As soon as I had delivered the order to General Battle, hearing the rest of our division become engaged, in obedience hem all good-bye, and spent the night at division Headquarters, General Battle being in command. Moved at four yesterday morning to our old p, the Yankees fired into the rear-guard, which was two regiments of Battle's brigade, under General Ramseur himself, and that started the demo's Hill, getting there just in time to hear General Ramseur and General Battle speak. They informed the troops that reinforcements were coming, Kershaw's division and Rosser's cavalry brigade, and General Battle delivered two very good speeches, one to his brigade and one to Generaes's.

G. Coward. Battle's brigade comprised the 3d, 5tBattle's brigade comprised the 3d, 5th, 6th, 12th and 61st Alabama regiments; Cook's brigade, the 4th, 12th, 21st and 44th Georgia; Cox's brigade, the 1st , 2d, 3d, 4th, 14th and 30th North Carolina; Grimes's brigade, the 32d, 43d, 45th and 53d North Carolina regiments and the 2d North Carolina battalion, as large as some of the regiments. There were thus twenty reg(1887), of the Southern Historical Society Papers, containing the paroles of the army of Northern Virginia (pp. 237-271), we shall find that there were paroled in Battle's Alabama brigade, officers, 33; rank and file, 330; in Cook's Georgia brigade, officers, 28; rank and file, 320; in Cox's North Carolina brigade, officers, 51; r
