began victoriously at Mansfield, La., by the utter rout of General N. P. Banks by General Dick Taylor, and ended in a disastrous check at Yellow Bayou, owing to the greater part of the infantry supporting Taylor having been withdrawn and sent to Arkansas in pursuit of Steele. The army was waiting for hostilities to reopen. Another attempted invasion by way of Louisiana, Arkansas, or the Gulf cgeneral officers foresaw the result months before it was believed possible by the soldiery. General Taylor in his work, Destruction and Reconstruction, (page 197,) says: Upon what foundation the civiriver, where I believed Generals E. K. Smith and Magruder would continue to uphold our cause. Taylor, then a lieutenant-general, surrendered at Meridian, Miss., to General E. S. R. Canby on May 8thf the financial agents, as a precautionary measure. When the news of the surrender of Johnston, Taylor and Buckner was received they concluded there was no use in deferring action longer, and then re

out contemporaneous corroborative testimony, I have been forcibly led to the conclusion that in this book it is not always General Longstreet who speaks. Read what he says when discussing the events of the second day at Gettysburg, page 382: Colonel Taylor says, That General Lee urged that the march of my troops should be hastened, and was chafed at their non-appearance. Not one word did he utter to me of their march until he gave his orders at 11 o'clock for the move to his right. Orders fornatural and inevitable; but these did not serve to make his case an exception; and such was the story of his heroic achievements, they could not mar its brilliancy. It is much to be regretted that in the attempt to prove himself invariably right, he should have found it necessary to assail General Lee's motives, and defame his character while claiming for himself qualities as a soldier and leader superior to those possessed by his old commander. Very respectfully yours, Walter H. Taylor.

the noble and the true; Hands that never failed their country, Hearts that never baseness knew. The words on the rear of the base are: They died for the principles upon which all true republics are founded. On the left of the base is: Remember their valor, Keep holy the sod, For honor to heroes Is glory to God. The Monument Committee had the plinth so designed that at some future day four bronze medallions of Louisiana soldiers can be attached to it. These will probably be Colonels Taylor, Hays, Stark, and Stafford, who commanded the Louisiana regiments which were most constantly engaged in the Shenandoah Valley campaigns. When Colonel William Laughlin attended the reunion in Houston last year, he met Captain T. J. Bantz, of Winchester. The New Orleans veteran told his Virginia comrade about the superb collection of relics in the Confederate Memorial Hall, and interested him so much that he volunteered to secure a number of relics for the hall from the Winchester bat

engagement 87,64 men of all arms. If, however, we undertake to construct a table of strength of his army after the method adopted by the critic of General Fitz. Lee's book, these numbers would be materially increased. Treating all the engagements between the 14th and the 18th as one encounter, as does this critic, let us proceed to construct a statement, similar to his, of the strength of the Union army: The return of that army for September 20th, 1862, shows an effective total of93,149 The Federal loss at Boonsborough and Sharpsburg, as officially reported, was14,794 The force at Harper's Ferry was about12,000 ——— Total strength, by this method,119,943 We might thus contend that General Lee had 120,000 men opposed to him, which would bear to 57,000, the number of his army as made up by General Fitz. Lee's critic, about the same proportion as the less than 40,000 reported by General Lee, bears to the 87, 164 carried into action by General McClellan. Walter H. Taylor

erybody was in a good humor, and of course everybody laughed. At the shelling across the Rappahannock on the 24th of August, the 28th was sent to the support of Braxton's and Davidson's Batteries, and a part of the regiment was thrown forward with instructions to prevent, if possible, the destruction of the bridge across the river near Warrenton White Sulphur Springs. The most laughable fight was at Manassas Junction, August 27th, when Jackson got in Pope's rear, and the brigade chased Taylor's New Jersey command into the swamps of Bull Run. One of the 28th was very much astonished, after jumping over a bush from the railroad embankment, to find that he had also jumped over a Yankee crouched beneath. Another was still more astonished when he got on all-fours to take a drink of water, to find that a fellow had sought safety in the culvert. He was an Irishman, and after he had crawled from his hiding-place, he created an uproar by slapping the Tar Heel on the shoulder and remarki
