d bravery, and the conduct of the men was that of veterans. No company in the army was more exposed, and none, I believe, so long a time, and yet no man quailed. There were instances of individual heroism worthy of special notice; but where all did so well, it would seem almost invidious to single out individuals. Respectfully submitted, J. D. Imboden, Capt. Battery, 3d Brigade, C. S. A. --Richmond Dispatch, July 26. Report of Major Walton, of the Washington artillery. Headquarters, Washington artillery, near Stone Bridge, Bull Run, July 22, 1861. General: I have the honor to report:--On the morning of the 21st instant, (Sunday,) the battalion of Washington artillery, consisting of four companies, numbering 284 officers and men and thirteen guns--six 6-pounders, smooth bore, four 12-pound howitzers, and three rifled 6-pounders, all bronze — under my command, was assigned to duty as follows: Four 12-pound howitzers, under Lieutenant J. T. Rosser, commanding; Li
whole ground around — knew every hill, ravine, and pathway — had made all the necessary arrangements and planned the battle. Not knowing at what point of a semicircle of ten miles around Manassas the enemy would attack, his forces had to be scattered in such a way as to guard all points, prevent a flank movement on either side, and guard his intrenchments and supplies in the centre. We got up in the morning at daylight, took a cup of coffee and remained quietly laughing and talking at Headquarters, while the scouts were passing in and out bringing news from the enemy. At a quarter past six in the still, bright morning, we heard the first deep-toned sound of cannon on the centre of our line, about three miles off. We waited till nine for further information, and at nine the generals ordered to horse, and away we dashed to the hill overlooking the point at which cannon, like minute guns, had continued slowly to fire. The enemy could not see any of our troops, but were firing at the
Doc. 30 1/2.-the battle at Bethel, Va. Colonel Townsend's report. Headquarters, camp Hamilton, June 12, 1861. To Major R. A. Pierce, Brigade-Inspector, &c.: sir :--I have the honor to report for the information of Brigadier-General Pierce, that on Sunday evening, June 9th, I received orders from him to have my command in readiness, with one day's rations, to move that night to form a part of a column, composed of two regiments from Newport News, and Col. Duryea's and my own, intended to make a reconnoissance in force towards Yorktown. In obedience to these orders, with the concerted sign of a white badge upon our left arm, (at midnight,) I marched my regiment to Hampton, where the General met the command and accompanied it. On approaching a defile through a thick wood, about five or six miles from Hampton, a heavy and well-sustained fire of cannister and small arms was opened upon the regiment while it was marching in a narrow road, upon the flank in route step, and w
Doc. 34.-proclamation of Gen. McClellan. Headquarters, Department of the Ohio, Grafton, (Va.,) June 23, 1861. To the Inhabitants of Western Virginia: The army of this department, headed by Virginia troops, is rapidly occupying all Western Virginia. This is done in cooperation with and in support of such civil authorities of the State as are faithful to the Constitution and laws of the United States. The proclamation issued by me, under date of May 26th, 1861, will be strictly maintained. Your houses, families, property, and all your rights will be religiously respected. We are enemies to none but armed rebels, and those voluntarily giving them aid. All officers of this army will be held responsible for the most prompt and vigorous action in repressing disorder and punishing aggression by those under their command. To my great regret I find that the enemies of the United States continue to carry on a system of hostilities prohibited by the laws of war among belligerent
Doc. 62.-Gen. Banks' proclamation. Headquarters, Department of Annapolis, July 1. In pursuance of orders issued from the headquarters of the army at Washington for the preservation of the public peace in this department, I have arrested, and now detain in the custody of the United States, the late members of the Board of Police, Messrs. Charles Howard, Wm. Getchell, John Hincks, and John W. Davis. The incidents of the past week have afforded justification of this order. The headquarters under the charge of the board, when abandoned by their officers, resembled in some respects a concealed arsenal. After a public recognition and protest against the suspension of their functions, they continued their sessions daily. Upon a forced and unwarrantable interpretation of my proclamation of the 28th ult., they declared that the police law was suspended, and that the police officers and men were put off duty for the present, intending to leave the city without any police protectio
Doc. 84.-battle of Rich Mountain, Va. Gen. McClellan's official report. Headquarters, Department of the Ohio, Rich Mountain, Va., 9 a.m., July 12, 1861. Col. E. D. Townsend: We are in possession of all the enemy's works up to a point in the right of Beverly. I have taken all his guns, a very large amount of wagons, tents, &c.--everything he had — a large number of prisoners, many of whom were wounded, and several officers prisoners. They lost many killed. We have lost, in all, perhaps twenty killed and fifty wounded, of whom all but two or three were in the column under Rosecrans, which turned the position. The mass of the enemy escaped through the woods, entirely disorganized. Among the prisoners is Dr. Taylor, formerly of the army. Col. Pegram was in command. Colonel Rosecrans's column left camp yesterday morning, and marched some eight miles through the mountains, reaching the turnpike some two or three miles in rear of the enemy, defeating an advanced post, a
Doc. 87.-Colonel Pegram's surrender. July 12, 1861. Gen. McClellan's report to Lieut.-Gen. Scott. Headquarters, Beverly, Va., July 13, 1861. Col. E. D. Townsend, Washington, D. C.:-- I have received from Col. Pegram propositions for the surrender, with his officers and remnant of his command — say six hundred men. They are said to be extremely penitent, and determined never again to take up arms against the General Government. I shall have near nine hundred or one thousand prisone the northern prisoners by the South. I am, sir, your obedient servant, John Pegram, Lieutenant-Colonel P. A. C. S., Com'dg. General McClellan sent the following reply by his Aide-de-Camp, Lieutenant Williams, United States Army: Headquarters, Department of the Ohio, Beverly, Va., July 13, 1861. John Pegram, Esq., styling himself Lieutenant-Colonel, P. A. C. S.: sir: Your communication dated yesterday, proposing the surrender as prisoners of war of the force assembled under you
Doc. 91.-report of Col. Davies. Headquarters, 2D brigade, 5TH Division, Alexandria, July 14, 1861. To Col. Miles, Commanding 5th Division Troops, Department of Northeastern Virginia. Sir::--In pursuance of your verbal order of yesterday, I made a reconnoissance on the Fairfax road, seven miles out, and on the Richmond road about ten miles, and on the Mount Vernon road as far as Mount Vernon. The pickets on the Fairfax road captured a newly-painted ambulance, containing a set of harness and two bags of buckwheat. On the curtain, on the inside, was distinctly written in pencil, John Hughes, Fairfax. The picket on the Richmond road saw three horsemen, who, by a dexterous turn, evaded a shot from the picket. The picket on the Mount Vernon road, in its diligence, discovered, on the premises of one John A. Washington, formerly a resident and still an occupant of a large estate near Mount Vernon, what was supposed to amount to eight thousand pounds of bacon, and seventy-five ba

Doc. 95.-General Polk's General order. General order no. 1. Headquarters, Division No. 2, Memphis, July 13, 1861. having been assigned to the charge of the defence of that part of the Valley of the Mississippi which is embraced within the boundaries of Division No. 2, I hereby assume command. All officers on duty within the limits of said Divison will report accordingly. In assuming this very grave responsibility, the General in command is constrained to declare his deep and long-settled conviction that the war in which we are engaged is one not warranted by reason or any necessity, political or social, of our existing condition, but that it is indefensible and of unparalleled atrocity. We have protested, and do protest, that all we desire is to be let alone, to repose in quietness under our own vine and our own fig-tree. We have sought, and only sought, the undisturbed enjoyment of the inherent and indefeasible right of self-government — a right which freemen can nev
