avy rain and constant skirmishing, without loss. Part of the troops were engaged all day in throwing up works in the front. On Friday, the 31st, the regiment moved to the left of the works, and moved still further to the left hourly during the day. Heavy fighting by the Fifth Corps, First Division, Second Corps and cavalry on the left. Heavy firing on the flank in the afternoon, but without loss in the Nineteenth. At night moved still further to the left and took part in support of General Mott, one half mile east of the Boydton Plank Road. On Saturday, April 1, the regiment moved to the right, nearly to the old position, at the Burgess House; remained there until 5 P. M., when they were moved out in front and began to throw up a new line of works, with the right advanced. Heavy cannonading was carried on at the right nearly all day. At that time the Confederate lines had been pushed back to the Burgess Mill, near the junction of the Boydton and White Oaks Road, where there

balls seemed to come from all directions and was incessant. I said to the man next to me I guess our men are firing from the first line. We had better go back there. I don't believe our men carried the works on the left. (We had been told that Mott's division and a division of the Ninth Corps were to charge immediately after us if we carried the works in our front.) He answered The fire is all from the Rebs. In a moment a battery opened upon us and we fell back to the first line over which aking the attack at the point which he should select, and point out to him. He would carefully reconnoiter the enemy's line and have an engineer officer locate the most favorable point of attack. General Wright was informed that Burnside's Corps, Mott's division, and a portion of the Fifth Corps would cooperate with him on both his flanks, and to seize any opportunity his success might afford to crush and drive out the enemy in his front. With this order and understanding General Wright rode a

ct of his soldierly career and his life. The Sixth, Second, and Fifth Corps had been extended to the left, to seize the Weldon Road, below Petersburg. By improper tactical dispositions, a gap had been left between the Sixth on the left and the Second in the centre. Mahone saw the error, rushed across the right flank of the Sixth Corps, struck the left of the Second, both in front and on the left, and instantly rolled up Barlow's division like a scroll. The retirement of Barlow uncovered Mott to an attack in front, flank and rear, and he too gave way in confusion. On the right, Gibbon's veteran division alone remained, having a point of support and protection in some hasty intrenchments. It in turn was overwhelmingly pressed on all sides. Regiment after regiment gave way, and the rout appeared universal, till the shock reached Captain Patten. He had a regiment which never had learned to break. Changing front with the greatest rapidity and skill, he disposed his scanty band o

ry. The enemy was routed and fled precipitately, abandoning a very large amount of arms, munitions, knapsacks and baggage. The pursuit was continued along several routes toward Leesburg and Centerville until darkness covered the fugitives. Our force engaged not exceeding fifteen thousand; that of the enemy estimated at thirty-five thousand. Col. Kerrigan, at Alexandria, to Cameron, July 22: There are about 7,000 men here without officers. Nothing but confusion. Gen. Mansfield to Capt. Mott at the Chain Bridge, July 22: Order the Sixth Maine to keep these demoralized troops out of their camp. Gen. Mansfield to Gen. Runyan, July 22: Why do the regiments I sent to you yesterday return so precipitously to Alexandria without firing a shot? Col. Thomas A. Scott to Gen. Mansfield, July 22: Allow me to suggest that you man the forts and prevent soldiers from passing over to the city. Their arrival here would produce a panic on this side. The enemy is still pressing McDowell
rength up to nearly 134,000 soldiers, when, toward the last of April, he made ready to cross the Rappahannock and attack Lee's 63,000 veterans. Jackson held the front of Lee's right, from Hamilton's crossing down to Port Royal, with the 33,000 well-tried men of the Second corps. Of the two divisions of Longstreet that remained with Lee, McLaws held the front, from Jackson's left to opposite Banks' ford, with 8,000 men; Anderson's 8,000 extended McLaws' left well toward Chancellorsville (to Mott's run), while Stuart's 2,700 cavalrymen watched the fords of the Rappahannock up to the Orange & Alexandria railroad crossing. Hooker had opposed Burnside's plan of campaign against Lee, and he now essayed to make trial of his own. He proposed to make a great show of having adopted Burnside's plan, by sending Sedgwick across the Rappahannock, at and below Fredericksburg, with three army corps, thus hoping to detain Lee in front of that desolated city while he, with four other army corps, m
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 resisted all the afternoon by Heths other division commander, being still absent with his command. The divisions of Getty, Birney, Mott, two brigades of Hancock and two of Barlow were composed of seventynine regiments. The two divisg columns against the works held by Doles and his three Georgia regiments. Upton was followed by Mott's division of Hancock's corps. This division numbered seventeen regiments. The attack of the fieral Ewell, 100 dead men in the works and many outside of them. Upton states his loss at 1,000. Mott's division did not follow closely Upton's lead, and it seems to have been more easily repulsed. in the Ninth corps in an assault at 4 o'clock on the morning of the 12th. Barlow's, Birney's and Mott's divisions were massed during the night in front of Johnson's position. Gibbon's division was m
the Second corps carried an important redoubt, with three guns and a large part of the garrison. Mott's division of the same corps was then pushed forward to the Boydton road, but found the rebels oned to send another division to the support of Miles. He went himself with Hays's division, while Mott took position on the left of the line encircling Petersburg. Sheridan meantime had sent Merrits with a personal interview, and at six o'clock Meade issued his orders to the corps commanders. Mott's division of the Second corps was on the extreme left of the investing force, nearest the river, and Meade instructed Wright: Send Mott up the River road to join Humphreys as soon as possible. Move with your whole corps at once, following Mott, and keeping control of him until he shall report tMott, and keeping control of him until he shall report to Humphreys. To Parke, Meade said: Leaving one division to guard Petersburg and the railroad, move with the rest of your command up the Cox road. At the same time Grant dispatched an officer to She
