tzhugh Lee. On the evening of the twentieth, the command moved from Shepherdstown and encamped near the Opequon, in the vicinity of Martinsburg. We remained near Martinsburg until the twenty-seventh, when we moved to Bunker Hill, in the County of Berkeley. The official list of casualties of my command, during the period embraced in this report, will show that we sustained a loss of thirty-eight officers killed and one hundred and seventy-one wounded, of three hundred and thirteen non-comms good address and consummate skill, captured the picket, and we soon found ourselves in the midst of the enemy's encampments; but the darkest night I ever knew. Fortunately, we captured, at this moment, so critical, a negro who had known me in Berkeley, and who, recognizing me, informed me of the location of General Pope's staff, baggage, horses, &c., and offered to guide me to the spot. After a brief consultation, it was determined to accept the negro's proposition, as whatever was to be don

y division, and placed in charge of the department of the south side, extending from Drewry's Bluff to the South Carolina line. As General McClellan was then at Westover, on the James, some thirty miles from Richmond, and it was thought he might attempt an advance by the south side, my first attention was given to the defences in submitted. This officer had charge of the expedition, agreeably to the wishes of General Lee. Doubtless the night attack had much 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 n readiness, and finding the enemy had not discovered us from reconnoissances in their balloon, at four P. M., Colonel Brown proceeded to Maycok's farm, opposite Westover, with twelve guns; Colonel Coleman followed to Coggin's Point, with eight twelve-pounder howitzers; Major Nelson, with eight guns, to a position on his left, hig

n, and, through you, that of the General commanding, to the injustice which (unintentionally, no doubt) has been done to the brigade I have the honor to command. The report says: General Hampton's brigade had retired through Martinsburg on the Tuscarora road, when General Stuart arrived and made disposition to attack. This phraseology implies that the enemy had advanced on Martinsburg through my lines, and had driven in my brigade. The following statement will show that such was not the case in position on a hill commanding both the Winchester and Tuscarora and Romney roads, and between the two. All of the brigade, except the First North Carolina regiment and the squadrons on picket, was drawn up as a support to their guns on the Tuscarora road, in advance of the camp of the North Carolina and South Carolina regiments. From this position I wrote to Colonel Lee, telling him that we could retake the town; and the letter was given to one of his pickets, who failed to send it to the

, with the main portion of Robertson's brigade, except the Seventh Virginia cavalry, (Jones's,) and Lee's brigade, except the Third Virginia cavalry--say about fifteen hundred men, and two pieces of artillery. Proceeding through the village of Jefferson, part of the command crossed the Rappahannock at Waterloo bridge, and the remainder at Hart's Mill, a few miles below, and took the direct road to Warrenton. Reaching that place in the afternoon, I halted to close up and obtain information. N leave my small division in the immediate presence of a very strong force of the enemy, and, while it would be engaged in destroying the aqueduct, in a most exposed and dangerous position. I therefore determined to rejoin General Lee by way of Jefferson and Middletown, as previously instructed by him. Before marching, however, I received instructions to cross the Potomac at Cheek's Ford and proceed toward Harper's Ferry, and cooperate with Major-Generals Jackson and McLaws in the capture of

There are particular reasons why Irson, marched through Harper's Ferry from Pleasant Valley, and halted near Halltown, a short distann to look after the sick and wounded from Pleasant Valley, when notice was sent me to hasten the trsing Bull Run at Sudley Ford and reaching Pleasant Valley that night, the next day, September first

We semy, who were in the wood beyond the field of corn. On passing beyond the small cluster of woods, to the right of the Crenshaw battery, we saw the enemy retreating in confusion before Captain Turner's skirmishers. We continued to advance until we under my command,) A. P. Hill's light division, moved from its bivouac, between Gordonsville and Orange Court-House, to Crenshaw's farm, near the Rapidan river, where it remained until the twentieth of August, when, crossing the river at Summersvillore reported. I carried four of my batteries into the fight at Sharpsburg, viz., Braxton's, Pegram's, McIntosh's, and Crenshaw's; Captain Davidson's was left at Harper's Ferry with General Thomas's brigade.

rigade. Captain Taliaferro, A. A. G. Taliaferro's Division, Army of the Valley: Captain: I have the honor to report that on Wednesday, August twenty-seventh, 1862, my command, the Second brigade of this division, consisting of the Twenty-first, Forty-second, and Forty-eighth Virginia, and First Virginia battalion, with two batteries, marched from Manassas Junction about dark. The Forty-eighth and Forty-second Virginia had been, during the day, on picket on the Blackburn's Ford and Union Mill road. Marching by the Sudley road, and passing the Chinn house, I reached the Warrenton road after midnight. I was then ordered by Brigadier-General Taliaferro, commanding division, to proceed with my command down the Warrenton road, toward Gainesville, and picket and hold it and a road cutting it at Groveton at right angles, and which led from the Junction also to Sudley Ford. I did so, holding Groveton as my reserve, throwing out pickets toward Manassas and down the turnpike, and pushi

ordered to prevent a landing at City Point. An effort was made to organize and make efficient the numerous independent companies in the department, which had been of little use and much expense to the country. A concentration of these troops at Weldon and Goldsboroa was ordered to prevent the cutting of our important lines southward. In accordance with instructions from the General commanding Army of Northern Virginia, I made a personal examination of the Yankee shipping and encampment, on pping. 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.

In a short time they returned, and, to my great surprise informed me that the enemy had crossed the bridge; and in a few moments they appeared between me and the town, not more than six hundred yards from the latter. This forced me to recall my squadron, and to send the gun into town, the only position in which it was available. Placing my guns in position here, I ordered my wagons to go by the Romney road (as I had agreed with Colonel Lee to do) to Darksville. The First North Carolina, with two guns, was sent as an escort for the wagons, and to hold the Winchester road, where the cross-road intersected it, in case I should have to fall back. After my wagons had all got off, and messages had been sent to bring in my pickets, (all of whom had to retire by Hedgesville, as the enemy had got completely in their rear,) I withdrew my two remaining guns from the town, as I was very unwilling t
