Harper's Encyclopedia of United States History (ed. Benson Lossing), Chantilly, battle of (search)
Chantilly, battle of On the morning after the second battle at Bull Run Pope was joined at Centreville by the corps of Franklin and Sumner. The next day (Sept. 1, 1862), Lee, not disposed to make a direct attack upon the Nationals, sent Jackson on another flanking movement, the latter taking with him his own and Ewell's division. With instructions to assail and turn Pope's right, he crossed Bull Run at Sudley Ford, and,. after a while, turning to the right, turned down the Little River pike, and marched towards Fairfax Court-house. Pope had prepared to meet this movement. Heintzelman and Hooker were ordered to different points, and just before sunset Reno met Jackson's advance (Ewell and Hill) near Chantilly. A cold and drenching rain was falling, but it did not prevent an immediate engagement. Very soon McDowell, Hooker, and Kearny came to Reno's assistance. A very severe battle raged for some time, when Gen. Isaac J. Stevens, leading Reno's second division in person, wa

cky in advance of Bragg. he pushed on towards the Ohio River with the purpose of capturing Cincinnati. The invader was confronted by an unexpected force near that city. Gen. Lew. Wallace was at Cincinnati when the news of the disaster at Richmond. Ky., reached that place. He was ordered by General Wright to resume the command of Nelson's shattered forces, but was called back to provide for the defence of Cincinnati. Half an hour after his arrival he issued a stirring proclamation (Sept. 1, 1862) as commander of that and the cities of Covington and Newport, on the Kentucky side of the river. He informed the inhabitants of the swift approach of the invaders in strong force, and called upon the citizens to act promptly and vigorously in preparing defences for the city. He ordered all places of business to be closed, and the citizens of Cincinnati, under the direction of the mayor, to assemble, an hour afterwards, in convenient public places, to be organized for work on intrenchm

co he lost his left arm in battle. After serving a campaign on the Pacific coast against the Indians, he went to Europe, and served on the staff of the French General Maurier in the Italian War (1859). He received from the French government a second decoration of the Legion of Honor. He hastened home when the Civil War broke out; was made brigadiergeneral of volunteers just after the battle of Bull Run, and commanded a brigade of New Jersey troops in Franklin's division, Army of the Potomac.

and be present on the field within three hours after its reception or after daybreak to-morrow morning. And General Grant further says that he considers the facts given before the Schofield board fully exonerated Porter of the charge of disobedience of the 4.30 order, and also in his lukewarmness in supporting the commanding general. How he can make this last statement I cannot understand. I will here insert a paragraph from a letter of George B. McClellan, major-general, written on Sept. 1, 1862, at 5.30 P. M., to Major-General Porter at Centreville, commanding the 5th Corps: I ask you, for my sake, that of the country, and of all the old Army of the Potomac, that you and all friends will lend the fullest and most cordial cooperation to General Pope in all the operations now going on. I merely put this in to ask the question of General Grant whether or not McClellan himself does not show from the writing of this note to General Porter that he did not believe that he (Porter

k on the city of Mexico. He resigned in 1853, and was appointed governor of Washington Territory and placed in charge of the survey of a route for a North Pacific railway, establishing its practicability. Governor Stevens was a delegate to Congress from Washington Territory from 1857 till 1861. A leading Democrat, he was in the convention at Charleston and Baltimore in 1860, and supported Breckinridge for the Presidency; but when the secession movements began he advised Buchanan to dismiss Floyd and Thompson, and supported the government nobly with his sword in the Civil War that ensued, entering the military service as colonel of the 79th New York Highlanders. He was active under Sherman in the Port Royal expedition in 1862; was afterwards attached to Pope's command, leading a division; and in the battle at Chantilly fell while bearing aloft the colors of one of his regiments and cheering on his men, Sept. 1, 1862. He had been promoted major-general of volunteers, July 4, 1862.
