Here, in the action of the 1f what all men felt would be the greatest battle of the war, but General Lee, who had seen him immediately on his arrival, said to A. P. Hillse the youthful soldier, for if ever man weighed his words it was Robert Lee, and Pegram afterwards said to a comrade over the camp fire that k reckoned in every service higher than Brigadier of infantry.

e the chivalrous and sainted Lee, for God has set him among princes, even the princes of his people. It remains for me to say, for the encouragement of the young men assembled before me, that the character which is here portrayed was not one of sudden growth. The church sheltered his early youth, as it shelters you. He was a good boy before he was a good man. Some youths are tempted to think it manly to defy authority, to be impatient, at least, under its discipline.

May the 29th, the division was reunited, and General Picket took command, to the great joy of all. On the 17th June, it took part in driving the enemy from our lines, near Bermuda Hundreds, which was accomplished with the loss of one killed and wounded. Since that time my regiment has been holding one of the most exposed positions on this most importan
