s as Assistant Adjutant and Inspector-General of the Corps. From that time until his capture at the battle of Hatcher's Run (or Burgess's Mill), in the autumn of 1864 (Oct. 27th), the story of Venable's career is the story of that splendid body of horse, whose deeds gave Stuart his imperishable renown. It was an open secret at Cavalry Headquarters, that of all the splendid and capable staff officers there—Heros Von Borcke (of the Madgeburg Dragoons) and Henry McClellan and young The.

Whenever most perlious service was to the fore, Venable was selected for that service, and wherever the Headquarter guidon of Lee's horse blazed in the van of trampling squadrons, there always was Andrew Venable, riding bit to bit, by the bridle-rein of the gay and debonnair Rupert of the South. It is sad, in a way, to his surviving comrades, that the story of his brilliant career will never be told. But it is no worse in this case than in that of Willy P

To make room for Pegram to get in line, Rice's battery was withdrawn a short distance in rear and held in reserve. Pegram and Garnett subsequently changed their relative positions.

The assaulting column was formed under cover of a wood. It consisted of Pickett's division, with two brigades, Kemper's and Garnett's in front and Armistead's as a support in rear.

Before us, one hundred and fifty yards away, moving on like waves of the sea, marched Garnett and Kemper, their battle-flags flashing in the sunlight. The regiments of Armistead, marching in perfect order, with disciplined tread, followed where they led. ng on foot, twenty yards ahead of his brigade, watched and directed our advance. It was not long before the battle was raging in all its fury. The brigades of Garnett and Kemper were in our front, and as we drew near the advance lines Kemper rode back to Armistead, who marched on foot, and said: Armistead, hurry up; I am going ehead, came all along the line the order of charge, and charge we did. From behind the fence the Yankee infantry rose and poured into our ranks a murderous fire. Garnett's brigade and Kemper's had almost entirely disappeared; their brave commanders, their gallant officers, with hundreds of the rank and file, were stretched on the

He afterwards became a distinguished Presbd between Cashtown and Gettysburg. Only three brigades of the division were present, Kemper's, Garnett's and Armistead's.

Of its generals, Garnett was killed, Armistead fatally wounded, and Kemper desperately wounded. Of its colonels of regi Three lieutenant-colonels were killed: Calcott, Wade and Ellis.
