At Louisa Courthouse, a few days after, I am satisfied we saved the division from defeat, and later on the evening of the same day, at Trevillian's, held the key to our position until Fitz Lee could make his flank movement, which resulted in a victory over Sheridan and his cavalry corps. Twenty-four men of First Squadron, Companys D and K (Company K were from Maryland) at Mrs. Stewart's Tavern, Little River Turnpike, above Germantown, the morning after the second battle of Manassas, captured one captain, one lieutenant and fifty-four privates of the Fifth Regulars, U. S. A., a company commanded by General Fitz Lee before he resigned and joined his mother State. In the whole of the campaign, from the Rappahannock to the James, for about sixty days (for it lasted longer with the cavalry than with the infantry), we had no rest. The horses, half fed and moving day and night, were continually breaking down. As a conseque

es, and commanding officer of the second company, was one of the handsomest soldiers in the parade. Governor McKinney and Mayor Ellyson, who occupied one of the two carriages which led the procession, were loudly cheered on all sides, and General Fitz Lee was given an almost constant ovation. Quite a bevy of girls cheered the soldiers on their way out to the unveiling from the switch-back in the Exposition grounds. The Richmond Light infantry Blues entertained the Washington and Newportn they received in this city. The visitors from Virginia's sister State reached the city on a special car at 11 in the morning and left at 6 in the afternoon.

He it was, it is said, who placed General Jackson in the position, the stern holding of which gained for him the famed soubriquet of Stonewall. He planned the fortifications of Centreville and other points, and made, it is said, the most correct map of the battlefield of Manassas extant. Accompanying General Beauregard to the West, he planned the fortification of Island No.10, Fort Hilton, and Vicksburg. He also accompanied a reconnoit
