Stuart, availing himself of the discretion allhis direct road to Gettysburg; wherefore, on the morning of the 30th he moved across country to Hanover, Chambliss in front and Hampton in rear of his long train of two hundred wagons, with Fitzhugh Lee well out on his left flank. About 10 A. M.

ense of his home during the battle; but these are not all. Upon the first indication of an invasion of Pennsylvania, the 26th Regiment, P. V. M., was organized and mustered into the United States service at Harrisburg, under the command of Colonel W. W. Jennings of that city. Company A of this regiment, to which I belonged,, was composed of students from the Lutheran Theological Seminary and the Pennsylvania College of Gettysburg, and of citizens of the town; one other company came from Hanover, but a few miles distant. On June 23d we left Harrisburg for Gettysburg, to be used, I believe, as riflemen among the hills near Cashtown. A railroad accident prevented this plan from being carried into effect, and kept us from reaching Gettysburg until the 26th, by which time General Early had reached Cashtown. In accordance with orders received from Major Granville O. Haller, Acting aide-de-camp to General Couch, commanding the Department of the Susquehanna.--editors. in command o

M. for Culp's Hill. Johnson thereupon deferred his attack and awaited Ewell's instructions. General Lee had, however; during the night determined to attack the Federal left with Longstreet's t arrived — that the report had spread along the line. Lieutenant O. S. Barrett, in a pamphlet sketch of the Old Fourth Michigan infantry [Detroit, 1888], relates a similar occurrence in the Second Corps. He says: We arrived at Hanover, Pennsylvania, on the afternoon of July 1st. . . . An aide-de-camp came riding along, saying, Boys, keep up good courage, McClellan is in command of the army again. Instantly the space above was filled with the hats and caps of the gratified soldiers.

and guiding at the slightest touch on the neck; never refusing a fence or breaking from the column; crowding together and to the front, yet taking or avoiding the obstacles with intelligence, they carried their riders over rocks and fallen timber and fences that the boldest hunter would hardly attempt to-day; and I doubt if there was a single fall of man or horse, except from the shot of the enemy. I may be permitted a remorseful tribute. My powerful bay had been disabled in the action at Hanover, and I was riding my bugler's horse, a gentle sorrel, scarred and stiff with long service. Whem I saw the work before us I condemned him, and would have ordered some trooper to change if it had not seemed like exposing another's life,--and yet, how he sprang into the charge! How he leaped the four walls! How he cleared Farrington's horse as it rolled over in the rocks! And how gently he carried me from the field, although blood spurted from his side at every step.
