in men and horse to such an extent that on the second of October General Lee instructed General Wm. N. Pendleton to submit a plan for reorgandisgrace themselves; that I would seek a personal interview with General Lee to see if he would revoke it. I immediately rode to his headquarrs, and after dismounting, met Colonel Chilton, and asked him if General Lee was in? He said yes, and just at that time General Lee came outGeneral Lee came out of his tent. I walked up to him with his order in my hand, saluted him which he returned, then introduced myself as Captain Thompson, of tnd I saw it was useless to say more on that question, so I said: General Lee, I wish to shake your hand He gave me a warm handshake, and we pr my military service in further detail. I was in Danville when General Lee surrendered, went in company with Mr. J. H. Sands, of Richmond, uniform. Since the day of parole, I have always endeavored to follow the advice of General Lee, and be a good citizen of the United States.

ads, and then the dove of peace flew from the North, bringing home the emblems of war, which had waved in our comrades' hands on many bloody fields of honor, and some had fallen from the dead hands of our color bearers, to go into the forum for the victor's trophies. What Southern soldier will not respond to these beautiful tokens of peace out of the fullness of heart? All hail. Peace in the hearts of Northmen! All honor! for the true Southern souls which follow the white plumes of Fitz Lee, Gordon and Wheeler into the realms of charity and forgiveness! All, glory! to the men of the South and the North who strive onward with one mind for the honor and safety of the republic! M. W. Allen, Wilson B. Lynch, John H. Thompson and other soldiers of the Portsmouth Light Artillery, living and dead, whose names are inscribed on this shaft, are the types of manhood who welcome peace. Although this Union was made indissoluble by blood and iron, against their will, Robert E. Lee

ho could be relied upon to do the right thing at the right time—a Virginia gentleman of gravity and of character. Early in December, 1863, our Division, under Fitz Lee, in order to be more accessible to supplies, camped near Charlottesville. Information reached General Stuart that General, Averill, with a large force, had started on a raid in Northwestern Virginia. Stuart ordered Fitz Lee to break camp at once and proceed against him. Accordingly, on the 10th of December, 1863, we left Charlottesville and started in pursuit of Averill. Lee's command, of which my regiment constituted a part, was occupied in this expedition for at least a month, and wLee's command, of which my regiment constituted a part, was occupied in this expedition for at least a month, and when we returned to Charlottesville on or about January 10th, 1864, the men were so used up and the horses so entirely broken down that it was thought best by our General that furloughs be issued and the men with their horses be temporarily dispersed to various localities to recuperate. A number of men belonging to my company were

t Second Cold Harbor.) After a hard march we reached the ford (Boteler's, just below Shepherdstown) at daybreak and crossed the Potomac, and marched up the river opposite Shepherdstown, halted, and two men from each company detailed to fill our canteens. At that time General Jackson rode up and directed General McLaws to strike McClellan about Dunkards' Church and drive him back. Kershaw's Brigade rested near the church, Barksdale's next, Semmes's next, Cobb's Legion next, I think, and Fitz Lee's cavalry next on the river. I think that was about the formation of the line about where we went in the battle. I will say just here that Captain R. I,. Henley (afterwards Judge 0f James City County), as we were on the way to the field procured a musket, and, as was his custom, went in the fight with his old company, C. He was at that time commissary of the regiment. He was wounded three times before leaving the field. We went on at quick time until halted and ordered to unsling kn

s Bluff. When armies are on the qui vive for a fight, slight and unforseen causes often bring it on. It was Pettigrew's, march in search of shoes, and his collision with Buford's cavalry, that precipitated the battle of Gettysburg, and defeated Lee's plan of concentration at Cashtown. So Stone's demonstration at Ball's Bluff deranged McClellan's plan for a general advance of his army. On the night of the 20th, Stone sent out a scouting party to cross at Harrison's Island and explore the e wounded prisoners and fifteen stands of arms, with a loss of three men wounded, while Devens reports one killed, nine wounded and three missing. Meantime, Devens had been reinforced by one hundred men of the Twentieth Massachusetts, under Colonel Lee, and by the other companies of his regiment, amounting in all to 753. There was an earthwork called Fort Evans, to the eastward of Leesburg, which commanded a wide view of the field of operation, where Colonel Evans fixed his headquarters a

As he sat upon his horse he looked steadily upon the dying Captain Lee, of the Thirty-third, who was propped against a small tree, and made this remark: The work Colonel Cumming's regiment did today was worth the loss of the entire regiment.

It will be observed that in Colonel Cummins conflict by the writer's failing to distinguish between the separated guns that were taken by Colonel Cummings and those subsequently carried nearer to the Henry House, when the whole field was swept in the final Confederate charge.

Lee, and he was a graduate of the Virginia Military Institute in the class of 1853. Two years late
