g an account of the treatment received when a prisoner, says: All this brutal punishment was inflicted upon us, according to the statement of the Confederate prison officials, on account of those papers said to have been found on the body of Colonel Dahlgren at the time he was killed. But the name of Colonel Dahlgren can never be injured by any slander or forgery that can be concocted by all the enemies of our country. His deeds speak for themselves. His career with Sigel, Burnside, Hooker, Meade and Kilpatrick, together with his exploits at Fredericksburg, Beverley Ford, Chambersburg and in front of Richmond, will live when the name of the last traitor in the land is forgotten. I pronounce those papers a base forgery, and will give some of my reasons for so doing. I was with the expedition in the capacity of signal officer, and was the only staff officer with him. I had charge of all the material for destroying bridges, blowing up locks, aqueducts, etc. I knew all his pl

charged by Northern writers) a Rebel forgery, but were actually found on the person of Colonel Dahlgren. We have delayed this publication from time to time for various reasons, chief among which was a desire to secure a paper prepared for Hon. A. H. Stephens by the late Rev. R. H. Bagby, D. D., who stood within a few feet of Colonel Dahlgren when he was shot. But we have determined to delay our task no longer, but to put the facts in our records, not to stir up bitter memories, but to vindiDahlgren's body; that he read them the next morning before there was any opportunity for any one to alter them, and that the publications in the Richmond papers were correct copies of the originals. Dr. Bagby wrote out his statement for Hon. A. H. Stephens, and the distinguished Georgian told us not long before his death that he remembered distinctly the statement, and would try to find it among his papers, but he died before sending it and we have not yet been able to recover it.

same. As proof of the genuineness of our photographs, we give the following letter from the engineer officer (Major Albert H. Campbell), under whose immediate supervision the photographic copies were made from the originals: Letter from MajorMajor Campbell. Charleston, Kanawha Co., W. Va., March 7th, 1874. Colonel George W. Munford, Secretary Southern Historical Society. Dear sir,—Enclosed I send you a photographic fac-simile of an address to his men, and a memorandum or draft of inen so pertinaciously and indignantly denied by Colonel Dahlgren's friends. Respectfully, your obedient servant, Albert H. Campbell, Late Major Confederate States Engineers, In charge Topographical Department, Department of Va. As for the chases testify that the papers were the same as those published. 6. We have photograph copies of the originals, which Major Campbell testifies were made under his own immediate supervision, which are identical with the published documents, and the wr

e here is longer necessary, I will cheerfully forego my visit home. I beg you will let me know what disposition, if any, you have made for the proposed relief of Butler's brigade, and what orders have been given to General Rosser. I forward General Young's report as to the recent crossing of the enemy at Ely's Ford. From this it appears that no blame can be attached to the officer commanding the pickets, but the line of pickets and couriers seems to have been defective. I shall give such inpposed to be coming to Ely's Ford. Part of Second Corps on same road. Whole army seems in motion. Sutlers and women ordered to rear. Acknowledge receipt of this. At 12:30 I sent the following message to General Stuart: Citizens report to General Young a Yankee cavalry brigade at Mount Pleasant, moving towards Central Road. No reports from pickets. Not hearing from General Stuart, at 10:30 P. M. the following message was sent to him: Enemy were at Beaver Dam at seven o'clock. North Carolin
Dahlgren's body was mutilated to the extent of cutting off a finger to get a ring he wore. I can name the man who did it, and I was the means of his sister, Miss M. M., getting it after the war. But the worst indignity was having his body taken up after we had him decently coffined and buried at Stevensville and taken to Richmond, and then taken out of the city and buried in an unknown grave so he could never be found His sister did find him, however, and he is now lying north of Mason and Dixon's line. This was done on their part on account of the papers said to have been found on his dead body. As to the papers, I don't believe he had any such, as has been claimed by the Confederates. The unfortunate raid cost me and others over five months close confinement, and treatment such as no brutes should receive. If M. Quad's query, Who sacrificed Dahlgren? has not been satisfactorily answered yet, let some one else try his hand. R. Bartley, Signal Officer United States Army. On
orce of infantry was posted at Fredericksburg, it could put such works across the Northern Neck that Kilpatrick could not get by without very great assistance from Meade. Perhaps, too, a battery on the lower Rappahannock might be of great service in preventing transports from approaching Urbanna. I advise that scouts should be sejured by any slander or forgery that can be concocted by all the enemies of our country. His deeds speak for themselves. His career with Sigel, Burnside, Hooker, Meade and Kilpatrick, together with his exploits at Fredericksburg, Beverley Ford, Chambersburg and in front of Richmond, will live when the name of the last traitor in those who respect the truth for its own sake. February, 1864, found General Lee's army wintering along the line of the Rapidan, in Orange county, Virginia. General Meade's opposing army was in winter quarters, in Culpeper county, on the line of the Rappahannock. During the latter part of that month, General Kilpatrick, a cav

negro who acted as guide, and offered to show them a ford near Dover Mills, was an utterly unjustifiable murder. We were in that neighborhood several years ago, saw the tree on which he was hung, and were told by an old resident of unimpeachable veracity that there was, and is, a ford at the point to which the negro conducted the column, which is passable nearly the whole year, but that the winter rains had swollen the James so that it was at that time unfordable. A statement in the Philadelphia Times several years ago by one of Dahlgren's officers, to the effect that a proof that there never was a ford there, and that the negro guide was a traitor, was found in the fact that he himself saw sloops passing up the river at that point, is as wild as the attempt to prove that the Dahlgren Papers were forged by Confederates. Every resident of this section, every schoolboy who has studied the geography of Virginia, knows that the James is not navigable above Richmond, and that no sloop w
cavalry on their horses, pointing their pistols at the windows. They then dismounted, came in, and took us all prisoners. I recollect of our party Colonel Hilary P. Jones (now teaching at an academy in Hanover county), Captain David Watson, Captain Dement, of Maryland, and there were some others whose names I have forgotten. At the time of our capture Colonel Dahlgren had about six hundred cavalry under his command. As soon as we were captured we were mounted and carried off by the enemy. Towards evening a light rain set in and the night was very dark. Early in the night all the officers who had been captured made their escape except Captain Dement and myself. While we were preparing to make our escape the Yankees stopped, struck up lights, and camped or bivouacked, and then, discovering that the rest of the officers had made their escape, had us closely watched. They started from their place of encampment before day the next morning, and a little after sunrise halted in
