M.--Sedgwick's weary corps having just arrived-Sykes was orived from Chambersburg an hour or two before Sedgwick came up on our side, a division from Ewell, aoubt that the enemy were in full retreat; and Sedgwick's (6th) corps was ordered July 5, 11 A. M.into a general engagement; I will send for Gen. Sedgwick, and ask permission to hold that position ou. I accordingly sent a staff officer to Gen. Sedgwick, with a request that I might go up at onceelf between the enemy and his resources. But Sedgwick soon reported July 6. that the main body oe army was impelled down the Middletown road; Sedgwick being ordered to move the most of his commandksburg; but Halleck negatived the project; so Sedgwick, with the 6th and 5th corps, was sent forward[14 more...]

because the Confederate forces did not renew the battle on Sunday, and fell back to their camps on Monday. General Sumner stated to the committee on the conduct of the war, that he had, in the battle of Fair Oaks, five or six thousand men in Sedgwick's division, part of Couch's, and a battery, and that, after the firing had continued some time, six regiments which he had in hand on the left of the battery charged directly into the woods; the enemy then fled, and the battle was over for that umner's corps. General Sumner's extravagant statement, that six of his regiments charged and put to flight Smith's whole division, needs no comment. His estimate of his force on Saturday is not more accurate. According to it, there were in Sedgwick's division, which constituted half of his corps, less than five thousand men; consequently, his corps must have had in it less than ten thousand; and McClellan's army, of which that corps was a fifth, less than fifty thousand. As that army numb
. At daylight on the morning of the 24th tents were struck, wagons packed, and the whole column ordered under arms. The Eleventh Ohio had moved three miles on the march last evening, which placed them in the advance. The line of wagons was then moved up, followed by the artillery under the command of Captain Cotter; then, followed by the Twenty-first Ohio, under command of Lieutenant Colonel Nibling, the whole covered with the First and Second Kentucky, under Colonel Enyart and Acting-Colonel Sedgwick. The view of this whole column in line and on its march was most splendid. Every thing being in line, the column was all in motion at eight o'clock A. M. The river fleet, with six companies of the Twelfth Ohio, under the immediate command of Major Hines, started up the river at nine o'clock A. M. The Economy, Commodore Beltzhoover's flag-ship of the fleet, led the van, provided with one piece of artillery, placed upon the bow to answer any summons from the shore. The other four

k as it had been reported, I desired that Lee might be detained from sending any part of his army to Richmond, and asked that the Army of the Potomac lying in front of Lee might make a movement upon him as a feint. General Meade being sick, General Sedgwick, who was in command, was ordered to co-operate with me. But after considerable correspondence he telegraphed that he could not get ready in time. On the 4th of March I received notice that General Kilpatrick had started, with a cavalry fong substantially the same position that they had on the evening of the 5th. After dark, the enemy made a feeble attempt to turn our right flank, capturing several hundred prisoners and creating considerable confusion. But the promptness of General Sedgwick, who was personally present and commanded that part of our line, soon re-formed it and restored order. On the morning of the 7th, reconnoissances showed that the enemy had fallen behind his intrenched lines, with pickets to the front, cover

day morning, but the lacking regiments were gradually brought into the rear. To save future delay I give here a list of his troops, and of Lew. Wallace's, engaged: Brig.-Gen. Nelson's division--First brigade, Col. Ammon, Twenty-fourth Ohio, commanding--Thirty-sixth Indiana, Col. Gross; Sixth Ohio, Lieut.--Colonel Anderson; Twenty-fourth Ohio, Lieut.-Col. Fred. C. Jones.

rst, Second, and Third corps, under command of Major-General French, and on the right, at Rappahanock Ford, by the Fifth and Sixth corps, under command of Major-General Sedgwick. In this corps, Brigadier-General Wright place, had command of the corps in Sedgwick's place, while General Russell assumed the command of the First diviSedgwick's place, while General Russell assumed the command of the First division, vacated by General Wright. At daybreak, on the morning of the seventh instant, this corps left its pleasant camps in and around Warrenton, and moved rapidly on toward Rappahanock Station, this division leading the corps, while this brigade had the advance in the division. After marching about six miles, we arrived at Fayy upon the recent successful passage of the Rappahannock in the face of the enemy, compelling him to withdraw to his intrenchments behind the Rapidan. To Major-General Sedgwick and the officers and men of the Fifth and Sixth corps participating in the attack, particularly to the storming party under Brigadier-General Russell, his
the upper Rappahannock, toward Richmond, to destroy the enemy's communications, while General Hooker, with his main army, crossed the Rappahannock and the Rapidan above their junction, and took position at Chancellorsville, at the same time General Sedgwick crossed near Fredericksburgh, and stormed and carried the heights. A severe battle took place on the second and third of May, and on the fifth our army was again withdrawn to the north side of the river. For want of official data, I am unded, and eight hundred and eighty-five missing. The enemy's loss is not known, but must have been heavy, as we captured many prisoners. Troops sent out from Harper's Ferry, forced him to immediately retreat. On the seventh of November, Generals Sedgwick and French attacked the enemy at Rappahannock Station and Kelly's Ford, capturing several redoubts, four guns, and eight battle-flags, and about two thousand prisoners. Our loss in killed and wounded was three hundred and seventy. The enem
