Captain Dement's First Maryland battery, Captain Brown's Chesapeake artillery, (also from Maryland,) Captain D'Aquin's Louisiana battery, and the rifle gun of Captain Latimer's battery, were posted in a line from the main road, on the left, to the mountain on the right, and as far forward as Majors's house. Captain Latimer, with three guns, and Lieutenant Terry, with Captain Johnson's (Bedford) battery, were stationed, by the Major-General in person, on Slaughter's Mountain, near the mountain house. From these positions, the several batteries named opened upon a large body of cavalry in front as soon as the infantry opened upon their advanced guard from the woods on the left. The cavalry having at once fled, and the enemy opening with several batteries in our front, and beyond effective range of our guns, I ordered the batteries in the plain to cease firing, and

Taliaferro, whose brigade, during the remainder of the action, was commanded by Colonel A. G. Taliaferro. In the mean time General Ewell, with the brigades of Trimble and Hays, reached the north-west termination of Slaughter's Mountain, and upon an elevated spot about two hundred feet above the valley below, had planted Lattimer's guns, which opened with marked effect upon the enemy's batteries. For some two hours a rapid and continuous fire of artillery was kept up on both sides. Our batteries were well served, and damaged the enemy seriously. Especial credit is due Major Andrews for the success and gallantry with which his guns were directed until he was severely wounded and taken from the field. About five o'clock, the enemy threw forward his skirmishers through a cornfield, and advanced his infantry, until

Its commander in this action, Captain William F. Brown, who is over sixty years of age, displayed great coolness, courage, and energy. He is eminently deserving the command of a regiment, and I recommend him for promotion to fill the first vacancy that may occur among the field officers of the regiment. Captain Lilly, of the Twenty-fifth Virginia regiment, with a small body of his regiment, (Twenty-fifth Virginia,) including the color-bearer, attracted my attention by the gallantry displayed by them in advancing among the foremost after the regiment had got into disorder. A body of men, from the Twenty-first Virginia regiment, around their colors, advancing in the same way, attracted my attention by their gallantry. I was particularly struck by the bravery exhibited by the color-bearers of these tw
