George H. Gordon, From Brook Farm to Cedar Mountain, Chapter 3: through Harper's Ferry to Winchester—The Valley of the Shenandoah. (search)
't do it, and you only trotting. The man belonged to a New York cavalry regiment, so he told me; was a private, and on duty as orderly, carrying despatches to General Banks. It was very amusing to see his look of astonishment and hear his delicate apology as he found he had been chasing a colonel of infantry in the dark,--but, I do think that horse is a stunner, he still insisted. I next tried the horse with those of our cavalry, and found that he beat them all in leaping; indeed, General Hatch, commanding the cavalry, acknowledged there was no horse in his command that could compete with him. His jump was not a flying leap, it was really a jump. He approached the fence or bar slowly, and preferred to do so at a walk; then slowly rising on his hind legs threw over his fore-feet, following with the rest of his body with a muscular energy that would unseat a careless rider. I found I could travel across the country without stopping to take down fences. I have often seen our p

f his men — shot at his post by some expert and remorseless Rebel hunter — lying dead at the station. Once, however, the enemy failing to make the bridge in time, were overtaken by our cavalry, and prisoners were brought into Harrisonburg by General Hatch. One of the Rebel officers, being greatly annoyed at the triumphant tones of our men, turned to rebuke them, at which the storm began to rage with such violence that Hatch ordered the prisoner to maintain silence. While my brigade was encaHatch ordered the prisoner to maintain silence. While my brigade was encamped in the field, I made my own headquarters within the house where dwelt the owner of the domain. She was an elderly matron of very strong secession proclivities, and given to lamentation over the destruction which three thousand soldiers brought to her fields. There were no fences left to divide tillage from pasture, or grain-fields from roads. When her complaints were loudest, I informed her of the capture of New Orleans, of which we had just heard through the War Department; enlightened

valry was tired. Where was Steuart with his three cavalry regiments,--Ashby's, Munford's, and Flournoy's,--to oppose General Hatch with less than one (he had, as it will be remembered, less than nine hundred men at Strasburg).

d any citizen of Williamsport, under the circumstances, have dared to steal him. All search proving vain, I sought General Hatch, who invited me to attend with him, in the afternoon, a review of his cavalry, where, he suggested, in riding between given, the cavalry command gave me three rousing cheers. That's .for your accusing them of stealing your horse, said Hatch, laughing. How the fellow that did steal that horse must have smiled! for the horse was there, but I did not recognizle, destroy a railroad bridge there, and break up communications. But on the seventeenth of July Banks reported that General Hatch, commanding the cavalry, had started on his march with infantry, artillery, and train-wagons, and had at that date suat Culpeper on the 7th from Waterloo Bridge. Pope's cavalry was distributed as follows: General Buford, who had relieved Hatch, was with five regiments posted at Madison Court House, with his pickets along the line of the Rapidan from Barnett's For
