ion required. During this winter it was found difficult to obtain arms as fast as we needed them for the new men, and of course we were very glad to take what the department could furnish. Between the first of January and the first of May, General Jackson's corps grew from about twenty-three thousand muskets to thirty-three thousand. These ten thousand arms we obtained from Richmond in small quantities, and they were of different calibres, but the corps was fully armed when it went to Chanceccounts, was Lieutenant William M. Archer, of Richmond, one of the most faithful and efficient officers of the department, and indeed of the army. I recall an instance of the difficulty of obtaining even small supplies. During the winter General Jackson requested me to have the knapsacks of the men marked in white paint. In the active campaign of the preceding summer his men had been compelled to store their knapsacks, I think at Harrisonburg, and it was some months before they saw them ag

ding Third North Carolina that morning, and who was captured in his works, says: Steuart faced by the rear rank and continued to fight inside the lines until a second column attacked him in front, when, finding himself between two fires at short range, he was compelled to surrender. Thus, on the 12th day of May, 1864, in front of Spotsylvania Courthouse, ceased to exist Steuart's brigade, composed of men who had followed various commanders from Manassas, in 1861, the Valley campaign with Jackson, down to Richmond and on through the several conflicts of ‘62, ‘63 and ‘64, not only without spot on their colors, and having the confidence of their leaders, but also complimented and honored for their endurance and heroism. From this day to the closing scene at Appomattox the two North Carolina regiments served with Ramseur's—later Cox's—brigade, of Rodes's division, and the three Virginia regiments were consolidated with the remnants of Jones's brigade, of Gordon's division.

responsible for it, though he had warned and struggled to avert it, Georgia's fortune was his fortune, Georgia's destiny was his destiny, though it led to war. Others who had been influential in bringing about dissolution and the first to take up arms, engendered disaffection, by petty cavils, discouraged when they should have cheered, weakened when they should have strengthened, but the spirit of his devotion never faltered, and through all the stormy life of the young republic, what Stonewall Jackson was to Lee, he was to Davis. If the soldier who leads his country through the perils of war is entitled to his country's praise and honor, no less the statesman who furnishes and sustains the resources of war. Our flag went down at Appomattox. Weakened by stabs behind, inflicted by hands that should have upheld; her front covered with the wounds of the mightiest war of modern times; dripping with as pure blood as ever hallowed freedom's cause, our Confederacy fell, and Liberty stood

ecession programme in the only way in which it could then be fought successfully. Two years before, 13th April, 1830, Jackson had given his celebrated volunteer toast at the celebration of Jefferson's birthday: Our Federal Union; it must be preserved. But it was well understood then that this was aimed at nullification, not at secession. If Jackson ever denied the right of secession, his denunciation fell far short of the more emphatic language of Calhoun. In his celebrated proclamation oclamation, that a resisting State could not retain its place in the Union, would seem to indicate very clearly that General Jackson regarded secession as the only proper remedy. Later experience has shown that secession is but the precursor of war the constitution recognized slavery as a fact which the States exclusively had the right to deal with. Men near to General Jackson and recognized as his mouth-pieces, asserted the right of secession, but denied the right of nullification, because,

Eastwardly from the village, the plateau extended into extensive fields, from which roads ran to Jackson, Clinton, Bayou Sara and Baton Rouge.

and for this interesting chapter of our history.] On the night before the last day's battle at Second Manassas occurred one of the most touching episodes of which I heard. Colonel W. S. H. Baylor [I ought really to call him General, for Stonewall Jackson and R. E. Lee had both recommended his promotion, and his commission had actually been made out when news of his lamented death reached Richmond], one of the most widely known and loved young men in the State, was in command of the famous old Stonewall Brigade, which had the year before won its name and immortal fame on these historic plains. Sending for his friend, Captain Hugh White—son of the venerable Dr. William S. White, of Lexington, Stonewall Jackson's old pastor, and himself a theological student—who commanded one of the companies in the brigade, Will Baylor (as we used familiarly to call him) said to him: I know the men are very much wearied out by the battle to-day, and that they need all of the rest they can get to
