Thus ended the battle of the 21st, the last gun having been fired from one of the rifles of my battery. The guns of this battery, under command of Captain Miller, with General Jones' brigade, and Lieutenant Garnett, with General Longstreet's brigade, were not engaged at their respective points, although under fire a portion of the day. The howitzer battery, under Lieutenant- Commanding Rosser, with General Ewell's brigade, was on the march from 2 o'clock p. m. in the direction of Fairfax Court-House, and returning by way of Union Mills Ford, arrived with the reserve at my position, unfortunately too late to take part in the engagement, notwithstanding the battery was moved at a trot and the canno
