comfortable, but it is the post of duty. Night. The long day has come to an end, and we are all safe. Again I have to thank our Heavenly Father for throwing around me the shield of His protection. For twenty-four hours we have been under a constant fire. All through the night and all through the day the sharp crack of the rifle has resounded along the lines of the belligerents, and death-dealing bullets have been aimed at human targets; and yet we are all here to answer to roll-call. May 28th.—The enemy attacked us on the left with artillery about seven o'clock this morning, shelling our brigade (Donelson's, which was posted in line of battle about one mile in front of the breastworks. As we had no artillery, we were compelled to retire; but, receiving re-inforcements and a battery, advanced, and regained our former position, and held it during the day. The shot and shell fell thick and fast around us; the solid shot tearing up the ground at our feet, and the shell bursting ove

arly's division, and the Twenty-first Georgia regiment to Doles' brigade. We moved to Hanover Junction, where my corps took the right of the line. After some days' skirmishing we marched towards the Totopotomoy. When we removed, I reported to the general commanding that in consequence of a severe attack of diarrhea, I would leave General Early in command while the troops were on the march, and on Friday I rode in an ambulance to Mechanicsville, remaining in my tent Saturday and Sunday, the 28th and 29th May. On Sunday I reported that I would be on duty in two days more, and sent a certificate of Staff-Surgeon McGuire to the same effect. The commanding general relieved me on Sunday, placing General Early in temporary command of my corps. I reported for duty on Tuesday, four days after my attack, and remained over a week with the army, wishing to place the question of health beyond a doubt; but the change of commanders was made permanent, and on the 14th June I was placed in comma

gether with the sharpshooters, who had gradually worked themselves forward through the felled timber, told fearfully upon our light guns. Here Captains Bradford and Sparkman, commanding light batteries, were both wounded, the latter mortally. At ten o'clock next morning, a flag of truce came in from General Banks, asking for an armistice till 2 P. M. to bury his dead. This was acceded to by General Gardner, and the time was subsequently extended to 7 P. M. On Thursday morning, the 28th of May, a formal flag having been presented by General Banks and accepted by General Gardner, a cessation of hostilities was agreed upon until 7 o'clock, beginning at 12 M. During this time the Infirmary Corps of each army was permitted to remove their dead or wounded from the field. Two-thirds of the loss sustained during the siege of Port Hudson by the left wing occurred on this day. The casualties were almost entirely confined to the Tenth Arkansas, Colonel Witt—eighty (80) killed, woun

an ample supply of blasting material. It would have been necessary to have prepared for this work long before the propriety of it was decided upon at Richmond As it was, I was not ordered to destroy it until it was too late, and it was not until I had left Grafton and the road was occupied by United States troops, that I received the order specially to destroy the Cheat bridge. (See order of Council accompanying, dated June 1st, received June 5th.) Immediately upon my arrival at Philippi, May 28th, I sent a company, in command of one of my best officers, Lieutenant Chenowith, to destroy this bridge, the Cheat, a strong iron bridge, but they failed to accomplish it. This was several days before I received the order to do so from Richmond. It seemed to be thought that I had only to apply the match to bridges and tunnels already mined and blow them up. The labor and material for such work were left out of view. The destruction of this road, however, west of Grafton, between that town

iers in the Confederate States army. The act of May 16, without further action, made them generals, and it was so understood, as it appears that on July 20 Davis notified Johnston, in answer to an inquiry made while he was marching to reinforce Beauregard at Bull Run, in July, that he ranked as general. This was before any nominations were made. Yet on the 31st of August President Davis nominated five generals, to rank as follows: 1. Samuel Cooper, May 16. 2. Albert Sidney Johnston, May 28. 3. Robert E. Lee, June 14. 4. Joseph E. Johnston, July 4. 5. Gustave T. Beauregard, July 21. This action of the President greatly incensed Johnston. Under the law he claimed that he was the ranking general, and on September 12 protested to the President in very strong language against his illegal action in the arrangement of the commissions. Johnston felt that he had been wronged. But he says in the Narrative that there was no language in his letter which could be construed a
