s warrant as a cadet, to be dated the 30th day of June, 1857, would be made. The conditions were fulfilled by creditable examinations and excellent deportment which secured the warrant as a cadet in the service of the United States, dated as promised over the hand of John B. Floyd, Secretary of War, January 22d, 1858. His course at the Academy was marked with creditable distinction; but the tocsin of war having sounded, and although within a month of graduation, he, with the heroic General James Dearing, the dashing General Thomas L. Rosser, and other noble spirits, left the Academy to give their services to their native States. On May 1st, 1861, John Letcher, Governor of Virginia, commissioned W. F. Niemeyer Second Lieutenant in the Provisional Army of the State of Virginia, and on May 9th he was ordered by the Adjutant-General of Virginia to report to Major-General Walter Gwynn, commanding Virginia Forces at Norfolk; thereupon General Gwynn, on the 10th of May, ordered him to r

gade was dispatched later. These were his own troops which had been sent to Lee. At Chester Station, Hoke found partial transportation by rail, and sent forward first Hagood's Brigade, then Colquitt's, while the remainder of his division continued the forced march along the pike. When Smith, with his corps, 22,000 strong, had arrived before Petersburg at noon that day, the three miles of entrenchments threatened, were held by Wise's Brigade, some detached infantry, the local militia and Dearing's Cavalry—in all about 2,200 effectives of all arms. After consuming the afternoon in reconnaissance and preparation, Smith, at 7 P. M., assailed with a cloud of skirmishers, and carried the lines in his front. Just after this success, Hancock's Corps arrived, doubling the Federal force present; but the enemy, instead of pressing on and seizing the town, which now lay at his mercy, determined to await the morning before making his advance. Hagood's Brigade reached Petersburg at dark, and

th Virginia Cavalry, in April, 1862, and served his country well up to the time of his death, at Appomattox, April 9, 1865. He had participated in many hard fought engagements before the final campaign from Five Forks to Appomattox. Directly after the Beverley raid in January, 1865, our regiment the Twelfth, was furloughed home for some weeks on account 0f the scarcity of forage. At the proper time all were ready to meet the foe, and our brigade was placed under the command 0f General James Dearing, a worthy successor of the peerless Turner Ashby and the gallant Rosser. John Williams Ashby took his place in the ranks and did his whole duty at Five Forks, and in every other action in which his command was engaged, including the hard fight at High Bridge. At Appomattax, Sunday, April 9, 1865, General Gordon was ordered to force a passage through the Federal lines, and in the midst of the fierce combat which ensued Ashby was mortally wounded by a cannon shot, and left in cha

I have been up yonder where Dearing is, and looked across at the Yankees. Then he told me a good joke he had on our dashing and debonair chief of artillery. He had ridden out on the skirmish lined Mars Robert wished to ask him what he had seen of those people that was worth reporting; but he was woefully mistaken. This was all the General had to say: Major Dearing, I do not approve of young officers needlessly exposing themselves; your place is with your batteries. While we were talking an order came to move up nearer tin at Gettysburg was the most fearful sound that ever pealed from the red throat of roaring war. Colonel Patton called my attention to the gallant bearing of Major Dearing, as he galloped, flag in hand, from gun to gun of his battalion and suggested that it would be safer for us to close up on the artillery; but I told him he mus

the road east of the Codori house, arming all the ridge from which Humphreys was dislodged the day before, at a distance of from nine hundred to thirteen hundred yards from the enemy's line. The batteries of Major Henry to the right of the orchard cross their fire with that of the rest of the line; those of Alexander are ranged above this position, at the summit of the slope running down to the Trostle house; on his left, and somewhat in the rear, is located the Washington Artillery, with Dearing's and Cabell's battalions. This artillery, thus placed ahead of the infantry, is, according to Lee's instruction, to batter the enemy's position which he proposes to attack. In the mean while, all the troops that are to participate in the attack take position back of the ridge, so that the Federals cannot see them distinctly. Wilcox has been drawn up in line of battle since daybreak, about one hundred and fifty yards west of the road, above the house of H. Spangler. Pickett plants himse
