of these facts, the Second, Third, Fourth, Fifth, Sixth and Seventh soon followed. The first six were sent to Virginia, the Seventh to Hatteras. These regiments were under the following colonels: Solomon Williams, W. D. Pender, Junius Daniel, R. M. McKinney, Stephen Lee and W. F. Martin. However, many of them were soon reorganized. Between the 15th of June and the 18th of July, the Eighth, Colonel Radcliffe; the Tenth, Colonel Iverson; the Eleventh, Colonel Kirkland; the Twelfth, Colonel Pettigrew; the Thirteenth, Colonel Hoke; the Fourteenth, Colonel Clarke, were organized. It will be noticed that no Ninth regiment is included in these fourteen. There was some controversy about the officers of this regiment, and this number was subsequently given to Spruill's cavalry legion. These were the regiments that afterward had their numbers changed by ten: i. e., instead of retaining their numbers from one to fourteen, as organized, they were changed to number from eleven to twenty-f
e first shock of the enemy's fire. While this ensanguined conflict was raging on the right, little was done on the left until about 5 o'clock. Then Hampton's, Pettigrew's and Whiting's brigades attacked the infantry and artillery of some of Couch's regiments that had been driven in their direction and heavily reinforced by Sumneved some distance to the front when his attention was called to a large force massed in column by company in a field near the road, and also near the swamp where Pettigrew and Hampton were wounded. In the fog of the evening, the enemy had failed to make out Pender's colors. At a glance Pender saw that the enemy was situated so fa: In all my reading of veterans and coolness under fire, I have never conceived of anything surpassing the coolness of our men on this field. In this action General Pettigrew was desperately wounded. As he, thinking that he was mortally wounded, refused to be moved from the field, generously saying that others less severely wound

Evans' South Carolineral Robertson was sent by the upper Trent road, and General Pettigrew's brigade, with fifteen guns under Major Haskell, wasn's Ferry, to bombard the gunboats and Fort Anderson. General Pettigrew's brigade consisted of the following North Carolina riatory success could not, however, be followed up, as General Pettigrew, after every exertion, found it impossible to carry os on the river, and if possible, shell the garrison. General Pettigrew, however, found his artillery and ammunition so worth shells from the others burst just outside the guns. Pettigrew's Report. So rather than sacrifice his men by storming the work with infantry alone, General Pettigrew wisely decided to withdraw. The Twenty-sixth regiment had been under orders sithere was some spirited fighting around the town, and General Pettigrew at Blount's mills repulsed, after a sharp attack, a c
Cashtown on the 29th of June. From that point General Heth sent Pettigrew's North Carolina brigade to Gettysburg to procure supplies. When General Pettigrew arrived at the outskirts of the town, he found it occupied by the Federals, and, not knowing the force there, he returned to Cashtown. This was the first service of Pettigrew's brigade with General Lee's army, but, notwithstanding this fact, it was to render on: The division on the left of Pickett, under command of General Pettigrew, was in considerable part made up of North Carolina troops, cckenbrough, who was just south of the pike. Archer, supported by Pettigrew, was south of the pike. Both brigades faced Seminary ridge. Wheship of that gallant officer and accomplished scholar, Brig.-Gen. J.

The gallant dead. We yesterday published a sketch of the brilliant career and heroic death of General Hatton, of Tennessee, and now copy from the Charleston Courier a fitting tribute to the memory of Gen J. Johnston Pettigrew, who also lost his life on the bloody field of the "Seven Pines" on Saturday last. The laurel and the cypress flourish side by side, and the shouts of victory are ever blended and subdued with the voice of walling and lamentation. The victory which we confidentory can be which looks to our ultimate deliverance from a fate incomparably worse than death No brighter, nobler, or more gallant spirit has sealed in martyrdom on the field devotion to our cause than General J. Johnston Petil grew. James Johnston Pettigrew was a son of Hon. Ebenezer Pettigrew, of Tyrrell county, North Carolina, a of our fellow-citizen, James L Pettigrew, and was born in 1861.
