[52] battle of Gettysburg, I find myself compelled, for the first time since the war, to present myself in print.

If my poor services on that sanguinary and trying field were of any value or of any merit, such as they were, I have the pride to wish to preserve the record of them as dear to me and to my my friends.

Your obedient servant, J. B. Walton, Late Chief of Artillery, First Corps, A. N. V., Comd'g.
