It is said that after his information-seeking overlook of thired toward Flat run, thus covering Ewell's front, which, as reformed, had Rodes' division on the right of the old turnpike with Johnson's on his left, followed by Early, extending the line to and beyond Flat run, where an open field furnished excellent positions for batteries, which were also placed along the cross road leading to flanks. As Lee moved to assault the Federal left on the plank road, Ewell detached Johnson's and Gordon's brigades from his extreme left, under the leadership of Early, to wheel to the right, from their intrenchments, fall upon Sedgwick's right flank, and sweep the rear of his breastworks.

Held back by Hampton and Early, the most. of Hancock's corps had been detained on the Brock road, near and beill's corps, across the Po, by a circuit to the southward, under the command of Early, who, moved into line across the Louisa road, fell upon Hancock's flank and reair lines with a view of passing toward Richmond on that side. Hancock found Early, at the open place Grant was seeking, the next morning. At 11 of the morning oed all attempts to reinforce the gallant Upton. The Confederate right, under Early, was also attacked, several times, during the 10th, by Burnside's corps, on theied the extreme left of the salient, in attack upon Hancock's right; while from Early's command, the Third corps, came the brigades of McGowan and Harris, following
he 27th of May, Lee ordered the Second corps, now temporarily under Early, to march southward, between the two railways, then cross the Centro divisions of Hill's to the right. In concluding he said: General Early, with Ewell's corps and Heth's division, occupied our left, ande enemy's right flank and drive him down in front of our line. General Early made the movement in the forenoon, and drove the enemy from histended the right to the Chickahominy, while the Second corps, under Early, extended Lee's line to the left, covering the roads leading from t In the afternoon of the 2d, Lee took the offensive, by ordering Early to assail Grant's right and sweep down toward his left; but he founs—an expedition which came to grief, through the operations of General Early, as related in a subsequent chapter.

Aided by these, General Early wrote and published his brief, truth-telling narrative of the events of these campaigns. The Federal reports of thes in the Official Records, are voluminous, and numbers of the officers connected with the portion of the Federal army that Early contended with, have published narratives and magazine articles concerning these unique and but little understood campaigmunications with one of his principal bases of supplies, but also the rear of his army.

regiment of infantry. Joining his regiment at Manassas he rendered efficient special service to General Beauregard in procuring him 200 wagons. He was in battle at Blackburn's ford, and on July 21st, assigned to the brigade commanded by Col. Jubal A. Early, he aided in striking the final blow on the extreme left of the Federal line, which immediately preceded the rout of McDowell's forces. Three days after this battle his regiment was assigned to the brigade commanded by General Longstreet,te in 1852, and until the outbreak of the war, was mainly engaged as a planter. He went into the Confederate service as lieutenant-colonel of the Thirtieth Virginia mounted infantry, organized at Lynchburg, May 8, 1861, and mustered in by Col. Jubal A. Early. This was the first mounted regiment organized in Virginia, and under the command of Col. R. C. W. Radford, was in Beauregard's army at the battle of First Manassas.

onclusion of the address the Friendship Band played Dixie's Land. As soon as the crowd caught the old familiar air of Dixie there was an outburst of applause. The veterans' yelling and waving handkerchiefs, hats, lasted for several minutes. Congressman Charles E. Hooker was then introduced, and was received with applause. He apologized for not having manuscript, saying it was a task for him to write since the loss of his arm. He appeared dressed in Confederate gray, as did the late General Early, who delivered the annual memorial address here in 1889. An empty sleeve—a remembrance of the Vicksburg seige—was, as Captain Williams happily remarked in introducing him, the most honorable badge with which he could be decorated. For a man who has borne such a conspicuous part in the history of the South for the past thirty-five years, his appearance is youthful. Entering the army as a private, he rose to the rank of colonel of his regiment. He was one of the counsel assigned by

he frozen echoes of the morning with the thunder of his guns and the sound of a great victory, and thus poured the living tide of hope into the bosoms of our forefathers. While there are monuments to him—one the highest on earth; while a monument has lately gone up to his mother; while monuments to our heroes stand all over the land, yet we want a monument in which should be represented the mothers, wives, daughters, and sisters of R. E. Lee, Stonewall Jackson, Albert Sidney Johnston, Jubal A. Early, G. T. Beauregard, J. E. B. Stuart, George E.

n front. The corps was on daily duty as scouts and flank pickets on the line of march, and at Spotsylvania Courthouse were deployed on an extended line from the extreme right of our division — a position they held while the brigade was moved to the left in support of other troops where they engaged in this hard-fought battle. They subsequently were sent to the extreme left, and across the river Po to meet a flanking column of the enemy, whose intention it was to turn our left flank. General Early, who conducted this movement, pushed the sharpshooters rapidly forward, following with his line of battle, broke through the marching column, capturing a great many prisoners, and routing the remainder. At Jericho's Ford on the North Anna river, near Verdon station, in Hanover county, the corps of sharpshooters accomplished Zzzone of their best efforts. The enemy had commenced crossing the ford before the head of our column, which was the leading division, had reached the locali
