thus nearer to Harper's Ferry, and in front of McLaws. Had McClellan instantly put his whole army inder Anderson, had been sent to cooperate with McLaws against Maryland Heights and Harper's Ferry. was Howell Cobb, with two or three brigades of McLaws's division, whereof the larger portion was som the crest, with an abatis in its front; where McLaws's advance appeared and commenced skirmishing ttomac. The morning of the 14th was spent by McLaws in cutting a road practicable for artillery toand of course more exposed to and commanded by McLaws's guns on Maryland Heights. At 9 P. M., dered sadly in not hurling his army at once on McLaws, and thus cutting his way swiftly to the Ferryost celerity, through Crampton's Gap, crushing McLaws and relieving Harper's Ferry. But there was sfront, while the fresh forces under Walker and McLaws advanced with desperate energy, seconded by Ealry nor A. P. Hill's division; and perhaps not McLaws's. The Richmond Enquirer of the 23d (four days[12 more...]
ecome one. Here Lee soon appeared from Fredericksburg, with the divisions of McLaws and the rest, of Anderson's own. Jackson, with those of A. P. Hill and Rhodes (e (5 P. M.), Lee — the fighting around Chancellorsville being over — had thrown McLaws this way, with orders and men to stop Sedgwick's progress; and they did it. The fight continued till dark; but the enemy were on high ground, and held it; McLaws now taking command against us, with his force continually augmenting. Being the asned; and, to make that, the enemy during the night massed a heavy force against McLaws's left, in order to establish communication with Hooker along the river road. Anderson moved rapidly to the support of McLaws, and reached the church about 12 M., having marched 15 miles. Gen. Lee having arrived on the field, ordered Anderson tg, in rear of the enemy). The enemy having weakened his left, in order to force McLaws and gain the river road, Gen. Lee massed a heavy force upon this weakened part
annock, when Lee put his columns in motion up the southern bank of that river. McLaws's division of Longstreet's corps led June 3. the march from Fredericksburg, h was stretched considerably across the Emmitsburg road; the divisions of Hood, McLaws, and Pickett posted from right to left. Hill's corps, including the divisions different brigades: On the extreme right of Anderson's division connecting with McLaws's left, was Wilcox's brigade, then Perry's, Wright's, Posey's, and Mahone's. Atment, the enemy was driven back upon the main line upon the crest of the hill. McLaws's and Hood's divisions made a desperate assault upon their main line; but, owinfirst Fredericksburg fight, as they did on that portion of the field over which McLaws's troops fought. While the fight was raging on our right, Wilcox and Wright, oow had the key to the enemy's stronghold, and, apparently, the victory was won. McLaws and Hood had pushed their line well up the slope on the right; Wilcox had kept
they felt it. Every brigade but two of our army had been under fire — most of them hotly engaged — while the enemy had several yet in reserve. We had no reenforcements at hand, and could expect none; while Hindman's division (three brigades) and McLaws's (two brigades of veterans, fresh from Virginia) came up during the ,night, and were posted just where experience had proved that they were most needed. And beside, Longstreet himself came up, and took command of their right wing--and he was wohich afforded about ten rounds per man, many regiments would have been compelled to rely on their bayonets. Longstreet was now here, in immediate command of his own corps — Hood having been wounded and had his leg amputated on the field — with McLaws's, Preston's, Breckinridge's, Cleburne's, Stewart's, Hindman's, Bushrod Johnson's divisions — in fact, all but a fraction of the entire Rebel army — swarming around the foot of the ridge whereon Thomas, with what remained of seven divisions
ank and rear of the Rebel column, threw it into utter disorder and rout: one of McCoy's men seizing Brown by the collar and dragging him into our lines, while nearly 1,000 of his men were gathered up as prisoners. Our loss here was but 350, and the enemy's attack was completely foiled. Warren established and intrenched his lines without farther resistance. Gen. Hancock struck the North Anna at the Chesterfield bridge, a mile above the Fredericksburg railroad, where lie was confronted by McLaws's division of Longstreet's corps, mainly across the river, but holding an ugly fortification or bridge-head on this side; which, at 6 P. M., after a vigorous fire from three sections of artillery, was stormed and carried by Pierce's and Egan's brigades Positions on the North Anna. of Birney's division, who swept over the plain on the double-quick, disregarding the heavy fire of its defenders, swarmed over the parapet, and drove out the garrison, capturing 30, with a total loss of 150. R
t; whereupon, Ward's division charged directly on the retreating foe, capturing 3 guns and 217 prisoners, of whom 68 were wounded; while 108 of the enemy's dead were buried by Williams on the field. Jackson's division was now sent up on the right of Ward, and two divisions of the 14th corps on the left: while Kilpatrick, massing his cavalry farther to the right, was directed to feel for the road to Goldsborough. He had gained that road with one brigade, when he was vehemently assailed by McLaws's Rebel division, and pushed back, fighting gallantly; until, at length, our whole line advanced, driving the enemy within his intrenchments and pressing him there till night fell, dark and stormy; under cover of which he retreated, taking the road not to Raleigh but to Smithfield. Slocum's loss was 77 killed and 477 wounded (no prisoners)--which may or may not include that of Kilpatrick. The enemy's was probably about the same. Ward's division made a show of pursuing the enemy; while the
