les around Richmond, just forty years ago—June 26 to July 1, 1862.
It was on Thursday afternoon, June 26th, that General A. P. Hill opened the series with his battle at Beaver Dam creek, near Mechanicsville.
It was not intended that this battle sget into the desired position, but valor got the better of discretion this time, and, though the attack was made by General A. P. Hill with characteristic impetuosity, it was but to be repulsed that afternoon with the loss of many brave men.
That all of it except the battle of McDowell and the advance to Franklin—got into position.
The attacks of Longstreet and A. P. Hill, Whiting, and Hood, though sometimes repulsed, finally carried the apparently impregnable position.
Hood's Texans claid objurgation.
Old Jack certainly did not come up to the Valley.
We had to lie there all day and let Longstreet and A. P. Hill fight the notable battle of Glendale, or Frazier's farm, on that memorable Monday, June 30th, without our assistance, w
