Meantime some uneasiness had existed on the morning of the 22d lest our infantry ammunition should run short.

At midday I was informed of the approach of the train, and General Ramseur was General Ramseur was informed that he might safely use up all he had.

From this day to the closing scene at Appomattox the two North Carolina regiments served with Ramseur's—later Cox's—brigade, of Rodes's division, and the three Virginia regiments were consolidated with the remnants of Jones's brigade, of Gordon's division. In these separate commands a warm feeling always existed between the men who had stood firmly by each other on so many hardly contested fields. They followed the fortunes of war under Early in the Washington city and Valley campaigns. The last seen of them by the writer was on the field of Winchester September 19, 1864, where he,

Rodes bringing up the rest of his division to Ramseur's assistance, Hancock was thrown completely back on that portion of the captur gallant Rodes, as they passed into the deadly fray. Coming in at a time when Ramseur was heavily pressed, the day was saved. This was the last reinforcement sent courage; but without unjust discrimination, we may say that Gordon, Rodes and Ramseur were the heroes of this bloody day. General Lee recommended Gordon to be made Major-General of date 12th May. Rodes and Ramseur were destined, alas! in a few short months, to lay down their noble lives in the Valley of Virginia. There was nds which the pious hands of our fair women shall lay on the tombs of Rodes and Ramseur and of the gallant dead of the battle of twenty hours at Spotsylvania. The
