soldier. The battle thus far had consumed five hours; there came then, as is usual, a mutual cessation from strife --a sort of tacit understanding that there would be some artillery practice and skirmishing only while each party was getting ready to renew the conflict. Meanwhile, Rosser had come to replace Garland, and several Confederate brigades had been brought up and located for a rush forward, or for an effectual defense. On our side Reno's division had closed up to Willcox's, Sturgis's, and Rodman's divisions. The men of the South, possessed of American grit, were wont to exhibit all the elan of the French in action. They were ready sooner than Reno and charged furiously upon our strengthened line, aiming their heaviest blows against our right, upon which they had brought to bear plenty of cannon. Though not at first prepared to go forward, Reno's men stood firmly to their line of defense. At last, not being satisfied with this, though volley had met volley, and

he rode up, Oh, general, they fired a volley at me, but it passed over my head The other corps (the Ninth) of our grand division was commanded by O. B. Willcox. Through Sumner, Willcox was required to give support to the Second Corps (Couch's) on his right hand and to the First Corps (Reynolds's) on his left. The word support is an uncertain one, and often a very unsatisfactory one in a battle. The front of the Ninth Corps extended from our flank to the left across Hazel to Deep Run. Sturgis's division left the city limits, came under a direct fire almost immediately from artillery and infantry, marched across a rough ascending slope, and attained a crest, a close position to the Confederates' sheltered line. The division remained there till after dark. Once the Confederates attempted to move out and turn one of Couch's divisions, when our Ferrero's brigade drove them back to their cover of stone walls and rifle pits. Many valuable lives were lost in that sharp work. At 3
