to General D. H. Hill under the impression that Hill's division was part of his command, but the division had not been so assigned, and that copy of the order was not delivered at Hill's Headquarters, but had been put to other use. The order sent to General Hill from general Headquarters was carefully preserved. When the Federals marched into Frederick, just left by the Confederates, General Sumner's column went into camp about noon, and it was then that the despatch was found by Colonel Silas Colgrove, who took it to division Headquarters, whence it was quickly sent to the Federal commander. General McClellan reported to General Halleck that the lost order had been handed him in the evening, but it is evident that he had it at the time of his noonday despatch to the President, from his reference to the facts it exposed.

The finding of Lee's lost order. by Silas Colgrove, Brevet Brigadier-General, U. S. V. In reply to your request for the particulars of the finding of General Lee's lost dispatch, Special orders no. 191, and the manner in which it reached General McClellan, I beg leave to submit the following account: The Twelfth Army Corpsn, and Captain John M. Bloss, of Muncie, Indiana. Washington, D. C., June 2d, 1886. note.--Mr. W. A. Mitchell, the son of Private Mitchell, who, as General Silas Colgrove describes above, was the finder of Lee's order, writes to say that his father was severely wounded at Antietam. After eight months in hospital he completdied at his home in Bartholomew, Indiana. As his family were then destitute, some efforts are said to have been made to procure a pension for the widow, but General Colgrove (in a letter to the editor of the Century, dated Washington, November 15th, 1886) states that neither the soldier nor the widow has ever filed a claim for pe

dley T. Johnson says that there is a tradition in Frederick that General Hill was seen to drop a paper in the streets of that town, which was supposed to be the order in question. The Comte de Paris says it was found in a house in Frederick which had been occupied by General Hill. But General Hill informed me, two years after the war, that he never received the order, and never knew of its existence until he read it in McClellan's report. See General D. H. Hill's statement, p. 570; General Colgrove's, p. 603, and the text of the order, p. 664.--Editors. To whatever circumstance General McClellan owed its possession, it certainly enabled him to thwart General Lee's designs for the invasion of Pennsylvania, or a movement upon Washington. But that he obtained all the advantages he might have done will hardly be contended for by General McClellan.s warmest admirer.
