nto Maryland at all by reminding him of his (Longstreet's) experiences in Mexico, where, on several of Manassas, it was hardly necessary in General Longstreet to recur to Mexican experiences in ordercrossing the Potomac, it is evident from General Longstreet's article that Lee unfortunately refusedected at Harper's Ferry. He proposed to General Longstreet, it seems, to carry out this plan, but fg the history of this accident further. General Longstreet thinks that McClellan might have gotten ance of the order infinitely higher than General Longstreet does. He gave vent to demonstrations ofng in their retreat they ran foul of some of Longstreet's trains near Sharpsburg and did some damageausting one to the Confederate army.

armies approached the capital, they dropped the title of armies, and took the names of the corps and divisions which they were afterwards to bear, with few modifications, to the end of the war. The Army of the Potomac became the First corps, Longstreet's, including the army of the Peninsula, which became Magruder's division, and afterwards McLaws's, and then Kershaw's. The Army of Norfolk becoming Huger's division, afterwards Mahone's and then Wright's. The Army of the Valley and the Army of ons of Pope's vain-glorious dispatches, nor of Doubleday's sensational and egotistical account of Gettysburg, nor yet the absurd mis-statements of Badeau; nor need we fear on our side that Jackson's reputation will suffer from the criticisms of Longstreet. In conclusion, my comrades, let me allude to an incident which has happened since this address has been written, which has touched the hearts of the stricken city from which I come, and which I am sure will appeal to yours.

burg, in which, as Colonel of his regiment, he bore a brave part, he was advanced to the grade of Brigadier-General and assigned to the command of the Tenth, Fiftieth, Fifty-third, and Fifty-fifth regiments, Georgia infantry, McLaws's division, Longstreet's corps, Army of Northern Virginia. With this brigade he continued to share the perils, the privations, and the glories of that hitherto invincible army until, on the 10th of April, 1865, it was, in the language of its illustrious commander, a, and accepted service in the field with the rank of Brigadier-General. His brigade was composed of the Second, Fifteenth, Seventeenth, and Twentieth regiments, Georgia infantry, and the First regiment of Georgia regulars. It formed a part of Longstreet's corps, Army of Northern Virginia. To his imperious spirit, unused to subjection and unaccustomed to brook the suggestions and commands of others, the discipline and exactions of a military life were most irksome, and sometimes the orders e

Ferry and come to Lee's assistance, General Anderson's command, in common with the other brigades of the divison, was subjected to one of the most trying ordeals of the war. That one division, alone and unaided (until late in the afternoon when Longstreet arrived) stood as firm as the everlasting hills which surrounded it, and resisted the assaults of the larger part of McClellan's whole army, which was hurled against it all day in successive masses. Here, as usual, Anderson distinguished himsethree days after the fight at South Mountain, and D. H. Hill's division, with Anderson's brigade on its right, wearied and worn out by continuous marching and fighting, took position in the centre of the line on the left of the Boonsboro road. Longstreet was on the right, and Jackson, who had captured Harper's Ferry with its little army and all its supplies, occupied the extreme left. McClellan and Lee at last stood face to face. General McClellan said, before the Committee of Investigation

Anderson, McLaws and Wilcox, between Sedgwick and Hooker's main army,— with twenty thousand men; Hooker's main army ninety thousand strong—between Lee and Stuart; Stuart, now commanding Stonewall Jackson's corps, with twenty-five thousand men; all stretched along a straight road within a space of twelve miles. Who could foretell the result of this mighty, but unfinished contest? Who could estimate its vast complications? Stonewall Jackson was wounded, and lay languishing upon his litter; Longstreet and D. H. Hill were absent. Robert E. Lee alone, of all the master spirits of the struggling hosts, could comprehend the situation, and by his mastery over that situation successfully worked out the result, and illustrated his vast superiority over all the great captains that opposed him. With the genius that never deserted him in his greatest trials, he boldly issued his orders. Barksdale was ordered to hold back any Federal force left in Fredericksburg, Stuart and Anderson were ordere

tely invincible. He defended Jackson against the statement made by some of his warmest admirers (even Dr. Dabney in his biography) that he was not fully himself in failing to force the passage of White Oak swamp to go to the help of A. P. Hill at Frazier's Farm. He said that he thought that a careful study of the topography would show that Franklin's position was the real obstacle to Jackson's crossing. He spoke warmly of the magnificent fight which A. P. Hill, afterwards supported by Longstreet, made that day—a battle which he witnessed—and told some interesting incidents concerning it. Early in the day he met General Lee near the front, and at once accosted him with Why, General, what are you doing here? You are in too dangerous a position for the commander of the army. I am trying, was the reply, to find out something about the movements and plans of those people. But you must excuse me, Mr. President, for asking what you are doing here, and for suggesting that this is

the Fourth North Carolina, at the battle of Seven Pines lost four hundred and sixty-two men, killed and wounded, out of five hundred and twenty, and twenty-four out of twenty-seven officers. Of the four divisions—D. H. Hill's, A. P. Hill's, Longstreet's and Jackson's—which assailed and put to rout McClellan's right on the Chickahominy, there were ninety-two regiments, of which forty-six regiments were North Carolinians. This statement I make upon the authority of one of the division commannd clothing more than sufficient for the supply of the North Carolina troops, but large quantities were turned over to the Confederate government for the troops of other States. In the winter succeeding the battle of Chickamauga, I sent to General Longstreet's corps fourteen thousand suits of clothing complete. At the surrender of General Johnston the State had on hand, ready-made and in cloth, ninety-two thousand suits of uniform, with great stores of blankets, leather, etc., the greater part
