he bottom of the river, the prow of the ram still clinging to her, and exciting for a few moments serious apprehensions for the safety of the Albemarle. The vessel soon worked herself free and followed the other retreating gunboats. Maffitt thinks that this brilliant naval success insured the triumph of General Hoke, for it gave him, on the water side, a vulnerable point of attack. General Hoke had invested the town with his own brigade, the brigade of Ransom, and one of Pickett's under Terry. When Cooke returned, his ship opened fire with its two guns upon Fort Williams, the citadel of Plymouth. General Hoke moved General Ransom's brigade around to attack from the river side. Ransom's men gallantly stormed the works, meeting not only the usual artillery and infantry fire, but encountering hand-grenades thrown from the works. On all sides the Confederate forces closed in, and, after a struggle in which both sides fought as only seasoned soldiers are apt to fight, the town wit
ral Beauregard estimated his strength at 25,000 men. On the 13th of May, General Terry assaulted the Confederate lines near Wooldridge's hill. Gen. M. W. Ransom's brigade, on the extreme Confederate right, was engaged in his repulse. As Terry advanced, the Confederate skirmishers, under the dashing Capt. Cicero A. Durham, mronted by Generals Weitzel's and Brooks' Federal divisions. General Hoke faced Terry's and Turner's divisions. The Federals occupied a line of works that the Confeith fierceness. Especially on Johnson's right was the fighting continuous, Generals Terry and Turner struggling tenaciously to hold their ground. General Clingman' of May at Howlett's house. Those held by Ames were captured and retained; but Terry was fortunate enough to regain from the Confederates those that he at first loske was selected to command the expedition. He took with him his own, Ransom's, Terry's Virginia brigade, the Forty-third North Carolina regiment, of which your dist

Evidently not expecting a second attack, he withdrew Hoke from Sugar Loaf, and the division went into camp near Wilmington, sixteen miles from Fisher. But General Terry, with about the same force that General Butler had commanded, except that it was reinforced by two negro brigades, was ordered to retrieve the first reverse. On the 14th of January, Terry landed 8,500 men without opposition, and that night, Terry landed 8,500 men without opposition, and that night, moving across the peninsula, constructed a line of field works from the ocean to Cape Fear river, thereby cutting off all land communication between the fort and General Bragg's command. No effort of any importance seems to have been made by the commanding general to assist the doomed fort. After the first bombardment, five companies of the Thirty-sixth regiment (artillery) returned from Georgia and took their old place in the garrison. The total force there, after the return of these men, w
some soldiers on furlough, and supported by Captain Twitty, of Avery's battalion and Maj. T. G. Walton of the militia, bravely held in check for some hours one of Stoneman's detachments. At Waynesville, on the 8th of May, occurred the last engagement on North Carolina soil. There, Col. J. R. Love, with a force of about 500 men of the Thomas legion, routed a regiment of Union cavalry. After the fall of Fort Fisher, the Federal government sent General Schofield's corps to New Bern. General Terry's corps at Fisher was ordered to capture Wilmington, effect a junction with Schofield, and move up toward Goldsboro to reinforce Sherman, who was then marching for North Carolina. The shattered fragment of the Western army had again been placed under Gen. Joseph E. Johnston, and the soldiers gave their old commander an enthusiastic welcome. General Hardee, commanding most of the forces in Sherman's front from upper South Carolina to Averasboro, showed fight whenever circumstances al

At Cold Harbor he held one of the most important parts of the Confederate line with his division, repelling repeated furious assaults, and again before Petersburg fought in the battles of June. From the Petersburg trenches he moved in December with his division to Wilmington to confront Butler, who was frightened away from Fort Fisher by part of his command. After the landing of the second expedition under Terry, he advanced his two brigades and drove in the enemy's pickets, and according to the accounts of the Federal officers, might have relieved Fort Fisher had he not been ordered back by General Bragg. He subsequently opposed the advance of Cox from New Bern. On March 8th, while wading a swamp, his column was suddenly met by a fire from the enemy, when he displayed his presence of mind by ordering his officers to make all the men cheer. By his coolness, what might have been a disaster to his
