. Major: I have the honor to report that on the morning of the 1st July, we moved from South Mountain, Pennsylvania, through Cashtown in tould have been. We remained halted at Greenwood all day of the first of July. At about ten o'clock at night, July 1st, a courier came to July 1st, a courier came to my camp and delivered to me the following, from General Longstreet's headquarters: headquarters, near Gettysburg, Pa., July 1st, 5:30 P. July 1st, 5:30 P. M., 1863. Colonel: The Commanding-General desires you to come on tonight as far as you can, without distressing your men and animals. Ewer of the 25th ultimo. with regard to Gen. Lee's battle order on the 1st and 2d of July at Gettysburg, was duly received. I did not know of intimated we would have passed by 10 o'clock the next day (the first of July), my division was accordingly marched from its camp and lined along the road in the order of march by 8 o'clock the 1st of July.

upying Cemetery Heights upon the afternoon of July 1st. Others confidently agree with Colonel Tays two brigades in the Federal front on the first of July; that it kept the Sixth Federal corps, soml and Hill not pushing their success on the 1st of July? I have always been one of those who regaruit of General Howard on the afternoon of the 1st July at Gettysburg, they would have driven him ove the corps (Fifth), and on the evening of the 1st July I marched through Hanover and along the road essary for me to know on the evening of the 1st of July what dispositions of my artillery to make fions from General Hill, on the night of the 1st of July, he told me that the orders were for the atcorps) reached the ground towards midnight of July 1st, leaving one brigade at Emmettsburg — with me was practically concentrated on the night of July 1st, and could have attacked, if necessary, at dabut 1,200 organized on the afternoon of the 1st of July, after their little difficulty with Ewell a[4 more...]

in a country where the stragglers found no safety, had much less than the Federals; there could be none in Stuart's cavalry after the passage of the Potomac, as every man who dropped off had to be reported lost and considered as missing. The straggling was always very large in the Union army; it was especially so in a friendly country, where it was easy for the men to drop out from the ranks and remain for a time behind. I see no reason to doubt General Doubleday's statement that on the 1st of July, the First corps, when it reached Seminary Ridge, after several days of hard marching, was for the time being reduced from 11,350 men present to 8,200 fighting men. Many of the stragglers joined the army before the end of the battle, but it is not a high estimate to reckon at 10,000 the total loss entailed, by straggling, upon different corps of the Army of the Potomac at the arrival of each on the battle-field. Let us reckon only 6,000 stragglers on the Union and 2,500 on the Southern s

mmander of General Lee's army will endorse these figures. Of cavalry, I think there was, in round numbers, 9,000. There were seven brigades, counting Imboden and Jenkins — an average of 1,300 to the brigade. The five with the army on the 31st May had an average of but 2,000, and Jenkins and Imboden had originally an average of but 1,500, showing an original average of, say, 1,800. This reduction in the cavalry is but a reasonable one, considering their service between the 31st May and 1st of July. The artillery I put at 4,500. The three arms of service then numbered as follows: Infantry, 53,500; cavalry, 9,000; artillery, 4,500. Total effective of all arms, 67,000. Against this let us put the minimum number, as claimed by General Meade, a little under 100,000 men. If the Count, however, persists in giving General Lee the maximum effective strength with which he commenced the campaign, say 74,000, in eq:lity and fairness he should put the Army of the Potorac at what its comma

egate of the infantry alone. My information upon this subject was taken from General Lee's own lips. He estimated his force to be, including the detachments that would join him on the march, a trifle over 70,000. On the 30th of June, or the 1st of July, he estimated his infantry at 52,000 bayonets. If Mr. Swinton received any information from me upon the subject he received this, for it was all that I had. Since I have read the report of the Adjutant-General of the Army of Northern Virginiant of this battle which need correction: The scout, upon whose information the head of our column was turned to the right, reported at Chambersburg on the night of the 28th of June. It is printed the 29th. Several orders that I issued on the 1st of July, and so dated, appear under the date of the 18th. The real strength of Pickett's division was 4,500 bayonets. It was printed at 5,500. In the paragraph where I stated that General Meade anticipated my attack of the 3d, and told General Hanc

Monday, June 29.--About 9 A. M. received orders to march back to Chambersbu'rg. Great surprise expressed. Marched 11 miles and camped 1 mile south of Stowstown. Tuesday, June 30.--Column moved at 5 A. M. Passed through Shippensburg, to Greenvillage, where we took left road to Fayetteville. Wednesday, July 1.--Column moved at 7 A. M. Passed through Fayetteville. On top of mountain heard rapid cannonading. Soon saw the smoke of the battle, and then of burning houses. Hurried to the; front, but the battle was over. Distance from our camp on Monday to Gettysburg, 35 miles. This was marched by the brigade on Tuesday and Wednesday. It may have been a greater distance; it was not less. Our camp on the night of the 30th must have been not far east or west of Greenwood. Thus it appears t

st financial exhibit which we have ever made. It is our purpose to exert every effort to increase the interest and value of our publications, and we feel assured that we can do so if our friends will continue to stand by us and help us. We contemplate various improvements in our monthly so soon as our subscription list will justify the extra expense, and we beg our friends everywhere to exert themselves to extend our circulation. If each subscriber would forward us a new one by the 1st of July, we would at once increase the number of pages in each issue and make other contemplated improvements. Shall we not have a number of earnest workers in this direction? Photographs or Engravings of leading Confederates are a very desirable part of our material. We wish to hand down to posterity the features of the men who made our glorious history, and we should be under special obligations to friends who can make additions to our collection. Mr. M.
