uit of a retreating army, I deemed it my duty to lose no time in making the disposition to attack, regardless of their number and position, except to accomplish the result with the least possible sacrifice of life. Hooker sent forward Grover's brigade, and Bramhall's and Webber's batteries, and very soon all opposition on his front was silenced for a time. Longstreet, however, ordered up reinforcements, and soon had a section of Pelham's battery, and the three fresh brigades of Wilcox, Pickett, and A. P. Hill on the ground, driving Hooker back, with the loss of all his cannon, and heavy casualties. During his desperate engagement, Hooker reported his situation to Sumner, and Kearny was promptly ordered up with his division, while Heintzelman, the proper commander of the Third Corps, was sent to the spot to take charge. [See Opposing forces, p. 200.] A comrade in Hooker's division gave me an account of his experiences about as follows: Marching over the muddy road late

Pickett's brigade, headed by the Old Ironsides (18th Virginia), broke Porter's line just west of the Watts house. With regard to this break, General Law, in a letter to right, bringing up his reserves, again attacked and carried his front. At the last and successful advance the line from left to right was: Longstreet (Anderson, Pickett), Whiting (Hood and Law), Jackson (Winder and Lawton), Ewell (one or two brigades), and D. H.
