spite of all instructions commenced a random fire into the air on the part of many, at the distant boats on the part of others. And the General adds afterward that no rockets were sent up because positive attacks were not made. From this Colonel Alfred Roman, in his Military operations of General Beauregard, makes the statement that another boat attack was made by General Gillmore's forces against Fort Sumter resulting in utter failure, as had been the case with the former attempt ; and anothethe defense of a narrow causeway swept by both an enfilading and a cross-fire of artillery and small-arms. All things considered, it should be regarded as a very formidable work. With regard to the character of the Confederate defense, Colonel Alfred Roman [ The Military operations of General Beauregard ] aptly says: It is a matter of history to-day that the defense of Fort Sumter and that of Battery Wagner are looked upon as two of the most desperate and glorious achievements of the war.

ole force at Petersburg consisted of Wise's brigade of infantry not more than 1200 strong, two small regiments of cavalry under Dearing. Some light artillery with 22 pieces . . . besides a few men manning three or four heavy guns in position. Roman's Beauregard, II., 229. Besides these, there were some old men and boys, called Local Reserves, who on June 9 under Col. F. H. Archer, a veteran of Mexico, and Gen. R. E. Colston, disabled at Chancellorsville, had acted with great gallantry iwas mistaken in supposing that any large part of Grant's army had crossed the river. He said also that Kershaw's division was already under orders to Petersburg, and he promised to come over in the morning. Chisolm was soon followed by Col. Alfred Roman, but he had to leave his messages, as Lee's staff would not disturb him again. About 3 A. M., Maj. Giles B. Cooke arrived and insisted upon an interview. He brought further statements by prisoners which, laid before Lee, thoroughly satisf
then existing between that officer and his subordinate commanders, and to suggest Longstreet's assault on Knoxville. While returning to Richmond he stopped a day or two in Savannah and Charleston, and made it a point to inspect some of their defensive works and the gallant troops manning them. Unable to go in person to welcome the President upon his arrival in the Department of South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida, General Beauregard sent several members of his staff—among whom were Colonel Roman and Lieutenant Chisolm—to perform that duty and accompany the distinguished visitor to Charleston. He reached there on the 2d of November, at about 1 P. M., and found General Beauregard awaiting him at the depot, or what served as such, with an imposing military escort. There was also a deputation of citizens, appointed by the civil authorities, to offer him the hospitalities of the city. But he declined their invitation, having already promised a personal friend—ex-Governor Aiken— t
y have to evacuate the city very shortly. In that event I shall retire in the direction of Drury's Bluff, defending the crossing at Appomattox River and Swift Creek. G. T. Beauregard, General. He also despatched three of his staff (Chisolm, Roman, and Cooke) successively, at different hours of the day, evening, and night, the last of whom (Major Cooke) reached General Lee's headquarters at about 3 A. M., on the 18th, and, more fortunate than the two who had preceded him, was allowed to see General Lee, and accomplished, in part, his object in seeking him. See, in Appendix, reports of Colonel Roman and of Major Cooke on this subject. Half an hour after Major Cooke's arrival at Drury's Bluff the following telegram was sent from General Lee's headquarters: Drury's Bluff, June 18th, 1864:3.30 A. M. Superintendent Richmond and Petersburg Railroad, Richmond: Can trains run to Petersburg? If so, send all cars available to Rice's Turnout. If they cannot run through,
hould you have to decide between a sacrifice of the garrison and city, you will preserve the garrison for operations elsewhere. Very respectfully, yours, etc., G. T. Beauregard, General. The enemy was now so near the railroad, between Savannah and the river, that General Beauregard was compelled to ascend the stream as far as the bridge—a distance of some fifteen miles— before he could safely take the train, which he did on the 10th, at 1 A. M., being accompanied by Colonels Otey and Roman and Major James B. Eustis. At 5 P. M. on that day he was again in Charleston, and the next morning caused the following order to be published: Headquarters, Military division of the West, Charleston, Dec. 11th, 1864. General orders, No.—: 1. This Military Division having been extended by his Excellency the President to embrace the Department of South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida, it is announced, for the information of all concerned. 2.
