wing that delay would mar the success gained, I sent instantly to Beauregard reporting what had happened, and asked that Ransom's brigade might come to me at once to continue the pressure and make good the advantage already gained. Beauregard refused. The ammunition being still delayed, I again begged that Ransom's brigade be sent me, but instead of that there came two small regiments from Georgia. Just as they reported to me the fog lifted, the enemy made a dash on Hoke's left and broke Hagood's brigade; but I threw these two Georgia regiments upon the advancing enemy, checked and repulsed him. After this I saw no more of the Georgia regiments, hearing however that by Beauregard's orders they had gone elsewhere. At this junction, and having been supplied ammunition, and while clearing away some trees that had luckily been felled by the enemy across the road, I got an order from Beauregard to advance by brigades in echelon, left in front. This movement was begun, Gracie's brigade

ction. Two pieces of artillery that had been lost were re-captured by a gallant achievement of the Seventh Connecticut Volunteers, under Lieutenant-Colonel Roman, who drove the enemy back with loss to them of three hundred killed. The woods from which the enemy had been driven took fire under a high wind and their dead and severely wounded were burned. General Terry held his position till night and then withdrew to his place in line. As Brigadier-General Turner's division was retiring, General Hagood, by authority of General Bushrod Johnson of the Confederate forces, sent a flag of truce asking permission to bury their dead and to bring off their wounded, which was granted. On the morning of the 10th I received advices by signal from General Kautz announcing his return with his entire command. He had failed to reach Hicksford, but had burned the Stony Creek bridge, the Nottoway Bridge, and Jarratt's Station, and captured about one hundred and thirty prisoners, with a loss to his

's arrival Beauregard had under his command at Petersburg twenty-two hundred effective men. The line was seven and one half miles long, and these troops occupied three miles of it, leaving four and one half miles undefended. On the Bermuda Hundred front was Jackson's division less Ransom's and Gracie's brigades, giving him thirty-two hundred men there, or a total force of fifty-four hundred on that front and in Petersburg. Hoke's division was ordered to him at 11.30 A. M., on the 15th, and Hagood's brigade thereof reached Petersburg just after Smith's fight at seven o'clock and the capture of the batteries. They were followed by two other brigades within a few hours. At 10.20 P. M. of the 15th, General Beauregard ordered the abandonment of the Bermuda Hundred lines, and the removal of that portion of Johnson's division to Petersburg. Johnson evacuated the Bermuda Hundred line at dawn on the 16th, and arrived in Petersburg at 10 A. M. Thus reinforced, Beauregard had an effective fo
ork, pressed up to the edge of the ditch, and captured a flag which had been cut down by a shell from the navy. It is a mistake, as was at first reported to me, that any soldier entered the fort. An orderly was killed about a third of a mile from the fort, and his horse taken. In the meantime the remainder of Ames' division had captured two hundred and eighteen men and ten commissioned officers of the North Carolina reserves, and other prisoners. From them I learned that Kirkland's and Hagood's brigades of Hoke's division had left the front of the Army of the James, near Richmond, and were then within two miles of the rear of my forces, and their skirmishers were then actually engaged, and that the remainder of Hoke's division had come the night before to Wilmington, and were then on the march, if they had not already arrived. I learned, also, that these troops had left Richmond on Tuesday, the 20th. Knowing the strength of Hoke's division, I found a force opposed to me out

Field at night withdraws from the trenches — Bushrod Johnson relieving him — and moves to the left in support of and co-operation with Hoke. Field did not get out clear until dawn the next morning. June 24th At 7.05 A. M. our artillery opens, followed in a half hour by an advance of Hagood's brigade. The affair is a fiasco, and is not continued. Field leaves a brigade in Hoke's trenches, and returns with the balance of his division to be in reserve. June 25 Usual skirmishing. At night two of Kershaw's brigades — Humphreys' and Kershaw's — are relieved by B. R. Johnson. June 26 The enemy shows some disposition to dig up to us.
