But the whole Federal advance glanced off, as it were, and, changing its direction, it turned toward the Federal line in front of Fairview, where it approached the position of Knipe's and Ruger's brigades of Williams's division of the 12th corps. Hearing their noisy approach, and believing them to be Confederates, the Fairview guns and infantry opened fire upon the woods, while the approaching lines were still so distant that they we

admirable. Ewell, as before told, was ordered to attack with Johnson's division when he heard the sound of Longstreet's guns. Ewell says that later his instructions were modified into making a diversion, but Lee's report does not recognize such modification. Ewell interpreted his orders as calling only for a cannonade. It must be admitted that any serious attack by Johnson would have been suicidal. The enemy's lines were of exceptional strength, which is noted in the Federal reports. Ruger, for instance, thus describes the position of his division. Breastworks were immediately constructed of logs, rocks, and earth along the whole line, and at the gap in the line caused by the swale, so as to give cross fire in front of gap. In rear of breastworks of 1st brigade, about 75 yards and nearly parallel therewith, was a stone wall, behind which the second line of the brigade was placed. In front of the line of the 3d brigade Rock Creek was from four to six feet deep, with muddy b

tterance. Banks seemed brooding over thoughts he did not reveal; he was spiritless and dejected. His mood depressed me, and I hastened to return to my command. At about ten o'clock at night I received a note containing instructions sent to Colonel Ruger of the Third Wisconsin, Headquarters, 9.45 P. M. Colonel Gordon: Sr,--I sent a note about an hour ago to Colonel Ruger to halt.

Perkins, Major, etc. from which I inferred that possibly Banks had obtained further information, and that now I might press my views with better success. First I called upon Major Perkins, the chief of General Banks's staff. Finding that my suspicions of the strength and purposes of the enemy were shared by him, I asked Perkins if he agreed with me in the advice I had given. Replying that he did, I asked him if he had urged Banks

s]; I must have more force. I sent him a brigade. --Banks before Committee on the Conduct of the War. At five o'clock in the afternoon Crawford was ordered to advance through the woods, preparatory to an attack on the enemy's left flank. Colonel Ruger, commanding the six companies of the Third Wisconsin Regiment of my brigade, had swept with his skirmishers through the woods between my position and the wheat-field, without finding the enemy, when General Williams received orders from Banksawford himself, in violation of military law and etiquette, had ordered the Wisconsin companies to join his troops then filing into the woods for the general charge which Banks contemplated making all along his line. To Crawford's unlawful order Ruger replied that he was momentarily expecting orders from General Gordon, his brigade-commander, and suggested that before taking his regiment from the brigade it would be better to have superior authority ; Wisconsin in the War, p. 253. but at t

bout three P. M. Schofield became convinced that Hood would make no attack at Columbia, but was pushing his principal columns direct upon Spring Hill. He thereupon gave orders for the withdrawal of Cox's force at dark, and pushed on himself with Ruger's troops to open communication with Stanley. The head of the main column followed close behind. Schofield struck the enemy's cavalry at dark, about three miles south of Spring Hill, brushing them away without difficulty, and reaching Spring Hill at seven. Here he found Stanley still in possession, but the rebel army bivouacking within eight hundred yards of the road. Posting one brigade to hold the road, he pushed on with Ruger's division to Thompson's station, three miles beyond. At this point the camp fires of the rebel cavalry were still burning, but the enemy had disappeared, and the cross-roads were secured without difficulty. The withdrawal of the force at Columbia was now safely effected, and Spring Hill was passed withou
