General James Longstreet, From Manassas to Appomattox, Chapter 17: preliminaries of the great battle. (search)
r the pass was lost and the troops were well out of fire of the pursuers. General Semmes came to his aid, with his staff, but could accomplish nothing until he drew two of his regiments from Brownsville Pass and established them with a battery as a rallying-point. General McLaws reformed his line about a mile and a half south of the lost gap, and drew all of his force not necessary to the bombardment at Harper's Ferry to that line during the night. Under cover of the night, Lieutenant-Colonel H. Davis, at the head of the Union cavalry, left Harper's Ferry, crossed the Potomac, marched up the left bank, through Sharpsburg, and made good his escape, capturing some forty or fifty Confederate wagons as they were moving south from Hagerstown. We left McLaws in possession of Maryland Heights, on the 14th, with his best guns planted against the garrison at Harper's Ferry. The Potomac River was between his and Jackson's and Walker's forces, and the Shenandoah divided Jackson's and

Among the commissioned officers wounded at this time, was the acting Major, Captain Kaga, from Sidney, Ohio. Two balls struck him near the shoulder, breaking the collar-bone, and inflicting such injuries as, it is feared, will prove fatal. The Twenty-third Indiana, when ordered to fall back to the main column, found itself on an elevation between two ravines. Their commander, Colonel Davis, extricated them from this position in an admirable manner. Any but veterans would have scattered in confusion, on finding themselves so totally at the mercy of an enemy three times their numerical strength, but the Twenty-third were undismayed, and retreated without showing their backs to the enemy. The casualty list of the Indiana boys in this battle is very great. The fight on the left was growing desperate. The Twentieth Illinois had fired forty rounds of cartridges, and still

y-six garments, which were forwarded to the army in eleven boxes. The other East Cambridge organization was called the Soldiers' Relief Association, and numbered three hundred and sixty members who were attached to different religious societies. This society was organized in 1862, and was joined by the members of the other society which was then disbanded. The officers were Mrs. J. R. Knight, president, Miss H. E. Reed, recording-secretary, Miss Mary Parmenter, correspondingsecretary, Miss H. Davis, treasurer. They raised in money two thousand nine hundred and eighty-nine dollars and sixty-four cents, and forwarded to the front twenty-seven boxes of clothing and other useful articles. The Cambridgeport Soldiers' Aid Association was organized by a union of the ladies of the different religious societies in that part of the city in 1864. The officers were Mrs. J. M. S.

e to the Secretary of the Treasury. This is an error, as we learn. The money was offered, for defence, without interest, to be repaid at the convenience of the Government, by Mr. S. Hart, a most patriotic and popular citizen of Ei Paso, Texas; and his proposition to advance the $200,000, and, if necessary, have it doubled and more than doubled by his friends, was made directly to the War Department. Mr. Hart, we believe, is now one of the Commissioners of Texas to New Mexico, &c. President Davis has issued a requisition for 6,000 troops, viz: 2,000 from Louisiana; 1,500 from Mississippi: 1,500 from Alabama; and 1,000 from Georgia. The destination of these troops is Pensacola, and the object to take Fort Pickens, if it is not surrendered under the demand of the Government of the Confederate States. A number of the troops from Mississippi and Louisiana have by this time probably arrived at Pensacola, and the others are on their way or under marching orders. The Savannah Re
