terspersed brief additions furnished by one of the company who was through all the hardships of the period, and knew whereof he spoke: Last muster was at White Oak swamp, on the 30th June, 1862. [There the battery had been engaged.] On the 1st of July, engaged [again] at Malvern Hill, where [John M. Brown] was killed [a projectile from the enemy's gun passed through a tree and took off his head; one man, Francis T. Herndon, was mortally wounded], John Doran and two others severely, and fivearlisle, Pa., where it remained till 28th; 29th, ten miles toward Shippensburg; 30th, nine miles to the Baltimore pike leading to Gettysburg. [At a camp near Blue Run Church, on the 31st August, the sketch of movements is resumed as follows:] July 1st, marched twenty miles to Gettysburg; 2d and 3d, engaged in battle—lost fourteen men wounded and seven horses killed; 4th, fell back three miles with rest of the army; 5th, eight miles to Fairfield; 6th, crossed the mountain and marched twenty mi

on train. Not being able to learn exactly where the Confederate army was, General Stuart proceeded as far north as Carlisle. It was not until the night of the 1st of July that he was informed that General Lee's army was at Gettysburg, and had been engaged that day with the enemy's advance. He reached Gettysburg on the 2d of Julying, following Hill. The army moved very slowly, and there would have been no difficulty whatever in having the whole of it at Gettysburg by the morning of the 1st of July had we been aware of the movements of the enemy on the other side of the mountains. You will thus see that the movement to Gettysburg was the result of the w absence of the cavalry, his own army marching slowly eastward from Chambersburg, and southward from Carlisle, came unexpectedly on the Federal advance on the 1st day of July, a considerable part of the Confederate army having not yet reached the field of battle. How it was brought about. I do not propose to enter into the de

rginia Battalion. Pender's Division—Scales' Brigade—Thirteenth, Sixteenth, Twenty-second, Thirty-fourth, and Thirty-ninth North Carolina Regiments Lane's Brigade—Seventh, Eighteenth, Twenty-eighth, Thirty-third and Thirty-seventh North Carolina Regiments. Archer's was made the directing brigade of the line of battle. Beyond the Stone wall. All these troops, numbering not more than 14,000, had, with the exception of Pickett's Division, been heavily engaged in the battle of the first of July. Brockenbrough's and Davis's Brigades, with absolutely no supports on the left or rear, unable to stand the tempest of shot and shell, gave way first. Pettigrew's Brigade dashed on, and, when within a short distance of the stone wall, a flanking column on the left poured in a destructive fire of musketry, causing what was left of the brigade to fall back. Archer's Brigade reached nearly, if not quite, the stone wall. From this point they retired to their former position on Seminary R<

was at Cashtown on the evening of July 30th. General Lee, with Longstreet, was still some distance west of the mountain. Every division of his army—infantry, cavalry, and artillery—was on the march, and converging on Cashtown on the morning of July 1st. They could all have reached there by night, or in supporting distance. On the evening before (30th), Hill and Heth heard that a body of the enemy had just occupied Gettysburg. Early on the morning of July 1st, Hill, with Heth's and Pender's July 1st, Hill, with Heth's and Pender's Divisions, started down without orders to attack them. Before reaching Gettysburg they met Buford's Cavalry on the pike. Buford held them in check until Reynolds, who had camped some six miles off with two corps, hearing the firing, came to his support. Heth first put two brigades into the fight that were soon knocked to pieces; Archer and most of his brigade were captured. Heth says: Archer and Davis were now directed to advance, the object being to feel the enemy and to determine in what f

oint General Ewell was also instructed to march from Carlisle. * * * Respectfully submitted, R. E. Lee, General. Moving in unison. This formal statement by General Lee made at the time, together with various orders and movements detailed in the foregoing, all compiled from official and perfectly reliable sources, determine conclusively that all the divisions of the Confederate army were moving in unison, like a huge machine, toward a common centre, and with a common object, propelled by the comprehensive mind of its commanding general, who had and was following out a definite plan of operations, evolved as early as June 28th, when he first received information that the Union army had crossed the Potomac and was advancing, and were not set in motion by a temporary impulse growing out of a trivial raid for shoes at Gettysburg on the morning of July 1st. That was merely an incident in the concerted movement of a great army. Leslie J. Perry. Washington, December 1, 1895.

lry, and artillery—would have been concentrated at Cashtown, or in supporting distance, if this rash movement on Gettysburg had not precipitated a battle. A British officer— Colonel Freemantle—was present as a spectator, and spent the night of July 1st at General Lonstreet's headquarters. In his diary he says: I have the best reason for supposing that the fight came off prematurely, and that neither Lee nor Longstreet intended that it should have begun that day. I also think that their plans were deranged by the events of the 1st. The record shows who is responsible for the loss of the campaign, and that it was not Stuart. There were no orders to make a reconnoissance on July 1st, and no necessity for making one. The success of the first day, due to the accident of Ewell's arrival on the field when he was not expected, was a misfortune to the Southern army. It would have been far better if Ewell had let Hill and Heth be beaten. They had put the Confederates in the condit<
