Under Jackson's example doubts and delays would have been replaced by decisions and prompt action, and in all probability the Federal army would, notwithstanding General Meade's ability and energy, have been defeated in detail before the short time at his disposal enabled him to concentrate his scattered corps. Jackson on Ewell. What General Jackson thought of General Ewell's services may be inferred from Dr. Dabney's account of an interview between Jackson and Mr. Boteler, held July, 1862, while the army was confronting McClellan at Harrison's Landing. General Jackson advised an immediate invasion of the North, and asked Mr. Boteler to impress his vie

ht-inch sea coast howitzer, four smooth bore thirty-two pounders, and one ten-inch sea coast mortar; in all thirteen guns, besides one light battery.

For more than an hour this fierce artillery conflict continued, when the Federal guns began to slacken their fire under the heavy blows of the Confederate batteries, and ere long sank into silence. General Howard in an article in the Atlantic Monthly, in speaking of the effect produced by this splendid work of the artillery at Gettysburg, says: I have thought that the fearful exposure of General Meade's headquarters, where so much havoc was occasioned by the enemy's artillery, had so impressed him, that he did not at first realize the victory he had won. But Gettysburg was not the only field of which I wish to speak. In his report of the first battle of Fredericksburg, General Lee says: The artillery rendered efficient service on every part of the field, and greatly assisted in the defeat of the enemy. The batteries were exposed to an unusually heavy fire of artillery and i

According to abstracts of returns for General Meade's army, June 30th, the day before the battle, he had, ild of battle, from first to last, an army of 70,000. General Meade's abstract of June 30th, for present equipped, was 98,150. This would give General Meade 28,150 in excess of General Lee. The student of history in the far-off future, when readi357.)

M. on the 4th General Meade says that he would make a reconnoisance the next day (5to which add 23,003, losses in the battle, and it gives General Meade 90,003 as present in the fight or on the field. Even on this basis, General Meade had 20,000 more soldiers present on the field than had General Lee. While the Federals reaped wo days after the battle, and that it was ten months before Meade's army was ready for an advance on Richmond, shows at what
