The Second Manassas campaign. The 2d Virginia cavalry was assigned to duty as the advance guard of Jackson's corps. McClellan, in his life of Stuart, says: Colonel Munford had seen much service in the Valley under Jackson, and had performed the same duty for him during the battles around Richmond. At Bristoe Station Jackson sent Colonel Munford to surprise and capture the place; this he succeeded in doing, dispersing a cavalry company, capturing forty-three of an infantry regiment, andJackson sent Colonel Munford to surprise and capture the place; this he succeeded in doing, dispersing a cavalry company, capturing forty-three of an infantry regiment, and killing and wounding a goodly number. He participated in the movements that culminated in the capture of Manassas Junction with a large quantity of stores, and when Ewell had to withdraw from Bristoe Station, the 2d and 5th regiments, under Munford and Rosser, covered his rear. On the 28th, 29th and 30th of July, 1862, the fights at Grovetown and Manassas occurred. There were numerous engagements of the cavalry, with only a few reports. In one of these, near the Lewis House, Robertson's br

ettysburg campaign, July 31, 1863. The Fredericksburg field offered little opportunity to the cavalry. In the Chancellorsville fight, at Burnt Furnace, and Ely's Ford, as well as in the delicate task of screening the last flank movement, of Jackson, effective work was done, of which few reports were made. Following these fights, came the battles of Kelly's Ford, March 13, 1863, and Fleetwood Hill of June 9th, 1863. These deserve a fuller notice than can be given. At the last fight, one will be enquiring about it at the end of the 20th century? All students of military tactics, the descendants of these sons of veterans who will be tracing their history back to the men who rode with Stuart and Hampton, and marched under Lee and Jackson. The inexorable law of heredity will quicken this study. Though generations of Virginians have been on the inquiry as to where they came from, giving little attention as to where they may be going.

uld not be better stated than in General Order No. 16, to the Army of Northern Virginia, which says: Let every soldier remember that on his courage and fidelity depends all that makes life worth living, the freedom of his country, the honor of his people and the security of his home. Could they fight for a better cause, and has not such a cause made men superhumanly brave in all ages? Did the North produce in their respective sphere men of such extraordinary military genius as Lee, Jackson, A. S. Johnston, Stuart, Forest and Mosby? No intelligent, candid, Northern man of to-day claims that it did. When I look at the snap judgments on posterity, statues to Northern generals (though most of them are Southern men) in Washington, I wonder how posterity will treat these outrages on justice. They will not find an impartial, competent military historian that will give to one of them, except, perhaps, McClellan, one particle of military genius. These, I believe, to be the true rea

Glenney, of the United States Navy, of a portion of the gunboat fleet in the Missippi river to the Confederate authorities, in May, 1863, has not been heretofore fully given to the public. The correspondence which follows gives all details which are attainable. On the 7th of May, 1863, John J. Pettus, Governor of Mississippi, addressed a letter from Jackson to Hon. Jefferson Davis, as follows: Mr. President,—Allow me to consult you on a matter we deem of great interest. A private citizen, unconnected with the army, some four weeks ago conceived the plan of buying out a considerable portion of the enemy's gunboat fleet. He consulted the Hon. Jacob Thompson in the premises, by whom he was urged to open the negotiations through a suitable agent, with an assurance that the government would approve and indorse the project. The gentleman the<

Steel breast plates As defensive Armors worn by Federal soldiers in the war between the States, 1861-5. It is in evidence that breast plates of steel were extensively worn by Federal soldiers in the War of 1861-5 as defensive armor. In the memorable retreat before Jackson by Banks from Winchester, in May, 1862, which gained for him in supplies abandoned by him and sorely needed by the Confederates, the cheerful tribute of Jackson's Commissary, the editor, then of the foot cavalry, saw in the deserted camp of the enemy, on both sides of the road leading from Winchester, a number of examples of the vest armor of thin plates of steel covered with blue cloth in vest fashion, which had been thrown away in flight by the Federal soldiers. They were of the style of those secondly described in the following article, which appeared in the Times-Dispatch of July 31st, 1904. Two instances of the use of such armor are given by John W.
