en published at the date of my strictures on Dr. Bates' book. In those strictures the Confederate s, even if correct, would give no support to Dr. Bates' conclusions. As to the number of the regiments, I distinctly adopted Dr. Bates' roster. He gives 163 (not 167 as — has it) as the number of day the infantry corps numbered 78,255, and Dr. Bates shows that the cavalry and the reinforcementttending his testimony show how unfounded is Dr. Bates' statement. Let us examine for a moment the process by which Dr. Bates arrives at his 72,000. In the return given by Butterfield, the Firsh, 11,350. On July 1st it went into battle, Dr. Bates says, with 8,200-decrease 3,150. This ratioto the whole number borne upon the rolls, as Dr. Bates has it. In the civil war the officers on botnumber of regiments on each side as given by Dr. Bates himself. All these go to show that Gen. ent., between the Potomac and Gettysburg, as Dr. Bates imagines, he brought almost his entire force[17 more...]

cordingly made. At about 9 o'clock P. M. each of our batteries delivered a few rounds for the purpose of ascertaining whether or not a reply could be elicited. With the exception of one or, perhaps, two pieces on my extreme left, there was no response along my whole front. Before daylight on the morning of the 27th our skirmishers occupied a portion of the enemy's main works without opposition. By direction of the Lieutenant-General commanding the corps, Deas' brigade, with Jackson's, of Bates' division, of Hardee's corps, Brigadier-General H. R. Jackson commanding the whole, were sent forward in pursuit on the Lickskillet road. They advanced cautiously a distance of six or seven miles to within a short distance of the Chattahoochee river, and, coming upon a force of the enemy deemed too strong to be assailed by the two brigades, the command was halted, and Brigadier-General Jackson reported the facts and awaited further instructions; whereupon the two brigades were directed by

orps, 7,925; making in all, 78,245. This was exclusive of the cavalry, which Bates, in his history of the battle, concedes to have been 12,000, and of the reserve field of Gettysburg, exclusive of his cavalry. The absurd estimate of Professor Bates that the 105,000 reported by Hooker had been reduced to only 72,000 betweeand there must have been a loss of as many more in killed and wounded; in fact, Bates puts the loss in those two corps at about 10,000. Butterfield says that on the 3,000 or 4,000. We may, therefore, assume that it was fully 4,000 strong. Bates, the State historian of Pennsylvania, says: When Howard came up he left oneng that brilliant charge by my two brigades that does them great injustice. Prof. Bates' description of that charge contains some of the finest writing in his book,ready in position, and I saw that they started promptly at the signal, and Professor Bates is not far wrong when he says they moved with the steadiness and precision

was in making such a remark will abundantly appear from the facts I have already given in my Review, and the statement of Bates in regard to the precautions taken by Steinwehr, whose division, of 4,000 men, occupied the heights immediately confront The article now given under the sanction of his name quotes partly from the preliminary report given in the Appendix to Bates' History of the Battle of Gettysburg and partly from the detailed report; but it appears that he thinks the latter was wrhe First and Eleventh corps, which were adjacent to him, when he succeeded in repulsing them. In his official report, Bates' Battle of Gettysburg, page 240, Meade says: An assault was, however, made about eight P. M. on the Eleventh corps,ade by my two brigades described in my Review. That attack began sooner than Meade states. It began about sunset (see Bates), and my brigades were compelled to retire probably about or a little after 8 P. M. It will be seen that there is a very
