Twenty-Eighth North Carolina Infantry. [from the daily Charlotte (N. C.) observer, Feb. 17, 1895.] General J. H. Lane writes its history. Another of the Historical war sketches prepared at the instance of Judge Clark—a record of glory and honor.

At the request of Judge Walter Clark, General James H. Lane, of Auburn, Alabama, has prepared a sketch of his old regiment, the Twenty-eighth North Carolina. A copy of it is sent to the Observer and is herewith published. In a private letter to the editor General Lane says of his work:

‘My old regiment has a splendid record and I do not feel equal to such a theme. I have done my best in the way of a chronological summary of its brilliant achievements. My object in interspersing it freely with unpublished reminiscences—personal incidents of my own knowledge—is to make it more interesting to the general reader. It required both time and labor to get up the sketch, and yet it has been a great pleasure to me to do it.’
