ptember 22, 1891.] Memorial stone to their heroism erected in the Wilderness—their devotion to General Lee. On May 6, 1864, the advanced forces of the Army of Northern Virginia confronted the army of General Grant in the Wilderness of Spotsylvania in its grand move on to Richmond. General Grant had two days before successfully, without opposition, crossed his army over the Rapidan at Ely's and Germanna fords and was marching towards Gordonsville. Ewell with the Second corps—Stonewall Jackson's old command—occupied the left on the Confederate front, covering the old turnpike, and in his advance was first to meet and check the enemy. His corps had been in winter quarters about Orange Courthouse, and hence was nearest to the enemy. Longstreet, with his corps, was in winter quarters about Gordonsville, and did not arrive upon the scene of impending conflict, on the Confederate right, until May 6th, when he arrived in time to give much needed relief to the troops of A.

The speech of General Early (as I have seen it reported) at Lexington oshed in single handed and been smitten as with fire, and their gallant Colonel Fisher and many of his men were no more. Jackson and his glorious brigade were struggling like giants to withstand the fierce onslaught. The words of Bee. It was jed promptly, Yes, General, we will go wherever you lead, and do whatever you say. Bee then said, pointing towards where Jackson and his men were so valiantly battling about a quarter of a mile to the west and left of us, Yonder stands Jackson like Jackson like a stone wall. Let us go to his assistance. Saying this, he dismounted, placed himself at the left of the Fourth Alabama, and led the regiment (what remained of them) to Jackson's position and joined them on to his right. A charge. Some oth

threatened part of his line of battle. Then he was magnificent. His hat jammed down over his eyes, his eyes bright and his long moustache waving in the air gave him an odd look, while the terrific pace of his steed was appalling. He overcame every obstacle with ease, and it was a beautiful sight to see his horse go flying over fences, ditches or fallen trees, while the rider sat in the saddle with ease and apparent reckless indifference. Lieutenant-General Thomas Jonathan (Stonewall) Jackson was a great horseman. He sat in the saddle easily, while there was a sort of abandon visible which showed his familiarity with horseflesh from boyhood. His seat was very erect, and though it had none of the stiffness of the cavalry style, it was very correct. His stirrups were shortened to give a slight bend to the knee and enable him to adjust his body to the movements of his steed without apparent exertion.

as relieved of duty by the return of Major Hill, and went back to my brigade, which had lost its beloved Branch at Sharpsburg, and was now under command of Brigadier-General James H. Lane, who had earned his promotion while in command of the Twenty-eighth North Carolina, one of the regiments of that hard-fought brigade. Closing incidents. The battle of Fredericksburg passed and so did the winter, when the spring-time called us to Chancellorsville, the sad scene of the wounding of Stonewall Jackson. General Hill was wounded near the same spot and about the same time. He was not in command for a day or so, but was an interested spectator of that heated engagement which was under the direct command of General J. E. B. Stuart. This over, a reorganization, so to speak, took place. General A. P. Hill was made lieutenant-general and W. D. Pender major-general of Hill's Light division. From then on I only saw General Hill occasionally. But our friendship—for it was nothing less th

In the spring of 1863 he was the chief commander of the cavalry of Bragg's army, then at Tullahoma; he had as brigade commanders Armstrong, Jackson, Cosby and Martin, and with about eight thousand men, was preparing to move across the Ohio. His command was bivouacked in the fertile region of Middle Tennesseeen Columbia and Nashville, Tenn., in 1863, or as to the precise composition of his command at that time, yet I remember that it contained the brigades of Forrest, Jackson, Armstrong, Whitfield and Cosby, numbering, perhaps, seven thousand effectives—cavalry and artillery; and I can no doubt give you with tolerable accuracy the main be entirely accurate in all I have said, but substantially it is correct. If, however, you wish to be minute, you had better send this to General Forrest or General Jackson, either of whom can verify it or correct any inaccuracy of my memory if it be at fault.

Night stopped this memorable battle, and the vanquished Federals withdrew from the front of the victorious Lee. Jackson's proposition. Those that were not killed in front of Marye's Heights, with the remnants of Warren's and other corps, were huddled in the streets of Fredericksburg, demoralized and panic stricken, and it was at this time that General Jackson proposed to General Lee to turn the coats of his men inside out, so that they could distinguish each other, enter the town, and drive the Federals into the river. General Lee's consideration for the women and children that were compelled to remain within the Federal lines prevented this movement, and during the night Burnside withdrew his defeated army to the north side of the Rappahannock.

To the Editor of the Dispatch: Will you inform some friends of your paper who were the professors at the Virginia Military Institute in the years 1848, 1849 and 1850; also when Stonewall Jackson first entered the Institute as a professor, and what branches he taught? We have a lot of rusty Virginians out here who have lost their reckoning, several who were of the class of 1861, and left with Colonel Allan to join the Confederate army. A Subscriber from Idaho. At the July meeting of the Board of Visitors in 1851 Thomas J. Jackson was added to the Academic Board as professor of natural and experimental philosophy and instructor of artillery, with the rank of major. The other information asked for is as follows: 1848.—Board of Visitors: General Corbin Braxton, president
