Doc. 11.-evacuation of Winchester. Major-General Milroy's report. Baltimore, June 30, 1863. Colonel: I have been compelled by the exigencies of public duties connected with my late command to defer until this time a report of the recent operations about Winchester. Having no reports from brigade commanders and not even an opportunity of conferring with them, I am still unable to give a detailed report. A sense of duty to myself and to the officers and soldiers which I had the honor to command requires that I should submit some general statements. I occupied Winchester with my command on the twenty-fifth of December last, and continued in its occupancy until Monday morning, the fifteenth instant, when, for reasons which will appear in the sequel of this report, I was compelled to evacuate it. When I first occupied Winchester, the valley of the Shenandoah, from Staunton to Strasburgh, was occupied by the rebel General Jones, with a force variously estimated at from fi
Doc. 12.-rebel raid into Indiana. New-Albany, Indiana, June 20, 1863. Last week a raid was made into Elizabethtown, Kentucky, by what was then supposed to be a force of guerrillas. They did little damage except to plunder the stores, and help themselves to whatever portable property struck their fancy. Horses suffered particularly, they being a self-moving article of plunder. Medicines, wearing apparel, and boots and shoes were also much in demand. After a stay of a few hours in the town the rebels moved off to the southward, and it was supposed they had retired to the Cumberland River. They stated that they belonged to Captain Hind's company of the Second Kentucky cavalry, and were attached to Morgan's brigade. They were well armed with sabres, carbines, and revolvers, and uniformed in the regular uniform of rebel cavalry. They were estimated from eighty to one hundred and thirty strong-probably much nearer the former number. After leaving Elizabethtown nothing m
Doc. 13.-siege of Port Hudson. attack of June 14, 1863. Major-General Augur's headquarters, before Port Hudson, Monday, June 15, 1863. Here we are still, among these grand old magnolia forests, with the almost incessant roar of artillery and musketry in our ears ; the desultory firing, kept up night and day, being enough to keep the beleaguered rebels, one would imagine, perpetually without rest. They must certainly attach a deep importance to this stronghold, or human endurance could scarcely hold out against the dreadful ordeal to which we have subjected them for the past two or three weeks. Since the twenty-seventh, on which day occurred the attacks of which I have sent you an account, there has been nothing going on here of a nature to be made public, or which could be said to go beyond mere preparations for future operations, and investing the enemy more closely than ever. The bloody results of that day taught us what the people of the North are not always ready t
Doc. 14.-the capture of Richmond, La. Admiral Porter's report. United States Mississippi Squadron, flag-ship Black Hawk, near Vicksburgh, Thursday, June 18, 1863. sir: I have the honor to inform you, that, hearing the enemy had collected a force of twelve thousand men at Richmond, in Louisiana, nine miles from Milliken's Bend, I sent General Ellet to General Mowry, at Young's Point, to act in conjunction to wake them up. General Mowry promptly acceded to the request, and, with about one thousand two hundred men in company with the Marine brigade, General A. W. Ellet commanding, proceeded to Richmond, where they completely routed the advance-guard of the rebels, consisting of four thousand men and six pieces of artillery, captured a lot of stores, and the town was completely destroyed in the melee. This duty was handsomely performed by the different parties connected in it. David D. Porter, Assistant Rear-Admiral. Brigadier-General Ellet's report. Headquarters
Doc. 15.-rebel views of peace. Two years hence. Richmond, June 16. In two years, as many persons hope, we may possibly have peace — that is, always provided we continue to repulse and defeat the invading enemy. The Yankee democracy is certainly rousing itself and preparing for a new struggle (at the ballot-box) in the great cause of the spoils, or, as they call it, the cause of constitutional liberty. Those Democrats are evidently beginning to raise a peace platform for their next Presidential election; and if they have the good luck to be helped on and sustained by more and more serious disasters of the Yankee army in the field, there is no doubt that the present devourers of the said spoils at Washington may soon be so discredited and decried that our enemy's country would be ripe for such peaceful ballot-box revolution. It is sincerely to be hoped that those earnest champions of constitutional freedom will be help. ed on and sustained in the manner they require,
Doc. 16.-defeat of Everett's guerrillas. camp Tenth Kentucky volunteer cavalry, Mount Sterling, Ky., June 17. The expedition against Pete Everett's gang of guerrillas has returned. They were the Eighth and Ninth Michigan cavalry, and the Tenth Kentucky cavalry, the two former under Colonel De Courcy, the latter under Major Foley. The rebels were about two hundred and fifty strong. They immediately, after committing their depredations at Maysville, broke for the mountains. The Tenth, under Major Foley, went as far as Fleminsburgh, and finding that they had escaped, pushed on to overtake them. In the mean time the Eighth and Ninth Michigan cavalry had gone by the way of Owingsville to cut them off. The Tenth overtook them at Triplitt's Bridge last evening, some twenty miles east of the former place. In the mean time Colonel De Courcy, with the Eighth and Ninth regiments, had got on before them and formed in a line of battle on the bluff facing the bridge across the cree
Doc. 17.-Major-Gen. McClernand's report. Detailing the march of the Thirteenth army corps from Milliken's Bend to Vicksburgh, Mississippi, etc. see page 687 Docs., Vol. VI. R. R. headquarters Thirteenth army corps, battle-field, near Vicksburgh, Miss., June 17, 1863. Lieutenant-Colonel J. A. Rawlins, Assistant Adjutant-General, Department of the Tennessee: Colonel: I have the honor to submit the following report of the principal operations of the forces with me, since the thirtieth of last March, in compliance with orders from department headquarters. These forces consist of a portion of the Thirteenth army corps, and comprise four divisions, organized as follows: Ninth division--Brigadier-General P. J. Osterhaus commanding: First Brigade--Brigadier-General T. T. Garrard commanding, consisting of the Forty-eighth and Sixty-ninth Indiana, One Hundred and Twentieth Ohio, One Hundred and Thirteenth Illinois, and Seventh Kentucky. Second Brigade--Colonel L. A
Doc. 18.-capture of the Atlanta. Reports of Admiral Du Pont. flag-ship Wabash, Port Royal harbor, S. C., June 17, 1863. Hon. Gideon Welles, Secretary of Navy, Washington: sir: Having reason to believe the Atlanta and other rebel iron-clads at Savannah were about attempting to enter Warsaw Sound by Wilmington River, for the purpose of attacking the blockading vessels there and in the sounds further south, I despatched some days ago the Weehawken, Captain John Rodgers, from this port, and the Nahant, Commander J. Downes, from North-Edisto, to Warsaw, where the Cimerone, Commander Drake, was maintaining the inside blockade. I have the satisfaction to report to the department this morning that the Atlanta came down by Wilmington River into Warsaw Sound, and was captured. This information has just been received in a telegram from Fort Pulaski, sent by Captain John Rodgers. Very respectfully, your obedient servant, S. F. Du Pont, Rear-Admiral Commanding South-Atlantic B
Doc. 19.-capture of Brashear City. Private letters from a member of the one hundred and Seventy-Sixth New-York volunteers, (Ironsides.) Brashear, June 22, 1863. dear----: I write, as the Irishman would say, to tell you that you need not be surprised if you do not get this letter, as all communication is cut off. We, that is, the remnant still left of the once gallant One Hundred and Seventy-sixth, are in hourly expectation of being taken prisoners, yet strange to say the general tendency is to laugh and joke over our interesting situation, and to regard rather the comical than the lugubrious side of the question. I will, however, commence the history from the beginning, and proceed as far as the progress of events will allow me, leaving the still dubious conclusion for another edition. Yesterday morning at three o'clock, our men were waked up for an expedition; as I have already written to you, we have had an enormous number of false alarms and bogus expeditions of l
Doc. 20.-the battles of Gettysburgh. Cincinnati Gazette account. special correspondence of Mr. Whitelaw Reid to the Cincinnati Gazette, from the army of the Potomac. After the invaders. I. Getting a good ready.Washington, June 29, 1863. would like you (if you feel able) to equip yourself with horse and outfit, put substitutes in your place in the office, and join Hooker's army in time for the fighting. It was a despatch, Sunday evening, from the manager, kindly alluding to a temporary debility that grew out of too much leisure on a recent visit west. Of course I felt able, or knew I should by to-morrow. But, alas! it was Hooker's army no longer. Washington was all a-buzz with the removal. A few idol-worshippers hissed their exultation at the constructive disgrace; but for the most part, there was astonishment at the unprecedented act and indignation at the one cause to which all attributed it. Any reader who chanced to remember a few paragraphs in a rec
