; and we hear the distant booming very distinctly. I think when Butler gets his canal cleverly through, he will find fresh batteries, ready to rake it, and plenty more above it, on the river. The Richmond papers make merry, and say it will increase their commerce. August 14, 1864 . . . General Parke got back from his sick leave and took command of the 9th Corps. He is a very pleasant-looking man and liked apparently by everyone. He has been obliged twice to return to the North by reason of malarial attacks, which is a pity, as he acted usually as adviser to General Burnside and had an excellent effect on him. He cured himself twice of malarial fever by accidentally taking an overdose of medicine. The last time, he had been told to take one pill, containing something very strong;

went down then to the Jones house, where were Parke's Headquarters, and talked with him. I saw the while Warren, with two divisions, followed by Parke, with two divisions of the 9th Corps, had move copying from letters found in their pockets. Parke was now ordered to form on the left of Warren in did not form, so as to make an extension of Parke's line. At 5.30 we were sitting in the Peeble more musketry, and naturally we supposed that Parke was assaulting. But presently there came from Inspector-General, under the easy rule of General Parke, who succeeds the rule of Burnside the Fat . . Yesterday, Loring, whom I saw over at General Parke's Headquarters, was speaking of the quaint shooting, no shooting! General Meade rode to Parke's on account of a statement from a deserter, t is funny to see two engineers, like Meade and Parke, ride along works and pleasantly discuss them.re.

the faintest sound reached the ear! At other times these same guns will sound quite close to us. I could cite many such contrasts. I rode forth with good Duke Humphrey, to see the dress-parade in the 9th Corps. That and the 5th, not being in the immediate presence of the enemy, have a good chance for drill. The 9th Corps, in particular, have gone into the evolutions to an alarming extent, an exercise which, like Wistar's balsam of wild cherry, can't do harm and may do good. Around General Parke's Headquarters there is a chronic beating of drums and fifing of fifes and playing of bands. We sat some time and watched the drilling; it was quite fun to see them double-quicking here, and marching there, and turning up in unexpected positions. At last the gallant Colonel McLaughlen, after many intricate manoeuvres, charged and took a sutler's tent, and the brigade was then marched to its quarters. As we returned, there was a nig brigade, having its dress parade in fine style. They

ors, I can tell you. Generals Meade, Warren, Wright, Parke, Humphreys, Ord, Gibbon, Ayres, Griffin, Rawlins, Inattack with much injury to the enemy. Meantime, General Parke had ordered that the works should be retaken, if the little rustic chapel you saw; for there was General Parke with his Staff, waiting to receive the General aadquarters. I have just now a despatch from General Parke to show you, said General Meade. Ah, quoth the ready there is the best despatch you can show me from General Parke! The President is, I think, the ugliest man I eaid, very quietly: Very well, then I want Wright and Parke to assault to-morrow morning at four o'clock. Thesen flank and left quite isolated. At the same moment Parke attacked the powerful works in his front, somewhat tered Benham to rush up from City Point and reinforce Parke, and I managed to send something to pretty much ever his left on the river, swung the 24th round to join Parke, on the right, and voila the city invested on east,
