The Daily Dispatch: June 26, 1861., [Electronic resource], Judge Parker's charge to the Grand Jury of Frederick county, Va. (search)
credited by high official authority to the gallant commandant, I lost no time in reporting myself at "Headquarters," and need not say that I found in Col. John B Magruder all that my fancy had painted of the Virginia gentleman, the frank and manly representative of the chivalry of the dear Old Dominion. There, too, I met with Majbeth City Cavalry, and smoked a pipe with that warm-hearted prince of gentlemen, Robert Shield, the Sheriff of the county of York, bade the gallant and brave Colonel Magruder adieu, and, through dust and sunshine, returned to the ancient city of Williamsburg, to partake of the hospitalities of one of her most modest and most gifteable battle of Bethel, had been committed to the earth. His brother, under a flag of truce, came after the body from New York. It was disinterred by order of Col. Magruder, and sent on to the lines under escort of the Charles City Cavalry, Captain Douthat, and a detachment of the Howitzers. In silence this guard of honor moved o
n, as the left must be, when at a support, a charge, a present and a slope arms, and always, in cavalry, when the bridle-arm is used. The ladies — the ever ready and patriotic friends for soldiers — could, in one hour, shape and cut out, from a single piece of cotton, one thousand of these stars; and a general order from headquarters requiring them to be worn by all, would protect our brave men at once from the dreadful disasters — recently so frequent — resulting from these terrible mistakes. A very unmerited censure, it seems to me, has been cast by one of your Yorktown correspondents on Col. Magruder, for failing, on a recent occasion, to send out guides with videttes and scouting parties, by which failure, it is supposed, two of our scouts were fired upon by a party of our own men. It is not easy to see how any number of guides could have prevented this casualty. The unhappy mistake arose from the want of some such distinction in dress as that above suggested.
