Pickett, and the pride and courage of the Ar rest fled in confusion, and what is known as Pickett's charge was over, with no results but the exGeneral Lee? And why was it not done? General Pickett, if he had known it, would never, under tcted anything, and if we had been repulsed as Pickett was, which would not have been at all improbao-operation — it is difficult to conceive how Pickett could have been expected to be successful agae stated previously, the enemy did not pursue Pickett.

General Pettigrew. Swinton and other writers have created the impression that Pickett's division alone reached, in order of attack, the position held by the enemy. s have generally referred to the last effort made by the Confederate troops as Pickett's charge, and in almost every instance have conveyed the idea that no troops but Pickett's division took an active part in that fierce and tremendous struggle. Disclaiming any intention to detract in the least from the glory won on that day bst we can, and make them lie down. At the same time he directed me to see General Pickett at once and have an understanding as to the dress in the advance. I rode to General Pickett, whose division was formed on the right of and in line with ours. He appeared to be in excellent spirits, and, after a cordial greeting and a ple true of other brigades in General Pettigrew's command. It is probable that Pickett's division, which up to that time had taken no part in the battle, was mainly

e. The Stonewall brigade, not having the same protection as the Louisiana brigade, was broken and scattered through the woods. It was then that the second line was ordered forward to retake the position. I do not know how much more of our first line was broken, and I am confining myself to what I know of my own personal knowledge and what I saw with my own eyes. The charge of the Federals on this occasion was not surpassed in gallantry by any that was made during the war — not even by Pickett at Gettysburg. To have passed through such a fire of artillery, which almost enfiladed their line, and to have broken the Stonewall brigade, composed of troops equal to Napoleon's Old Guard, was an act of gallantry not to be surpassed by any troops of any army. As my brigade advanced through the woods to retake the position, the minnie balls were rattling like hail against the trees, and as we debouched into the field through which the railroad cut ran, nothing could be seen between u

hile after ours had ceased. I do not believe a single battery of the enemy had been disabled so as to stop its fire. Pickett's division now advanced and other brigades on his left. As soon as these troops rose to advance, the hostile artillery opened upon them. These brave men (Pickett's) nevertheless moved on, and, as far as I saw, without wavering. The enemy's artillery opposed them on both flanks and directly in front, and every variety of artillery missile was thrown into their raofficers, in quick succession (one from the Major-General Commanding division), gave me orders to move to the support of Pickett's division. My brigade, about twelve hundred in number, then moved forward in the following order from right to left:a regiments. As they advanced, they changed direction slightly to the left so as to cover in part the ground over which Pickett's division had moved. As they came in view on the turnpike, all of the enemy's terrible artillery (that could bear on t

V.: Colonel — On the 19th of October, having partially recovered from my wound received at the battle of the Wilderness, I reported for duty, and assumed command of the troops on the north side of the James river, consisting of the local defence troops, commanded by Lieutenant-General Ewell, Hoke's division, Field's division, and Gary's brigade of cavalry, as well as Pickett's division, holding the lines from the James river to Swift creek. General Ewell's command was in position in the trenches, between the river and Fort Gilmer; General Hoke between the New Market and the Darbytown roads, and General Field took up the line to the Charles City road, both along the line of works which had been thrown up connecting Fort Gilmer with the exterior line, at the Charles City road.

or the line of battle at the date of the report. We find a total of officers and men of 133,708. On the Confederate side, the force operating at Chancellorsville consisted of McLaws' and Anderson's divisions of Longstreet's corps (Hood's and Pickett's divisions of that corps, under Long street, were in the vicinity of Suffolk, on the south side of James river), and Jackson's corps, of A. P. Hill's, Early's, D. H. Hill's under Rodes, and Trimble's under Colston, and two brigades of cavalry urom the fire they were drawing from the enemy. General Jackson then withdrew, and General Lee dictated to Colonel Marshall a long letter to President Davis, giving him fully the situation. In it he regretted he would not have the assistance of Pickett's and Hood's divisions, but expressed his confidence in the good judgment that had withdrawn and kept them from him, and closed with the hope that, notwithstanding all our dangers and disadvantages, Providence would bless the efforts which he wa
