lready alluded to,) told us that in shelling the woods to our right front we gave too much elevation, as the majority of our shells passed over them. On going into the woods afterwards, the shell scars still visible on the trees corroborated his statement. Under cover of this fire the Rebel infantry again advance to the assault. They are formed in three solid columns, Cook's and McRae's North Carolina Brigades, under Gen. Heth, and Lane's North Carolina Brigade, of Wilcox's Division, with Pegram's Artillery, composed the assaulting column.—Lee's Official Report. and come as before, at the double-quick, with fixed bayonets, uttering their war-cry louder than ever. Nearer and yet nearer they come. But what can wedo? As we had been unable from lack of ammunition to measure metal with their artillery, so now we have but one round of canister to administer as they cross the field, and keep another—our last—for closer quarters. Our troops have evidently given way, for the enemy have r<

Here fell the Rebel General William J. Pegram, the Boy Artillerist, as his Confederate associates called him. In the spring of 1861, a youth of modest demeanor, he entered the military service as a private soldier; in the spring of 1865, still a mere lad, he fell in action, Colonel of Artillery, mourned by an army. . . . . Such was William Johnson Pegram of the Third Corps, who, at the early age of twenty-two, died sword in hand at the head of his men. Capt. W. Gordon McCabe,in Army of Northern Virginia Memorial volume. The discomfited men of the Maltese Cross now fell back pell-mell upon the position held by the Second Corps on Hatcher's Run.

Lee became convinced that he was going to swing round to turn our right, he therefore ordered the artillery on a portion of our left to be withdrawn from the immediate front so as to be ready to move at a moment's notice. On that night General Johnson, hearing the enemy massing on his front, sent a message to his corps commander (General Ewell) asking the return of his artillery. He also sent to General Gordon, commanding Early's division, asking a reinforcement of two brigades (Hays's and Pegram's), which he placed in a second line on the rear of what he considered the weakest of his defences. The delay of the artillery and consequent disaster to Johnson's division are matters of record. The actual loss in captures was about three thousand men (his division was four thousand strong at the beginning of the campaign) and eighteen pieces of artillery, which the enemy did not get, however, for twenty hours. Johnson's message to his corps commander about the massing of the enemy in h

s he wore and praise from Stonewall Jackson. As the star of the Confederacy set behind the hills of Appomattox and victory no longer perched on the tattered banner of his battalion, the soul of the commander took its flight; and standing before the throne of his Maker, amid the hosannas of the angels, received the reward of the just, well done, thou good and faithful servant. Mr. President, the memorial window you unveil to-day in this house, dedicated to the service of God, to William Johnson Pegram and the two hundred gallant men who died by his side, is a fit testimonial of the respect and love we will ever bear them.

Upon its battle-flag can be inscribed sixty-four engagements, and the battalion was truly, as General Heth's men said, the fighting battalion! The old war battalion flag and the battle flag of Crenshaw Battery were carried by comrades Goolsby and Ferneyhough, and created great enthusiasm along the line of march. These flags were also used as escort to General Joseph E. Johnston when he marched to the monument to unvei
