This I witnessed in June, 1862, in his memorable raid around McClellan's army, which was applauded by the civilized world at the time as a brilliant achievement, and pronounced by Napoleon III, then on the throne of France, as a grahe was wholly cut off from them by the Federals on the Chickahominy. There was but one remedy in this trying dilemma, and that was to go forward and pass around McClellan's whole army. But how was this to be done when a river confronted him which was swollen by heavy rains and was no longer fordable, and the danger was thickeningie than be whipped. These were his last orders on the battlefield. While dying in yon city the next day, he heard the roar of artillery, and turned to Major McClellan, who was by his bedside, and asked him what it meant. He was told that Gracie's brigade and other troops had moved out against the enemy's rear on Brook turnpik

The evacuation was skilfully performed, and the enemy checked in direct pursuit at Williarning that he was out, sat down at his desk and wrote on a slip of paper, If you don't move, McClellan will dig you out of Richmond, and left it, asking Col. Chilton, I think, to call the General'satening Washington, and causing stoppage of troops then about to leave Washington to reinforce McClellan, and Jackson, by forced marches, was to fall on his right, north of the Chickahominy River, any, for I learned that every division of ours north of the Chickahominy had been thrown against McClellan's right, held by Fitz John Porter, and all had failed; and we soon knew why. He had twenty thse two brigades, under Whiting's command, played an important part in Lee's operations against McClellan in front of Richmond, and continued under Lee until Whiting was selected by the Confederate Go

At the reorganization of the army, in front of General McClellan's position at Yorktown, many officers whose ideas of military discipline were far in advance of the views held by their volunteer soldiers, and more in line with the regular army, were left out, and more sociable and better fellows put in t numerous splendid fights participated in by the cavalry of the Army of Northern Virginia, and the observation applies with equal force to the operations of the commands under Forrest and Morgan and Wheeler further South.
