Chattahoochie, &c. Captain Amaker's commission as captain was older than mine, but at his urgent request and that of Governor Perry I consented to assume the command of the two companies. Having marched to Chattahoochie arsenal we were stopped by a dispatch from Governor Perry directing us to remain there till further orders. In about a week it was decided by the officer in command of Florida troops at Pensacola not to attack Fort Pickens, and he accordingly dispatched Governor Perry to disbaGovernor Perry to disband my detachment. In the meantime the convention of Florida had determined to send delegates to a convention of such Southern States as had seceded from the Union, which was to meet in February at Montgomery, Ala. These de'egates from Florida were to be appointed by the Governor, by and with the advice and consent of the convention. Governor Perry dispatched me at Chattahoochie arsenal that he had appointed me one of the three delegates to this general convention, and directed me to return t

hich he finally did, and Gordon led brigade after brigade against the enemy, my own included, and we recaptured the works in our front and held them all day, and until 10 P. M., when we were withdrawn to form the new line. I remember sending Captain Perry, of my regiment, back that awful 12th of May, 1864, to tell our artillery to elevate their guns, as their shells were exploding just over us, and killing my men. Captain Perry returned and said: My God, they are Yankee batteries! At this batCaptain Perry returned and said: My God, they are Yankee batteries! At this battle, the musketry rolled for twenty hours continuously. So you see, this matter, which seems to be in such great confusion, happened twice, and comrades write about each without giving dates, and hence the conflict. I commanded the Fourteenth Georgia Regiment, Thomas's Georgia Brigade, Wilcox's Division, and A. P. Hill's Corps, and saw both occurrences, and all writers nearly are correct. Captain R. D.

comparison of his campaign in 1864 and Lee's in 1862. their strategy was similar. And the losses incurred in the Wilderness and the subsequent battles were about on a Par with Lee's losses in the Seven days battle and those Succeeding it. Leslie J. Perry's interesting argument. When General Grant, having been made lieutenant-general, came East and assumed direction of the armies operating against Richmond, the war had been in progress three years; about a dozen great battles had been ent advantage, whereas Grant, after losses not exceeding the other's, permanently fastened himself upon the very throat of the rebellion, and just eleven months from the time he set forth he had accomplished his object in its complete overthrow to recompense the country for its sacrifices. It is highly probable he would have made even a shorter campaign of it had he been in command instead of McClellan after or previous to the battle of Antietam. Leslie J. Perry. Washington, March 4th, 1896.

prised me beyond expression. My chief fear has been that you, whom I regard as my strongest friend in Washington, might have supposed me to be guilty of the extreme of folly. This telegram was supplemented by a letter on the same day, embodying the substance of both, and covering the whole case. This contemporaneous letter is entitled to great consideration in summing up the misunderstanding of these two old friends, both truthful men, concerning our misunderstanding, at Cincinnati. One thing is made clear by it—McClellan's policy at the time Buckner visited him was, and had been, a policy of strict neutrality toward Kentucky. It is not unlikely that, during a long night's conversation, without entering into any specific agreement, McClellan gave Buckner the impression that that policy of neutrality should continue, if the status quo was maintained, and he received no orders to the contrary from Washington. All the circumstances lend probability to this view. Leslie J. Perry
