y reached and captured after a brief resistance, about midnight On this same 26th of August, Lee and Longstreet, leaving 6,000 men at Waterloo to guard the trains, followed after Jackson and encamped at Orleans. Apprised of these various movements by his scouts and spies, but not comprehending them or their objects or destination, Pope issued orders which scattered, rather than concentrated, his large army. He first ordered a concentration on Warrenton; Porter, with 10,000 men, reached Bealeton, and Heintzelman, with his 10,000 men, reached Warrenton Junction, on their way to obey this order. The corps of Sumner, Franklin and Cox, from McClellan's army, were that day marching toward Pope, under urgent orders, from Alexandria. Late in the night, when the import of Jackson's movement dawned upon him, Pope again changed his orders, directing his troops to march on Gainesville, to intercept what he supposed would be Jackson's line of retreat; and the different portions of his comman
ing him to battle on the plains of Culpeper; but the Federal commander, who professed to have marched all the way from Gettysburg seeking a battle, promptly retreated during the night of the 10th, to beyond the Rappahannock. Lee then tried by another flank movement, by way of the Fauquier Springs and Warrenton, to bring on an engagement on the plains of Fauquier; but while Lee was halting to ration his troops, Meade hastened to the south side of the Orange & Alexandria railroad, by way of Bealeton, then took the road still farther to the southward, leading through Brentsville toward Alexandria. The two armies now engaged in a race, at times within sight of each other, on opposite sides of the railroad; Meade hastening to escape Lee, and Lee hurrying to intercept Meade and bring him to battle. As he passed through Brentsville, Meade detached a portion of Warren's corps and sent it across to Bristoe Station, to guard his flank from attack by the highway from Lee's route that there
ery he was unquestionably their superior, and we deplored the change which afterwards deprived us of his leadership. September 7th the corps was reviewed near Bealeton by Gen. Meade, and made a fine appearance. A corps review was a new experience to us, but one that became commonplace enough, later. September 9th was the ane scraped from our blankets by handfuls the next morning. At 6 o'clock we were again under way, but proceeded no more than three miles before making a halt near Bealeton on Bell Plain, our old review ground. Here we passed the rest of the day and succeeding night, up to about 3 A. M., of the 13th; then we were again turned out ahasty in his retreat, sent back the cavalry with the Second, Fifth, and Sixth corps to the vicinity of Brandy Station. This was the day we spent in waiting near Bealeton for the purpose, it would seem, of being within easy aiding distance in case Meade offered battle, which he contemplated doing at or near Culpepper. But the foe

om Catlett's Station, on Alexandria and Orange R. R. October 17. Major Proskauer, of 12th Alabama, with half of each company, six commissioned and several non-commissioned officers, was sent down the railroad towards Warrenton Junction, to destroy more of the road. I was one of the party. Late in the afternoon the rest of the regiment joined us. October 18. At 4 o'clock resumed our march, the 12th Alabama in front of the brigade, and company F in front of the regiment. Soon passed Bealeton, which the enemy had destroyed by fire. What a cruel sight, chimneys standing as lone sentinels, and blackened ashes around them, indicating reckless wantonness and cowardly vengeance upon helpless women and children. Even war, savage war, should be conducted upon more humane principles. Sword and musket and cannon are more tolerable, more courageous. Fire is the weapon of cowards, of the coarsest and most beastly and stealthy of the inhumane. The place had been a Yankee depot of suppl

army with provisions. After passing all the runs enumerated above, it reached the Rappahannock station. The principal stations, enumerating from Alexandria, were,—Manassas Junction, whence an important branch, as we have already known, proceeded eastward, passing through Thoroughfare Gap, to reach Front Royal on the Shenandoah; Bristow, near Broad Run; Catlett's, near Cedar Run; Warrenton Junction, whence a small branch ran to the village of Warrenton, at the foot of the mountains; then Bealeton, and finally Rappahannock station. Omitting the route leading from the chain bridge to Leesburg, which was parallel to the Potomac, and therefore useless, there is but one turnpike to be met in this country,—that which had already played so prominent a part in the battle of Bull Run in 1861, and which is known as the Warrenton turnpike; leaving Alexandria, it passes through Fairfax Court-house, whence a branch called the Little River Turnpike is detached from the main line to Aldie, reache

Warrenton and Warrenton Junction: it occupies Auburn and Catlett's Station. But the cavalry, which is pushed on beyond Bealeton, protects the reconstruction of the railroad as far as this point. Owing to the intelligent direction of Colonel McCallit, urging, as it appears, the necessity of protecting the railway which has just been rebuilt from Manassas Junction to Bealeton—a puerile motive if it did not conceal others, for in that manner the army, instead of using the railroads, would have blow the line of the railroad. The First corps, stationed on the left of the army, will join the Second and the Third at Bealeton, and form with them a column which, being directed by Meade and commanded by French, will take toward the south the road in Western Virginia, starts four regiments of Gregg's cavalry division after Rosser. Colonel Smith, in command, leaves Bealeton on the 21st of December, passes through Sulphur Springs and the village of Sperryville, forces Thornton's Gap on the fol
