gallantly to his rescue, and with Pender's and other brigades of Hill's division, drove the enemy headlong from the field. Major Andrews having taken sick at Gordonsville, Captain John Ashford was in command of 38th, and received commendation from General Pender for his coolness and skilfulness in handling his men. D. M. McIntyre was now adjutant, having been promoted on July 9th, for gallantry and efficiency. On account of ill-health, Major Andrews resigned his commission, and on the 21st of August, Captain John Ashford was promoted to major. Jackson made a wide circuit behind the mountains to cut the Federal communications at Manassas. On the 26th Pender's Brigade gained a splendid victory over a brigade of the enemy at Manassas Junction. Jackson's single corps, numbering less than 16,000 men was resisting General Pope's entire army. On the 28th the command formed line of battle for the memorable second battle of Manassas, which was a series of battles for three days. Pende

It did the same thing again at Jericho Ford, on the North Anna, on the 23d of May, and on down at Turkey Ridge on the 9th of June, on the route to Petersburg, around which city, at Battery No. 40, on the 22d of July, Archer's Farm on the 12th, 13th, 18th, and 19th of August, Davis House 21st of August, Jones House 30th of September, Squirrel Level Road 1st of October, Pegram (or Dabney) House 2d of October, Burgess' Mill 27th of October, Jarratt's Depot 10th of December, Crow House 6th of February, 1865, Hatcher's Run 7th February, Five Forks April 1st, Appomattox April 8th.

About the middle of June we participated in the battle of Petersburg, where Colonel Harris was severely wounded in the head. The regimental officers were at that time M. B. Harris, colonel; S. B. Thomas, lieutenant-colonel; J. R. Bell, major, and E. Howard McCaleb, adjutant. On the 18th of August we retook the position occupied by General J. V. B. Girardey's Georgia Brigade, on the north side of James river, in front of Richmond; returned to Petersburg, on the south side, and on the 21st of August fought the battle of the Weldon Railroad, where the writer was severely wounded, left for dead on the battlefield, and taken North, without his consent, to spend the winter. From the 30th of July to the 21st of August, 1864, Harris' Mississippi Brigade lost 14 killed, 103 wounded, and 131 missing in battles around Petersburg. During this time Lieutenant-Colonel S. B. Thomas, than whom a braver or truer soldier never existed, commanded the bloody 12th Regiment. I cannot speak of the op

le regret. We love to fight for patriotic Winchester and her peerless women. We camped one mile from Winchester on the Berryville pike and cooked our rations. Lieutenant-General Anderson, with Kershaw's infantry and Fitz Lee's cavalry, arrived from Lee's army. Their ranks are much depleted, but a very small re-inforcement will greatly encourage and help our sadly diminished command. To-day, August 19, we marched to our familiar old camping ground, the oft visited Bunker Hill. On August 21 we marched through Smithfield, and halted about two miles from Charlestown, where old John Brown's body once was mouldering in the ground, but is now marching on to h–ll. Our gallant division sharpshooters, under Colonel J. C. Brown, of North Carolina, those from our brigade, under Major Blackford, of the Fifth Alabama, and our regiment, under Lieutenant Jones, Company I, skirmished vigorously the rest of the day. The firing was fierce and continuous. The Yankees fell back towards Harp

The enemy attacked us, but were repulsed, and during the rest of the war our side held the railroad. In this battle Company E—the Somerville company—sufofficers of this regiment reported for duty. On the nights of August 18 and 19 the wounded were sent back to the Division Hospital, two miles in our rear. On August 21 the wounded, of whom I was one, were sent to the City Point Hospital on the James. On August 23 we turned out, and were told to get ready to go on board a boat pounds. But thanks to a kind doctor and home nursing, the wound finally closed in April, 1865, the same month that the war closed. Account of Company E after August 21.

On the 21st of August, Bragg's army crossed the Tennessee, above Chattanooga, near Harrison—an operation which occupied considerable time, as he was not provided with a sufficient quantity of bridge equipage, and was obliged to convey all his troops from one bank by Smith was about to surrender the principal part in the drama to the two large armies which had just come upon the scene under the orders of Bragg and Buell. We left the Confederate general crossing the Tennessee, above Chattanooga, on the 21st of August, at the head of about forty thousand men. An almost impenetrable barrier of rugged mountains separated him from the left of the Federals. Since the 19th of August the latter had got wind of his preparations for crossing that river, but were

On the 21st of August five or six vessels loaded with troops entered the estuary of the Bogue River; starting from Beaufort, some had steered between the downs and the mainland, while the others had taken the open sea, so as to re-enter by way of Bogue Inlet. Immes of equal magnitude upon the people of the South. On the 3d of August, Congress authorized the President to raise four hundred thousand volunteers to serve for not less than twelve months and not more than three years, and a few days later, August 21st, another law was passed regulating the formation of special volunteer corps destined for certain local defences, such as that of the ports and coasts.
