ederates, was killed. The gun that he was firing was abandoned, says General Carr, and his body left beside it, but subsequently recovered by a company that volunteered for that purpose. Swinton in his Army of the Potomac says that while Colonel Warren yet remained on the ground the Confederates abandoned the position. This is far from correct. General Magruder in his report says that the Confederate cavalry pursued the Federals for five miles. Colonel Carr, who commanded the Federal rearurther says, Official Report. It was not thought prudent to leave Yorktown exposed any longer. I therefore occupied the ground with cavalry, and marched the remainder of my force to Yorktown. So evidently the position was not abandoned while Warren was yet on the ground. The Confederate loss in this precursor of many bloody fields was 1 killed and 11 wounded; the Federal loss was 18 killed and 53 wounded. In the South this little victory over a vastly superior force awakened the wildest
g under Gen. Fitz John Porter to crush Branch's force out of his path. Porter had in his command Morell's division and Warren's brigade. Branch's force consisted of his own brigade—the Seventh North Carolina, Col. R. P. Campbell, the Eighteenth, ter had about 12,000 men. Peninsula Campaign. Probably, as Porter had one whole division (Morell's) and one brigade (Warren's), this is not far wrong. General Warren gives the number in each of his regiments, and the aggregate is 2,705; his regGeneral Warren gives the number in each of his regiments, and the aggregate is 2,705; his regiments averaging 653 men each. In Morell's division there were fourteen regiments (eleven infantry, two cavalry, one sharpshooters), three batteries, and two companies of sharpshooters. Putting these regiments and batteries at the same as Branch's (600 to the regiment), they aggregate 8,700, and with Warren's make a total force of 11,405 at the very least—nearly three times the Confederate force. At the approach of the two forces, General Branch advanced Colonel Lane with the Twenty-eighth
l Bennett's coolness and Colonel Parker's charge, Grimes and Cox, after their handsome efforts, would doubtlessly have been captured or severely cut up. The First and Third North Carolina regiments were in Colston's brigade and division. Colonel Warren was in command of Colston's brigade. This brigade was, however, under its fifth commander when Sunday's battle ended. Colonel Warren fell severely wounded, as did in turn his successors, Col. T. V. Williams, Col. John A. McDowell, and LieutColonel Warren fell severely wounded, as did in turn his successors, Col. T. V. Williams, Col. John A. McDowell, and Lieut.-Col. S. D. Thruston. Lieut.-Col. H. A. Brown, of the First North Carolina, was fortunate enough to be the only uninjured commander. This list of wounded officers proves that the brigade fought unflinchingly. The Regimental History of the Third regiment gives this account of the brigade's part in the action: On Sunday, the 3d, the regiment was formed on the right of the road, and advancing, captured the first line of the enemy's works—a barricade of huge logs with abatis in front. The portio
e Lee, and the Confederate army moved on toward Bristoe Station. Gen. A. P. Hill's corps reached that point first, and, on the 14th, brought on an engagement with Warren's Second corps. This was almost entirely, on the Confederate side, a North Carolina battle; for the two brigades that did nearly all the fighting were both from lel to a railroad that concealed them from sight. Cooke and Kirkland advanced, and no opportunity offered Walker to form on line with them. They encountered General Warren's Second corps drawn up along a line of railroad. The Federal forces that these two brigades were ordered to attack were posted in a low cut almost perfectreluctantly gave up their advantage. General Kirkland was wounded, Colonel Martin was several times wounded, and a loss of 270 inflicted upon the brigade. General Warren in his official report bears testimony to the fearlessness of the North Carolina men in their attacks. He reports, the-enemy's line of battle boldly moving f
ermined will that mastered doubt, but not without some natural anxiety as to derangements that might occur from so heterogeneous a combination. The Albemarle was built in an open cornfield, of unseasoned timber. A simple blacksmith shop aided the mechanical part of her construction. Notwithstanding the difficulties of her construction, the vessel was, when finished, a formidable fighting machine. In the early hours of the 19th of April, she dropped down the river and passed the fort at Warren's neck, under a furious fire. The protection from the shield was so complete that the shot from the guns at Warren sounded to those on board, says Elliott, no louder than pebbles against a barrel. In the rear of Fort Williams, the Albemarle saw two Federal gunboats lashed together. These were the Southfield and the Miami, under the brilliant C. W. Flusser. Immediately the Albemarle dashed nine feet of her prow into the Southfield, delivering at the same time a broadside into the Miami,

As Ewell advanced—Jones' brigade in front, followed by Battle's and Doles' on Battle's right—Griffin's division of Warren's corps, composed of the brigades of Ayres, Bartlett and Barnes, fell upon Jones and drove him back. Jones' men somewhat by Hancock's corps, to attack the Confederates and drive them back to Parker's store, so that Hancock might connect with Warren's left. Hancock formed the divisions of Birney, Mott, Gibbon and Barlow on Getty's left. These five divisions were resibegan to move his army toward Spottsylvania Court House. That night the race of the two armies for Spottsylvania began. Warren was pushed out of the way, and Lee's army occupied the coveted point. During the movements on the 7th, Ramseur's brigadn our favor. Hancock, says General Law, had been reinforced by the divisions of Russell and Wheaton, and about half of Warren's corps as the battle progressed. All day long the men contended like fiends for the works over which both Federal and C
Grant's army was engaged in its mobilization on the banks of the Chickahominy. Wilson's well-organized cavalry corps and Warren's infantry corps were to threaten Richmond directly, and thus mask the movement on Petersburg. By midnight of the 16th o Hancock and Smith were joined by Burnside's corps about noon on the 16th, making an aggregate force of over 53,000 men. Warren's corps, 17,000 strong, reached Petersburg that night. Hancock, in command until General Meade's arrival, assaulted all the Darbytown road, in the presence of General Lee. General Clingman's brigade took part in Mahone's and Heth's attack on Warren's corps on the 19th. In this engagement, General Clingman was so seriously wounded that he was never again able to join t had lost in weeks in the trenches. Lane's and MacRae's brigades formed a part of A. P. Hill's force in his attack on Warren at Jones' farm on September 30th. There Major Wooten's skirmish line greatly distinguished itself, and the two brigades
n trains that were thought to aid in supplying the Confederate army, General Grant ordered the Second and Fifth corps to move on Hatcher's run. Portions of the Sixth and Ninth corps were afterward sent to reinforce the Second and Fifth. February 6th, General Lee, being apprised of this threat to his right, arranged for parts of Gordon's and Hill's corps to meet it. The Federal corps, on establishing line, promptly intrenched. That afternoon Pegram led an attack on the new line and broke General Warren's front. That was afterward restored, and the success, in which Cooke's and MacRae's brigades shared, was without fruit, and resulted in Pegram's death. In the brilliant attack on Fort Stedman, Grimes' divi-sion and other North Carolina troops bore their full share of deadly battle. At Rives' salient, on the day of evacuation of Petersburg, at Southerland's Station, at Sailor's creek, on to Appomattox, the North Carolina infantry were as a wall of fire to the great commander whose p
