ssas. by W. Roy Mason, Major, C. S. A. On the 23d of August, as our brigade (Field's, of Hill's division) was passing through an oak forest several miles from our starting-point in the morning, General Field and his staff riding leisurely at its head, we were hailed by General Fitzhugh Lee, who, with his staff, had alighted oh behind my horse, for which small act of providence I was amply praised by General Field. I had hoped to get an ambulance to carry these, but was unfortunate enougkson, who stood in the porch of one of the commissary depots, I proposed to General Field to let me go over and ask him if General Longstreet had passed through Thor Pass of Thermopylae in its difficulties. When I made this proposition to General Field, who was an old army officer, he replied promptly: No, sir,--you cannot carry any such message from me to General Jackson. Well, Field, then I am going over to ask on my own account, I said. Then let it be distinctly understood--was

Editors. betokened to the foot-cavalry an infringement of their specialty, demanding emphatic rebuke. Some remnant of the old esprit de corps yet survives, and prompts this narrative. After the check to Pope's advance at Cedar Mountain, on the 9th of August, and while we awaited the arrival of Longstreet's troops, A. P. Hill's division rested in camp at Crenshaw's farm. Our brigade (Field's) was rather a new one in organization and experience, most of us having smelt powder for the first time in the Seven Days before Richmond. We reached the field at Cedar Mountain too late to be more than slightly engaged, but on the 10th and 11th covered the leisurely retreat to Orange Court House without molestation. When, about a week later, Pope began to retreat in the direction of the Rappahannock, we did some sharp marching through Stevensburg and Brandy Station, but did not come up

Field, commanding First Brigade, Light Division: General: I have the honor hereby to report the action of the Forty-seventh Virginia regiment in the recen front of the enemy's battery. This brigade finally broke and ran through ours, throwing it into some confusion. We, however, did not retire until ordered by General Field to fall back in order. This was not very well executed; but a portion of the regiment was immediately rallied by Colonel Christian, and remained with him duri P. Hill, I took command of these two fragments of regiments, and led them into the wood in rear of the position occupied by the brigades of Generals Anderson and Field. Soon I was joined by a portion of Colonel Edwards's regiment, under Major Farrow, and with this portion of the brigade, I occupied the ground as above indicated,

tches of the same campaign.] It was my fortune to command Law's brigade of Field's division, Longstreet's corps, during the greater part of the year 1864--firstvance from Culpeper, two divisions of General Longstreet's corps, Kershaw's and Field's, were in the neighborhood of Gordonsville, having recently arrived from east hat more than thirty thousand veterans recoil before them. But the column of Field was now pressing up, Anderson's Georgia brigade in front. It was deployed on trgia regiments, which had reformed farther to the rear. Shortly afterwards General Field approached and said: this is all of my command that I can find. I was soon reporting directly to the Commander-in-Chief, because I did not know where General Field was to be found, and was communicating knowledge that I thought General Leepany with General Jenkins, at the head of his splendid brigade — the largest in Field's division, and one of the largest in the army — and had almost reached the poi

a mile to the fire of this artillery. Jackson's troops were in two lines — the front occupying the line of the uncompleted railroad, and the second being in a wood about a quarter of a mile or less in rear of the first. My regiment belonged to Field's brigade (of A. P. Hill's division), which was just in rear of the Louisiana brigade and the Stonewall brigade. The former was stationed at a very deep cut of the railroad, and the latter just where the cut ran out, and where there was but littoke of it afterwards, how so many men could march such a long distance under the fire of so many guns and yet so few of them be killed. Our brigade, on the day of this fight, was commanded by Colonel Brockenbrough of the Fortieth Virginia, General Field having been severely wounded on the day before. We had but little difficulty, and lost very few men, in retaking the line, as the enemy had lost very heavily and had become consideraby scattered in their fight with the Louisiana and Stonewal

t 11 A. M., I reached Petersburg with two regiments, the Second and Twentieth, by the train from Richmond. The other two-Seventeenth and Fifteenth-and the rest of Field's division were detained by an accident to the train, and did not arrive till late in the day. Colonel Fairfax received me, and conducted me and the two regiments for some time. His advancing infantry began to show itself in long lines on the opposite side of the creek; but about this time, say 4 P. M., the other troops of Field's division were arriving and getting into position on my right and left and entrenching themselves. The enemy's infantry seeing this, halted; nor did it advance a rode the colt everywhere, frequently in front of the line, up and down, with grand unconcern. I never saw anything like it in the war; it was the talk of all. Field's division in the retreat was some times in the front, some times in the rear. At Farmville it had a sharp affair with the enemy, in which Anderson's brigade made
