d, each of our divisions in turn crossed, one relieving another, so that during the five succeeding days, each command spent a day or more on the south side. There was an occasional exchange of papers between the Sixth Corps pickets and those of the enemy, but no further exchange of hostilities. The first symptom of Lee's great northward movement, so ably did he manoeuvre, was not perceived by the Federals until the 9th of June; when Pleasanton's cavalry struck the enemy's columns at Brandy Station, on the line of the Alexandria and Orange Railroad, east of Culpepper, C. H., this revealed in a degree the purpose of the Confederate general, but too late for preventive opposition; he had in effect, as De Peyster has said, gained a week's march. The Federal commander was now compelled to hasten his army by shorter lines than those pursued by his adversary to positions between the Confederate host, and Washington and Baltimore; what conflict—and with what fruits—would eventually resu

It was an exciting race; for a good stretch of the way, past Brandy Station, we sped, sometimes at a trot, always at quickstep. It must have been past noon when our di of the column; we were soon on the south side of the river and were rapidly marching toward Brandy Station, as though bent upon placing ourselves in Lee's rear. Now it was the turn of the Confederatigilance until the last nail was driven. While thus alluding to the humors of the camp at Brandy Station, it occurs to us to notice the curious mistakes that would arise in conversation between pa
ampaign march Locust Grove line at Mine Run First Massachusetts Battery at Mine Run night retreat 142-145 At eleven o'clock on the 26th of November, our corps, having been delayed since sunrise in the midst of the Third Corps camps at Brandy Station (that command having been ordered to precede us), moved with slow and tedious steps toward Jacob's Ford on the Rapidan. The movement was of that peculiarly irritating character which can only be appreciated by those who have experienced the ach their assigned positions on the noon of the following day. The Sixth Corps was en route at sunrise; it was ordered to follow the Third. Who might be responsible for the delay of that corps, which had not left its camps on our arrival at Brandy Station? It is not our province to determine; nor is any criticism implied upon that gallant command which bore the whole burden of the conflict, with the divisions of Ewell's corps at Locust Grove, and lost 400 brave men. But pursuing the wrong roa

In two neighboring rerough a quaint hamlet, called James City, to the west of Culpepper, C. H., and we remember seeing, as we drew near to Brandy Station, a venerable, hale old man standing on the piazza of his house. Here he stood once upon a time, when there was no co for the minute details of the gigantic task that had been allotted to him. We received three days rations on leaving Brandy Station, and at the end of each day and a half received three days more, until, we believe, we arrived at Cold Harbor. That

He led his company at Fredericksburg, Salem Heights, Gettysburg, Mine Run, 1863; in the campaigns from Brandy Station to Petersburg in the spring and summer of 1864, he handled his command with admirable judgment and consummate skill.
