General James Longstreet, From Manassas to Appomattox, Chapter28: Gettysburg-Third day. (search)
n successful. Further testimony to this effect comes from another source: In East Tennessee, during the winter of 1863-64, you called me into your quarters, and asked me to read a letter just received from General Lee in which he used the following words: Oh, general, had I but followed your advice, instead of pursuing the course that I did, how different all would have been! You wished me to bear this language in mind as your correspondence might be lost. Erasmus Taylor. Orange County, Va. A contributor to Blackwood's Magazine reported,-- But Lee's inaction after Fredericksburg was, as we have called it, an unhappy or negative blunder. Undoubtedly the greatest positive blunder of which he was ever guilty was the unnecessary onslaught which he gratuitously made against the strong position into which, by accident, General Meade fell back at Gettysburg. We have good reason for saying that during the five years of calm reflection which General Lee passed at Lexington,

had the news become circulated before another messenger arrived confirming the statement of the crossing, but placing the rebel strength at three instead of five hundred. The Ohio is now quite low, and at Leavenworth it spreads out for nearly a mile in width and becomes very shallow. It is at this point that boats frequently run aground during low stages of water. After crossing the river the rebels made no delay, but pushed rapidly forward for a raid into the river counties. Crawford, Orange, and Washington counties lay before them, and into these they pushed as rapidly as possible. They moved in a compact body, throwing out scouts on each side for the double purpose of guarding against surprise and bringing in any good horses that might be found. This portion of Indiana abounds in good horses, and from indications the rebels had been well apprised of this fact. They knew the names of such farmers as had fine stock, and were earnest in their inquiries for a Mr. Braxton, who r

lliam up with a round turn; to tell him that, politically, he is a humbug, and that, practically, he is a felon. Any disreputable corsair can write to Mr. Cass. Gentlemen of a burglarious turn of mind, sent to a seclusion from this wicked world, may open a correspondence with Mr. Secretary. Pens, ink, paper, three-penny stamps are among the commonest and cheapest of conveniences. William may write and so may we. It is in our power to send word to the Secretary that we have subjugated Orange county, in the State of New York, and that hereafter in that bailiwick the jurisdiction of the United States will not be acknowledged. Perhaps our letter, however, would not be telegraphed to the morning papers. Therein William has the advantage of us. Beaten, expelled, exiled, ruined, dethroned, he can still write to the Government of the United States. So much for having re-established Slavery where it had been abolished. The Republic of Nicaragua, according to William, is the Republic
nitions, and supplies, for a determined advance against Bragg's army confronting him at Shelbyville or Tullahoma, the noted and generally successful raider Morgan was preparing, on our right, for a more extensive and daring cavalry expedition than he had yet undertaken. Meantime, a party of predatory horsemen, about 80 in number, claiming to belong to the 2d Kentucky Confederate cavalry, crossed the Ohio from western Kentucky near Leavenworth, Ind., about the middle of June, raiding through Orange, Orleans, and Washington counties; and were trying to make their way back into Kentucky, when they were cornered June 19, 1863. by the Leavenworth home guards, Maj. Clendenin, and the steamboat Izetta, and were soon glad to surrender. Barely one of them escaped to the Kentucky shore, and he was immediately captured. At length, setting out June 27. from Sparta, Morgan crossed July 1-2. the Cumberland, then in flood, near Burkesville — building boats for his trains and swimming hi

Y. It was mustered into service there, and five days later it crossed the Potomac, 930 strong. After two months service in Virginia, the regiment joined the Army of the Potomac at Harper's Ferry. It was placed in Whipple's Division, with which command it was under fire at Fredericksburg, and hotly engaged at Chancellorsville. In the latter engagement it lost 28 killed, 161 wounded, and 15 missing; a total of 204 out of 550 engaged. The reg

Be it further resolved, That, under the benign influence of the Government of the United States, as it now exists over us, our property and lives are secure from the incendiary and assassin, and that we invite the citizens of the State to return to their allegiance to the United States, and enjoy the protection and peace which are now ours.

It will be my endeavor to present a condensed review of the two armies, commencing with last Saturday, sifting, with what ability I may have, the true from the false, using official information. Saturday Morning.--The single house which makes Chancellorsville is at a crossing of roads at the intersection of the Gordonsville plank-road and the old Orange county turnpike. Standing on the piazza and looking south, you look directly down the old turnpike road to Scott's Run. As you face south, the Rappahannock is at your back. It is five miles to United States Ford. In front of the house and west of it, along the plank-road, is a small field; all the rest is woods. In this field is an immense train of artillery, ammunition-wagons, cavalry, ambulances, supplies, hospitals, and troops. Here are General Hooker's headquarters — the grand centre
