Elias Binford, as I am now reminded that this accomplished young officer was sick at Chimborazo Hospital, in Richmond. He was convalescing at the time of the evacuation, and left the city with the ambulance train; was captured on the retreat, but made his escape on a captured horse, and being unable to join his own command, was assigned to Dance's battery, and surrendered with the army at Appomattox. After the war he devoted his life to teaching the youth of the South, and died in Amherst county, Va., in June, 1896. Yours very truly, Thomas Ballard Blake, late Captain, etc. St. Louis, December 29, 1897. To the Editor of the Dispatch: While on a visit to Richmond last spring I gave some reminiscences of the evacuation, retreat, Sailor's creek, &c., which appeared in your issue of May 22d. I had to rely entirely on memory, and was, therefore, very careful in my statements. I have recently been looking over the Records of the Union and Confederate Armies, published by t

While there, he spoke in the highest terms of the gallantry of his first lieutenant, J. M.

I will now quote from the report of the Federal commander, Major-General H. G. Wright, commanding the Sixth Corps, Army of the Potomac. After describing the disposition of his troops and our position on the opposite side of Sailor's creek, General Wright says: The 1st and 3rd divisions charged the enemy's positionGeneral Wright says: The 1st and 3rd divisions charged the enemy's position, carrying it handsomely, except at a point on our right of the road crossing the creek, where a column, said to be composed exclusively of the Marine (artillery) brigade and other troops, which had held the lines of Richmond previous to the evacuation, made a counter charge upon that part of our line in their front. I was never more astonished. These troops were surrounded. The 1st and 3rd divisions of this corps were on either flank; my artillery and a fresh division in their front, and s

Lieutenant-General Ewell, commanding the corps (Kershaw's and G. W. C. Lee's divisions), says that the Artillery Brigade of Lee's Division displayed a coolness and gallantry that earned the praise of the veterans who fought alongside of it, and even of the enemy. Our dashing cavalry leader, General Fitzhugh Lee, says: Though portions of the force, particularly the command of General G. W. C.

It is needless for me to add a word to the proud record of the Artillery Brigade at Sailor's creek. That record is now a part of the history of this great country, but by giving this a place in your Confederate column, it will doubtless reach the eyes of many to whom the voluminous government records may not be accessible.

Lee, commanding the divisions, composed of Barton's and of Crutchfield's Artillery Brigade, says: Before my troops got into position across the creek the enemy opened a heavy fire of artillery upon our line, which was continued up to the time of our capture. After shelling our lines and skirmishing for sohly praise the conduct of my command, and hope to have the opportunity of doing it full justice when reports are received from the brigade commanders.
