ot yet restored. Hancock, quick to understand — not more than a quarter of a mile away-hearing a heavy engagement on my front, and judging the firing to be coming nearer and nearer to his position, caused Gibbon to detach the brigade of Colonel S. S. Carroll to my support. Colonel Carroll was at that time a young man of great quickness and dash. His brigade was already deployed in the darkness at right angles to the general front, and swept along northward to the right of Krzyzanowski, pastColonel Carroll was at that time a young man of great quickness and dash. His brigade was already deployed in the darkness at right angles to the general front, and swept along northward to the right of Krzyzanowski, past the cemetery fence and batteries, and on, on, with marvelous rapidity, sweeping everything before it, till by his energetic help the entire broken front was completely reestablished. General A. S. Webb, a generous and cooperative commander, also sent two of his regiments to my aid. The lines were thus reestablished; then, by the help of General Newton, who commanded the Fifth Corps, I was enabled to shorten my front and have sufficient reserves to prevent the possibility of such a break again

orps lay idle! During the night the engineers had traced out a new line three-quarters of a mile to the rear of Chancellorsville, towards the river, and covering the roads to United States and Ely's fords. To this line Hooker had resolved to retire, and he seemed to be incapable of other resolve. Sickles and Berry and French made good fight at their position, receiving Stuart's impetuous attacks; but the result was that, after a severe struggle, Sickles was forced from his front line. Carroll, with a few regiments of French's division, assailed Stuart's left flank, and threw it into much confusion, capturing several hundred prisoners, French drove the enemy, taking about three hundred prisoners and recapturing a regiment of one of the corps in the hands of the rebels.— Couch: Report of Chancellorsville. but that flank being reenforced, Stuart pressed back French in turn, and his right renewed the attack on Sickles. In the mean time the enemy was pressing our left with infantry

t and centre were beaten back. But the right, working its way up under cover of the houses and undulating ground, pushed completely through Wiedrich's battery into Ricketts' battery. The cannoneers of both batteries stood well to their guns, and when no longer able to hold them, fought with handspikes, rammers, and even stones. Hunt: Report of Artillery at Gettysburg. Howard's troops were considerably shaken by the assault; but the firmness of the artillery and the opportune arrival of Carroll's brigade of the Second Corps, voluntarily sent by General Hancock on hearing the firing, repulsed the attack and saved the day. Ewell had directed Rodes' division to attack in concert with Early, covering his right. When the time came to attack, Rodes not having his troops in position, was unprepared to cooperate with Early.—Lee's Report, Ms. But Ewell's efforts did not end here; for at the same time this attack was made, he threw his left division, under General Johnson, up the ravi
