Johnston across the Williamsburg road, and, co-operating with the Fourth North Carolina, charged in the direction of the battery in the redoubt, officers and men acting nobly, but suffering terribly. Although all its field officers and two-thirds of its captains were down, the regiment fought on till night closed the struggle. The loss in the Twenty-third was not so large as in the Fourth, but was severe. Colonel Christie and Lieutenant-Colonel Johnston, writes General Garland, were both disabled while doing handsome service. Maj. E. J. Christian was killed.

The Fifth regiment, Colonel Mc-Rae, then Captain Garnett, was placed on the right of the road, with the Twelfth, Captain Snow, as its support. The Twenty-third, Colonel Christie, was posted behind a low stone wall on the left of the Fifth; then came the Twentieth, Colonel Iverson, and the Thirteenth, Lieutenant-Colonel Ruffin.

General Rodes said of this movement: The enemy was compelled to fall back, and pressing on, Colonel Hall's two regiments (Fifth and Twenty-sixth Alabama), together with the Twenty-third North Carolina, Colonel Christie, carried the heights in magnificent style, planting their flags inside the works.

t was engaged. During General Hoke's absence, from a wound, Colonel Avery had commanded the brigade, and as General Early reports, worthily filled the absent general's place. Although a believer and enforcer of discipline, Colonel Avery's fairness, urbanity and uprightness had drawn his men very close to him. With him had gone other splendid soldiers. Among them the boy colonel of the Twenty-sixth, the noble-souled, lion-hearted Harry K. Burgwyn; the daring, experienced and able Col. D. H.
