se of any other war, of which I ever read. The Horseshoe or Bloody Angle. While I am writing on the subject, I hope you and your readers will pardon me, if I write a little more. Major Stiles, page 263, touches upon the subject of faulty formation in our lines, with an implied query about what was known as the salient, or bloody angle. In the first place, the line both to the right and left of the salient was on a considerable ridge overlooking the low grounds between it and the Ny river. On the march from the wilderness on May 8, Johnson's division, which followed Rodes' division reached the Spotsylvania field late in the afternoon, and was ordered to form on Rodes' right, and extend it. When Rodes had gotten his men in line, and the head of our column had reached his right, upon which we were to form, it was nearly dark. Rodes' right rested on the edge of the woods, and to extend his line, we had to go through the woods. We had no guides and no lights, and General John

oldiers. It is doubtful if the courage and the endurance of any soldiers in any army was surpassed by that of the Confederate soldier, and his example, either in attack or resistance, is not surpassed by the armies of the world, impelled as he was by the purest patriotism under unexampled Christian leaders to do his duty, with none of that fatalism characterizing the reckless fighting of Mohammedans, Hindoos and Japanese. The field of this engagement is embraced between the Po and the Ny rivers, branches of the Mattapony, a rolling, undulating, wellwooded country, intersected by small branches from these streams, which are sometimes low and marshy. The map herewith presented is an enlarged one, taken from one of the War Record's office, and shows, marked in red and black, the lines of the works occupied by the troops of both armies engaged in the several battles in this neighborhood. The positions of the armies on May 18th, 1864, were as follows: Confederate Army. Longstr

a C. H., Via Guiney's Station, May 16th. To His Excellency, President Davis: The enemy has made no movement against our position to-day. He has retired his right and extended his left towards Massaponax Church, occupying the line of the Ni river, his main force being apparently east of that stream. (Signed) R. E. Lee. The line of the Ni river is said to afford a very strong position, but we rely upon Gen. Lee to take a stronger one. The following private dispatch from Ni river is said to afford a very strong position, but we rely upon Gen. Lee to take a stronger one. The following private dispatch from Mayor Slaughter, of Fredericksburg, was received yesterday morning: Guiney's Station, May 16, 1864. The Yankees advanced in force about two miles on our right. They hold Massaponax Church. All quiet to day-no firing. Immense Yankee trains are passing from the telegraph and plank roads to Fredericksburg. They can be seen from Hicks's Hill. M. Slaughter. The Danville Railroad. Spears's raiding party has made no further demonstration against the Danville railroad, and
, and all supposed that an other death struggle for the mastery was about to occur. Fortunately the precautions taken by our great chief were so wise, and his dispositions so admirable, that all the brave Confederate soldier had to do, when he rose from his dreams on the ground behind the entrenchments, was to reach out for his trusty musket. As you were informed by my letter of the 16th and by Gen Lee's official dispatches, the enemy moved a portion of his forces to the east bank of the Ny; in the direction of the Richmond and Fredericksburg railroad. The opinion prevailed at the time that Grant was trying to throw his army to the east side of the Mattapoul, and that he would probably move down the stream to Bowling Green, and possibly to West Point, where he would form a junction with Butler and Smith. Doubtless he desired to produce this impression upon Gen Lee, as in that event he might reasonably "calculate" that the latter would make a corresponding movement to the east.
