History of Lane's North Carolina brigade. By Gen. James H. Lane. Battle of Jericho Ford — report of General Lane. Headquarters Lane's brigade, September 20, 1864. Major,--I have the honor to report that we left the church in the neighborhood of Spotsylvania Courthouse after dark on the 21st of May, marched until 2 o'clock that night, resumed our march at 4 1/2 o'clock on the morning of the 22d, and bivouaced about noon that day near Hewlett's Station, on the Central railroad. At 6 o'clock A. M., on the 23d, we moved still further down the railroad, and about noon went into camp close to the South Anna river and near Anderson's Station. That afternoon we were ordered up the railroad, formed line of battle on the right of McGowan, perpendicular to the road, and threw forward a portion of our sharp-shooters. The Seventh regiment was soon afterwards detached to guard a ford on the river. We were subsequently ordered still further up the road — our sharp-shooters being lef

is the highest honor that could be paid to North Carolina. Let every soldier treasure it up as a memento of inestimable value: Headquarters army of Northern Virginia, August 29th, 1864. His Excellency Z. B. Vance, Governor of North Carolina: * * * * * * * * * I have been frequently called upon to mention the services of North Carolina soldiers in this army, but their gallantry and conduct were never more deserving the admiration than in the engagement at Reames's Station on the 25th instant. The brigades of Generals Cook, McRae and Lane, the last under the temporary command of General Conner, advanced through a thick abattis of felled trees under a heavy fire of musketry and artillery, and carried the enemy's works with a steady courage, that elicited the warm commendation of their corps and division commanders and the admiration of the army. * * * * * I am with great respect your obedient servant, R. E. Lee, General. What President Davis said. At Charlotte, du
