ress, Anderson hotly attacked the Federal front, but there were no North Carolina troops on his part of the field. Before the renewal of combat, Sunday, May 3d, each of the contestants formed new battle order. Hooker drew Sickles back from Hazel Grove in the morning, and posted the whole of Sickles' corps and Williams' division of the Twelfth corps in works on a crest to the right of Fairview, and at right angles to the plank road. Fairview was covered with artillery from the Third, Twelfroad and in the order named from the left. Lane's left was on the road. Trimble's division, under Colston, composed the second line, and Rodes the third. To aid the infantry attacks, thirty pieces of artillery were placed on the eminence at Hazel Grove, abandoned by Hooker's order. The whole line moved forward shortly after daylight, with Remember Jackson as a watchword. The breastworks, where the night attack stopped, were carried after desperate effort. The troops on the left of the pla

claim that he drove the enemy back to Dowdall's is scarcely substantiated. The attack had no particular result. Sickles regained once more his old position at Hazel Grove, which he held until daylight Sunday morning, when he was ordered back to Chancellorsville by Hooker. The latter seemed unaware how important this height mightnday morning at daylight Stuart, who succeeded Jackson, ranged his twenty thousand men opposite the Fairview crest, and supported them by batteries on this same Hazel Grove.

cupied the second line of works near Hamilton's Crossing. In the battle of Chancellorsville it accompanied Jackson in his flank movement, and on the night of the 2d of May it was on the left of Lane's brigade when formed for the night attack. After Jackson was wounded and the night attack abandoned, it was withdrawn from the left of the plank road, and placed on the extreme right of the brigade, with its own right resting on a country road leading from the plank road to a place called Hazel Grove. About midnight, General Sickles, with two strong lines of battle, made his much lauded attack, and was repulsed by the Twenty-eighth and Eighteenth, and a part of the Thirty-third North Carolina regiments, chiefly by the Twenty-eighth. A number of prisoners, including field and company officers, were captured. Company E, of the Twenty-eighth, also captured the colors of the Third Maine Regiment. Early next morning the Twenty-eighth, with the rest of the brigade, made a direct assau

e too long to rehearse the whole story of the Chancellorsville fight. It is sufficient to say that when the field becomes a part of the National Park and is dotted with monuments to mark the positions of the various forces it will be fully as interesting as Gettysburg. There still remain many of the earthworks thrown up by the armies, and the sites of graves are still visible in the woods. The party drove along a road which followed the trenches dug by men of the Twelfth Corps, over to Hazel Grove, which was a conspicuous point during the battle. It is not a settlement, as its name implies, but a solitary farm house on a hill, which was the position of a battery. The magnificent spring which was so useful to the army still remains, giving forth a splendid flow of delicious water. The story of Keenans death. It was very near this farm house that Keenan's Eighth Pennsylvania Cavalry was stationed. The story of the charge of this regiment and Keenan's death is known to every
