They approached the beat of Tom M., a humorous Irishman, who was on duty that night. He promptly halted the visitors, and demanded, Who comes there? The answer was given, Grand rounds Instead of halting the grand rounds and directing the approach of one man only, and demanding the countersign (which that night was Austria), he allowed both the visitors to approach together, and on the lieutenant's giving the word Africa, our sentinel responded All right, come along in. The visitors passed in, and then the lieutenant undertook to reprimand him and point out his blunders. When his attention was called to the fact that the wrong countersign was given, the gay sentinel, in the broadest Irish accents, exclaimed, Indade! ah, well, I knew it was one of them demn'd foreign countries.

It turned out that only one regiment (the Fifth, Colonel Harpers, ) lost any men, and that regiment and part of another were all of Jackson's brigade who were engaged that day, besides the one detachment of our company. On the return of this detachment to the company, the boys reported that our captain mixed his commands and his prayers somewhat thus: Aim low, corporal, and the Lepartment, and his place filled by Sergeant———. He remained on the roll as a private till March, 1864. Subsequent rolls show that he was detailed for duty in Quartermaster's Department December 24, 1862; appointed clerk of the Military court of Jackson's corps April 15, 1863, and commissioned first lieutenant of artillery and assigned to duty in Ordnance Department March 26, 1864, in Colonel H.

d never was a fine country so devoid of water as that part of the Valley. There was an occasional fine spring, but they were rare, and very few streams crossed the pike. Canteens, which were in camp voted a nuisance, were in demand on that march. Whilst at Darkesville on 3d July, William Hughes joined the company, also Beverley R. Jones; and on the 5th, William G.

of the historians of the times as follows: Our gallant army, under General Beauregard, has been attacked by the enemy in overwhelming numbers; the commanding-general hopes that his troops will step out like men and make a forced march to save our country. This was certainly the substance of it, and we responded with a cheer and with quickening footsteps. We forded the Shenandoah that night at Berry's Ferry, and reached the eastern side of the Blue Ridge Mountain at a small place called Paris, about 2 or 3 o'clock next morning. Here the company rested till sun-rise, then marched a few miles down the eastern slope of the mountain to a good, old-fashioned country place occupied by a maiden lady. She, and her neighbors who lived further from the road than she did, and who had come over to cheer, or to see, the soldiers as they passed, prepared abundant supplies of food. It was of a sort known as chicken-fixings at first, but as the day wore on and the soldiers, not of our battery
