of the fight. My recollection of the time of Hood's arrival is concurred in by fellow-prisoners with whom I have recently corresponded. They say, 10 A. M., and the woods were full of the enemy's troops at 11 o'clock. General Lee's headquarters during the 29th and 30th were on the elevation between Pageland lane and Meadowville lane [see p. 473], a few hundred yards west of us. When he moved on the 31st, the band stopped and played Dixie for us in good old Southern style. William R. Houghton, attorney-at-law, of Hayneville, Alabama, writes to the editors as follows: I belonged to Toombs's brigade of D. R. Jones's division, and we were ready to march from the eastern end of Thoroughfare Gap at daylight on the morning of the 29th of August, but other troops filing past occupied the road, so that we did not move until a little after sunrise.

[See pp. 709, 716.] There is in Pittenger's book an express assumption not adopted in the Mitchel biography, that this project was a part of a comprehensive plan of invasion devised by Mithel, but it rests on no evidence whatever. In moving upon Huntsville Mitchel was totally unprepared for the sup
tler to say that H men enlisted in this regiment he (Butler) would take special care that their families were supported, and that the regiment should never go out of the department. There is great mortality among the negro troops; and the Macon House, once a well known hotel in Portsmouth, has been converted into a hospital for them. Regiments of negroes, numbering at their organization 1,000, are now reduced to six hundred. Those is North Carolina have suffered as severely. Wm. R. Houghton, a citizen, was arrested for appearing in Federal uniform. He had been confined in Fort Norfolk for having a Confederate Major's commission in his house. He "took the oath" and was released. Among the Court proceedings we see a suit of Geo. H. Merriam, of Norfolk, against Wm. Webster, of Newport News, for $14, 1000. The property of Webster had been attached. The remains of Sanborn, the Yankee lieutenant killed by Dr. D. M. Wright, had been disinterred and sent North. The p
