eral A. L. Long, General E. P. Alexander, General J. B. Hood, General Henry Heth and others, and in the official reports of nearly all of the prominent officers engaged. Meantime, it ought to be said that the charge, so freely made, that the censure of General Longstreet originated with those who opposed his political course, is utterly unsustained by the facts. The charge that Lee lost the battle of Gettysburg by obstinately refusing to take Longstreet's advice was first published by Swinton, in his book, Army of the Potomac, which appeared in 1866, and the author gave General Longstreet as his authority for his statements. Soon after General Lee's death, there was published in the papers (presumably by General Longstreet's authority), a letter written soon after the battle of Gettysburg by General Longstreet to his uncle, in which he clearly makes the charge against Lee, and intimates that if he (Longstreet) had been in command victory, instead of failure, would have resulte

The death of General Longstreet and of General Gordon has caused some confused statements about the generals and lieutenant-generals of the Confederacy, and it may be well to give the full list in the order of their rank: The full generals were— 1. Samuel Cooper. 2. Albert Sydney Johnston. 3. Robert Edward Lee. 4. Joseph E. Johnston. 5. P. Gustave T. Beauregard. 6. Braxton Bragg. General Provisional Army, E. Kirby Smith.

Confederate Generals are all passing away. Rev. Dr. J. William Jones writes The Times-Dispatch this interesting letter in connection with the death of General Gordon: 1. In publishing my sketch of General Gordon, your printers make me quote from General R. E. Lee, instead of General R. E. Rodes, as saying in his official report: Colonel Gordon handled his regiment in a manner that I have never seen nor heard equalled during the war. Gordon's regiment was in the brigade of the gallaest military critics of his times. He certainly cannot be charged with partisan prejudice. I have thus given a summary of the literature of Gettysburg that any one wishing may investigate the questions involved. And all parties should be willing to rest on the record as it has been already made up. But if there is to be further discussion, there are certain important facts never before in print which I shall ask the privilege of giving. J. Wm. Jones. Richmond, Va., January 12, 1904,

Richard H. Anderson. 16. Alexander P. Stewart. 17. Nathan Bedford Forrest. 18. Wade Hampton. 19. Simon B. Buckner. 20. Joseph Wheeler. General John B. Gordon was appointed lieutenant-general by President Davis just after his brilliant capture of Fort Stedman, but his commitrue of General Fitzhugh Lee, who commanded the cavalry corps after General Hampton was sent south. The full generals have all long since crossed the river, and of the lieutenant-generals, only General S. D. Lee, General S. B. Buckner, General A. P. Stewart and General Joseph Wheeler remain. And alas! the major-generals, the brigadiers, the other officers of the field and staff, and the rank and file of the Confederate armies are stepping out of the ranks so rapidly, that soon there will

Gordon was appointed lieutenant-general by President Davis just after his brilliant capture of Fort Stedman, but his commission did not reach him before the evacuation, and although he commanded a corps for some time, and on the retreat was put by General Lee in command of one wing of the army, he always wrote major-general as his real rank. The same practically was true of General Fitzhugh Lee,
