he was in the open field, and ordered battle for the 31st.
General Pickett, with three brigades of his division, two of B. R. Johnson's division (Ransom's and Wallace's), with the cavalry, was ordered to engage Sheridan's cavalry at Five Forks, while General Lee attacked, with McGowan's, Gracie's, Hunton's, and Wise's brigades,ordered his well-chosen line examined and put under construction of field-works.
Corse's, Terry's, and Steuart's brigades of Pickett's division, and Ransom's and Wallace's brigades of B. R. Johnson's division, were posted from right to left.
Of Pegram's artillery, three guns were planted at the Forks, and three more near his righnting at right angle against the enemy's cavalry columns.
It is not claiming too much for that grand division to say that, aided by the brigades of Ransom and Wallace, they could not have been dislodged from their intrenched position by parallel battle even by the great odds against them.
As it was, Ayres's division staggered
opers from the rear to the advanced guard, and called General Gordon, commanding in front, for report and orders.
The advance was then at Appomattox Court-House, Wallace's brigade resting in the village.
His orders were to march at one o'clock in the morning, the trains and advanced forces to push through the village in time for f close pursuit.
General Gordon reported, as I remember, less than two thousand men. (General Fitzhugh Lee puts it at sixteen hundred, but he may have overlooked Wallace's brigade, which joined the advance on that day.) My column was about as it was when it marched from Petersburg.
Parts of Ewell's, Anderson's, and Pickett's commands not captured on the march were near us, and reported to me, except Wallace's brigade.
On the 9th the rear-guard marched as ordered, but soon came upon standing trains of wagons in the road and still in park alongside.
The command was halted, deployed into position, and ordered to intrench against the pursuing army.
