Guard being absent on duty. The church was already crowded with citizens. The metalic case containing the corpse. was borne into the church and up in the centre aisle to the altar, the organ pealing a solemn funeral dirge and anthem by the choir. Among the pall-bearers we noticed Brigadier-General John H. Winder, General George W. Randolph, General Joseph R. Anderson, Brigadier-General Lawton and Commodore Forrest. Among the congregation appeared President Davis, General Bragg, General Ransom, and other civic and military officials in Richmond. A portion of the funeral services according to the Episcopal church was read by Rev. Dr. Peterkin, assisted by other ministers, concluding with singing and prayer. The body was then borne forth to the hearse in waiting, decorated with black plumes and drawn by four white horses. The organ pealed its slow, solemn music as the body was borne to the entrance, and whilst the cortege was forming — the congregation standing by with head

ly all the cavalry, of which two brigades had arrived from Southwest Virginia--Vaughan's and McCausland's (late Jenkins'). In lieu of this, Major-General J. B. Gordon's division of infantry was assigned to him, and with Echols' division (Echols' and Wharton's brigades) formed into a corps — so that Early's command at this time consisted as follows: Breckinridge's corps of Echols' and Gordon's divisions, Early's corps of Rodes' and Ramseur's divisions, with a corps of cavalry commanded by General Ransom, the constitution or numbers of which I cannot give accurately. There were W. L. Jackson's brigade, McCausland's brigade, Vaughan's brigade, Imboden's brigade, and a number of smaller organization, the whole being about three thousand cavalry, most of it known as wild cavalry — of the inefficiency of which there was constant complaint and almost daily exhibition. The infantry numbered about eight thousand, and were in the main as good as any in the service — all being inured to fightin<

gallant friend, General Lane, for a full history of his splendid brigade of North Carolinians. We shall continue the series from month to month until the whole is completed.] Campaign of 1862--organization. After the battle of Newberne, North Carolina, the Confederate troops at that place fell back to Kinston, fresh North Carolina troops were ordered to the same place, and soon afterwards the whole force was divided into two brigades. The first was placed under the command of General Robert Ransom, and the second, composed of the Seventh, Eighteenth, Twenty-eighth, Thirty-third and Thirty-seventh North Carolina regiments, was commanded by General L. O'B. Branch. This brigade was known as the Second North Carolina brigade from the time of its organization until it was assigned to General A. P. Hill's command. It was then designated as the Fourth brigade of the light division until orders were issued directing that all brigades, divisions and corps should be called by the name

On the 15th, General Lee learned that transports and gunboats had arrived at Acquia creek. On the 18th Stuart, forcing his way across the Rappahannock at the Fauquier White Sulphur Springs, in the face of cavalry and artillery, made a reconnoissance as far as Warrenton, reaching there just after the rear of the Federal column had left. His report satisfied General Lee that the whole Federal army had gone to Fredericksburg. He had previously been informed as to Sumner's march. McLaws' and Ransom's divisions, accompanied by Lane's battery of artillery and W. H. F. Lee's brigade of cavalry, were at once put in motion for that place, and the whole of Longstreet's corps followed on the 19th. On the 21st Sumner summoned the town to surrender under a threat of cannonading it the next day. To this General Lee replied that the Confederate forces would not use the place for military purposes, but its occupation by the enemy would be resisted, and directions were given for the removal of the
th, Colonel Marshall thought it safer to refer to as the unknown brigade, which, he suggests, may have been a small command under General Evans, of South Carolina, who did not join the army until after it moved from Richmond. General Holmes's report, made July 15, 1862, states that on June 29th he brought his command to the north side of the James River, and was joined by General Wise's brigade. With this addition, his force amounted to 6,000 infantry and six batteries of artillery. General Ransom's brigade had been transferred from the division of General Holmes to that of General Huger a short time before General Holmes was ordered to join General Lee. The brigade of General Branch had been detached at an earlier period; it was on duty near Hanover Junction, and under the command of General J. E. Johnston before the battle of Seven Pines. These facts are mentioned to account for the small size of General Holmes's division, which had been reduced to two brigades. Ripley's brig
In the latter part of the month he began to incline eastwardly from the mountains, moving in the direction of Warrenton, about which he finally concentrated, his cavalry being thrown forward beyond the Rappahannock in the direction of Culpeper Court House. On November 15th the enemy was in motion. The indications were that Fredericksburg was again to be occupied. Sumner's corps had marched in the direction of Falmouth, and gunboats and transports had entered Aquia Creek. McLaws's and Ransom's divisions were ordered to proceed to that city; on the 21st it became apparent that the whole army—under General Burnside, who had succeeded General McClellan—was concentrating on the north side of the Rappahannock. About November 26th Jackson was directed to advance toward Fredericksburg. As some of the enemy's gunboats had appeared in the river at Port Royal, and it was possible that an attempt might be made to cross in that vicinity. D. H. Hill's division was stationed near that pl
Chester, between Richmond and Petersburg. General Ransom, then in command of the defenses at Richmoause of the warning which Stuart had sent, General Ransom was summoned to Richmond to resist an impehole of Lee's army. At this time Major General Robert Ransom, as before mentioned, was in commanhe capital. It was with this field force that Ransom, as has been related, moved upon Butler and drhe purpose of attacking Butler, to send Major General Ransom with the field force he had for the proDunovant, with a regiment of cavalry not under Ransom's orders, was to guard the space between his t, probably to cover his retiring troops. General Ransom, in an unpublished report, says that, at tfusion, owing to the denseness of the fog. General Ransom's report continues: Having no ammunitid, reporting what had happened, and asked that Ransom's brigade might come to me at once, so that I ammunition, and his renewal of the request for Ransom's brigade, which he had organized and formerly
