Lee's effective force at the commencement of the campaign was not less than 61,000, and Beauregard's command about Richmond and Petersburg, including the troops sent from North Carolina and South Carolina up to May 15th, approximated 30,000. The losses of these armies are only partially reported. In the Wilderness Ewell's corps lost 1250 killed and wounded; McGowan's brigade (Wilcox's division), 481 killed, wounded, and missing; Lane's brigade (Wilcox's division), 2

ne the lines were entirely stripped of regular troops, with the exception of Wise's brigade on our extreme left, and of Sturdivant's battery of four guns. Every other regiment had been ordered across the James to aid General Lee on the north side. occupied by 30 home guards with 4 pieces of stationary artillery. One mile farther to the right were two howitzers of Sturdivant's battery; one mile farther still were lunettes 26, 27, and 28, at the intersection of the lines with the Jerusalem roasalem road, and when half-way there I heard the rattle of musketry from that point. Being just then at the position of Sturdivant's section, I ordered the sergeant to bring on one of his howitzers to lunette 28, and hastened toward it, catching glimand there, being joined by another column advancing upon the Blandford road. But this also was checked by a section of Sturdivant's battery, which came on their flank from another road. Under the fire of artillery and the charge of Dearing's cavalr

onel Paul, the whole of Smith's corps was actually assaulting the Petersburg lines. But General Lee finally said that he had already issued orders for the return of Hoke's division; that he would do all he could to aid me, and even come himself should the necessity arise. The Confederate forces opposed to Smith's corps on the 15th of June consisted of the 26th, 34th, and 46th Virginia regiments, the 64th Georgia, the 23d South Carolina, Archer's militia, Battle's and Wood's battalions, Sturdivant's battery, Dearing's small command of cavalry, and some other transient forces, having a real effective for duty of 2200 only. These troops occupied the Petersburg line on the left from Battery No. 1 to what was called Butterworth's Bridge, toward the right, and had to be so stationed as to allow but one man for every 4 1/2 yards. From that bridge to the Appomattox — a distance of fully 4 1/2 miles--the line was defenseless. Early in the morning — at about 7 o'clock--General Dearing, o

[Composed of Barton's and Crutchfield's brigades, with Tucker's naval battalion attached.] The following battalions of artillery, borne on Lee's return for January 31st, 1865, are not enumerated in the parole list of April 9th, from which this roster of troops and commanders is mainly compiled, viz.: Cabell's of the First Corps, Nelson's of the Second Corps, Lane's and Eshleman's of the Third Corps, and Sturdivant's of Anderson's Corps. There were also some forces from the defenses of Richmond, known as Ewell's Reserve Corps, commanded by Lieut.-Col. Thomas J. Spencer, which are not embraced in the foregoing list. The loss of Lee's army in killed and wounded is not known. The number paroled at Appomattox was, of infantry, 22,349; cavalry, 1559; artillery, 2576; and general headquarters and miscellaneous troops, 1747 = 28,231.

He further said in his congratulatory order that he had Hood's and Batte's battalions of Virginia militia, about two hundred men each; the Forty-Seventh Regiment of Virginia Volunteers numbering about three hundred men; one company of Woods' Twenty-Third South Carolina with some fifty men; Sturdivant's Battery and Taliaferro's Cavalry, with which he kept our forces at bay and punished them severely until they reached the Jerusalem plank road. General Kautz reports again that he captured all there were of Taliaferro's cavalry outside of the intrenchments. Wise further adds that he had the following additional forces: Major Archer's corps of reserves, second-class militia, and one howitzer under the command of Brigadier-General Colston, which forces he puts at less than one hundred

The Howitzer veterans, abouty 60 strong, were close behind the South Carolinians. The old cannoners were under the charge of Captain Charles L. Todd, of this city. The banner of the Howitzer Association, a beautiful design upon blue silk, was carried by Rev. William M. Dame, of Maryland, and Messrs. James T. Gray and Thomas Booker, of this city. Sturdivant's and Parker's Batteries were well represented in the procession. The veterans of these organizations were commanded by Captains W. H. Weisiger and J. Thompson Brown respectively. The Confederate Veteran Association, of Washington, headed by a drum-corps of fifteen, and in command of Major R. W.
