d in the afternoon it became apparent that our forces had possession of the summit, which commands Harper's Ferry as well as Loudon Heights. That night and the next, the entire division, except that portion of it occupying Loudon Heights, were placed in a strong position to prevent the escape of the enemy down the right bank of the Potomac. At daylight on the fourteenth, I sent Captain French, with two Parrott guns and two rifle pieces of Branch's battery, under Lieutenant Martin, to London Heights, where I immediately proceeded and placed them in position. I informed Major-General Jackson of this by signal, and awaited his instructions. In the mean time, we had attracted the notice of the enemy, who opened their batteries upon us; and it became necessary either to reply or withdraw our pieces. About one o'clock P. A., I therefore gave orders to open fire upon the enemy's batteries and the troops upon Bolivar Heights, beyond Harper's Ferry. Our guns were served admirably and wi

Captain Wright, of Georgia, commanding my escort, was invaluable to me, and proved himself a cool, clearheaded fighter. My thanks are due my staff for their hearty cooperation and intellsburg, except as to the part taken by Trimble's brigade at Sharpsburg, as General Lawton, who commanded his brigade until the twenty-ninth of August, is absent in Georgia, wounded, and Colonel Douglas, who commanded the brigade from the twenty-ninth of August to the seventeenth of September, was killed at Sharpsburg on that day, anit being broken back to guard against a flank movement. The Twenty-eighth was posted to the left of the Seventh, in the opening caused by the withdrawal of a few Georgia troops. Although annoyed by the enemy's sharpshooters, we held our position until ordered to fall back on the night of the eighteenth. We did not cross the rive

to do with the evacuation of Westover, as it made McClellan feel that his shipping was insecure. Two days after, he took possession of Coggins's Point, and maintained a force on the south side till he left the river. His gunboats were attacked at the mouth of the Appomattox, and points were selected for the further harassing of his shipping. An expedition was sent out, under Colonel J. R. Chambliss, to within two miles of Suffolk. Arrangements were made for the defence of the Blackwater, Chowan, and Tar Rivers, and a point selected for fortifications on the Roanoke to secure Weldon. On the twenty-first August, I left Petersburg to join the army in Northern Virginia, and was given command of McLaws's division and three brigades of my own division at Hanover Junction. The brigades of Ripley and Colquitt, of my division, were in advance of us, at Orange Court-House. On the twenty-sixth August, we left Hanover Junction, and joined General Lee at Chantilly, on the second September,

ks, they closed up like veterans, and marched on without confusion, or in the least losing distance. The rifles went down near to the river, and drove the enemy into the water, most of them being either killed or drowned. The brigade lay under a terrible fire of shells all day, and at dark returned to bivouac. The loss of the brigade was sixty-three killed and wounded, mostly in the Fourteenth. Among the killed being the brave, generous, and efficient Captain James H. Dunlap, of Laurens, South Carolina, who was blown to pieces by a shell; and among the wounded was Lieutenant D. H. Hamilton, Jr., Adjutant of the First South Carolina volunteers. On Sunday, the second November, occurred the affair at Castleman's Ford, near Snicker's Gap. Gregg's and Thomas's brigades, accompanied by a battery of artillery, were thrown forward as a sort of picket, to secure that ford against any effort General McClellan (who was reported to be at Snickersville in force) might make to pass the moun

immediately replied, and continued their fire until the line was broken and the enemy recoiled. At this time the enemy were distant less than one hundred yards. Our ammunition was exhausted. One of Captain Garden's guns was dismounted, the carriage being entirely destroyed; another rendered utterly useless by the bursting of a shell; while from one of Captain Reilly's pieces all the horses had been killed. But three guns remained fit for service, and they were without ammunition. Having run the pieces to the rear by hand and secured our disabled guns, the enemy all the time advancing and firing upon us, I ordered the batteries to retire. In passing to the turnpike, Lieutenant Ramsay, in command of the rifle section of Captain Reilly's battery, came up to our support. At that time the enemy occupied the position we had just left, and were advancing in line. I ordered Lieutenant Ramsay to take position in the field to the right of the road, and open, which he did, soon breaki
