n L. Manning with the rank of lieutenant-colonel. In April, 1861, he volunteered in the Confederate service and was made first lieutenant of a local company, from which he resigned shortly afterward. In June, 1861, he entered Company B, Hampton legion, as a private and served with that command until the reorganization in 1862, when he was made adjutant of the Hampton legion infantry regiment, commanded by Colonel Gary. With this regiment, General Jenkin's brigade, he served until about May 1, 1864, when Gary's cavalry brigade was organized and he was made its adjutant-general. He was in Longstreet's corps at Suffolk, with Jenkins' brigade on the Blackwater, and in front of Richmond in 1863; joined Longstreet's corps at Petersburg and served with it at the siege of Chattanooga and Knoxville until January, 1864. During the entire siege of Petersburg he served on the extreme left of Lee's army, south of Richmond, taking care of those lines as far as the White house. Gary's brigade

he entire division were participants, a demonstration not prescribed in army regulations, but so hearty and cordial that the severity of discipline relaxed in favor of the veterans. General Johnston occupied the next three months in the training and discipline of his troops. The winter was exceptionally severe; the rations were not the best; fuel and clothing, hats and shoes were not always obtainable; but the approach of spring found the men cheerful and ready for action. On the 1st of May, 1864, the army of Tennessee had of infantry, artillery and cavalry, 42,756 officers and men. Gen. W. T. Sherman, commanding the Federal army, telegraphed the general commanding at Washington, on the 5th of May, that his forward movement was being made from Ringgold, Ga., with an army 80,000 strong. General Johnston was soon reinforced by the divisions of Major-Generals Loring and French, commanded by Lieutenant-General Polk, and known thereafter as Polk's corps. On the 5th the Confedera

is oration before the veterans of the Army of the Potomac, at their last reunion, Major Maginnis gave an estimate of losses of this army, which we think can be shown to be greatly below the real figures, but we give his figures as a most eloquent tribute to the prowess of the Army of Northern Virginia, and the skill of our great commander: He said: From May, 1861, to March, 1864, the losses of the Army of the Potomac were, in killed, 15,220; wounded, 65,850; captured, 31,378; in all, 112,448. From May 1, 1864, to April 9, 1865, killed, 12,500; wounded, 69,500; captured or missing, 28,000; aggregate, 110,000. From the beginning to the close of the war, killed, 27,720; wounded, 155,652; captured or missing, 59,378. A grand aggregate of 242,750. Added those who died of gunshot wounds, the number of men who lost their lives in action in the Army of the Potomac was 48,902, probably one-half of all who died from wounds on the field of battle in all the armies of the United States.

e found himself required to promise that he would not repeat the Vicksburg strategy, but would march straight to meet us in the open field. He might have all the men he wanted, provided only he would undertake to move straight on and crush us without the adventitious aid of the naval forces striking us where we were unable to resist. Such, I suppose, was somewhat the occasion of his promise to fight it out on this line if it took all the summer. Did he fulfill his promise? On the 1st of May, 1864, General Grant had 120,380 men of all arms, to which was added, before he commenced active operations, 20,780, giving him a total of 141,160 men at the opening of the campaign, against which Lee had present for duty but 63,984. With these enormous odds in his favor he fought it out but a single month, during which time—to quote from our old friend, the Adjutant-General of the Army of Northern Virginia, Colonel Taylor, from whom I have taken most of these figures—there had been an almos

f the 9th marched by Hamilton's Crossing to the Telegraph road, and moving to the right of General Lee's right flank, marched to Beaver Dam station on the Newport News and Mississippi Valley railroad, and from that point by the Louisa or Old Mountain Road, via Glen Allen, a station on the Fredericksburg railroad, to the Yellow Tavern. His command consisted of three divisions under Generals Merritt, Wilson, and Gregg, numbering, according to the official returns of the Federal army, dated May 1, 1864, 9,300 men in the saddle. His brigade commanders were Custer, Devins, Gibbs, Davies. J. Irvin Gregg, McIntosh, and Chapman. General Stuart followed these seven brigades of Sheridan with the three brigades of his command, viz: Lomax's and Wickham's of Fitz Lee's division, and a North Carolina brigade under General Gordon, making a total effective force of some 3,000 troopers. On the morning of the 11th General Stuart intercepted, at Yellow Tavern, Sheridan's line of march, and succee

The first half of the roll as of this date is missing down to private 64—John J. Marshall, who joined March 24, 1864. Others on this part of the roll are R. Powell Page, who joined May 1, 1864, and James G. Pollard, July 22d. Frank O'Rourke and Henry Woody are both reported as having left the company February 22, 1864. The whole number of privates on that roll was one hundred and twenty-two. The roll of October, 1864, is the last full roll before the end of the war. It notes: Andrew M. Darnall joined May 10, 1864; Edward Gerard, absent since June 13, 1864; Otho G. Kean, sent to hospital September 2, 1864. The next mustering of the company, and probably the last one, w

of the warfare can be written so as to enable foreign nations and posterity to do justice to the character of those who have sustained so unequal a struggle for all that is dear to man. In anticipation of that time, I will call attention to some facts which will show the tremendous odds the Confederate armies had to encounter. Mr. Secretary Stanton's report shows that the available strength present for duty in the army with which General Grant commenced the campaign of 1864 was, on 1st of May, 1864, as follows: The Army of the Potomac (under Gen. Meade)120,386 The Ninth Army Corps (under Gen. Burnside)20,780 ——— Aggregate141,166 Beside this, he says the chief part of the force designed to guard the Middle Department and the Department of Washington was called to the front to repair losses in the Army of the Potomac, which doubtless was done before that army left the vicinity of Spotsylvania Courthouse, as General Grant says: The 13th, 14th, 15th, 16th, 17th, and 18th
