Daring November Buell reviewed Thomas's command at Lebanon, and advised with him abo consider the propriety of making an attack on Thomas before he could be reached by Schoepf or his rhe battery of his brigade and to report to General Thomas. On his way he notified Colonel Van Clevethe other two, and ordered a general advance. Thomas met this by placing a section of Kenny's battelayed an insignificant part in the engagement, Thomas's superiority in that particular availing him retreat.

ven on the battle-field, when the parties were there released, and those given by the parties who were delivered at the points designated in the cartel. I have been thus particular in these explanations, that the nomenclature herein used may be fully understood. Aiken's Landing, on James river, a place about thirty miles distant by water from Richmond, and Vicksburg, were the first places selected for the delivery of the prisoners of both belligerents. At the former place I met General Lorenzo Thomas, the first Federal agent of exchange, in August, 1862. Not appreciating the magnitude of the work before us, we began to exchange officers by name, one for another. That method was, however, very soon abandoned for the more expeditious one of exchange by grade, or by equivalent in mass. Our first duty was to compute the paroles held by each side, and to declare exchanges so far as equivalents could be furnished. That computation left quite a balance of paroles in Confederate hand

ment, having a bed placed in his private office and his meals served there also, lest, during his absence after office hours, the President should install General Lorenzo Thomas as Secretary of War, as he threatened to do. General Grant, then General of the Army, was consulted as to calling out the troops, but, happily, he advisedailed. Every day startling announcements were made of the President's overt acts, and of the resentment of Congress. The climax was reached when Brevet Brigadier-General Lorenzo Thomas was arrested on the charge of attempted usurpation of authority that did not belong to him as adjutant-general of the War Department. He was relebond of five thousand dollars, signed by a Mr. George R. Hall and Elias A. Eliason. President Johnson irritated Congress further by sending in the name of General Lorenzo Thomas for Lieutenant-General. He was not confirmed. The warfare continued until articles of impeachment of President Johnson were prepared and presented in

neral Heintzelman. Fortunately my father's papers, which are in my possession, contain replies to both allegations,--one in the handwriting of General Heintzelman's Adjutant-General, and the other the rough draft of a letter addressed to General Lorenzo Thomas, then Adjutant-General of the Army. General McClellan says [see above]: all the Corps commanders on the south side were on the 26th directed to be prepared to send as many troops as they could spare in support of Porter on the next dtt's Ford, and reached the Charles City road with the rear of his column at 10 P. M. when the same statement was first made in 1863, General Heintzelman wrote the following letter: headquarters defenses of Washington, April 11th, 1863. General L. Thomas, Adjutant-General, U. S.

s of Bancroft, Dilger, Eakin, Wheeler, Hill, and Taft, under Major Osborne, were placed in the Cemetery, where the kind and thoughtful General Howard had caused the tombstones, and such monuments as could possibly be moved, to be laid flat on the ground, to prevent their being injured by shot and shell. On the left of the Cemetery, near Zeigler's Grove, were Hancock's batteries, under Woodruff, Brown, Cushing, Arnold, and Rorty, commanded by Captain Hazzard. Next to these, on the left, was Thomas's battery, with those of Thompson, Phillips, Hart, Rauth, Dow, Ames, and Sterling, under McGilvray, in reserve. On the extreme left were the batteries of Gibbs and Hazlett, the latter now commanded by Lieutenant Rittenhouse. at midday there was an ominous silence, during which General Lee entered Pennsylvania College building, which he was using for a hospital, ascended to the cupola, and, in violation of the acknowledged principles of honor in military life, stood under the sacred yell

oldier with a little silver medal, the only honor of the kind known to have been bestowed by the Conspirators upon their servants during the war. This medal, the appearance of which is given in the above engraving, the exact size of the original, was made of a thin plate of silver, with the initials of Davis Guards and a Maltese cross rudely engraved on one side, and the place and date of the achievement on the other. The original, from which the drawing was made, is in the possession of Thomas L Thornell, of New York City, to whom it was presented by an officer who received it from one of the Guards. The writer is indebted for its use to the courtesy of his friend, Henry T. Drowne, of New York. Had Franklin landed a major's command for action, the squad in the fort might have been easily driven away by them, and Houston, only forty miles distant, and flanking Galveston, might have been captured, for General Washburne, with a force equal to Franklin's, was ready at Brashear City t
