George H. Gordon, From Brook Farm to Cedar Mountain, Chapter 3: through Harper's Ferry to Winchester—The Valley of the Shenandoah. (search)
neral Jackson, as our columns approached the town from the north and east, have, since his death, been given to the world. This noted commander was moved with doubts and perplexities. Now he was ready to hazard everything to make good his promise to the people of Winchester that the Yankees should not enter their town; and then, more prudent considerations prevailing, he would resolve to retire, only again to reconsider, with renewed agitation. Life of General (Stonewall) Jackson, by Esten Cooke, p. 106. On the night of the eleventh of March Jackson entered the house of a Rev. Mr. Graham, of Winchester, with whose family he was intimate. Here he called for a Bible, read aloud, and prayed with the family. Then suddenly rising, he said, I will never leave Winchester without a fight! never, never! He stood looking at his astonished auditors a moment, and then, his excitement disappearing, his sword was driven back with a ringing clash into its scabbard,1 and in tones of pro

nchester, and at Strasburg, we had heard extravagant stories of the great resistance we were to meet. It was always at some point farther on. At New Market we heard that Jackson had left the valley. What this signified we found out afterwards; but of what had transpired one may well imagine our feelings in reading that Jackson then crept along in the days succeeding Kernstown, like a wounded wolf, but turning every moment to snap at his pursuers, and offer battle if they pressed on him. Cooke's Life of Stonewall Jackson, p. 126. Though the valley from Strasburg had at every step developed new beauties, the scene at New Market was one of the most lovely I had seen. Such rich slopes and green fields, magnificent vales and grand mountains, ever in sight as we followed the North Fork of the Shenandoah,--they were not only entirely beyond my descriptive powers, but were enough to transport me with ecstasy. At New Market we found peach-trees that had been in bloom since the ten

dy just before my arrival. General Jackson had hoped to seize those hills before daylight warned us of his presence; Cooke's Life of Jackson, p. 149. but if the detention of the previous day did not show the futility of such a wish, the strong spite of the missiles and crashing stones around them, the line of sharp-shooters still gallantly held their position. --Cooke's Life of Jackson, p. 149. The battery upon which Dabney says Carpenter and Cutshaw also kept up so spirited a contestbattery, which alone, near the Strasburg pike and to my left, formed the centre of our line of battle. The battery which Cooke says began to thunder on Jackson's left with a dangerous enfilading fire, was my battery of Parrotts. Turning now to even ordinary ability would have done, under similar circumstances? Feeling the necessity of defending him, Dabney or Cooke, or both of them, aver that General Jackson ordered General Steuart to follow with his cavalry and capture us, even as Fl

ll's Commanded by Garnett. brigade had been thrown, helpless and confused, into a disordered mass, over which, with cries of exultation, our troops poured, while field and woods were filled with clamor and horrid rout,--poured like an all-destroying torrent, until the left of Jackson's line was turned and its rear gained. Then, while the left of Taliaferro's brigade gave way, Geary's blows upon its right and upon the left of Early began to tell. Almost the language used by Dabney and Cooke in their histories. As Campbell had been overthrown, so next was Taliaferro; and then came the left of Early's brigade, which, first wavering, then fell back, until on both sides of the road a vast irruption had been made, which involved the whole of the enemy's line even as far towards the right as one half of the latter brigade. That the enemy's lines were thus forced back by the regiments of Crawford's brigade alone, as claimed by Major Gould in the History of the First, Tenth, and Twe
