Wm. Jones, Secretary Southern Historical Society: Dear Sir — In the interest of truth, and for the vindication of a brigade that captured and held for twelve (12) hours a position in rear and not four hundred (400) yards from the summit of Cemetery Hill, we desire to place side by side with that of General O. O. Howard our account of the fighting on the Federal right at Gettysburg. The simple facts, as we have narrated them, can be substantiated by a number of soldiers who were actively enged behind some large boulders of rock (the position they had just charged from), and were forced to retire, from the losses incurred in their charge against, and not before any charge of the enemy, to Rock creek, several hundred yards to the rear, where, posted as a heavy skirmish line, they continued the contest till night. On Cemetery Hill art has erected a beautiful monument in memory of the victors, but nature, in the Everlasting hills, more grandly attests the valor of the vanquished.

This attack was accompanied, preceded, and succeeded by the fiercest and grandest cannonade I have ever witnessed. My troops lay about half way between the artillery of the Second corps, and that of the enemy on Cemetery Hill, and directly under the line of fire of fully one hundred guns; a most trying position even when the opposing artillerists confined their attention to each other, and one which became fearfully so, when both parties, as they did at short intervals, dropped shells in their midst, whilst the sharpshooters were constant and skillful in their attentions. They underwent this terrible trial, not only without murmuring or faltering, but with great cheerfulness, and with the utmost coolness.

Confederatered himself that the Confederates had no second line on Cemetery Hill, as he had formerly supposed and as Duane had positivel. Ledlie was to push through the breach straight to Cemetery Hill. Wilcox was to follow, and, after passing the breachro's Negro Division, should Ledlie effect a lodgment on Cemetery Hill, was to push beyond that point and immediately assault friendly shelter of its crumbling sides. Yonder lies Cemetery Hill in plain view, naked of men, Statement of Captain F.e barred the road to Petersburg; for, let me repeat, Cemetery Hill was naked of men. The officers of one battery, indeed, is true, in obedience to orders to advance straight for Cemetery Hill, had during this time attempted several charges from hiis moment that there was filing into the ravine between Cemetery Hill and the drunken battalions of Ferrero, a stern array of
