"Stonewall" Jackson', Officlal Account] A contemporary manuscript titled "Report of the battle of McDowell by Lieut. General T.J. Jackson", in an unknown hand, Ilpp, folio, Head Quarters, 2nd Corps, A.N. Va., March 7, 1863. Although there are no corrections in Jackson's hand this is most Ukely an official Battle report, perhaps the earliest and best written account of this important engagement. Reads in part: "General [Brig. Genl. R.H. Chilton, A.A. & I Genl., Hdgrs D.N. Va.] I have the honor herewith to submit to you a report ofthe operations ofmy command in the battle of McDowell High/and County Va., on the 8th ofMay, 1862. After the battle ofKernstown, I returned in the direction of Harrisonburg. My rear guard comprising Ashby's Cavalry, Capt. Chew's battery. and from time to time other forces. was placed under the direction ofCol. Turner Ashby. an officer whose judgment, coolness & courage eminently qualified him for the delicate & important trust. Although pursued by a greatly superior force under General Banks, we were enabled to halt for more than a fortnight in the vicinity of Mount Jackson ... The main body ofGeneral Banks'pursuing army did not proceedfurther south than the vicinity of Harrisonburg. But a considerable force under the command ofGeneral Milroy, was moving towards Staun­ ton, from the direction ofMonterey, and as I satisfactorily learned, part ofit had already crossed to the east ofthe Shenandoah... The positions ofthese two Federal armies were now such that ifleft unmolested, they could readily form a junction on the road just named and move with their united forces against Staunton...To avoid these results I determined...first to strike at Milroy, and then to concentrate theforces ofEwell, Johnson. & my own against Banks... General Johnson, accompanied by a party ofthirty men and several officers with a view to a reconnaissance of the enemy's position, ascended Sittington's Hill, an isolated spur ofthe Bull Pasture Mountain, on the left ofthe turnpike and commanding a full view ofthe village ofMcDowell. From this point the position and to some extent, the strength ofthe enemy could be seen... The enemy observing the reconnoitering party, sent out a small body of skirmishers which was promptly met by the men with Genl. Johnson and driven back, For the purpose ofsecuring the hill all of Genl. Johnson's regiments were sent to him [a typical Jackson ploy of throwing a whole body of troops at the enemy's side at one time} The 52nd being the first to reach the ground was posted to the left as skirmishers. and it was not long before they were engaged in a brisk encounter with the enemys skir­ mishers whom they handsomely repulsed... Thefire was now rapid and well sustained on both sides, and the conflict fierce and sanguinary. In ascending co the crest ofthe hillfrom the turnpike the troops had to pass through the wood... The engagement had now not only become general along the entire line but so intense that I ordered Genl. Taliaferro to the support of Genl. Johnson...At this point the Federals were pressing forward in strong force on our extreme right with a view to flanking that position, This movement of the enemy was speedily detected and met by Genl. Taliaferro's brigade, and the 12th Ga...Genl. Johnson, to whom I had entrusted the management ofthe troops engaged. proved himselfeminently worthy ofthe con­ fidence reposed in him, by the skill, gallantry, & presence ofmind which he displayed on the occasion. Hav­ ing received a wound near the close ofthe engagement which compelled him to leave thefield, he turned over the command to Genl. Taliaferro. During the night the Federals made a hurried retreat towards Franklin in Pendleton County leaving their dead upon thefield. Before doing so, however. they succeeded in destroying most of their ammunition. camp equipage. and commissary stores which they could not remove. Official reports show a loss in this action ofseventy-one (71) killed, and three hundred and ninety (390) wounded. making a total loss offour hundred and sixty-one...·" He goes on to name the other wounded and assesses the significance of the Confederate victory. An astounding record which may be unique,., ."., , Est 2,000-2,500

To General G.T. Beauregard. With twelve autograph manuscript corrections (three signed "G.T.B.If) in the hand of General Beauregard in pencil; he has also titled the report, "Extracts from Col. Brents Report of the ". this too in pencil. Brent has marked the top of the report, "Copy". An incredible document detail­ ing one of the most significant Battles of the Civil War. Reads in part, .....At 23 min. past 7 o'clock was directed in conjunction with Col. Augustine to move on the Hamburg road towards our right & ascertain the condition ofaffairs in that Quarter. Proceeded on the Hamburg Road to its intersection with a road reported by a guide to be one leading to the Shiloh road. We moved along that towards the front until we discovered the right of the 1st line of battle resting on or near this road en l'air. The right consisted of General Gladden sBrigade. the right ofwhich was Col. Adams'Regt. Being informed by Col. Adams that there were no troops on his right, we proceeded towards the direction ofLick Creek which was distant according to the information ofthe scout I mile. We went about 5-1 mile when the movement ofthe enemy infront indicated by their music and the command ofofficers induced us to return Genl. Gladden's right. About this time IS min. to 8, the sharp rattle ofmusketry was heard along the centre & left & in a minute the enemy on Gen. Gladdens right & at a distance ofabout 250 yards opened heavyfire. Col. Adams behaved with coolness & gallantry. Our right pressed on & the second line ofbattle was moving rapidly up to the support ofthe 1st. At 25 min. past 8 0 'clock I reachedyour HdQrs and reported. At 20 min. past 9 we movedfrom HdQrs No.1 & I was directed to advise Dns Choppen & Brodie thereof& where you could befound. At 5 min past 10 was ordered to direct Gen/. Trabve to sendforward two Regt. ofhis Brigade to the centre which was executed at 13 min. past 10.....

Lengthy description of the Battle of Shiloh apparently from Beauregard's aide. He writes in part, "Resuming the series of my recollections ofim· portamfacts connected with your service in West Tennessee in the spring of1862, which you have asked me to communicate in this manner...Having determined upon the evacuation ofColumbus [Mis-) you detached a Brigade of that garrison, to hold...the position ofIsland 10 and New Madrid... The other part ofMajor General Polk's forces, some nine or ten thousand men, were gradually transferred in the direction ofCor­ inth, Mississippi, a point at which the Mobile and , and the Memphis and Charleston Railways in· tersect each other. In the same quarter, meanwhile, were assembled some regiments drawn from New Orleans, together with the forces which General Bragg had brought from Pensacola and Mobile... This con­ centration was with the view to meet and baffle the evident offensive purposes for which the Federal Army was transferred from Fort Donelson on the Cumberland to Pittsburg Landing on the west bank ofthe Ten· nessee River...

23 [The Battle of ShUoh·Lew Wallace] Autograph manuscript unsigned (probably in the hand of Lew Wallace, Brigadier General, author of Ben-Hur), 2pp, 4to. An apology for his ..apparent mistake when Wallace reached the battlefield a day late, "At about nine o'clock in the morning 0/ the 6th (of April 1862 when Wallace was to have come up on Sherman's right flank) Gen. Grant in person ordered Gen. Wallace then at Crump's Landing six miles below Pittsburg Landing, to hold himselfin readiness to move in any direction. The final order reached him at halfafter eleven. Unfortunately the messenger who brought it committed a fatal mistake. Gen. Grant had sent him to tell Wallace to march to Pittsburg Landing: the instruction he delivered however, was a direction to march and gain the right ofthe army which when the battle began was in position/our miles outfrom Pittsburg Landing on the road to Dundy. Wallace promptly obeyed the order as received. Taking the directed road to the designated point ofjunction, he had madefive miles, when he was officially informed that the right ofthe army had been driven back to Pittsburg Landing. The conse­ quences ofthe mistake were now instantly manifest: to go on was to plant his little column offive thousand men in view afthe whole victorious rebel army, where it would be lost. The trial ofjudgment was a sore one; he adopted the prudent course and resolved to execute the spirit ofthe order byforming thejunction at Pitts- burg Landing. That compelled a counter march ofthefive miles already made Wallace arrived a day late but gave Grant valuable support. A most important commentary , Est 300·350

2S Pierre G.T. Beauregard. Major General, CSA; commanded the Army cfthe Tennessee. Manuscript Signed, on last page nf thirty·six (36) leaves, entitled, The Explosion of the MIne Before Petenburg/July 30, 1864, folio, [marked "N.O. Nov.l84" in pencil at bottom of last leaf). A brilliant analysis, both shocking and thorough, of perhaps, next to two other battles, the most brutal and sanguine failure of the Federal military strategists. Undoubtedly this great historic manuscript was prepared for publication so practically every passage is quotable. We will remove from context just a small portion of the manuscript body. Beauregard begins with the background of the participants, giving positions of troops both Confederate and Federal. He sums up the spirit of the Confederate Army which lasted in some cases long after Appomat­ tox: "...the two Corps then consisting ofthe Army ofNorthern Virginia with the exception ofsuch Forces as were left North ofthe James for the safety ofRichmond were in and around Petersburg. The odds were still great against us; for the enemy outnumbered us by at least thirty thousand men. But there existed now a feeling of confidence and relief which partly compensated for the anxiety experienced hefore. More even than their Commanders did our troops-and more than the troops did our people-believe that. with the ad­ dition ofthat heroic army, we could not be driven from the position we then held. The reliance ofthe enemy in the impregnability ofhis lines was. no doubt, equal to ours... The Siege ofPetersburg, second only in im­ portance to that ofCharleston had begun. On one side were thefour best Corps ofthe Army ofthe Potomac, under the immediate command of General Meade. On the other side was the Army of Northern Virginia­ added to which was my small force-commanded by General Lee... .. Beauregard's troops watched the Federal miners dig a trench which he describes: "... It extended beneath Elliott's Salient. and went no further from it than about one hundred seventy yards. Its lateral galleries startedfrom that point. diverging some thirty-seven feet towards the left, and perhaps a little more towards the right. They formed together 'the segment of a circle concave to the Confederate lines'; and contained eight magazines ofabout one thousand pounds ofpowder ea'ch, connected with one another by means of troughs halffilled with powder, and meeting all at the inner end ofa main gallery, ofsome 150feet in length. from which three lines offuses, for a distance ofninety-odd feet. had been prepared. Three hundred and twenty kegs ofpowder. of twenty:five pounds each, had been used in the charge ofthree magazines... ,. There was a great confusion on the part of the Federal forces which later was attributed to the poor Com· mand of General Leslie and general drunkeness among the regulars.

Va., January 30th 1863, written over seventeen pages, quarto, ink smudges on first page. A dramatic description of the Battle of Fredericksburg in which over two hundred thousand troops par­ ticipated; 114,000 Federal, 72,500 Confederate. Jackson describes the opening of the Battle: .....About ten o'clock as the fog disappeared, the lines ofthe enemy. arranged in order ofbattle.. were distinctly visible in the plain between us & the river, covering my front and extending far to the left towards Fredericksburg. The force in from ofme, I supposed, to number about fifty-five thousand. The batteries ofPelham with the Stuart 'Horse Artillery were soon engaged with the artillery ofthe enemy and a brisk & animated contest was kept up for about an hour. Soon". the enemy directed his artillery at the heights held byWalker, and upon the wood generally. occupied by our troops. evidently with a view ofcausing us to disclose whatever troops or artillery were there. Not eliciting any response the enemy was seemingly satisfied that he would experience but little resistance to an effort to obtain possession ofthe Hill...he advanced in line ofbattle across the plain straight upon the position occupied by Walker. His batteries reserved theirfire until the enemy's lines came within less than 800 yards, when the 14 guns opened together, pouring such a storm ofshot & shell into his rank as to cause him first to halt, then waver, & at last seek shelter byflight... .. The total casualties for both sides amounted to over 18,000 men killed or wounded. Among these was the Confederate General Maxey Gregg. At the end of several days there was nothing really gained by either side-the Federal army was still in the city of Fredericksburg, the Confederate Army commanding the hills outside the City.

To Brigadier Gent. R.H. Chilton, 23pp, folio. Unsigned, no notations in Jackson's hand. Gives positions of troops both Union and Confederate and describes the Battle: .....1 accompanied the movement ofthe main body ofthe Army to Middletown. Upon arriving there we found the Valley Turnpike crowded with retreating Federal Cavalry upon which the batteries of Poague and Chew, with Taylor's infantry promptly opened, and in a few moments the turnpike, which hadjust before teemed with life presented a most appalling spectacle ofcar­ nage & destruction...A train of wagons was seen disappearing towards Winchester, and Ashby, with his cavalry, some artillery, and a supporting infantryforce from Taylor's Brigade. was sent in pursuit. But afew moments elapsed before the Federal Artillery which had been cut offwith the rear of the column opened upon us with evident intention to cut its way through to Winchester. Our batteries were then placed in posi­ tion to return the fire, and Gen. Taylor was ordered with his command to the attack. After a spirited resistance. this fragment of the Federal army retreated to Strasburg, then made its escape through the mountains across the Potomac. A large amount ofbaggagefell into our hands...Entire regiments, apparent­ ly in line ofbattle laid down their knapsacks and abandoned them...From the attack upon Front Royal up to this present moment every opposition had been borne down...and there was reason to believe, if Banks reached Winchester, it would be without a train, ifnot without an army...Genl. Elzey...eagerly uniting in the general advance, soon entered Winchester with the other troops. On the right the attack under General Ewell was executed with skill and spirit. The 21st N.C. and 21st Georgia gallantly drove back the advance post ofthe enemy. The 21st N. C. soon became exposed to a destructive fire from a Federal regiment posted behind a stone wall, and after suffering severely in both officers and men was forced tofall back. The 21st Ga. having succeeded in driving that regiment from its shelter, reinforced its brigade. With the 1st Md. Regiment on his left, and Trimbles Brigade on his right, Genl. Ewell now moved towards the eastern brigade was so gallantly crossing the hill and charging towards the western side ofthe town. This simultaneous move­ ment on both sides of his flanks. by which his retreat might soon have been cut off, may account for resistance which it made whilst passing through the town... The Federalforces were now in full retreat... The public property captured in this expedition at Front Royal, Winchester, Martinsburg, & Charlestown, was ofgreat value. and so large in quantity, that much ofit had to be abandonedfor want ofnecessary means of transportation The medical stores. which filled one of the largest storehouses in Winchester, were for- tunately saved Perhaps the best available account of events leading up to and including the Battle of Winchester Est 1,000·1,500 25 182 [Death of Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson] Capt.

Major General Hardee's advance extending from the Bark Road a short distance towards my left constituted the first line.

At great length Ruggles describes how he positioned his troops in the First Division, and writes several times of the fierce fighting, "...the first Brigade (Gibson's) united with Brig. Gen.

The fire of this Battery and a charge from the 2nd Brigade put the enemy toflight-Even after having been drawn back/rom this position the enemy rallied and disputed the ground with remarkable tenacityfor some two or three hours against ourforces infront and his right flank where Cavalry. Infantry and Artillery mingled in the conflict. As the enemy finally gave way 1 directed the movement ofthe second Brigade toward the right along the crest ofthe ridge following the line ofthe enemy's continued resistance, and sent a section ofKitchum 's Battery into action on a road leading towards Pittsburg in a position overlooking the broken slope below...Discovering the enemy in considerable numbers moving through the forest on the lower margin ofthe open field infront. I obtained Trabue's and Stanford's Light Batteries and brought them intaction and directed their fire on masses ofthe enemy then pressingforward towards our right. engaged in afierce contest with ourforces then advancing against him in that direction. For a brief period the enemy apparently gained ground, and when the conflict was at its height these Batteries opened upon his concentrated forces producing immediate commotion and soon resulted in the precipitate retreat of the enemy from the contest... ..
