Robert Stiles, Four years under Marse Robert, Chapter 7: the Peninsula Campaign. (search)
due time we made our landing and found our place in the peninsular lines of Yorktown and Warwick River, which were admirably adapted to the purpose for which General Magruder designed and located them; namely, to enable a small body of troops to hold the position-but for occupation by a large army they were simply execrable. Therrong memoir on this battle, from which it would seem well nigh impossible to draw any other conclusions. He makes substantially the following points: General Magruder had built, and was commended for building, a chain of redoubts across the Peninsula from the York to the James, as a second line; Fort Magruder, a strong cloey ought to have been informed. Furthermore, it is evident that if a single general officer upon our side was fully informed as to — the entire line, it was General Magruder, who built it, and who, it seems, took no part in this battle. Indeed, as I remember, he had been sent on toward Richmond. As above intimated, it would see

y heights at Gaines' Mill and the positions at Mechanicsville and Cold Harbor. We were ill General Magruder's command and were kept most of the time hitched up and ready to move at a moment's warningunded, but there were no serious casualties. On the 29th of June-Sunday, I think it was-General Magruder advanced his troops along the Nine-Mile road to feel the enemy, when the main thing that stup, a number of Federal batteries, invisible to us, opened upon it and upon the troops, and General Magruder sent an order for our guns to cross the railroad by the bridge hard by and come into batter remarked upon our performance of two days ago, at the railroad bridge and in the field, as General Magruder had also; that nothing could have been more soldierly, and having thus shown ourselves equas upon a scene no ways calculated to impart hot stomach for battle. The six brigades of General Magruder's command-Barksdale's, to which we were attached, being one-had arrived at Frazier's farm t

ll, and McClellan was permitted to reach and occupy the strong position which saved his army and cost the lives of thousands of ours. And even this was not all. Magruder, a most vigorous officer, to whose command we were attached, lost his way and thus delayed the attack and gave McClellan further time for his dispositions. And its defense. Considerable delay was occasioned in the pursuit from the fact that the ground was unknown to the Confederate commanders. On this occasion General Magruder took the wrong route and had to be recalled, thereby losing much precious time; and when after serious and provoking delay the lines were formed for attack, he third time traced the failure of the plans of the Confederates to the incompetence or to the delinquency of guides,--in the misleading of Holmes and Huger, of Magruder, and now of Longstreet,--it seems proper to remark that the entire region which was the theatre of the Seven Days battles is, for the most part, covered by heavy

eive them in a few moments; that Robert Stiles must not report to him until further orders; that he didn't want any untried man about him when about to move. The relations of our captain to the better soldiers in the battery were peculiar and enjoyable. On duty he was our commanding officer, off duty our intimate friend. I used to call him the intelligent young Irishman, and to tell the following story in explanation: Just before the Howitzers left Richmond, in the spring of 1861, General Magruder called upon Major Randolph to send him a suitable man for a courier, adding, intelligent young Irishman preferred and McCarthy was sent as filling the bill. The captain had long been laying for me, as the saying is, and now he had his revenge-Old Jack had conferred upon me orthodox Presbyterian baptism as the untried man, and so far as the captain was concerned, certainly the name stuck. What would he and I have given, two or three days later, to recall the action of the next few mo
