Brother Strickler, of the Fifth Louisiana, preached to the Ninth Louisiana on Sabbath. They turned out almost to a man.

The night was cool, but the soldiers around the log fire were quite attentive. The next Sabbath morning preached for Sharpe's Mississippi Brigade, and in the afternoon for Lowry's Alabama and Mississippi Brigades; kindly received by Colonel Abecrombie, Forty-fifth Alabama, and Chaplain McBride, Fifth Mississippi Regiment, and by General Sharp and Chaplain Archer. The soldiers in each command came out in the spoke and wind to hear preaching. The troops began to leave Tupelo on the 19th and all were gone by the 28th. I remained until the last command left in order to distribute all supplies that might arrive. On Sunday, 29th, I preached for Quarles's Tennessee and Alabama Brigades, West Point, Mississippi, and furnished hymn-books and papers for them and Ector's Texas Brigade.

xtended north of the Chambersburg pike and railway, seemed to be aiming for Devin's right, while Archer's, on his (Davis's) left, deployed southward and advanced toward the Seminary Ridge. The firing was brisk and our skirmishers retiring. Archer had reached the edge of a handsome grove of trees that stretched along south of the pike and near Willoughby Run. Reynolds quickly made his dispositions. Meredith was sent against Archer. He deployed and endeavored to take the grove in front. Wadsworth, with Cutler's brave troops, and Buford still there to help him, deployed, pressed forward, a charge straight forward which resulted in the capture of a Confederate brigade commander (General Archer) and several hundred of his men; but Cutler, farther to the right, was not so fortunate. A ut just then no active effort by either army.

Winder's reserve brigade was formed a little to the left of Branch, who was followed by Archer, Pender, Stafford, and Field. The Second Massachusetts, Twenty-seventh Indiana, and four companies Third Wisconsin (of my brigade), and the Tenth Maine. On our left we had two brigades preparing to charge through the cornfield upon three bpared to examine the details of our own movements. We have seen the condition of Banks's line when skirmishers from the Second Massachusetts of my brigade were seen coming into action, and we can, from the official reports of Jackson and Branch, Archer and Pender, know exactly the force of the enemy that confronted us. It was about half-past 5 o'clock in the afternoon, when General Williams, my division commander, sent me an order to observe him, and when he made a signal by waving his handk
