the great question was how to get that gun in. Finally some adventurous spirits, being inspired by the promise of a furlough, crept at night to the front, fixed a strong rope around the muzzle, and so dragged it in in triumph. In this action the artillery was specially well served, officers encouraging the men, both by their presence and example. One battery to the south of the mine was handled with a degree of gallantry which challenged all honor. It was here that Lieutenant Colonel Frank Huger, of South Carolina, a young officer of great promise and of high personal courage, with his own hands worked one of the guns throughout the fight. The sharpshooters in this battle sustained heavy losses, having not only skirmished with the enemy during the entire evening, but also participating in the attack with the main line. The extent of the enemy's losses is known; and the battle itself lives, alone of Confederate victories, on the canvas of John E. Elder, of Richmond, whose pi

In this connection, General Huger said to the city authorities: If we don't give these fellows plenty to do, gentlemen, they will give us plenty to do! And he was right. Baltimore had, at thar their political convictions, were agreed that the only way of keeping them quiet was to organize them into companies, put them under the drillmaster, and, as General Huger suggested, give them plenty to do. To the government, however, this action of the city authorities seemed to be a deliberate note of defiance, and was, probab

This point was also fortified, and held by a strong garrison. On the south side of the James, General Huger held Norfolk, near its mouth, fortified and garrisoned by about ten thousand men, while the James River floated the Confederate vessels Virginia ( Merrimac ), Yorktown, Jamestown, and Teaser.

At the time the enemy's main battle front was behind the railroad, fronting against me but exposed to easy enfilade fire of batteries to be posted on his right flank on the Nine Miles road, while his front against me was covered by the railway embankment. It is needless to add that under the fire of batteries so posted his lines would have been broken to confusion in twenty minutes. General Holmes marched down the Williamsburg road and rested in wait for General Lee. Like General Huger, he held rank over me. General Lee ordered the troops back to their former lines. Those on the Williamsburg road were drawn back during the night, the rear-guard, Pickett's brigade, passing the Casey works at sunrise on the 2d unmolested. Part of Richardson's division mistook the camp at Fair Oaks for the Casey camp, and claimed to have recovered it on the afternoon of the 1st, but it was not until the morning of the 2d that the Casey camp was abandoned.

Hill's at New Bridge, march back near Richmond, across to and down the Darbytown rn of Charles City road, signalling, as we supposed, the approach of Huger's column. To this I ordered one of our batteries to return salutate awaiting the nearer approach of Jackson or the swelling volume of Huger's fire, the President, General Lee, and General A. P.

My command was ordered around through the outskirts of Richmond by the Darbytown road to interpose between McClellan's 29th of June, and stood in front of the enemy all of the 30th, fighting a severe battle in the afternoon.
