I think will establish the fact beyond a doubt. Julian M. Ruffin. Old Church, Va., March 30, 1896. The extract referred to above follows: Who fired the first gun at Sumter. (letter from General Stephen D. Lee.) I wish to correct an error which has almost passed into an historical fact. It is this: That Edmund Ruffin, of Virginia, did not fire the first gun at Fort Sumter, but that Captain George S. James, of South Carolina, afterward killed when a lieutenant-colonel at Boonesboro, Md., did fire it. The writer was a captain of a South Carolina army at the time, and an aide-de-camp on the staff of General Beauregard. He now has before him a diary written at the time, and there can be no mistake as to the fact. The summon for the surrender or evacuation was carried by Colonel Chestnut, of South Carolina, and Captain S. D. Lee. They arrived at Sumter at 2:20 P. M., April 11th. Major Anderson declined to surrender, but remarked he would be starved out in a few

s. At the second battle of Manassas, they were engaged in carrying General Jackson's orders to and fro between the various commanders of the troops in action, thus witnessing and bearing their part in that famous struggle, when a number of the corps were seriously wounded and several killed. Two privates of the Black Horse offered their beautiful chargers to Generals Lee and Jackson when they marched into Maryland. In the first Maryland campaign, before General Jackson's corps entered Boonesboro, he sent a squad of the Black Horse, commanded by Lieutenant A. D. Payne, through the town to picket the approaches from the opposite direction. Lieutenant Payne had nineteen men and the charge was against twenty times their number, but General Jackson was saved from capture. It was a desperate charge and the enemy was deceived and routed. Payne remarked to his men: We must relieve our general at all hazards. I rely upon your courage to save him. In the winter of 1862-‘63, the Black

ter department; E. F. Weaver, transferred to the quartermaster department; C. C. Yager, transferrred to the commissary department. The original name of this company was The Richardson Guards, named in honor of the then Adjutant-General of the State. I am largely indebted to Lieutenant William F. Harrison, now a prosperous merchant at Madison Courthouse, Va., for assistance in getting up this roll of the old company. The original officers of the company were transferred to other branches of the service. Lieutenant N. W. Crisler was appointed quartermaster of Kemper's Brigade, with rank of major. note—Captain William O. Fry, Lieutenant T. V. Fry, and Lieutenant George N. Thrift were each wounded several times, but died since the war. First Sergeant James Watson was killed at Boonsboro, Md. Second Sergeant W. B. Carpenter was killed near Drewry's Bluff. Most of those marked dead died from wounds. Nearly every man who remained with the company was wounded one or more times
