    We take the liberty of giving our readers the following interesting letter—not intended for 
    publication—from a friend of his who is a member of the 6th N.C.R. because it is the first 
    intelligence we have received since the battle.  It will be seen that the “bloody 6th” maintained 
    fully its high character.  The letter is dated 31st of August from the battle field.
    Probably you would like to hear from the old 6th and also from the ever famous “old 3rd Brigade” 
    and the “invincible division” of Whiting consisting of the “old 3rd” and the “Texas brigade”.  
    General Whiting being absent sick, General Hood commanded the division and Col. Lane 
    the “old 3rd”.
    On the 22nd and 23rd of August, the 6th N.C.R. participated in the skirmish which drove the 
    enemy from the ford on the Rappahannock at Gaines farm.
    On the 20th, the Regiment supported the battery in the center and was shelled in the evening 
    very severely. A gallant skirmish was kept up until nearly dark by Company A, Lt. J. Calder 
    Turner and Company I, Lt. W.B. Allen, the men firing until their muskets were so hot that they 
    could scarcely handle them.  About nightfall, our skirmishers having been recalled, the enemy 
    advanced to take possession of the heights we occupied.  We ran up from behind the hill, gave 
    them a deadly volley, charged them over a mile, when we were compelled to halt as we had 
    advanced beyond support and our brigade consisted of only four regiments of not over 500 
    men each.  We captured the battery which had fired on us all day.  Our regiment took the 
    colors of the 58th Pennsylvania and the 4th Alabama and 11th Mississippi, also capturing a 
    stand of colors of the 2nd Mississippi and took two guns.
    While we were halted in the corn field, waiting for reinforcements, which should protect our left 
    flank, our regiment was charged by the 25th New York but we gave them a fire which soon 
    hushed their “Hurrah for the Union”. At the same time the 4th Alabama was charged by a 
    squadron of cavalry all of whom were captured.  About an hour after reinforcements came up 
    and we fell back to our old position late in the night.
    We took the adjutant general who stated that our column was too heavy for General King who 
    had only 16 regiments.  He was thunderstruck when he found out that they had been whipped 
    by four little regiments.  Col. Lane, commanding the brigade, behaved most gallantly and 
    maneuvered the brigade well and so did Major Webb of our regiment.
    Next morning (30th Aug.) they opened a most terrible fire of artillery on us which was kept up 
    all day by the rifles.  We kept up a continuous skirmish each company going in turn one hour 
    at a time.  Their heavy musketry opened on our left from the hill where we could distinctly see 
    everything.  Because we had fallen back Pope thought we were whipped.  He formed an 
    immense column to charge our left.  They moved down in fine order but received a fire which 
    drove them back in utmost confusion.  Their charge laid their left flank open to us and General 
    Longstreet ordered a rifled battery, our brigade supporting it and they opened and the Yankees 
    In a few minutes we advanced to the top of the hill and opened again; a battery replied and we 
    took an awful shelling but with little loss.  Then we formed a line of battle and advanced towards 
    a Yankee battery which opened upon us and also two regiments; but we drove the two 
    regiments off in fine style.  We then kept advancing until we slept on the battlefield at 
    Manassas which was strewn thicker than on the 31st July.
    A Yankee battery was placed exactly where it was last year—two battles upon the same 
    ground, same result and similar in other respects.  Captain White of Alamance was severely 
    wounded in the arm and it was felt it will have to be amputated.
    A Yankee surgeon captured this morning (2nd Sept.) says there was no use in trying to 
    conceal the fact that the rout was worse than last year.  Yesterday morning a small fight 
    occurred here.  The Federal General Kearney was killed and his body is in our possession.  
    General Hatch was also killed.
    They are retreating and burning up their stores and baggage and I doubt whether we capture 
    much.  We are now near Fisher Court House resting and General D.H. Hill’s fresh troops are 
    I forgot to say that the enemy turned their whole battery on Lt. Turner and Allen while 
    skirmishing throwing grave into them heavily.  A regiment of infantry then tried them but to 
    no avail.
    It will gratify you to know Major Webb, commander of the regiment, was superb and was 
    complimented by all and yet the Journal says he is incompetent. We learn that Captain 
    York acted as major during the battle and behaved admirably.

    The following letter is from the 6th N.C.R. and an active participant in the bloody fight at 
    Manassas to his father in this city and we are permitted to publish it.  As yet, we have 
    seen nothing from our other regiments in the battle but we are assured no N.C. regiment 
    was behind the others in courage.
    Battlefield Manassas Plains
    Bivouac, 6th N.C.
    Sunday, 31st August
    Dear Father:
    It is now raining at 8:00 am and I suppose that it should stop our chase after the Yankees.  
    We have had four days hard fighting on the plains of Manassas.  Yesterday at 4:00 pm the 
    rout commenced.  Our loss has been severe but quite small in comparison to that of the 
    enemy which cannot be less than 15 to 20,000.  Our generals, officers and men have 
    made harder marches and fought more bravely than I suppose troops ever did and 
    thanking Heaven’s God has given us the most complete victory of the war.  I am sincerely 
    thankful I am still alive and able to say that while our company has been in the hottest of 
    the fight none have been killed and no one from our section wounded too much if any 
    extent though I cannot be positive as none are present this morning all from our 
    neighborhood having been left some three miles back where we supported a battery and 
    received the severest cannonading I ever heard except on the same hill the day before 
    where our company with Company A must have gained some honor.
    Ten of our company have followed me entirely through, while the company has been smaller 
    and many from that number sick and barefoot while other larger companies with the same 
    excuses have come out without any officers and much fewer men.  Old Wake may be justly 
    proud of the N.C. Grays.
    You may understand that those of the company from the Carey district are unhurt.  Captain 
    York has been and is now acting major—he is unhurt and well.  Henry Pickard, John Pickard, 
    T.L. and W.T. Clements and W. Maring are slightly wounded.  Several others complain of 
    being wounded by concussion but I consider these as too slight to be mentioned among the 
    wounded.  I would give you a detailed account of our trip and the last two days fighting with 
    the positions but have just been given orders to be ready to move and I suppose in a short 
    time we will be at it again and hardly stop, if forced to, before we get to Washington.
    Hoping these few lines hastily written may reach you soon and relieve you and others of 
    much uneasiness.
    I Remain,

    The losses of the 34th Regiment in the late battle around Manassas will be found in another 
    column. This is the first official news we have received from a North Carolina regiment after 
    the battle.  It will be seen that our friend Colon Reddick is again severely wounded, having 
    but a short time ago recovered from his wound received in the Richmond battles.  The officers 
    of that regiment, we have observed, are one of the most prompt of the North Carolina troops 
    in reporting the condition of their regiment.  We should like to see their course imitated by 
    all the rest.

    1st September, near Fairfax Court House:
    Wounded:  Major B.Y. Graves, severely, Captain P.D. Headly, slightly, Captain J.B. Beall, 
    slightly, Lt. G.T. Clayton, severely
    Up to the present, it is exceedingly difficult to ascertain with any certainty the fate of thousands 
    of our brave soldiers.  We hear the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 13th, 14th, 15th and 24th 
    and 32nd have been terribly cut up.  In the Middleton fight on Sunday, General D.H. Hill’s 
    division was mainly composed of N.C. and in the Sharpsburg fight most of our regiments 
    participated being embraced in D.H. Hill’s, Longstreet’s and A.P. Hill’s divisions.  Thousands 
    were killed, wounded or missing, and we hear that most of the regiments were reduced fifty 
    and other smaller numbers.  We hope this is an exaggeration.
    Of the Raleigh Rifles and Oak City Guards, we learn little except rumors but they are generally 
    represented as being severely decimated.  Captain Jones and Lt. Beavers, Raleigh Rifles are 
    said to be missing.  Lt. P. Hardy, reported at one time to be wounded, is said to be safe having 
    been detailed for other duty—the same is true of Sgt. S. Lemay of the Oak City Guards.
    The Ellis Light Artillery seems to have been more fortunate.  This company, we learn, was 
    engaged in the fight at Harper’s Ferry, Sharpsburg and Shepardstown.  On account is that Lt. 
    Wrenshall was wounded severely but not mortally.  Another one is that since leaving Virginia, 
    they had lost 14 horses, 2 caissons and five wounded, Lt. Wrenshall being the only name
