house, and get a thicker coat, as he would be absent all night. This was not allowed; but they placed him and James Price (young son of a poor widow) and young Ridgeway (only son of aged parents) in front of the Federal lines. They were then insulted grossly by the officer commanding, without explanation of any kind; and Mrs. Ley, thinking they were going to be shot, rushed towards her husband; but Mr. Lasley and young Price fell dead at the one moment, and from the same volley. Young Ridgeway ran to the woods, but was pursued and shot. Mr. Lasley and young Ridgeway had both taken the oath of allegiance, and were under heavy bonds. Before this crime Ridgeway had both taken the oath of allegiance, and were under heavy bonds. Before this crime was committed the soldiery had taken possession of Mr. Lasley's house, and helped themselves to every thing they needed, had forced the old cook to prepare dinner for them, and destroyed many articles of furniture, etc. These are but mild instances of what the Federal soldiery have done, in various places, to harmless citizens.

erfully rendered during our recent operations. Captain Winn was conspicuous for his gallantry at Salem Church in assisting to rally and re-form promptly one of my regiments that had been thrown into disorder and confusion, and while thus engaged his horse was shot. To Major Goggin, A. A. general to General McLaws, I am also indebted for his gallant and valuable services rendered at the same time and on the same occasion. I also beg to commend to your favorable notice my two couriers, private Ridgeway, of the Eleventh Alabama, and private Brundidge, of the Ninth Alabama: the former had his horse killed at Salem Church. I am, Sir, very respectfully, Your obedient servant, C. W. Wilcox, Brigadier-General, commanding, &c. Report of Brigadier-General Heth. headquarters A. P. Hill's Light division, May 25, 1863.

body. (entitled to the promotion of lieutenant-colonel); Captain Brandigan, Eighth Alabama, leg broken. These four were left, not being able to bear transportation. Colonel Sanders, Eleventh Alabama, and Major Fletcher, of same regiment, each received severe wounds. Captain King, Ninth Alabama (entitled to promotion of colonel), had a finger shot off. It will be seen that of five of my regimental commanders four were wounded in this first day's battle. Of my two couriers, one--Private Ridgeway, Eleventh Alabama regiment--was killed, and the other--Private Brundridge, Ninth Alabama--severely wounded. The conduct of my men and officers was in all respects creditable. After the wounding of four regimental commanders, the other officers who succeeded to command acted with great gallantry and energy. Among these I may mention Lieutenant-Colonel Tayloe, of the Eleventh Alabama regiment; Lieutenant-Colonel Shelley, of the Tenth Alabama, and Lieutenant-Colonel Broome, Fourteen
eing probable that the 20th would cross on the next day, at Alston, General Beauregard was of opinion that, with our small forces then available, we could effect no serious damage to the 15th Federal Corps, and that our line of retreat to Chesterville might, on the other hand, be entirely cut off by the 14th and 20th Corps—thus opening an unobstructed country to the enemy through the State of South Carolina. General Hampton's suggestion, therefore, was not adopted. See Appendix. From Ridgeway, General Beauregard passed on to White Oak, where, on the 19th and 20th, he sent important instructions to Generals Hampton and Stevenson, directing their movements and line of march, and advising necessary measures for the removal of rations at Chesterville. He also forwarded the following message to General Lee: White Oak, Feb. 19th, 1865. General R. E.

est, seven miles from Columbia, on Rice Creek Spring road, Feb. 17th, 1865. Lieut.-Genl. W. Hampton, Comdg. Cavalry: General,—General Beauregard wishes you to inform General Stevenson that, in view of the danger of the enemy crossing Broad River above Wheeler's right, it is deemed best that Stevenson and his command should reach Cookham tonight, between Big Cedar and Little Cedar Creek; and his train, the vicinity of Ridgeway, if possible. Cookham is about eighteen miles from Columbia; Ridgeway, about twenty-five miles. The cavalry will necessarily follow its movements. Delay the enemy as much as possible. I will await at Killian's Station to hear from you. The General wishes you to keep him advised of the enemy's movements. Respectfully, your obedient servant, Jno. M. Otey, Lieut.-Col., and A. A. G.

troops found themselves in one of the most stubbornly contested parts of the field, being pitted against the command of General Sherman, where was found the most stubborn resistance. In the first assault Lieutenant-Colonel Anderson and Major Johnston, of the Third Kentucky, were wounded, and Captains Stone, Pearce and Emerson, Lieutenant Bagwell, commanding company, and Acting Lieutenant White, of that regiment, were killed; while Captain Bowman, Adjutant McGoodwin and Lieutenants Ross and Ridgeway were wounded. Later the brigade had a prolonged contest with a heavy force of Ohio and Iowa troops, and drove them with a charge, the Kentucky troops singing their battle song, Cheer, boys, cheer; we'll march away to battle, and driving everything before them. The loss was heavy, Captains Ben Desha and John W. Caldwell being severely, and Adjt. Wm. Bell, of the Ninth Kentucky, mortally wounded. In the same regiment Capt. James R. Bright, Lieut. J. L. Moore and R. M. Lemmons were wounded.

Having sepher husband and share his fate, but was caught and held by one of the young ladies present just as Mr. Lasley and young Price fell, having been shot dead. Young Ridgeway rushed into the woods, which were near by, but delayed his death only a few accords for he was pursued and instantly killed. It is proper further to say that Mr. Lasley had taken the oath of allegiance and was under a heavy bond; that young Ridgeway was also under oath and bond, and that Price was only fifteen or sixteen years old. Before this crime was committed, it was alleged that the soldiery had taken possession of Mr. Las ley's house — had helped themselves to everything they
