Appomattox Courthouse. Account of the surrender of the Confederate States Army, April 9, 1865. By Colonel Herman H. Perry. Interesting and Hitherto unpublished particulars. [From the Atlanta, Georgia, Constitution November, 1892.] The story of General Lee's surrender must ever have a sad interest for those who admire the brave. While much has been written about that event, still there is lacking that inside information of the incidents which led up to it. A most interesting paper, read before the Confederate Veteran's Association, of Atlanta, spreads much light on the subject. It is from the pen of Colonel Herman H. Perry, now of Waynesboro, Georgia, who was assistant adjutant-general on the staff of General Sorrell. Colonel Perry was himself the officer who received from the hands of General Grant's messenger the written demand upon General Lee that he should surrender. The letter produced. The letter of Colonel Perry is addressed to Hon. Robert L. Rodg

fully retreated before Sherman from Dalton to Atlanta, covering a distance of one hundred miles anded, the case is practically closed with these Atlanta volumes, which carry affairs down to when DavSherman's advance, superseded him in front of Atlanta with General John B. Hood, July 17, 1864, thos own terms, and was gradually pushed back to Atlanta, in what is generally admitted to have been ar spur from Richmond, followed by the loss of Atlanta. With depleted forces he finally took the gee fight, and that he did not intend to defend Atlanta. This is the essential point made in all Davim in the Bull Run, Peninsular, Vicksburg and Atlanta campaigns. And, it must be confessed, the of retreat, and cite the stubborn fights before Atlanta and at Franklin as proof of it. His ultimate had been placed in command, instead of Hood, Atlanta would have been saved. Finally, in general, dorsed upon Johnston's official report of his Atlanta operations: November 12, 1864.

00 at Gettysburg; 15,000 sustaining a frightful repulse from 60,000 at Fredericksburg; 100,000 attacked and defeated by 50,000 at Chancellorsville; 85,000 held in check two days by 40,000 at Antietam; 43,000 retaining the field uncertainly against 38,000 at Stone's river; 70,000 defeated at Chickamauga and beleaguered by 70,000 at Chattanooga; 80,000 merely to break the investing line of 45,000 at Chattanooga; 100,000 to press back 50,000 (afterwards increased to 70,000) from Chattanooga to Atlanta, a distance of 120 miles; 500,000 to defeat the investing line of 30,000 at Nashville; and finally, 120,000 to overcome 60,000 with exhaustion after a struggle of a year in Virginia. We are not discussing the question of which is the better soldier. There are logical reasons why it took three or more Federals to overcome one Confederate. It was not for want of courage on the part of the Federal soldier. The men who laid their lives on the sacrificial altar in front of Marye's Heights

The last article provides that neither discussion of political or religious subjects nor any political action shall be permitted in the organization, and any association violating that provision shall forfeit its membership. General John B. Gordon, Atlanta, Georgia, was elected the Commanding-General, and General George Moorman, New Orleans, the Adjutant-General and Chief of Staff of the organization, which offices they still hold. It is believed that department organizations now exist in nearly, if not every Southern State; that of Virginia has been announced as follows: Circular-letter, no. 1: Headquarters United Confederate Veterans, Department of Virginia, October 20, 1892.
