The battle of greatest lustre.
From the Times-dispatch, May 4, 1906.
An incident in Chancellorsville campaign and what grew out of it.
Operations of Cavalry—e story of General Averett's interview with a Confederate prisoner Retold.
No battle, probably, in which the Federal and Confederate armies were engaged reflected more lustre on Southern generalship and the valor of the Southern soldier than the bloody struggle of Chancellorsville.
The events which took place on that historic field and at Salem Church, May 13, 1863, were of a nature so important and brilliant as to eclipse and obscure the co-operating movements and detached services performed at the time in connection with the two contending armies The operations of the cavalry having covered a wide extent of territory and issued in numerous skirmishes without any regular battle, have claimed but slight attention in comparison with the desperate fighting and signal successes on the chief scenes of action.
