12. This was divided as follows: killed, 133; wounded, 779. A cavalry engagement, jocularly denominated by the Confederate troopers, the Buckland Races, occurred on the 18th. General Stuart, who was in front of Kilpatrick's division, received a note from General Fitzhugh Lee stating that he was moving to join his commander, and suggesting that Stuart with Hampton's division should retire in the direction of Warrenton, drawing the enemy after him. This being done, Lee was to come in from Auburn and attack in flank and rear while Stuart attacked in front. General Stuart's report tells the sequel: This plan proved highly successful. Kilpatrick followed me cautiously until I reached the point in question, when the sound of artillery toward Buckland indicating that Major-General Lee had arrived and commenced the attack, I pressed upon them suddenly and vigorously in front, with Gordon [North Carolina brigade] in the center and Young and Rosser on his flanks.

In September, 1863, he was promoted brigadier-general and assigned to command of the North Carolina cavalry brigade, with which he defeated the enemy at Bethsaida church October 10th, and at Culpeper Court House, and took a prominent part in the fight at Auburn, where Colonel Ruffin was killed and he was painfully wounded, but continued, by his brave example and marked ability, to control the field, and two days after commanded in a fight on Bull run. He led the center in the Buckland races, driving Kilpatrick before him, and during the Mine Run campaign took an active part, his horse being shot under him at Parker's store. In the memorable campaign of May, 1864, Gordon's outposts were the first to meet the enemy as he crossed the Rapidan, and h

The opponents of the Government at the North made the most of the situation for political purposes. The elections were approaching, and a Cabinet council was held. It was necessary, Seward said, to throw something overboard in order to save the ship, and Emancipation was to be the Jonah. He was selected, he told me, to make the sacrifice, and proceeded to Auburn, where he delivered the speech which many will remember, re-opening the whole question of slavery and Emancipation, when the States should return to the Union. When the insurgents, he said, shall have disbanded their armies and laid down their arms, the war will instantly cease; and all the war measures then existing, including those which affect slavery, will cease also; and all the moral, economical, and political questions, as well questions affecting slavery as others, which shall then

He was the right-hand man of Jackson, in his corps, and the right-hand man of Lee, after Jackson had fallen, and he enjoyed the abiding confidence of both. He was successively a colonel, a brigadier-general, a major-general and a lieutenant-general, each promotion c
