during the war. The Crenshaw Battery was awarded two of the captured guns. Hooker defeated, another idol shattered by Lee, we were destined to meet a new commander of the army of the Potomac when we came up again with our old-time enemy. General Meade had succeeded Hooker. With a rest from fighting from the 3d of May until the 1st of July, we headed for the Potomac for the second time.

We might as well claim that the picket on the flank of Meade's army or captured within his lines, was farthest to the front. Every soldier knows that the front of an army is wherever its line of battle is (whether that line is zigzag or straight), and the opposing troops which penetrate that line are farther to the front, than those which do not. We have shown, we think, conclusively, that the Virginians under Pickett did penetrate the enemy's line on the 3d of July, 1863, in the famous charge at Gettysburg, and that the North Carolinians, under P
