cer on the field after Shields was hurt, was in command of the Federals. Anticipating Jackson's very transparent device, Kimball laid his plans to meet it. The Cedar Creek road leaves the turnpike at the toll-gate, and, running westerly, crosses the ridge within about a mile of Jackson's position. Tyler's Federal brigade, at 2 P. M., was at the junction of the Cedar Creek and Strasburg roads. At 3 P. M. it had crossed the ridge, and was moving rapidly along the crest and both faces to reach the battlefield, which it did at 3.30 P. M., just in time to encounter the infantry which Jackson was sending forward to turn the Federal right. Behind that growth ofly beaten towards Strasburg. His flight was not stopped until he had made six miles south of Newtown, whence on the next morning he moved to the south side of Cedar Creek, and thence gradually retired again to Mount Jackson.

M. Our course was directly for Winchester; the distance was eighteen miles. Fortunately for us, the day was cool and misty. We had cleared the town and reached Cedar Creek, about two miles out, when signs of excitement and panic were apparent. Frightened teamsters came thundering back towards Strasburg, urging their mules at a gal's brigade, Jackson brought up his guns and replied to Hatch's fire. After a short skirmish, a column of flame and smoke was seen arising from the bridge over Cedar Creek. The Zouaves d 'Afrique, having been attacked by the part of Jackson's force that had swept southward, had fired the bridge and retreated to Strasburg. Then Hnfirmed my fears of the numbers of the enemy; told me he had been set upon in strong force; that a portion of the rear of our train, such stores as were left at Cedar Creek, and such forces as had not haply escaped, had been captured. Hatch dwelt with much feeling upon the mistake made by Collins of the cavalry in charging upon th

Richmond Examiner of June 5, 1862. Among other captures the enemy claimed to have taken a large amount of baggage at Cedar Creek, with all the knapsacks of the Zouaves. The original reports of this retreat, my own among the number, attributed many cold-blooded atrocities to the enemy. In the excitement of such a retreat, and thus early in the war, it was not strange that we put faith in improbable stories. I have before me the account of one of the theatrical company, whom I met in flight at Strasburg, which, so far as it goes, may correct the earlier reports. He got safely to Winchester, slept through the f

). While our troops were forming in the manner indicated in the last chapter, General Jackson was silently advancing. His leading division of three brigades was commanded by General Ewell, our old antagonist at Winchester. General Early commanded the foremost brigade of this division, and was therefore the first of all the enemy's infantry to encounter our cavalry under Bayard. In the morning, at eleven o'clock, the enemy's artillery opened on our cavalry, before Roberts had crossed Cedar Creek with infantry; but Knapp's battery replied, and the enemy withdrew. After the main body of our infantry had crossed the creek and taken up the line designated, Bayard formed his line on a ridge in the plain that held the cornfield, and about two-thirds of a mile in advance of the infantry. In this position hetreceived for a time the enemy's fire from his field-guns, and then fell back, but in a few minutes advanced again to the ridge. As Early came up with his skirmishers he scoured

rd, and soon came where he and Pope were standing together in the road nearly two miles in rear of the wheat-field, and about one mile on the Culpeper side from Cedar Creek. General Pope had at last arrived on the field, and the following will explain how he happened there: The boom of artillery that echoed back to Culpeper d, in moving with my staff to select our position, I perceived that our cavalry, which previously had been in line between the woods I was ordered to occupy and Cedar Creek, had now passed through the woods, and were in line behind it on the Culpeper side, having fallen back before the approach of the enemy. As my orders from Popef the battle; or if it had, to swing his whole line backward on my position as on a pivot, and cover his left by the woods on the ridge, on the northern side of Cedar Creek (where Crawford was the evening before, when we were sent out to establish ourselves at Crawford's position), would have been Banks's true movement to repel suc
