Southern Historical Society Papers, Volume 9. (ed. Reverend J. William Jones), The courage of the Confederate soldier. (search)
g toast: The Confederate dead. Their courage was inspired by their convictions of right and their love of country. He said: Courage is not peculiar to man. The lion has it; the eagle has it; the serpent has it. In a very limited degree even the worm and the insect have it. Of mere brute courage the savage has more than the civilized man; the drunken man more than the sober man; and the villain more than the virtuous man. Of this courage the army of Grant had more than the army of Lee. A man who has much of it fights well anywhere. It is a matter of small consequence to him under which flag he fights. In his feelings he knows no country — no East, no West, no North, no South. His voice is simply for war — war anywhere — war for any cause. What did the average immigrant soldier know about States rights? What did he know of the history of the controversy which culminated in war? About all he knew, or cared to know was, that he should fight mit Seigle, and receive ra<

Seymour, who served on General Hays's staff — the only connection Colonel Palfrey having with it being to furnish copies of the letters of Generals Lee and Cooper. We regret that we were led into this mistake by the friend who sent us the paper. We are always careful to have a responsible name attached to everything we publish, and this is the first instance in which we have gotten the wr regretted our inability to accept a kind invitation to be present on the occasion.

w the fortunes of the Army of Northern Virginia, from Harper's Ferry, in 1861, to Appomattox Court-house, in 1865. Entering the service as high private in the rear rank, and afterward acting as chaplain in both Stonewall Jackson's and A. P. Hill's corps, I had some peculiar facilities for seeing and knowing what occurred. Personally acquainted with Robert E. Lee, J. E. Johnston, Beaureguard, Jackson, Stuart, Ewell, A. P. Hill, Early, Edward Johnson, Rodes, Pender, Heth, Wilcox, Hampton, Fitzhugh Lee, W. H. F. Lee, John B. Gordon, Pegram, J. A. Walker, and a large number of others of our leading officers, I at the same time made it my duty to know thoroughly the unknown private of the rank and file. I marched with him along the weary road; I bivouaced with him in the pelting storm; I shared with him the rough delights of the camp; I joined with him in those delightful services which proved that Jesus was often in the army with a power rarely witnessed at home. I went with him into t

g authentic touching this matter in your next issue, I am, sir, Yours, very truly, John D. Billings, Historian, and former member of Tenth Massachusetts Battery, Second Army corps, Army of Potomac. The failure of General Hooker to cut Jackson's column when moving to his rear at Chancellorsville has been much discussed. The following letter will throw some light on an interesting episode of that great movement: San Francisco, 26th January, 1881, 439 California Street. General Fitzhugh Lee: Dear General,--Accident some time ago placed me in poseession of a copy of your address of October 29th, 1879, which you ought to have sent me. I take the liberty of calling your attention to the part acted by Captain Moore, of the Fourteenth Tennessee, which I think you would have mentioned, had you known, or not forgotten it. When the ordnance train of Hill's division was approaching Catherine Furnace (where the road turns abruptly to the left and down hill) the confusion ahe

fficial reports in Taylor's Four years with General Lee, and General Fitzhugh Lee's address before less consumption. Want of forage compelled General Lee to send most of his cavalry to the rear to Confederate rear, do all the damage possible to Lee's depots, and the railroads on which he dependee threatened the Confederate lines in front. Lee's situation was one of great difficulty and dan ten miles to meet him since the night before. Lee's attack was vigorous, but Hooker knew well his himself, became possessed with the notion that Lee was retreating, and irrational as this suppositdgwick's position invited another bold attack.
