McIntosh, was converted into artillery, and became the Pee-Dee or McIntosh battery, and so was separated from the regiment. The 1st and 12th regiments had been generally in the advance during the morning of the 27th of June, and when at 4 o'clock in the afternoon, arrangements had been made by General Lee for a general attack on the Federal position at Cold Harbor, General Gregg directed the 1st and 12th to advance upon a hillside, the ground of which—especially in front of the 1st—was covered by a dense thicket of young pines. The advance was met by a continuous fire of small arms, and General Gregg finding that great damage was done by an enfilading fire from a battery established a good way to our right, directed Colonel Marshall with the regiment of rifles Orr's rifles, as it was know

Couriers were sent to find a place to cross, in order to join General Lee's army, and about 1 o'clock the command was ordered to march. After crossinAnderson's Georgia brigade was reached. This brigade was the leading brigade in Lee's army, and had crossed on a pontoon bridge when the whole army was then crossin, but nothing definite could be learned until 12 o'clock, when it was known that Lee had indeed surrendered. It was soon learned that the soldiers would be paroled n to return home. Monday morning, April 10, 1865, the farewell address of General Lee was read to the regiment. All the soldiers of the regiment had the opportunity of shaking hands with General Lee and hearing him say, God bless you, boys; I hope we shall meet again! After remaining in this position until Wednesday, April

he red caps, but some of our men had got to wear them, and other caps, as well. After the articles of surrender had been agreed to, Lieutenant Clopton commanded members of his company who were present to mount the horses and drive the captured guns to camp, and there were no members of that company prouder than these. The guns— 3 inch steel rifles—a few days afterward were presented to the company by General George E. Pickett, and they were held on to until after the surrender of General Robert E. Lee, at Appomattox, when they were spiked and cut down just across the river at Lynchburg, on the Staunton road. Not long after the fort surrendered, about half a dozen of the infantry performed a daring and hazardous feat, which probably was not excelled during the war. They were out in the woods and ran out to a company of the boys in blue. It was no time to show the white feather, and our boys became as brave and fearless as Caesars. One of them ordered the company to ground arms

He never hesitated a moment, but in his most affable manner asked: May I have the pleasure of accompaning you? Lee's surrender. After church the party was sitting in the parlor chatting when Mr. Benjamin, who had been called away, entered the room, and, after conversing nonchalantly for a short time, beckoned Dr. Hoge to follow him to their chamber. When they were there Mr. Benjamin said: Dr. Hoge, I didn't have the heart to tell you before these ladies, something I want to communicate to you. He then went on to say that General Lee had surrendered. Mr. Benjamin's face never revealed what he suffered, but, said Dr. Hoge in relating the incident, I could not refrain from sitting down on the bed and weeping, a habit to which I am not addicted. When Mr. Benjamin set out on his trip southward from Danville shortly after this, he was asked by Dr

ieve. General Birkett Fry told me the incident, as follows: Lieutenant Lee, of Virginia, was the adjutant of the regiment, who, feeling hiCaptain was an avowed duelist and an expert rifle shot, and accepted Lee's challenge. They were to fight with rifles at forty paces. Jackson and Fry were seconds to Lee. Jackson won the word, which he delivered, standing in the position of a soldier, in stentorian tones, audible The Captain died many years after, regretting that he had not killed Lee. Jackson was a strict constructionist of all orders and of all po Let us form behind them. After the repulse at Malvern Hill, General Lee and other generals were discussing the situation, and what we weur homes.

ur children, as one people, with one country, and one flag, we accept the verdict of Fate, and say: It it well! The virtues of General Colston endeared him to a wide circle of friends. Some of them in this city have expressed the desire that a suitable monument be raised by subscription over his remains, which rest in our beautiful Hollywood Cemetary, and that a portrait in oil of him be added to the appealing collection of Southern Chieftains, which now grace the walls of the Hall of R.
