I have in nowise drawn on the imagination, and the facts as stated can be attested by the staff of medical officers who labored at the Elmira prison for the Rebel soldiers. Ex-Medical officer United States army. We could multiply such statements as are given above almost indefinitely. We have the diary of the prison experience of Rev. L. W. Allen (a prominent Baptist minister of Virginia), the diary of Captain Robert E. Park, of Georgia, the narrative of Benjamin Dashiels, of Colonel Snowden Andrews' Maryland Artillery, who was most inhumanly punished at Fort Delaware for refusing to give the names of friends in Maryland who were secretly ministering to the suffering prisoners, and a number of other Mss., which all go to prove the points we have made. Indeed, it would be a very easy task to compile from Mss. in our possession several large volumes on the cruelties of Federal prisons. But we cannot now go into this subject more fully. Nor can we now even touch upon the cruelt

lowing incident occurred. Late in the afternoon of the preceding day, general orders had been issued by General Joseph E. Johnston, informing us of the intended retrograde movement on the next morning. Among the instructions was one to the effect that any gun caisson, quartermaster, or commissary wagon which might become set in the mud so as to impede the line of march must be destroyed at once. In other words, the road must be kept clear. At that time the writer was a lieutenant in Snowden Andrews's battery of light artillery, and, as such, commanded one section of 2 guns, which, with their caissons, required 4 teams of 6 horses each. Of these 4 teams, 3 were in fair condition for service, but the fourth was notoriously weak. When the general's order was read, I became very anxious about this team, especially as nothing is considered more humiliating to a battery than to have to part with a portion of its equipment, no matter what the cause may be; so that when the retreat was

I moved accordingly my ployed masses by the flank at double-quick, gradually gaining deployment distance; thus throwing forward on the right the Second Massachusetts infantry, Colonel Andrews; in the centre, the Third Wisconsin infantry, Colonel Ruger; and on the left, the Twenty-seventh Indiana infantry, Colonel Colgrove. The One Hundred and Seventh New-York infantry, Colonel Van Valkenburg, I held in reserve, throwing them intg themselves upon their foes to drive them into their protecting forests beyond. We slept upon the bloody field of our victory. I cannot too highly praise the conduct of my brigade — of regiments old and new. Of the Second Massachusetts, Colonel Andrews, Third Wisconsin, Colonel Ruger, and Twenty-seventh Indiana, Colonel Colgrove, I had a right to expect much, and was not disappointed. Veterans of Winchester and Cedar Mountain, they can add to their laurels the battle of Antietam Creek.

He then ordered some pieces of artillery, under the general charge of Major Snowden Andrews, chief of artillery for the division, to the point where the bare field commenced, and o of his command as a soldier. I beg leave, in conclusion, to allude to the gallantry of Major Snowden Andrews, chief of artillery, who was severely, and I fear mortally, wounded; to that of my Adjutd in the battle of the ninth instant, at Cedar Run: About five o'clock P. M., by order of Major Andrews, two Parrott guns were taken to the front, along the road leading to Culpeper Court-House. These, along with Captain Carpenter's Parrott piece, were, by direction of Major Andrews, posted in the road so as to enfilade the enemy's batteries then engaging our batteries on the right.

vice with the Confederate banner! Look at Captain Randolph Barton, of another Virginia regiment. He is living to-day (1911) with just about one dozen scars on his body. He would be wounded; get well; return to duty, and in the very next battle be shot again! Look at that gallant old soldier, General Ewell. Like his brave foeman, General Sickles, he has lost his leg, but that cannot keep him home; he continues to command one of Lee's corps to the very end at Appomattox. Look at Colonel Snowden Andrews of Maryland. At Cedar Mountain, in August, 1862, a shell literally nearly cut him in two; but by a miracle he did not die; and in June, 1863, there he is again commanding his artillery battalion! He is bowed crooked by that awful wound; he cannot stand upright any more, but still he can fight like a lion. As you walk through the camps, you will see many of the men busily polishing their muskets and their bayonets with wood ashes well moistened. Bright muskets and tattered unif

e open fields of Kentucky. On the 24th of October, 1861, Henry B. Latrobe, eldest son of John H. B. Latrobe, of Baltimore, together with John B. Rowan, William T. Patten, William L. Ritter, and other Marylanders, then at Richmond, Virginia, began vigorous measures for recruiting a company of artillery. The first-named gentleman was already authorized to organize such a command, to be composed chiefly of Marylanders, and to be known as the Third Maryland Artillery--the company of Captain Snowden Andrews being the first, and the Baltimore Light Artillery the second. The rendezvous was at Ashland, whither recruits were conveyed as fast as enrolled. The company was ordered to Camp Dimmock for instruction on the 4th of November. On the 15th Lieutenant H. A. Steuart left for Maryland to obtain medical supplies and raise recruits for the Third Maryland Artillery, but was captured at Millstone Landing, on the Patuxent river. He was imprisoned in the Old Capitol at Washington, and wa

by any army that ever marched under any flag. Snowden Andrews was the ideal of a young gentleman formed by suttached to Pender's North Carolina brigade, and Captain Andrews was slightly wounded. General Pender in his report says: The section of Andrews' battery was under Lieutenant Dement, who did fine service. Captain Andrews Captain Andrews as usual was present, chafing for a fight. After that campaign he was promoted major for gallant and meritories. In the movement on Pope in August, 1862, Major Andrews commanded the artillery of Winder's division, orace was the left of Jackson's line and with him was Andrews' battalion of artillery. The Federals struck Wind, they would have been crushed and Jackson ruined. Andrews, without waiting for orders, took his old battery, es, a shell knocked him from his horse dead, and as Andrews rode at the head of his battery, he was nearly cut ell, and nearly lost another as good a man when Snowden Andrews was so badly wounded.

officer, General Gorgas says: He succeeded with a very little money in buying a good supply and in running the ordnance department into debt for nearly half a million sterling—the very best proof of his fitness for his place and of a financial ability which supplemented the narrowness of Mr. Memminger's purse. General Gorgas had an admirable Staff of Officers, among them such men as. Major Smith Stansbury, Colonel G. W. Rains, Colonel LeRoy Broun, Colonel J. W. Mallett, T. A. Rhett, Snowden Andrews, Wright, White, Burton, De Lagnel, General St. John, Colonels Morton and Ellicott, Colonels B. G. Baldwin, William Alan, J. Wilcox Browne, E. B. Smith, Cuyler, Colston and others no less distinguished during the war than they have been in after life. These officers were in constant personal contact with their Chief, and all of them give testimony as to his great ability as an officer—his devotion to duty and his tact and kind consideration for them, and all of his subordinates.
