Pettigrew's charge at Gettysburg. By General B. D. Fry. office of Southern Historical Society, Richmond, Va., December 8th, 1878. General B. D. Fry: My Dear Fry — Although the battle of Gettysburg has during the year past been very much discussed, no proper exposition has been made of the part which was borne in the final charge by the brigades that day commanded by General Pettigrew. Swinton and other writers have created the impression that Pickett's division alone reached, in orde fair fame of Pettigrew, who was one of the most cultivated, accomplished and chivalrous commanders of the Army of Northern Virginia. I hope, therefore, you will contribute to the records of this Society your narrative of the final charge at Gettysburg. Sincerely and always your friend, Dabney H. Maury, Chairman Executive Committee Southern Historical Society. In the numerous accounts of the battle of Gettysburg heretofore published, the writers have generally referred to the last ef

A Correction of Dr. McKim's paper. By Colonel J. R. Winston. It seems almost impossible to get the facts of battles. Writers of the very highest standing make different statements about the same transaction. Rev. Dr. McKim, in sketch of Steuart's brigade on third day at Gettysburg, says (Southern Historical Society Papers, June, 1878, pages 298-9): Daniel's brigade remained in the breastworks during and after the charge, and neither from that command nor from any other had we any support. Now, I know that Daniel's brigade went into the fight on General Steuart's line; as we went in I passed General Steuart, and as I came out (badly wounded) I again passed him. Hestopped me and talked with me about my wounds. A portion of Daniel's brigade — some of the Forty-fifth North Carolina regiment--never did get behind breastworks, although they were exposed to two lines of works of the enemy. I can bear fullest testimony to the gallantry of General Steuart and his brave regiments of V

ewall brigade, not having the same protection as the Louisiana brigade, was broken and scattered through the woods. It was then that the second line was ordered forward to retake the position. I do not know how much more of our first line was broken, and I am confining myself to what I know of my own personal knowledge and what I saw with my own eyes. The charge of the Federals on this occasion was not surpassed in gallantry by any that was made during the war — not even by Pickett at Gettysburg. To have passed through such a fire of artillery, which almost enfiladed their line, and to have broken the Stonewall brigade, composed of troops equal to Napoleon's Old Guard, was an act of gallantry not to be surpassed by any troops of any army. As my brigade advanced through the woods to retake the position, the minnie balls were rattling like hail against the trees, and as we debouched into the field through which the railroad cut ran, nothing could be seen between us and the smo

uad passed the intervals separating the epaulements, and fired several shots. In less than three minutes all were killed or captured, save two or three, who are said to have escaped. General Pettigrew received a wound in one of his hands at Gettysburg, in consequence of which he was unable to manage his horse, which reared and fell with him. It is probable, when in the act of rising from the ground, that he was struck by a pistol ball in the side (left), which, unfortunately for himself and h repelled the attack, and drove the enemy back into the woods, following him up for some distance. The enemy was now heavily reinforced, and Brockenbrough was compelled to fall back. His brigade, having been badly cut up on the 1st and 3d at Gettysburg, was much reduced in numbers. Seeing that the enemy evidently designed turning his right flank and thus cutting him off from the river, Brockenbrough deployed his brigade as skirmishers, extending well to the right. About this time the enem

Before reaching this place my brigade was detached by Malry under the command of Lieutenant-Colonel White. In front of Gettysburg a regiment of Pennsylvania militia was charged and routed by this which we had been separated since June 26th. Marching thence to Gettysburg, we participated in the battle of July 1st. In accordance with oce to mention.

or Thomas S. Mills, Assistant Adjutant-General: Sir — I respectfully submit the operations of my brigade in the recent engagements with the enemy near Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, in the following report: The division having encamped for three days at Fayetteville, on the morning of July 1st moved forward on the Chambersburg ane enemy's forces near the latter place. The division filed off to the right of the road and halted in the woods for an hour; then, resuming the march towards Gettysburg, one and a half miles, my brigade filed off to the right of the road in a perpendicular direction, and marched in this direction near one mile; and being joined line across a road running parallel to my front, and into the Emmettsburg road five hundred yards in his front; from this intersection the road continued on to Gettysburg in a direction parallel to the front of Anderson's division.

Colonel Winston's Correction corrected. By Rev. Dr. R. H. Mckim. The February number of these Papers (page 94) contains a communication from Colonel J. R. Winston, calling in question the accuracy of certain statements made by me in my narrative of Steuart's brigade at Gettysburg. Allow me first to assure my critic that I have been unfortunate in conveying my meaning if anything I have written seems to imply a slur either on General Daniel or his brave men. My meaning was that for such a charge to be made by a single brigade, unsupported, was proof that somebody blundered --not General Daniel, because it is to be presumed that he acted in obedience to orders. I simply stated the fact that a charge which, to some of Steuarts' regiments, was as fatal as Balaklava was to the Light brigade, was made by that brigade without support, though help was at hand in General Daniel's gallant brigade, which moved up and took our position when we left the Federal works to make the charge.
