y. I sent forward the Thirteenth Virginia regiment, under Colonel James A. Walker, deployed as skirmishers, a short distance into the woods,until it came in sight of the enemy's cavalry. About this time Colonel Walker's skirmishers commenced firing, as did the regiments on the rig Thirty-first, and part of the Fifty-eighth Virginia regiments. Colonel Walker, who was on my extreme left, maintained his position with his rapital fighting men, there being none better in the army. When Colonel Walker is in front, with his men deployed as skirmishers, I feel secur, supported by, I believe, the Thirteenth Virginia regiment, Colonel J. A. Walker, checked them, though their skirmishers got quite near underel, commanding Thirty-Third Virginia Infantry. Report of Colonel J. A. Walker. headquarters Thirteenth Virginia, August 14, 1862.

t who went into the fight, both officers and men, acted nobly and gallantly, still the conspicuous conduct of some of the officers and men, after the regiment became broken, and was acting in independent squads, deserves to be particularly noticed. Captain P. F. Frazier, of company E, individually took a Yankee Captain, a Sergeant, and two privates, while they were retreating from our forces, and delivered them in person (and without any other guard than himself) to General Jackson. Lieutenant A. W. Edgar, of company E, Color-Sergeant W. H. Powell, Sergeant C. S. Davis, Dr. J. B. Patton, and Surgeon Stewarts, only two of the party having fire-arms, one having the colors, and the Lieutenant his sword, at the instance of Lieutenant-Colonel Gardner, went beyond our lines after the fight, and captured a Yankee picket of one Sergeant and twelve privates, all of whom were armed when they were captured. They brought them to the Fourth Virginia volunteers, and delivered them to the guard. M

Such was their steadiness, that I was able to preserve my line of battle, unbroken, throughout the day. Captain J. T. Hawks and Lieutenant J. A.

As he had moved forward before my line was complete, and as I had to move through thick woods, I found myself some distance to his left, on coming into a field, and consequently flanked to the right; but on receiving a request to go to the support of troops in front, whi

It will be hard to supply their places; but they fell on the field of honor, in defence of their homes, their people, their liberty, and all that makes life dear to man, and a grateful country and posterity will award them their meed of praise. Lieutenant-Colonel Curtis, commanding Twenty-third regiment Virginia volunteers, fell, mortally wounded, while gallantly leading his regiment into action. He came to the regiment in September, 1861, from Brooke County, Virginia, a private, and a refugee from the tyrants of the North-west, and, in the reorganization, he was called to the position he so gallantly filled — a fit testimonial by the officers to his gallantry and good conduct. He has fallen far from his home and friends, but will long be remembered by all associated with him in the cause of liberty.

I arrived near Gordonsville on the nineteenth day of July. From information received respecting the strength of the opposing Federal army, under General Pope, I requested the commanding General to reenforce me. He accordingly sent forward Major-General A. P. Hill, with his division. On the second of August, whilst Colonel (now Brigadier-General) W. E. Jones, by direction of Brigadier-General Robertson, was moving with the Seventh Virginia cavalry to take charge of picket posts on the Rapidan, he received intelligence, before he reached Orange Court-House, that the enemy was in possession of the town.
