had much to do with the evacuation of Westover, as it made McClellan feel that his shipping was insecure. Two days after, he took possession of Coggins's Point, and maintained a force on the south side till he left the river. His gunboats were attacked at the mouth of the Appomattox, and points were selected for the further harassing of his shipping. An expedition was sent out, under Colonel J. R. Chambliss, to within two miles of Suffolk. Arrangements were made for the defence of the Blackwater, Chowan, and Tar Rivers, and a point selected for fortifications on the Roanoke to secure Weldon. On the twenty-first August, I left Petersburg to join the army in Northern Virginia, and was given command of McLaws's division and three brigades of my own division at Hanover Junction. The brigades of Ripley and Colquitt, of my division, were in advance of us, at Orange Court-House. On the twenty-sixth August, we left Hanover Junction, and joined General Lee at Chantilly, on the second

from my headquarters to his own brigade. The batteries of Braxton, Pegram, McIntosh, and Crenshaw were gallantly served during this fight, and did yeoman's service. The battle being thus gloriously won, my men slept among the dead and dying enemy. My loss was one hundred and ninety-nine killed, thirteen hundred and eight wounded; total, fifteen hundred and seven, of which Gregg's brigade lost six hundred and nineteen. The brave Colonels Marshall, of South Carolina, and Forbes, of Tennessee, were killed; Lieutenant-Colonel Leadbetter, of South Carolina, also met a soldier's death. Colonels Barnes, Edwards, and McGowan, Lieutenant-Colonels McCorkle, Farron, and McCready, and Major Brockman, of Gregg's brigade, were wounded. The stubborn tenacity with which Gregg's brigade held its position this day, is worthy of highest commendation. Ox Hill.

, under your orders, in command of thirty-two field guns and four siege pieces. Although you had on the day previous shown me General Lee's letter suggesting that I would have charge of the expedition, it was there for the first time made known to me that you designed the attack to be made at night, and showed me some sketches of Coggin's Point, a sort of peninsula, round which the James River sweeps, diminishing its width to about a thousand yards, and directly opposite to which is Harrison's Landing. Beyond this landing were large encampments of the enemy, his shipping extending above and below for a distance of two miles. No time could be lost; so, in company with General Pendleton and some of his field officers, I proceeded to examine the ground, and select positions for the guns, and observe the enemy. This reconnoissance occupied us until about nine o'clock, and caused a delay in the advance of the artillery. On our return we met the advance guns, and ordered them to be hal

I must also express my obligations to Lieutenant Tennible, Ninth Georgia regiment, who aided me, and bore himself gallantly under the murderous fire at Manassas, after Lieutenant Hardwick, Acting Assistant Adjutant-General, was wounded. I am, sir, your obedient servant, George T. Anderson, Colonel Eleventh Georgia Volunteers, commanding Brigade. Report of Brigadier-General Toombs. Washington, Georgia, October 25, 1862. Brigadier-General D. R. Jones: General: The day that the army, commanded by General Lee, left Leesburg and marched toward Maryland, you notified me that I was assigned to the command of a division composed of my own brigade, General Drayton's and Colonel G.

White Plains (Virginia, United States) (search for this): chapter 88
There was more or less skirmishing at this point until the afternoon of the twenty-sixth, when the march was resumed, crossing the Rappahannock at Hinson's Mill Ford, six miles above Waterloo. A dash of several squadrons of Federal cavalry into Salem, in front of us, on the twenty-seventh, delayed our march about an hour. Not having cavalry, I was unable to ascertain the meaning of this movement; hence the delay. This cavalry retired, and the march was resumed, resting for the night at White Plains. The head of my column reached Thoroughfare Gap about three o'clock P. M. On the twenty-eighth, a small party of infantry was sent into the mountains to reconnoitre. Passing through the Gap, Colonel Beck, of the Ninth Georgia regiment, met the enemy, but was obliged to retire before a greatly superior force. The enemy held a strong position on the opposite gorge, and succeeded in getting his sharpshooters in position on the mountain. Brigadier-General D. R. Jones advanced two of his b

On the sixteenth of August, 1862, in pursuance of the commanding General's (R. E. Lee) secret instructions, I put this brigade on the march for the vicinity of Raccoon Ford, near which point the army under his command was rapidly concentrating. General Fitzhugh Lee was directed by me to proceed the next day from near Davenport's Bridge, opposite Beaver Dam, across to the vicinity of Raccoon Ford, where I promised to join him on that evening, (seventeenth.) I proceeded, on the cars, directly to the commanding General, whom I found near Orange Court-House. My command was now augmented by the addition of another brigade, Robertson's, and it was intended to concentrate the bulk of this force near Raccoon Ford, cross, and attack the enemy's communications in rear of Culpeper Court-House, simultaneously with a blow by the main body in front.

took up line of battle on the right of the turnpike, and slowly advanced into the woods bordering it, supposed to contain the enemy. Night coming on and no enemy being visible, my troops were withdrawn to the road for bivouac. Captain Thurston, ordnance officer of my division, was here captured while carrying my orders, riding into the enemy's lines by mistake. Remaining in position at Ox Hill during the second, I marched, on the third, for Leesburg by the Dranesville road, crossing Goose Creek, and reaching that place on the evening of the fourth.
