Appendix to vol. II.


Note a, page 71.

SINCE the foregoing pages were printed we have received additional information which compels us to correct a statement relative to General Keyes. He did not arrive on the field of battle at Fair Oaks with Peck's brigade, as we had believed. He was on the ground almost from the commencement of the battle, and some time before the moment when he directed this brigade what position it should take.

Note B, page 148.
