Map of the battle-ground at Greenbrier river.

We have seen a map of the battle-ground at Greenbrier river, and of the surrounding country as far as the enemy's encampment on Cheat Mountain, which was drawn by Lieut. C. S. Morgan, of Richmond. This map enables one to see at a glance the respective positions of all of our regiments and batteries, as well as those of the enemy, and delineates the features of the country so clearly that the whole scene is present to the mind of the spectator. The style of its execution is highly creditable to our young townsman, who has gone to the Northwest, the home of his ancestors, to aid in redeeming their graves from the possession of the Federal vandals. Though a lieutenant in rank, he is acting Adjutant of Lieut. Colonel Hansbrough's battalion, his military education having qualified him peculiarly for such a post.
