ers pertaining to those stirring scenes.] The January and February numbers of the Southern Historical Society Papers contain accounts of the attack, defence and capture of Fort Gregg, April 2, 1865, called at the time Battery Gregg. The first mentioned number has the report of Brig.-Gen. James H. Lane, accompanied by several letters: one of his own addressed to myself, and one from each of the following named officers of his brigade, Lieut. Geo. H. Snow, Lieut. F. B. Craige, and Lieut. A. B. Howard, of the Thirty-third North Carolina, and one from Lieut. D. M. Rigler, Thirty-seventh North Carolina regiment; there is also a short extract from a letter of Col. R. V. Cowan, Thirty-third North Carolina, addressed to Gen. Lane, refering, as do the other mentioned letters, to this fight. In the February number, the editor refers to what is stated in the previous number, and that all may be heard and with the view of getting at the truth, publishes an account of this affair, from a

in going into Pennsylvania. He repeatedly stated that in consequence of the absence of Stuart with the cavalry he was unaware of the near proximity of the Federal army, and when Hill reported a large force of infantry in his front on July 1st, did not believe it. It was only the fight of that afternoon that convinced him that Meade was near at hand, and he then deemed it injudicious to decline battle. The Confederates would probably have been successful: 1st.-Had Ewell and Hill pushed Howard's broken troops over the top of Cemetery Hill on the first day. 2d. Had Longstreet reached the field earlier on the second day and secured and held Round Top. 3d.--Had Ewell made his attack in the afternoon of the second at same time as Longstreet, instead of later, and then not piecemeal, so that Early was beaten back before Rodes was ready to support him. 4th. Had Longstreet and Hill attacked early on the third, as was first designed, while Ewell was engaged. 5th. Had Ewe

ys: The Confederates would probably have been successful-first, had Ewell and Hill pushed Howard's broken troops over the top of Cemetery Hill on the first day. He then assigns four other ce that it was fully 4,000 strong. Bates, the State historian of Pennsylvania, says: When Howard came up he left one division under Gen. Alex. von Steinwehr upon this hill, with directions to hettysburg on my own responsibility. I made a forced march, and arrived there about the time General Howard had taken position on Cemetery Hill. I found his troops well posted in a secure position onWarren, in his testimony, speaking of his arrival a very short time after Hancock, says: General Howard was then on Cemetery Ridge with our division. General — Buford's cavalry was all in line of steadiness and precision of parade. He further says: As the rebels came within range, Howard's infantry, who had lain completely protected by the stone wall, poured in volley after volley,

nd Top Hill, and they had a very desperate fight to hold it. During all the forenoon the bulk of Meade's troops which had arrived were massed on the right (enemy's), as Meade contemplated an attack from that flank-Hancock's corps connected with Howard's, and Sickles was on the left of Hancock, but he did not go into position until the afternoon. On page 405, Hancock says: I was placed on the line connecting Cemetery Hill with Little Round Top Mountain, my line, however, not extending to Round Top, probably only about half way. General Sickles was directed to connect with my left and the Round Top Mountain, thus forming a continuous line from Cemetery Hill (which was held by Gen. Howard) to Round Top Mountain. These arrangements were not made until the morning was considerably advanced. On page 331, Meade after stating his purpose to make an attack from his right says: Major-General Slocum, however, reported that the character of the ground in front was unfavorable to ma

om the pickets towards Madden's that the enemy was moving a large infantry force in that direction. Leaving Chambliss in front of the enemy where I was, I marched the remainder of the command, Fitz. Lee in advance, directly to Madden's, where we pierced the enemy's column while it was marching, and scattered it, taking possession of the road and capturing a number of prisoners, which enabled us to develope their strength and designs, as we captured prisoners from three army corps--Eleventh (Howard's), Twelfth (Slocum's), Fifth (Meade's); and soon after learned that the column had marched direct for Germana ford. These items were telegraphed to the Commanding General. Colonel J. Lucius Davis, near Beaver Dam, had been telegraphed early that day to move his force at once to occupy and hold the Rapidan fords, but I had no assurance that the order would be obeyed with sufficient promptness to accomplish the object; and as there was no cavalry on the left flank of the main army, it was

in the possession of the committee: As well as I recollect, in November, 1865, I went in company with a friend to see General Howard at his headquarters, in Charleston, on matters of business. Before we left, the conversation turned on the destruction of Columbia. General Howard expressed his regret at the occurrence, and added the following words: Though General Sherman did not order the burning of the town, yet somehow or other the men had taken up the idea that if they destroyed the capitalf on our way home talked the mater over, and could not but be struck by the two following facts: First, that although General Howard said that General Sherman did not order the burning, he did not state that General Sherman gave orders that the city reference was previously made (Mrs. L. S. McCord), at the request of a friend having undertaken to present a paper to General Howard, sought an interview with that officer--second in command of the invading army — and found General Sherman with him.

in front of Atlanta. These facts were obtained from Captain Buell, a captured officer of Major-General Howard's staff. On the night of the 31st the following dispatch was received in duplicate fro his report (supra), and he is confirmed by General Sherman, who shows, among other things, that Howard's army had reached the position near Jonesboroa in the evening of August 30th, and that in the ms known, the context furnishes its own commentary. Now, according to the text, the arrival of Howard's army at Jonesboroa on the 30th of August was the signal for general battle.

ive vision by the supposition that the immense and imposing numbers of the enemy had, by comparison with the small number of the garrison, so dwarfed his visual organs that he could only see the small number of my command he mentions. Lieutenant A. B. Howard (same No., page 25) states as follows: I fully concur with Lieut. Snow in his statements concerning the number of men from Harris's brigade. I am pretty certain that there was only one officer, instead of two, from that brigade; histhe enemy, as Lieutenant Rigler states, but held the position until ordered to retreat by General Wilcox, through his adjutant, Captain Glover. However, I must give Lieutenant Rigler credit for eye-sight a little better than Lieutenants Snow and Howard, for he thinks he saw twenty five men of Harris' brigade. In the same number, page 22, in a letter to General Wilcox, late his division commander, General Lane says. You may not be aware that Harris's brigade has been given in print all the c

k. These were accordingly sent, and I immediately commenced the passage of the creek, having previously ordered my brigade under arms. A few minutes after crossing, my advance guard captured a prisoner, who represented himself as belonging to Howard's corps; from him and others of the same corps, captured soon afterwards at a picket post, I learned that this corps had passed the point toward which my advance was directed, viz: the junction of the Chattanooga and Brown's Ferry roads, and was bama) under arms. In half an hour I received orders to move across the bridge across Lookout creek. After crossing the creek we had not advanced very far before the pickets captured a prisoner, apparently very drunk, who reported he belonged to Howard's corps. After moving up the road a short distance I was ordered to file my regiment to the right in an open field, at the base of a ridge in my front, and form line of battle in one rank. I then sent pickets in front, under Captain Eubanks, wh
