, to give them a respite till morning. While my reliefs were going around, General Philip Kearny rode to the line in search of his division. Finding himself in the presence of Confederates, he wheeled his horse and put spurs, preferring the danger of musket-balls to humiliating surrender. Several challenges called, but not heeded, were followed by the ring of half a dozen muskets, when he fell mortally hurt, and so perished one of the most gallant and dashing of the Union generals. September 2, 1862. Major-General John Pope, United States Army: Sir,-- Rebellion Record. The body of General Philip Kearny was brought from the field last night, and he was reported dead. I send it forward under a flag of truce, thinking the possession of his remains may be a consolation to his family. I am, sir, respectfully, your obedient servant, R. E. Lee, General.

His reception by his company was most gratifying. As soon as he got to camp, it drew up in line, and requested him to come to the front, when the Orderly came up, leading a very handsome bay horse, elegantly equipped, which he presented to his Captain, in the name of the company. Lynchburg, September 2, 1862. The papers to-day give glorious news of a victory to our arms on the plains of Manassas, on the 28th, 29th, and 30th.

was restored to command. At the time, I was serving in Company A, 12th Massachusetts Volunteers, attached to Ricketts's division of the First Army Corps. The announcement of McClellan's restoration came to us in the early evening of the 2d of September, 1862, just after reaching Hall's Hill, weary from long marching and well-nigh disheartened by recent reverses. The men were scattered about in groups, discussing the events of their ill-starred campaign, and indulging in comments that were decnt of the forces he may deem necessary for the defense of Washington, when such active army shall take the field. See Washington under Banks, p. 542.--Editors. was the following: War Department, Adjutant-General's Office, Washington, September 2, 1862.

ampaign; and this was their mode of resenting the indignity. --see Greeley's American conflict, II. 192. by order of General Halleck, the broken and demoralized Army was withdrawn within the fortifications around Washington the next day, Sept. 2, 1862. when it was allowed a brief rest. Pope now repeated with greater earnestness his request, made before he took the field, to be relieved of the command of the Army of Virginia, and allowed to return to the West, and it was granted. The Army of Virginia disappeared as a separate organization, and became a part of the Army of the Potomac; and General McClellan, in compliance with the wishes of a large majority of his surviving officers and men, was invested Sept. 2, 1862. with the command of all the troops for the defense of the Capital. the sad results of Pope's campaign, and of that on the Peninsula, cast a pall of gloom over the spirits of the loyal people for a moment. But it was soon lifted; while the conspirators and the

the struggle by General Cruft, who, as we have seen, distinguished himself at the siege of Fort Donelson. See page 215. Considering the rawness of the troops and their lack of discipline (some of them not over thirty days old as soldiers, and many who had not yet experienced a battalion-drill), the prowess displayed by them in the battle of Richmond marked it as one of the most creditable engagements of the war on the part of the Nationals. The elated victors pushed on to Lexington, Sept. 2, 1862. where they were warmly welcomed by the secessionists of that stronghold of slavery in Kentucky. Encouraged by their friendly demonstrations, Smith issued a proclamation to the Kentuckians, assuring them that he, came as a liberator, in the spirit of the State Supremacy Doctrine of the Resolutions of 1798. He had come, he said, to test the truth of what he believed to be a foul aspersion, that Kentuckians willingly joined in an attempt to subjugate their Southern brethren. Like all

General Porter sent the following reply:-- Fairfax Court-House, 10 A. M., September 2, 1862. You may rest assured that all your friends, as well as every lover of his country, will ever give, as they have given, to General Pope their cordial co-operation and constant support in the execution of all orders and plans.

This suggestion was adopted, and General Hooker was made a brigadier-general in the regular army of the United States, his commission bearing date September 2, 1862. The result of the victories at South Mountain and Antietam was to drive the enemy from Maryland, to secure Pennsylvania from invasion, and to put Harper's Ferry once more into our possession.
