round:— Such is the death the soldier dies. Robert Burns Wilson. The volunteer ‘At dawn,’ he said, ‘I bid them all farewell, To go where bugles call and rifles gleam.’ And with the restless thought asleep he fell, And glided into dream. A great hot plain from sea to mountain spread,— Through it a level river slowly drawn: He moved with a vast crowd, and at its head Streamed banners like the dawn. ‘Such is the death the soldier dies’: Confederates who fell in Ewell's attack on May 19, 1864 His musket dropped across him as he fell, its hammer down as it had clicked in that last unavailing shot—here lies one of the 900 men in gray and behind him another comrade, left on the last Spotsylvania battlefield. In the actions about Spotsylvania Court House, of which this engagement was the close, the Union army lost about fifteen thousand. With sympathy for the last moments of each soldier, such as Robert Burns Wilson has put into his poem opposite, the horror of war

hich were the subject of dispute, did not take place as General Johnston had originally announced, and, instead of his attacking the divided columns of the enemy, the united Federal army was preparing to attack him. Here our army occupied a position which General Johnston describes as the best that he saw during the war, but owing, as he represents, to an expressed want of confidence on the part of Lieutenant Generals Hood and Polk in their ability to resist the enemy, the army was again (May 19, 1864) ordered to retreat beyond the Etowah. General Hood, in his official report, and in a book written by him since the war, takes a very different view of the position in rear of Cassville, and states that he and General Polk explained that their corps were on ground commanded and enfiladed by the batteries of the enemy, therefore wholly unsuited for defense, and, unless it was proposed to attack, that the position should be abandoned.

We did not have the big battle which I expected yesterday, as, on advancing, we found the enemy so strongly entrenched that even Grant thought it useless to knock our heads against a brick wall, and directed a suspension of the attack. We shall now try to manoeuvre again, so as to draw the enemy out of his stronghold, and hope to have a fight with him before he can dig himself into an impregnable position.
