The Daughters of the Confederacy in Maryland held a popular and successful bazaar in the Fifth Regimenedged by all intelligent and fair-minded men and women in Maryland, as elsewhere. Young men and maidens, old men and childrrs were held in the same place by the same noble women of Maryland in 1885 and 1898, to supply the means to provide for indigent and worthy Confederates in Maryland, who hail from all parts of the South, the proceeds of those two bazaars being collappropriated $100,000 for like purpose. As relating to Maryland Confederate troops, the historical sketch which follows pday, June 6th, is identical in the Valley of Virginia and Maryland.

How Virginia supplied Maryland with arms. John W. Garrett's advice. Wanted Virginia army to Occupy Bed through her streets on their way to the South. Maryland's best and noblest sons were in sympathy with the said: The people of Baltimore and the citizens of Maryland, generally, were united in at least one thing, viz Southern States, should not pass over the soil of Maryland if they could prevent it. Arms for Maryland. Maryland. In response to this appeal, Governor Letcher, of Virginia, sent the following telegram on April 22d: Major-il of the State of Virginia agreed to loan the State of Maryland 5,000 more arms from the arsenal at Lexington,ith a royal welcome from those gallant sons of old Maryland whom I afterwards learned to admire for their solduls. I was escorted to the Institute, where the Maryland Line was quartered; then to Holliday street, whereve been fought there.

the organization, showing how it was organized on April 18, 1896, by four ladies, Mrs. Jefferson Davis Weir, Mrs. S. J. Fowler, Mrs. M. A. Farwood and herself. The charter was drafted by Colonel L. P. Briant, Mrs. Weir having been appointed a committee of one to attend to that important detail. Mrs. Varina Jefferson Davis is an honorary member of the chapter. The programme was very beautiful. Miss Florence Huberwald sang, as only Miss Huberwald could, that grand old Southern war song, Maryland, My Maryland. The tears coursed silently down the eyes of many as her beautiful voice rose and fell in exquisite modulation of the patriotic melody. The feature of the celebration was the eloquent address of Hon. E. Howard McCaleb. Mr. McCaleb said that he would not attempt, on this ninety-third anniversary of the birth of Mr. Davis, to give even a brief outline of a life and character which are so intimately interwoven with the history of the country, but rather to recall a few person

Jeb. Stuart lost his life in Recapturing a borrowed Maryland Battery. General Bradley T. Johnson, the distinguished Maryland exCon-federate, writes to the Sun as follows, giving some hitherto unpublished military dispatches connected with the operations of Maryland troops in the battles around Richmond in 1864: Among your collection of unpublished military dispatches you may include these two, which have never been printed. In October, 1863, I was ordered by General Lee to assemble the Maryland Line, then in separate commands in the Army of Northern Virginia—except the Latrobe Battery, which was with the Army of the Southwest —at Hanover Junction, to guard the five long, high bridges there, over the North Anna, the South Anna, and W. Scott Chew; the Third Maryland Artillery. Latrobe's Battery served in the west, and was never in my command. The Maryland Line, thus gotten together, was the largest collection of Marylanders who ever fought under the gold and black. Our dut

Regiment, Virginia Cavalry, Gary's Brigade, Army of Northern Virginia. Colonel Marshall's reply. Baltimore, June 5, 1901. Spotswood Bird, Esq., Late Private, Company F, Twenty-fourth Regiment, Virginia Cavalry: dear Sir,—I have received your communication of May 23d, and herewith return, as requested, my reply. The subject of your letter is one that is entirely covered, I think, by my address delivered before the Society of the Army and Navy of the Confederate States in the State of Maryland on January 19, 1894, which I inclose to you and of which you may make such use as you deem proper. You will perceive from the address that the circumstances attending the meeting between General Grant and General Lee on April 9, 1865, did not call for any demand on the part of General Grant for the surrender of General Lee's sword on that occasion and that any statement, however made and by whomsoever made to the effect that General Lee made the tender of the surrender of his sword to

human endurance to advance further; but here the line rested, and was held through that bloody day, resisting assault after assault of the enemy. But for this terrific and successful assault on the part of Hood's division, our left centre would have been broken, the left wing of the army turned, and the fords on the Potomac captured by the enemy, and Lee's army shut in between the Antietam and the Potomac. By members of the brigade who were engaged in nearly every battle in Virginia and Maryland, Sharpsburg, on account of its sanguinary and protracted character; has been characterized as the hardest-fought battle of the war. General Hood, who won his rank of major-general for gallantry on that day, speaks of this charge in the following language: Here I witnessed the most terrible clash of arms by far that has occurred during the war. Two little giant brigades of my command wrestled with the mighty force, and although they lost hundreds of their officers and men, they drove them

pirited, panic-stricken, his right wing routed and doubled back upon his centre, tangled in a wilderness without room to employ his immense force. His very numbers working to its disadvantage, hemmed in on every side, with Jackson's victorious corps in his rear and Lee in his front, strange as it may seem, Hooker's immense army of 100,000 men would have been forced to surrender, and the war would have ended with a clap of thunder. The whole North would have been laid open, and Lee's victorious army, augmented by thousands of enthusiastic volunteers. Washington and Baltimore would have been occupied and all of Maryland aroused. This young and virile Confederacy, sprung all at once armed and equipped a very Cyclops from the brain of Minerva, would have taken its place high up among the family of nations. That blast in the wilderness put an end to the almost assured result, and the hope of a great southern empire became only a dream. Was it Providence, or fate? Who can tell?
