rything we publish, and this is the first instance in which we have gotten the wrong name. Major Irving A. Buck, of Baltimore, the name signed to the paper, and not Major Brock, the name which the printers put at the head of it, was the author of the interesting sketch of Cleburne and his division at Missionary Ridge and Ringgold Gap, which we published in our last number. These mistakes in names are very annoying, and we felicitate ourselves that they do not occur often. The Louisiana division, A. N. V., had, we judge from the reports, a most delightful reunion and banquet in New Orleans on the 21st, and we deeply regretted our inability to accept a kind invitation to be present on the occasion. We are glad to learn that their monument scheme has been so entirely successful that they expect to dedicate it on the 10th of May next, and have secured General Fitz. Lee as the orator of the day. We hope to be able to greet our comrades of the Pelican State on that occasion

as came under my own observation. Now, unasked, I must again obtrude myself most reluctantly upon the public, as General Harris, in the last No., 1880, of the Southern Historical Society Papers, does my old brigade and myself great injustice. General Harris charges me with having remained utterly silent for fifteen years before coming forward to claim all the honors of the defence of Fort Gregg for my brigade of North Carolinians, to the exclusion of his Mississippians and the gallant Louisiana artillerists. The facts are these: I, as early as the 10th day of April, 1865, at Appomattox Court-house, in my last official report, stated that a part of my command retreated to Battery Gregg, which was subsequently attacked by an immense force, and fell after the most gallant and desperate defence. On the 20th May, 1867, I furnished information about my command to General Lee, at his request, through General Wilcox, and called attention to the fact that Harris's brigade had been given

uently in conversation with General Harris. The four guns were withdrawn from Whitworth under protest; but the enemy were too close to permit the withdrawal of the guns from Gregg. It was owing to my proximity to that battery, no staff officer could have entered it without my seeing him. It seems not a little strange that General Harris could have supposed such orders could be properly given without my knowledge, and without passing through me. He further says, it was a glorious struggle; Louisiana represented by the noble artillerists, and Mississippi by her shattered bands, stood side by side together, holding the last regularly fortified line around Petersburg. No reference to any other command but his own brigade and the artillery, and holding the last regularly fortified line around Petersburg. The line he held was an unfinished line, and was not the last, for he fell back from it to the main Petersburg lines, near a mile in the rear. I have previously expressed an opinion of

les's department commander, but two days before he was killed on his line of battle: near Marietta, Ga., June 12th, 1864. Hon. Jas. A. Seddon, Secretary of War: Brigadier-General Ruggles, of the department of Alabama, Mississippi and East Louisiana is, I believe, regarded as one of the best organizers we have in the west. He is now without employment. I am not aware that the War Department has made any appointment of an officer to take charge of and organize the reserves of Mississippi and East Louisiana. If no appointment has been made, I desire respectfully to present the name of Brigadier-General Ruggles for that office. (Signed), L. Polk, Lieutenant-General. Had General Polk lived, he intended to make this command well worthy any officer, and General Ruggles (General Ruggles had been under General Polk but a short time) at its head, with the increased rank of Major-General, as General Polk hoped to have it — tardy justice would have been rendered one whom he c

n the rear, which came nearer and nearer, we soon saw that it was Stonewall himself, mounted on that old sorrel which we afterwards came to know so well, and galloping along the column with uncovered head. We, too, at once took up the shout, and gave a hearty greeting to the great captain, who had come to lead us to victory, and the mountains echoed and re-echoed with the glad acclaim. About two o'clock P. M. on Friday, May 23d, our advance (consisting of the First Maryland and Wheat's Louisiana Tigers, all under the command of General George H. Steuart) made a dash at the Federal force stationed in Front Royal, which seemed to be taken completely by surprise, but which made a gallant resistance as it was pressed rapidly back over the two forks of the Shenandoah river. Jackson was always in the forefront — sometimes even in advance of the skirmish line — and manifested the greatest impatience to press forward; at one time directing an aid to order up every rifled gun and every

fter the organization of that Virginia Association, a branch division was organized in the State of Louisiana, which we have named the Association of the Army of Northern Virginia, Louisiana Division.Louisiana Division. This occurred in September, 1875. Since that time we have had three presidents--Major E. D. Willett, the first, Governor Frank Nicholls, the second, and Major J. B. Richardson, the third. Our oo name of living man shall be placed on it. The simple inscription, Army of Northern Virginia, Louisiana division, tells its own story. If you wish more look on the other side of the die — there is r such a testimonial, for the fame of Jackson is closely identified with the heroic history of Louisiana. In the beginning of the war the Confederate States were wanting in all the material needfu of the enemy, and, beating them in succession, drove his vast host from our soil, the sons of Louisiana were a staff on which he securely leaned. At Port Republic, a battle as noticeable for the

eneral Ewell, with Trimble's brigade and some cavalry, was sent on the morning of Saturday, May 24th, by the direct road to Winchester, while Jackson moved his main body across to Middletown, on the main Valley pike. Coming in sight of Middletown, Jackson saw that the pike was filled with a rapidly retreating column, and immediately he ordered Captain Poague, of the famous Rockbridge artillery, to open on the moving mass, while General Dick Taylor was ordered to charge with his splendid Louisiana brigade. The best troops find a sudden attack on them while retreating in column a severe test, and these broke in wildest confusion, the main body hurrying on towards Winchester, while a part retreated back to Strausburg. Our brigade was hurried forward at a double quick, but only got there in time to see the rear of the retreating column, and witness the wild confusion presented by upturned wagons, dead and wounded horses and men, muskets, knapsacks, etc., scattered over the fields, wh

Kirby Smith's Kentucky campaign. by Major Paul F. Hammond.--paper no. 3. The next day--Sunday--the army remained in the vicinity of Richmond, and the day was occupied in paroling prisoners, burying the dead and taking care of the wounded. In this the Federals were given every facility, and treated with consideration and humanity. The able and humane medical director of our army, Dr. S. A. Smith, of Louisiana, offered their surgeons an equal share in the hospitals and hospital stores. In every respect, by officers and by privates, the prisoners were treated with greatest courtesy. In the main they appreciated it, and conducted themselves very well. But one instance, a piece of sharp practice occurred, worthy of notice, as illustrating the absurd and lying boastfulness of a large portion of the Northern press in this war, and, at the same time, the low cunning which has made the name Yankee, in a certain sense odious, and only another synonym for trickery and treachery the wor

me, says: Hence it became necessary to find other troops to oppose Early. One division (Ricketts's) was, as has been seen, detached on the 5th of July from the lines before Petersburg and sent to Baltimore, where it arrived in time to bear the brunt of the battle at the Monocacy. The other two divisions did not receive their orders till the 9th, and did not reach Washington till two P. M. the 11th, barely in time. A part of the Nineteenth Corps, just arrived at Fort Monroe from Louisiana, were likewise dispatched to Washington and arrived at the same time. (Page 113.) He further says, on page 116: Major-General H. G. Wright, United States Volunteers, commanding Sixth Corps, reported at three P. M., and his troops came up about four P. M. A force of about nine hundred of this battle-tried corps was placed on the skirmish line for the night. That is, the night of the 11th. My troops did not all get up and into line before four o'clock, and my leading brigade was not in lin
