t the same thing. General Ewell on the left was directed to delay his attack until he heard Longstreet's guns upon the right. About 5 P. M., a cannonade was directed from Johnson's front against Cemetery Hill, followed by an attack just before sundown by Johnson on the hill in his front. Johnson described the position as a rugged, rocky mountain, heavily timbered and difficult of ascent, a natural fortification, rendered more formidable by intrenchments and abbattis; nevertheless, George H. Stewart's brigade on the left seized a portion of the breast-works and held them until the following day. Two of Early's brigades, taking up the movement begun by Johnson, also penetrated the enemy's lines, bringing off several pieces of artillery and a number of prisoners. Before Rodes had completed his arrangements, Early had withdrawn and dusk set in, so that he did not, nor did Pender's division on the right participate in the attack. It is apparent there was want of concert throughou

ades, was the soldier whose portrait we unveil tonight. As I stand before you my thinghts leap back over the forty-five years that lie between, back to the day when I saw him leading his brigade through the storm of shot and shell on the field of Gettysburg. None died on that field with greater glory than he, though many died, and there was much glory. Yes, comrades, we know how many died whose names we hold in deathless honor-Edmonds and Owens, and Patton, and Williams, and Allen, and Stewart, and Hodges, and Magruder, and the knightly Garnett. The heart of Virginia was wrung with anguish. Her stately head was bowed in grief. The flower of her chivalry fell in that fatal charge. But none fell so lamented as Armistead, none crowned with glory like his. Many another had done valiantly, but he surpassed them all. He did a deed that was matchless, unique, without a parallel on that field, when, leading his men with unflinching courage through the storm of fire, he pierced the

s report. He says that on the evening of the 29th, he received Gen. Ewell's instructions to move back to the west side of South Mountain, together with a copy of Lee's order to him-evidently the first order. Now if my hypothesis is correct, and if Ewell received Lee's letter in the early hours of the 29th, what was to prevent Captain Elliott Johnson from riding from Carlisle to York, a distance of 36 miles, as Col. Mosby points out, between 8 A. M., and 5 P. M.? I myself rode for General Geo. H. Stewart 50 miles by daylight on June 23rd, in Pennsylvania. But on the supposition that Ewell received that famous letter and order on the morning of the 28th, how can we account for the fact that Early did not receive Ewell's order till the evening of the 29th? I submit that these facts make it beyond contradiction that there is an error in the date of the letter as it was copied from memory. The supposition that General Lee sent that letter to Ewell on the night of June 27th bristles
