men, for history has already recorded how that field was fought and won. The hearing you have kindly afforded me as a member of the personal staff of General R. E. Lee at the time of that battle. is on the subject of General R. E. Lee at Chancellorsville, and what you wish to know particularly is, I presume, whether or not he conceived and directed the movement around the right flank, and the attack on the rear of Hooker's army. Both General Lee and General Jackson were so pre-eminent forkson on the night of May 1st, 1863, General Jackson proposed to throw his command entirely into Hooker's rear. But it was not until the Ninth Annual Re-union of the Association, in October, 1879, that General Fitzhugh Lee, in his address on Chancellorsville, endeavored to settle the question as to who originated the movement of Jackson's corps to the rear of Hooker, and gave Col. Charles Marshall's account of the matter. Subsequently, in 1886, General A. L. Long, in his Memoirs of R. E. Lee,

From the Repois detail to show the errors writers upon Chancellorsville have fallen into, in reference to the Oriledge that I have not read the article on Chancellorsville in the last number of the Southern Reviewtary principle. In the operations around Chancellorsville, I overtook General Jackson, who had been that he had been pastor of a church near Chancellorsville, and was well acquainted with all the roaecked, and that the enemy was in force at Chancellorsville. This brought General Lee to the front, to his skill and activity the victory of Chancellorsville was in great part due. All this respon[18 more...]

temples, and among their congregated dwellings, blazing or uprooted. This is our Saints' day—two score and three years ago amid the tangled undergrowth at Chancellorsville, the wound which released his noble soul was inflicted. Never did the death of one man exercise such influence upon a nascent or established State. Gustavued against Hooker, and the Army of the Potomac would have ceased to exist as a fighting unit. I recall the march of Jackson's Corps from Fredericksburg to Chancellorsville the day before that battle—it was full of glories. Halting to rest along a narrow road, arms were stacked—in a line as crooked as the line of an old-fashionall I appraise the influence of our illustrious captains and the obedience of their ragged cohorts! How shall I inventory their virtues!

lacked but a month of being twenty-two years of age, but he was a seasoned veteran, and knew thoroughly the art of warfare. He was born near Philadelphia, April 3, 1842, the second son of Rear-Admiral John Adolph Dahlgren, the noted naval officer, author and scholar. He was educated in Washington, entered the war in 1861 as a captain, and had distinguished himself time after time for bravery in action. In 1862 he fought gallantly at Fredericksburg; and had made a desperate charge at Chancellorsville; at second Bull Run he had gained the admiration of all his fellow-officers, and had lost a leg in a desperate charge at Gettysburg. For his absolute fearlessness and bravery he had been promoted over the intermediate grades to Colonel, the commission having been personally brought to his bedside by Secretary Stanton. Now, in the spring of 1864, having recovered from his loss of limb, he was again at the front, willing to sacrifice his life and the lives of his men to accomplish the

Early's actual purpose was to make a surprise attack against their left and rear, as was actually made that night, and that it did actually deceive them, as intended results show. And I think that when all this, and their overwhelming numbers, etc., is considered, in conjunction with our subsequent movements and attack that night and next morning, it constituted one of the most brilliant strategical movements of the whole war—probably only surpassed by some of Stonewall Jackson's—as at Chancellorsville—[see a the first article in this volume] and, in fact, this battle, taken as a whole, I have never been able to find a counterpart anywhere in history. Preparing for the assault. Soon after getting back to camp (from our feint) orders came to feed up and be prepared to move—then a little after dark, orders to get into light marching order—to leave canteens and everything calculated to make any noise in marching—ammunition up—or fill cartridge boxes—fall in—move.

The battle of greatest lustre. From the Times-dispatch, May 4, 1906. An incident in Chancellorsville campaign and what grew out of it. Operations of Cavalry—e story of General Averett's interview with a Confederate prisoner Retold. No battle, probably, in which the Federal and Confederate armies were engaged reflected more lustre on Southern generalship and the valor of the Southern soldier than the bloody struggle of Chancellorsville. The events which took place on that historic field and at Salem Church, May 13, 1863, were of a nature so important and brilliant as to eclipse and obscure the co-operating movements and detached services performed at the time in connection with the two contending armies The operations of the cavalry having covered a wide extent of territory and issued in numerous skirmishes without any regular battle, have claimed but slight attention in comparison with the desperate fighting and signal successes on the chief scenes of action.

Third face: Though past threescore, he entered the military service As Colonel of Virginia Infantry, And rose by sheer merit to the rank of Major-General. At First Manassas, Seven Pines, the Seven Days Battle, Cedar Mountain, Second Manassas, Sharpsburg, Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville and Gettysburg. His fiery, yet cheerful courage was everywhere conspicuous, And the only fault imputed to him by his superior was A too reckless exposure of his person, Thrice wounded at Sharpsburg, he refused to leave the field, And remained in command of his regiment until the end of that sanguinary engagement. Fourth face: Called from the army to guide again the destinies of this Commonwealth during 1864-65 He displayed such energy, resource and unshaken resolution, As dre
