nd's extreme rear guard all night and all day for days together, from Covington to Buchanan in June, 1864, when General Hunter advanced on Lynchburg, Va. When Chambersburg, Pa. was burnt in 1864, this squadron acted as General McCausland's extreme rear guard when McCausland left the burning city. From Five Forks, Va., near Petersburg, it was again often in the rear of Beale's Brigade (to which it had been transferred) in Lee's retreat to Appomattox. On the morning of the surrender, 9th April, 1865, this squadron was with its regiment, the 14th Virginia Cavalry, in the last charge made by that regiment under command of Captain E. E. Bouldin.

Crushed to the earth, the righteousness of the cause for which they fought so grandly, remains undimmed, their achievements increasingly command the admiration of the world. Their fate invests only with incense their heroism and sublime sacrifices. May the blood of these martyrs be as that of those of the Cross who died at the stake for conscience sake, and may it be as the seed of life and noble endeavor, with just patriotic fruitage, to my comrades of this Ca

I enclose two communications on the subject, the one from Bushrod Rust, formerly of Compatement of all Virginia soldiers who were killed and wounded within those dates-April 2d to April 9th, 1865. I have had collected a number of names which might have been forgotten or lost sight of, lry, in April, 1862, and served his country well up to the time of his death, at Appomattox, April 9, 1865. He had participated in many hard fought engagements before the final campaign from Five hich his command was engaged, including the hard fight at High Bridge. At Appomattax, Sunday, April 9, 1865, General Gordon was ordered to force a passage through the Federal lines, and in the mid, and I always heard that he was killed in the last cavalry charge at Appomattox Courthouse, April 9, 1865. I was Captain J. B. Updike's first lieutenant, and succeeded him in command of the compa
