he several subordinate commanders for reference to the signal parts played by individuals of their respective command Contradictory statements, found in these reports, should not excite surprise when we remember how difficult, if not impossible, it is to reconcile the narrations of bystanders, of participants in even the most inconsiderable affair, much less the shifting thrilling scenes of a battle-field. Accompanying are maps showing the positions of the armies on the morning of the 21st July, and of three several stages of the battle; also, of the line of Bull Run north of Blackburn's Ford. These maps, from actual surveys made by Captain D. B. Harrison, assisted by Mr. John Grant, were drawn by the latter with a rare delicacy worthy of high commendation.

In view of these palpable military conditions, by half-past 4 A. M., on the 21st July, I had prepared and dispatched orders, directing the whole of the Confederate forces within the lines of Bull Run, including the brigades and regiments of Gen. Johnston, which had arrived at that time, to be held in readiness to march at a moment's notice. At that hour the following was the disposition of our forces: Ewell's brigade, constituted as on the 18th of July remained in position at Union Mills Ford, its left extending along Bull Run, in the direction of McLean's Ford, an
