The regiments had received some recruits between the 15th and the 31st of May; some more came between the 10th and 1st of June. Von Borcke says that the rew days before the battle, as stated by reliable authorities, and mostly by official reports. The assumption that our army was increased in strength after Chancellorsville through the operation of the draft, or by recruits in any way, is without the slightest foundation in fact.

H. Anderson. There were six brigades so detached under Anderson. His own (Anderson's) division of three brigades and the three brigades of Wilcox, Featherston and Pryor, that I commanded; these were assigned to General Anderson the afternoon he marched from near Frederick City for Harper's Ferry, and subsequently formed a portion of his division.

Detailing the operations embracing Chancellorsville, Fredericksburg and the Plank Road, &c.: Meantime, Sedgwick had forced Early out of the heights at Fredericksburg, &c., &c. While this is true, the impression made may be a little variant from the truth. The heights when captured by Sedgwick were held by Barksdale's brigade of McLaws' division; this, however, was at the time under General Early. Page 98.

Hill with his staff at a point about three-fourths of a mile from Chancellorsville. General Lee, General Anderson, General Pender, and a number of general ogades of A. P.

one instance, when the Twenty-sixth North Carolina regiment encountered the second line of the enemy, his dead marked his line of battle with the accuracy of a line at dress parade. Archer's brigade on the right, Colonel D. B. Fry commanding, after advancing a short distance, discovered a large body of cavalry on its right flank. Colonel Fry judiciously changed his front, thus protecting the right flank of the division during the engagement. This brigade (Archer's), the heroes of Chancellorsville, fully maintained its hard won and well-deserved reputation. The officer making the report of the part it played in the first and second charges, has failed to particularize any officer or soldier who displayed particular gallantry, which accounts for no one being named from this gallant little brigade. After breaking through the first and second lines of the enemy, and several of the regiments being out of ammunition, General Pender's division relieved my own, and continued the pur

tars, are glazing, and the loved prattle to which the songs of the Seraphs were in their ears discord is only a faint, fading, far-off echo. He had passed over the river. He had met the last enemy. He was dead! Dead, with his harness on him, Rigid and cold and white; Marking the place of the vanguard Still in the ancient fight. Dead, but the end was fitting, First in the ranks he led-- Ah, what sad prophecy in the lines which follow, as we remember how our fortunes waned after Chancellorsville!--Dead, but the end was fitting, First in the ranks he led, And he marked the height of his nation's gain, As he lay in his harness — dead! Speech of General Marcus J. Wright. As a representative of our gallant comrades of the West, General Wright was warmly greeted, and made the following appropriate response: As a member of the Army of Tennessee, which I believe has not heretofore had a representative at any of your reunions, I thank you sincerely for the toast just propose
