e division was surprised, it made a gallant fight and did not surrender until late in the afternoon—about half-past 5 o'clock, says General Prentiss. General Beauregard, who took command of the Confederates upon the death of General Albert Sidney Johnston, says: By 5 o'clock the whole Federal army except Prentiss's division with a part of W. H. L. Wallace's, had receded to the river bank, and the indomitable force which under Prentiss still contested the field was being environed on its left by brigades from the divisions of Breckinridge, Cheatham, and Withers, in that quarter. It remains to be said that Prentiss was equally encompassed on the other flank by a part of Ruggle's division together with some of General Polk's corps. Thus surrounded on all sides that officer whose division had been the first to come into collision with us that morning, stoutly keeping the field to the last, was now forced to surrender in person, just after 5:30 P. M., with some 2,200 officers and men.

rprised the premises at 6 o'clock, and the soldiers began firing from their horses over the high board fence that inclosed the garden. It was from this fire that General Morgan received his death wound. The bullet entered his back, penetrating the heart, and death was instantaneous. He left the house as soon as he heard the firing, and walked down the garden. He was only partially dressed, and had on neither coat nor hat. Captain Rogers, of his staff, was captured in the house, and Colonel Withers, Adjutant-General, and Captain Hines were discovered in the chapel at the end of the garden. A private of the 10th Tennessee Cavalry, named Andrew Campbell, claimed to have shot General Morgan, and with the assistance of a comrade, placed the body across his horse and rode with it about half a mile, when General Gillem and I met him. We both denounced Campbell's conduct, had the remains placed upon a caisson and carried back to Mrs. Williams' house, where they were decently cared for

Brigadier-General Clarke, respectively, of two brigades each. The Second, under Major-General Bragg, was arranged in two divisions also, commanded by Brigadier-General Withers and Ruggles, with three brigades each, and numbered about fifteen thousand men. The Third Corps, commanded by Major-General Hardee, was formed of thre conduct of their officers, and forced the Yankees back. It was a desperate fight, and the ground was strewn with dead Federals and Confederates. By this time Withers' Division of Bragg's Corps, with a portion of Hardee's Corps, which had become detached from his main force, massed on Breckinridge, whose position was the extremward with vigor, while the Confederates were ordered to retire slowly and concentrate their strength. About 8 o'clock General Hardee had massed his own corps and Withers' Division of Bragg's Corps, and the fighting began in good earnest. Nelson's advance was checked, but he quickly pushed forward Hazen's Brigade of regulars, an

e officers and men. Many long rides were taken to Hanover Junction, to Fredericksburg, and to other points after hay and oats for the horses, as well as for articles shipped for the use of the men, mainly clothing and shoes, with which they were illy supplied. In company with Major Gordon of the 6th Alabama, and brother of Gen. John B. Gordon, and Capt. J. W. McNeely, of my company, I frequently made visits to the charming young ladies living near our camp. The Misses Lawrence, Parrish, Withers and others were all of them musical ladies and gracious and hospitable. The latter part of April we broke camp, and on the 1st of May General Hooker crossed the Rappahannock between Fredericksburg, and Spotsylsvania, near Chancellorsville, and on the third the great battle by that name was fought, and, the idol of the army, General Lee's right arm, Stonewall Jackson, was killed by mistake by a detachment from a North Carolina regiment. This battle was, without doubt, one of the grandes

esday morning, however, the Confederate Army was all astir, and, after a hasty, scanty breakfast, the lines were formed. The 3rd Corps, under Major-General Hardee, 6,789 artillery and infantry, augmented by Gladden's Brigade, 2,235 strong, of Withers' Division, 2nd Corps, constituted the first line of about 8,500 bayonets, deployed in battle order on the grounds upon which they had bivouacked. The second line, 500 yards rearward, of some 10,000 bayonets, was formed of Ruggles' and two brin front of Nelson, were the first to become engaged. Nelson came out with vigor, and the Confederates retired slowly to concentrate their strength. By 8 o'clock, Hardee, however, had massed in that quarter a number of his own corps, as well as Withers' Division of Bragg's, and the combat began in good earnest. Nelson now found a lion in his path, but Hazen's Brigade pushed forward with decided pluck, and the Confederates were driven from their position with the loss of a battery. A well-tim

th may be expected to employ on all occasions. It may be added, also, that of the other ministers, Mr. Hallet, if not Mr. Withers, appear in a great measure to have adopted the same views, and to have acted on the same principle. In 1715, a vacaoly Ghost, were called the one God. The orthodox party only answered by dwelling upon consequences. At this meeting, Mr. Withers delivered an able and elaborate speech against the course proposed; arguing strongly both against tests in general, a in scripture words. Mr. Hallet in like manner refused his assent. Mr. Lavington of course gave it without reserve. Mr. Withers offered them this explication in the words of Bishop Pearson: though the Father and the Son are two distinct persons, ve of the manner of doing it. Of the three suspected ministers, Peirce and Hallet only were ultimately ejected; for Mr. Withers, notwithstanding the firmness and decision with which he had remonstrated against the first inquisitorial proceedings,

rought them successively into action, where he sees that Hardee needs support. Three of these brigades, composing the division of Ruggles, have crossed the ravine which covers Sherman's front, and press upon the whole of his line. On the left, Withers, with the remainder of the second corps, resumes the fight against the remnants of the two brigades of Prentiss, and thus enables Hardee to re-form his troops. The latter takes advantage of this to penetrate into the interval which has remaineded a kind of second line, became engaged in their turn. The first of these two generals had sent the brigade of McArthur to Stewart's assistance, but it had not reached this general, and, while looking for him, it had met the enemy's brigade of Withers, near the positions where Prentiss was endeavoring to rally the remnant of his troops. It was joined by Hurlbut's division, before which the Confederates halted a while. Unfortunately for him, Prentiss persisted in defending a clearing situate

sent to him from Chattanooga to the army of the Mississippi. This army was divided into two corps; the right, under Polk, comprised the divisions of Cheatham and Withers, the left, under Hardee, the divisions of Anderson and Buckner. These divisions were much stronger than those of the Federals; they were composed of at least foulumns were spaced along parallel roads from Lebanon on the right to Shelbyville on the left. Acting upon this supposition, he divided Polk's corps, took from it Withers' division, which he sent to reinforce Kirby Smith, and ordered him to go with Cheatham's division to join Hardee at Perryville. His intention was to take commandevening of the 9th. The next day they crossed Duck River and took position at Bryantsville, while Kirby Smith, recalled in great haste, brought his own corps and Withers' division to Harrodsburg on the same day. On the 11th the whole Confederate army was at last concentrated around Bryantsville. After crossing Chaplin's Creek,

This affair, which was soon interrupted by etween the river and the Wilkinson road, with Withers' division in first line and that of Cheatham ut his two fine divisions in motion. That of Withers occupied the front line behind the breastworkf these two lines to Cheatham and the left to Withers. The attack would thus be made by two masses whose right was already menaced by Cleburne; Withers to engage Negley and the right of Palmer, for after Cheatham's first attack upon Sheridan, Withers, on his right, had directed one of his brigadng the Confederate centre to support him, and Withers received an order to attack the Federals postaw Negley driven out of the wood by Cheatham, Withers, on the right of the latter, concentrated allatham, while a vigorous effort on the part of Withers drove the brigades of Cruft and Grose upon t[3 more...]
