Pope's first duty was to prevent the concentration of all the Coone gun, mired in the mud while withdrawing. Pope retired across the Rappahannock and Lee concenthe artillery sustaining its full proportion. Pope's problem was now to prevent the union of Longsantry in September, 1861. Its service included Pope's campaign in Northern Virginia, beside the Marness had set in. The Federal army retired.

Although General Pope's army operated between the Confederates and Washington, there was a great feeling of uneasiness on account of the inadequacy of the works, and the fact that the garrison had been reduced to add to Pope's field-army. But nevertheless they det

Yet, despite the experiences of this campaign, the lesson was not fixed in the minds of the combatants. The former schools of military teaching still showed their effects. In the campaign between Lee and Pope, in 1862, but little use was made of field-works, and at Antietam Lee fortified only a part of his line, though strictly on the defensive. But Antietam evidently taught the lesson anew, for we find that same Confederate army at Fredericksburg with lines that defied the efforts of the assailants as effectually as permanent fortifications could have done. The manner of construction of these works of hasty entrenchment usually was this: The men, deployed in a line of Confederate Artil

At the same time, more guns were ordered to be placed on the Drewry's Bluff defenses, as well as on the other works along the south side of the James. The works of Petersburg were strengthened also. When Lee started for the Rapidan to enter on the campaign against Pope, all the troops of the Army of Northern Virginia were withdrawn from the fortifications of Richmond, and relieved from garrison duty and from the work of construction by the troops of General D.
