our position. Longstreet's corps constituted our left, with Anderson's division resting upon the river, and those of McLaws, Pickett, and Hood extending to the right, in the order named. Ransom's division supported the batteries on Marye's and Willis's hills, at the foot of which Cobb's brigade, of McLaws's division, and the Twenty-fourth North-Carolina, of Ransom's brigade, were stationed, protected by a stone wall. The immediate care of this point was committed to General Ransom. The Washthe enemy, in formidable numbers, made repeated and desperate assaults upon the left of our line. About eleven A. M., having massed his troops, under cover of the houses of Fredericksburgh, he moved forward in strong columns to seize Marye's and Willis's hills. General Ransom advanced Cook's brigade to the top of the hill, and placed his own, with the exception of the Twenty-fourth North-Carolina, a short distance in the rear.

I reported to General Lee, commanding, and was ordered by him to proceed to the Quaker road, in the direction of Willis's church. Proceeding, in obedience to orders, for about a mile through the woods, around Mrs. C. Gathright's farm, I met with Captain Satcatt, the commanding General's Aid, who informed me that the enemy were near this place about twelve o'clock

Smith, Fourth Georgia, and speaks in the most complimentary terms of Colonel De Rosset, and Major Thurston, Third North Carolina, (the former severely, and the latter slightly, wounded,) and Captains Meares, McNair, and Williams, of the same regiment. Lieutenant-Colonel H. A. Brown, and Captain J. A. Hannell, acting Major of the First North Carolina regiment, are also highly commended. Lieutenant-Colonel Phil Cook, Captains Willis, De Graffenreid, and Lieutenants Hawkens, Bisel, Hulbert, Gay, (wounded,) Stephens, Exell, Snead, Cobb, (killed,) Macon, (severely wounded,) all commended themselves to my special notice by their gallant and meritorious conduct. Captain Rey, commanding Forty-fourth Georgia, and Captain Reid, Assistant Adjutant-General, are equally commended. Assistant Surgeon William P. Young remained on the field after he was wounded, caring for the wounded, and fell into the hands of the enemy. Pri
