10th day of June, 1861, when her First regiment, under Col. D. H. Hill, defeated, in the first serious action of the Civil wa, located near by, under command of that noble old hero, D. H. Hill, was crowded with the flower of the old military organizamp was pitched in Raleigh, and Governor Ellis invited Maj. D. H. Hill, of Charlotte, to take command of it. Major Hill was aMajor Hill was a West Pointer and a veteran of the Mexican war.

Then, says Major Gordon, whosof proportion to its importance. Anticipating attack, Col. D. H. Hill had, with the First North Carolina regiment, thrown upRichmond howitzers; and the First North Carolina, under Colonel Hill, occupied the inside of the works. The companies compo the Federals had found shelter behind and in a house. Colonel Hill called for volunteers from the Edgecombe Guards to burn

Governor Clark and his people, however, were not of a race to succumb to difficulties without a desperate struggle, and they went to work with vigor to do all that their circumstances would allow. At the request of the governor, Gen. D. H. Hill was sent from the army of Virginia that his experience as an artillery officer might be utilized in strengthening the existing fortifications and in the construction of new defenses. J. R. Anderson, a retired soldier of Virginia, was commissioned by President Davis a brigadier-general and sent to the Cape Fear district. With the paucity of material at their command, these officers exerted every energy to aid General Gatlin, who was in charge of the whole department. General Hill, however, could be spared from his command for only a few months, and in November he was ordered back to command a division in General Johnston's army. Gen. L. O'B. Branch succeeded him and was put in command of the forces around New Bern, and Gen. Henr

General Gatlin had said in answer to a request for more troops, The place is of so much importance that could I have done so I should long since have reinforced it, but I am unable to send a soldier without drawing them from parts already insufficiently defended. General Hill had reported to the secretary of war, Four additional regiments are absolutely indispensable to the protection of the island. General Wise had written the authorities, With present means I cannot guarantee successful defense for a day. The place should have been reinforced or abandoned. The defenses on the island consisted of four batteries, mounting in the aggregate 30 guns, all 32-pounders, as follows (see map): Fort Huger, 10 smooth-bore and 2 rifled guns (this battery, being out

Taliaferro and Early formed a third line, and D. H. Hill's division was in reserve. Marye's hill was occupied by the Washington artillery; the reserve artillery was on its right and left. The division batteries of Anderson, Ransom and McLaws, including Manly's North Carolina battery, were stationedpressed back. The Thirty-third, Colonel Avery, checked the enemy for a few moments and even essayed to charge, but found its effort unsupported. The Eighteenth, Colonel Purdie, fell back firing until it reached the woods. The Seventh, Lieutenant-Colonel Hill, had been ordered across the railroad to support a battery, and had acted with gallantry. It was now sent for, but the brigade was pushed out of line before the message was delivered. Thomas then moved his brigade to Lane's support, an

Toward the last of March, General Hill sent General Garnett to lay siege to Washington.

Although Jackson's men had just seen arduous service, they set out with great cheerfulness, and by 5 p. m. had reached the Federal right. To cover Jackson's march, Lee at intervals during the day tapped at the lines in his front, principally where Hancock lay. At 6 o'clock, General Jackson advanced. D. H. Hill's division, under Rodes, held the front line. On the left of this division was Iverson with the Fifth, Twelfth, Twentieth and Twenty-third North Carolina regiments. In reserve just behind Rodes' right brigade (Colquitt's), was Ramseur, with the Second, Fourth, Fourteenth and Thirtieth North Carolina regiments. Trimble's division under Colston composed the second line; in this were the First and Third North Carolina regiments. A. P. Hill's formed the third line. Two of his brigades, La

Gordon was also promoted and assigned to a brigade, made up of the First, Second, Fourth and Fifth North Carolina cavalry regiments. About the same time, says Moore, bold and fearless James Dearing succeeded Beverly Robertson in command of the Second North Carolina brigade. After this memorable campaign in the North, Lee's army took position along the Rapidan. During the invasion of Pennsylvania, Gen. D. H. Hill, commanding the department of North Carolina, was temporarily assigned to the defenses around Richmond. The troops under his command took part in some minor engagements during this time.
