s after this battle, when he had received his mortal wound at Spotsylvania Courthouse, my heart was melted while shaking, in our last good-bye, the poor fellows hand, hot with the lever that I knew must and which did in a few hours burn out his noble life.
To the foregoing the following letter from Major Andrew Dunn, of Petersburg, may be added:
Petersburg, Va., July 1, 1892. Mr. George S. Bernard:
dear Sir—you have requested me to give you my recollection of the wounding of General Longstreet in the Battle of the Wilderness.
As a member of his staff—I was one of his aidede-camp, I was within a few feet of him at the time he was wounded.
We were on our horses on the plank-road.
A few minutes previously I had suggested to him that he was exposing himself very much, I thought.
That is our businees, was his reply, which silenced me. When the volley, a shot from which wounded him, was fired, he fell from his horse heavily to the ground, and I thought he had been killed.
