th all his might whatsoever his hand found to do at the call of duty. At the battle Manassas, while charging the enemy, he bethought him that his ammunition was expended; and stooping over a dead soldier, he gathered from his belt a handful of cartridges and transferred them to his own box with such quickness and dexterity as not to be thrown out of his place in the ranks— a remarkable instance of coolness in a young volunteer for the first time under fire. When I related this to Colonel Robert Preston, of the Twenty-eighth, God bless the boy, said the gallant old soldier. You were not present on the night when we contemplated a surprise of the enemy's outposts near Washington. When the temper of the men had become such that it was thought necessary to call for volunteers, company by company, and to take only such as were willing to go, at the call, three men from Company E stepped to my side without hesitation or a moment's deliberation; one of the three was William Cocke.

R. E. Withers, of Danville; 19th, Major Henry Gantt, of Albemarle, and the 28th, Col. Robert Preston, of Montgomery, paraded in full strength to welcome the 8th regiment, Col. Eppa Hunton, of Prince William, which had been assigned to the 3d Brigade. About one mile from the headquarters of the 19th regiment, the "Bloody 8th," as Col. Hunton's corps is designated, was received by the left and marched to the right, when they took position, the band of the 19th regiment and the music of the other regiments playing as it marched by the line in column. The three receiving regiments then
it can be repaired in an hour. Altogether this raid has been of great benefit to this section. It has shown our people what determined resistance can do. Fight, fight, under all circumstances, should be the order when raiders invade the country; for in this case one hundred, and fifty men, commanded by fighting officers, and aided by car whistles, repulsed and finally compelled 1,300 Yankee cavalry men to abandon their programme of destruction and double quick it to Yankeedom. Col. Robert Preston, in command of one hundred and fifty citizens of Montgomery and New River, promptly repaired to New River bridge, and were there waiting the arrival of the infamous invaders. In the fight with the Yankee raiders at Wytheville was a Methodist preacher, who made himself quite conspicuous for gallantry. During the melee he singled out his man and fired, and at the crack of his gun the Yankee fell. Horrified at having shed human blood, the preacher rushed up to his fallen foe, and,
