Chapter 29: skirmishing at Mine Run. General Lee had discovered that the enemy was crossing sole position, I determined to fall back across Mine Run about two miles in our rear, where I had obsedarkness, the divisions were withdrawn across Mine Run, my own and Rodes' on the stone pike, and Joht I found his skirmishers on the hills beyond Mine Run. The line on the west bank was now taken andThe enemy's position on the opposite banks of Mine Run was also a strong one for defence, the ground necessity of having to descend the slopes to Mine Run and then after crossing that stream to ascendhe line occupied by me was on the left, where Mine Run made a turn somewhat around that flank, so as for a time.

As soon as this was discovered I moved forward with the whole corps on the stone pike and then towards Germana Ford, capturing some two or three hundred prisoners, but the enemy's main force had crossed the river early in the morning. Though Meade's performance on this occasion was somewhat like that of a King of France on a certain occasion, yet he had not failed to accomplish something towards the suppression of the rebellion. There was a little tanyard near Locust Grove, in sight of his headquarters, which belonged to and was operated by a poor man who took in hides to tan on shares for the neighbors, but who was in no wise engaged in tanning for the government or the soldiers.

While we were endeavoring to find out all we could across the Zoar Church road so as to connect with Rodes' left. Anderson's division of Hill's corps had been sent from the Plank road to my assistance, by General Lee, arriving about dark in rear of Hays' right, and before withdrawing my own troops I his whole force in our front; Hill's corps, which had come up, having taken position on my right extending across to the Plank road, and covering that also. Some skirmish firing ensued between the advance line of skirmishers, but no serious mor left, yet he did not do so. At the same time there had been indications of a purpose to attack our right beyond the Plank road, and corresponding movements were made to meet an attack there.

A strong line of pickets having been posted in front, the troops lay down on their arms a short time before day to rest from their fatigue. In the affair between Johnson's division and the enemy's 3rd corps, there was some loss of valuable officers and men in killed and wounded, among the former being Randolph of the Stonewall Brigade, and among the latter Brigadier General J. M. Jones; but a much heavier loss was inflicted on the enemy. After light on the morning of the 28th I rode to see General Lee at Verdierville for the purpose of advising him fully of the condition of things and receiving his further instructions.

His brigades behaved w from his left and sent to Johnson's assistance, but before it arrived the action had closed. Johnson's division did not then exceed 4,000 men, if it reached that number. The two corps moving against it numbered not less than 30,000 men, though French's corps, the 3rd, was the only one which became actually engaged. This affair satisfied me that the enemy's whole army was in the immediate neighborhood, and as Ewell's corps, under my command, was then in a most unfavorable position, I deter
