As these armies approached the capital, they dropped the title of armies, and took the names of the corps and divisions which they were afterwards to bear, with few modifications, to the end of the war. The Army of the Potomac became the First corps, Longstreet's, including the army of the Peninsula, which became Magruder's division, and afterwards McLaws's, and then Kershaw's. The Army of Norfolk becoming Huger's division, afterwards Mahone's and then Wright's. The Army of the Valley and the Army of the Rappahannock—the latter having become, on its march to Richmond, A. P.

Hill's—with but few changes in the division organization. The Army of Northern Virginia was composed

With this brigade he continued to share the perils, the privations, and the glories of that hitherto invincible army until, on the 10th of April, 1865, it was, in the language of its illustrious commander, after four years of arduous service, marked by unsurpassed courage and fortitude, compelled to yield to overwhelming numbers and resources.
