Southern Historical Society Papers, Volume 32. (ed. Reverend J. William Jones), Remarks of Captain John Lamb on March 24, 1899, at Richmond, Virginia, in the Hall of R. E. Lee Camp, no. 1, C. V. In accepting, on behalf of the Camp, the portrait of General Thomas T. Munford, C. S. Cavalry. (search)
t often fall to the lot of this arm of the service. As the part he performed that day has been misunderstood and erroneous impressions prevail as to the cause of Jackson's delay at White Oak Swamp, let me, in the fewest words possible, give the exact situation. While Magruder engaged the Federal forces on the afternoon of the 29th of June, 1862, Jackson's forces were rebuilding Grape Vine Bridge, and only succeeded in crossing the Chickahominy after darkness had fallen. On reaching White Oak Swamp on the 30th, he ordered Munford to cross the stream, notwithstanding the enemy had torn up the bridge and planted their artillery so as to command the crossing.neer mortally wounded. But how much shorter would have been the bloody list filled up the next day at Malvern Hill. When Dabney says, this temporary eclipse of Jackson's genius was probably to be explained by physical causes; the whole story of the White Oak Swamp is told in a few words. I wish to emphasize the fact that Colone

musketry in our front told us that the enemy were in earnest. (By way of explanation let me say: Having been severely wounded at Chancellorsville, I was detailed as Commissary of our regiment. So, I generally saw the fighting from a point, where distance lent enchantment to the view.) Gradually the enemy forced our skirmish line back on the main body. About two miles from it Early decided to make a stand, his centre resting on the Berryville pike. The gallant Gordon was in command of Jackson's old division, and held the right of the pike. I think Generals Rodes and Robert D. Lilley held the left of our line. By 9 A. M. the battle was raging along the whole line. The heavy blue lines were repulsed time and again. Never before, in the history of the war, did our boys fight with such courage and desperation. They knew what was at stake, even the hospitable town and the dear old valley itself. By gradually flanking our right, the enemy began forcing our line back. Rhoades ha

Such was Jackson's ardor at this crisis of the battle that he continued his way witased as suddenly as it had begun. Captain Wilbourn, standing near Jackson, said: General, they must certainly be our men, to which he assst hold your ground, sir! You must hold your ground! This was Jackson's last order on the battlefield. He was then placed in an ambulanublic, and General Fremont again, at Cross Keys. In each battle Jackson's opponent had double the force he commanded. The design of the U their forces and crush Jackson by their overwhelming numbers, but Jackson's superior strategy of keeping them separated, retreating and advar developed upon endurance of numbers. Subsequent events proved Jackson's theory to be correct. The 2,800,000 soldiers enlisted in the No

ulaski, was then in the 4th Virginia, and he gives an account, afterwards endorsed, with some interesting incidents of this regiment. It is a notable fact that Jackson's brigade line furnished the first immovable obstacle to McDowell's advance, for while all the troops acted gallantly that day those previously engaged had been arriving reinforcements, in driving them from the field. Mr. Caddall calls attention to the fact that the rebel yell made its first appearance in the cheer of Jackson's men in their charge. The four deep line of the 4th and 27th Virginia was a formation that we do not hear of on any other field. It proved particularly fortuce of most historians, even of Colonel Henderson, one of the most accurate, as well as most wise, graphic and brilliant of military writers. The heaviest loss on Jackson's regiment fell upon the 27th Virginia, which, namely, 141 killed and wounded, nineteen of whom were killed, and this gallant little regiment was afterwards calle

ith his line thrown back at something like a right angle below the stone bridge, to protect the left flank of the army. Jackson's brigade was placed on the left of Hampton, Bartow and Bee, which commands had previously taken positions on the field, 3 o'clock the enemy had pushed forward a strong column of infantry and artillery, and had arrived in close proximity of Jackson's left flank near the Henry House. At this time the men of the 4th Regiment were lying flat on their faces on the grounh highly decorated uniforms, consisting of loosely fitting red breeches, blue blouses, with Turkish tassel as headgear. Jackson's men rushed at them, with fixed bayonets, every man yelling at the top of his voice. Here was the origin of the Rebel a fine battery of field artillery, Ricketts, which was in position near the Henry House, was captured. The charge of Jackson's brigade on that day turned the tide of battle, which to that time had seemed against the Confederates, and in a short

cut had no idea what the cause was, but soon the word was passed along: Put on your breeches, quick. Between the two rivers there is an elevated plateau, about fifteen acres in extent, which rises some ten feet above the surrounding surface. It was almost square. On the plateau stood a little village, the most picturesque place the writer remembers ever to have seen. Around the bluff of the little village there was a plank fence, along which the entire population stood, waiting to see Jackson's foot cavalry pass. Therefore, when the head of the column came in view of the people, the boys fled in disorder. We finally arrived at Rapidan and crossed the river. I think it was the 15th of November. After reaching the south bank the brigade halted in a scrubby woods, and stood on the roadside while a brigade of cavalry passed. The Mississippians indulged in every species of exasperating criticisms, and declared there were no Yankees ahead, otherwise the cavalry would not be mar
