William M. McGregor. Horse Artillery loss: k, 4; w, 6 = 10. The total loss of the Confederate Army, based mainly upon the reports of brigade and division commanders, aggregated 1649 killed, 9106 wounded, and 1708 captured or missing = 12,463. The return of the Army of Northern Virginia for March 31st, 1863 ( Official Records, Vol. XXV., Pt. II., p. 696), shows an effective total of all arms of 57,112. To this number there should be added the net increase during the month of April, a period of rest and recruiting, of perhaps 3000, and say 1500 for the reserve artillery of Jackson's corps, not reported on the return for March. This addition gives a total of 61,612. Then, deducting Hampton's brigade of cavalry, recruiting south of the James River, and numbering, perhaps, 1600, the effect

nd) cavalry from the Army of Tennessee, and Evans's brigade from Charleston. These troops, except the cavalry, having come by railroad, were not equipped for the service before them: that of rescuing the garrison of Vicksburg. They required artillery, draught horses and mules, wagons, ammunition, and provisions, all in large numbers and quantity; the more because it was necessary to include the Vicksburg troops in our estimates. According to Lieutenant-General Pemberton's report of March 31st, 1863 (the only one I can find), he had then present for duty 2360 officers and 28,221 enlisted men. These were the troops that occupied Vicksburg and the camp at Edwards's depot when General Pemberton received my order dated May 13th. There were, besides, above two thousand cavalry in the northern and south-western parts of the State. I have General Grant's reports of May 31st and June 30th, 1863. The first shows a force of 2991 officers and 47.500 enlisted men present for duty: the sec

Reply, if any, not found. Yours, very respectfully, A. N. Toutant Beauregard. Charleston, S. C., March 31, 1863. Col.

In April, 1863, it comprised the divisions of Corcoran, Getty, and Gurney, including, also, two brigades which were stationed at Yorktown, under General Keyes, and one brigade at Norfolk, under General Viele; in all, 52 regiments of infantry, 9 batteries of light artillery, and 5 battalions of cavalry. The corps return for March 31, 1863, showed an aggregate of 32,741 present and absent, with 24,127 present for duty, equipped. Corcoran's Division was in action, January 30, 1863, in an affair at Deserted House, Va., in which it lost 23 killed, 108 wounded, and 12 missing. Both Corcoran's and Getty's Divisions were engaged in the defence of Suffolk, losing 41 killed, 223 wounded, and 2 missing, the principal loss falling on Getty's Division. In July, 1863, the brigade known as the Corcoran Legion was ordered on duty
Doc. 154.-expedition up the Yazoo River, its Journal and history. near Vicksburgh, Monday, March 31, 1863. The return of all the transports and gunboats of Admiral Porter's naval and military expedition up the Yazoo River, to their former rendezvous in and near the mouth of the Yazoo, will have reached you by telegraph, and the whole affair will have passed into history, perhaps before this is seen by the readers of the Times. The rebels undoubtedly take great credit to themselves for having defeated the expedition; and the withdrawal of our gunboats and troops will be trumpeted as another glorious victory. It is true the prime object of the expedition — which was understood to be the taking of Yazoo City; the capture of the transports and gunboats, if any were found, and the getting into position to attack Haines's Bluff from above, was not accomplished, owing to the delay arising from unexpected obstacles in Black Bayou. There was some hard fighting both by the land forc

river), and Jackson's corps, of A. P. Hill's, Early's, D. H. Hill's under Rodes, and Trimble's under Colston, and two brigades of cavalry under W. H. F. Lee and Fitzhugh Lee. Hampton's brigade was absent, having been sent to the interior to recruit, and W. E. Jones was in the Valley. Present, then, we find six infantry divisions or twenty-eight brigades, and the cavalry brigades of nine regiments. The official return of the Army of Northern Virginia nearest to the battle extant — viz: 31st March, 1863--shows in Anderson's and McLaws' divisions, 15,649; in Jackson's corps, 33,333; in reserve artillery, 1,621. That return puts the cavalry at 6,509. My brigade numbered about 1,500 (it will be remembered at Kelleysville, two weeks before, it numbered 800) and W. H. F. Lee's about 1,200, making 2,700 cavalry; and the discrepancy is accounted for by the fact that Hampton's and Jones' brigades were included in the return, because, though absent, they were included in the Army of Northern
own an equal. Too devoted to the cause he served to have any personal motive, he shared the toils, privations, and dangers of his troops when in chief command; in subordinate position his aim was to understand the purpose of his commander and faithfully to promote its success. He was the complement of Lee; united, they had achieved such results that the public felt secure under their shield. To us his place was never filled. The official return of the Army of Northern Virginia, on March 31, 1863, shows as present for duty 57,112, of which 6,509 were cavalry and 1,621 reserve artillery. On May 20th, two weeks after the battle, when Pickett's and Hood's divisions had rejoined the army, the total infantry force numbered but 55,261 effective men, from which, if the strength of Hood's and Pickett's divisions is deducted, there would remain 41,358 as the strength of the commands that participated in the battles of Chancellorsville.
