egiment, back that awful 12th of May, 1864, to tell our artillery to elevate their guns, as their shells were exploding just over us, and killing my men. Captain Perry returned and said: My God, they are Yankee batteries! At this battle, the musketry rolled for twenty hours continuously. So you see, this matter, which seems to be in such great confusion, happened twice, and comrades write about each without giving dates, and hence the conflict. I commanded the Fourteenth Georgia Regiment, Thomas's Georgia Brigade, Wilcox's Division, and A. P. Hill's Corps, and saw both occurrences, and all writers nearly are correct. Captain R. D. Funkhouser writes from Mauvertown, Va.: The details of the Lee-to-the-rear incident are given at the request of W. T. Gass, of Texas. The claims of Alabama and Texas are correct. Their account occurred on the 5th or 6th of May, 1864, at the Wilderness proper. The battle of Spotsylvania, or Horse-shoe, occurred on the 12th of May, fifteen or twe

After reaching the Maryland side I signed the draft and Colonel Thomas took the Patuxent boat and went on to Baltimore and Philadelphia to purchase the arms, etc. I directed him to get the. I also stated to him that I should join him at Point Lookout. At 12 midnight I went on board with my party; I saw Colonel Thomas dressed as a woman, to avoid suspicion, as he had high, large trunks such as milliners use; they contained arms and ammunition. I told Colonel Thomas to hold himself in readiness; as soon as we cleared the wharf we would take the steamer. In a few minutes we left the wharf and I soon made the appointed signal. The trunks were then opened, the men seized the arms

ly, swiftly to throw up entrenchments, and by reason of the firmness with which Thomas held his position—which caused that superb warrior to be called, The Rock of Chencranz has issued orders for all our troops to be concentrated here to-night. Thomas will get in about eleven P. M., unless prevented by the enemy, who have been fimed, and ready for battle on such impregnable ground as above indicated. General Thomas's report tells how his army was here disposed for battle, at the very time 's right, and placing them in Rossville Gap, between Bragg and Chattanooga, General Thomas says: I then proceeded to Rossville, accompanied by Generals Garfield f cavalry, with Speer's Infantry Brigade as a support to these, and all, as General Thomas telegraphed, in high spirits, it is not difficult to see what would have hation at Rossville was not one for occupation, and during the night of the 21st, Thomas moved his army to Chattanooga — the objective of Rosencranz's most remarkable c

with his two brigades, followed General Jackson. General McLaws was enabled by the capture of Harper's Ferry to escape from the trap prepared for him, for he crossed the river and proceeded at once to rejoin General Lee by moving up the south bank of the Potomac. General Jackson, with his two divisions and Walker's, reported to General Lee on the afternoon of the 16th of September. General McLaws reached Sharpsburg in the forenoon of the 17th. General A. P. Hill, with his division—except Thomas' Brigade, left in charge of Harper's Ferry—did not start to rejoin General Lee until the morning of the 17th. He made a forced march to Sharpsburg, seventeen miles distant, having to cross the Potomac river, reached the battlefield in the afternoon and went immediately into action. I have given this review of the division and subsequent concentration of General Lee's army in order that the condition of the several commands that participated in the battle may be properly understood.

The steamer was soon filled to its utmost capacity. Just as the steamer moved from the landing General Floyd received information that the enemy's gunboats were in sight, coming up the river. The engineer of the steamer was ordered to put on full head of steam and proceed up the river as speedily as possible. Thus Generals Floyd and Pillow made their escape from Fort Donelson and reached Nashville the next morning. The most of the 56th Virginia Infantry came off on this steamer. Lieutenant Thomas, of Company F, later captain, now Sergeant of the Police Court, Richmond, Va., is one of the survivors of the old 56th Virginia Regiment. General Forrest, with his cavalry, succeeded in cutting their way out, and arrived at Nashville in a day or two. A member of my battery, W. M. Sharp, came off with his command. There was much interest and some excitement manifested by the people of Nashville in consequence of the fall of Fort Donelson. Hopes were entertained by many of the ci

right to protect that flank of the army from the enemy's cavalry while it fought his infantry in front. On the 2d day of July it was under a heavy artillery fire several times during the day, and its skirmishers displayed great gallantry. It took a very conspicuous part in the so-called Pickett's charge of the 3d of July. The brigade occupied the left of the imperfect second line, and when Davis' Brigade was repulsed at Brockenbrough's, did not get beyond the position occupied by General Thomas, it moved handsomely forward with the rest of Lane's brave fellows who took the position of those two brigades on the extreme left of the first line. Though a column of infantry was thrown against its left flank and the whole line was exposed to a raking artillery fire from the right, it advanced in magnificent order, reserving its fire in obedience to orders, was the last command to leave the field, and it did so under orders. Its loss was twelve killed and ninety-two wounded. On t
