upon the greeting. They stood facing each other, some thirty feet from where I lay, Lee's left side and back toward me, Jackson's right and front. He began talking in a jerky, impetuous way, meanwhile drawing a diagram on the ground with the toe o concerning him. General Hill, during the winter of 1861-1861, frequently expressed to me his unbounded confidence in Jackson's unbounded genius, and predicted that, if the war should last six years, and Jackson live so long, he would be in supreus, if you please—but dear old Dick's simony led him up to pure and undefiled religion. Ewell used to say the secret of Jackson's success as a soldier lay in his emphasis of the maxim, Time is everything in war—more than numbers, preparation, armams that startled you from your blankets, and double quicking up into line and into battle. Now, then, let us formulate Jackson's system of war. 1st. The religious or subjective basis. Intense realization of the sovereignty of God, with its no

Sherman's army, and including them, made up the large number of about 120 river boats. It looked as if the city could not escape this time, as these two large armies moved from different directions, co-operating with each other, and toward Vicksburg as the objective point. But the compaign was a short and decisive one, and both movements were defeated. Before Sherman started the Confederate cavalry, under General Forest, about December 11th, destroyed sixty miles of railroad between Jackson, Tenn., and Columbus, Ky., and soon after Sherman left Memphis the Confederate cavalry, under General Van, Dorn, dashed around the flank of Grant's army, attacked and seized his depot of supplies for his army at Holly Springs, burned them up or utterly destroyed them (December 20th), necessitating the falling back of Grant's army to Memphis for supplies. Sherman appears. Sherman appeared in the Yazoo river on Christmas day, his transports, guarded front, flank and rear by Porter's gunboa

men killed and fourteen wounded, with ten slaughtered horses, and Graves, the battalion major, lay around its guns when it ceased firing to let Liddell pass to the front in a charge that drove the foe back to where Breckinridge had pushed before. Then, with crippled carriages bearing its dead and wounded, the Fifth Company was withdrawn to where Bridges' captured guns stood, and stripped them and others to be fit, and soon it reported back to enter the fray again. Many other episodes at Jackson, Missionary Ridge, Resaca, Kennesaw Ridge and other fields might be added to exemplify the Fifth Company's mode of fighting, but the above instances are deemed sufficient. The Washington Artillery always found pleasure in according praise and doing honor to its gallant adversaries, and on many battlefields it stood in admiration of their deeds and daring. Its survivors, while denying the correctness of the challenge and duel story, want no better evidence of the gallantry and stubborn
