on our pickets, and attempted to cut off our train of wagons. Our regiment was ordered to support the pickets, which it did, lying on its arms nearly all night. Some time after midnight our main guard was driven in, and the regiment double-quicked half a mile to meet the enemy. There was a sharp skirmish for a few minutes, and the enemy were routed. We took one prisoner and captured two horses. During this skirmish, Lieutenant Trice, of company G, was badly wounded in the neck. Lieutenant Winston, of company A, was also wounded. The army, or at least one portion of it, had a long and distressing march on the ninth, to the field where, on that evening, was fought the battle of Cedar Creek--distressing on account of the excessive heat, and scarcity of good water. The brigade reached the battle-field about four o'clock. This regiment, which had been on the left during the day, was detached and sent to the right, where it was ordered to lie down in the woods just in rear of Peg
g testimony to the gallant conduct of Semmes's, Anderson's, and Barksdale's commands, whose timely arrival was of so much service to me. I can also bear testimony to the gallant deportment of Colonels Grigsby and Stafford, and the men under their command. Major-General Stuart, with the pieces of artillery under his charge, contributed largely to the repulse of the enemy, and pursued them for some distance with his artillery and the Thirteenth Virginia regiment, under the command of Captain Winston. The conduct of my own brigade was all that I could have desired, and I feel that it would be invidious to mention individual acts of courage where all behaved so well. My Acting Assistant Adjutant-General, Major Hale, and my Aid, Lieutenant Early, were very active in bearing my orders under fire, and were of great service to me. The loss in my brigade in this affair, and under the shelling to which it was exposed while supporting General Stuart early in the morning, was eighteen kill
nearly opposite the head of McLemore's Cove, a valley formed by Lookout Mountain and a spur of the main ridge called Pigeon Mountain, and the other at or near Colonel Winston's, opposite Alpine. During the ninth, it was ascertained that a column, estimated at from four thousand to eight thousand, had crossed Lookout Mountain int, were received during the tenth, and it became certain that he was moving his three columns to form a junction upon us, at or near Lafayette. The corps near Colonel Winston's, moved on the mountain towards Alpine, a point twenty miles south of us. The one opposite the cove continued its movement, and threw forward its advance to the whole engagement my command was almost continually within range of the enemy's cannon, and, at times, suffered severely from it. My Ordnance Officer, Lieutenant Winston, during and after the engagement, collected and hauled from the field one thousand stand of small arms. Several small squads of prisoners were taken by m

The 2d corps near Mechanicsville, to hold the crossing opposite thereto and that at Meadow bridge, and prepared to move instantly to the support of the 5th and 6th corps. The 6th corps through Atlee's Station to the Fredericksburg and Richmond turnpike, to occupy the Virginia Central Railroad and Winston's bridge, and, leaving a sufficient force to hold that point, to move either direct upon the line of the Fredericksburg and Richmond Railroad south of Ashland, or to support the 5th corps in the direction of Hanover Court-House, as circumstances might have required. The 5th corps would have followed the line of march which Morell's division pursued on the 27th, sending a detached brigade direct from Old Church to Hanover Court-House; and having reached the Central Railroad and the Freder

enemy deploying his force in the open country, and steadily driving back the brigades of Adams and Starke in their front, their troops being in full view. This day's operations, from actual observation and from information derived from scouts and prisoners, both on the flank and rear of the enemy, fixed Sherman's force as consisting of two corps (of two divisions each), commanded by Major-Generals McPherson (Seventeenth corps) and Hurlbut (Sixteenth corps); a brigade of cavalry, under Colonel Winston; about forty pieces of artillery, with a considerable wagon train. The entire force was estimated at twenty-six thousand (26,000) effectives. The skirmishing on this day was handsomely done, as the large force of the enemy was visible to almost every member of the Confederate States command. An incident near the old battlefield of Baker's creek is worthy of being recorded. The enemy, deployed, was moving forward. Adams' brigade, dismounted, was hotly contesting their advance thro

ch acting with the most conspicuous coolness and bravery. To these officers I am indebted for most important services on that day. Lieutenant-Colonel Boyd and Major Winston, Forty-fifth North Carolina regiment, were both wounded, the former severely and the latter painfully, on the first day. Major Winston, however, notwithstanMajor Winston, however, notwithstanding the painful character of his wound, did not quit the field, but remained with his regiment until late in the engagement of the 3d July, when a second wound, more severe than the first, compelled him to retire; both of these officers were wounded while leading their men in an advance upon the enemy.

of Lookout Mountain. The forces on the Hiawassee and at Chickamauga Station took the route by Ringgold. A small cavalry force was left in observation at Chattanooga, and a brigade of infantry at Ringgold to cover the railroad. The enemy immediately moved the corps that threatened Buckner into Chattanooga; shortly after, it commenced to move on our rear by the roads to Lafayette and Ringgold. Another corps was nearly opposite the head of McLemore Cove, in Will's Valley, and one at Colonel Winston's opposite Alpine. During the 9th it was ascertained that a column, between four and five thousand, had crossed Lookout Mountain by Stevens's and Cooper's Gaps into McLemore's Cove. An effort was made by General Bragg to capture this column, with intent then to turn upon the others, and beat each in succession. But, some delay having occurred in the advance of our forces through the gaps, the enemy took advantage of it and retreated to the mountain passes. He then withdrew his corps
