[145] get out of harm's way. Taking into consideration the fact that Colonel Hunton got Sergeant Slaymaker's report at 7:30 A. M., and that the battle was on before 10 A. M., I cannot reconcile the report of some of General Evans's friends that he discovered the advance of the army through a signal station that he had established a day or two before on Hooe's Hill, below Manassas, with what I saw and know. I am very sure I am correct in my opinion that General Eppa Hunton is entitled to the honor of being the officer who prevented the defeat of the Confederate forces on July 21, 1861.
