dear Sir—In my article on the Artillery Defence of Fort Gregg, published in Vol.
XIX, Southern Historical Society Papers (pp. 65-71), I find that I was in error as to the artillery officer named Chew, who was in the fort when the assault was made.
It was not Colonel Chew of Virginia, an officer of tried and distinguished gallantry, but Captain W. S. Chew, Fourth Maryland, who was there, but not in command.
I, therefore, tender my apology to Colonel Chew for the error I made unintentionally.
