eeing distance, and then the captain refused to advance to our assistance. By this time the enemy had begun to prepare to charge from two different ways, one in front and one on my left, and as they did so, seeing that further resistance was useless, as our ammunition was exhausted, I ordered Lieut. B. S. Chambers to advance and meet them with a flag of truce, which had been prepared some time before, to be used as the last extremity, and surrendered ourselves to Lieutenant-Colonel Wood, of Adams' rebel cavalry, Colonel Morgan coming up across the field a moment after, we having 1 man killed and 1 wounded and killing 6 of the enemy and wounding 3, and killing five of their horses. We were taken to Pulaski, which we found on reaching to be filled with rebel troops, and on our arrival there found some 150 officers and men from various regiments that had been taken prisoners during the day. After getting us ready to go South, on consultation with Colonels Morgan and Wood they propo

S.-I cannot, however, close without particular mention of the gallantry of Captain Leake, commanding Company C, and Lieut. W. E. Holmes, commanding howitzer battery. [Indorsement.] The two officers therein named, besides Colonel Scott, shall be mentioned in order for gallantry and meritorious service; also the boy who took Lieutenant-Colonel Adams, United States engineer. G. T. Beauregard, General, Commanding. Elk River, Ala., May 2, 1862. General: Since I dispatched you yesterday I have burned the Limestone Bridge, between Decatur and Huntsville. 1 caught two provision trains at the bridge and burned about 20 cars. We killed and wounded there 34 of the enemy. This morning, about 10 o'clock, the enemy's cavalry, about 400 strong, attacked me at Elk River after I had half my command over the river. We r
sent from Jasper by a path through the mountain, which resulted in surprising and capturing the enemy's pickets at the ferry and preventing the further retreat of Adams' men over the river. My main force came by Anderson's road. Colonel Scribner's command is occupying an important point, which I omit alluding to, except by sayin; also a large quantity of contraband stores. The Union people are wild with joy, while the rebels are panic-stricken. Colonel Morgan is in Chattanooga; also General Adams. The enemy's force there is about 3,000, with ten pieces of artillery. The gunboat has not been heard from as yet; we are looking for it this morning. Two srisoners, including a number of prominent officers. Also captured a drove of cattle and a large quantity of horses intended for the rebel army. The defeat of General Adams' rebel forces in Sweeden's Cove was much more complete than reported. He escaped without sword, hat, or horse. We silenced the enemy7s batteries at Chattanoo
the writer's volume in the Beacon biographies, which has guided him in the present sketch. Robert Edward Lee, the third son of the cavalry leader Light Horse Harry Lee by his second wife, Anne Hill Carter, was born at the family mansion, Stratford, in Westmoreland County, Virginia, on January 19, 1807. On Lee was essentially a Virginian Old Christ Church at Alexandria. Virginia. The church attended by both Washington and Lee calls up associations that explain the reference of General Adams. In 1811, at the age of four, Robert E. Lee removed from Westmoreland County to Alexandria, which remained his home until he entered West Point, in 1825. During these years he was gaining his education from private tutors and devoting himself to the care of his invalid mother. Many a Sunday he passed through the trees around this church, of which Washington had been one of the first vestrymen, to occupy the pew that is still pointed out to visitors. The town serves to intensify love
ry service. He entered the Confederate army in April, 1861, as major and chief of the Virginia artillery, being made brigadier-general in June. In November, 1861, he was transferred to South Carolina, and appointed major-general in Confederate generals—No. 11 Louisiana Johnson K. Duncan commanded the River defenses below New Orleans.

His brigade was now wavering before the severe artillery and musketry fire brought to bear against it, when Colonel Daniel W.
