Every foot of ground was contested, and every possible hindrance imposed in the enemy's advance. We made charge afte and had to swim the river. Hunter and Crook were thus delayed by McCausland until General Early could be sent to save Lynchburg. As a reward for the gallant conduct of this squadron in that march a month's furlough was given it, and Lynchburg preLynchburg presented McCausland a horse, sword and pair of silver spurs for saving the city.

On the night of the 8th, in obedience to orders delivered by Major Joseph Van Holt Nash, Adjutant-General of Cavalry—Stuart's Corps-we advanced our regiment to the head of our brigade and division and march through the village of Appomattox Courthouse, where there had been a skirmish the night before. When we had passed the village some little distance, in the direction of Lynchburg, we were halted and ordered to dismount—to hold our horses and not to turn them loose. There we remained, holding them by their bridles, and sitting and lying down on the ground, catching every wink of sleep that was possible, until the morning of the 9th. Soon after day, General W. H. F. Lee rode to the head of our regiment, inquiring who was in command. When told and directed to myself, he promptly ordered, Captain, mount your regiment! This done, by his orders we moved forward an<

With these roads in Grant's possession our hope of success must vanish. And for the task of defending the extreme right, General Lee with that foresight which nt! We soon reached the top of the hill, the enemy at the time firing upon us, unlimbered, and got to work upon as pretty a line of battle in our front as I ever saw. We fought here some time, losing several wounded, among them a Mr. Davis, of Lynchburg, who lost his leg. After driving the enemy back upon his main line we returned to our camp, near Fort Gregg. And now while I write these lines my mind wanders back to the scenes that were enacted at this place. Here it was that Robert Ell
