with Lieutenant Frank C. Barnes, now of Charlotte county, on my right. This reminded me of pictures I had seen about battles in books when a boy. But Huger's Division came to our relief, over-lapping and capturing the whole force along with General McCall. General Pickett was not there, as he was wounded a few days before at Gaine's Mill. I will never forget the looks of a tall, whiskered North Carolinian as he passed near me, with his musket pointing to the front, saying, They got you boys; but get out of the way and we will give them hell. Some years ago I published this incident, and received a letter from Captain Symington, now of Baltimore, who said that he distinctly remembered it; but Capt. Charles Pickett performed equally as meritorious service on that occasion. If any men deserved a badge or medal for extraordinary bravery in the face and under the fire of the enemy it was Captain Symington. Thos. D. Jeffreys, Captain Fifty-sixth Va. Chase City, Va., May 14, 1906.
