of the Southern Historical Society was endorsed by him as follows: The young gentleman who furnishes this narrative — a private soldier in Huff's, afterwards Griffin's battery, I believe — is a gentleman by birth and education, being connected with highly respectable families, and there is no reason to doubt the, accuracy of hthe Rockbridge artillery, Captain Graham; Third company Richmond howitzers, Lieutenant Carter; the Powhatan artillery, Captain Dance, and the Salem artillery, Captain Griffin. These commands included all the troops engaged during the whole day, I think. The whole force was commanded by Lieutenant-General Ewell, either as commandernever knew). Between Forts Harrison and Gilmer, a distance of nearly half a mile, were stationed Hardaway's batteries, Dance's being the nearest to Fort Harrison, Griffin's next, and Carter and Graham to their left, supported by the Texans and Tennesseans, with the City battalion deployed as skirmishers. General Ewell was with the

Brilliant as this charge was, the enemy, it was plain, were overpowering us by weight of numbers. They had seized a plateau on which stood two wooden houses (Widow Henry's, and the free negro Robinson's) and had placed thereon Ricketts's and Griffin's celebrated batteries. General Beauregard, determined to repossess himself of the position, formed his line for an assault, and his right rushed to the charge, while our centre, under Jackson, pierced theirs. The plateau was won, together with several guns, but the enemy some time afterwards threw forward a heavy force of infantry and dispossessed us again. It was now about two P. M., and the battle still raged furiously on the left, though nothing, save skirmishing and an occasio

At night there was a fearful thunder-storm. Tile rain descended in torrents, and the peals of thunder were, I think, louder and more fr which his regiment is attached. He is a brave man and a good officer. Colonel Harker's brigade has been relieved from duty at the fortifications, and is now encamped near us, on the Liberty road. June, 21 Mrs. Colonel Scribner and Mrs. Colonel Griffin stopped at my tent-door for a moment this morning. They were on horseback, and each had a child on the saddle. They were giving Mrs. Scribner's children a little ride. Attended divine service in the camp of the Eightyeighth Indiana,

It was not long before Griffin met the Confederates; and as Crawford approached the plank road, he met the cavalry coming to the rear, reng on each of these two roads having been made, Crawford was ordered to halt, and informed that Griffin and Wadsworth would attack on the old pike.

ressional Committee on the War, says: I lost a thousand men in less than ten minutes time in taking the heights of Fredericksburg. General Barksdale informed me that just before this final attack was made the enemy sent a flag of truce to Colonel Griffin, commanding the force behind the stone wall, asking permission to take care of his wounded lying in front under our fire, which permission was im- prudently granted by Colonel Griffin, without his knowledge, and that the weakness of the forcColonel Griffin, without his knowledge, and that the weakness of the force at that point was thus discovered, and immediately afterwards the assaulting columns advanced. Then passing around the foot of the hill a portion of the attacking column came up in the rear, capturing Squires' guns (which had been fought to the last minute), and along with them the Captain and his company. The column sent against Lee's Hill did not succeed in carrying it by assault, but was kept at bay until Marye's Hill had fallen, when the position being untenable, the regiments defend

s for his army to move in two columns-Fifth and Sixth Corps from Wilderness Tavern to Parker's Store, where their route intersected the plank road, and Hancock from Chancellorsville to Shady Grove Church. Warren, as a military precaution, threw Griffin's division up the old turnpike toward Orange Court House to protect his moving column, and Ewell, coming down the pike about this time, met and engaged Griffin, and the battle of the Wilderness began, for shortly thereafter Hill became engaged wGriffin, and the battle of the Wilderness began, for shortly thereafter Hill became engaged with a force at Parker's Store. Hancock, whose troops formed Grant's left advance, was stopped, and the heads of his columns turned toward Parker's Store to meet Hill. Grant discovered that he had Lee's army on his right marching flank and would have to fight in the Wilderness. As Ewell and Warren became more engaged, lines of battle were formed-Warren in the center and Sedgwick on his right, and afterward Hancock on his left. On the plank road Hill's left did not connect with Ewell's

d as had been intended, would have resulted in the fall of Petersburg. Ledlie was in the rear ensconced in a bomb-proof protected angle of his own works, his division in the crater, and his orders to move forward were not obeyed. It was as utterly impracticable to reform brigades outside of the crater under the severe fire of front and rear as it would be to marshal bees into line after upsetting the hive, or to hold dress parade in front of a charging enemy, wrote a Federal officer. Griffin's brigade of Potter's division was advanced, but, meeting a severe fire, fell back in the crater. Every organization melted away, as soon as it entered this hole in the ground, into a mass of human beings clinging to the almost perpendicular sides. The other brigade of Potter's division now advanced, but got no farther than the abandoned traverses and intrenchments; and then Wilcox, with the third and last division of Burnside's white troops, started forward.
