y were respectful, humane, and soldierly. We were organized into squads of ninety, and I soon discovered that the young sergeant in charge of our squad was a fine young fellow. I shall refer to him more explicitly farther on. I have read Richardson, Kellogg, Urban, Spencer and Grisby, on Andersonville, the most of it recently, and I was and am surprised at the free-lance recklessness of description. Let us first discuss the topographical selection of the Andersonville site for a prison camp. I realize that this phase of the question has been reverted to and minutely described every five or six years, since Richardson first gave his views to the public, early in the autumn of 1865. The selection of the site was excellent. I do not propose to dilate on the beauties of a prison. * * * I wouldn't advise any one to seek a prison as a place at which to spend a vacation. Of course there was suffering, hunger and misery among the prisoners at Andersonville. I had my share of i

All of these gentlemen not only consented to become members of the association, but are warmly in favor of the Fredericksburg park. III. Virginia has, through her Legislature, taken up the Fredericksburg Park proposition as a State matter. Her Legislature has endorsed it, and Governor Tyler is of the opinion that it is the one park that should be first establi

recruit and organize the classes not embraced in the Confederate conscription. His new command was called The State Line, and was independent of the Confederate government. I was aware that it had rendered valuable services in Southwest Virginia, of which I was anxious to make a record. But not being a Confederate organization no reports of its operations are to be found in the Official Records, and General Floyd's reports to the Governor were doubtless among the files of Adjutanteral Richardson's office, which was burned on the night of the evacuation of Richmond. It was, therefore, with great pleasure that we received last week a letter from Captain Micajah Woods, of Charlottesville, who was an officer in the State Line, and for a time an aid on the staff of General Floyd, in which he says: I hope during the coming spring to be able to send you a condensed history of the State Line, commanded by General John B. Floyd; in fact, I have several letters written to my parent

dets of the V. M. I. at the battle of New Market was unquestionably one of the most brilliant feats of arms of our great war. It has been often described, but the story will be read again and again, and always with thrilling interest. Comrade C. A. Richardson finds in his scrap-book the following account of the part borne by the cadets in this famous battle written by Mr. Howard Morton, a Federal soldier, which appeared in the Pittsburg Dispatch, and which, we agree with him in thinking, is worthy of republication. In his enthusiasm Comrade Richardson says: In all the heroic annals of time this memorable battle-epic, like a rich and rare gem, will ever continue to sparkle and glow in all the effulgent splendor of an undimmed lustre. Here is Mr. Morton's account: Opposite is the enemy's line of gray belching forth fire and smoke. Those immediately in front of us are comparatively inactive. They have not yet mended their broken fences. We look to the further end of
