IV. Richmond, Va., Oct., 1877.
Leading Confederates on the battle of Gettysburg.
[continued from our September no.]
The papers which we have been publishing on the battle of Gettysburg
have attracted great attention and excited wide interest.
We hope to add a number of others from distinguised soldiers who were in position to know what occurred, and who have promised to send us their views on the questions propounded by our distinguished foreign critic.
In response to our request for a paper from General John B. Hood
he sends us a copy of the following letter to General Longstreet
In a note to the Secretary
accompanying this letter General Hood
says: “It does not cover all the points upon which you desire information, but may prove of interest.”
We feel sure that our readers will be glad to have the statement of this gallant and accomplished soldier.
