Southern Historical Society Papers, Volume 7. (ed. Reverend J. William Jones), The battle of Williamsburg--reply to Colonel Bratton. (search)
The battle of Williamsburg--reply to Colonel Bratton. By Colonel D. K. Mcrae. Wilmington, N. C., June 3d, 1879. Rev. J. William Jones, Secretary, Richmond: My Dear Sir-The June number of the Southern Historical Society Papers, being volume VII, No. 6, of the series, has been placed in my hands by a friend, who called my ound General Hill with the two regiments in the woods near the opening, and delivered my message; when General Hill said: Boys, do you hear that? Let us go to Colonel McRae's relief. But in a moment after he said: No; go and tell him to draw off his men as he best can. My Adjutant returned in a very few moments, but he was delayed. It is very certain that if a sacrifice was needed for the cause, the lot could not have fallen more appropriately than on the brave and faithful men and officers of the Fifth North Carolina regiment who fell upon that field. D. K. McRae, Colonel Fifth North Carolina, Commanding Early's Brigade, May 5, 1862, at Williamsburg.
