y, 1861, and seen now the success of the green Federal troops under General McDowell in the field, and now the stubborn defense of the green troops under that General Jackson who thereby earned the sobriquet of Stonewall. At last Johnston, who with Beauregard and Jackson, was a Confederate commander, strengthened by reenforcementsJackson, was a Confederate commander, strengthened by reenforcements, descended upon the rear of the Union troops and drove them into a retreat which rapidly turned to a rout. The plucky photographer was forced along with the rest; and as night fell he lost his way in the thick woods which were not far from the little stream that gave the battle its name. He was clad in the linen duster which w, at the battle of Fredericksburg. He says: Burnside, then in command of the Army of the Potomac, was preparing to cross the Rappahannock, and Longstreet and Jackson, commanding the Confederate forces, were fortifying the hills back of the right bank of that river. Brady, desiring as usual to be in the thick of things, undert
f the Rappahannock, just before the battle of Chancellorsville. Action, movement, portraiture are shown. We can hear the officer standing in front giving his orders; his figure leaning slightly forward is tense with spoken words of command. The cannoneers, resting or ramming home the charges, are magnificent types of the men who made the Army of the Potomac--the army doomed to suffer, a few days after this picture was taken, its crushing repulse by the famous flanking charge of Stonewall Jackson; yet the army which kept faith and ultimately became invincible in the greatest Civil War of history. Within sixty days after the Chancellorsville defeat the troops engaged won a signal triumph over the self-same opponents at Gettysburg. ‘Tis fifty years since. The words recall the opening sentence of Scott's famous romance, Waverley, and Scott's reference, like my own, had to do with the strenuous years of Civil War. To one examining the unique series of photographs which were s
e first with the most men, was often skilfully performed on both a large and small scale. Thus, Johnston joined Beauregard at Bull Run in time to win the battle; Jackson alternately attacked the divided forces of his opponents and neutralized their greatly superior forces, and finally joined Lee for another campaign; Longstreet jo been reached, and the Appomattox campaign gives the only entirely successful instance in about one hundred years of military history. The campaigns of Lee and Jackson were models of their kind. Napoleon has said that the general who makes no mistakes never goes to war. The critic of Lee finds it hard to detect mistakes. No ge Appomattox accomplished the desired result, but with severe losses, it is true. After all is said, the subject may be narrowed down to the statement that Lee, Jackson, and perhaps Johnston handled inferior forces with as great skill as any commanders since Hannibal and Napoleon. On the other side it was also an American sold
ositions where they had been held to follow up the Confederate attack, and sending them to the support of the small force that was holding back the Federals. After dispatching troops to threaten the Union left, Johnston and Beauregard galloped at full speed to the scene of the battle. They arrived about noon — at the moment when Bee's brigade was fleeing across the valley from the hail of Federal bullets. As the frightened men were running in the utmost disorder, General Bee, seeing Thomas J. Jackson's brigade calmly waiting the onset, exclaimed to his men, Look at Jackson; there he stands like a stone wall! The expression spread to the army and to the world, and that invincible soldier has since been known as Stonewall Jackson. Beauregard and Johnston found it a herculean task to rally the fleeing men and re-form the lines, but they succeeded at length; the battle was renewed, and from noon till nearly three o'clock it raged with greater fury than before. The fight was chiefl
The fall of Fort Henry and Fort Donelson Henry W. Elson Iron-clad on a river. The first clash west of the Mississippi: Camp Jackson, St. Louis, Missouri, May, 1861 Near here the citizens of St. Louis saw the first blood spilled in Missouri at the outbreak of the War. By order of Governor Jackson, a Camp had been formed in the western suburbs of the city for drilling the militia. It was named in honor of the Governor, and was in command of General D. M. Frost. Captain Nathaniel Lyon was in command of the United States troops at the Arsenal in St. Louis. Lyon, on May 10th, marched nearly five thousand strong, toward Camp Jackson, surrounded it, planted batteries on all the heights over-looking it, and set guards with fixed bayonets and muskets at half cock. Meanwhile the inhabitants of St. Louis had gathered in great crowds in the vicinity, hurrying thither in carriages, baggage-wagons, on horses and afoot. Many of the men had seized their rifles and shotguns and h

Commander Henry Walke The Carondelet--first to run the gantlet at Island no.10 then handed them over to the Government and waited for his pay until after they had won their famous victories down the river. Their first commander was Andrew H. Foote, who was called the Stonewall Jackson of the West. He had won fame in the waters of the Orient and had spent years in the suppression of the slave trade. Like Stonewall Jackson, he was a man of deep religious principles. On the Sunday after the fall of Fort Henry he preached a sermon in a church at Cairo. The next year the aged admiral lay sick in New York. His physician dreaded to tell him that his illness would be fatal, but did so. Well, answered the admiral, I am glad to be done with guns and war. We must get to our story. Fort Henry and Fort Donelson had fallen. General Polk had occupied Columbus, Kentucky, a powerful stronghold from which one hundred
is army did not escape the eagle eye of the Confederate general, Joseph E. Johnston, who believed the time had now come to give battle, and perhaps destroy the small portion of the Union forces south of the river. Meanwhile, General Stonewall Jackson, in the Shenandoah, was making threatening movements in the direction of Washington, and McDowell's orders to unite with McClellan were recalled. The roads in and about Richmond radiate from that city like the spokes of a wheel. One of thesete the bridges and build entrenchments before advancing. This delay gave the Confederates time to reorganize their forces and place them under the new commander, Robert E. Lee, who while McClellan lay inactive effected a junction with Stonewall Jackson. Then during the Seven Days Battles Lee steadily drove McClellan from his position, within four or five miles of Richmond, to a new position on the James River. From this secure and advantageous water base McClellan planned a new line of advan

The presence of Banks compelled Jackson to withdraw to Woodstock, fifty miles south ods hastened to his station at Winchester, and Jackson, on the 23d of March, massed his troops at Keat Kernstown was therefore a real triumph for Jackson, but with his small force he had to keep up tcClellan was approaching from the North. But Jackson, on May 23d and 25th, surprised Banks' forceso brigades were now ordered to cooperate with Jackson. These reenforcements were badly needed. Scpitately to rejoin Fremont. The swift-acting Jackson now darted at Banks, who had fortified himself at Strasburg. Jackson stopped long enough to be joined by Ewell. He did not attack Strasburg, bles away.

The first night he bivouacked in the pine wictory was of little use to the Federals, for Jackson on the morrow, having executed one of the flaas a strategist. Word had been despatched to Jackson in the Shenandoah to bring his troops to falleral Whiting north to make a feint of joining Jackson and moving upon Washington. The ruse proved d McClellan received no more reenforcements. Jackson now began a hide-and-seek game among the moun June 26th, had been set by General Stonewall Jackson as the date on which he would join Lee, and tched the greater part of the night. For once Jackson was behind time. The morning hours came and at Beaver Dam Creek convinced McClellan that Jackson was really approaching with a large force, aned in the nick of time, for at noon Stonewall Jackson opened fire upon Richardson's division and a Union troops were there to prevent it.
