his report of the Battle of Chancellorsville, he says: To the skillful and efficient management of the artillery, the successful issue of the contest is in a great measure due. The ground was not favorable for its employment, but every suitable position was taken with alacrity, and the operations of the infantry supported and assisted with a spirit and courage not second to their own. It bore a prominent part in the final assault which ended in driving the enemy from the field of Chancellorsville, silencing his batteries, and by a destructive enfilade fire upon his works, opened the way for the advance of our troops. Colonels Crutchfield, Alexander and Walker, and Lieutenantonels Brown, Carter and Andrews, with the officers and men of their commands, are numbered as deserving especial commendation. General Lee never had the time to write a report of the most brilliant campaign ever fought by him with the Army of Northern Virginia, and, in my opinion, the most brilliant t

Lee confronts him at ChancellorsvillChancellorsville, and in the meantime Stonewall Jackson works himself around and strikes, like a thunderbolt, Howard's right wing and doubles it back.

Manassas had emblazoned his bayonet with glory! The second year passed with five hundred and sixty-four battles and engagements, including Shiloh, the seven days battle, which made the dark waters of the Chickahominy run red, Second Manassas and Fredericksburg, and his prowess was proved to the civilized world. The third year passed with six hundred and twenty-seven battles and engagements. It saw his pride at the highest and his hope brightest when, fresh from the victories of Chancellorsville, he invaded the soil of Pennsylvania. Alas! for human hopes! Gettysburg turned backward his footsteps and started anxiety in his breast. How long could these bloody years last? Surely, not longer than seven, as his ancestors' revolution had cost! Then the fourth year passed, with seven hundred and seventy-nine battles and engagements. His anxiety was over. He saw the inevitable end. Hope of success was gone.

Time will not permit us to dwell upon these events; but at Mechanicsville and Beaver Dam creek, on the 26th of June, Hill's division began the series of battles known as the Seven Days Around Richmond, and bore the brunt of those bloody affairs. The division fought against heavy odds, strongly post
