Southern Historical Society Papers, Volume 8. (ed. Reverend J. William Jones), Gettysburg. (search)
The command of the Twenty-fifth regiment during the action devolved upon Lieutenant-Colonel J. A. Robinson--Colonel Higginbotham being wounded; the command of the Forty-fourth regiment upon Captain T. R. Buckner--Major Cobb being wounded. The skirmishers, commanded during the greater part of the day by Major R. D. Lilley, rendered most valuable services, and the energy and skill with which they were handled by that officer received my highest admiration. My chief medical officer, Surgeon Bushrod Taylor, brought to the performance of the difficult task devolved upon him the same ability, zeal, untiring industry and conscientious devotion to duty which have always marked his official connection with the brigade. To Captain R. Cleary, Acting Assistant Adjutant-General; Lieutenant V. Dabney, Volunteer Aid-de-Camp; Lieutenant F. Pendleton Jones, Aid-de-Camp (badly wounded and since dead), who were with me on the field, I am under obligation for the gallant and intelligent manner in whi

eleven. Total batteries, seventeen. Now the return of A. P. Hill's division for July 20th, 1862, gives his officers and men present for duty as 10,623 (see Colonel Taylor's Four Years with General Lee). He had twenty-eight infantry regiments and nine batteries then, and assuming his infantry to have been 10,000, we have the aveg in that fight. This would give Archer's regiments but 267 each on August 9. No return of Winder's and Ewell's divisions for this period is to be found. Colonel Taylor estimates them together at 8,000 men; but I think he has probably overlooked the fact that these divisions contained not merely the troops that had followed Je higher figure the whole twenty-eight regiments may have numbered 7,000, and the artillery would have added 600 or 700 more. This is probably the force that Colonel Taylor puts at 8,000 men. But at Cedar Run Jackson had in addition six regiments, constituting Lawton's brigade, five and a half constituting Stafford's brigade,

the battlefield) were trying to make comfortable the wounded, they were surprised at the appearance of a party from the camp of the enemy under a flag of truce, asking permission to bury the dead. The battle of Pleasant Hill was fought by General Taylor, under the impression that he had defeated Banks' army at Mansfield the day before. This opinion would seem to have been justly formed, from the incidents of that battle. The captured train, the captured cannon, the thousands of prisoners, y under my command, encountering burning wagons, scattered material of war, the capture of prisoners along the road, who had strayed from their commands or been lost in the darkness of the night — all told of a defeated and demoralized army. General Taylor himself told me at three o'clock of the day of the battle of Pleasant Hill, that the superb line of battle which I had watched all day, with its serried lines compact and entrenched, and which he had not seen, was a mere feint to cover the re

Lee moved from Spottsylvania Court House towards Hanover Junction, he left the worst wounded men of the Third Corps d'armie in permanent hospitals near the field of battle on the farm of Mr. Stuart. Dr. Kemper was left in charge of all; and Dr. Bushrod Taylor, Surgeon Forty-eighth Virginia, was left in charge of Second Corps Hospital. The army having moved sooner than it was hoped, we were left without supplies, in a wasted, impoverished, but kind community; exposedto the enemy; and, of course,ich the enemy retreating, beaten by Early, had fired for eluding his pressing column. For about twenty days we lost an average of five per day; and as the wounded died, and the hospital became better organized under the judicious management of Dr. Taylor, the nurses were reduced in number and dismissed to rejoin their commands. We had many reports of the enemy's approach; but for some time they did not appear. In my ministrations I endeavored daily to visit every man, irrespective of his army
