fore 2 P. M. I immediately signalled the information to General Lee and General Ewell, and ordered my other brigades, then engaged in constructing huts for quartvery heavy force. For fear that the information by signal had not reached General Ewell, as I understood he was coming up towards Brandy Station, I sent my Adjutanserious that night, concluded to retire, leaving with me two dispatches for General Ewell. A short time before we saw the last firing, I had sent my Inspector Geand just as I was preparing to send off the two dispatches left with me for General Ewell, Major Hale returned and informed me that when he saw General Hays the ene, the 8th, we formed a line of battle, a mile or two in rear of Brandy Station, Ewell's corps occupying the right, with its left, my division, resting on the road tont until the last of the month.

ce at Locust Grove. During the engagement one of Rodes' brigades was taken from his left and sent to Johnson's assistance, but before it arrived the action had closed. Johnson's division did not then exceed 4,000 men, if it reached that number. The two corps moving against it numbered not less than 30,000 men, though French's corps, the 3rd, was the only one which became actually engaged. This affair satisfied me that the enemy's whole army was in the immediate neighborhood, and as Ewell's corps, under my command, was then in a most unfavorable position, I determined to fall back across Mine Run about two miles in our rear, where I had observed a good position as I passed on. Accordingly after Johnson's fight was over, and all his wounded and dead had been collected as far as practicable, in the darkness, the divisions were withdrawn across Mine Run, my own and Rodes' on the stone pike, and Johnson's on the road to Zoar Church. Division commanders were directed to place th

About the middle of December a force of cavalry and infantry moved from New Creek on the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad up the south branch of the Potomac, under General Averill of the Federal Army, apparently threatening Staunton in the Valley, while at the same time another foleft to picket down the valley. Major Gilmor subsequently made a raid down the valley, and captured a train on the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad. After the troops had been located, in company with Captain Hotchkiss, topographical engineer for Ewell's corps, I made a reconnoissance of the country and mountain passes west of Staunton and extending across Jackson's River to the mountains beyond, and selected a line to be fortified so as to prevent raids. Captain Hotchkiss made a sketch of thi

General Ewell concurred with me in this opinion, and the impolicy of of the heavy fighting on that flank, at my suggestion, General Ewell ordered the movement which Gordon had proposed.
