s Light Division, which, with the rest of the army, was driving McClellan towards the Federal gunboats on James river. The battery was then assigned to Maj. R. Lindsay Walker's Battalion of Light Artillery, and the scene of operations having shifted to Northern Virginia, we were soon on the road to Culpeper, and on the 9th of Acompany now reside in Richmond. The history of the Crenshaw Battery is the history of Pegram's Battalion, the history of Pegram's Battalion is that of General R. Lindsay Walker's Third Artillery Corps, and when a true story of the prowess of the Army of Northern Virginia is written the deeds of this organization will shine forth served until surrender.

s W. Pegram, and nephew of Colonel Geo. H. Pegram, the Confederate commander of the battle of Rich Mountain. W. J. Pegram left the study of law at the University of Virginia in April, 1861, and enlisted as a private in F Company, of Richmond, Va. Willie Pegram was of small stature and wore glasses, but he was every inch a soldier, and born to command. While in camp at Fredericksburg, Va., in May, 1861, he was elected a lieutenant of the Purcell Battery of Artillery, commanded by Captain R. Lindsay Walker (subsequently Brigadier-General), and distinguished himself by conspicious gallantry at Manassas, Cedar Run, Chancellorville and Gettysburg, attaining the rank of Lieutenant-Colonel of Artillery. Under an act of the Congress of the Confederate States he was appointed to the provisional rank of Brigadier General, in March, 1865, and ordered to report to General R. E. Lee. He was assigned to the command of a brigade, and was killed in front of Petersburg, Va., April 2, 1865.—edito

Hill's corps, under the command of Brigadier-General R. Lindsay Walker, and the artillery of R. H. Anderson's corps, under the command of Colonel H. P. Jones. Sheridan evidently did not understand the situation, for this artillery—about one-half the artillery of Lee's army, without any infantry or cg nearly the whole night of the 8th in marching around Sheridan, in the attempt to reunite the army, when it was light, finding that was impossible, Jones' artillery moved on to Lynchburg and reported to General L. L. Lomax, in command there, and Walker buried his guns near an old church and disbanded his command. On the 9th General Lee ordered Gordon and Fitz Lee to drive Sheridan away, that the army might resume its march, which they did very promptly, but found that Ord was there also and
a weakness allied to generosity, and has proven detrimental to the efficiency of so many regiments that the abuse has assumed its most fearful proportions, and demands the strong hand of power to stop it suddenly. I am only sorry that the Government has turned over to the Legislature the duty of putting an end to a trade the vilest and most hurtful in its effects to man. We have been somewhat more free from the disorders incident to the sale of liquor to soldiers since the order of Generate Walker. I have frequently heard the most earnest appeals since that order went into effect, but I believe that with very few exceptions it has not been violated. The General has made himself very unpopular with his men; he has, firstly, been very strict in the giving of furloughs, and secondly, he has enforced discipline in his camp--two sources of the most grievous complaints against him. His men remark they are not "soldiers" in the strict sense of the term; had they enlisted in the Confederate
