f this country either to the Commonwealth of Virginia or to the Confederate Government. Its invaluable possessions and the absence of its patriotic sons have already attracted the designs of the enemy. At an early period of the war strong efforts were made to enter Western Virginia. The enemy unfortunately excluded us from the salines, coal mines, and supplies of the Kanawha, but his advance was checked by the valor of our troops, commanded by General John B. Floyd, at the battles of Cross Lanes and the defense of Gauley River. Since the last campaign the Confederate Government has stationed a small force for the protection of this superior country, and the enemy have been collecting supplies at a point (Raleigh Court-House) calculated to form the base of a formidable invasion into Southwestern Virginia. Within a few weeks past a marauding incursion has advanced and penetrated within 2 miles of the salines and lead mines, and it now threatens the Virginia and Tennessee Rail
n to the Rebel Cause. Here he was reinforced, and outranked, about August 1st, by Gen. John B. Floyd, who, under the influence of the inspiring news from Bull Run, and the depletion of the Federal forces by the mustering out of service of the three months men, was soon able to assume the offensive. Keeping well to the right of New River — the main affluent which unites near Gauley bridge with the Gauley to form the Kanawha — he surprised the 7th Ohio, Col. Tyler, while at breakfast at Cross Lanes, near Summersville, The capital of Nicholas county. and routed it with a loss of some 200 men. Moving thence southerly to Carnifex Ferry, he was endeavoring to gain the rear of Gen. Cox, who was still south of him, when he was himself attacked by Gen. Rosecrans, who, at the head of nearly 10,000 men, came rapidly down upon him from Clarksburg, nearly a hundred miles northward. Most of the Union troops had marched seventeen miles that day, when, at 3 o'clock P. M. of the 10th, they dre

It left the State June 26, 1861, and proceeded to West Virginia. While encamped by itself at Cross Lanes, W. Va., it was attacked by a large force under General Floyd; the regiment made an obstinate defense, but was driven from the field with a severe loss, many of the men being captured. The principal losses of the Seventh were,--at Kernstown, 20 k<
he other from Guyandotte. Both had been at Cross Lanes, and one of the fellows was relieved of the, was that Floyd was strongly intrenched at Cross Lanes, in such a position that, as he was said to — but let that pass. From Summersville to Cross Lanes was eight miles. Shortly after leaving tat forks in the road, one branch leading to Cross Lanes, the other turning down toward the river, passing a short distance behind Cross Lanes, crossing the Gauley by a ferry, and continuing on down ly and slowly down the road, passing behind Cross Lanes, to make an armed reconnoissance. Meantimet known, but one of our own men captured at Cross Lanes and recaptured here, states that it took thr us with a powerful force, intrenched near Cross Lanes, a point eight miles below Summersville, onat forks of the road--one branch leading to Cross Lanes and Gauley Bridge, the other to Lewisburgh rs of Col. Tyler's Seventh Ohio regiment at Cross Lanes, and took twelve prisoners, who were stragg[2 more...]
and eleven wounded. The field-officers of the Forty fourth were Col. S. A. Gilbert, Lieut.-Col. H. Blair Wilson, and Major A. 0. Mitchel, all of whom behaved with great bravery and coolness. No less gallantly moved the Thirty-sixth to the attack of Gen. Heath's right wing. They had to meet the Twenty-second Virginia regiment, an old regiment, organized a year ago in the Kanawha valley, and containing the elite rebels of that region. They had met Gen. Cox at Scarey, Col. Tyler at Cross Lanes, Gen. Rosecrans at Carnifex and at Cotton Hill, and lately, General Cox at Giles Court-House ; and boasted that they had never yet been defeated. The regiment was large, and very confident. After the Thirty-sixth had formed its line of battle, it marched up a steep pitch, almost a ledge; and arriving at the top, where the slope became more gentle, received the fire from the foe, drawn up in line waiting to receive us. The battle at once became general, and the firing was hot and incessa
ection of the Sixth Maine battery and the Twelfth Illinois cavalry, all under command of Colonel Charles Candy. The enemy surprised the outpost pickets and captured about fifty of the First Maryland and Twelfth Illinois cavalry, a portion of which was a patrol. The rebels opened with artillery, shelling our troops in the town, and made repeated charges upon them, each of which was met and repelled with the fire and steadiness which distinguished these troops at Winchester, Cross Keys, Cross Lanes, Port Republic, Cedar Mountain, and Antietam. The fight was vigorously continued on both sides, without intermission, all the afternoon and until a late hour in the evening. At four o'clock the whole force of the enemy was concentrated in an attack upon our flank, but the movement was promptly met and the rebels repulsed. At eight o'clock they retired discomfited and beaten by this force — so inferior to their own, but who have never yet turned tail to the enemy — to the Neobsco River,
