umbers, the moment the redoubt was flanked, I considered the island lost. The struggle could have been protracted and the small body of brave men, which had been held in reserve, might have been brought up into the open space to receive the fire of the overwhelming force on our flank, which was under cover of trees; but they would have been sacrificed without the smallest hope of a successful result. The loss of the Confederates was 23 killed and 62 wounded; among the killed were Capt. O. Jennings Wise, and Lieutenants Selden and Munroe. The Federal loss was, killed, 37, wounded, 214. Colonel Shaw surrendered about 2,000 men, including his sick. The difference between this force and his reported effectives comes from the fact, that, after the main battle, the Second North Carolina battalion (eight companies) and Major Fry with four companies of the Forty-sixth Virginia arrived on the island and were included in the surrender. When the Confederate vessels retreated from Roanoke
ay Smith as long as possible, and then sullenly withdrew inside the main works. At this time General Beauregard had only Wise's brigade, 2,400 strong, and Dearing's cavalry, within the lines. Smith's attack met a heavy loss, but carried the line oches, and were ready for their share of hard fighting on the 16th. From the extreme right of the Confederate line held by Wise, to the left held by Hoke, was about five miles, so the men in gray had an attenuated line in these works. The engineers divisions of Hoke, Johnson and Mahone were in the trenches. The mine was under Johnson's portion of the fortifications. Wise was on Elliott's right, Ransom's brigade under Colonel McAfee (Ransom being wounded) on his left. Hill's corps, and most of the Seventeenth North Carolina and Forty-ninth Carolina. . . drove back the charge along the trenches. On the right, Wise's men joined Elliott in grim resistance. The Sixty-first North Carolina regiment, sent by General Hoke to reinforce the t
Gettysburg campaign, and in the latter part of July defeated the enemy's advance toward Weldon. He continued to serve in North Carolina during 1863, participated in the capture of Plymouth, defeated the enemy at Suffolk March 9, 1864, and then fought with Beauregard before Petersburg, with Longstreet on the north side of the James, and in Bushrod Johnson's division on the Crater line. During the latter part of 1864 he was in command of this division, comprising his own brigade and those of Wise, Gracie and Wallace. In the famous assault upon the Federal works on Hare's hill, March 25, 1865, he commanded two brigades, whose service was particularly complimented by General Lee. He was again in battle at Five Forks, and finally surrendered with Lee at Appomattox. After the close of hostilities he resumed the practice of law and engaged in planting, until 1872, when he was elected to the United States Senate, where he served by re-election a continuous period of twenty-four years.
