d in the wars of 1854 and 1859, the American mounted troops brought genuine joy to the heart of every true cavalryman, showing by their service and bravery that a better future might yet be in store for the European cavalry. We could not help sympathizing with the rise of the true spirit of knighthood without fear or blame, and with the many gallant deeds which promised better results. we could multiply indefinitely these extracts, but space forbids. From the preface to the work of Cecil Battine, captain, Fifteenth, the King's, Hussars, entitled: The crisis of the Confederacy, and History of Gettysburg and the Wilderness, the following is taken: the History of the American Civil War still remains the most important theme for the student and the statesman because it was waged between adversaries of the highest intelligence and courage, who fought by land and sea over an enormous area with every device within the reach of human ingenuity, and who had to create every organizati

rief comment on The Crisis of the Confederacy—A History of Gettysburg and the Wilderness—Captain Cecil Battine, of the British Army—Longman's (a work which has been favorably reviewed by the press), In estimating the numerical strength of the opposed armies, and their losses in battle, Captain Battine certainly often errs, making the odds against the Confederates less than they in fact were,the conclusion that the South had a population to recruit from as large as that of China. Capt. Battine is a cavalry officer, and thinks that mounted charges —shock-tactics, such as Cromwell made That the three days fighting was more like three separate battle than one is quite true, as Captain Battine says, and also that there were mistakes made by Confederate corps commanders, and lack of non a large scale bayonets ever crossed, minie bullets doing the business. The remarks of Captain Battine on the importance of the army compared to sea power are worthy of deep consideration—Cap

was ordered after a rest to renew the attack. The question recurs, why then, was the battle renewed? The discussion of the question has provoked some criticism upon the conduct of the corps commander and the events of the first day. Captain Cecil Battine, of the 15th Hussars in the English army, who has written a most graphic and intelligent account of the campaign, thinks Hill did not display his usual vim during the first day, and that his actions were characterized by a timidity unusuaressed, opinions may differ. On the one hand he was handicapped by the knowledge that General Lee did not wish a general engagement brought on; this led him to put his troops into action by detachments and exposed him to the criticism which Captain Battine makes; at the same time he was too sturdy a fighter, willingly to give ground, and he must have thought the alternative, in the face of increasing numbers, was between a vigorous offensive and abandoning his ground.

y prevent the main object of his expedition, which was to join the right of the army in Pennsylvania on its march towards the Susquehanna. These observations receive support from the comment of an able and accomplished military critic, Captain Cecil Battine. In his Crisis of the Confederacy, (1905), he says, referring to General Stuart's raid: By the light of what happened, it may now be said that the raid was a mistake, and especially when Stuart found the Federal army to be moving nortd to Culpepper, they could have reached there by rail in a few days, and the moral effect would have been such as probably to turn back some of Hooker's army for the defence of Washington—greatly to Lee's advantage in the approaching battle. Capt. Battine, a military critic of ability, remarks that it would have been worth incurring great risks to have drawn four of these brigades—to comply with this suggestion about Beauregard, p. 166.
