Ransom's division at Fredericksburg. by Robert Ransom, Rrigadier-General, C. S. A. In The century magazine for August, 1886, General James Longstreet published what he saw of the battle of Fredericksburg, Va., December 13th, 1862. [See p. 70.] The omissions in that article were so glaring, and did such injustice, that I wrote to him and requested him to correct what would produce false impressions. His answer was unsatisfactory, but promised that, I [Longstreet] expect in the near futeason of my immediate care of the point attacked. My official report exhibits no self-seeking nor partial discriminations. Upon a letter from me (of the 17th of December, 1862) to General R. H. Chilton, assistant adjutant-general Army of Northern Virginia, wherein I protest against the ignoring of my command in some telegraphic dispatches to the War Department at Richmond relative to the battle of the 13th, General Longstreet indorses these words: General Ransom's division was engaged throug

The first day at Gettysburg. by Henry J. Hunt, Brevet Major-General, U. S. A., chief of artillery of the army of the Potomac. The battles of Fredericksburg and Chancellorsville raised the confidence of the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia to such a height as to cause its subordinate officers and soldiers to believe that, as opposed to the Army of the Potomac, they were equal to any demand that could be made upon them. Their belief in the superiority of the Southerner to the Northerner as a fighter was no longer, as at the beginning of the war, a mere provincial conceit, for it was now supported by signal successes in the field. On each of these two occasions the Army of the Potomac had been recently reorganized under a new general, presumably abler than his predecessor and possessing the confidence of the War Department, and the results were crowning victories for the Confederates. Yet at Fredericksburg defeat was not owing to any lack of fighting qualities on the part of
