The Fifteenth Virginia. [from the Richmond, Va., Dispatch, November 12, 1899.] Composed of Richmond, Henrico and Hanover boys. Career of this gallant regiment. Incidents of the capture of Harper's Ferry and the bloody battle of Sharpsburg—Colonel Vance and Molly Cottontail. I want to tell what I know about the part taken in the Sharpsburg campaign by the 15th Virginia Infantry, whose rifles cracked from Bethel to Appomattox. There were eight companies in the regiment, organized and composed of men from Richmond and vicinity—to-wit: Company A, Church Hill, city; Company B, Virginia Life Guard, city; Company C, Patrick Henry Rifles, Hanover; Company D, Old Dominion Guard, city; Company E, Ashland Grays, Hanover; Company G, Henrico Southern Guard, Henrico; Company H, Young Guard, city; Company I, Hanover Grays, Hanover.

Imagine the rebel yell that went up when a woman appeared with a pair of tongs, lifted it from the pavement, where the boy had thrown it, and deposited it in the gutter. Colonel Zeb. Vance, the gallant and witty North Carolinian, at the battle of Fredericksburg, where Jackson wanted to drive them in the river, was taking his regiment through a dense thicket and undergrowth, where ole hares were plenty. It was when the fire was heaviest that the little things seemed paralyzed from fear. The boys were so busy picking up and bagging them that they almost forgot the enemy in their front. One old lady, though, didn't lose her head, but took to the rear, and in passing Colonel Vance he put his sword under his arm, clapped his hands, and exclaimed: Go it, old Molly Cottontail! If 'twasn't for honor, I would be with you. James B. Lacy, Late Sergeant-Major 15th Virginia Infantry, Confederate States Volunteers, Army of Northern Virginia.

Grays, Hanover; Company G, Henrico Southern Guard, Henrico; Company H, Young Guard, city; Company I, Hanover Grays, Hanover. Having lost its colonel (T. P. August, wounded) and major (John Stewart Walker, killed at Malvern Hill), the regiment recruited and reorganized, broke camp on August 30, 1862, near Culpeper Courthouse, and started on its eventful march for the first invasion beyond the Potomac. On August 31st we bivouacked at Fauquier White Sulphur Springs, September 1st, at Gainesville, September 2d, at Bull Run, September 3d, at Leesburg, and September 6th, we crossed the Potomac by fording the river—up to our breast. September 7th, we bivouacked near Frederick City, Md., and on the 10th passed through the city. Many rebel flags were displayed from windows and housetops. We did not see or hear of any Federal flags, nor the notorious and much-talked — of Barbara Freitchie. September 11th we crossed South mountain, within six miles of Harper's Ferry, and on the 12th,

Morrison, of Company C, the only field officer being still absent on account of wounds. The regiment was much depleted, and was also worn down from loss of sleepy loss from our ranks had naturally cast a deep feeling of depression over the rest of the little band. The brave Captain E. J. Willis, who took command after Morrison fell, held up his overcoat for me to count the bullet-holes, and I counted about eight.
