Southern Historical Society Papers, Volume 8. (ed. Reverend J. William Jones), Explosive or poisoned musket or rifle balls — were they authorized and used by the Confederate States army, or by the United States army during the Civil War?--a slander refuted. (search)
. I purpose in this paper to examine the statement of the author of this Pictorial History, and to show, by indisputable proof, its recklessness and its falsity. In the above quotation, he states that he had picked up, on the battlefield of Gettysburg, an explosive and a poisoned ball. These, he adds, were sent by the Confederates. Whether any were ever used by the Nationals, the writer is not informed. I do not desire to be severe beyond justice; but it does seem that as no one ventured st the Confederates of having used explosive and poisoned balls, has been made before, and often repeated since, it has never been supported by one grain of proof. How did this author ascertain that the balls he picked up on the battlefield of Gettysburg were sent by the Confederates? How did he learn that one was an explosive and the other a poisoned projectile? Did he test the explosive power of the one and the poisonous character of the other? He gives no evidence of having done so, and a

e was formed into line of battle about. one o'clock P. M., July 1st, 1863, in front of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. We occupied the left of Major-General Rodes' division. The enemy's cavalry picket met the force on our right, attacked and routed him, pursuing him across the plain in front of Gettysburg; but few of this force escaped us. We then moved towards the Theological College, to the right of Gettysburg, where the brigades of Generals Daniel, Ramseur, Iverson and Colonel O'Neal were engaged with the enemy. As we advanced towards the enemy — our position at that time being on his right conduct and gallantry of each of these officers on the march and during the engagement around Gettysburg is worthy of emulation. The company officers and men all did their duty nobly. To Captain tle, I sent a request back for our batteries, stationed on the hill near the pike leading from Gettysburg to Fairfield, to shell some houses in my front for the purpose of dislodging the enemy's sharp

fied and confirmed by the judgment of so able a critic, when he says: Unquestionably, one of the most attractive events in the history of modern war, is Jackson's Valley campaign of 1862. While many episodes of war history so soon as brought to light, and thus divested of their legendary character, lose in interest and what may be called poetic attractiveness, this campaign of the celebrated Rebel General, conducted with such extraordinary skill, gains in interest in exact proportion to the development of our knowledge of the different elements of its skillful structure. This is but another of the many instances in which Major Scheibert has sought to put us right on the record before his people, and we owe him a debt of gratitude for his able vindication of the truth of our history. He has recently translated from our Papers Stuart's report of Gettysburg, and has written a graceful and appreciative criticism of the work of our Society, which we will publish in our next number.

863, when it became apparent that the army of General Lee was in quiet and undisturbed retreat from its position before Gettysburg, I found myself in the midst of three or four hundred men of the brigade in which I served, who were too severely woundColonel of the regiment in which I served, Colonel Hugh R. Miller, was lying mortally wounded at a private residence in Gettysburg, and had expressed a desire to see me. I reached his bedside just in time to receive his dying expression of his faith embalmer were secured, and the body skilfully embalmed and inclosed in a metallic case.

e 24th, when we marched upon Chambersburg, reaching that place about the middle of the day. At twelve o'clock at night I received orders to move with my brigade to Shippensburg, as General Jenkins was threatened by the enemy. I commenced the march about one o'clock and arrived there about 5 A. M., and relieved General Jenkins in command. On the 26th the remainder of the division came up. On the following day we marched upon Carlisle, where we remained until the 30th, when we marched upon Gettysburg by way of Heidlersburg, and arrived within two and a half miles of the town about 12 M. At this time I received orders to turn to the right and follow the trail of the troops that had preceded me. After moving some three-fourths of a mile, I received orders to form my brigade in line about two hundred yards in rear of General Iverson, my left in rear of his right wing, with instructions to protect the right of the division and to support Iverson's right. I was also informed that Colonel

Hunter, Assistant Adjutant-General, Johnson's Division: Captaint Adjutant-General: I have the honor to report that upon arriving in the vicinity of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, where a fight was progressing between the corps of Lieutenant-General A. P. Hill and t. Rodes' division, was ordered by him to form line of battle and advance towards the firing at Gettysburg. This advance brought my brigade across a wooded height over-looking the plain and the town of Gettysburg. General Rodes here took upon himself the direction of the brigade and moved it by the right flank, changing at the same time the direction of the line of battle. Masses of the enemy bhis brigade and act in concert with him, and we formed on the street facing the heights beyond Gettysburg occupied by the enemy, where we remained till the night of July 2d, when I was informed by Gen

Captain Hunter, Acting Assistant Adjutant-General: Captain — In obedience to circular from division headquarters, I have the honor recrossed the Potomac: On the evening of the 1st July the brigade, with the rest of the division, arrived at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, and after nightfall took position on the southeast side of the town, near the Hanover road, and on the extreme re drawn off with the rest of the division, and at daylight were again formed in line of battle on the heights south of Gettysburg, where we remained all day and until about eleven o'clock, when we marched with the division in the direction of Fairfi.

y that he had received the published copy of the report and that it was substantially correct. 3. Colonel Charles Marshall, General Lee's Military Secretary, stated that he had lent Mr. Swinton the original rough draft of the report from which a copy had been made for General Lee, and which was the same as that published in the Historical Magazine. 4. The copy from which we printed was a Ms. found among the papers of Michael Kelly, who was a clerk in General Cooper's office, and was identical with the copy printed in the Historical Magazine (and afterwards reprinted in the Southern Magazine, Baltimore, for August 1872). except that it corrected several verbal errors, and added several paragraphs at the close in reference to the conduct of our officers and men and our captures at Gettysburg. Our Ms. is evidently a copy of the finally corrected report of General Lee, and its authenticity seems to us beyond all doubt. We have not space, nor is it necessary, to make any comment.

port of the operations of the troops under my command near the city of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. On Wednesday, July 1, 1863, after a march of twelve or fourteen miarrived with my brigade on the Heidlersburg road, within a mile and a half of Gettysburg. At this point I discovered that a space in the division line of battle haoad, which here runs from east to west, just skirting the edge of the city of Gettysburg. In my progress to this position the fire to which my command was subjected I halted. After reforming my line of battle, I advanced through the city of Gettysburg, clearing it of the enemy and taking prisoners at every turn.

w, rose at his bugle blast, and, though chilled with cold and pinched by hunger, rushed headlong upon the half awakened and confounded divisions of Federal infantry--knew and loved him. His fame is safe in their keeping. He has been blamed for Gettysburg, and yet, with the approval of the Commanding-General, he had gone on an expedition almost unparallelled for the endurance of himself and his command. They crossed the Potomac, marched nearly three days and nights without stopping, except for nearly in collision with a superior force, when his men and horses were nearly worn out for want of rest, compelling him to make a considerable detour, he would have reached our army before the battle on the day preceding the great struggle at Gettysburg. Our cavalry was always made the scapegoat for the disasters that occurred, yet the official statements will show that they rendered most signal service to the army and the country; and that from the constant wear and tear of being always in
