Emmettsburg road, between the peach-orchard and little Round Top, became a sanguinary battle-field. Caldwell advanced gallantly, with the brigades of cross and Kelly in the front. Presently his second line, composed of the brigades of Brooke and Zook, were pushed forward. The strife was fierce, and in it cross this was the gallant Colonel Edward E. Cross, of the famous fighting Fifth New Hampshire (see note 1, page 411, volume II.), who was now in command of a brigade. He was one of the m see peace, and our country restored. I have done my duty. I think the boys will miss me. All my effects I give to my mother. Oh, welcome, death! say farewell to all. then his mind wandered. He commenced giving commands, when he expired. and Zook were mortally wounded, and Brooke severely so. Firmly the Nationals held the line for some time against odds, assisted by the regulars, under General Ayres, on the left; but Caldwell was finally compelled to fall back, with a loss of nearly one-ha

that place with Columbia. Without wasting time or labor on Branchville or Charleston, which Sherman knew the Confederates would no longer hold, he-now turned all his columns straight on Columbia. The Seventeenth Corps pushed the foe across the Congaree, Feb. 14. forcing him to burn the bridges, and then followed the State road directly for the capital of South Carolina, while the Fifteenth crossed the South Edisto from Poplar Spring at Schilling's Bridge, and reached the State road at Zeigler's. They found the Confederates in strong force at a bridge over the Congaree Creek, which was defended by a heavy battery on the north side, that swept it, and a weaker one at the head of the bridge, on the south side. This tete-du-pont was turned by the division of General C. R. Woods, by sending Stone's brigade through a cypress swamp on the left. The Confederates fled after trying in vain to burn the bridge. Over it the main column of the Fifteenth passed, and bivouacked that night ne

the railway leading from the former place with one from Fernandina. The army moved in three columns, under the respective commands of Colonels C. C. Barton of the Forty-eighth New York, J. R. Hawley of the Seventh Connecticut, and Guy V. Henry of the Fortieth Massachusetts. The latter led the cavalry, and was in the advance. It was known that General Joseph Finnegan Joseph Finnegan was a resident of Jackson, and was President of the Florida Secession Convention, in 1861.--See notice of Yulee's letter to him, on page 166, volume I. was in command of the Confederates in that region, but their number and strength were not exactly computed; so the army moved cautiously. It was soon ascertained that Finnegan was encamped a dozen miles from Jacksonville, and it was determined to surprise him. That duty was assigned to Henry, who moved on with his horsemen, a horse battery, and the Fortieth Massachusetts, while the infantry bivouacked. He passed along a road, through a dark pine fore

The writer and his friends already mentioned (Messrs. Buckingham and Young), visited this stanch Virginia Unionist, when on our way homeward from Staunton, mentioned on page 401, volume II. We had passed the preceding night and part of the day before at Culpepper Court-House and in visiting the battle-ground at Cedar Mountain. See page 448, volume II. At Culpepper Court-House we hired a carriage to convey us to Brandy Station, and our route lay across Mr. Botts's estate. We found him at home, and were very cordially received. The region just about him was a so
ited in praise of the young leader, and there was joy in every loyal heart because of his achievements. Art and song celebrated Sheridan's ride from Winchester to the front; and when, less than three weeks afterward, General McClellan resigned, Nov. 4, 1864. and thereby created a vacant major-generalship in the regular army, the victor in the Shenandoah Valley was substantially rewarded by a commission to fill his place. The writer, with friends already mentioned (Messrs. Buckingham and Young), visited the theater of Sheridan's exploits in the Shenandoah Valley, from the Opequan and Winchester to Fisher's Hill, early in October, 1866. See page 400, volume II. We left Gettysburg in a carriage, for Harper's Ferry, on the morning of the first, and followed the line of march of the corps of Howard and Sickles, when moving northward from Frederick, in the summer of 1863. See page 59. We passed through the picturesque region into which the road to Emmettsburg led us, with the Sou
inefelter, a theological student, formed a company, and marched for Harrisburg on the 17th of June. These were the first to be mustered into the service for the emergency. --See Jacob's Rebel Invasion, &c., page 10. Still farther northward Ewell advanced in two columns, Rodes's division pushing on through Carlisle to Kingston, June 27. within thirteen miles of Harrisburg, while Early's division marched up the eastern side of the South Mountain range, and through Emmettsburg, Gettysburg, and York, to the banks of the Susquehanna at Wrightsville, opposite Columbia, levying contributions on the people, and destroying bridges along the line of the Northern Central railway, which connects that region with Baltimore. The great railway bridge that spanned the Susquehanna between Wrightsville and Columbia was fired by National troops at the latter place, under Colonel Frick, and was in flames when the Confederates came up. As General Lee's errand was partly a political one, and there was
hundred horse-power, mounting four heavy guns. His own loss, he said, was only thirty-five killed and wounded. A little later in the year, Plymouth, near the mouth of the Roanoke River, in North Carolina, was attacked by about seven thousand Confederates under General R. F. Hoke. These consisted of three infantry brigades, a regiment of cavalry, and seven batteries. The post was fairly fortified, and was held by General H. W. Wessells, with the Eighty-fifth New Plymouth in 1864, York, One Hundred and First, and One Hundred and Third Pennsylvania, Sixteenth Connecticut, and six companies from other regiments; numbering, in all, about twenty-four hundred men. In the river, in front of the town, were the gun-boats Southfield, Miami, and Bombshell. A short distance — up the river was an out-post called Fort Warren. Hoke approached Plymouth so secretly, that he was within two miles of Fort Warren before Wessells was apprised of his proximity. That out-post was first assai
