e, and Dixie came borne upon the morning air — never sounding sweeter. At seven o'clock, General Andrews, Chief of the Staff of General Banks, made his grand entrance into the rebel fortificationsem on one side of the road, their backs to the river. General Gardner then advanced toward General Andrews, and, in a few accompanying words, offered to surrender his sword with Port Hudson; but GenGeneral Andrews told him that, in appreciation of his bravery — however misdirected — he was at liberty to retain his sword. Our men were then drawn up in two lines on the other side of the road, oppels, and our officers placed themselves in front of their men. General Gardner then said to General Andrews: General, I will now formally surrender my command to you, and for that purpose will give the orders to ground arms. The order was given and the arms were grounded. After that General Andrews sent for the enemy's general officers, staff and field-officers. The line-officers were left <
s from the breastworks. I went to the breastworks. The Yanks cut the telegraph wire and destroyed a bridge five miles from here. May 14.--We had a pretty hot bombardment last night. We are again in camps. The long-ranged guns dropped a few shells into our camps this evening. May 18.--The Yanks came over to the Hermitage, and drove off the beef cattle. Sent over the infantry portion of the regiment, Colonel Locke commanding, but the Yanks had left. They took Captain Pruett, Lieutenants Andrews and Crymes, and several privates prisoners. May 19.--The Yankee fleet is above. Our company has gone over the river. The boys has had a hot time over the river. Whipped the Yanks, one hundred in number. Killed two. Captain Knowles captured a saddle, overcoat, etc. Doctor Madding captured a horse, saddle and bridle. The boys captured some coats, hats, etc., also a gun. May 20.--We are yet over the river. No alarm. Confirmation of Grant's defeat. A detail was made to load
ant Dan Whitaker, and were by them driven through the town back to a ridge of hills half a mile to the west, extending across from the Middleburgh and Snicker's Gap road, where the rebel force was in position ready for action. The advance brigade under General Kilpatrick, immediately moved through to the westerly edge of the town. The First Maine, Colonel Douty, was sent off to a point half a mile to the left, and the Fourth New-York, Colonel Cesnola, to the right, to support a section of Andrews's battery placed on a rise of ground north of the Snicker's Gap road. The enemy at this time occupied the hill, as before stated, where they had four guns in position ; a line of their skirmishers occupied a fence on the eastern slope, and a long ditch, just in front of which were half a dozen stacks of hay, thus commanding both Middleburgh and Snicker's Gap roads. A stronger position could not well have been selected. When the exact position of the enemy had been ascertained by drawing
to take place at seven o'clock on the morning of the ninth. At six o'clock the garrison were drawn up in line, and two officers of General Gardner's staff were sent to conduct the Federal officer deputed to receive the surrender. This was General Andrews, who entered the lines shortly after seven o'clock, on the Clinton road. General Gardner met him at the right of our line and delivered up his sword, observing that he surrendered his sword and his garrison since his provisions were exhausted. General Andrews replied that he received General Gardner's sword, but returned it to him for having maintained his defence so gallantly. Meantime the enemy's infantry moved down in front of our line, both wings resting on the river, and completely encircling the little garrison, as if to cut off any attempt to escape. About that time our informant succeeded in passing through the lines, and evading the enemy's outposts. A great many of the garrison — probably several hundred--had made
refor such rules and regulations as shall be needful for good government of and protection to the city and its inhabitants; and for that purpose he will, on application to these headquarters, have such details of infantry as may be by him deemed necessary.
