American Conflict, Vol. II. The collision referred to in the above extract was a cavalry fight at Buckland's Mills, between Stuart and Kilpatrick. Gen. Meade, it is said, felt not a little ashamed and somewhat nettled at the part he had played in this campaign, and would have ordered an advance at once had not a heavy rain rendered Bull Run impassable without pontoons, which were not then at hand. He then determined to make a rapid movement to the left, and before the Rebel commander could gain knowledge of his intentions, seize Fredericksburg and the heights in its rear, with the design of pushing operations against Richmond, from that point

Evil, and Ultimate Atoms, were favorite themes with some of a more philosophic turn of mind. Drills and inspections were not lost sight of in this period. A review of the Artillery Brigade of our corps took place under the observation of Generals Meade, French, and Hunt, December 23d, and again by Gen. French, February 23d. February 6th, orders came to pack up, and the next morning we hitched in, momentarily expecting to depart, but on what errand we then knew not. It seems that Gen. Butlel melody. Having arrived at the place designated, the infantry were drawn up in four lines of a division each, while the batteries were formed in two lines. After some delay Gen. Grant appeared, riding across the field with a numerous staff. Gen. Meade rode forward to receive him, and conducted him to a knoll which commanded a view of the entire corps; then the former took position on the left of the General-in-Chief, while Gen. Hancock sat at his right. In their rear were Sedgwick, Warren,

Our march was directed from Hawes' Shop, or Store, towards Hanover Court House. Gen. Meade's order of May 29. Hawes' Shop was an important junction of several roads, and was contended for most manfully on the 28th instant by three brigades of Union cavalry, under Sheridan, pitted against that of the enemy commanded by Fitz-Hugh Lee aintervals. Heavy firing came up from the left a long distance away. This we now know to have been the attack made upon Warren's corps, near Bethesda Church, by Ewell, who was attempting to turn his left. To relieve this pressure upon Warren, Gen. Meade ordered an attack along the whole line. The order was not received in time to be acted upon by all the corps commanders; but Hancock received it, and with commendable and characteristic promptness sent in Barlow's division, which drove the ene
